We Need to Talk About Keith Olbermann’s Latest Dive Off the Deep End

As founts of content go, Keith Olbermann keeps providing for the right-wing commentariat. His latest dive off the deep end included allegedly wishing for the assassination of Donald Trump.

Reacting to Trump saying he has been treated worse than Abraham Lincoln, Olbermann responded, “There’s always hope.”

He later backtracked, claiming he meant that he hopes Trump dies in prison because I guess Olbermann thinks that’s a more sane and normal response to one’s political opposition.

I’m not sure exactly what he thought Trump should be convicted of nine years ago in 2015 given there were no indictments of the now-former president at the time nor any evidence of wrongdoing. That’s too deep of a thought to waste on Olbermann’s rantings, though. I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, i.e. that did want Trump to be “convicted” and to “die in prison” back in 2015. 

The former Sportscenter host turned political commentator is a true believer. He’s not dancing for eyeballs. He is as crazy as he appears. In a vacuum, who cares, right? Olbermann isn’t that important. We don’t live in a vacuum, though, and his pathology has become pervasive. 

Americans live in a country full of people who truly believe their political opponents should be killed for disagreeing with them. Worse, they’ve convinced themselves that such a position is righteous. After all, when you aren’t just instituting policy but are “protecting democracy” from “fascists,” pretty much anything is on the table. In their minds, there won’t be a country left if they don’t do whatever it takes to retain power.

Would Olbermann and the millions of other deranged leftists who think like him throw everyone in the image headlining this article in gulags if they had the chance? You can bet your house they would. That’s what makes them so insidious as a political force. They have no boundaries because, in their minds, they are saving the country. 

That’s a dangerous place to be, and it’s one every politically active American needs to be wary of. If Trump wins in November, the country will not turn into a fascist state. If Biden wins, the country will not cease to exist. No matter the outcome, we will all still be here talking about it. Politics is important, but it’s not that important, and the moment a person loses touch with that reality, really bad things can happen. 

The problem for Olbermann and many on the left is that they have nothing else in their life providing them with a sense of purpose. They don’t believe in God. They don’t have families to go home to. That leaves them deriving their purpose from an ever-escalating delusion of “defending democracy.” What does Olbermann have other than shouting like a lunatic on social media about killing his political opponents? 

His behavior is a warning we should all heed. There’s a difference between caring about politics and making it the very foundation of one’s worth and being. A person who does the latter is teetering on the edge, and it’s a long way down.
