Perhaps we're catching a glimpse of that in the feud between Nancy Pelosi and the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez quartet.</span><br></p> <p>Everything about modern leftist ideology is extreme. It is extreme in substance, and its practitioners are self-absorbed, sanctimonious, uncompromising and often irrational. Intersectionality zealots are disciplining white feminists for their selfish advocacy. Biological males are dominating female athletic events courtesy of the transgender movement. Leftists of color and female gender are dissing old white men despite the men's long records of dedication to the sacred cause of progressivism. Some women of color are being told they are not black enough to lead the cause. And what about poor PETA? Where does that hapless group fit into this kaleidoscope of insanity these days?<p>Updated: Fri Jul 12, 2019</p> cca974e8a4b71612fd617441401388a9 Making America Great -- for All Americans for 06/28/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/06/19/making-america-great-for-all-americans Fri, 28 Jun 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>I know I'm not the only Trump supporter who is tired of progressives maliciously accusing President Trump and his supporters of racism.

All three claims are absurd on their face and, if heard by an impartial tribunal, will be rejected.</p> <p>Democrats are pounding their chests in fake indignation that Barr lied in his summary of Mueller's report, but in all particulars, his summary tracked with the report, which Mueller affirmed.

Leftists' position has always been morally bankrupt and deceitful.</p> <p>I am old enough to remember when Barack Obama, in the 2008 presidential campaign, vehemently denied that he had supported infanticide while in the Illinois Senate. Fact-checkers and other Obama defenders came out of the woodwork to defend Obama's moral integrity. What were those facts?</p> <p>Well, in 2001, Obama voted against Illinois' Born-Alive Infants Protection Act in committee, which would have required immediate medical care for any child born as a result of a failed abortion. He even gave a floor speech opposing the bill. But he voted "present" on the actual bill once it passed out of committee. The Illinois Senate passed the bill, but the Illinois House killed it. In 2002, Obama not only voted against the bill in committee and spoke against it on the Illinois Senate floor but also voted "no" on the bill. In 2003, Obama voted against another version of the bill. During the 2008 presidential campaign, Obama ran from this record and even accused Republicans of lying about it. Only after substantial blowback was he forced to issue a statement acknowledging he had earlier misstated his position on the bill.<p>Updated: Fri Mar 01, 2019</p> 982638e2b6163596f1c17603b78facb4 Kudos to Chris Pratt for 02/22/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/02/19/kudos-to-chris-pratt Fri, 22 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>How often have we seen Hollywood celebrities praised as courageous for "coming out" and admitting they're gay? Isn't it far more courageous for people to profess their Christian faith?</p> <p>Hollywood is not a tolerant city. Dominated by activist leftists, it is a culture hostile to dissenting views. We see it in its work product. Most movies and television shows are laced with political messages and politically correct symbolism. The heroes almost always are liberal and promote "progressive" values and causes, and conservatives are depicted as morally degenerate hayseeds or villains. Christians are especially singled out as backward, close-minded crackpots. Sure, there are notable exceptions, such as the TV series "Blue Bloods," which involves a traditional Catholic family of cops that meets weekly for dinner with prayer and conversation that promotes biblical virtues.<p>Updated: Fri Feb 22, 2019</p>
