Sorry for the hyperbolic sounding title, but I couldn't contrive a better one that wasn't 20 miles long.
The question, however, remains valid, no matter how seemingly unlikely.
If not the end of progressivism, might they be on the brink of sustaining a hit that stands to set them back perhaps eighty to one hundred years? I ask because of what I am witnessing. Look at the absurdity of the media behavior, with its frothing-at-the-mouth antics, crying "wolf" and "the sky is falling" with an absurd and transparent stridence I can recall at no other time in my life. They are whipping up the lefties, who are lapping up the spooge by the bucket-loads, getting all worked up and making warlike noises that seem unprecedented in our history. The left appears to be prepping for literal, physical warfare.
Are these frenetics not a sign of a wounded animal finding itself in a corner, casting wildly about for any way out, feeling there is nothing to lose by going pedal to the metal no matter how absurdly? Have we not seen this in other nations in the past, Germany coming to mind ca. early 1945? Is this not precisely what we would expect to see in the case where the deeper power felt such clear and present threats to all for which it has do dutifully labored for a century, and perhaps far longer? What would YOU do, were you in such a position?
It is all beginning to take on the tone of existential desperation.
