The Democrat civil war going on behind their demonstrations

Kimberley Ross:
The Democrats have it good right now.

Don’t get me wrong; they are in utter turmoil because they hate their president and find themselves in the minority in D.C. However, they have a convenient, two-fold smokescreen: President Donald J. Trump, and the mainstream media.

With those barriers in place, they are free to go to war with each other, all while keeping it mostly under wraps. They’re confident that the president, who gets enough press on his own, will help keep the spotlight off of them. The media, obsessed with fake news and feeling sudden inspiration to pursue “journalistic integrity”, is only happy to comply.

This leaves the Left with enough cover to quietly implode. They can’t decide where to focus their hatred first. On Republicans for choosing Trump, or on themselves for selecting Hillary. That’s quite a tough call.

Ross has much more on the subject.

Jim Geraghty has more on this fight within the Democrat party:
The coming wave of progressive primary challengers is good news for Republicans.

‘Democratic politicians in red states who fail to fight strongly against Trump and seize the mantle of economic populism won’t inspire people to vote — and they will lose the general election in 2018,” warned Adam Green, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee in a recent press release.

If Green and his ilk have their way, Democrats who fail to heed the populism of the moment will be in for a rude surprise next year. A new progressive group has already sprung up with the intent of forcing Democrats to hold the line, threateningly named “We Will Replace You.” The group seems set on calling out every perceived Democratic capitulation to President Trump, including the bipartisan confirmation of Mike Pompeo as CIA director and statements from Dick Durbin, Claire McCaskill, and Jon Tester proclaiming that Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch deserves “a fair shake.” It has promised “primary challenges to Democratic collaborators and enablers of Trump.”
...
The Democrats pursuit of ideological purity is likely to further weaken the party and make it easier for Republicans to pick up seats.
