The left's descent into obscenity

By Patricia McCarthy May 20,  2017

Ever since Donald Trump won the presidency, the left's descent into madness has taken many forms, none more distasteful than its embrace of profanity and gross scatological references.   The worst in recent days is from Anderson Cooper, who accused Jeffrey Lord of defending Trump "if he took a dump on his desk." It was Cooper who some years ago infamously used the term "tea-bagger" to demean the Tea Party. He thought nothing of using a gay slur to insult citizens who favor smaller government and lower taxes.

CNN is most likely proud of itself. But it's hardly alone. Thomas Perez, the new head of the Democratic National Committee, is proud of his calculated use of profanity. His party's base likes it, and the Democrats always play to the basest of the base. They even poll and focus-group their use of profanity! The base says yes! So they amp it up. And who watches the profanity-laced late-night comics? SNL? The View? MSNBC? Leftists, whose angry intolerance of the slightest hint of an opposing view is legendary. Who but the most mind-numbed and ill-informed among us would listen to Lawrence O'Donnell? Whoopie Goldberg? Jimmy Kimmel? Bill Maher? Only persons as filled with hate and prejudice as each of those people.............More
