What Has Gotten Into the Democrats?

In their skittishness they’re no longer giving peace a chance.

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr. March 8, 2017

The average American is understandably perplexed as to why Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and, of course, runner up in last year’s Democratic primaries, Bernie Saunders, are so lathered up over the Republicans’ recent overtures to the Russians.  They are calling for the impeachment of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. They want a special prosecutor to look into President Donald Trump’s relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

What has gotten into the Democrats? Why are they so bellicose toward Moscow?

The old Soviet economy was something that Bernie Saunders and Pelosi and even the Schumer of recent edition could identify with...........I well remember the glowing praise of yesterday’s progressives for the Soviet economy. There were, for instance, John Kenneth Galbraith of Harvard and Lester Thurow of MIT in the 1980s enthusing over Soviet prosperity just as Mikhail Gorbachev was about to come to power............ Do you recall Senator Edward Kennedy, the Lion of the Senate, writing Soviet leaders Leonid Brezhnev and Yuri Andropov in secret correspondence aimed at undermining Presidents Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan? Most probably you do not...........These Democrats are mercurial. No wonder more and more Americans are coming to the conclusion that the country is in better hands with a real estate developer.......To Read More.....

My Take - Here's what wrong with the left - Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Socialists, Communists, or whomever embraces leftist theology - they have no moral foundation other than acquiring as much power as possible, and in many cases killing those who they can't co-opt, and in the 20th century that turned into 100 million innocent people either murdered outright or deliberately starved to death. 

We need to get this.  Leftism is a secular religion, and these leftists "are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness."  The left will preen, prance and grand stand each and every new found morality everytime they can find one.....even if each new found morality is antithetical to the last one.
