‘You Cannot Be Civil’

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton agree on the current state of the Democratic party.

At a time when it’s said that anything is possible in American politics, the impossible just happened. Hillary Clinton has aligned herself with Donald Trump’s view of the Democratic Party.

Mr. Trump has been using his political rallies to denounce “the radical Democrats” as “an angry mob.” On Tuesday, Mrs. Clinton told CNN: “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about.” You cannot be civil. Behold the Trump sun and the Clinton moon in a moment of political eclipse.

It’s hard to pick out exactly when in the past month the Democrats shifted the national focus away from Mr. Trump and onto their own behavior. I’d say it was the Senate’s final vote Saturday on Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

Democrats had thrown everything at Judge Kavanaugh, and it was over. But not in the Senate gallery. On cue, literally, spectators started shrieking at the senators on the floor. Guards moved toward the chamber’s doors, and the vote stopped while the screamers were removed.

During Ronald Reagan’s presidency, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations was Jeane Kirkpatrick, who in some ways was a template for Nikki Haley’s U.N. tenure as an unapologetic defender of America’s interests. At the Republicans’ 1984 national convention, Kirkpatrick delivered a speech memorable for one phrase—“the San Francisco Democrats.” The idea behind “the San Francisco Democrats” has never died. It stands for a party of the unelectable left. That year, Reagan defeated Walter Mondale by 525 to 13 electoral votes.

Democrats will complain it is beyond chutzpah for Donald Trump to brand them as divisive or radical after he has spent his presidency polarizing the electorate with his rhetoric andTwitter account. Maybe, but that was then. Whatever else was at issue in the midterm elections, it has been overtaken by the Kavanaugh nomination, which transfixed the nation for weeks.

The Democrats were in OK shape through phase one of the Kavanaugh hearings, a sometimes intense back-and-forth about his judicial beliefs. But it was phase two—the Christine Blasey Ford weeks, brought forth by Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Democratic Party activists—that defined the battle lines for the November elections.

What do you fear the Democrats want to control?

Everything.

That one was good.  I agree with everything he said!!

But why don't you take his advice?

You nurture the fight between the "right" and "left" gleefully.  You post racist memes, hateful images and just toxic crap!

You're doing exactly what he said not to do.  Fighting with the "enemy" you created and ignoring the big picture.

I can't even pin you down on a single issue!

I think you care more about the divide in your country than the solution to the problems.

Save the Democrats: Crush Them at the Polls

Help them reverse their unicorn ride into hell.

The screams from the U.S. Senate gallery during the ayes and noes on Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation were the Democratic party’s cries for help. Voters should arrange the major intervention that Democrats sorely need, so they might regain their mental health.

What should have been a solemn occasion last Saturday afternoon — the then-nominee’s supporters and opponents quietly and gracefully waiting to see if he had enough votes to reach the nation’s highest court — instead sounded like chilling shrieks from a psychiatric hospital.

And, frankly, today’s Democratic Left resembles an insane asylum.

• Leftist mobs have screamed at Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas), Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, and other Republicans and hounded them out of restaurants.

• These thugs screamed at Maine’s Susan Collins, Arizona’s Jeff Flake, and Utah’s Orrin Hatch in Capitol Hill elevators and hallways last week.

• Leftists screamed at GOP senators Bob Corker of Tennessee, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, and David Perdue of Georgia at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

• Screaming agitators repeatedly interrupted Kavanaugh’s confirmation proceedings and had to be dragged from the Senate Judiciary Committee’s (SJC) hearing room.

Rather than beg these unhinged hooligans to cease and desist, Democratic leaders encouraged their eruptions.

• Senate Democratic whip Dick Durbin of Illinois blessed the outbursts at Kavanaugh’s hearing. Durbin said: “What we heard is the noise of democracy.”

Because 'everything' is too nebulous for you?
