I think I qualify (by an objective standard, equally applied) for victim status!

If only an objective, equally applied standard could exist in the leftist mental map of the universe, and I were willing to bow to progressive Democrat tyranny, I could have a place in the line demanding reparations! And my injury is recent, and personal!

I left the progressive Democrat leftcoastian groupthink culture I was born and raised in 40 years ago, to register Republican and vote for Ronald Reagan, after I learned that essential parts of the "intellectual" foundation of the progressive Democrat belief system, for example, the "expectation" that everyone who was not an uneducated beer-swilling hick from the sticks, or otherwise "deplorable", was a progressive Democrat, were simply false.

As it happens, l had started, about 60 years ago, reading SF, mostly "hard SF" (but including a smattering of Bradbury and such), and pretty much no fiction but SF, much of it from the "golden age" (happily, as it turned out, for my ability to think independently despite having been born and raised in Leftcoastian groupthink culture). Also it happened that I was interested in technology, from low to high, and spent time learning how to work with that.

Imagine, if you will, how many times during the last 40 years I have been snootily "educated", by one of the "educated" who had discovered that I can't (in a progressive Democrat's eye) be one of the "educated" due to having an opinion which fails to conform to "educated" opinion.

Imagine, if you will, how many opportunities, in Silicon Valley, where I have lived and worked for 40 years, to apply my technical talents to building a better technical infrastructure, were never offered, because I was not properly "educated and therefore "not a good fit with the corporate culture" of "a very left-leaning place".

Apparently, I've reached the age, and level of, eh, education (in that school which groupthinking left-leaning chic elite "culture" prefers not to acknowledge), where it's fairly safe to assume that _every_ accusation coming at me from the left is projection, and every look down a scornful, left-leaning nose, directed at my lack of "education", and "success", in fact a recognition, in the attempt to deny, of an indictment of the ideology of the downward nose-looker which exists in the bare facts of my experience.

I estimate that "change" has not yet altered the world around me enough to fully resemble the Twilight Zone, but it might be enough to put me within the Outer Limits.

Boxer is a metaphor. Read the book. It's not long.

 When I decided, on election day, 2016, to alter, not my vote, but the commitment implied by it, from the strongest possible vote against a Hillary Presidency to an affirmative vote for a Trump Presidency, and a choice to stand with "the deplorables" rather than the deplorers, I estimated that my background (born, in Leftcoastia, and raised to be progressive Democrat, deploring "those people", but having walked away, in 1980) gave me an unusual (for a non-progressive Democrat) insight, from long familiarity with the ideological assumptions and daily practice of progressive Democratism, and good reason for confidence that the progressives meant, really meant, that it was their way or the highway- they would brook no moderation, and no persons willing to see both sides. So, I could, while knowing I had very good reason for confidence, understand that others wouldn't have such good reason to see (that the progressives were the pigs, and reaching the point of feeling entitled to decide, during a pig only meeting in the farmhouse, to send Boxer to the glue factory).

It's less understandable now, I think.

The lying left (now filling the entirety of the Democrat suit they wear) accuse themselves

The central idea of the Trump Presidency can be described simply: push back. Or, as Trump literally said: "I am a counter-puncher." I think that claim, now proven, during 4 years of his presidency, accurate, goes much deeper than critics imagine. Consider it in the light of what constitutes legitimate self defense, and legitimate defense against aggression under the laws of war. It's a matter of record that the New Left declared, about 50 years ago, their intent to achieve "the revolution" (another word for insurrection), primarily by means of a "long march through the institutions" instead of the bomb-throwing, fighting in the streets campaign they advocated, and some attempted, during the '60s, and even later. That doesn't mean they gave up organizing "protest", but that such "protest" was not intended to itself directly achieve "revolution", but to aid the "long march" in gaining positions of power within the institutions from which they could achieve "the revolution" (comparatively) "peacefully" (a "soft coup").

Everything the House managers are accusing Trump of, without compelling evidence, has been the central aim of leftism in the US, to be achieved, in their words, "by any means necessary", during the last 50 years. Evidently Trump is a threat to the plans of that Democrat-skin suited leftism, now installed within the institutions, but that's not in itself a threat to the Constitution, because neither the physical structures of the institutions, or the persons who inhabit them, are the Constitutional government unless they are actually submitting to the Constitution, and are not, themselves, engaged in various forms of insurrection.

Of course leftism lied about all this, but, in their lying, and especially their emotionally manipulating false accusation campaigns (Alinsky rule 13), they also reveal the truth.

When skin suit Democrats accuse Trump's counter-punches of being "a threat to Democracy", they accuse the punches leftism has thrown, during 50 years I can personally recall, the more, and raise the legitimate question of whether it is in fact they who are engaged in actual insurrection.

People of Western Civilization, especially in the US! Don't sell your birthright of the principles of liberty under law for a pile of cheap, shiny, fake, "values"!

Progressives, your leadership is "the pigs" (read Animal Farm).

Progressives, your ideology is, in practice, what it claims to hate.

Progressives, don't say "it can't happen here" (where those who talk progressivism dominate), it is happening here!

When progressivism in the New Left, used those slogans 50 years ago to accuse "the establishment", they were lies, told to advance a leftist political agenda. Now that agenda has advanced, and is attempting to seize power, and the prophecies are coming true, because too many believed a lie.

Progressivism is a self-fulfilling prophecy of doom (just read everything they say through an Orwellian to English translator). Don't believe the lies, because, why should you let your country die, and likely you and yours with it? Instead, believe God in Jesus Christ, Lord, and live!

Malicious prosecution war on "the enemy" is niceness

Free speech is enslavement

Biden: Trump impeachment trial 'has to happen'

Democrat kids, I understand that you have feelings for the old yeller Democrat Donkey, and it did lead us, 80 years ago, in our part of the fight to save the world from (some) totalitarianism, but it's infected with lefties, and the disease, like rabies, is progressive. You should have, metaphorically speaking, locked it up in the corn crib a while back, and now, you need to go get Dad's rifle.
The way we can tell is you're all starting to speak Orwellian, frequently, to the point where it is fairly trivial for those of us who are not attempting to reason from leftist assumptions to observe that your every accusation reads like projection.
