The Democratic Party just doesn’t get it that constantly is pushing forward identity politics will bring on their own total demise. The American people have gotten sick of the fact of these socialists gaining control of the Democrat Party pinpointing African Americans, Hispanics, gays, unmarried women and the young for the prime purpose of creating a class warfare condition of these groups against everybody else. The majority of the American people see right through all this now and they are sick of it and President-elect Trump has picked it up perfectly by stressing the fact that he was running for all Americans. Our Forefathers for sure did not establish this great country of ours to pinpoint various groups of people against each other which is the doctrine of socialism. It’s not as though the groups that the Democrats have singled out have seen their lives improve from the promises of the Democratic Party, it has most of the time been all smoke and mirrors.
The following was posted by Charles Krauthammer, published by the National Review: “Moreover, the legitimation of identity politics by the Democrats has finally come back to bite them. Trump managed to read, then mobilize, the white working class and to endow it with political self-consciousness. What he voiced on their behalf was the unspoken complaint of decades: Why not us? All these other groups, up to and including the relatively tiny population of transgender people, receive benefits, special attention, and cultural approbation, yet we are left out in the cold, neglected and condescended to as both our social status and our economic conditions decline.”
“To be sure, ethnic appeal has been part of American politics forever. But the Hillary Clinton campaign was its reductio ad absurdum: all segmented group appeal, no message. Even Bernie Sanders is urging Democrats to “go beyond identity politics” if they are ever to appeal again to the working class.”
Its the working class people of America that have been neglected to move ahead with the constant drum-beat of higher taxation and never-ending new regulations being put on employers which means its a standstill condition for the American worker while the groups mentioned above are constantly catered too for their vote by whatever gimmick the Democrats have aspired to in the past. Well the bulk of the American people are sick of it as shown in this last presidential election. I have not seen any evidence from all the news out there that the Democratic Party has learned anything of how despised identity politics has become. Just look at the people they have again put in as their leaders and the people they are leaning to. Instead of learning from it the Democrats are lining up to discredit Trump and his presidency. I guess they have forgotten there is another election in only two years and most of the seats that are up for grabs are for Democrats. Yes, their total demise is approaching from the lessons not learned.
