[Ed. – One more indication of the Democrats’ steady movement leftward]
What if one of America’s two great political parties changed completely and nobody noticed? We don’t need to guess, it happened. … [T]he Democratic Party has morphed into something that bears no resemblance to what it was even ten years ago. For many decades, that party was a coalition of liberal intellectuals, the urban poor and the country’s working class. That last group kept the Democrats grounded in the vicinity of reality, but those voters are long gone now. And with them, the Democrats connection to American itself. Consider the party’s evolution on borders. Bill Clinton ran twice against illegal immigration. He attacked it in his speeches and State of the Union Address. He understood that without borders you don’t have a country. He also knew and repeatedly said that a flood of low wage labor undermines the wages of American citizens because it does. Try making that point today. Keith Ellison will denounce you as a Nazi.
