Now I get it. I did not get it for a long time- for what feels like forever. Now I think I’ve got it. Now, perhaps I understand. For so long, I was puzzled by it. A cloud of uncertainty and doubt hovered before me. But the cloud was washed away by the lush sunlight of understanding—and repulsion. Why, I wondered, ENDLESSLY, do the Democrats eat their own? Why does my party WORRY so much?

If I were to meet, in my travels, perhaps on beautiful oceanic shores, . a Genie in a bottle who had the power to answer this most burning question, I would ask WHY. Why do we have so many nervous Nellies? Why?

As it turns out, there was no need for said Genie because now I grasp the problem. Now I see the enablers. Such a strange bird the media is! Yet it is they who enable. The biggest worriers in our party are involved in a dance with the media. It’d be like a heroin user trying to get clean — and then having an evil beast of a person appear in front of them with a needle and some of the poison they were trying to get away from.

The media tries and tries to scare, terrify, and wound. Those who respond the way the media wants then fall into the rabbit hole of fear. They ingest all the ominous segments that the media feeds them. It is not medicine they give, you understand, it is the virus itself.

So then it’s a snowball effect. It ‘s a snowball effect because the media controls and sets the narrative, playing to the ones who already have a propensity toward the fear that binds them.

As with any addiction, the cure is only one thing — total abstinence. These people should become Teetotalers and never watch another toxic political TV segment. Then and only then will they have the power to free themselves of the chains of fear that bind them. Donate to Palmer Report
