In 2020, it's Democrats' absurdity vs. Trumpian common sense | TheHill: Bernie Sanders thinks Americans want a revolution. No, we want sanity!
It may be a new year and a new decade, but it looks like Democrats are determined to continue their descent into utter foolishness. As we approach the 2020 presidential election, voters will weigh policies and opinions that have been pushed by the party’s far-left flank. In this country, where 70 percent still self-identify as “conservative” or “moderate,” that is unlikely to turn out well for Democrats.
Even President Obama has warned that Democrats’ uncompromising push for political correctness, amplified by social media, has led their party to a difficult and dangerous place.
On more than one occasion, the former president has argued that some on the Left have weaponized political correctness to shut down debate, stifling legitimate arguments. "This idea of purity, and you're never compromised, and you're always politically woke, and all that stuff, you should get over that quickly,” Obama said in an NPR interview this fall. “The world is messy. There are ambiguities. People who do really good stuff have flaws."
Democrats have become a party of such judgment and omniscience, that they brook no contravention. They have made their tent smaller and smaller, and allowed controversial and even preposterous policies to become mainstream Democratic doctrine.
