Americans who love America cannot vote Democrat in 2020
If you watched either or both of the two Democratic Party presidential candidate debates, and if you are a liberal, a conservative or a centrist, you had to have been depressed. The intellectual shallowness, the demagoguery and the alienation from reality were probably unprecedented in American political history. Only a leftist, a socialist or a communist could have gone to bed a happy person on either night.
If you think this is a baseless generalization, here are a few of myriad examples from the first night:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.: "(The economy is not doing great) for the African Americans and Latinx whose families are torn apart, whose lives are destroyed and whose communities are ruined."
Two things stand out: First is Warren's morally reprehensible and false description of the economy. She never explains how the American economy is tearing families apart, destroying lives or ruining communities. Aside from being baseless, it is another left-wing libel against America.
She went on to explain economic inequality in America: "Corruption, pure and simple. We need to call it out." It is difficult to overstate the contempt she and the rest of the left have for America.
Even more troubling was Warren's use of the term "Latinx." When leftist Orwellian newspeak makes its way into the United States Senate and into the vocabulary of a presidential candidate, the country is in trouble.
Here is how HuffPost explains the term (of which it approves):
"Latinx is the gender-neutral alternative to Latino, Latina and even Latin@. ... Latinx is quickly gaining popularity among the general public. It's part of a 'linguistic revolution' that aims to move beyond gender binaries and is inclusive of the intersecting identities of Latin American descendants. In addition to men and women from all racial backgrounds, Latinx also makes room for people who are trans, queer, agender, non-binary, gender non-conforming or gender fluid."
Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.: "If billionaires can pay off their yachts, students should be able to pay off their student loans."
My only response to this statement is to ask, Do most Democrats find that a compelling argument? Do they not realize what a non sequitur it is -- and therefore how demagogic?
