Democrats set a new low for demagoguery, foolishness, and contempt for America
The last debate among 10 Democrats seeking their party's nomination for president set a new low for demagoguery, contempt for America and just plain foolishness.
Here are some examples:
Andrew Yang: "In America today, everything revolves around the almighty dollar -- our schools, our hospitals, our media, even our government."
It is difficult to imagine a more contemptuous, not to mention erroneous, view of America.
I would like to ask Mr. Yang: Does everything in your life revolve around "the almighty dollar"? In your friends' lives?
If his answer is yes, he is projecting the shallowness of his life onto that of all Americans -- a common trait on the left ("All whites are racists," white leftists tell us, admitting to how contemptible they are).
If his answer is no, he thinks he is morally superior to all other Americans.
In either case, what is clear is his disdain for his country, a disdain that underlies all leftism.
Andrew Yang: "We have to get our country working for us again, instead of the other way around."
Yang's statement is literally the opposite of one of the most famous lines spoken by an American politician since World War II: "Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country," from John F. Kennedy's inaugural address in 1961.
