Democrats Must Do Better Than Using Hate Card

On Jan. 20, 2017, a protester is carried away from the state Capitol in Nashville, Tenn. Protests in Nashville had some Republicans calling for a crackdown on demonstrators and for resurrecting more stringent security. Democrats pushed back, arguing that access shouldn’t be curtailed only because many of the protesters oppose the policies of President Trump. (Mark Humphrey/AP)

As usual, Bob Dylan said it best. "There are a lot of people who have knives and forks but they don’t have anything on their plates, and they have to cut something."

That someone is now the self-styled "progressives," who control the Democratic Party. The sad truth is that the Democratic Party has been out of good ideas for at least 20 years. The last good idea they had was Bill Clinton’s budget policy, which genuinely put us a nation on a sound economic footing for the first time in decades. Mr. Clinton deserves a long round of applause for that. His economic advisers do, as well.

Since then, the Democrats have morally sunk to become the party of murder of the innocents in the womb — probably the most wicked platform of any major American party ever, the party of the cranks and malcontents, the men and women who scream for peace while rampaging through the streets and attacking police. They have become the party that speaks up for not allowing dissent on campus or in town halls.

They are the party that sneers at the Constitution and wants to turn the running of the country over to the leftist judiciary. They are the party that stands up for the criminals and against those who want to defend their homes. To coin a good phrase, they are the party who stands up for the men who are out of jail before you are out of the hospital.

They are bankrupt morally and have been since Roe v. Wade. They know they’re out of touch with the ordinary, hard-working American who is not "different" in some way worshiped by the media super class. They know they are out of touch with people who work for a living or live on their savings.

So, how do they compete? With hatred. What they lack in moral stature, they make up for in loudness and venom. They are the men and women screaming "Hate! Hate! Hate!" in George Orwell’s "1984," so writes Ben Stein in The American Spectator

Ben Stein is a writer, actor, and lawyer who served as a speechwriter in the Nixon administration as the Watergate scandal unfolded. He began his unlikely road to stardom when director John Hughes as the numbingly dull economics teacher in the urban comedy, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off."
