Feminist Prof: Democrats Are Engaged In ‘Nationwide Orgy Of Rage And Spite’ Over Trump

Camille Paglia’s politics are pretty far left but she accepts the fact that Trump won the election. She also seems to completely understand why Trump won.

In a recent interview, she trashed the Democratic Party for their infantile behavior since the election.

From the Weekly Standard:

Had Hillary won, everyone would have expected disappointed Trump voters to show a modicum of respect for the electoral results as well as for the historic ceremony of the inauguration, during which former combatants momentarily unite to pay homage to the peaceful transition of power in our democracy. But that was not the reaction of a vast cadre of Democrats shocked by Trump’s win. In an abject failure of leadership that may be one of the most disgraceful episodes in the history of the modern Democratic party, Chuck Schumer, who had risen to become the Senate Democratic leader after the retirement of Harry Reid, asserted absolutely no moral authority as the party spun out of control in a nationwide orgy of rage and spite.

Nor were there statesmanlike words of caution and restraint from two seasoned politicians whom I have admired for decades and believe should have run for president long ago—Senator Dianne Feinstein and Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi. How do Democrats imagine they can ever expand their electoral support if they go on and on in this self-destructive way, impugning half the nation as vile racists and homophobes?

Paglia is absolutely right.

To make matters worse, Democrats have shown no signs of stopping any of this. They have nothing to offer the American people but anti-Trump rage.
