The appalling descent of liberalism

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.”

    There are no “prominent Democrats”.
    There are no Democrats, except uniformed people who vote out of fear—which was instilled in them by the Left.
    Hells bells, look what a few million free Obama phones got the Left.

    Prominent Democrats like who?
    Corey Booker, who destroyed Newark, NJ when he was the mayor?

    Diane Feinstein, who employed a Chinese spy on her staff in Congress for decades, and has seen Zero punishment for that?

    Valerie Jarrett, who is Really Obama’s Handler. Born in Iran to Communist parents who were born in America, she openly praised her Muslim religion while at Stanford. Jarrett, was an integral part of every Chicago government agency, as well as a mover and shaker in several law firms before Barry was ready for prime time.

    Jarrett is now busy on a couple fronts:
    Spending a lot of time in Minnesota cranking up the Somalian communities there. Minnesota is LOST.

    Jarrett is also mentoring the California Fraudster Kamala Harris.
    Obama is personally teaching Harris how to develop that silky smooth way of giving empty speeches.
    And Harris now has over 500 Million dollars in her war chest.
    Her “security team” are all muslim brotherhood thugs.
    And Corey Booker is p*ssed. It was his turn, doncha know?

    Valerie Jarrett has been busy tweeting of late.
    Tweeting sweet, empty words to “victims of abuse”.
    She says that “change is coming”.
    Yet there are many photos of her in the company of Bill Clilnton.
    Just her and Bill, standing together, chatting, laughing.

    More importantly, Valerie Jarrett has no problem with John Podesta, one of HIllary’s fixers. Val Jarr liked to attend parties with JP.
    Parties where terrible things went on. Evil, sick, terrible things.

    The are No Prominent Democrats.

    Just sick, evil vessels filled with hate provided by satan.

    When you find out about these people, you will puke.

    Hinderaker does a great job of explaining the decay that has overtaken the party my value-based parents belonged to. I have no doubt they would be solid Republicans in today’s world and would have been horrified had they been able to see this decline. Like many of their generation, they were FDR voters. My Dad enlisted after Pearl Harbor was bombed and they married following his return from WWII.

  3. East Valley Conservative says:

    Desecrating tombstones and destroying monuments are tactics of the depraved. In my opinion that word defines many of today’s democrats. They are unable to process history, desiring only to obliterate it. That’s what the Soviet book burners did.

    • Realist says:

      Well stated! Depravity is the new “D” word description for Dems. It displaces “Deceptive” (think: Bill and Hill Clinton), “Destructive” (think: Obama) and “Drunken Debaucher” (think: Ted Kennedy, who was lauded as the ‘Lion of the Senate’ by none other than the defender of all Dems and their issues, John McCain ).

    In the end, good wins out.

    Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in as an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court just a short time ago. It was a moving ceremony and the speeches from both the President and Kavanaugh were superb.

    Evil rarely gets a foothold when decent people do the right thing.
