• Moderates, What Moderates? Dem Prez Candidates All Leftists …

    Surge Summary: There is much talk about the “moderate” Democrats who are running for the presidency. Anyone like to point out exactly who those “moderates” are among this crowd of undeniable Leftists?

    A few post-New Hampshire headlines caught my attention recently.  (Herehere and here.)  The common theme is that the “moderate” candidates in the Democrat primary are dividing the vote and allowing Sanders to prevail.

    This is utter nonsense.  There are no “moderates” in this field.  I know I have written about this before, but it cannot be stressed enough.

    As we saw in the last Democrat debate, all the candidates (save one) are comfortable with the “socialist” label. They are all pro-abortion, open borders, big government extremists.  And, please, do not take my word for it.

    One news outlet analyzed Joe Biden’s platform and wrote this:

    “The 2020 Democratic frontrunner’s emerging policy agenda is anything but moderate. . . Biden has proposed ideas more ambitious and liberal than policies supported by Hillary Clinton in the 2016 campaign.”

    The Washington Post editorial board recently stated, “No, Pete Buttigieg and Joe Biden are not ‘centrists.'”  The Post wrote that the narrative of a left/center split in the race was “false.”

    It noted that Pete Buttigieg had “expressed sympathy” for Bernie Sanders’s policy goals, and concluded by observing that, “Every major Democratic candidate is running on an agenda to the left of Mr. Obama’s.”

    And the left-wing outlet Axios declared, “Democratic ‘Moderates’ Are Liberal As Ever,” adding:

    “Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg are considered the leading 2020 Democratic moderates, but even they have taken positions to the left of Barack Obama. . . The fact that they’re called centrists now in the media shows how much the Democratic Party has shifted.”

    Please share this message with all your friends and family members!  Don’t let them fall for the fake news that any of the Democrat contenders are “moderates.”
