Hatred is a powerful force: But it’s no substitute for leadership

Hating Trump Can’t Unite the Democrats.

The more they whine and complain they are leading their party into the graveyard of fools.

Some might take offense at the way President Trump mocks by nicknaming his opposition.

Let theme whine all they like, it’s Trump’s style, and he’s not likely to change.

Hating Trump Can’t Unite the Democrats

Daniel Greenfield

February 24th, 2020

The Democrat presidential primaries have been a long politically correct apology tour.

Joe Biden was forced to apologize for opposing crime and busing.

Bernie Sanders had to offer up mea culpas forever being on good terms with the NRA and for questioning open borders, Kamala Harris had to apologize for enforcing whatever passes for the law in California, as did Amy Klobuchar, who also had to apologize for having once supported border fencing and English as the country’s national language.

After jumping into the race, Michael Bloomberg launched his own apology tour for trying to stop gang violence with ‘stop and frisk,’ for criticizing Obamacare, and the easy loans that wrecked the economy.

No candidate, no matter how lefty, is ever truly pure enough for the party of the perpetually woke.

Any politician old enough to run for the White House also has a history of believing in things like borders, language, biology, math, law and order, free speech, and any other realities that offend the Wokeratti.

Only a candidate who has done nothing except chastely spout radical nonsense can pass the purity test.

That’s why Bernie Sanders, a hack from a minor state who, until being excavated by some Obama campaign people who hadn’t gotten a gig with the Clinton campaign, was an obscure nobody who had done nothing except rename post offices, is leading the Democrat death march to political oblivion.

The Party of Love?

There may be 48 years worth of difference between Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Senator Bernie Sanders, but they both have the same amount of experience getting anything done in Washington D.C.

The only thing they’ve ever done in his long and her short career is layout imaginary visions of socialist utopias without having the life skills to change a flat tire, catch a bus, or make their own breakfast.

The Democrats have become a party divided between the moderates, obsessed with destroying Trump, and the socialists, obsessed with destroying the Democrats.

The emerging representative of the former is Bloomberg: a billionaire willing to blow through 1.5% of his net worth to stop President Trump.

And Bernie represents the vanguard of the oppressed proletariat of Burlington, San Francisco, and Aspen, who are slightly to the right of Castro, but, like their leader, have no clue how to get anything done.

Bloomberg represents the core Democrats who don’t care about anything except beating Trump, while Bernie represents the radicals who care less about beating Trump than about beating Bloomberg.

The average Democrat outside the DNC doesn’t understand this distinction.
That’s why Bernie is leading.

In the party’s current electability obsession, any candidate who does well is electable and can beat Trump.

That includes Bernie Sanders, a talking horse, and Amy Klobuchar.

Biden maintained the lead for so long because he seemed electable.

Details like what he actually believed and whether he was playing with a full deck were deemed irrelevant.

Those same details also don’t matter when it comes to Bernie.

But that just meant that the Democrats outsourced policy to the radical fringe that cares about issues.

That’s why the 2020 primaries have seen Democrats endorse gun confiscation (Beto O’Rourke), letting the Boston Marathon bomber vote from prison (Bernie Sanders), eliminating private health insurance (Sanders, Kamala Harris, and Elizabeth Warren), eliminating free speech on the internet (Warren), and taking away the tax-exempt status of churches and synagogues that don’t back gay marriage (O’Rourke).

These are not winning issues.

Most Democrats claim they want electable candidates, but they’re going into 2020 with unelectable policy proposals hanging around their necks that will alienate the average voters they need to win.

House Democrats could have changed that, instead they were sucked into the impeachment black hole.

And no matter how much Speaker Pelosi resisted, the one part of an elected government that the Democrats control is best known for an obsession with Trump and a disinterest in everything else.

Hating Trump isn’t a winning strategy.

The post-impeachment polls showed that all too clearly.

But it’s either that or nationalizing health care, confiscating guns, banning churches and letting terrorists vote from prison.

