Popular conservative writer David Horowitz says that in the wake of Democrats’ defeat in the recent presidential election, they have opted to “double down” on the extreme ideas that kept them from retaining the White House, and remain unable to get out of their own way.
As reported by Newsmax, Horowitz made his comments on the “Politicking” cable-based television show hosted by Larry King.
“They lost an election. People have rejected all the things they're doubling down on,” said Horowitz.
He’s not wrong. Since the election, Democrats have been in a civil war, of sorts, with the strident voices of the party’s most progressive wing continuing to do what they can to shout down everyone else, including the moderates within.
Appearing with King in part to promote his latest book, Big Agenda: President Trump’s Plan to Save America, Horowitz was particularly critical of Democrats’ posture on the matter of public schools, pointedly reminding viewers that while representative politicians have been in charge of America’s largest cities for decades, students attending the schools located there continue to suffer because the party remains a slave to the teachers unions. According to Horowitz, the Democrats will back the broken public school system “to the death,” precisely because of its allegiance to the unions.
As for Trump, Horowitz declared on the show that he’s a “game changer,” saying, “Everything he's done he said he would do in the course of the campaign.”
Continuing, Horowitz said, “There is no other Republican who on national TV would look Hillary Clinton in the eye and say, ‘You're a liar and a crook’ even though she’s both? That's liberation.”
