The Imminence of Self-Destruction: Five Ways the Democrat Party Screwed Themselves Over in 2016

 

BY ALEX PAUL

Although our enemies have made advances in local and state governments, their national representation is only a shadow of what it was in previous years. In fact, it seems as if we don’t need to get our hands dirty as much as we used to on the national scale.  There’s a laundry list of reasons as to what made them go “kaput”, so it wasn’t that hard to pull out five of them. So, without further ado, let’s begin.

The party’s figureheads alienated the voters they desperately needed for the 2016 election.

This one should be an obvious choice. From Hillary’s “basket of deplorables” to Obama’s confidence that he could have won a 3rd term if he was given the chance, these two Alinsky-ites did nothing but ostracize themselves from the on-the-fence voters they so desperately needed to win the election; the Democrats only had a nail or two left to hammer into America’s coffin, and this plan becoming reality hinged on Hillary claiming victory over Trump.

The party revealed one too many of its dark secrets.

On March 13th, 2016, Chairman of the National Endowment of the Arts under the Clinton administration, Bill Ivey, sent an e-mail to Hillary campaign chairman John Podesta, fearful that Trump’s ability to swoon voters through his appearances on TV would cripple the chances of Hillary making it to the Presidency.

Well, we all thought the big problem for our US democracy was Citizens United/Koch Brothers big money in politics. Silly us; turns out that money isn’t all that important if you can conflate entertainment with the electoral process. Trump masters TV, TV so-called news picks up and repeats and repeats to death this opinionated blowhard and his hairbrained ideas, free-floating discontent attaches to a seeming strongman and we’re off and running. JFK, Jr would be delighted by all this as his “George” magazine saw celebrity politics coming. The magazine struggled as it was ahead of its time but now looks prescient. George, of course, played the development pretty lightly, basically for charm and gossip, like People, but what we are dealing with now is dead serious. How does this get handled in the general? Secretary Clinton is not an entertainer, and not a celebrity in the Trump, Kardashian mold; what can she do to offset this? I’m certain the poll-directed insiders are sure things will default to policy as soon as the conventions are over, but I think not. And as I’ve mentioned, we’ve all been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry. This problem demands some serious, serious thinking – and not just poll driven, demographically-inspired messaging (bold effect added for emphasis).

Need I quote more?

The party has played division politics.

From race-baiting blacks into rioting and killing dozens of police officers around the country to fear-mongering with citizens who have ties to Mexico that Trump would deport them all, the party has done nothing but pander to minorities that “Republicans are the bad guys” and that “Democrats will totally save the little guy from being trampled by elephants”. Since the party’s target audience was deep-city dwellers, they focused almost exclusively on those areas to garner the votes they needed. Since deep-city areas occupy a smaller number of counties than smaller towns and rural communities, Trump was able to nab key votes from places such as Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Florida, and North Carolina.

Too bad donkeys aren’t that speedy.

Obama has a poor understanding of how free-enterprise capitalism works.

Both the shenanigans with Solyndra and Obamacare are prime examples of how Obama is unable to understand even the basic tenets of American capitalism. With Solyndra, he attempted to force Americans to buy inefficient, costly alternatives to energy retrieval and consumption, even when it was clear most of the populace didn’t want to use said alternatives. With Obamacare, he is essentially holding all of America at gunpoint, telling them to switch to a healthcare plan that has unrealistically-high levels of premiums and deductibles or pay unrealistically-high taxes.

Obama acted like a cowardly twig towards both the bloodshed in the Middle East and the numerous domestic terrorist attacks.

The Alinsky-ite’s most prominent downfall is how he removed virtually all American presence from Iraq. As a result, a group that could have been devastated within a month (ISIS) now controls around 25% of Iraq’s land and about half of Syria’s land. This information is the final nail in the coffin for Obama when one also considers the fact that our 44th President was apprehensive to call the atrocities in the Middle East “radical Islamic terrorism”. What’s even more frustrating is that Obama has a record of beating around the bush and refusing to refer to domestic attacks similarly to the situation in the Middle East.

Just to refresh some readers, here’s a list of every major domestic terrorist attack during the Obama administration (note that there have been many, many more besides these):

Little Rock, AR, 2009 – A black Muslim convert kills a U.S. soldier and wounds another at a recruitment center. The killer claimed to be sent from Al-Qaeda.

Fort Hood, TX, 2009 – A Major in the U.S. Army kills 13 servicemen/women and wounds 40 others. The killer is linked to Al-Qaeda.

American Embassy in Benghazi, Libya, 2012 – Terrorists pound the compound, killing 4 Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Boston, MA, 2013 – The Tsarnaev brothers attack the Boston Marathon, killing 4 people and injuring over 250 others.

New York City, NY, 2014 – A recent Islam convert attacked 4 NYPD officers with a hatchet. The perpetrator was a visitor of al-Shabaab’s and ISIS’s websites.

Garland, TX, 2015 – Two men fire upon a Muhammad Art Exhibit event; no casualties or injuries were reported.

San Bernardino, CA, 2015 – A married Muslim couple attacks a recreational center, killing 14 people and injuring 22 others. The couple was inspired by the efforts of ISIS in the Middle East

_________

Keep in mind that during the presidencies of Reagan, Bush 41, and Bush 43, only one major terrorist attack occurred; 9/11. Also, all three POTUS’s were Republican. However, it’s incredulous that there’s all this evidence that can clearly rid the world of their doubts about the Donkey’s sins, yet those still under the Democrats’ spells somehow haven’t been clued in on what’s going on. That needs to change if we’re ever going to get our country back.
