Tucker Carlson made an excellent point about today’s Democrats on his show this week.
He suggested that their demands for ideological purity make them seem like a religious cult.
Here’s a partial transcript via FOX News:
The Democratic Party is now a religious cult – and Biden and Pelosi don’t pass the purity test
After almost 200 years, the Democrats were a political party with conventional political goals. That’s no longer true. The Democratic Party is now a religious cult, with all that implies. Dissent has been banned. Anyone who questions the party’s leftward fringe is denounced as a racist heretic.
The party has descended into a purity spiral, and nobody is safe, not even the party’s own leaders. Take Nancy Pelosi, for example. She is the most left-wing Speaker of the House in the history of the United States. She has been a fire-breathing liberal for longer than, I don’t know, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been alive.
But none of that has been enough to save her. Ocasio-Cortez and a tiny group of House freshmen demand explicit socialism in this country right now. They want to open the borders, empty the prisons and take over the entire U.S. economy in the name of fighting climate change.
Now, Pelosi may agree with these goals, but she has contempt for their total ignorance of how laws are made. They’re against the democratic system itself, and Pelosi has expressed that contempt repeatedly in public.
