Examples of Extremism in the Democratic Party?

Hello, I'm writing an essay about how both Democrats and Republicans are more extreme in their policies.

I was able to find plenty of examples for Republicans, but can anyone provide some examples regrading the Democrat Party? Please provide links and enough information that I can actually use.

    Good luck - even the Democratic Party of thirty years ago had few, if any, elements which could be characterized as "extremist"; the more radical left-wingers were never welcome in the Democratic Party, even in the 1960s. Nowadays, when the Democratic Party is almost indistinguishable from the pre-Nixon Republican Party, it's going to be a lot harder. The fact that Obama, one of the most conservative Presidents we've had since the Great Depression, is being called a 'radical Marxist' tells you more about the modern GOP than it does about Obama. Obama is far closer to Eisenhower politically, than he is to FDR. The frantic, hysterical accusations of victimization coming from the modern GOP are particularly telling - the less there is, the more desperate they get in trying to make themselves believe that there is. It gets harder and harder to be a Professional Victim when your side is winning.

    There's a simple, basic rule that applies to the modern GOP as it does to any authoritarian tribe throughout history - It's Always Projection. The accusations of the GOP about their "enemies" tell you about themselves.

    Mia Love, Black Female Mormon Mayor in Utah, Receives Racist Hate Mail from Democrats

    Mia Love, the African-American Mormon mayor of Sarasota Springs, Utah, who became a nationally known figure after her speech at the Republican National Convention, received racist and disturbing photos in the mail that she says were sent to her because she “poses a problem to the policies of the Obama administration.”

    It’s an odd twist, for a Female Black Republican to accuse Obama and Democrats of being the source of racist attacks on her because she’s black. It’s as if Love feels like racists would need political reasons to send her hate mail—the fact that she’s a prominent African-American female politician wouldn’t be enough.

    Thinking that America is worth saving, when 70% of the population is brain-addled.
