The title of this missive is not wishful thinking. I do believe that the antics and histrionics of the progressive, socialist, left will bring about their demise this November. The ugliness, angst, and anger the left has shown since President Trump’s electoral success almost two years back will be a telling factor.
No, the GOP has not been a strong, conservative, supportive, party towards President Trump’s policy agenda. We have had a $1.3T omnibus spending bill, and no funding for a border security wall . . . a critical centerpiece for President Trump. I do not believe that a House and Senate majority of Democrats would have ever unleashed a special prosecutor against Barack Obama . . . and there were plenty of reasons to do so. Heck, the Senate Republican majority didn’t even do so after winning the majority in 2014.
So, why will the Democrat (socialist) Party face a red tsunami in November?
As reported by Fox News:
“A group of radical protesters in Washington, D.C., shouted down Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and his wife in a restaurant Monday night, sending the couple to an early exit in a tense scene captured on video.
The group appeared to chastise Cruz over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who is facing multiple sexual assault allegations. Two one-minute video clips were posted to the Twitter page of a group called “Smash Racism DC.”
The group’s Facebook page states that it is “united” in the fight against the “Nazis, Ku Klux Klan.”
In the first video clip, a group of protesters approach Cruz and his wife at a restaurant table, repeatedly shouting, “We believe survivors!”
“Hi, I’d love to talk to you about Brett Kavanaugh tonight. I’m a constituent, love to know what your vote is gonna be tonight. I know that you’re very close friends with Mr. Kavanaugh,” says a woman off camera. “Do you believe survivors?”
“Senator, I have a right to know what your position is on Brett Kavanaugh,” she continues.
“God bless you, ma’am,” Cruz says amid the shouts.
“Bless you as well, I really appreciate you,” the woman responds. “I’m a survivor of sexual assault. I believe all survivors. There are now three people who have come forward and who have said that Brett Kavanaugh has attacked them. I know that you’re close friends with him. Could you talk to him about that? Could you talk to him about his position?”
Cruz then appears to get up and head for the exit with his wife.
“How are you gonna vote, sir?” the woman asks.
In the second video, the protesters continue shouting, “We believe survivors!” as Cruz is seen struggling to get through the crowd.
“Beto’s way hotter than you, dude!” says one protester off camera, in reference to Democratic congressman Beto O’Rourke, Cruz’s challenger for his U.S. Senate seat.
“Excuse me, let my wife through,” Cruz says to the hostile crowd.
As Cruz nears the exit, a woman is heard shouting, “Are you going to confirm your best friend Kavanaugh?”
Another protester shouts: “Sexist, racist, anti-gay!”
When Cruz leaves the restaurant, the protesters cheer. A restaurant worker appears, telling the group to leave.”
p1. No—you can’t eat in peace—your politics are an attack on all of us
You’re [sic] votes are a death wish. Your votes are hate crimes.
Tonight Senator Ted Cruz arrived at Fiola, an upscale restaurant mere steps from the White House, to enjoy a hearty Italian dinner. https://t.co/7vRsLmXd0Z

First of all, I find it interesting that this group is against Nazis, yet the left is greatly supported by a Nazi sympathizer named George Soros. Also, in case these leftists did not know, the KKK was founded by the Democrat [Socialist] party, but these are topics for another time.
Okay, one can appreciate Senator Cruz’s attempt to deescalate the situation by being accommodating, and moving on. My approach would have been a tad different. First of all, I would have asked these chuckleheads if they believe Karen Monahan? See, when faced with enraged, ignorant, and illogical progressive socialists, you turn their argument on them. These useful idiots obviously would have not known who Karen Monahan is, and therefore, I would have lectured them, and asked why they did not believe her . . . or Kathleen Willey, Paula Jones, Juanita Broaddrick, and Gennifer Flowers? I would have also made mention of one Monica Lewinsky.
Then, I would have pivoted, and asked if they were judge, jury, and executioner? I thought in America our system of justice was that one was innocent until proven guilty. I would have remained calm, and continued with my dinner plans while instructing them on the fact that not a single corroborating witness has come forward, even those named by the accusers have denied any knowledge, not to mention the inconsistencies. I would have forced them to answer questions regarding Senator Diane Feinstein’s handling of the letter she was presented.
It’s these type of brown shirt tactics called for by Mad Max Waters in her fatwa that will be the demise of the left in November. Their undoing will be by their own hand, kinda like the punishments brought upon Ramses II by God, through Moses, until he left the Israelite people go.
Yes, there is a time for spirited engagement, but it should be informed engagement, and not just the illiterate rantings such as what we have come to expect from these fascists — real ones — of the left. Their tactics of coercion, intimidation, threats, mandates, fear mongering, and violence will not settle well with the American people. The best and fastest way to inflict a death-blow to the left will be at the ballot box in November.
What type of childish mind yells out that someone is hotter than another? Yes, you already answered the question, the progressive socialist mind that is shallow, and functions on the plane of emotion, not reason.
If I am out with my wife, do not interrupt us during an evening to ourselves with this nonsense. I will be the reasonable brute, but Angela, with all of her incredible intellectual achievements and degrees . . . well, she is Jamaican, and they don’t play.
Just let Angela and I eat, and everyone will be just fine. But y’all leftist, progressive socialists, got it coming in November because you are stuck on stupid.
