“Never let a crisis go to waste.” It’s all the Left has – attack the culture, attack the culture, attack the culture. Never govern; seize upon crises to move your agenda forward. And most of all, follow Rule 13: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Never acknowledge the other side simply has a different perspective which might be valid; demonize them.
Doing this is crucial to today’s Left. It’s one reason why they treat conservatives as a worse enemy than radical jihadists. They’d rather rule over the ruins of this country than contribute in a lesser role to its success.
