Not letting any lefties off the hook, but here's some perspective from 2015 after the gay marriage ruling.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3304968/posts
Two of the five votes concerning same sex marriage are totally illegitimate. They were cast by Elenor Kagan and Sonia Sotomayer acting as though they are legal members of the United States Supreme Court. Any challenge to this ruling should include a challenge to their legitimacy as they were appointed by a Usurper, not a legal President.

You are getting the point.

The current crop of Dems in congress might as well be pseudo-anonymous wingnuts posting shit.

Kavanaugh Blowback
Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins — a key swing-vote whose dramatic floor speech on Friday assured Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court — revealed on Sunday that she initially thought Kavanaugh “perhaps needed to withdraw” after she heard Christine Blasey Ford’s “very compelling and painful” testimony.

But then, Collins said, “When [Kavanaugh] came back with a forceful denial, the anger and anguish he showed, and then the lack of corroboration, led me back to the fundamental issues to our legal system.
...
Speaking to CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday, Collins emphasized, “I found Ford to be heartwrenching and compelling.” But, she continued, “I don’t believe Kavanaugh was her assailant.”

Collins spent more than an hour and a half in a secure room of the Capitol complex last week reviewing the FBI’s supplemental background check on Kavanaugh, which she called a “very thorough” investigation.

In a point-by-point address on the Senate floor Friday afternoon, Collins spent nearly an hour reviewing Kavanaugh’s judicial record, which she said showed he would be a fair jurist who respected precedent, including Roe v. Wade, which established a federal constitutional right to an abortion in early trimesters.

She then turned to the accusations against Kavanaugh, and said some of the outlandish claims against him — including uncorroborated claims by Julie Swetnick that he had engaged in systemic gang rapes — were a “stark reminder of why the presumption of innocence is so ingrained in our American consciousness.
History will remember her for that, IMHO.
It is a fairly sure bet, feminists are not likely to forget it any time soon...
...
Collins has faced harsh blowback already for her vote. Within hours of her Friday speech, one crowdfunding website, Crowdpac, said that it had crashed from the influx of donations intended to help Collins’ eventual challenger. By Saturday afternoon, more than $3.2 million had been raised for “her opponent’s campaign, once that opponent has been identified.”
I hope she wins anyway...

Here's one guy's reaction.

Kavanaugh Foes Fill Senate Gallery With Sounds of the Insane
J. Christian Adams in PJ Media
...

Perhaps you were watching on television and heard the disruptions, though you certainly didn’t see them. The attenuated audio probably didn’t catch the frightening, incoherent shrieking – including the lingering screaming and howling as they were being dragged down the hallways outside the gallery.

...

I have visited hospitals for the seriously mentally ill, and the shrieks from this woman were as odd and unearthly as anything I ever heard inside a mental hospital. They echoed off the halls and ceilings outside the gallery in decreasing but astonishing amplitude.

Then the roll was called, and it sounded like the gates of hell opened up.

Nearly a dozen women erupted in unison, shouting, howling, screaming, in an unrecognizable venomous wail. They wouldn’t stop. There was fury, rage, hate, poison in the noise.

It wasn't prose. It wasn't song. It was a swarming, shrill, swirling noise.

I leaned over to someone and whispered, “Pay attention, that’s what the Left sounds like.”

Well, possession is nine tenths of the law, so maybe they were shocked that they'd lost?

The full comment is weirder:
Perhaps there is an element of demonic possession. Years of supporting abortion on demand will open your soul to demonic influence and possibly possession. So I wouldn't be surprised that there were some demonic voices getting through.

Holy Water helps.
There are other ones in the same style, can't all be in jest, right? :notsure:

But there's an idea there: sprinkle hysterical protesters with holy water and watch which ones vanish in a puff of smoke. :mrgreen:

I'll give you the names of those you must kill,
All must die with their children!
Carry their heads to the palace of old,
Hang them high, let the blood flow!

Now, in this ugly world
break all the chains around us,
Now, the crusade has begun
give us a land fit for heroes,
Now -

Stand up and fight, for you know we are right,
We must strike at the lies,
That have spread like disease through our minds.
Soon we'll have power, every soldier will rest,
And we'll spread out our kindness,
To all who our love now deserve!

Some of you are going to die!
Martyrs, of course, to the freedom that I shall provide!

As an aside, I'm not sure you can "graduate #1 in boot camp." Unless they do things different these days. In my day you either made it through boot camp or you didn't. It was pass or fail, no ranks. Also you could "complete" boot camp, but not "graduate" from it, although I understand what she was trying to say.

Not tone deaf if she is sincere. This is exactly the sort of person the left mocks and vilifies for expressing an absolutely sincere and understandable aversion to their despicable antics. Nothing wrong with the sentiment or the post. I congratulate her for actually making an effort.

re. boot camp. A friends son was at the "top of his class" in boot camp.
For honor graduates of basic training, the Air Force, Coast Guard, and Navy present a Basic Training Honor Graduate Ribbon. The Navy and Marine Corps often meritoriously advance the top graduates of each division one pay-grade (up to a maximum of E-3).
