The Democratic Party Still Does Not Get It
Throughout the left-wing politico/media sphere, there are two overarching themes being deployed in hope of preventing any Republican gains in the 2022 midterm election. They argue that Republican electoral support is due to the fact that the GOP knows how to fight for power. And that the Party is bringing down the Republic in pursuit of that power. This from the Democratic Party – a party that has a long history of imposing one-party rule wherever they can.
Democrats and their media allies are also banking on convincing a majority of the American people that Republican leaders AND voters are vile, disgusting, despicable … oh yeah … a basket of (white) deplorables who hate minorities, gays, Jews, women, foreigners and poor folks — even though a lot of Republicans are minorities, gays, Jews, women, foreigners and poor folks.
Those characterizations of the Republican Party and the tens of millions of Republican voters is grossly untrue. It is nothing less than political slander. One might even call the left’s mischaracterization as … dare we say … a BIG LIE. In fact, it is a collection of big lies.
The power of the GOP comes from the Party’s support of issues and policies that most Americans embrace. Most people not only see through the outrageous characterization of half the population. They also resent the use of them. Especially the half of the American population that are the target of the slander. It not only angers them, but politically motivates them to defeat the propaganda name-callers at the polls.
The increasingly left-leaning Democratic Party uses the character assassination as their primary tool. This is because they well understand that they cannot win on the issues.
There are any number of Democrat policies, actions and issues that drive voters away from the donkey party.
The people are getting wise to the Democrats tradition of buying votes with taxpayer money. Every time the Democrats propose giving money to some interest group, the working American is feeling it in the wallet with higher taxes and the essential tax called inflation.
More and more inner-city minorities no longer find that the same old promises that never came to fruition to be credible.
In terms of public safety, the radical left dragged the Democratic Party into the tar pit of anti-policing. Being against legal private gun ownership and defunding (disarming) police have left the most crime-ridden communities vulnerable to the kind of horrific human carnage we calculate every weekend.
The American people well understand that the Democrats’ open border policies increase the numbers of crime victims. In addition, it puts a strain on America’s financial resources at a time when Democrat spending is out of control. Republicans are for LEGAL immigration — as are most of the people.
Democrats get false praise from the media for restoring American leadership around the globe. It is another BIG LIE. If Biden is alleged to be more popular than Trump, it arguably is because the United States is more acquiescent.
Most Americans are not as eager as Democrats to enter a new meaningless nuclear deal with Iran — a nation that uses our acquiescence and money to spread terrorism against the civilized world. No amount of climate fearmongering will convince Americans that a climate accord that places most of the burden and sacrifices on the United States is fair.
The Democrats anti-fossil fuel policies are already impacting gas prices at the local stations. Those increases hit every American — the poorest the hardest.
As America’s indigenous friends in Afghanistan are mercilessly slaughtered along with their families– and when the Taliban imposes their gruesome brutal rule over that nation, Biden’s tragic decision to pull out against all military, allied and diplomatic advice will be a heavy yoke around the Democratic Party.
Those on the left — who currently represent the center of the Democratic Party — may well learn that ad hominem attacks will not trump the issues. That is the strength of the Republican Party — and those on the left just do not get it. And personally, I hope they never do.
So, there ’tis.