And those are even worse platforms to run on than Trump Derangement Syndrome.

The Democrats are now on track to have a nominee who once said, “I don’t mind people coming up and calling me a communist” because they didn’t care about anything else except destroying Trump.

And, instead, they’re destroying themselves.

The Democrats have locked their party into only one possible strategy and that’s turning out as much of their base as possible.

But turnout signals from the primaries have been mixed and large-scale national events like the Impeachment Eve rallies and the Women’s March fizzled badly with few attendees.

The white suburbanites whose cultural hostility fueled the “resistance” appear to be fading.

Despite their hatred of Trump, they’re wary of socialism.

And a Sanders win would depress their turnout.

But a win by anyone except Sanders will depress turnout by his base of Marxist profs and unemployed bloggers.

None of the leading candidates summon much enthusiasm from black voters.

Massive turnout requires a united party.

And that was a lot easier when they were uniting against something.

2018 saw great turnout because the Democrats rallied around their common front of hating Trump.

But uniting against Trump is very different than uniting behind Bernie, Bloomberg, or any other candidate.

Republican primaries have seen massive turnout because of support for President Trump.

A united party is set to face off against a divided party. And that is very bad news for the subdivided Democrats.

Hatred doesn’t unite political movements. It divides them.

Any political movement that depends on division is inherently fractured.

The deeper the divisions become; the harder Democrats hate their common enemy.

But underneath that common hatred are a thousand festering hatreds, rivalries and resentments, waiting to break out into internecine warfare.

The Democrats are now at risk of winding up with a brokered conviction because hate divided them.

In the Trump Derangement Syndrome era, the Democrats no longer really stand for anything and are willing to fall for anything, from radical ideologies to billionaires and socialists buying the nomination.

Hatred has hollowed out the Democrats leaving behind nothing but a great empty void.

The primaries are the dark night of the Democrat soul.

The party’s soul has fed on poisonous hatred. Morning has come to America. But morning may never come to the Democrats divided in darkness.

About JCscuba

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

    Hatred is definitely a choice, however, in the case of the Democrats it seems to have internalized as their party is fast imploding on itself.

    There is much more to the Democratic Party problems. The Democrat have decided to promote their policy against Trump to be a position against the Trump Policies.

    Two of these policies involve issues that no rational citizen and Patriot should be against. Illegal Immigration is not a desirable policy. The Border Wall is just one facet of this stupid position by the Democrats. There is the health and financial aspects of illegal immigration that are very important. The estimates are that illegal welfare and “benefits” to illegal Immigrants exceed many BILLIONS of dollars annually. There is also the criminal background aspect of these illegal immigrants = these people are criminals when they violate the immigration laws – no debate. The Democrats demonize law enforcement for enforcing the laws of our Country.

    President Trump’s PLAN to return America to the Rule of Law is also all good. The Democrats worry that they will lose the progress in removing the enforcement of the laws. Sanctuary Cities and States is a good example. Trump is on the winning side of this argument.

    Eliminating corruption inside the Government is another great issue for Trump and a complete loss for the Democrats. The Ukraine corruption has exposed Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, John Kerry and John Kerry as corrupt. Hillary Clinton is also corrupt along with many others.

    The FAKE Impeachment Investigation is another very bad mark against the Democrats. It has become very clear that the Democrats conspired against a sitting President which is an Act of Sedition. Attorney General Barr will be presenting this case soon. Associate Attorney General John Huber has been investigating this matter for three years and has all of the evidence. This incident is the Spy-Gate Conspiracy and is real and criminal and was an Act of Sedition. Associate Attorney General John Durham has now declared this to be a “Criminal” Investigation. Durham is working the case investigation from the East Coast while Huber is working from the West Coast.

    The list of people involved includes Obama, Hillary, Comey, Rosenstein, Mueller, Brennan, Clapper, Lynch and many more.

    The 2020 Election will include disclosure of these issues
