I came across a post on Facebook yesterday that self righteously castigated “silly liberals who supposedly rely on the Democratic Party and the Mueller report to extract the country from the Trumpian fix that it is now in. Below is my reply:.

Silly liberals, and especially liberal women, were one of the main backbones of last fall’s election victory. I saw that here, but it was much the same in many cds across the country. I wish the left had made a contribution of that magnitude. What is more we can only hope that liberals, women and men, do much the same next year. Bashing liberals has been a cottage industry on the left since the sixties. While it made little sense then, it is completely wrongheaded now, given what we are up against. In the times in which we live, an accent on modesty and unity would serve us far better than self defeating broadsides.
