Democrats Hate America and Americans

Recently, I wrote an article expounding on the theory that Barack Obama didn’t hate America, he hated Americans.  Current events involving prominent (heck, all) Democrats, however, have given me a reason to doubt my hypothesis.  I now believe he hates both America and Americans; and at this point, looking at the slate of Democrats who seek the presidency, as well as the constant and visceral provocations of the four female morons of the idiocracy, he is not alone.
In fact, the Democratic Party (let’s just call them the “New Woke Party”) have metamorphosed from an entity concerned with politics into a religion steeped in a comprehensive creed of hatred and resentment. 
Eight years of Obama decimated the Democratic Party.  Politically, Americans are mostly center-right and during his presidency, they voted out Democrats in droves.  Yet, those of the “New Woke” choose to believe this was not because Americans didn’t support his “I hate America and Americans” domestic and foreign policies.  He simply did not move far enough to the left and that his failure was the result of him merely not hating us enough.
The New Woke creed preaches that America was created by genocide, slavery, and greed.  Unique in the world, we are a nation with no redeeming qualities.  As Barry’s pal Jeremiah Wright said, “God damn America.”  At the time he said it and Barry cheered, however, they were outliers.  Now it is Democratic Party policy that America is deserving of neither respect nor admiration, much less love. 
Therefore, you will never hear a Democrat, especially one running for president, ever say anything positive about this country or its citizenry.  The New Woke believe there is nothing positive that can be said and that all Americans who don’t believe exactly as they do are evil.
Though it was Americans who created this vile America, magnanimously, the New Woke afford us an opportunity for redemption.  But only if we accept the New Woke creed in its entirety.  Diverge even a “smidgen” (as Barry would say) and all chance of redemption will be lost – and the hatred showered upon Americans will be deserved because we had our chance.
The beauty of this is that it allows them the luxury of despising America and Americans while still pretending that they alone are taking the “high road.” 
Yet, they can’t come out and say, “Support every one of our ‘Ten Commandments of Wokeness’ or we will hate you.”  They must make it about racism, or greed, or Islamophobia, etc., anything that can be portrayed by their apostles in the media as evil. 
They want open borders, with crossing illegally no longer a criminal act, free college and healthcare for illegals, as well as driver’s licenses and sanctuary, and of course the right to vote.  Point out that this is a better deal than citizens get, and you will be labeled a racist clinging to your guns and religion with an unnatural and malicious fear of the “other.”
They advocate entirely socialized medicine and the elimination of private insurance, including employer-provided health insurance, which currently covers 158 million Americans.  Only greedy, selfish people who strive to keep the poor, poor and the sick, sick would be against that.
They plead for confiscatory taxation of the “rich,” with the definition of “rich” open to fungible interpretation, so that they can raise up the poor, feed the hungry, pay reparations to blacks, indigenous peoples, gays and also illegals, who were kept “in the shadows” by our unfair immigration policies and unreasonable insistence on borders.  Only greedy, selfish, racist bastards would be against any of that.
Federally funded and “free on demand” abortions, before, during, and after pregnancy are only opposed by misogynists and the religious right who are against women’s health, safety, and freedom.
Forgiveness of trillions of dollars in student loans is only fair because every person has a right to college, and a degree in puppetry if that’s what his “truth” tells him he should pursue.  Who could be against educating youth?
But wait!  That’s not all…
A total elimination of planes, trains, and automobiles, as well as all fossil fuels, hydroelectric, and nuclear power with power provided solely by renewables -- anyone not willing to settle for electricity a few hours a day at 10 times the cost and the total destruction of our economy clearly wants to destroy the planet and kill all the poor people in the world who of course, would suffer most if this is not immediately implemented.
Disagree with the “squad” in any way, even when right, and they have their old standby, “RACIST!”
Listen to any 1 of the 1,024 (a shout-out to Indigenous-Warren) New Woke Party candidates running for president and you would think we were all living in a dystopian hell ruled by white supremacists and corporate criminals intent on raping and pillaging their way to eternal power and wealth -- and that’s before they even start talking about Donald Trump, who in their telling is the worst human being to have ever been born of woman.
However, believe it or not, this really isn’t about Trump.  The New Woke would hate any president who stands between them and power.  Yet, we should be grateful we have a man like Trump who will fight for us as he does every day.  He may never be “politics as usual” but he will not mince words because he doesn’t care what they say.  It’s been a long time since we’ve had someone like that on our side… too long.
The New Woke Party hates America and Americans. Should Trump lose his bid for reelection in 2020 to any one of these nuts, they will surely show us just how much.

