Many on the right and left wish to see “The Squad” just go away. They’re hoping that these radicals – Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley – are all defeated in the next election.
But I tend to agree with President Trump. Give them a soap box and a microphone, and allow them to spout their radical leftist nonsense all they like. Allow them the opportunity to continue to drag the Democratic Party further left, while driving the likes of Nancy Pelosi and the old-guard leadership nuts.
As they force the left further toward communism, even liberals, who just a few years ago we classified as leftist, appear almost reasonable – at least at times, and relative to this new crop.
It just goes to show, once again, that no matter how woke and cutting-edge progressive you think you are, there will always be someone more radical.
Remember the good ol’ days, when the leftists were people like Bill Maher and John Stewart?
If it doesn’t seem like that long ago, you’d be right. It wasn’t.
Barack Obama, many on the right claimed, would be the death of the republic. Now he’d be hard-pressed to even win the Democratic nomination.
The left has descended so rapidly down the rabbit hole of radicalism that everything seems to be traveling at light-speed.
Gone are the days when liberals were just annoying loud mouths.
A perfect example of a woke leftist not being woke enough is Bill Maher agreeing with Trump that Israel made the right decision barring the Jew-haters, Tlaib and Omar, entry to Israel.
