After Donald Trump garnered accolades after his speech before a joint secession of congress Tuesday from some of the most unlikely members of the media and the left like Obama’s commie buddy Van Jones, and from the left side of the congressional aisle like Senator Joe Manchin, progressives who were already running around hysterically with their hair on fire completely burst into flames and are now threatening their own.
When Members of the U.S. Senate broke away from Hillary during her run against Obama, they were little more than the rats they are, and always will be leaving a sinking ship.
Those who watched the movie Titanic, don’t want to be stuck with the band and a fat tuba player when the lifeboats are filled.
They did it before and they will do it again they are the party of zero principles.
In a more modern version, we have the image below.
That’s my hand holding my iPhone, I’m standing on Hillary’s shoulders, not to worry I’ve got my scuba gear and my dry suit and will be on board one of the lifeboats before tomorrow.
Democrats already face a daunting 2018 landscape, with 10 senators up for reelection in states that Trump won.
However, the threat of primaries foes going up against vulnerable Democrats such as West Virginia’s further complicates the party’s chances of coming out with a net victory.
But the party’s left flank is convinced that a full embrace of progressivism is the only way to return to power, and it is ready to fight for the party’s soul. ”
Why threaten to primary Democrats?
Elected officials tend to take the path of least resistance on most things—unless you create a political cost for them.
That’s where we come in. The growing anti-Trump movement springing up at town hall meetings and protests across the country has already pushed Democratic strategy in the right direction—but not nearly far enough.
Three Democratic Senators voted “yes” to confirm Rex Tillerson, a Big Oil baron with close ties to Putin who conspired to destroy our climate by suppressing evidence about global warming.
Fourteen Senate Democrats joined with Republicans to confirm Rep. Mike Pompeo to be our new CIA director, despite Pompeo’s past Islamophobic remarks and ties to far-right conspiracy theorists,his position in favor of unconstitutional surveillance on Americans, and his enthusiastic support for torture and secret detention.
And Senate Democrats like Dick Durbin, Claire McCaskill, and Jon Tester have all voiced the opinion that Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch deserves “a fair shake”—after Republicans refused to even meet with President Obama’s nominee Merrick Garland for almost a year and effectively stole a Supreme Court nomination.
This cannot stand.
They are sounding like Islamic extremists. Vote as we demand or we will hand you your heads.
We will only defeat Republicans on the local, state, and federal level if we go on the offensive.
The next crucial step is escalating our demands, and demonstrating that we won’t accept anything less than a full opposition, by showing Democrats just how many people are willing to back primary challenges to Democratic collaborators and enablers of Trump.
Democrats must know there is a price for collaborating with Trump.
Any Democrats who would give legitimacy or support to Trump do not represent us and must be replaced by people who will stand up for our lives, our values, and our democracy. Add your name.
If you choose to sign at all, using the names of Barrack Obama, or Hillary Clinton would add a nice consistent touch.
“We fundamentally reject the assumption that Democrats can only win in red states by pandering to racists and big bankers…..” (Said the party of delusions and nothing more.)
“The way we beat Trumpism and take back Congress and statehouses is offering a coherent vision of our own to put people back to work.
We don’t need to completely compromise our own values and principles……” Completely? They have none to begin with,it’s all about getting elected.
It will be interesting to watch the left eat its own.
