The renowned conservative activist and lawyer Dan Backer has had enough of the Democrat party decay into a party run entirely by politicians who are essentially little more than whiny children.

As he notes in Townhall:

Then there’s the radical Left’s poster child—the notorious “AOC”—staging a protest at the Supreme Court and pretending to wear handcuffs in the process. Coddled by a liberal media that promotes “civil disobedience” when policy fights are lost and self-professed “experts” touting her 2024 chances, who can blame liberals like AOC? Even reasonable Democrats—the few who are left—turn a blind eye to the left-wing shenanigans that are making a mockery of the U.S. political system.

But that doesn’t make them right. For all intents and purposes, today’s Democrats are whiny, petulant children who cry when their toys are taken away. Liberalism in the 21st century is the pinnacle of self-indulgence. It is a political philosophy that rests on feelings rather than facts. Criticize today’s liberals, and you’re racist, homophobic, transphobic, and whatever else. Think differently, and you must be an Uncle Tom or a fascist. Dare to be pro-life, and you must be Hitler resurgent.

The liberal mindset is the equivalent of bad parenting. (Good) parents don’t tell their children to complain or make excuses if they lose; they tell them to learn from their mistakes, respect the competition, and try to beat it next time. When kids misbehave, parents are supposed to ignore or punish them. Coddling accomplishes nothing.

Yet Democrats act like children who deserve to be pampered and made to feel special. The more self-indulgent (see: AOC), the better. Even when it’s clear that Democrats are losing the political game, they don’t seem to care. When Republicans make a 47-point popularity jump among Hispanic voters (yes, 47 percent since 2018), racism must be the underlying reason. CNN headlines like “white supremacy, with a tan” remain a dime a dozen.

Backer ends his analysis by pointing out that the upcoming midterm elections aren’t just a contest between Republicans and Democrats , but between adults and children.

“Head of the nail” “Spot on” etc. For his exhibition common sense, 87,000 new Fed’l employees will be climbing over each other for the honor of auditing him.

I blame the schools these adult children attended. From participation trophies, to “everyone wins”, CRT and all the rest being taught. Personal responsibility is on life support as well.
