If you were wondering just how massive the potential scope and long-term impact of a Trump victory might be, well, things just got even better/bigger.
In 2008 the DNC made a specific decision to go all-in with full throated radicalism and left-wing ideological moonbattery. The social justice warriors took over the advocacy reins of the Democrat party. Progressive purity was the litmus, climate and social justice was the cause celeb. Obama was the vehicle, emotion drives the brand.
Two years later Democrats killed their own “blue dog” coalition (2010), and suffered the largest electoral defeat in the history of their party. In 2011 they doubled down in Madison Wisconsin and waged a ground battle, they lost. Occupy Wall Street (OWS) began smashing windows in Dem strongholds as a visible protest to their defeat.
In 2012 and 2014 the Democrat party loses only amplified across America as one-by-one state legislative houses collapsed under the weight of continual Democrat radicalism.
However, refusing to look at their geography, social justice warriors tripled down on political correctness; Black Lives Matter continued the anti-police riots (and affiliated nonsense), and George Soros poured hundreds of millions into his attempts to keep the destructive ideology active and alive.
For over eight years the ideological media has pretended all of this failure didn’t exist, ultimately culminating in their insufferable reality disconnect leading up to the 2016 presidential election and Donald Trump’s victory.
Today, middle America couldn’t ask for a more laughable reaction to the defeat of Hillary Clinton and the past eight years of abysmal failure.
Today, Keith Ellison announces his intention to lead the even more uber progressive DNC and force the Democrat party even further toward the radical left.
Better still, Ellison is the odds-on favorite to win:
WASHINGTON – Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., formally announced his bid to run the Democratic National Committee on Monday, calling for the Democrats to “rebuild” the party after losing the White House and Congress in the elections last week.
“This election cycle, we did not motivate enough people to the ballot box,” Ellison said in his announcement. “We must champion the challenges of working families and give voters a reason to show up at the polls in 2018 and beyond. We must build a bench not just for federal candidates, but for state and local candidates across the nation.”
Ellison cited a “broad coalition of support” for his candidacy. It includes Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., who is retiring, and other lawmakers.
Ellison is a Muslim and is among the more liberal Democratic lawmakers, and if he were elevated to DNC chair, it would signal the party’s move to the left and an acknowledgement that the party did not motivate the base to turn out to vote last week. (read more)
