I am going to put a few posts up over the day regarding the distressing state of our country. There is always a temptation to try to be reasonable and ascribe cause to all sides of policy issues. This tendancy, however well intentioned, allows extremists to not only survive but thrive. The reality is that that difficulties our country currently faces are almost exclusively due to the whacko progressives (who are truly regressives in regard to what their policies do to the quality of life) who have captured the Democrat party. They are whackos because their ideas would seem too absurd and ludicrous to be taken seriously by any politician even 25 years ago. A clever manipulation of universities, public education, public employment, the media and language has bizarrely allowed this drivel to become a dominant thread in our public discourse.
Not only is this group intellectually bereft, but it cannot tolerate any dissent, any deviation from its dogma. It is startlingly akin to Islamic fundamentalism in this regard. Disagree and off with your head. This was on full display in regard to the Supreme Court’s abortion decision. This supposedly enlightened group which is so sensitive to the rights of people regardless of their innate characteristics or chosen religion, delivered a crescendo of vile bile. The worst of this filth was directed at an African-American on the Court, Justice Thomas, including death threats and frequent use of the N-word, which is apparently ok if you are a pro(re)gressive. The other target was a female jurist, Justice Comey-Barrett, with similarly was derided in regard to both her gender and her religion.
The best aspect of this outpouring of despicable ill wishes was that it should be apparent to everyone that the identity politics-happy pro(re)gressive tribe is the most racist, sexist, bigoted group in the country. They are the sole source of our increasingly dysfunctional government and things will not get better until they are defeated, completely irrevocably defeated and washed from public life.
