The Escalator To The Cliff

... and over into the abyss!

I'm a bit pressed for time today, so I'll leave you with two things that juxtaposed nicely for me today. First is this tidbit from a Rich Lowry piece.
Beto O’Rourke — the losing Texas candidate for the US Senate who bootstrapped his way into becoming a losing presidential candidate — had a message for refugees who had come to America: Your new country is a hellhole.

The former congressman told a roundtable of refugees and immigrants in Nashville last week: “This country was founded on white supremacy. And every single structure that we have in this country still reflects the legacy of slavery and segregation and Jim Crow and suppression.”
I haven't seen anyone on the left disavowing him or his primary opponents using the stupidity of it to attack him, so I'm guessing they all pretty much agree. That leads me to these tweets from Richard Fernandez, aka Wretchard the Cat.
To me, it looks like the machine is out of control. The rate at which accusations of racism are flying is getting faster and faster every day. There's no one on the left trying to rein it in, they're all either keeping their mouths shut or rushing to join in the, err, fun.

This isn't going to end well.

Here are some of the things we can expect if we keep going this way.
