Jim Webb really does seem to be a self-hating liberal. He claims to be a Democrat and yet assaults Democrats every chance that he gets. Now that he’s running for president, it seems that the way he wants to differentiate himself from the party is to turn his back against liberals and attack them.

During an interview with Fox News this Sunday, Webb said that he felt the Democratic party was just as in the wrong as Donald Trump when it comes to divisive racial language.

This kind of divisive, inflammatory rhetoric by people who want to be Commander-in-Chief is not helpful and we have seen it from the liberal side, as well, this kind of rhetoric, as it goes to southern white cultures.
