Skip to comments.The Democrats and Their Prophetic Failure. Again.

It was only last October that I diagnosed the Democrats as suffering from prophetic failure. Thats what happens when the prophecies of a religious cult fail to turn up on cue. And why most politicians are sensible enough to say we have only ten years to act before the end of the world. I said back then, the world was supposed to be all tucked up in progressive heaven by now. The arc of history was bending towards justice. Then we got Trump.
In When Prophecy Fails, according to Leon Festinger et al., the believers dont just throw up their hands and go back to ordinary life. Instead they intensify their faith and sharpen up the prophecy. The problem, they decide, is that their faith wasnt deep enough; they didnt read the texts right. It is not till later that they lose heart and #WalkAway.
They sure do. They passed AB5 in California to stop the gig economy, which was viewed as an insult to government employee unions. Only it turns out that the artists, writers, and musicians of the wokerati are hardest hit. They passed gun control measures in newly blue Virginia right after 20,000 2A activists had peacefully protested at the State Capitol. They decriminalized petty crime in California and New York City. Like that will help struggling small businesses. And of course, the granddaddy of them all, they impeached a duly elected President of the United States, for reasons.
These are not the actions of a cunning political party carefully plotting how to win 51 percent of the vote at the next election. These are the desperate actions of a religious cult traumatized by the failure of prophecy. And never mind the science! That mucking around with the labor market hurts people at the bottom.

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
This impeachment baloney is a smokescreen by the Democrats to try and delay or stop the prosecution of the Democrat leaders for crimes they have committed.
“the wokerati” - Like it. Gonna use it elsewhere.
Their fantasy is more important to them than reality. Lies are not wrong as long as the lies support the fantasy.
Contradictory facts must be ignored or “debunked.”
In Leftists twisted minds the end justifies the means.
