Guilty by Reason of Insanity: Sebastian Gorka with David Limbaugh

Sebastian Gorka is joined by David Limbaugh to discuss his new Regnery book “Guilty by Reason of Insanity,” which delves into how far-gone the Left truly is, and in particular how they have weaponized race relations for Balkanizing America. They also talk about the GOP’s failure to adequately fight back against the Left in the Culture War for the longest time.

Lanhee Chen: The Ascendancy of the Socialist Left

A passing of the torch happened last weekend, when one progressive icon—Bernie Sanders—accepted an endorsement of his campaign from another progressive icon, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Her endorsement came as no surprise to political observers, but heralded an important moment for the ascendancy of far-left wing politics within the Democratic Party. No longer can socialist policy positions be considered the fringes of the American left. Indeed, the movement led by Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez isn’t merely a minor blip in history to be dismissed with the next political cycle. It is the pathway down which the Democrats will take their politics, policymaking, and rhetoric in the years to come.

The ascendancy of the socialist left is a gift to President Trump and Republicans in Congress, who will run as defenders of a free-enterprise system that—while not perfect—has been the linchpin of American prosperity for generations. That’s an electoral fight that will be tough for Democrats to win.

Jerry Bowyer: After El Paso, After Dayton

Recently our nation was traumatized by two mass shootings. Predictably, these acts of evil were immediately ransacked by media commentators, politicians and candidates in search of political ammunition. Left-of-center media started in immediately after the El Paso massacre, blaming President Trump and Fox News. But in less than 24 hours, another mass shooting occurred in Ohio which appears to have been committed by someone of the Left, and of course, conservative media was quick to point that out.

Let me suggest that instead of using this to point the finger at hyperbolic rhetoric from the “other side,” we’d do well it to point the finger at hyperbolic rhetoric in general.

You don’t have to look too long at cable news and social media to see our cultural affinity for overheated rhetoric.

Extremism mixed with mental illness is a toxic, and even lethal cocktail.

Let’s let the measured rhetoric start with us.

Dan Proft: Hate Has a Home on the Left

If you have to pass a resolution saying we, in the House, won’t tolerate anti-Semitism, what does that say about what you, in the House, have really been tolerating?

Even more astounding than the panoply of vile statements that earned Rep. Ilhan Omar an endorsement from the KKK’s David Duke is the enabling of anti-Semitism by Jewish members of Congress.

The whole Omar affair is illustrative of identity politics. The pursuit of political power demands some cultural Marxists create an identity while others abandon theirs. The key is everyone plays nice on the noxious, intersectional playground.

So Rachel Dolezal is black. Caitlyn/Bruce Jenner is a woman. And Rep. Jan Schakowsky is an apologist for anti-Semitism who chalks up Omar’s intemperance to a cultural difference suggesting that Omar didn’t say what she said and didn’t mean what she meant.

It turns out hate does have a home on the Left.
