You might be old enough to remember when Democrats and Republicans actually worked together to solve issues. Sure, there were always disagreements, but if you watch debate videos from decades past, you’ll see a level of respect and unity that seems foreign today. Even when the parties disagreed on issues, they were often able to find at least some common ground.
Those days are long behind us, but it hasn’t been the bulk of the Democrats pushing the issues. Moderate liberals still exist, and they still tend to be at least a little bit reasonable. The extremism has come almost solely from a radicalized portion of the party: the progressives. Progressives are mostly young, largely uneducated and extremely vocal in their views. They openly embrace socialism, a complete deconstruction of modern society and a hatred for the American way and success in general.
The progressives have been at the core of every extreme push you’ve seen in the last 10 years. They are the ones who can’t tell a man from a woman and need trigger warnings to read Shakespeare. They are the true enemy of the American people. At least, that’s been true up until now.
The mainstream Democrats are increasingly convinced that they will only retain power if they cater to the extremists. It didn’t work so well for the National Socialist Party in Germany some years ago. It won’t be a good idea now. Watch this video. You’ll see just how scary things are and how desperately we need to keep progressives out of power.
