     Dems are the more extreme and a danger to the US.  The Democratic Party’s so-called “moderates” have had it with Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and other members of the Squad. These “centrists” are laboring to separate themselves semantically from these neo-Marxists, although their differences end there.

     These “middle-of-the road” Democrats call themselves “normal.” If they keep parroting that word, their feathers will turn green. “If you want a Senator who runs as a Socialist, feeds the GOP attack ads, & didn’t help with infrastructure, I’M NOT YOUR GUY,” Rep. Conor Lamb of Pennsylvania recently pleaded via Twitter. I’m a normal Democrat who supports jobs & wins elections.”  Rep. Donald McEachin of Virginia said voters want to “return to normal as quickly as possible.”

  • Speaking about President Joe Biden, Rep. Abigail Spanberger of Virginia said, ”Nobody elected him to be FDR. They elected him to be normal and stop the chaos.”
  • “People are fatigued and confused, and they want to get back to their normal lives,” observed state Sen. Loretta Weinberg of New Jersey.
  • Democratic campaign operative Howard Wolfson prescribed a “course correction” and embrace of “bipartisan normalcy.”

     When these allegedly moderate Democrats call themselves “normal,” this suggests that those further Left are abnormal. How insulting! The Squad should demand an immediate apology. Indeed, they are the Democrats’ new normal. The American Conservative Union’s recently modernized Web site makes it a snap to review senators’ and House members’ votes clear back to 1972. Running from 0 for most liberal to most conservative at 100, the ideological spectrum cleaves into thirds: left (0 to 33), middle (34 to 66) and right (67 to 100). Moderate Democrats should inhabit this center slice.
