Paul GleiserThe Dems melt down…again.


All eyes this week are on Virginia, where Republican Glenn Youngkin, a political rookie, upset the Democrat and career politician Terry McAuliffe in the race for governor.

In the realm of two-party politics it was seismic, and the aftershocks are still being felt. The Left, of course, is again gobsmacked. The reaction in the liberal punditsphere very closely resembles their meltdown following Donald Trump’s victory in 2016.

For the life of these people they simply cannot understand how voters don’t buy what they’re selling. There has to be some explanation. And the only explanation they can think of – and is thus the explanation that they trot out every time – is white racism.

White racists (read: conservatives, Republicans, Texans and the majority of Christians) stand at the root of all that is wrong according to our elite liberals. According to CNN’s Van Jones, white racism explains the election of Donald Trump. Listen to his learned analysis from election night 2016 as the reality of Trump’s victory was starting to sink in.

This was a whitelash. This was a whitelash against a changing country. It was a whitelash against a black president – in part. And that’s the part where the pain comes.

Now listen to this media montage from Tuesday evening as Youngkin’s victory was becoming apparent.

It’s essentially white identity politics that works for Republicans.”

“Education, which is code for, white parents don’t like the idea of teaching about race.

“The delta variant of Trumpism. In other words, Youngkin – same disease – but spreads a lot faster and can get a lot more places.”

Roundly ignored by these geniuses is who won the race for lieutenant governor in Virginia. For them it’s simply unbearable that a black Republican woman named Winsome Sears – a proud Marine veteran – became the first black person in Virginia to win statewide office. In stark contrast to the angry, divisive and dead wrong elite liberal media analysis to which we were subjected Tuesday night, here’s part of what Ms. Sears had to say:

There are some who want to divide us and we must not let that happen. They would like us to believe that we are back in 1963 when my father came. We can live where we want. We can eat where we want. We own the water fountains. We have had a black president elected not once but twice and here I am living proof. In case you haven’t noticed I am black and I have been black all my life.”

The problem for Democrats is that they can’t run on their record. When voters react to the dystopic results produced by the policies they promote – as voters did Tuesday in Virginia – all Democrats can do is pull out the race card. Stained, crumpled and dog-eared as it is, it’s all they have.

Oh…and one more thing. If Barack Obama had sounded more like Winsome Sears during his eight years, we’d be far less divided today and he’d be well on his way to being remembered as one of America’s greatest presidents.

    One of the central problems is labeling humanity as “black, white, brown, red, yellow, etc.” Human beings are human beings; no matter the color of their skin. We all have eyes, noses, lungs, ears, kidneys, etc, etc, and we breath air, eat, sleep, see, smell, you get it. The radicals of this world who wish to subjugate us all under “One World Government” cannot understand why us independent minded people would vote to stay independent. Huh. The USA has already exceeded the timeline on those nations who were Representative Republics in the course of history. Even those who are Christian and study Biblical history know a free independent God fearing group of people are finite in this world we live in. But isn’t it interesting that no matter how long it takes, that group of finite independent God fearing group; find a way to get back to an Independent Republic of freedom loving people who, by their works and character determine their destiny. BUT, America, who as flawed as those on the Left want to prosecute us as being, are the most charitable, caring, hard working, loving people on the planet. The Dems were handed a smackdown as American history has indicated before. Will they learn from it; heck no. So the cycle of good versus evil continues until that day it does not.

    Biden and Pelosi put a slightly different spin on this one. They both opined that voters are dissatisfied that the Democrats are not moving fast enough to implement their sweeping changes. You can count on liberals to completely miss the point. Could it be that the majority of Americans actually like personal choice, secure borders, lower taxes, and a president that doesn’t embarass the strongest military the world has ever seen in front of the entire human race? No, can’t be that. It must be about pace of change. Pathetic!

    • Michael+Reagan says:

      And the fact one must pass the bill before they can read the bill to know what is in it. How idiotic is that! But look at the numbers of “us” that have no clue about the issues and don’t really care to know.
      Sheeple at their best; ignorant of the wolves circling the flock.

