As many of our readers are aware, SRAZ occasionally devotes a weekend post to a column we view as particularly worthy of our reader’s time. These are posted under the heading “Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter.” Today is, of course, Monday. That title doesn’t work.
Know this: If you set aside three minutes to read, “The Mean-Spirited Left,” it will resonate with you throughout the day. The points are strong and well stated by Powerline’s John Hinderaker, encapsulating other aspects of the lunacy that undergirds today‘s left. You’ll have a clearer frame of reference when reviewing the spectacles we’ve observed leading up to the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as the 114th associate justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. There have been other contentious battles at this level, but none descending into the raw political muck and mire we just witnessed — all part of a steadily creeping, ruthless, contagion that has overtaken the left.
Hinderaker ends his compelling commentary with these words: “Today’s liberals have no decency. None whatsoever. Perhaps the most depressing fact is that, to my knowledge, not a single prominent Democrat has repudiated his party’s descent into madness.”
