Political correctness is America’s newest form of intolerance, and it is especially pernicious because it comes disguised as tolerance.

George Carlin

When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?


Both Republican and Democrat have extreme factions in their parties: the far left – the far right.


You can usually tell the Republican far right faction, for they show up with guns and/or spout racist and conspiracy theories that verge on the ridiculous.


The Democrat extreme left wing is less identifiable, and on the surface seem less dangerous.  They support clean energy, Medicare for all, social equality, programs that make a difference to average American; but they also support reparation, defunding police and other radical positions that turn off many voters.   Their single-issue obsession and demand for political correctness sets a purity standard that is, perhaps, more dangerous during an election period, than the nut-jobs on the far right. 


In the last election, their demand for purity resulted in Bernie Bros, Hillary disaffection, and single-issue voters turning their support away from the Democrat candidate to the Green Party and Libertarian Party.  Many withheld their vote.   These purest were complicit in the election of Donald Trump. 


This purity faction still remains in our party, and perhaps to a greater extent than we realize, end up aiding the other side.     

 The real politic is, like it or not, the U.S. has a two-party system, and you either work within that system or, like the old man yelling at clouds, you get the attention that you seek, but help destroy the system you claim to support. 


If you want to see Donald Trump removed from office, you must get behind, and quit criticizing Joe Biden.   You must put aside all your single-issue concerns and keep one focus: to elect Biden for President.

  1. Even though I am more right than left, the outer 30% of both sides scare the hell out of me.

  2. Extremism in any form or philosophy is a dangerous thing. People are their own worst enemy and I do not hold any hope that human nature will ever smarten up. If the last 4 years have not scared the 'bejesus' out of us, what will?


COMMENT: Ben Franklin said, "I imagine a man must have a good deal of vanity who believes, and a good deal of boldness who affirms, that all doctrines he holds are true, and all he rejects are false."
