A Democrat Once Said…

I know it’s hard to believe, but a Democrat – a quite progressive one for the time – once said this:

At the heart of that Western freedom and democracy is the belief that the individual man, the child of God, is the touchstone of value, and all society, groups, the state, exist for his benefit. Therefore the enlargement of liberty for individual human beings must be the supreme goal and the abiding practice of any Western society.

— Robert F. Kennedy

Yes, Robert Kennedy said this during his 1966 address to the students and faculty of he University of Capetown, South Africa. Of course, this was just a few weeks shy of 50 years ago and in the intervening decades the Democrats and their Liberal and Progressive adherents have degenerated to the point where the very mention of God or religion – except to deny the former and lambast the latter – is anathema to them.

No, no longer could or would a Democrat describe Man as the child of God.

So too during the Left’s fall from vestiges of Americanism it once had, did they decide to revile most forms of mention of the enlargement of liberty for individual human beings, demanding instead a collective ethical consciousness that places non-sexual individual liberty subservient to both the State and the collective.

They’re Not Transformative

That’s the thing; despite various claims over the years that creatures like Obama, Hillary, and Sanders are a new age in Politics and/or are somehow “Transformative,” they’re really just another set of tares poisoning the fertile fields of America. And the only which any of them are Transformative is that they, like those before them, want to transform America into a failed Socialist state.

Face it, the cartoon above is from a 1934 issue of the Chicago Tribune and yet, it could be used today with only cosmetic changes. The only thing that has – since Johnson’s term as POTUS – is the “color” of their rhetoric.
