I remember when Barack Obama was the ultimate example of this country devolving into leftist asininity and now he seems to be one of the few sane ones in the leftist’s proverbial room.
According to The Hill, Obama was at a fundraising meeting on Friday when he warned donors about Democrats moving too far into a radical territory in 2020.
“Even as we push the envelope and we are bold in our vision, we also have to be rooted in reality,” Obama said. “The average American doesn’t think we have to completely tear down the system and remake it.”
He’s right. The left’s radicalism has left a sour taste in the mouths of many voters, and despite all their best efforts, Trump continues to succeed in the polls, and experts continue to predict his victory.
Of course, the left cherishes their bubble and has not only refused to heed Obama’s advice but spit in his face because of it. A “#TooFarLeft” hashtag has now sprung up on Twitter with former Hillary Clinton aide Peter Daou proclaiming that being “too far left” means caring about the oppressed and the downtrodden.
Saying "Americans are moderate than these wild leftists" is basically conceding that the far right propaganda machine has prevailed.
Because what the Too Far Left™ movement wants is fairness and equality. Health care, education, dignity for ALL people, not just oligarchs…

That’s not actually true. Being too far left looks more like violence, Antifa, cancel culture, the sexualization of children, and ridiculous accusations of social sin than helping your fellow man.
Still, the far left is having a fit on Twitter, including Rep. Ilhan Omar, to no one’s surprise.
If being #TooFarLeft means believing:
✅ Healthcare is a human right
✅ Future generations should live on a healthy planet
✅ All student debt should be cancelled
✅ The minimum wage should be $15
✅ Lives depend on gun reform
✅ Families don’t belong in cages
Count me in! 💪🏽

I’m #TooFarLeft because I think healthcare is a human right.
I’m #TooFarLeft because I think families shouldn’t be separated.
I’m #TooFarLeft because I think children shouldn’t be dying at school.
I’m #TooFarLeft because I think women should control their own bodies.

I’m #TooFarLeft because I think it would be good if everyone had enough to eat and a home to live in.

Tubman was #TooFarLeft for freeing slaves, not waiting on government to end slavery.
Panthers were #TooFarLeft for breakfast programs that put pressure on government to feed children before school.

There is no such thing as being #TooFarLeft. It is what got us the New Deal, social safety nets, weekends, a minimum wage. It will get us universal single-payer M4A, CJR, peace, and a Green New Deal.

While you are comfortable in your $15 million mansion, Americans are suffering. People are dying because they can't afford Healthcare, people are homeless, children go without school meals, the planet is dying. Is it really #TooFarLeft to care about humanity? pic.twitter.com/ESwI5lR04N

I’m #TooFarLeft because I’m revolted by the GOPs rampant misogyny & racism.
— kristen johnston (@thekjohnston) November 16, 2019
I guess I am #TooFarLeft because I want people to live decent, healthy lives.

I’m not sure what’s funnier here. That Obama is now the left’s enemy because he was trying to caution moderation or the fact that the hard-left thinks so highly of itself despite fascism being so common within their ranks.
Here’s what it looks like when you’re too far left.
And these are just a few examples.
The internet is host to many different videos and videos like this make the rounds pretty heavily. The voting public sees the connections between this kind of hardcore nonsense and how Democrat politicians don’t seem to want to denounce it, and even sometime applaud it.
It’s a radicalism that many in America don’t take to.
Obama is right. America doesn’t want this and the left would do well not to embrace it as they are or they’ll never find their way back into the goodwill of the general public.
Until then, we can expect victories in 2020, 2024, 2028, 2032, etc, etc, etc.
If he wants, Obama can come and vote Republican.
