The Left-liberal wing of American politics really is awful, as is shown by these three stories (with link to the whole column embedded in each headline):

Rep. Jayapal’s radical strategems fail (Dec. 28): Hard-left U.S. Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington state, who penned a nasty Washington Post column this week, should learn some things from West Virginia’s U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin and from the late, legendary Sens. Bob Dole and John McCain….

Jayapal, who leads the misnamed Congressional Progressive Caucus, spent most of the year pushing hard-line tactics in favor of the radical Build Back Better boondoggle that would spend the federal government into oblivion while giving major benefits to special interests.

Enough is enough. Once and for all, no government anywhere should condition its benefits or its judgments on the perceived race of a person. Moreover, even in the realm of private affairs, we all should stop obsessing about race and skin color. Making judgments on the basis of race is the very definition of racism, pure and simple — and taking actions based on racial judgments is racial discrimination. Racial discrimination, always and everywhere, is invidious….