New York’s Jilted Silent Majority

Democratic support for illegal-immigrant drivers’ licenses runs counter to public opinion.

New York
Politics and law

Last month, New York became the 13th state to grant drivers’ licenses to illegal immigrants, securing a victory that liberals and open-borders advocates have fought for since Eliot Spitzer was governor. But Democrats should worry about how the debate unfolded in New York: a majority of state voters opposed the bill, including about 40 percent of surveyed Democrats, mainly because the law will confer real benefits on illegal residents, thus rewarding violators of the law. The question of voter fraud—dismissed as a canard by most on the left—raised alarms when Democrats tried to pass a bill that would have automatically registered all drivers to vote (though it required non-citizens affirmatively to opt out of voter registration). After Republican legislators called attention to the potential consequences, the bill was scuttled. As it is, a state driver’s license is all that is required for voter registration in New York, so the potential for abuse is there.
In the suburbs, stiff opposition pushed Long Island’s Democratic state senators to vote unanimously against the bill. But the legislation overcame these headwinds, a testament to the ascendant Left’s newfound power statewide, particularly in New York City. Last year, Gotham voters unseated six members of the senate’s moderate Independent Democratic Conference, replacing them with more progressive challengers. The stridency of the party’s energized urban base was, on this issue, enough to overcome the opposition of the diffuse majority. 
Advocates highlighted the modest supposed benefits that licensing illegal-alien drivers would deliver to the state budget and carriers of car insurance, but most voters remained unconvinced—presumably because their concern was less about money and more about the principles at stake. This negative reaction diverged from polls suggesting that Americans nationally have taken a more positive view of immigration since Donald Trump’s inauguration. The dissonance between country-wide polling and the conservative sentiment of deep-blue New York suggests that the national numbers on immigration may reflect the president’s unpopularity in particular rather than any fondness for illegal aliens—and that, when Trump is removed from the equation, the political middle on immigration remains significantly to the right of today’s Democratic Party.
This electoral dynamic is even more pronounced at the national level, where most leading Democrats have followed their activist base to extreme positions. Presidential candidates Bernie Sanders, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Elizabeth Warren all endorse the idea of abolishing ICE, while another competitor for the Democratic nomination, former HUD Secretary Julian Castro, has argued for mass amnesty. Castro and Warren also favor decriminalization of illegal entry into the United States. This radical trend is a recent phenomenon. Just a decade ago, the two major contenders for the Democratic nomination—Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton—tacked to the center on immigration. In The Audacity of Hope, Obama complained about the people he saw waving Mexican flags at immigration rallies, as well as his struggles communicating with non-English-speaking car mechanics. Clinton, for her part, quickly distanced herself from an earlier version of the drivers’ license law when Spitzer advanced it as an executive order.
Unlike New York Democrats, who voted on an unpopular bill, national Democrats believe their leftward shift on immigration mirrors a movement in public opinion. They believe that Trump’s immigration rhetoric fueled Americans’ sympathy on the issue. But their reasoning is flawed. They cite public opinion polls suggesting that Americans shift their attitudes leftward when conservatives hold power, and reverse their position when liberals are in control. Though polling has captured real dissatisfaction with the president’s approach to immigration, it has little to say about what policies voters would support.
The battle over New York’s drivers’ license bill suggests that most voters have not followed elite Democrats to the far left on immigration. Whether this chasm harms the eventual Democratic nominee in 2020 remains to be seen—but that nominee should keep in mind that taking an extreme position on the issue is not a strategy for broad popularity.
