The Nihilist Caucus

Margaret Carlson:

“There’s a nihilist caucus which is, ‘Listen, we want to burn the place down.’ I mean, they’re not, they’ve strapped explosives to the Capitol and they think they are immune from it. The Tea Party caucus wants this crisis, and do we want to do this again six months from now?”

Merriam-Webster:

Definition of NIHILISM

1
a :  a viewpoint that traditional values and beliefs are unfounded and that existence is senseless and useless
b :  a doctrine that denies any objective ground of truth and especially of moral truths

2
a :  a doctrine or belief that conditions in the social organization are so bad as to make destruction desirable for its own sake independent of any constructive program or possibility
b capitalized:  the program of a 19th century Russian party advocating revolutionary reform and using terrorism and assassination

The Big Lebowski:

DUDE: Man. They were nihilists, man.
WALTER: Huh?
DUDE: They kept saying they believe in nothing.
WALTER: Nihilists! <bleep> me.

    More projection by the Left. Conservatives are “nihilists” and “fascists” for opposing unchecked federal power and massive overreach.
