American Consequences - November 2020

The Dems' Civil War

All this as fellow Squad member Congresswoman Talib accuses centrist Democrats in her party of trying to “silence” districts and representatives like her... “Me not being able to speak on behalf of many neighbors right now, many

It’s wrong... It’s highly unfortunate since anyone who believes in our Constitution should believe in the freedom of every American expressing their thoughts. Nonetheless, one thing is quite clear... The alignment of the Never-Trumpers and the progressive extremists, in this case, proves that politics makes for strange bedfellows. Power Gap Meanwhile, the Squad’s attempt to wrestle control from the Center Left could get ugly. While I applaud the group’s ability to express itself – it is their right as Americans to do so – the extremists’ continued presence could prove to have a negative effect on the Democratic party and the country before it’s eventually pushed aside (which is inevitable). That’s the realist in me... the realist who believes in America and believes in our ability to make the right decisions. Then again, given the insanity of this moment – who knows?

However, as much as Talib and others in the progressive wing have a right to their opinion – so do 71 million other individuals who voted for President Trump. And yet... it’s a chief Squad member championing the blacklist. Meanwhile, other extremists in the Democratic Party, including former members of the Buttigieg campaign operation, have become advocates for a group of Never- Trumpers called the “Trump Accountability Project.” It aims at preventing anyone who worked in the Trump administration from receiving future employment. The effort is the brainchild of The Lincoln Project, which was founded by Never-Trumper Republican strategists. It may be their attempt at trying to stay relevant in a post-Trump world run by the Biden camp.
