ANALYSIS: TRUE. Democrats are still rushing to extremes.
Jolted by Hillary Clinton’s unexpected loss to Donald Trump, Democrats and progressives have retreated to an alternate reality. In this safe space that they’ve created for themselves, Clinton didn’t lose so much as the Russians won.
Red Mania hasn’t been confined to the fringe, but is being promoted by Democratic representatives, including Maxine Waters and Ted Lieu.
Waters took it so far as to suggest on MSNBC that GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chair of the House Oversight Committee, is leaving Congress because of his “connections” to “what is going on in the Ukraine and perhaps in Russia itself.”
Their reward for pushing this craziness? Becoming national heroes to the Democratic faithful.
As Mencken said, “Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.”
