Dems let slip the dogs of race-war, now they’re getting bitten

Revolutions always end up eating their own and swords have two edges. Opportunistic politicians who weaponise fanatics end up getting hauled off to the guillotines and bonfires themselves.

The Democrats cried havoc and let slip the dogs of race war. For a while, all was going to plan, as their attack dogs attacked their intended targets. But now the rabid mongrels are turning on their masters. Quote:

Having unleashed race, gender, sexual orientation and class as the defining issues of American politics, these furies are now consuming their authors. End of quote.

Still, it shows how pathetically skewed the Dems? priorities are, that they are demanding creepy Ralph Northam resign over a teenage prank from over three decades ago, but are perfectly fine with him advocating infanticide. Quote:

Every national Democrat of note is demanding that Virginia Governor Ralph Northam resign for appearing in blackface in 1984 and for offering different explanations for an offensive photo on his medical college yearbook page. But Mr Northam is refusing to go.

A second woman has now accused Virginia Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax of rape, this time at Duke University in 2000.

Another woman has accused Mr Fairfax of raping her at the Democratic National Convention in 2004?Meanwhile, Attorney General Mark Herring, next in line for Governor if both Messrs Northam and Fairfax resign, also appeared in blackface in the 1980s?Imagine the cognitive Democratic dissonance if Mr Fairfax, who is black, is forced to resign because of unproved accusations of sexual assault that he denies, while the two white men survive despite racial offences that they admit. End of quote.

Turns out the Dems will forgive their white massas for all kinds of racial sins, though. Quote:

If Democrats think these furies will be confined to Virginia, look at Elizabeth Warren as she launches her presidential campaign.

It turns out she wrote ?American Indian? on her 1986 registration card for the Texas legal bar ? confirmation that she had claimed Native American ancestry, perhaps to assist her career, despite earlier denials. End of quote.

But, whilst it?s tempting to watch in satisfaction as the left gets torn about by its own pack-hounds, important principles are at stake. Quote:

When this poison was directed at Republicans, we lamented how this wasn?t good for America. Now that the attacks are on Democrats, we say the same: This is no good for the country or the Democratic Party.

Sexual assault deserves to be punished, but the accused also deserve legal and political due process. The evidence or lack of it should matter.

A photo with men in blackface and KKK garb is offensive, but the mistakes of youth for politicians who have since shown zero evidence of racial bias deserve some perspective. Politics would be better with a little forbearance in judging adults solely by their worst moments from college. End of quote.

Having said that, the WSJ?s proposed solution is little short of bizarre, or at best amnesiac. Quote:

Where?s Barack Obama when Democrats need him??Mr Obama [is] the only Democrat with the personal and political standing to explain the perils of using race and gender as all-purpose, indiscriminate political weapons. End of quote.

You have to be kidding! Obama is the unscrupulous creep who unleashed this inquisitorial frenzy in the first place. From using ?racism!? accusations to defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2008 primaries, to endlessly meddling in racially-charged incidents like Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, Obama was a race-baiter extraordinaire who deliberately set the United States afire, purely to make himself king of the ashes.
