On Sunday, The New York Times published a story about the religious Left on the front page, suggesting a resurgence of Christian liberals in politics. But buried deep in the report was a stunning admission: religious liberals are at loggerheads with “secular fundamentalists,” and the Democratic Party fears to promote religious voices in its ranks.
Ask any black person which political party has been black people’s political ally. With near unanimity, blacks would answer the Democratic Party. Asked which political party has been hostile to blacks, they’d say the Republican Party with similar unanimity. For better answers, check out Prager University’s five-minute clip “The Inconvenient Truth About the Democratic Party,” by Carol Swain, professor of political science at Vanderbilt University.
Since its founding in the late 1820s, the Democratic Party has defended slavery, started the Civil War and opposed Reconstruction. The Democratic Party imposed segregation. Its members engaged in the lynchings of blacks and opposed the civil rights acts of the 1950s and ’60s. During Reconstruction, hundreds of black men were elected to Southern state legislatures as Republicans, and 22 black Republicans served in the U.S. Congress by 1900. The Democratic Party did not elect a black man to Congress until 1935.
Progressive Editor: Democrats Making Huge Error Obsessing About Russia
No kidding. Trump Derangement Syndrome and its associated conspirazoid thinking are probably the main reason so many people have stood by Trump, despite his gaffes and genuine errors.
The Nation’s editor and publisher Katrina Vanden Huevel warned that Democrats’ obsession about Russia was a mistake and could torpedo efforts to effectively combat the Trump agenda. Granted, the latter part is typical run-of-the-mill progressive talk, The Nation is a left wing magazine, but in March, Vanden Huevel ripped into Democrats for the Neo-McCarthyite furor that has engulfed the party over Russia. She noted that Russian interference during the 2016 election needs to be investigated, but the political Left has devolved into thinking that mere meetings with Russian officials are akin to treason. Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-FL) seems to think that any meeting with the Russians is not appropriate. This is nonsense. Democrats lost, they need some crutch to lean on because they all thought Hillary was going to win. And there’s no way any person could lose to Trump, unless some sort of covert collusion occurred. One big problem: there is zero evidence of any collusion. Even Hillary is starting to peddle conspiracy theories about the collusion allegations, for which she has zero evidence to back up. More.
Reality check: Exactly. Of course the Russians tried to influence the U.S. election. So did Canada, probably. And the U.S. is hardly shy about interfering in foreign elections itself!
There is no evidence that the Russians made any difference. The real story is simple and devastating: The Dems abandoned their historic blue-collar constituency in favour of Cool urban identity groups who did not deliver the goods. And they are they paying for it now. But because they openly despise that older constituency and love the new one, they cannot simply acknowledge their choice as a mistake. Hence the meltdown goes on and on, and on.
Besides running a hit TV show, Lena Dunham’s greatest skill is completely alienating the average American voter. She campaigned incessantly for Hillary in 2016, sending potential voters fleeing rallies in sickness and embarrassment. Political scientists theorize Dunham had a greater impact on the outcome of the 2016 election than Russia, Comey and anime Nazis combined.
Democrats are hoping to capitalize on the anti-Trump excitement in their base by staging a coordinated “Summer of Resistance” across the country that’s aimed at countering the agenda of President Trump and the GOP-led Congress.
The national media and the Democratic Party have gone stark raving mad over President Trump’s election victory; they refuse to accept it. Their paroxysms of fury are evident all day long on every network and cable news outlet and every mainstream newspaper. Since Nov. 8, they have leapt like a swarm of remoras onto a whale proclaiming every little thing that they think might take the man down. Hillary’s team concocted the “Russia collusion” hoax within twenty-four hours of her defeat. Everyone knows this! Hillary is the one with all the Russia connections; lots of them, all financially benefitting her personal foundation. They, the media, have come up with numerous other schemes with which to attack Trump: taxes, emoluments, tweets, family, even his ice cream servings.
The Democratic National Committee staffer who was gunned down on July 10 on a Washington, D.C., street just steps from his home had leaked thousands of internal emails to WikiLeaks, law enforcement sources told Fox News.
Pity the Democrats, to the extent you can without bursting into hysterical laughter at their agony. America has thoroughly rejected them in every branch of the federal government plus out in the states, and on top of that they were utterly humiliated by the guy they all claimed was a complete moron. Which begs the question – what does that make the sanctimonious harpy he crushed in the Electoral College?
They still haven’t realized what’s going on. Their ego-driven drive to dominate normal people and shape us into New Socialist Nongendered Beings has blinded them to the bitter reality.
The rage against red America is so strong that The New York Time’s predictably progressive Nick Kristoff says his calls to understand red voters were “my most unpopular idea.” The essential logic—as laid out in a particularly acerbic piece in The New Republic—is that Trump’s America is not only socially deplorable, but economically moronic as well. The kind-hearted blue staters have sent their industries to the abodes of the unwashed, and taken in their poor, only to see them end up “more bitter, white, and alt-right than ever.”
Monday April 24 was Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day and in Los Angeles thousands marched in the street outside the Turkish consulate. Up in Sacramento, ruling Democrats ignored the Armenians and instead held “Muslim Day at the Capitol,” hosted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
Almost four months after her stunning defeat, Hillary Clinton on Thursday primarily blamed her loss to President Donald Trump on four factors that were beyond her control.
The former Democratic presidential candidate cited Russian meddling in the election, FBI Director James Comey’s involvement toward the end of the race, WikiLeaks theft of emails from her campaign chairman, and misogyny.
