The howling mob that is the American Left senses that they’ve overreached, and that the great quiet majority is starting to get pissed. Rather than back off, though, they’re doing what has always worked for them until now: they’re attacking. They know no other tactic.
Unfortunately for them, their tantrums only worked in the past because the great quiet majority was willing to let it slide. The left doesn’t understand that. They think they have inherent power, rather than grudgingly-granted leeway. Someday soon they’re going to push things past the point of no return.
The backlash is about to begin.
