The most striking testimony to the power of the “deep state” may well be the fact that the losers of the last election are actually persecuting the winners of that election and have been for the last year and a half, with no end in sight. Now an Obama appointee has been assigned to investigate the quite probably Obama-led domestic surveillance of an opposition political party.
The good news is that we can now refer to America as a “banana republic” without being called “racist.” (Obviously, using the word “banana” and “Obama” in the same sentence just a few years ago would have brought a flood of castigation and name calling.) Now, having seemingly attained the status of a banana republic worthy of a third-world country seems to be a source of pride for most leftists.
At the end of the day, “liberalism” is an intellectually embarrassing endeavor. Imagine the horror of realizing that your pursuit of “liberalism” has caused you to support the suppression of both free speech and gun rights, as well as the establishment of a police state, as all three are hallmarks of fascism.
