For John, BLUF: Democrats are in denial. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The Hill and Reporter Lisa Hagen, on Friday, the 28th.
How does Law Professor Glenn Harlan Reynolds put it? "They told me that if I voted for Trump it would be like Nazi Germany"?
While Senators Bernie Sanders and Chuck Schumer, and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, deny it, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez is saying different.
He followed up with another statement last week, saying that every Democrat should be pro-abortion rights — a stance Perez said is “not negotiable” and shouldn’t vary by city or state, according to The Huffington Post.Since the Democrats♠ are really attacking Deviationism, perhaps the better analogy is to the Soviet Union. Think of poor Earl Browder and Browderism.
In the mean time, would someone please explain to me how this is going to help Democrats gain votes in the next election? Opposition to abortion in each of the four trimesters is not restricted to a small group of uneducated Caucasians, mostly Roman Catholics, in the hinterlands. Ms Ilyse Hogue notwithstanding.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
Regards — Cliff
♠ From the article there is this quote from NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue: "If Democrats think the path forward following the 2016 election is to support candidates who substitute their own judgment and ideology for that of their female constituents, they have learned all the wrong lessons and are bound to lose."
