For every push to the middle left that some Democrats have attempted/pitched, the party has moderated/watered down if they have considered it at all.I agree that the more radical elements of any political party need to be reined in, I wish we were seeing more of that by the GOP. The Democrats are (so far) not going to the extreme like the GOP has. This difference is real, IMO, and makes the “both sides” argument more counterproductive at this point in time than valid. It comes across as excusing the current excesses of the GOP.
For every push to the right that Republicans have attempted/pitched, the party has almost always accepted and passed/adopted. For goodness sake, they didn't even bother to enumerate a platform in the last election except "do whatever Trump and the far right of the party wants."
