Seriously, when aren’t they seething? When Obama won in 2008 and 2012, they still seethed. It’s what they do. Now, though, they are supposedly going to do it against the Democratic Party
(The Hill) The Republican civil war was supposed start this week.
Instead, a ferocious struggle has erupted on the left over the smoldering remains of the Democratic Party.
Liberals are seething over the election and talking about launching a Tea Party-style revolt. They say it’s the only way to keep Washington Democrats connected to the grassroots and to avoid a repeat of the 2016 electoral disaster, which blindsided party elites.
Progressives believe the Democratic establishment is responsible for inflicting Donald Trump upon the nation, blaming a staid corporate wing of the party for nominating Hillary Clinton and ignoring the Working Class voters that propelled Trump to victory.
Liberals interviewed by The Hill want to see establishment Democrats targeted in primaries, and the “Clinton-corporate wing” of the party rooted out for good.
They even want to establish a Tea Party style movement. In case they’ve forgotten, they tried this with the Coffee Party and Occupy Wall Street. Both of which are technically around, but, mostly ignored, because they were a bunch of unhinged cranks. Oh, and rapists, drug users, used violence including stabbings, shootings, and murder, along with attempted bombings. And liked to poop on police cars, doorsteps, and wherever they felt like it. Nutballs.
They pulled this same schtick back in 2004 when John Kerry lost, and what did it get them? Nothing. Because liberals are trained to be sheeple, and they’ll come right back to supporting whatever their Democratic Party masters tell them to. There will be no revolution, no remaking of the party. Especially since these nutballs want to move the party further and further to the left, closer and closer to a fully Progressive (nice Fascism) society.
The Hill reached former Sen. Ken Salazar (D-Colo.), who was in charge of Clinton’s White House transition team, as he packed up to leave Washington and return to his farm in Southern Colorado.
“There were people who felt left out of he economy over the last eight years who were never able to get back on their feet, blue collar men and women,” Salazar said. “Donald Trump was able to capture them in terms of emotion and sentiment.”
“Democrats have not done very well in rural America and I don’t understand why that has happened. The broader question is how to have a Democratic Party that can attract those working men and women.”
Democrats sneer at rural America. Everyone it is a rube, a hick, an idiot, a no-nothing. There is nothing but condescension for rural America. You can bet that the whole “Jesusland” and “Dumbfuckistan” talking points will crop up soon, if they haven’t already. The Dems are the party of elites. Hollywood, athletes, etc. They all feel superior, and cannot identify with the average working American. They really like to tell everyone else how to feel and act. And this will not get better. A default position is patronization, and people have seen through that.
