A Victim of Their Own Success?

I think there might be something to this WSJ article.

The left had important achievements. It did rescue America from an unsustainable moral illegitimacy. It also established the great menace of racism as America’s most intolerable disgrace. But the left’s success has plunged it into its greatest crisis since the ’60s. The Achilles’ heel of the left has been its dependence on menace for power. Think of all the things it can ask for in the name of fighting menaces like “systemic racism” and “structural inequality.” But what happens when the evils that menace us begin to fade, and then keep fading?

Read the whole thing. I’m not saying there’s no racism anymore, but I do get the sense that the Democratic coalition has been rocked by its own success in the culture wars, and has been desperately looking for issues to hold their coalition together.

    I hate to be caustic and to blatant, but with regards to racism in America,…….

    The Democrat Party simply exposed the truth of its racist existence in that it just changed colors. Look at the theme of their arguments advocating for illegal immigration. The RACE AND ETHNICITY of the largest demographic of illegal aliens gives them RACE AND ETHNICALLY BASED ENTITLEMENT to illegally enter and stay in America, and makes them entitled to US Citizenship.

    Ergo, there was never a “party-switch” after LBJ signed the 1964 Civil Rights Act. That was and has been revealed to be nothing bu B***S*** based, leftist propaganda, and nonsensical Democrat Party based Talking Points.

    Also, the Gun-Banners are now activating their assault on the 1st Amendment. Just a step into the institutionalization of “Hate Speech” Laws into the Country. Some filthy, Leftist-Hack, Democrat Party Activist Judge will of course, uphold this law.

    Probably why they made sure Obama/Satoro/whatever his real name is was put in office, to stir up the embers of racial divide again.

    Who championed the Civil rights act? Which democrats voted for it?
