The only safety for the conquered is to expect no safety.
It's a community that thought it had taken control over the Res Publica, only to have the cup of victory dashed from its lips. In a sense, liberalism was a religion. Liberals have seen that religion overthrown.
'Puter over at The Gormogons sums up the fall of the modern liberal religion:
A new expression heard often here at Castle Borepatch - rolled out when the next dimwitted leftie jumps lemming-like off the cliff of Madness - is "The Re-elect Trump '20 campaign thanks him for his support". I keep waiting for the grownups to start to reassert some sanity among the left. I keep waiting.Liberals are shocked not because Hillary lost. Liberals are shocked because their belief system died before their eyes. Liberals watched in disbelief on Tuesday night November 8, 2016 as Trump and American voters proved their god a false god, their world make-believe, their most deeply held beliefs falsehoods.Liberals had a choice to make election night and liberals chose poorly. Liberals continue to deny reality, continue to believe their discredited beliefs, and continue to worship their ersatz god politic.Like wounded animals, liberals have spent the last five months furiously lashing out at anyone and anything they believe harmed them. And like badly wounded animals, liberals will either bleed out or be put down.
Maybe like a drunk they need to hit bottom. It's kind of astonishing to contemplate that they haven't hit yet.
