Wallace letter: Hypocrisy of the Left

I find it very interesting that Joan Ehrnstein advises Republicans to not “vote against your own self-interest” ... to use the Democratic Party’s talking point du jour. More telling is that Ehrnstein apparently feels that it’s only Republicans that engage in this behavior. Further, she points out that “The Republican of today is not your 1960s or 1970s Republican.”

I’d like to point out to Ehrnstein that your Democrat of today isn’t your 1960s or 1970s Democrat. No wait, apparently they are. It seems that a very violent and vocal faction of them are engaging in behavior reminiscent of the Weather Underground (President Obama’s mentor), the SDS and the SLA.

Before hurling too many stones she, and an array of others on the left, may want to take stock of their own glass house. The hypocrisy, and apparent blindness of my friends on the left, who seem to be suffering a bad case of TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) has reached epic proportions. The hatred directed at this one relatively insignificant footnote in history is bordering on insanity.

I’m very curious as to whether anyone has statistics showing a sharp increase in heart attack rates amongst “The Party of Tolerance.”
