Here’s an interesting point of view from a committed political leftist, Senator Barbara Boxer of California, who was present at the Democrat state convention in Las Vegas a few weeks ago when things moved a little too far left for her comfort.
I take no schadenfreude from what happened to Ms. Boxer, or from our current political situation as a whole. Bernie Sanders supporters (they must be bare naked communists at heart) are causing some very ugly problems for the Trump and Clinton campaigns. Violence which disrupts our political process is not attractive and endearing for civilized human beings.
But, then again, who ever said that Karl Marx and Muhammad were civilized human beings? Not I.
Nonetheless, violence has been promised. I don’t think Mr. Sanders’ contingent is finished. I’m sure Mr. Obama has a few more aces up his sleeve to play before he is supposed to leave office. I hope Ms. Boxer is hanging on to her hat.
The nation seems just a little more like a powder keg with each passing week. Who, or what, will light the fuse?
