Let’s stop pretending that those who repeatedly vote for truly destructive governments are just victims yearning to become “the people.”
The Democrats seem to have taken their cues from earlier totalitarians in the way they have built bridges to the world’s thug population.
Violence is enhancing the power of those who can use it with total impunity.
The opposition has not fought back effectively. It has not been resourceful or relentless enough and has even failed to exercise those limited powers at its disposal to keep the enemy in check.
Contemporary antifascists don’t care much about Hitler’s tyranny, except as an image that can be applied to those whom they want to bully.
Americans have enough going for them as a country to overcome this prolonged bout of postmodern insanity.

Bipartisanship is now a country-club Republican illusion, although one that Democrats periodically trot out when they want the Romneys, Murakowskis, Toomeys, etc. to vote with them.
Let’s stop fixating on Wednesday’s events. We can deplore them once the Left repents of its far, far greater sins.

In Georgia, weak Republican politicians do not show the same iron will and sense of self-identity as do those who are using them.
Perhaps Jonah Goldberg and his allies will be supporting Joe Manchin in the next presidential cycle, unless they decide that Kamala Harris is the conservative they’ve been hoping for.
Appeasement and ingratiating language will not likely change the Left. It will simply embolden it to behave more brazenly.
The leftist alliance is inherently unstable because—outside of hatred, pompous virtue-signaling, and a desire for power—exceedingly little holds it together.
The leftist dictatorship that may befall us will try to preserve certain democratic arrangements pro forma.
