Democrat Deer in the Headlights

What can be going through a deer’s mind just before the deer goes through the windshield? The dazzle? Something so bright with promise that it overwhelms the flight impulse which always comes before the fight reaction?

The tendency of deer to freeze when caught in the sudden glare of an oncoming disaster is so well recognized that it has evolved into the familiar catchphrase; a phase used for any life situation in which the threat is so overwhelming and sudden that no survival reaction is possible. Instead, the animal remains rooted in place — nailed to its perch like a deer in the healights, as it were.

We now see this dreaded situation acted out daily along the Information Highway where an increasingly large number of our fellow citizens from the world delusional have assumed this dazed position on the highway of history. They seem surprisingly content to stand spot-welded to the tarmac as the glare of ruin and the promise of destruction rolls towards them, air horn suspiciously silent.

Some people think the deer are not innocent when they step into the headlights. Some people think the deer seek it out. I’m starting to agree with this cold estimate.

Unable to wake themselves from the dazzle of dementia, from the forlorn hope of OrangeMan gone soon, our current cohort of glare frozen furbutts are actually supporting the impeachment circus unfolding in media sideshows everywhere; supporting a process whose daily television “program” is a kabuki of cowardice; supporting the herd leaders of Congressional Bambis, if you will. This part of the herd, as a reward for their obsessive compulsion towards embracing trumphate and the corruption of the Constitution, is actually praised by the Timesian and Postoid scribblers snorting amongst them in the sty on the Hill. Throughout the history of the Republic, we’ve seen many popular delusions of the mob rise and capture the nation, but we’ve never seen the towering tsunami of madness rise this high before.

It is an unusual government that swears to preserve and protect the Constitution, and then slaps that document, perforated, on a roll and installs it in the stalls of Congressional toilets.

It is an unusual government that promotes and passes policies of failure and defeat while prating of “patriotism” to troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria, all of whom it long ago sold down the river. Yet failure and defeat seem to be what the majority in the current congress and the Nomination Clowncar desperately want. All while the deer only want to step out on the asphalt and watch this triumph of hubris and the slide towards the pit. Yes, no matter what happens to them they love the dopamine hit of trumphate so much they just going to keep on sticking the needle under their tongue on between their toes and, as all pro junkies know, “Once the needle goes in, it never comes out.”

Perhaps the answer to what goes through the deer’s mind as it stands in the beams is as simple as “a death wish.”

After all, the membership of a party that has spent many decades worshipping death — before birth and when obvious usefulness is finished — must all be more than “half in love with easeful death.” To simply wish for death all around seems to be a simple next step. The current congress and clowncar must, in turn, love the death wish of its supporters. It figures that if some of the dead can help you get elected, more dead makes your job of governing that much easier.

Satan, the original progressive, informed Milton of this principle when he said,
Here we may reign secure, and in my choyce
To reign is worth ambition though in Hell:
Better to reign in Hell, then serve in Heav’n

Of course, much of the current congress’s institutionalized Democrat death wish, and the culture of cowardice that both precedes and envelops it, is carefully camouflaged, hidden from the sight of the less-than-persuaded centrists, independents, and other Americans who might not be ready to follow the Democrats across the Styx and down into the hell of collectivism “done right this time, trust us.”

This love of death-in-life in political philosophies must always be hidden. If it were not the American collectivist party would wither to its small and wizened core. After all one must, even while taking the country down the path to defeat and ruin, pretend that one has only the very best core American values at heart. It keeps the marks and the rubes from wising up, waking up, or blinking in the glare of the headlights.

In the annals of bunkum, it is axiomatic that once you get the rubes in the tent and take their money, you’ve gotta get the plucked out of the tent in order to pack more marks in. This problem was first solved by the great American master of bunkum and bosh, P. T. Barnum at Barnum’s American Museum

At one point, Barnum noticed that people were lingering too long at his exhibits. He posted signs indicating “This Way to the Egress”. Not knowing that “Egress” was another word for “Exit”, people followed the signs to what they assumed was a fascinating exhibit…and ended up outside.

