Precisely Darian. This party has morphed into a group of separatists, where Identity politics rules the day.
They always talk about "inclusiveness", yet they are always the ones to divide us up into our little cliques of individuals who have this grievance and that grievance.
They want to create factions everywhere as if were a tribal people who need to continuously walk on eggshells around each other, rather than just being "Americans", they want to inform us that this person is an "African-American", this other person is a "Jewish American". Another guy over here is a "Chinese American".
This person is a gay American. I had a discussion with my nephew who is an adult College Student and he's gay. He tried to throw this crap at me that I didn't understand his problems in life because he is a gay man. My response to him was that he certainly wouldn't get very far if he used his gay "identity" as a crutch, rather than just being a man and dealing with his problems like a man, rather than resorting to pity.
I find these Democrats of today to be repulsive in every way. As I've said a hundred times on this forum, their party has no resemblance whatsoever to the Democrat party of old. I look at my father's and mother's generation and it doesn't even resemble this gaggle of buffoons that run things today.
The Democrat party has made all facets of life virtually intolerable today. One has to worry about every word that comes out of his/her mouth to make sure that he/she isn't in the presence of a person who identifies with a particular "group", lest he/she offend that particular person.
At work now, people can no longer have even the most innocent of water cooler chats, w/o living in the fear that someone at work overheard them, and ran to human resources to report them.
I feel sorry for young men these days, when attempting to date a woman, they have to ask permission, and then have their date sign a consent form document that gives them the ability to move in for a goodnight kiss.
If they don't, they may have the cops or some special interest group knocking at their door the next day, to inform them that they need to show cause why they attempted to kiss their date and/or providing proof that the other party 'consented' to the invasion of his/her privacy.
What a wonderful society they are creating eh? They are essentially ruining it.
I'm just glad I don't belong to it !
