An ugly, disintegrating Democratic Party and the American left

Disintegrating Democratic Party

WASHINGTON:  Not that long ago, the mere mention of the Democratic Party conjured images of Camelot, with First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy looking like European royalty as she danced with her handsome and tuxedoed husband Jack at his inaugural ball.

Forget all that.

An ugly truth

When you think of today’s Democratic Party, its face is haggard, frightening, and bears a perpetual scowl. That face belongs to what President Donald Trump correctly calls the “low IQ” Congresswoman from Southern California, Maxine Waters.

She’s on a mission to impeach President Trump before he has a chance to fix the panoply of problems saddled on our once free society by her crazed, authoritarian party.




Waters has served in Congress nearly three decades with little to no benefit for her predominantly African-American constituents. Trump is in office 500 days and unemployment for American blacks is at a historic low.

Unraveling Obama’s ugly legacy

And President Obama’s health care monstrosity is on its last legs, his economy-crushing executive orders are relegated to the ash heap of history, and the cords he used to bind America to the Paris climate and Iran nuclear deals, Trump has happily severed.

Oh, and North Korean strongman Kim Jong-un may give up his nukes in an agreement negotiated by artful dealer Trump.

Changing the high court’s ugly, leftist complexion

Worse still, Trump has an opportunity to reshape the U.S. Supreme Court, appointing justices that interpret the Constitution based on what the document actually says and not imaginary “penumbras and emanations.”

And it’s likely he’ll have appointed three justices to the high court if Ruth Bader Ginsburg shuffles off her mortal coil sometime in his second term.

Trump’s successes have brought many in the virtue-signaling entertainment community to a Maxine Waters delusionary state. Actor Robert De Niro’s expletive-rich, anti-Trump outburst at the Tony Awards was reminiscent of the down-and-out loser Travis Bickle that he played in the film “Taxi Driver.”

And with Trump enforcing existing immigration laws, the left has organized psychotic demonstrations calling for the abolition of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

DNC politics: A gilded path to the Nancy Pelosi political payday



The new and ugly face of democratic socialism

And then New Yorkers unseated Rep. Joe Crowley, who many believed would replace Nancy Pelosi as Democratic Minority Leader or House Speaker.  But his 28-year-old primary challenger and democratic socialist, Alexandria Ocosio-Cortez, unseated Crowley thanks to the good folks of New York’s 14th Congressional District.

Ocosio-Cortez would like to replace Maxine Waters as a younger, naïve visage of the Democratic Party – at a time democratic socialist Venezuela descends into chaos and starvation.

All the hair-pulling and self-destructive behavior above is emblematic of a party and ideological movement in collapse.

Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad. And Maxine Waters, the raving lunatic of Washington, D.C., is all the proof one needs.

The ugliness south of the border

One small sliver of hope for the left is that the politically superstitious folks they wish would flood the U.S., the people of Mexico, have elected as president the hard-left, democratic socialist politician Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.

Perhaps America’s left will do the rest of us a favor and slip across our porous border into Mexico. They can then enjoy the fruits of corrupt, Latin American social-justice, where poverty has reduced entire regions to a Hobbesian state of nature.

They can then avoid dealing with the new American reality: Everything is coming up Trump.
