If you ever watch a crime show like Criminal Minds or NCIS it soon becomes obvious that many episodes involve a similar plot. The investigators start to zero in on a suspect. Family members are questioned. They are immediately outraged that anyone would suspect their loved one. They loudly protest and tell the investigators they have the wrong person. My son(father, husband, brother, mother, sister, daughter etc.,) could never do something like that. Then, there is the moment when the investigators uncover the critical piece of evidence. This evidence is impossible to dismiss and even harder to ignore. This is when the family members are confronted with the awful reality. Not only is their loved one guilty, they have been lied to over and over again. It is always a brutal moment. In many cases the family member starts to go back over things that have happened in the past and looks at them in a whole new light. In some cases, they are filled with guilt because deep down they knew something was terribly wrong all along and they just could not bring themselves to believe it.
This is exactly what is about to happen to a lot of people who call themselves Democrats. They could not bring themselves to believe the reality about the crimes, yes crimes, committed by people like Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Loretta Lynch, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, John Brennan, James Clapper and a class of thousands. It is bad enough when one person lets you down. But in this case the entire leadership of the Democratic Party has a lot of hopelessly corrupt people. Unbelievably corrupt people. What makes this worse is that the fawning MSM led by people like Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon continued to report the ridiculous and ignore the obvious. Seldom in world history have so many people been betrayed by so many others who did so much damage with so little regard for anyone but themselves.
I believe we are on the verge of having that critical evidence put on full display and as Trey Gowdy said it is capable of being persuasive. There are numerous signs of this. Interviews of top Democrats are being released in unredacted form. Each one shows a consistent pattern of guilt. President Trump is promising to de-classify even more documents. He has publicly said he is waiting to release them for the time when they will have the most impact. We are soon to be inundated with hard evidence of criminal activity that will be impossible to dismiss and even more impossible to ignore. We already know how the guilty will respond. They will continue to lie while running for cover. The great unknown is how the Democratic base will respond when they are confronted with the reality that they have been lied to over and over again. Once someone has betrayed you with that level of duplicity it is a life changing event. In some cases, they may even be forgiven, but this is never forgotten, and no one will ever trust them again.
I know many liberals and Democrats who are men and women of honesty and character. They are not like this at all. They, like those family members, are victims only of believing in people who let them down. While some will continue to believe, this reminds me of the words of Abraham Lincoln:
“You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.”
This is so bad; it is easy to understand why a lot of people have difficulty accepting the truth. But ultimately facts are stubborn things and so far, the facts are all pointing in the same direction. At some point, that will become too obvious to ignore. If that happens, don’t be surprised if the loudest outrage comes from those who have been betrayed.