We’re seeing that clever bit of misdirection applied nationwide today where an impeachment inquiry seems to think it can become an impeachment vote, voila!, hence a trial in the Senate with a guilty verdict, and a heave-ho removal from office, with the arrest and execution of Trump shortly thereafter. All without anybody noticing and without a wave of targetted assassinations by scoped-rifle of some three thousand Democrat heads followed by “Hello, President Pence, and your national declaration of martial law.”

Isn’t it pretty to think so?

“This Way to the Egress” America. We hope you don’t notice that the door opens into the middle of the Interstate at midnight with a convoy of semis overloaded with history bearing down on you.

The headlights will keep coming down the road from the very near future and the deer will insist upon straying into them. The only question is whether or not you want to be part of the passive herd or stockpile venison for the long road back to the Republic.

    Now THAT was one terrific “piece,” as the nibs say. Just when I thought, “No way he can top that last line” (‘They seem surprisingly content to stand spot-welded to the tarmac as the glare of ruin and the promise of destruction rolls towards them, air horn suspiciously silent”) up comes another’n (“We’ve never seen the towering tsunami of madness rise this high before.”) better’n (or equal to) the other’n (“the current congress’s institutionalized Democrat death wish, and the culture of cowardice”).

    I had to take a piece of equipment to the UPS store in the ville and after an hour of forced dementia on the highways it was with a sigh of relief when I finally turned onto Helmsburg road back to home and my BP dropped 50 points instantly. So I’m toolin along about 30mph observing the countryside and the snow everywhere and I came upon a shorn corn field with 7 deers nibblin the remains, oblivious to me. I stopped right on the road and rolled the window down and watched them. A couple looked at me then went about their bidnit, then I moved on.

    I have seen thousands of deers here in the great white north and never have I seen a deer stand on a roadway of any sort. I’m talking 2 lane blacktop, gravel, and dirt. Never have seen a deer on one. What I have seen is deers hauling ass across the surface that doesn’t feel like anything else. Yes, flat out hauling long ass. Derrs don’t like roads and are rarely, if ever, seen on them. Deers eat, all day long, and there is nothing to eat on any road, so they don’t frequent them. Ever. Drivers hit deers all the time but why would a driver intentionally hit a deer supposedly standing on a road, damaging their vehicle? They don’t. Cause deers aren’t on roads, remember? Anytime a driver hits a deer it is because the deer ran at full speed across the road and the driver was unable to avoid it. They are very fast. I haven’t hit one yet but it may happen, though I rarely drive at night, and when I drive during the day I practice advanced situational awareness.

    So I’m thinking the deer in the headlights things is mostly fake. But deers in the flashlight or spotlight are real, cause I have seen that. I’ve seen raccoons and rabbits freeze in the spotlight too. But never a ‘possum. ‘Possum just don’t care. But the deers and ‘coons is curious and fearful, so they stop, look, and listen. But never on the roadway.

    The criminals at all levels are now running the country and there is little anyone can do about it. Trump? Nice try, but he’s mostly meaningless. Sort of like using a shotglass to bail the 1000’ oceanliner with the ocean already coming over the deck.

    $22tril. Are you kidding me? It will never be paid back, and there is a severe penalty for that. Besides, it’s not been $22tril for 2 decades. It’s way over $2 THOUSAND tril. As with everything else, the gov’t lies about the debt too. The fact is, the gov’t accounting, like everything else gov’t, is so convoluted it is not possible to know how much the debt it, and frankly, at this point, it just doesn’t matter. The politicians and bureaucrats know this too and are looting everything for all it’s worth. They think that they’ll get out right before the cage door slams shut. But remember, they are dumbed down gov’t employees and underestimate the seething cauldron of reprisal that awaits them.

    The only way out is through and that means the slate must be mopped with a sea of blood and misery spanning many years, decades even. Yes, sad as it is, if you’re an old person like me your “golden” years will be anything but and worry will haunt you the rest of your days. I have no grand solution, so don’t ask, but I do believe if you carry the american spirit in your heart you already know what I am speaking of and what to do. Peace – Onward.