    As a caller on Shawn’s ” twoddle ” show, simply put it this way ” They ( Republicans ) better produce ! So it will be interesting to see, I for one am not holding my breath.

    • Greg R says:

      Produce as in lower unemployment or energy independence or secure border or FREEDOM such as we had in the last administration? We had all of that and more but that wasn’t good enough for you lefties. You wanted socialism, you got it. Hows that working out for ya Hmmm?

      • Matthew says:

        Well lots of jobs out there , folks seem free to me as free as it gets anyway . Border situation is simply getting a good dose of cheap labor,keep those investors happy, that always priority ( those at top ). That fairy tale called ” Energy Independence “, it’s running around with ” Bigfoot ” who knows where and ” Socialism ” it’s hanging out with the ” Chupa Cabra ” some where. Repeat something enough and folks start believing, oldest trick in the book, and seems to be very effective. Americans are busy going on strike , how dare they expect a bigger piece of the pie , where do they think they are USA.

    • Matthew E says:

      Well I’m just repeating what caller said , no such thing as energy independence ( Another Big Lie ) just sounds good. The border,well we need lots of cheap labor to fill all those unfilled jobs out there, Corpt America is looking forward to that. The tap will be slowly turned off sooner than later. American workers are busy striking, how dare they expect more , the nerve of some folks.What Socialism ? I haven’t seen it ,is it sorta like the ” Chupa cabra ” or ” Big Foot ” ? In the last administration there never was anything more than talk on infrastructure plan , no Healthcare improvements , middle class continued shrinking, crime was steady on the rise ,the list goes on and on, but if folks thought things were good fine with me. I do know if you repeat stuff enough people start believing, oldest trick in the book. Some great examples; trickle down economics ( oldie but goodie ) , CRT , ” Socialism ” , ( my personal favorite) “, it’s really working well, folks can’t get enough of that, Energy Independents ” is a great one as well, and this list could go on as well. You have to wonder why these talking points as they are called are repeated over and over and over , it’s simply madness . It gets the desired results that is the purpose.

    This opinion piece describes concisely why the Left (politicians and their propagandists) are desperately hanging on to racism as the main political tool in the toolbox. There are two messages in Paul’s essay that really made me think about how the racism argument continues to be relevant in our great country. He mentions that “these people simply cannot understand how voters are not buying what they are selling”. This is the mindset of a sales department trying to sell a product that people do not want, so the sales staff becomes more and more aggressive, instead of marketing the product. The big difference in selling and marketing is that selling is trying to get someone to buy the product you have; whereas, marketing is to alter the product to conform to what people want. They do not seem to understand this difference, and continue to ram this very distasteful racism product down our throats. In the last paragraph, he states the fact that former President Obama had an opportunity to be one of our most consequential presidents. If only he had used this golden opportunity to promote “e pluribus unum” our national motto (out of many, one), but instead, he left office with a more divided country than when he was inaugurated. How sad!

    Another example of America gone horribly wrong is the atrocity that is the Kyle whitenhouse trial. As usual, he has been convicted by the media and the talking heads that pass for reporters without a clue about what really happened. He was a poster boy for white supremacists in the photo they trotted out of a backwards-hat wearing, assault-rifle wielding assassin with a thirst for blood. But the video shows the truth and proves the idiots wrong again, as does the testimony of one of the victims. Kyle shot in self-defense. White supremacy had absolutely nothing to do with it except for in the minds of the leftists because it fits the narrative. He may have made a bad decision to go there to begin with, but he was clearly disgusted with the situation in America as he perceived it, as are 2/3 of the country! He chose to act to defend his side, and would have likely died had he not fired his gun. However, an aquittal will probably be met with the same results as any previous not-guilty verdict of police trials. I’m not sure how far down this dark, twisted path we are gonna drive this country until we decide to make a U-turn!! Hopefully it will be before we reach the cliff!
