Conservative radio host Michael Reagan, the eldest son of Ronald Reagan, penned an op-ed for Townhall Magazine on Saturday decrying the present state of the Democratic Party — particularly that it has become “the party of evil”, filled with bigots and bent on destruction.
Along with their “parrots and lapdogs in the liberal media,” Democrats endlessly accuse those on the right of being “racists, sexists and homophobes,” Reagan wrote.
But what of the left?
Reagan pointed to an SNL skit in which Senator Lindsey Graham was mocked as being gay and a CNN panel during which an African American contributor referred to Kanye West as President Trump’s “token Negro” as proof that the Democratic Party is nothing but thinly-disguised racist homophobes.
Moving on, the former president’s son called out Democrats for refusing to accept that protests against the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh constituted a mob:
> Tucker Carlson, who said the mindless anti-Kavanaugh protesters banging on the Supreme Court's doors last week reminded him of zombies from the Netflix series "The Walking Dead," correctly called them a "mob."
> But CNN and their liberal ilk disagreed.
> As far as they are concerned, only right-wingers can become a dangerous mob - like the angry Tea Party activists who showed up and shouted at political meetings back in 2010.
Reagan said that “Creepy Antifa kids disrupting traffic and harassing old folks in Portland” and “gangs of progressive screamers showing up in restaurants to publicly harass Republican officials or politicians” are not “mobs” by Democrats’ definition.
What are they?
> They're principled, youthful protestors trying to build a kinder, gentler, socialist world for every American who's not rich enough to buy their own car.
All of this is what makes the Democratic Party, as it is currently constituted, an evil group of Americans, according to Reagan.
> It's not the new Supreme Court Justice who's evil.
> It's the Democrat Party and the nasty "progressives" who've taken it over and are willing to say or do anything or destroy anyone to bring down President Trump.
Nowhere in the op-ed did Reagan mention Trump’s separating of migrant children from their parents at the border, his affinity for brutal dictators, or his “many sides” response to Charlottesville, Virginia.
Nor did he raise the issue of Vice President Mike Pence’s opposition to the LGBT community, or Congress’ desire to take away the healthcare of millions of Americans.
Still, Reagan insists it is the Democrats who are “evil” and dangerous for America.
> The Democrat Party is no longer the Party of FDR. It's the party of destruction.
