It’s over. American traditions are vanishing. Polls say so.
Gallup found that the percentage of us identified as “social liberals” now equals that of “social conservatives.” Some pollsters say the ideological shift is “sudden” and “unexpected.” Unbelievably, we observe the passing social scene becoming weirder by the day—marriage and sexuality, for example, being whatever someone wants them to be; like the Mad Hatter with Alice in Wonderland telling her words mean whatever he says they mean.
Self identification, however, is suspect. In these times people don’t seem to know who or even what they are. Today’s younger generations don’t know an ideology from an i-phone—and couldn’t care less while they can “text” Twitter and Facebook and seed their intimate, pathetic little lives in Clouds somewhere.
Leftist opinion writer, Dana Milbank, gleefully reports that Gallup polling shows America takes the left road, once less traveled by traditional (conservative) Americans, toward a more permissive attitude on “out-of-wedlock birth, divorce, stem-cell research, suicide, abortion and even polygamy.” The gorilla glue that once held our society together is being monkeyed up.
New York Post writer Kyle Smith (no relation) also notes the “leftward turn in American culture…a huge increase (from the last decade) in support for gay marriage, legalized marijuana and single parenthood.” These changes, he writes, favor Democrats, as does “increasing ethnic diversity.” Hyphenated residents will win the political day, they hope.
Mr. Smith says Democrats always race out in front of parades that veer left. Record high (47 percent) Democrat voters identify with both socially and economically liberal issues; up 8 points since Obama was last elected.
Meanwhile, nasty and dangerous people are inheriting the earth. The increasingly ignorant masses (referred to also as “dumbasses”) are ripe for socialist/Marxist picking: useful idiots that dimwittedly support the destruction of their own culture.
The Democrat Party now has an avowed Socialist running against a liberal fascist. Hillary Clinton vows to take more earnings from American citizens; she wants to penalize American businesses with a $15 an hour “minimum wage.” She’s far left of Obama on this issue and his “extreme position” on entry and legal status for illegal aliens. She has said “it is time to end the era of mass incarceration.” This, writes Smith, will mark herself as “the first president to run overtly as a friend of the criminal class.”
Hillary will be a friend of anyone and anything that will bring her money and votes (even Bill). With little opposition from feckless Republicans, she uses fascist tactics to get elected and will stop at nothing to politically destroy this once “land of the free.”
If she gets control of the federal government, God save us, for this country will be doomed.
