This article misses the point. It is the Democratic Party’s abandonment of that creed of American values in favor of identity politics that has led increasing numbers of lifelong Democrats to abandon the party. The Democratic Party has been largely captured by Left Progressives who disdain America values of freedom, free speech, fair play, and opportunity. Instead they push racial, ethnic, and religious divisions, promote political correctness and censorship, and government bureaucracy to substitute quotas for competency. They have been busy peddling the idea that there is something immoral about enforcing immigration laws, that America needs to have open borders, that it should allow unlimited migration of anyone whether or not they accept American values, whether or not the country can readily absorb and integrate them in such numbers. A large percentage of the existing population of all races, national backgrounds, and religions, sees this agenda as a threat to their interests and as fundamentally antithetical to American values.
