The Midterms are Coming! The Midterms are Coming! | Opinion

It’s no secret that the democrats are currently getting demolished in the polls. Maybe it’s because of record inflation, or the gas prices, or the supply chain shortages, or the war, or the fact that a large majority of Americans still believe the 2020 election was stolen that’s causing this train wreck, but regardless of how far down they are, we know the left still have some tricks up their sleeves.

Enter scene: ol’ reliable. Victimhood.

Let’s take a moment to reflect and look back on 2020, shall we? More specifically, the “fiery but mostly peaceful protests.” The leftist elite’s response? Getting dressed up and taking a knee – literally.

The ruling class is polluted with politicians who deal in victimhood to get people reliant on the government. They create and manufacture trauma to instigate rage and division, with the sole goal of giving themselves more power (hello AOC, Pelosi, Schumer, and the rest of you).

It’s Karl Marx reincarnated and the progressive playbook 101. So, with that in mind, here’s your warning shot that the left will not go down without a fight in 2022.

We’re already starting to see some of the bricks laid before our eyes – the manufactured distractions that create a new wave of victimhood, all of which are certainly more important than the economy, your children’s education, or even your own health.

And bet your bottom dollar that the party of the left will attach their names to the latest and greatest cause that gives them the most traction. They will virtue signal and ban anyone who disagrees with them – slapping you with a hate speech sticker, putting you in Twitter jail, and attacking your values.

Even now we see victimology running rampant through our airwaves. Nowadays it’s considered a thought crime to even remotely acknowledge that men are men and women are women. We see this through the outrage over DeSantis and his anti-grooming bill, objecting to Lia Thomas winning the NCAA Women’s Freestyle, or questioning Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s qualifications as a nominee to the Supreme Court after she stated that she could not “define a woman.”

Bottom line? There are many ways to play the victim card.

One can only wonder what’s next.

Onward to fiery, but mostly peaceful midterms.
