Chris Cillizza of CNN tried to claim that Republicans are at fault for the polarization in Congress, and Twitter took him to task for the claim.
The editor-at-large wrote that Republicans had swung more to the right than Democrats had swung to the left based on a report by the Pew Research Center.
“The technical term is ‘asymmetric polarization,'” wrote Cillizza. “It means that one political party is getting more partisan (or polarized) than the other — or that one side is moving closer to its ideological pole than the other.”
The study said Democrats in Congress had only grown marginally in their support for left-wing politics while Republicans had grown far more to the right.
“What those findings mean is that not only have Republicans moved faster and further to the ideological right than Democrats have gone to the left, but also that they have made the entirety of the House and Senate more conservative over the past 50 years,” Cillizza added.
Many on social media excoriated Cillizza’s claim and pointed out many examples where Democrats had abandoned positions that are now considered conservative.
“My dude, Obama was supporting traditional marriage in 2008 during his presidential campaign,” Noam Blum pointed out.
“Only because Democrats were liberal then & have grown more illiberal & leftist since,” responded Dan McLaughlin of National Review. “He really believes this s***. Ask yourself this: what did Ronald Reagan support compared to what the modern Republican Party supports. Now do the same for 1990s Bill Clinton and Democrats. The other side appears to have moved when you fall off the edge,” said columnist Derek Hunter.”Obama ran against gay marriage. His Veep promised repeatedly that he wouldn’t take away your guns. Bill Clinton said the era of big government was over, implemented Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, and signed the Defense of […]

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
