    Meh. Obviously, yeah. But there’s differences I think.

    The Bernie Sanders (and now AOC) wing of the left want to vote to take your money and spend it elsewhere in the name of equality, social safety net, greater good, yada yada. Say what we will about them, but they’re centered on a clear and predictable ideology.

    There’s another brand of leftism emerging in recent years that’s totally untethered to ideology. There is no grand design with a socialist promise of equality or greater good. The plan is destruction of ideas, institutions and people. Force for the sake of force and violence for the sake of violence — whether it’s mob rule in the street or jack booted thugs at your doorstep. There’s no redemption. There’s no hope. It’s politics of submission — the boot stomping on the human face forever. You see it in cancel culture. You see it in BLM and antifa. And I think shades of it show up now in mainstream politicians, particularly Beto when he’s desperate for attention.

    And it’s this type of nihilism, even more so than socialism, that Orwell warned about.

    And everything that you’ve always wanted to be?

    I get a throbbing erection whenever libs try to **** with religious freedom.

    I threw a massive midnight monkey wrench into their maleficent machinations.

    Rest assured, Beto will not win.

    Dude, my church, Episcopalian has always embraced the gay community. The head of the church is a lesbian. So, I don’t (honestly) recall scoffing at the
    notion.

    Which is why I’ll always be National Hero Mr. 63.

    I personally ended the national debate - temporarily - as to whether or not Catholic Charities can apply religious freedom to how they operate.

    and my daughters and I have been paying for it ever since.
