With their hopes of blocking Justice Brett Kavanaugh dashed, Democrats and mainstream media will begin their flood of anti-conservative storylines filling the news feeds in their predictable attempt to terrify conscientious Independents and drive their deflated base to the polls of election day.
It’s important to understand the distinction between leftist or progressive storylines and anti-conservative storylines. The former is what they do when they’re in power. In the homestretch of an election year with all the power with the Republicans, they’ll instead shift to anti-conservatism. In other words, they aren’t going to tell us what they would do if they were given the reins on Capitol Hill. Instead, they’ll try to scare people with visions of apocalypse coming if America chooses not to give them control.
It’s easier to see some examples of stories that popped up just this week:
In the 728-page document, the U.N. organization detailed how Earth’s weather, health and ecosystems would be in better shape if the world’s leaders could somehow limit future human-caused warming to just 0.9 degrees Fahrenheit (a half degree Celsius) from now, instead of the globally agreed-upon goal of 1.8 degrees F (1 degree C). Among other things:
Leftist Narrative: OMG! The world is going to literally die if we elect conservatives!

Do you believe in Science @SenToomey because your president is killing the planet more and more with each bill he signs to allow more pollution of water and air. U.N. report about global warming warns of "life-or-death situation" https://t.co/xaj0PteUh1 via @cbsscitech

Yes, the President’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accords was unpopular with leftists and many Independents, but it was absolutely the right thing to do. Now, mainstream media is going to remind as many people as they can that voting Republican means voting against science in an effort to kill all life on the planet.
As we continue to fight for the future of abortion rights, it is critical for us to take a moment to acknowledge that many in the United States currently live without the ability to get abortion care. Prior Supreme Court decisions like Roe v. Wade and Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt have reaffirmed every person’s right to access abortion services, however, many obstacles — from laws designed to shut down abortion clinics to bans on insurance coverage — stand in the way of exercising that right.
Leftist Narrative: Double whammy! When they can attack pro-lifers and conservatives opposed to universal healthcare in one story, it’s a progressive windfall.

Allowing women to get insurance coverage for reproductive healthcare, including abortion, would not only give women the ability to make the best decisions for their lives, but also help them have equal economic opportunities.https://t.co/mXDx0cw8ms

Lifting the bans on Medicaid coverage for abortion is critical to ensuring every person has the right to make their own decisions about their body, their family, and their life's path. #BeBoldEndHyde https://t.co/fxeZu1egff

Restricting Medicaid abortion coverage forces some women to carry unwanted pregnancies which in turn lead to poorer health outcomes for mothers and their children. https://t.co/0h1LUszreZ

They have already tried and failed to convince a majority of Independent voters that Roe v. Wade is in real trouble. It’s been promised by Republicans and threatened by Democrats for so long that few believe it can actually happen regardless of who sites on the Supreme Court. However, there’s a clear play for them to highlight abortion restrictions. That’s the real scare tactic they’re going to employ going forward.
There were loud and sustained calls for more gun control legislation after the mass shooting earlier this year at a high school in Parkland, Florida.
A lot of those efforts failed — but not in California.
Leftist Narrative: We can’t save the world from those crazy gun people because conservatives always get in the way, but California doesn’t have a conservative problem.
When the gun lobby says gun laws don’t work, just remember:
California has the strongest gun laws in the country — and one of the lowest gun death rates. https://t.co/EF0JydTpLY

Expect gun control to be a major topic in the last weeks of election season. The NRA and other gun rights groups have had public relations problems among Independents lately, so Democrats will attach them and every shooting death in America to conservatives.
Controlling the narrative is easy for Democrats. So far they haven’t been able to use it to their advantage, but that can change in these final weeks as they go after conservative ideologies instead of promoting progressive ones. Be mindful.
