When You Wish Upon A Star

Posted on July 12, 2018 by Robert Ringer


The nonstop jibber-jabber coming from liberals and their media allies has become downright comical.  So much so that, as I predicted would be the case, it’s splitting the Democratic Party apart.

In fact, some Democrats are actually choosing to walk away from their own party.  Yep, we now have the Walkaway Movement — Democrats who are no longer willing to be associated with the self-destructive, hateful rhetoric spewed out by their far-left brethren.

Which raises the question, why can’t the Dirty Dems control their nasty rhetoric when they must surely know they are destroying their own party?  Many believe it’s simply a result of low-information, and, to be sure, it’s pretty obvious that most Radical Left hysteriacs are fact-challenged.  But, even so, it would be a mistake to believe that all lefties are nothing more than low-information hollow vessels.

As difficult as it may be to believe, I think most of the resist-and-obstruct crowd are probably pretty well informed but irreversibly blinded by their hate.  It is hate that motivates them to make fools of themselves no matter how ridiculous their hysterical claims, accusations, and name-calling make them look.

All of which would be bad enough, but what makes these hate mongers totally devoid of credibility is their failure to use discretion in their attacks.  To them, no matter how big or how small an issue may be, they insist on referring to it as world-ending — as in, “Civilization as we know it today is at risk in this election” or “If you vote for Trump, then you, the voter … are standing at the border, like Nazis” or “Trump is using inhumane policies to gin up his base” … etc.

The problem is that if everything is world-ending, nothing is world-ending.  If everyone is a Nazi, no one is a Nazi.  If everything is inhumane, nothing is inhumane.  More generally, if everything is evil, nothing is evil.

But to the Radical Left, none of this matters.  All hysteria, all name-calling, and all lies are equally justified because the moral end (i.e., their end) justifies the means.  After all, if you’re morally superior, the opinions and actions of those who disagree with you are world-ending, inhumane, and/or evil — no debate necessary.

In my view, the phenomenon of nonstop insane allegations and lies by the Radical Left has its roots in a psychological problem.  The psychological problem I am referring to is that when liberals make ludicrous claims, it’s as though they believe that by simply stating something as though it were a fact, no matter how absurd it may be, it will somehow come true — as in …

When you wish upon a star,
Makes no difference who you are.
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you.

This sums up the Radical Left in a nutshell.  They are so desperate to regain power that they seem to believe that by simply saying something is true it will become a reality.  Even communism is now a good thing according to a supposed Democratic Socialist of America chapter co-chair by the name of Olivia Katbi Smith, who Tweeted, “I just wanna set the record straight for a minute: communism is good.”

That’s right, just say communism is a good thing and it will make it so, notwithstanding the fact that communist regimes have killed at least 100 million of their own people over the past century.  Nevertheless, professional agitator Cornell West recently explained to Tucker Carlson that the only reason socialism and communism have failed everywhere is because “the right people” were not in charge.  Too, too funny.

Personally speaking, my two favorite When-You-Wish-Upon-A-Star doozies came from that infamous Royal Flimflam Duo, Michelle the Malevolent and the Prince of Puffery.

From Michelle we got the jaw-dropping words, “When they go low, we go high.”  Scary to think that there are those on the Radical Left who actually believe this 180-degree reversal of the truth.  But, hey, just say it and it will become true, right?

Of course, it would have been more accurate if the Malevolent One had said, “When they go high, we go low.  And when they go low, we go lower.”  Or, even more accurately, “Regardless of whether they go high or low, we always go low!”  The real truth is that Democrats never go high.  Going low is part of their DNA.

But the best When-You-Wish-Upon-A-Star statement of all is when DNC Chairman Tom Perez recently introduced the Prince of Puffery as “the real president of the United States.”  Oh, my, how good that must have felt to the loony left, even if it had a grade-school ring to it.

For one brief, shining moment, looney leftists could pretend that their shiftless community organizing leader was still president.  There’s nothing more warm and fuzzy than a delicious delusion, and, make no mistake about it, everything that is generally believed to be true about Barack Obama is a delusion.

Finally, this brings us to President Trump’s new Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.  Democrats were all worked up about “a potential criminal” being allowed to pick a Supreme Court Justice, and now that it has become a reality, they’re apoplectic.  After all, Trump picked a fascist who “will threaten the lives of millions of Americans for decades” and is Trump’s “get-out-of-jail card.”

But not to worry, because the Dirty Dems have made it clear that they intend to stop Kavanaugh from being confirmed.  And even if he is confirmed, that paragon of goodwill, Democratic National Committee Deputy Chair Keith Ellison, has pointed out that he and his comrades could theoretically impeach Kavanaugh — and, for that matter, all other Republican nominees for the Supreme Court.

So here we are again.  Just as Never Trumpers relentlessly insisted they could stop Trump from getting the Republican nomination at the party’s nominating convention, so, too, the Dirty Dems are talking like they have the power to stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation.  It goes without saying that they do not have any such power, but it feels so good just to say it.

The takeaway is this:  If you worry every time a Radical Leftist makes an outrageous statement that is obviously false, my message to you is simple:  Learn to ignore it!  If wishing upon a star titillates some people, that’s their problem, not yours.  I would suggest that it’s much healthier for your brain if you forget wishes and stick to reality.
