Here’s my column from Real Clear Politics this morning. I think it does a good job of dissecting progressive hypocrisy — and progressive power. Let me know what you think.
Dems Decry Polarization (When They Aren’t Promoting It)
By Frank Miele
Democrat Pam Keith, who ran unsuccessfully in primaries for both U.S. Senate and U.S. House seats in Florida the last couple of years, hasn’t broken through in the way that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, for instance, has done, but she is just as dangerous for what she reveals about the radical path the Democratic Party is traveling.
Keith is the proverbial wolf in sheep’s clothing. On the home page of her campaign website, electpamkeith.com, she claims that “polarization is the problem” — a comfortable-sounding bit of pabulum that will lull most voters into a deep sleep. She goes on to emphasize that she is warning against polarization “between the political left and right, and between the private and public sectors. Government is not the enemy of business, and left is not the enemy of right.”
Sounds great, right? Makes you think that, as a well-meaning “moderate,” you can get behind this candidate and send a message that things need to go back to the way they used to be — to a “kinder, gentler nation,” if you will.
But is that really what you would be getting if you elect a Pam Keith to Congress (or any other public office)? Hmm, maybe not. On Dec. 6, she sent a tweet out in response to the “voter fraud” complaint in North Carolina raised by Bloomberg News reporter Sahil Kapur:
“Sahil: don’t you get it yet? The GOP deep down doesn’t believe black people should be able to vote AT ALL! That’s why disenfranchising them is not only NOT a problem, it’s a top priority GOAL!”
I had to pinch myself to make sure I had not been dreaming when I read that example of how “the left is not the enemy of the right,” and I even looked for the blue-and-white checkmark next to her name to prove it was the verified Twitter account of the former Senate and House candidate, and not that of some dirty trickster. Yep, sure enough, it was Pam Keith.
Can anyone tell me how this libelous smear against Republicans is any different than the vile lies used to foment hatred against the Jews in Nazi Germany?
