Posted on 09/19/2018 1:44:16 PM PDT by Twotone
The progressive street is leading fossilized Democrats into a sort of collective madness.
The dinosaurs of the party desperately seek relevance by sounding crazier than the new unhinged base that disrupts Senate hearings, loudly pronounces a new socialist future, and envisions octogenarian Maxine Waters as more the future of the party than is septuagenarian Nancy Pelosi. The spectacle is right out of Euripidess Bacchae, as the creaky old guard of the polis, Tiresias and Cadmus, dress up in trendy, ridiculous ritual costumes to stumble along after the racing and frenzied young maenads in their lethal courtship of suicidal Dionysian madness.
Six-term senator Dianne Feinstein is running against a far more radical Democrat, Kevin de León, in Californias general election. (He added the accent and the de to his name in midlife, thereby enhancing his ethnic authenticity.) Feinsteins current Senate colleague, the junior senator Kamala Harris, has been interrupting, sermonizing, and shouting at the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings in a fashion that generates the media buzz and attention usually reserved for supposedly sober and judicious old hands like Feinstein.
Apparently in reaction to these youthful, far-left challenges, a frustrated Feinstein has decided to descend even lower than Harris, who once, after all, joked about killing Trump. (When asked what she would do if stuck in an elevator with Trump and Pence, Harris answered, Does one of us have to come out alive?) Feinstein is now saying that she has had the new evidence about Judge Brett Kavanaugh in her possession for at least six weeks. And now, at the eleventh hour after the confirmation hearings are over, it could gin up enough hysteria, without formal refutation, to sink his nomination to the Supreme Court.

It’s going to get a lot worse.
Within the next seven days I suspect Judge Kavanaugh will be confirmed and the FISA docs will be declassified.
Gonna get much, much worse after that.
I am looking forward to decades of LIBs displaying their lunacy. What mentally imbalanced oafs.
Pretty soon, if not already, Soros will be paying every Democrat voter to vote. LOL
If we had an AG doing his job, he would start indicting all those who lied to the FISA judges.
I know a lot of well meaning, loyal Democrats for generations, who are horrified by what is happening in their party, but they stick to what they perceive as their fellow travelers.
liberals can’t descend any further into madness. They have inhabited the base of the abyss for generations.
Thank you President Trump for exposing the bottom dwelling vermin.
How low will they go? Hillary has already broken a multitude of federal laws, racking up a list of felonies that Soros himself would be proud of. To hear her sputter the words “rule of law” is as revolting as it is hypocritical.
Will they openly demand armed insurrection, and call it mainstream? Then, what will happen? Will the Deep State side with the insane? Are we headed for the Abyss?
Another well written article by Dr. Hanson. But words simply cannot convey the level of insanity we are living through. It’s all beyond belief at this point. No basis in reality at all.
It’s hard to believe the Left could get any more insane,
but just wait till President Trump wins the presidency again in 2020..
Distasteful subject. Enjoyable read.
When I saw the title I knew it had to be Pat Buchanan or Victor Davis Hanson
“I know a lot of well meaning, loyal Democrats for generations, who are horrified by what is happening in their party, but they stick to what they perceive as their fellow travelers.”
not all of the horrifieds are sticking though ... i know some who are walking away ... the horrors of the New Democratic Socialist Party became just too horrific to stay ...
I was never a liberal, but before 9/11 I voted Democrat. After 9/11 I saw how full of CRAP the Democrat party was. I saw Hillary Clinton snearing at Giuliani after he did an Amazing job. I saw George Bush step up and I thanked God that Gore was not POTUS. I saw how the Liberals put power and control over what was best for our country. It opened my eyes to the Lefts lies. How anyone could still vote Democrat after 9/12 is beyond me.
