Or is there a nationwide surplus of hyperbole, one which can only be neutralized by essays like this on in Front Page Mag:
The Democrats have become a terrorist party. And their commitment to a radical revolution has plunged our political system into chaos. The left is now exactly where it wanted to be.
And a civil war has begun.
The thesis seems to be that the left has become the radical left, intent on a #resistance to the point of tearing America apart. Oddly, the left says this sort of thing about the right every now and then:The extreme right-wing of the Republican Party has taken over the party, and will harm America with their pro-life, anti-LGBT, gun-toting, blah…
I suggest that the American left just wants power, not destruction. If the off-year elections go their way, the stupid will die down.
The Antifa and the astroturf warriors are only a tiny slice of even the most radical elements on the left. They are less committed to the struggle than the right, and less inclined to get up once their knocked down.
Social Justice Warriors are that in name only. If trashing a Starbucks is their idea of Lexington, or Fort Sumpter…I wouldn’t worry.
