A few months ago a writer submitted a letter stating the fact that they didn't like labels. The writer stated the feelings of being very comfortable with the state of the party saying, "As for the Democratic Party being fractured as was implied, those who are true Democrats do not believe this." Just to clarify, I didn't imply anything I made a statement of fact. The rest of the letter deduced that the writer is a never-Trumper, but the term "true Democrats" really needs further discussion. Unlike the 1930s and 40s, the great, massive and still growing threat to the survival of the USA and Western civilization emanates almost exclusively from the Left. The vehicle for this dagger pointed at the heart of America's noble traditions enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and Constitution and accompanying precious civil liberties and system of equal justice is the Democratic Party. The party, which under Presidents F. D. Roosevelt, Truman and Kennedy and supported by great Senators such as Jackson, Humphrey and Moynihan, that saved humanity from Nazism and Communism, is now increasingly under the influence of a similar totalitarian philosophy. The left half of society has determined that reasoned debate is bad and silencing the views of the other half of society is a laudable goal even if they have to do it through violence. The current burning, looting, and direct assaults on established authority while the Democrat leaders (true Democrats?) of these areas seem to encourage the violators by their silence. I would like to think that today's "true Democrat" could come up with a different description than I have but I doubt it.
