• The Democratic — Socialist — Party Debate and Related Trouble in the Party

    Surge Summary: Chaos in the Democratic presidential field continues: few of the candidates were willing to aggressively challenge the party’s increasing socialistic leanings in Friday’s debate; Pete Buttigieg is anything but a moderate; Joe Biden’s odd behavior continues.

    There were several revealing moments during Friday night’s Democrat presidential debate in New Hampshire.

    To his credit, George Stephanopoulos pressed the candidates about whether they had any concerns with the Democrat Party being identified by Bernie Sanders and socialism.  Only one candidate, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, expressed any reservation at all about the socialist stigma.  The other candidates were too afraid of alienating the party’s socialist base.

    That didn’t sit well with liberal MSNBC host Chris Matthews, who slammed Sanders for his past support of communist regimes, and noted that socialism “isn’t free” and “doesn’t work.”

    Meanwhile, there’s been talk in recent days that former Mayor Pete Buttigieg is emerging as a “moderate” alternative to Sanders.  Only in this leftist arena could he possibly be considered a moderate!

    Buttigieg is all in on the left’s “fundamental transformation of America.”  He wants to abolish the Electoral College.  He has also called for a court-packing scheme that would add another six left-wing ideologues to the Supreme Court, expanding it to 15 justices, making him more radical than Ruth Bader Ginsburg!

    By the way, Buttigieg once praised Bernie Sanders as “outstanding and inspiring” for having the “courage” to identify as a “socialist.”

    Abortion was another big topic at Friday’s debate.  Joe Biden and others promised to appoint only pro-abortion judges.  All the candidates support late-term abortions performed on innocent unborn babies, and yet they all opposed taking out Iranian terrorist Qassem Soleimani.  Think about that!

    Incredibly, Buttigieg has even used his faith to suggest that life beings at first breath.  Talk about unscientific!  Any biology textbook will tell you that life begins at conception.  What are doctors operating on in utero before birth, if not a human life?  Buttigieg’s defense of third trimester abortion is a breathtaking distortion of science and faith.

    In other news, it seems like Joe Biden has given up trying to win New Hampshire.  He insulted another voter, this time using another of his throwback phrases.

    Not long ago, Biden had millennials rushing to Google to learn the meaning of “malarkey.”  He did it again yesterday when a woman questioned his electability after his poor showing in Iowa.  Biden bizarrely responded by calling her, “a lying dog-faced pony soldier.”

    No one really knows what he meant by that.  Biden told reporters it was a line from a John Wayne movie, but so far no one has been able to verify that.
