Have you heard about the latest intellectual “awakening” that’s being led by a brand new “progressive” movement called Democracy Awakening? Oh, it’s a real thrill, loaded with a host of bold, fresh ideas that’ll make you downright grateful for the fact that such brilliant folks are looking out for you. Ideas like these:

  • repealing all Voter ID laws, on the premise that they’re nothing more than racist schemes designed to disenfranchise nonwhite minorities;
  • overhauling every facet of the criminal-justice system—police, prosecutors, courts, and prisons—on grounds that they are currently infested with racism and discrimination against blacks and Hispanics;
  • supporting the agendas of the Black Lives Matter movement, which detects white racism lurking around every corner and hiding under every rock;
  • permitting Washington, DC to have representation in the U.S. House, Senate, and Electoral College, so as to further empower the Democratic Party;
  • implementing publicly funded elections, thereby preventing citizens and corporations from donating money to the political candidates of their choice;
  • striking a blow to the military-industrial complex” by gutting the national defense budget and redirecting those dollars to a bloated welfare state; and
  • depriving Americans of their Second Amendment right to bear arms.

What’s that you say? You’ve heard all this before, a thousand times, from the mouths of a thousand left-wing activists and political candidates seeking to erode American liberties?
