The Moral Calculus of the Left

, ,

Katha Pollitt, at The Nation, says:

I would vote for Joe Biden if he boiled babies and ate them. He wasn’t my candidate, but taking back the White House is that important. Four more years of Trump will replace what remains of our democracy with unchecked rule by kleptocrats, fascists, religious fanatics, gun nuts, and know-nothings. The environment? Education? Public health? The rights of voters, workers, immigrants, people of color, and yes, women? Forget them. And not just for the next four years: A Trump victory will lock down the courts for decades. I cannot believe that a rational person can grasp the disaster that is Donald Trump and withhold their support from Biden because of Tara Reade.

Interesting. Ms. Pollitt doesn’t believe in democracy. The whole point of democracy is that if people decide they made a mistake they can fix it. One of the great advantages of our Republic and it’s checks and balances is to slow things down so that democracy can work. If Trump is as dangerous as Ms. Pollitt says, democracy will fix it. Sadly, she has no faith in democracy and would much rather impose her own agenda on others and control their lives. It must be comforting to be an elitist. It means you are so much smarter than the “norms” that you can justify any atrocity.

Well, kudos to Ms. Pollitt for her honesty and candor. Demerits though for getting the facts about Trump and his administration’s effect on our nation so dreadfully wrong.
