Mark Caserta: Are liberals pursuing Ahab’s great white whale?

The enormous amount of venomous enmity toward Donald J. Trump, by liberals, is unlike anything we’ve seen in modern-day politics. Their passion to destroy a U.S. president, frankly, makes taking them seriously difficult.

In fact, the magnitude of liberal fury toward President Trump reminds me of the obsessive behavior of Captain Ahab in his pursuit aboard the Pequod to destroy the great white whale known as Moby Dick.

A bizarre comparison, you say? Perhaps, but stay with me.

In Herman Melville’s epic novel, Ahab was a whaling captain enslaved by a maniacal passion for revenge against a white whale that had destroyed one of his legs. This theme aligns perfectly with the current progressive addiction to destroying Donald Trump in that Ahab sought not only to avenge his loss against a mere whale, but over a ruling authority which Ahab refuses to accept, the nature of which is left to the reader.

Nonetheless, the captain’s compulsion was clearly not “normal,” as illuminated in one of Ahab’s final lines in the story that reveals his warped determination to destroy his foe, the great white beast.

“To the last I grapple with thee; from hell’s heart, I stab at thee; for hate’s sake, I spit my last breath at thee.”

No, that wasn’t Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) speaking of Trump, but it isn’t far off the scandalous remarks she and other liberals have made about our president.

Let me be clear. Liberals have absolutely nothing to leverage against our president than their disdain for the fact Hillary lost the election in an electoral landslide.

They’ve even tried blaming Moscow.

But to date, there’s still no evidence Donald Trump ever colluded with Vladimir Putin to defeat Hillary Clinton. Why would Putin want Trump as president when he profited so well under a liberal administration? And the liberal hypocrisy by not addressing legitimate Russian collusion by the Obama administration is very telling.

Remember when President Obama got caught in a private conversation on a hot microphone in Seoul, Korea, telling outgoing Russian president Dmitry Medvedev that Vladimir Putin should give him more “space” and that “after my election I have more flexibility”?

Russian collusion supported by fact.

While ignored by the major liberal media, from 2009 to 2013, Russia began acquiring shares of Uranium One, a Canadian uranium company with holdings in the United States. Under the Obama administration, Russia gained control of nearly 20 percent of the uranium production capacity in the U.S.

Following the transaction, donations totaling $2.35 million dubiously made their way to the Clinton Foundation. Bill Clinton also received a “gratuitous” fee of $500,000 for a speech he made to the Kremlin.

Russian collusion supported by fact.

Is the progressive movement so paramount to the left they’re willing to follow this conservative “white whale” into treacherous waters, wildly seeking to annihilate this threat to their liberal passions?

Liberals would be wise to heed the moral of the story of Captain Ahab and the crew of the Pequod. The passion of their pursuit could eventually precipitate their demise.
