Q. How do you know that Charlottesville has caused the left to utterly lose its mind?

A. When Al Sharpton—Al Sharpton!—gets attacked by a fellow liberal for refusing to go far enough in his condemnation of President Trump.

Today’s Morning Joe offered the spectacle of Donny Deutsch—a quintessential Upper West Side/Hamptons liberal—attacking Sharpton for refusing to label Trump a “racist.” Deutsch accused Sharpton of “dancing around” the issue by merely saying that Trump “plays to” racism. Deutsch:

“Don’t you need to now come out . . . He’s a racist! Can you say he’s a racist? . . . You can’t say the president is a racist? You can’t say that?”

That seems to be the DNC theme for this week. All I heard yesterday (and this morning, a bit), was that Trump was evil for not coming out with some more specific condemnation of white people. So, apparently Al Sharpton was not holding up his end of the bargain to support the DNC.

I don’t have TV. I walked by the TV in my building’s lobby on my way to work this morning and CNN was on with the crawler “Trump refuses to condemn white supremist groups”, or something like that.

Immediately I assumed I had missed some attack they had done over the weekend. Nope. They want him to condemn them on principle. They want him to condemn them not for what they’ve done, but for what they believe.

Doing that would be a textbook example of being “un-American”.

They think we are idiots.
