Raising taxes, destroying health care, trade negotiation incompetence, open borders, giving illegals the right to vote, disrespect for law enforcement…all of these and more are reasons why Democrats SHOULD NOT be allowed to regain seats in 2020. Their agenda would snuff out the booming economy and opportunities enjoyed by working Americans today.
Aside from their radical policies, the current civil war within the Democratic Party demonstrates their lack of leadership and vision. The feuds between liberal extremists, moderates, and old guard leadership have torn the party apart heading into the 2020 election. Not only are Democrats unlikely to make gains in Congress they are ill-prepared to lead even if they did.
For example, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has been unable to rein in the liberal freshmen extremists in her party. And a harsh exchange of words has broken out into a party firestorm.
“You got a complaint? You come and talk to me about it. But do not tweet about our members and expect us to think that that is just OK,” Speaker Pelosi said targeting radical Congresswomen called “The Squad.”
“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world. But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people, and that’s how many votes they got.”
The Squad consists of 4 Democrats including New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, and Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib. Perhaps the most vocal leader among the group, AOC, pushed back on Speaker Pelosi’s instruction hurling racist overtones at the long-standing Democrat leader.
“When these comments first started, I kind of thought that she was keeping the progressive flank at more of an arm’s distance in order to protect more moderate members, which I understood,” AOC reportedly said. “But the persistent singling out … it got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful … the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.”
What’s remarkable is that Pelosi and President Trump are both on the political offensive with the liberal firebrands at the same time.
“Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done,” Trump tweeted.
While many biased and fake news organizations have tried to focus on the ongoing hostilities between the White House and liberal extremists, evidence is surfacing that the Democratic Party is engaged in a blood feud. Battle lines are being drawn even within the ranks of the anti-Trump media.
“The progressives act as though anyone who dares disagree with them is bad,” Maureen Dowd of the New York Times reportedly wrote. “Not wrong, but bad, guilty of some human failing, some impurity that is a moral evil that justifies their venom.”
Dowd went on to include AOC’s vocal chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti, who has gone on the record insinuating the Democratic Party’s leaders are cowards. Long-standing liberal insiders have thrown shade on the AOC mouthpiece. Obama-era crony and failed Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel called Chakrabarti a “snot-nosed punk” while warning the fractured party could upend any hopes of beating Trump in 2020.
“The 79-year-old speaker and the 29-year-old freshman are trapped in a generational and ideological tangle that poses a real threat to the Democrats’ ability to beat Donald Trump next year,” Emanuel reportedly said.
Former Sen. Harry Reid’s chief of staff, Adam Jentleson, aligned himself with the radical upstarts in Congress.
“Truly bizarre decision by House leadership to go easy on Trump while declaring open warfare on caucus members who are advocating more aggressive accountability against Trump,” Jentleson reportedly said.
“The Democratic leadership is 1000 percent more focused on getting Chakrabarti fired — just so they can say they broke Ocasio-Cortez — than they were about investigating Alex Acosta or E. Jean Carroll’s rape allegation against Trump. This (expletive) is incredibly (expletive) embarrassing.”
If the insider feud in Congress isn’t enough to persuade voters Democrats are unable to lead, top presidential hopefuls are worlds apart on the issues. Frontrunners such as California Sen. Kamala Harris, and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren and others are pushing ideas like Medicare for All, and slave reparations.
Former Vice President Creepy Joe Biden recently floated the idea of expanding the failed Obamacare mandate that exponentially drove up health insurance costs.
It seems that if Democrats are not infighting over racism, segregation, or health care, they suffer a substantial respect gap between leadership and rank-and-file members that cannot be bridged.
