According to TheNewYorkPost:
Elon Musk sparked a firestorm this week by tweeting a meme that calls out the radical drift of left-wing politics in America, showing how the rise of the ultra-left has made people like him suddenly seem right-of-center though their views haven’t changed.
Why the furor? Because the meme is right. As he explained in a follow-up, “I strongly supported Obama for president, but today’s Democratic Party has been hijacked by extremists.”
The American left has, over the past decade and a half, gone insane.
Firm support for affirmative action was overtaken by the insanity of “anti-racism” and critical race theory. Rather than accepting LGBTQ people, the litmus test became embracing gender transition for kids, mandatory use of “preferred pronouns” and denial of the obvious facts about trans athletes.
Criticism of law-enforcement excesses morphed into “Defund and Abolish.” Supporting immigration, into outright opposition to any border control.
That’s to say nothing of free speech. An American left that long cherished it now deems it an insidious form of “white supremacy.”
And it all comes packaged in fury at anyone who hasn’t gone along, let alone those who dissent.
