Maureen Dowd is a prototypical super-liberal columnist. In a recent Op-Ed in the NY Times, she said that a certain group “acts as though anyone who dares disagree with them is bad. Not wrong, but bad, guilty of some human failing, some impurity that is a moral evil that justifies their venom.” Now we honest conservatives–and anyone with ears to hear, eyes to see, at least minimal brain power–know that is how the Perfectionist Progressives treat us. Who was the group saying what Dowd was referring to? It was the Progressives in the Democrats’ shiny, new electees! No surprise there. The surprise was the group that is the object of their wrath was–the Democrat leadership! Stop the presses, the young Perfectionist Progressives are turning the fire hoses of their wrath on their own leaders! Because they know best.
The A.O.C. crew threw down the gauntlet in a recent opinion piece in The Washington Post by The Intercept’s Ryan Grim. He wrote that when Pelosi and other Democratic mandarins try to keep the image of the party centrist, they are crouching in “the defensive posture” they’ve been in since the Reagan revolution. Corbin Trent, a spokesman for A.O.C. and co-founder of Justice Democrats, the progressive group that helped propel her, told Grim: “The greatest threat to mankind is the cowardice of the Democratic Party,” with the older generation “driven by fear” and “unable to lead.”
“Unable to lead?” Lead where, off the cliff, as in almost ALL the Perfectionist Progressive new ideas and unworkable policies? “Driven by fear?” Of what, of whom? Establishment Republicans? Puleese! No, fear of The Donald, who inconveniently happens to be President, mean tweets and all. Too bad, M.A.G.A. baby.
