The ‘Squad’ aims to guillotine the Democratic old guard. By Victor Davis Hanson.
The Democratic Party bears little resemblance to the themes Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton embraced in the 2008 primaries.
The parameters of marriage — “between a man and woman,” in Obama’s words — have now transmogrified beyond gay civil unions to legal gay marriage to transgendered fixations.
Obama once protested that he was no king who could open the border and grant amnesties by fiat. Yet his view of immigration has metamorphosed well beyond Dreamers into Democratic candidates going into Mexico to escort aliens unlawfully into our country — and 500 sanctuary jurisdictions in which federal immigration law is all but null and void.
In a nanosecond, Betsy Ross’ iconic colonial flag, which once emblazoned the backdrop of the 2012 Obama inauguration, has become a racist icon.
ObamaCare has abruptly morphed into “Medicare for All” — including illegal aliens, eligible as soon as they cross the border.
The socialist party has absorbed what is left of the old Democrats. ..
The left always ends up devouring those now not left enough:
But revolutionary carnivores are rarely sated. Once they run out of easy hostile targets, they get hungry and as cannibals start to eye their own.
We have already seen that autophagy in the initial primary debates in which all the major Democratic presidential candidates shouted out the most outlandish agendas possible in a desperate effort to ensure that no rival could possibly pose more to their left.
Poor, condemned Joe Biden renounced almost everything he once believed in and yet still was reduced metaphorically to screaming for his life on the guillotine stage that he was a revolutionary after all!
All the while, Pelosi, Schumer and a host of old Democrats enjoyed the new energy that was directed against the evil Trump. To revolutionary cheers, 1 million illegal aliens crossed the border in the first six months of 2019. The media-left-wing-celebrity nexus sought to devour Trump by myriad means.
Once all these efforts to destroy Trump failed, so too waned superficial revolutionary solidarity. In the manner that Robespierre and his Committee of Public Safety guillotined naïve Girondists, so, too, “the Squad” of Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib are now damning Pelosi as a racist. …
What were the Pelosi generation, the left-wing journalist crowd and the professoriate thinking when they harangued nonstop about the forthcoming irrelevancy of supposed old, white dinosaurs? That thereby, such woke white liberals somehow had purchased exemptions from the very executioners whom they had helped create?
A virtue signaller’s gotta do…
