● Desist: Like a windup dummy that is slowly being w-w-w-w-wou-wouuu-woundup, Hillary is in the midsts of a slow motion comeback. She’s now caught up to where the rest of the left was about a week after the election. Give her a year and she’ll be caught up to the present.
Anyways, this time, she told her “supporters” to “resist, insist, persist, and enlist” in the fight against Trump. // rolls eyes
You know, a couple bands did that and it was cool. They used white cardboard with the words written out. Jesse Jackass used to do that verbally, though he often struggled to find rhymes. When Hillary does it, it’s like an assh*le teacher trying to be hip as she reads off a cue card. So let me suggest that she desist as an activist or a lyricist, and just exist on history’s list of those who won’t be missed, because she’s just a cist that needs to be diminished. Go away.
● Deranged: Showing that the Democrats are not a serious party, they are pushing to investigate Treasury Secretary Mnuchin for joking that people should go see The Lego Movie. Democrat Ron Wyden ran his swishy little ass to the ethics office when Mnuchin said this and filed a complaint that Mnuchin was trying to use his public office to enrich himself. What a bizarre and twisted little b*tch Wyden is.
● Is That Good Or Bad?: So Trump is putting together an effort to fight opioid addiction, the medical issue du jour. I will be curious how the left will spin this into a bad thing. I’m sure they’ll find something.
● Is That Good Or Bad II: Michael Moore is claiming that Trump will cause the extinction of the human race. So he’s an environmentalist? I thought a world free of the scourge of humanity was the goal of environmentalists?
● Interesting Article: Saw another interesting article this week. In it, a leftist Politico reporter talks about how the Democrats were blindsided by working class whites because their polling during the election just didn’t seem to be able to find these people. There is speculation that these whites told pollsters what they wanted to hear (there is some evidence for this as robo-polls proved more accurate by about 6% than human-read polls). There is also speculation that these people just couldn’t be reached because they refused to talk to the Democrats. That’s pretty much the extent of the article’s point, but I see a couple other interesting thoughts that arise from this.
First, the Democrats have always deluded themselves into thinking that the public at large is more liberal than likely voters are because polls of the public skew to the left of polls of likely voters. This suggests that what is really happening is that leftists are just more likely to speak to pollsters. That means we have no idea what America really looks like politically, except that it’s further right than they expected – and it’s already rather far right. At the very least, the idea that “the public” is further left than voters has been proven false.
Secondly, I think this confirms the racial shift throughout America. Starting in the 1980s, the South slowly turned Republican. The Rustbelt States never did, but now they are. This suggests to me that whites are nearly fully onboard with the GOP at this point. With the Democrat’s hoped-for demographic shift not happening, this bodes very poorly for the Democrats as the kids of the current generation of immigrants become more conservative.
Third, it’s pretty clear from this that the Democrats have lost their old base -- blue-collar whites.
Finally, I don’t think that figuring this out will help the Democrats in the least. They seem obsessed with process. To them “not polling” these whites is the problem rather than “not reaching” those whites. I just don’t see them offering anything to appeal to those people.
