Severed Heads: Liberals Lose Theirs All Around

by Charlotte Allen

Time for a quiz:

Whose severed head has hit the ground hardest?

1. Donald Trump's?

2. Hillary Clinton's?

3. Kathy Griffin's?

4. The "climate change" left's?

I could go on and on: Evergreen State, the "hippie" college of the already way-too-hip state of Washington's public (i.e. taxpayer-funded) university system, has shut down--yes, shut down--because campus police officers couldn't guarantee personal safety after a phoned-in threat probably linked to a liberal, yes, liberal professor's refusal with a demand by radicals that white people absent themselves from campus for a day. And then there's the feminist furor over a man who's dared to test the legality of a women-only screening of the movie Wonder Woman in Brooklyn.

In short, liberals have lost their heads, which are rolling haplessly whichever way you look.

The chef de Trump imbroglio is sadly typical. CNN comedienne Griffin--along with, apparently, a substantial number of CNN mucky-mucks who monitor and approve this sort of thing--thought it would be hilarious to have herself photographed holding a fake bloodied head of President Trump--ha ha! Griffin, promptly fired from CNN, issued an apology--although most recently she's issued a statement that she's hired a lawyer (Lisa Bloom, daughter of perennial feminist scold/attorney Gloria Allred) to help her "respond to the bullying from the Trump family she has endured." "That "bullying" seems to consist of irritated tweets by the president and First Lady Melania Trump, after their 11-year-old son, Barron, who didn't know who Griffin was, got upset at the image of his dad's bloody disembodied head.

And then there's Hillary Clinton, who, instead of retiring gracefully like all other failed presidential candidates up to her, is making the rounds of her Blame Tour, in which everyone and his dog (Russians, James Comey, even the Democratic National Committee that threw itself behind her--is to blame for Trump's Electoral College sweep in November. Everyone except Hillary herself that is. Even the reliably pro-Hillary CNN couldn't resist having some fun with her slo-mo seppuku (not to mention her hashing of the chances of the liberals' new pet-Clinton, daughter Chelsea, ever to see the inside of the Oval Office again. CNN host John King quipped, “You don’t understand: The Russians cloaked Wisconsin...So she couldn’t find it on a map to get there and campaign there."

And I can't get over the over-the-top liberal hysteria over Trump's withdrawal from the Paris Climate Treaty that was one of President Obama's pet "achievements." The phrases "traitorous act of war," "abdicating world leadership," and "history will condemn you" are being tossed about like so much rice at a wedding.

Something has gone seriously wrong with the folks, who, for all their political differences with conservatives, gave us the Bill of Rights 200 years ago and led us successfully through World War II 70 years ago.

I call it decapitation.
