Journalists who condemn you as “racist” for referring to the Chinese or Wuhancoronavirus. Men who swear they are women. A presidential primary contest between a perpetually enraged old communist and a corrupt, excruciatingly senile politician who lies constantly. Giddy legislators high-fiving each other after legalizing abortion at 40 weeks – which is to say, legalizing infanticide. A political party obsessed with eliminating America’s borders, protecting criminals and dismantling law enforcement.
Normal decent Americans increasingly describe today’s Democratic Party – and the far-left worldview that has possessed it – using terms like “madness,” “delusion” and “derangement.”
But there’s a much deeper, more illuminating and ultimately more useful way to look at what is cryptically known as “the left.”
Leftism is a religion.