    I just don’t get. Why are people blinded by their hatred of President Trump? They are sheep following the disingenuous, lie by omission media. The deception is blatantly obvious but they refuse to wake up.

    “After all one must, even while taking the country down the path to defeat and ruin, pretend that one has only the very best core American values at heart.”

    The left has been working all our lives to re-define those values on their terms. Now the values of “tolerance”, “fairness”, or “equal opportunity” have been turned into the Frankenstein monsters of equalitarianism, multi-culturism, feminism, homosexual privilege, tranny-privilege, and the alllllll important anti-white male privilege. “Freedom” is now the freedom from being exposed to badthink ideas.

    I spent my last ten working years pushing broom in an elementary school. Even from the janitor’s perspective the poz was overwhelming. The kids are fed a none too subtle diet of pro-minority, anti white, pro female, anti male, and yes, all manner of anti-American progressive diarrhea from the moment they set foot in pre-kindergarten. The teachers are almost without exception radical progressives. It’s for this reason I can’t be too hard on the milli’s. Those poor kids grew up in an indoctrination mill. They believe that they were taught Truth. They were not taught that Truth hurts.

    Great read. I would have to conclude that the American Republic has ended with this fake inquisition by the democrats. Justice and fair trials are now only an item from history. I envision some 500 or more stretched necks in the near future.

    Keep your defensive tools close at hand people. Don’t forget to have a large stockpile of rope in your supplies.

    Going to go OT, here:
    Gerard, a note of appreciation for the poem on your sidebar. “The Stars Go Over The Lonely Ocean” has become stuck in my head like an earworm. I read it every time I click on AD, and it still moves me. Reading this is experiencing a prophetic lucid dream. Wisdom wrapped in nonsense. It could be the opening of an epic.


  • ghostsniper November 15, 2019, 4:40 AM

    Thanks for the tip John, I hadn’t noticed that poem.
    Maybe I’m that boar.
    I can’t see the relevancy of happenings 10,000 miles away when explosions are going on much closer. Are they blind? Don’t care? Or worse? shrug
    I’m here in the woods with the roots and the slugs and that’s the best I can hope for, now.

  • tkdkerry November 15, 2019, 7:14 AM

    I share Gerald’s puzzlement. My wife and I on occasion wonder aloud why it is that otherwise very intelligent family and friends embrace a seething hatred for Trump, refusing to even briefly consider they might be wrong. We have no answer for it.

  • John Venlet November 15, 2019, 7:59 AM

    I think this deer in the headlights phenomenon is a textbook example of mass hysteria, or more precisely what is coming to be known as “collective obsessional behavior,” and it is in full-blown epidemic mode. Only free men and free minds are immune.

  • John Venlet November 15, 2019, 9:39 AM

    I do not think there is anything to be puzzled about regarding this deer in the headlights observation. I think what is afflicting these individuals is collective obsessional behavior, colloquially known as mass hysteria. Consider the recent short burst of this collective obsessional behavior in the vaping scare, which, come to find out was a vitamin E acetate problem in basically counterfeit vaping cartridges.

    Free men with free minds are immune to the collective obsessional behavior phenomenon.

  • ghostsniper November 15, 2019, 9:54 AM

    “…refusing to even briefly consider they might be wrong.”

    It’s easier to teach someone that YOU are right rather than teaching them that THEY are wrong.
    Nobody wants to be wrong, so pointing out that they are will alienate them.

    However, when showing some one a rightful thing there is no threat to them and they will not be defensive. They may even believe what you are saying is true, eventually. Listen to your words from the other side of the table, open your mind, and learn from your mistakes.

    A whole lotta “you’s” in that thing isn’t there?
    That’s intentional.
    You can change you, and you do so all the time.
    But you can’t change someone else.
    Only they can change themselves.
    You can, however, be a catalyst for change in them, if you gauge your performance properly and keep correcting it, striving for perfection.

    And if all else fails….a 26″ expandable baton can be your best friend.
    I know, I know. I’m a lzy fuk too sometimes. Just grab the baton and get it over with.
