Do Sixties Radicals Own the Democrat Party?

Remember the highly forgetable Democrat Convention? They used an old Buffalo Springfield song from 1966 to end their show. The lyrics go:
There's something happening here But what it is ain't exactly clear. There's a man with a gun over there Telling me I got to beware I think it's time we stop, Children, what's that sound? Everybody look, what's going down? There's battle lines being drawn. Nobody's right if everybody's wrong Young people speaking their minds Getting so much resistance from behind It's time we stop, Hey, what's that sound? Everybody look, what's going down? What a field day for the heat (Ooh ooh ooh) A thousand people in the street (Ooh ooh ooh) Singing songs and they carrying signs (Ooh ooh ooh) Mostly say, "Hooray for our side" (Ooh ooh ooh) It's time we stop, Hey, what's that sound? Everybody look, what's going down? Paranoia strikes deep Into your life it will creep It starts when you're always afraid Step out of line, the man comes and takes you away We better stop, Hey, what's that sound? Everybody look, what's going down? You better stop, Hey, what's that sound? Everybody look, what's going down? You better stop, Now, what's that sound? Everybody look, what's going down? You better stop, Children, what's that sound? Everybody look, what's going down?


Like the sixties counter culture, 21st. Century Democrats are highly suspicious of the police. (The Man, The "Heat").
You'd think a progressive political party would want to go with something other than a song that starts: "We're not exactly sure what's going on!"
The tie dye shirts are upstairs in a cedar chest. The man buns are finally in style (sort of). There's still a hint of patchoulli oil in the air, but the Sixties radicals are running the Establlishment now, at least on the Democrat side. Bill Ayers helped Obama get elected, and the Free Speech movement of Berkeley, which once argued for all speech to be heard (because theirs wasn't) now literally riots to shut down speech of anyone but themselves.
Into this mix march Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Kamala, the opportunist who slept her way into public office, only to be rated as left of Bernie Sanders as a senator, and Joe Biden, who, if elected, would be the firsts sitting president to be removed under the 25th. Amendment.

Please vote for Donald Trump like your republic depended on it!
