A new pattern seems to be emerging in the Democrat repertoire of endless, failed attempts to destroy Donald Trump and his mass of everyday American supporters. They want their candidates to move to the imaginary “middle” by claiming they are against Socialism.
Pardon me if I don’t trust Democrats who now say they don’t like Socialism. Until now, Carville and Matthews haven’t cared if their candidates were Socialists, because most of them are. They just don’t want them to say so.
As long as Democrats pretend to believe in the basic principles on which our country was founded, such as free markets, individual freedom, personal responsibility and private property, Carville and company are happy to ignore the reality that they are on the train that is speeding in the opposite direction.
Where were they during the 8 years of the previous administration and the 3 years of the Trump administration? Rather than applauding Trump’s phenomenal success with rolling back his predecessor’s blatant socialist policies, they were hellbent on removing him. Did they just forget to tell us that they’re not socialists? What is most surprising is that they expect to be believed now.
Much of this professed love for freedom and the flag is probably just a last ditch effort to clamp down on the momentum of avowed socialist, Bernie Sanders. Cheating, as they did the last time, may not work this time.
Carville also says in no uncertain terms that for him, it’s all about power. If Bernie becomes the nominee, he’ll still vote for Sanders the Socialist, over Trump, the anti-Socialist. This makes it patently clear that he doesn’t really care what Democrat candidates believe, so long as they say what Americans want to hear.
How reminiscent of Joy Behar, when she lamented that Beto O’Rourke should not have said that he wanted to take your guns. She advised that he should have waited until he got elected, and then, just take them.
It is no longer surprising that Carville wants to stop the extraordinary successes of Donald Trump in order to wrest power back for a party which he just described as “Losing our damn minds.”
As awful as it has been to see what Leftists really believe and who they really are, it is more dangerous to us all when they lie about it. Democrat strategists know that, and that’s why they are now trying to get their motley crew of candidates to stop sounding like the Socialists and Communists they are.
Me thinks they protest too much. Or, as Barzini said in The Godfather, a film that provides wisdom for almost any occasion, “After all… we are not Communists”.
