As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Decline of Western Civilization Part 327: DNC Chair Curses in Front of Children

Have a look at the beginning of this video. You can see DNC Chairman Tom Perez going on a profane rant with a child just a few feet away.

Below, he notes that a child is in the audience, and keeps right on cursing.

This is the Democratic Party today. Anything to win, anything that works, no matter the ethics or the appearance of it, because everything is to be subordinated to the larger goals. That is, for you Leninists out there, the means justify the ends.

Perez is also reflective of what years of leftist domination of the culture has given the country, starting with the free love, tradition-destroying ethic introduced in the 1960s. Without the discipline of a moral code, or even the recognition that any values are absolute, you have the deconstruction of society and the result that, for example, more than a quarter of American children are being raised in single-mother homes.

Ironically, the corrosion of the culture hurts the populations that liberals claim to care about most — women, minorities, and children. What they have done more than anything is give men the freedom to do whatever the hell they want.

Don’t worry, eight-year-olds don’t read White House Dossier, but they do attend speeches.

What Tom Perez is doing here, and that it’s the chairman of the Democrats and not the Republicans is no coincidence. It’s a symptom, and indeed a symbol, of the larger cultural problem inflicted upon us by liberals.

Video || College Kids Shutting Down Speech

The Washington Free Beacon has a good roundup of recent histrionics from leftist college kids, who have learned that the earth turns around them and their ideas, which cannot be challenged, and that other points of view are so illegitimate that they must be shut down.

Some of this is amusing, but ultimately, it’s not funny. Children are being taught political correctness in the public schools, and the strictures against any kind of teasing, bullying, or negative attitudes toward any cultural or ideological approaches not favored by the left is instructing students that the First Amendment is garbage on parchment. If they even know what the First Amendment is.

One of the values of electing President Trump was that he helped undermine political correctness. Now, to be sure, I don’t approve of some of the things he said, and if he acted on some of those things, its abhorrent. But the president’s willingness to speak directly is a helpful antidote to the speech totalitarianism we now face.

DWS: Such a Classy Gal

I received an email Saturday afternoon from the Chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

She decided to lower the bar for me. The title? “This really pisses me off, Keith.”

She was so pissed off, she asked me for $3:

Republicans in Congress are dead-set on rolling back the progress that Democrats like you and I have worked so hard to achieve. They’ve already said that they’re going to try to repeal Obamacare, after more than 50 unsuccessful attempts (and two Supreme Court rulings in the law’s favor). They want to completely defund Planned Parenthood, an organization that provides necessary health services to women across the country. And if they don’t get their way, they’re just fine with shutting down the government — again!

I’m going to be frank: That pisses me off. As a woman, a mother, and a cancer survivor, I say that we can’t stand for this kind of irresponsible behavior — and it’s exactly what we’ll see more of if Republicans retain their majority in 2016. The American people deserve better.

Well, with the culture so coarsened, I guess, what difference does it make that our political leaders intentionally – as opposed to in a moment of frustration – discuss what is “pissing them off.”

How long before President Obama drops the F-Bomb and asks for five bucks? Not long, perhaps.
