The Mask Falls in Charlotte
Instead, their convention is being called Abortion-Palooza. Even wind-sock commentator David Brooks cannot help but notice:
As an overall global phenomenon, the defining characteristic of the left is statism. Here in America, however, the left—and their electoral vehicle of the Democratic Party—are also inextricably bound to the preservation and expansion of abortion on demand. As the convention in Charlotte has thus far demonstrated, this bond is an existential one.
What happens over the rest of the convention remains to be seen, but the first part of it has already revealed their true colors. The mask has slipped. The veil has fallen. They’re not even bothering to cloak themselves anymore.
But perhaps they should not be so confident, after the pasting we gave them in 2010.
