Yesterday, in a post about authoritarianism on the left, I recalled the old liberal saying, “friends don’t let friends vote Republican.” In America, no one, friend or foe, can stop us from voting how we please. But liberals were saying, perhaps partially tongue-in-cheek, that friends should do what it takes to keep their friends in the Democrat fold.
My post discussed the case of Alan Dershowitz. He doesn’t want to vote Republican, he just wants to point out certain instances of unfairness in the investigation of President Trump — unfairness of the sort that runs contrary to the civil libertarian tenets Dershowitz has made a great career upholding.
For this, it appears, former friends are shunning him. Friends don’t let friends speak in favor of the civil liberties of a hated Republican.
In the same vein, comes a Mother’s Day ad (see below) produced by leftist billionaire Tom Steyer. The ad is based on a theme sometimes used in public service ads regarding youth drug addition — a mother points out early warning signs (stealing, the wrong friends, etc.) and advises parents to talk to their child about narcotics before it’s too late.
Thus, one of our two major political parties is treated as the equivalent of narcotics addiction — either a deadly personal failing or a deadly mental disease, take your pick. And parents aren’t just urged not to let their kids be Republicans, they’re instructed to view them as sick, or in crisis, if they are.
