I don’t do well around gore, whether real or fake. I cover my eyes when the dyed corn syrup flows in movies and, unless my children need me, I tend to faint when someone becomes sanguinary in my presence (myself included). In other words, I have a pathetically weak nervous system.
That weak nervous system is activating now, as I watch the Democrats come out with daggers drawn in their determination, not just to win against Paul Ryan, but to eviscerate the Republican candidates with the same glee one sees in Jason, of slasher movie fame (warning: video not for the squeamish):
In this Election 2012 slasher flick, the Democrats have already written the script: Truth is irrelevant. Human decency is irrelevant. The integrity of our political system is irrelevant. Before this is over, Democrats will have the two pro-Life candidates dining nightly on blood sucked directly from the headless bodies of decapitated newborns.
The election, rather than being a discussion about competing values for America’s future, will be a nauseating journey through the most foul corners of the Democrat psyche. And, as is always the case with those functioning out of dysfunction, psychological projection will be the name of the game:
Psychological projection or projection bias is a psychological defense mechanism where a person subconsciously denies his or her own attributes, thoughts, and emotions, which are then ascribed to the outside world, usually to other people. Thus, projection involves imagining or projecting the belief that others originate those feelings.
Which party supports unlimited abortion, with leadership provided by a president who thinks it’s fine for babies born alive to be thrown in the garbage? The Democrats, but we’ll hear that Republicans are murdering children with their fiscal policies.
Which party firmly believes that blacks are so incompetent they cannot function without government patronage? The Democrats, but we’ll hear that Republicans are trying to destroy blacks as part of a grand KKK plan. (And which party gave life to the KKK? Yes, of course — the Democrats.)
Which party supports a government controlled healthcare plan that we know, from the experience of other countries, refuses treatment to the elderly or very sick? Yup, the Democrats, but we’ll hear that Republicans generally and Paul Ryan specifically intend to murder the old and the sick by allowing them to make their own market decisions.
If you’d care to contribute to this list of ugly projection, please do so. I’ll update the post with your contributions. As for me, I spit up a little in my mouth as I wrote this, so I have to stop now.
My hope? That the American people realize that the Democrats are busy creating a horror movie rather than reporting on real life events. With that understanding, voters can grab the popcorn (only not the buttered kind) and enjoy the show, fully appreciating that the blood and guts are corn syrup and plasticine. Otherwise, if the Democrats manage to fool all of the people all of the time, this bloody, nauseating campaign will turn into a true death watch presidency.
