does the name Joe Crowley ring a bell?
Crowley was the Democrat Congressman from the 14th district of New York. He was also Chairman of the Democrat Caucus and a leader and rising star in the Democrat party.
in 2018 Crowley lost his primary election to the then-unknown Alexandria Ocasio Cortez.
By all accounts Crowley was a perfectly serviceable Eastern Liberal seemingly destined to be in Congress for life.
what happened? Ms. Cortez unseated him with a full-bore left wing 'Progressive' (Socialist) campaign.

as of now, the Summer of 2020, it seems the Democrat party 'leadership' consists of a bunch of frightened old career politicians constantly out-lefting each other to save themselves from future more-left-than-you competition.
in addition, the Democrats are trying to placate the media, which is also trending further and further (to the point of hysteria) to the left.

can anyone imagine Joe Biden, five or ten years ago, having no problem with defunding the police? He's not leading, he's following.
can anyone imagine any politician advising people to carry money to give to thieves to avoid violence? unthinkable a few years ago, now Minneapolis policy.

telling the police to stand down and let rioters destroy buildings (including government ones)? unthinkable a few years ago.

I'm really thinking this will all come back to bite the dems this fall. the American people are not leftist zealots and are not in favor of placating thieves and rioters.
democrats in serious democrat districts will be safe but in any kind of competitive areas these far-left policies will be albatrosses around their necks. how is Moderate Mabel going to explain to the good folks in Missouri that burning down Portland is a good thing?

its possible the democrats will try a right turn this fall to appeal to the center, but that will leave their leftist extreme wing very angry and could even turn some of the riots against them.

I'm really hoping the democrats will stop listening to the extremists--by this I mean anyone advocating violence, defunding police, restricting ICE and other law enforcement groups, toleration of crime, and anyone who is offended by 'All Lives Matter'.
it would be best for democrats and the country at large to stop kowtowing to the extremists. lets build up and stop tearing down (and cheering those tearing down).

Implying any politicians want what's best for the country and not to line their pockets with as much money as possible while #ing the country then #ing off with their gains.

I hope you realize the democrats, progresives are in a different reality right. the rioters that you speak are peaceful protestors merely fighting for change. IF only Trump and his goon squad would stop terrorizing people. thats what they think. even though you have indisputable proof. and even if you corner them "its just a few bad apples" they have chants that say "burn it to the ground"

Because of the polarization that we have had there is nothing that the extermist could do to turn them away from voting for Joe Biden.

please don't take CNN's word for what's happening.
they are not peaceful protestors. they are domestic terrorists swinging pipes and throwing rocks and shooting lasers at police officers' eyes.
at this site we're supposed to deny ignorance, not promote it.
www.foxnews.com...


People in the crowd Saturday night threw rocks, bottles, and unknown liquids over the fence, and were shining lasers and launching fireworks at the building, police said.

As officers tried to disperse the crowd, police said they were hit with bottles and paint balloons. People also shot mortar-style fireworks at officers from the ground and from parking garages.
