Paglia warns Democrats about ‘orgy of rage and spite’

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION - — Dou­glas Ernst

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.
