The New Phase of Ideological Agitation

11 Apr

Charles Krauthammer has always been one of my favorite political commentators and his most recent article defines the current Democratic party and their followers better than anyone ever could. So without any additional commentary, I will simply post a few choice excerpts from Krauthammer:

“……. the left is entering a new phase of ideological agitation — no longer trying to win the debate but stopping debate altogether, banishing from public discourse any and all opposition.”

“Like the CEO of Mozilla who resigned under pressure just 10 days into his job when it was disclosed that six years earlier he had donated to California’s Proposition 8, which defined marriage as between a man and a woman. But why stop with Brendan Eich, the victim of this high-tech lynching? Prop 8 passed by half a million votes. Six million Californians joined Eich in the crime of “privileging” traditional marriage. So did Barack Obama. In that same year, he declared that his Christian beliefs made him oppose gay marriage.”

“To this magic circle of forced conformity, the left would like to add certain other policies, resistance to which is deemed a “war on women.” It’s a colorful synonym for sexism. Leveling the charge is a crude way to cut off debate.”

“Closed to debate. Open only to intimidated acquiescence.”
