Yesterday I was listening to the Sean Hannity show as he was interviewing Camille Paglia. She’s a Democrat and has recently authored a book entitled, “Free Women, Free Men: Sex, Gender, Feminism.”
While she is a staunch supporter of candidates such as Bernie Sanders and is sitting on the other side of the ailse from Sean on a great many issues, she is, neverthless, the kind of political opponent that you can’t help but admire. Reason being is that she is…
…wait for it…
The thing that’s truly inspiring and encouraging about her platform is that she champions the talking points of the Democrat party sans the toxic waste that use see with the violence, the demonstrations and the rhetoric coming from Hollywood and even the leaders of the Democrat party. She’s no turncoat, she’s simply recognizes the lethal absudity that inevitably surfaces when you allow your platform to deteriorate into scenarios such as severed heads, staged assasinations and even, like what we’ve recently seen, murder.
It was great to hear a Democrat voice their convictions without insinuating that Trump should either be impeached or killed. Here’s a snippet from a recent article in the Washington Times:
“In an abject failure of leadership that may be one of the most disgraceful episodes in the history of the modern Democratic party, Chuck Schumer, who had risen to become the Senate Democratic leader after the retirement of Harry Reid, asserted absolutely no moral authority as the party spun out of control in a nationwide orgy of rage and spite,” she said in the interview published Thursday. “Nor were there statesmanlike words of caution and restraint from two seasoned politicians whom I have admired for decades and believe should have run for president long ago — Senator Dianne Feinstein and Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi.
“How do Democrats imagine they can ever expand their electoral support if they go on and on in this self-destructive way, impugning half the nation as vile racists and homophobes?” she said.
“Ms. Paglia said President Trump can be accused of “fanning the flames” of opposition, but in general he “seems to be methodically trying to fulfill his campaign promises.””
Camille is not a supporter of Trump, but she can appreciate a leader laboring to fulfill his campaign promises, even if they’re not consistent with her convictions. Moreover, she can respect the rule of law, specifically in the way it’s manifested in the context of the Electoral College and can appreciate that if you want to win the White House you have to do so with ideals and not just ideas and you can’t convince anyone your ideas have any merit as long as your means of communication is puntucated with murder, false accusations and violent protests. In that context, you don’t have a point, you simply have a problem.
Very pleased to meet you, Ms Paglia…
