Democrat hysteria is a prelude to a death wish?

Roger L. Simon:
Last week I wrote that the Democrats were having a nervous breakdown. I was wrong. It's worse. They actually have a death wish or what Freud called a "death drive" (Todestrieb). They literally want to extinguish themselves and/or their party, or many of them do. At least they're acting that way.

That was the first thing that crossed my mind watching the explosion of demonstrations by liberals and progressives (I'll spare you the scare quotes) across the country evidently mortified that families were being separated at the border -- something that had been happening for decades without their protesting or, in ninety-nine percent of the cases, their even knowing about it. Now it was the greatest cause célèbre since, well, whatever was the greatest cause célèbre three days before.

The polls show the vast majority of Americans think they're cracked and want, as do citizens of almost all countries, secure borders and legal immigration.

So why are they doing this? Do they secretly want open borders? Are they actually wannabe socialist revolutionaries out to change American society at its core? Maybe some are, but if you truly wanted those things, you would behave differently and not so counter to your own interests, alienating with your behavior the very people you claim you want to convince.
...

At this point, they don't know what they want, only what they want to destroy....
...
Part of their problem is that they are facing a Republican leader in Trump who does not stoically absorb the blows from them but counter-attacks in ways they have difficulty dealing with.  They are just not used to the counter punches and they could be like a punch drunk fighter desperate to hang on.   The media certainly is not used to the counter-attacks.  The media has become the defacto leader of the Democrats and it seems to be leading them into their self-destructive mode.

Some think Obama set this reaction in motion by his own conduct.
