Prior to President Clintons election both parties ran on issues. Each claiming they would be better at implementing these issues than the other. Since then the Democrats have learned they cannot win on issues so they have started to run on personally destroying there opponents.
“The politics of personal destruction” is a liberal tactic of demonizing the opposition. The term was made popular by President Bill Clinton during his impeachment trial in the 1990s. Democrats tried it to a certain degree on President Reagan but failed.
Then the lying started and the charge of racist emerged as the Democrats favorite label to attack anyone who opposed their agenda.
Their mantra has become, “A lie is as good as the truth as long as you get someone to believe it.”
Democrats started with what is called Politically Correct Speech then moved into intimidation using the Marxist group Antifa as their version of German brown shirts. Now the Cancel culture. The media picks out a target with charges of racism; then the hackers power up their “Bots”. Sending messages to their targets employer threatening to destroy them.
FEE President Emeritus Lawrence W. Reed explained. “They are precisely the kind of people who elevate power over persuasion, force over cooperation. Government, possessing by definition a legal and political monopoly of the use of force, attracts them just as surely as dung draws flies.”
If I believed in reincarnation I could reasonably believe that Democrats are reincarnated Marxist and Nazi.
