Not surprised, Democrats have changed completely just in my lifetime, almost doing a 180 in many respects. The party that was once completely anti-racism, anti-war, pro working class, pro free speech, free love, etc. has mutated into this fear mongering, xenophobic (Russia), identity politic obsessed, divisive, pro-censorship, puritanical, and hateful group of people just in the last 15 or so years. I know I'm generalizing but those are the people that dominate the political conversation within the party at least.
Kucinich is about the last one I somewhat respect.
Even in 2008 the democrats were perceived as a very different and moderate party. There is a reason you can find plenty of clips of Bill Clinton and Obama spouting what are now deemed republican views.
