Why Is Washington So Polarized?

Don't crow in victory. We're losing - big time. The left's decades-long mission of emasculating US armed forces is almost complete. They know that if they cut off the snake's head, the body will die. A weak & ineffective military devoted more to so-called "social justice" than national defense will ensure that America succumbs to any invasion. The left owns all public schools, and most private schools too. Those are the left's primary tools for indoctrination & intimidation. The left has enough rogue judges to wage unending war on common sense.

People who have been around for a while all seem to agree. Never in living memory has the atmosphere on Capitol Hill and in Washington, D.C., generally been so toxic.

I don’t find this to be true out in the hinterland. The country as a whole is divided politically. But it’s not obviously more divided than it was 50 years ago. The toxicity of politics is a D.C. phenomenon. What’s more, the polarization is worse among the elites. It seems that the more education they have, the more polarized people become.

Why is that?

I have a theory. Any period...
