How Crazy Are the Democrats?
The Democrats have achieved a public relations coup that any ministry of propaganda would be proud of. Worried that the United States is $17 trillion in debt? Radical! Unconcerned about deficits that pile up as far as the eye can see? Responsible! Unhappy about an anemic economy in which a generation of young people struggles to find full-time employment? Traitor! Content with record levels of poverty and non-employment? Moderate! Want to get rid of a law that is opposed by most Americans, decimates the economy and is patently unworkable? Crazy! Delighted at the sight of millions of Americans losing their health insurance and being demoted to part-time employment? Public-spirited!
Only our one-party press makes this topsy-turvy world possible. But there is, in fact, craziness abroad in the land. We see it at MoveOn.org, where Democratic Party activists have started multiple petitions demanding that John Boehner and Ted Cruz be arrested for sedition. At least one of these petitions, as Byron York has noted, has been signed by tens of thousands of Democrats. The left has always been totalitarian at its core, and I really do think that if they could get away with it, liberals would try to criminalize disagreement with their policies. Another incentive to hold the House in 2014!
Thats a rhetorical question, right?
