The victim card played by the left is legendary. Women victims of evil men, resented and oppressed. Minorities the victims of whites, resented and oppressed. The poor victims of the successful, resented and exploited. LGBT the victims of religion, resented and rejected. The freedom fighter victims of our military, resented and killed.
It goes on and on and on, different variations of the same old tired left-wing saw. So this just had me laughing at how pathetic it all sounded:
Her [Michelle Bachman’s] appeal, of course, is concentrated among Christian conservatives and Tea Party activists — voters whose political engagement is already fueled by intense feelings of resentment and victimhood.
This is what we call ‘projection’ boys and girls. It is a defensive mechanism used to avoid facing the hard truths about one’s self. In this case, how the resentment conjured by decades of victimhood politics from the left has created a set of liberal leaders and policies who are incompetent and prone to horrific failures. Because they reject all that is required of really successful people – to get over the whining and become somebody.
The Tea Party is not based on feeling like victims or resented. It is based on the fact libertarians are tired of funding stupid liberal policies which are destroying this economy. Victims? Only of stupid liberal tricks.
But that is easily fixed at the voting booth, which will produce a large share of political victims – like it did in 2010. Also known as LOSERS!
