With both the mainstream media and the Democratic Party’s presidential candidates in a running gun battle to see who can reach Karl Marx-level socialism first, watching the primary debates can be frustrating. We make a point to do it anyway, but we thank our lucky stars that there are people out there willing to do it for the rest of us.
In case you missed it, this week’s two debates further demonstrated what we already saw during the first round. There is an ideological civil war in the Democratic Party right now, and it was being fought in real time between no-name congressmen and woke rising stars like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.
Weirdly, the aforementioned Sanders and Warren avoided attacking each other during Tuesday’s debate — even though they are essentially running the same campaign. While the Massachusetts senator insists on referring to herself as a capitalist — perhaps as a way to differentiate herself from her Vermont rival — she is still campaigning on Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, free healthcare for illegal immigrants, open borders, and everything else that would make your typical keyboard communist blush. Sanders is doing the same thing on all fronts, but yelling louder while doing so.
The second round of debates this week was a bit more eventful. Kamala Harris continued to jab at Joe Biden, but not nearly to the same degree of success as their first bout. The former Vice President has picked up significant ground since his first performance, making it even harder to imagine the eventual Democratic Party’s nominee being anyone else. The real surprise came from Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, who tactfully highlighted Harris’ hypocrisy in bragging and laughing about enjoying the cannabis plant during her youth, but spending her years as California’s top prosecutor locking up scores of young Americans for doing the exact same thing.
During both nights, we saw CNN moderators become nearly indistinguishable from the candidates they were questioning. Seriously — Don Lemon might as well drop his gig at the network and run for office, because roughly all of America knows where he stands at this point.
There were a few voices of reason in the room, but they were few and far between. And of course, they didn’t garner anything close to the amount of screen time their radical contenders did. It’s obvious — the Democratic Party and its mainstream media acolytes are removing everything moderate from their brand. There is no more “center-left” — there are only “progressives” and “democratic socialists.”
