Trump Derangement Syndrome has now driven the left and the Democratic party over the edge and a political suicide watch should be issued.
The bitter fury that has turned liberals into fanatics determined to burn done the entire country if that’s what it takes to stick it to President Trump has now moved beyond the always ridiculous hoax that Russia caused Hillary to lose the election.
Democrats are now taking aim at the Second Amendment with a big disarmament and demonization push that the potential to backfire by energizing conservatives.
If that isn’t enough, some geniuses are pushing Democrats to embrace the abolition of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement as a key piece of their 2020 campaign for the presidency.
This is a growing position on the left, and I imagine 2020 Democratic presidential aspirants will have to grapple with it https://t.co/GOuoLnBHWG

Via the leftist rag The Nation “It’s Time to Abolish ICE”:
The idea of defunding ICE has gained traction among immigrant-rights groups horrified by the speed at which, under President Donald Trump, the agency has ramped up an already brutal deportation process. Mary Small, policy director at Detention Watch Network, said, “Responsible policymakers need to be honest about the fact that the core of the agency is broken.” Her group led the charge to defund ICE with its #DefundHate campaign last year.
Groups like Indivisible Project and the Center for Popular Democracy have also called for defunding ICE. Brand New Congress, a progressive PAC, has the proposal in its immigration platform.
“ICE is terrorizing American communities right now,” said Angel Padilla, policy director of the Indivisible Project. “They’re going into schools, entering hospitals, conducting massive raids, and separating children from parents every day. We are funding those activities, and we need to use all the leverage we have to stop it.”
Though ICE abolition is spreading on the left, it quickly meets extreme skepticism elsewhere. In part, this is because the mainstream political discourse has a huge blind spot for the agency’s increasingly brutal policies. While elites have generally become concerned with rising authoritarianism, they have mainly ignored the purges ICE is conducting in immigrant communities.
Now that the Trump Justice Department is suing California over not adhering to federal immigration law, the coastal crazies who control the party are about to make the massive strategic blunder of making the election into a choice between America and California.
ICE operates as an unaccountable deportation force. Dems running in 2020 should campaign on ending the agency in its current form. https://t.co/hnK9LpPojV

According to the Daily Caller “Abolishing ICE Looks Likely To Become 2020 Campaign Issue For Democrats”:
Left-wing pundits and activists are increasing pressure on Democratic politicians to embrace the fringe position of abolishing ICE.
Once a fringe idea on the far-left, abolishing the nation’s immigration enforcement agency now looks likely to become a campaign issue in the Democrats’ 2020 presidential primary.
Former Hillary Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon came out for abolishing the agency in January. “ICE operates as an unaccountable deportation force,” Fallon argued. “Dems running in 2020 should campaign on ending the agency in its current form.”
Now that the Trump Justice Department is suing California over not adhering to federal immigration law, the coastal crazies who control the party are about to make the massive strategic blunder of making the election into a choice between America and the shithole state.
