For all the accusations lodged against Trump accusing him of breaking our hallowed political norms, it is the Democrat Party that is running on a ticket of actually breaking those norms.
It is the Left that considers speech with which they disagree to be “hate speech,” wants to take guns away from law-abiding citizens, remove protections from our borders, lower the voting age to 16, pack the Supreme Court, make late-term abortion acceptable, and end the electoral college because they lost in 2016.
Look at almost any college campus to see examples of Leftist students and professors claiming conservative thought is discriminatory. In the wake of any mass shooting, Democrats immediately demand “common sense” gun reforms that actually amount to turning law-abiding citizens into criminals for exercising their Second Amendment right. Just look at the Democrats praising New Zealand for banning the sale of “semi-automatic” weapons (a term they don’t even understand) after last week’s horrific shooting.
Last year, Democrats began demanding we abolish the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), essentially saying we should stop protecting our borders. Democratic National Committee Deputy Chair Keith Ellison (D-MN) was even photographed wearing a shirt that translated to “I don’t believe in borders.”
Democrats this year have also been trying to make late-term abortion acceptable. Presidential candidates won’t say they would ban the practice. Beto O’Rourke recently replied to a question about what doctors should do with a child born alive after a failed abortion — he responded with the canned talking point that it’s a woman’s decision.
Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam said during a radio program that a baby born alive “would be kept comfortable, the infant would be resuscitated if this is what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physician and the mother.”
That’s infanticide, and the Democrats are okay with it. They refused to vote for a bill that would require doctors to care for infants who survived botched abortions, just as they would for any struggling child. Democrats claimed the bill was about taking away a woman’s right to choose abortion — even though the bill said nothing about that choice.
Democrats are now even saying that 16-year-olds should be allowed to vote. Why? Because our school systems have indoctrinated them into believing liberal policies are the only correct policies. These students haven’t learned to think for themselves, and Democrats want them to vote to shore up their numbers.
But their two worst — and dumbest — proposals have related to the Supreme Court and the Electoral College. Because Democrats lost the EC in 2016, suddenly it was unfair, even though it’s the most fair way to ensure as many votes count — and not just the votes from a few large cities or states.
Finally, Democrats are proposing to pack the Supreme Court because they weren’t able to nominate two more justices. You’d think they would have learned after destroying the filibuster and President Barack Obama’s executive actions that setting precedents is a bad idea — unless they still believe they can never lose an election.
