Democrats: The New Fundamentalists

Camille Paglia (feminist, Democrat, Obama supporter), writing in Salon:

The witch-trial hysteria of the past two incendiary weeks unfortunately reveals a disturbing trend in the Democratic Party, which has worsened over the past decade. Democrats are quick to attack the religiosity of Republicans, but Democratic ideology itself seems to have become a secular substitute religion. Since when did Democrats become so judgmental and intolerant? . . .

The one fundamental precept that Democrats must stand for is independent thought and speech. When they become baying bloodhounds of rigid dogma, Democrats have committed political suicide.

Republicans’ wildly enthusiastic support for Sarah Palin runs the risk of turning into a cult. But I applaud her candidacy if for no other reason than it exposes the ugly intolerance of the Left for what it is.

  1. Interesting analysis. Thanks!

    For me the big issue is:
    Palin is Pro-War! She calls it “a task from God.”
    This mixing of God and war I find very sad.
    And it’s costing us Hundreds of Billions of Dollars.
