Paglia warns Democrats about ‘orgy of rage and spite’
Renowned feminist Camille Paglia says the Democratic Party’s leaders are in “a nationwide orgy of rage and spite” that prevents them from connecting with millions of potential voters.
In a wide-ranging Weekly Standard interview published Thursday, Ms. Paglia, who supported Sen. Bernard Sanders in the 2016 primary election, said Democrats are widening an unnecessary political chasm with voters.
“Chuck Schumer … asserted absolutely no moral authority as the party spun out of control in a nationwide orgy of rage and spite,” she said. “Nor were there statesmanlike words of caution and restraint from two seasoned politicians whom I have admired for decades and believe should have run for president long ago — Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi.
“How do Democrats imagine
they can ever expand their electoral support if they go on and on in this self-destructive way, impugning half the nation as vile racists and homophobes?” she said.
