College Democrats of America shows the Democratic Party is only going to grow more toxic

Democratic politicians and pundits like to tout their support among the youth as proof of where the country is going in the coming years. If the College Democrats of America are any indication, the viper pit of identity politics is only going to get worse.

To summarize the controversy among the Democratic Party’s national collegiate organization, a Muslim student running to be the organization’s president dropped out of the race after it was discovered that he tweeted out a racial slur when he was 15. The day before the election, it was revealed that another Muslim candidate, Nourhan Mesbah, had antisemitic tweets from when she was 13.

Mesbah went on to win the election. She went on to say that she was the victim of Islamophobia and xenophobia. Now, she is being accused of “a pattern of discrimination against members of the black community, specifically black women” by her replacement as the organization’s "director of Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access.” Naturally, no specific instances of “anti-blackness” were listed in the report.

It’s difficult to decide which element of this story is the worst. Bad tweets from teenagers are certainly a nonstory, but college students embracing the media strategy of using them to destroy political opponents is clearly an issue. That Mesbah was mostly unapologetic and went on to accuse her opponents of Islamophobia is clearly an issue, as are the unspecified allegations of racism against her. There are no sympathetic characters here.:snip:
