Democrats, in Showing Their Extremism, Do Our Nation a Favor ~ VIDEO

Opinion

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- In Wednesday evening's Democratic presidential debate circus, the left's favorite darlings turned on one another with a selfish vengeance, which was a positive development for the country and mildly entertaining. The glorious infighting continued among progressive commentators.

This acrimony, coupled with the public exposure of the left's crazy ideas, surely diminished the party's image among sane voters. The more leftists reveal their inanity and extremism, the better for President Trump and the nation.

As one lifelong-Democrat African American caller told Rush Limbaugh the day after the debates, “The Democratic Party is no longer recognizable to me.”

The consensus was that frontrunner Joe Biden was verbally awkward, tripping over numbers and phrases, and providing confusing instructions to viewers seeking to sign up for text message updates from his campaign. While fellow Democrats gave Biden a pass for his politically incorrect comments during his term as vice president, he got no such slack for his debate faux pas.

To be fair, however, you don't have to do much these days to run afoul of progressive thought police. All it took was for Biden to tell Kamala Harris as she was introduced to the stage, “Go easy on me, kid.” Biden was obviously referring to Harris' aggressive attacks on him during the previous debate and playfully, even deferentially, asking her to soften her blows.

Virtue-signaling liberals were compelled to evince indignation. BAFTA Award-winning television writer Dominic Mitchell tweeted, “Kid? She's a grown woman Biden. Come on, man. Don't be such a sexist wuss straight out of the 1950s.” Another Twitter user said Biden used a “single sentence quip intended to simultaneously diminish Harris and characterize her as overly aggressive. He'll say it was a joke, which is what his supporters will claim while belittling critics as humorless and aggressive. Women know it well.” Rev. Laura Everett was harsher, tweeting, “‘Go easy on me, kid' may pass to some as folksy banter, but underneath is centuries of sexism and racism, and a presumption of privilege where niceness avoids critique.”

Far be it from me to defend Joe Biden, but does anyone really believe he intended condescension and sexism there? Yes, I realize the thought police don't care what he meant and are eager to see subconscious slights where none were intended. But give me a break. Biden was just being Colloquial Joe. Period. Even Harris told CNN's Anderson Cooper she wasn't bothered by it.

But let these progressives strut their feigned outrage over such contrived conflicts instead of addressing substantive policy issues that might actually impact Americans' lives. This is who they are, and voters deserve to see that.

It's probably a good thing for Harris that she wasn't too vexed over Biden's alleged patronizing because she committed a worse violation along those lines against Tulsi Gabbard after Gabbard attacked her record as attorney general of California. Instead of addressing the substance of Gabbard's complaint, Harris rudely dismissed Gabbard personally during an interview with Cooper, referring to herself as a “top-tier candidate” and to Gabbard as being “at 0 or 1% or whatever she might be at.”

Democrats also did the nation a rare service in, once again, revealing their certifiably insane policy positions, from health care to the environment. And as if to make sure voters wouldn't dare doubt their extremism, they all circled the wagons when any among them strayed from the party line and questioned the practicality of their proposals. When debate moderators or rival candidates challenged contenders to justify the financial cost of their plans, they were quickly accused of invoking “Republican talking points.” We saw this from Crazy Bernie, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Julian Castro. Excellent. Any time a Democrat pretends to brush up against reality and common sense, another one savages him or her for acting like a Republican. I dare say Republicans have no problem with that image.

To further illustrate that there were no holds barred last night, the contestants were apparently so determined to knock front-runner Biden off his lofty perch that they attacked the policies of their idol, former President Obama, the man Biden served so faithfully. MSNBC's Joe Scarborough was none too pleased that these upstarts criticized Obama's agenda, including his immigration and health care policies. “It is insanity, my friends,” said Scarborough. “We were sort of in a Never-never land last night in that debate. It was bizarre.” Scarborough said many Democrats were furious at these candidates for “trashing Barack Obama's legacy. … Give me a break. What's wrong with you people? You're going up against Donald Trump, and you're talking about defending Obamacare as Republican talking points? Who is advising you?” Co-host Mika Brzezinski agreed, saying this turn of events must have pleased Trump.

You're right, Mika. All Republicans have to be pleased and looking forward to more of the same.

“When I was attorney general of California we put resources into allowing law enforcement to actually knock on the doors of people who were on lists. We sent law enforcement out to take those guns, because, listen, we have to deal with this on all levels, but we have to do this with a sense of urgency,” Harris added.

I had much better ways of wasting my time than by watching those idiots. When O’Buckwheat was elected, I gave up on the mainstream media and watching any politician give a speech, especially O’Buckwheat. To this day, I won’t listen to any politician; if I want to hear lies, distorted facts and ignorance passing for knowledge I’ll talk with my ex-wife.

I watched the debates just to see them tear each other apart. I was funny at times. The main thing I came away with was a fear that one of these loose cannons was going to promise enough free stuff that they would get elected. That would be the demise of this country. There is not a healthy brain cell between all of them combined. Yea, a president Castro, President Yang, president shotgun Joe, president heals up Harris. You think we are the laughing stock of the world now that would really put the icing on the cake.

A question for the candidates at the next debate should simply ask, Where do you expect all of the money you will need to give away all of the free stuff you’re promising will come from? What we’ll see is the deer in the headlight stare and their mouths hanging open unable to answer the question.

For evil to be purged from humanity, it must first be brought to the surface for all to see.

The Dems are preaching to their own choir, and according to the ratings less than 11 million watched the second debate.
From Politico: Night 2 of Detroit Dem debates drew 10.7 million viewers, well below June ratings.

The rest of us don’t care about their shouting fest over who is further Left.

The reason this is coming as a surprise to most life long democrats is very simple. The Progressive New Left, read Weatherman Underground took over the democrat party decades ago. They have been quietly working to purge the party of genuine liberals and replace them with community organizers. The reason you don’t know what has been going on is because the leadership of the democrat party did not and does not trust you and identified you as not being a “kewl kid.” As a result you are not invited to inner party parties and are kept away from events where… Read more »

He Fights . by Evan Sayet My Leftist friends constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.” Here’s my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried propriety: has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney? And the results were always the same. This is because, while… Read more »
