Gerard vanderleun, of American Digest, a former Democrat, spills his guts:
The monsters from the id that now control the Democrat Party have transformed that party into a mob of undead extras from The Dawn of the Dead. It’s an indecent and disgusting spectacle and I suspect there’s more than a few million long-time Democrats who are revolted by it. That certainly seems to be creeping into the polls. No matter the good it once did, the Democrats today present as sick and crazed political party that is so greedy and hungry for power that it will do anything, including selling its country down the drain, to get it back.
Regardless of the race of the Democrats’ selected nominee, Martin Luther King’s dream of judging people by the content of their character and not the color of their skin has been transformed into a tawdry thing; a dried husk in which they wrap their skeletal remains, a hollow phrase spewed by the ascendent race hustlers of the party and lapped up by their acolytes.
Until 2004, with the exception of Guiliani’s second term as mayor, I voted the Democrat ticket in every election since 1967. In 2004, offered the Insane Clown Posse of John Kerry and John Edwards, I voted for George Bush. The spectacle of the last four years of various Democrats reaching for the gold ring did not inspire me to change my view. Only the dead enjoy parties in a crypt. Not even Roman columns improve the Charnal house atmosphere that fumes through the party today.
From the party that gave us FDR, Truman, JFK and even, yes, LBJ, the Democrats have gone through a process of gradual but inexorable devolution to the party of such weak, tepid and compromised souls as Carter, Clinton, Kerry, and now Obama – the ultimate bargainer, the race hustler with an Ivy League sheepskin. But these chestless men the Party puts up are only the shadows cast by the compromises it has made within itself. It has made many compromises over the years, taken in many “causes” each one more dubious and rotten than the last.
As a result of this unremitting ideological promiscuity, the “progressive” party has become progressively more diseased from each submissive encounter. The gangrene that has rotted the body of the party has transformed it into some transnational Dorian Gray. Strutting and noble and handsome when preening before the cameras and the crowds, but putrid and pestilential when you see it as it is in the dull light of its polluted “new morning.”
I’m getting the feeling that the scales are being lifted from the eyes of more than a few million Democrats, myself. You can see it in the PUMA movement, random comments on blogs from Dems who are disgusted with Obama, and by the shift in the polls from Obama’s commanding lead, to the now front runners, McCain/Palin.
I don’t pretend that the Republican Party is perfect. It’s far from it. We’ve had our share of scandals, corruption, spinelessness, hypocrisy, and bad ideas. But the Republican Party still has a core rooted in faith, decency, and love of country.
I don’t see that in today’s Democrat Party. What I see are pols like Nancy Pelosi, and Kathleen Sebelius, who would throw their own church under the bus to stay faithful to the abortion lobby.
I see a Senator from Utah Nevada who would declare the Iraq war lost before we’re done fighting, for political expediency.
I see a Senator Rep. from Pennsylvania smearing U.S. Marines by calling them “cold blooded murderers”, before they were tried and exonerated.
I see a liberal media, and the Democratic ticket for POTUS smearing the Governor of Alaska in every way possible because they view her as a clear and present danger to their own political goals.
I could go on and on…but you get the picture, and it’s an ugly one.
These men and women are not pariahs in their party, (as they should be), but are the standard bearers.
