‘We Can See Through That’

Posted on | June 25, 2020 | Comments Off on ‘We Can See Through That’

Glenn Reynolds calls attention to a feature article about black Democrats in Michigan that is an eye-opening glimpse into 2020:

“We look at Joe Biden and see more of the same. It’s about the era he came up. It’s about his identity—he’s a rich, old white man. What are his credentials to us, other than Obama picking him? It’s nice that he worked with Obama. But let’s keep it real: That was a political calculation. Obama thought he needed a white man to get elected, just like Biden thinks he needs a Black woman to get elected. We can see through that.”

Even though all of the people interviewed are partisan loyalists who will vote Democrat no matter what, at the same time they are all profoundly convinced that Donald Trump will be re-elected.

And this is good news. What it means is that the cynical calculations of white liberals, who have built their careers on a strategy of obtaining political power by pandering to black voters, have become transparent to the voters to whom they pander. That’s very bad news for Democrats.

More bad news for Democrats: 16-term New York Democrat Rep. Elliott Engel has apparently lost to primary challenger Jamaal Bowman:

Over the last few weeks, Engel received high-profile endorsements from Democratic establishment figures, including from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. . . .
On the other hand, Bowman boasted endorsements from far-left politicians, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), whose 2018 primary upset occurred in the neighboring district, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

See? Now they’re going after the Jews. It was one thing, perhaps, when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took out the Irish Catholic Joe Crowley, but for Democrat primary voters to declare, in effect, that Jews are no longer eligible for Congress? Oh, that’s gonna hurt. It’s gonna hurt bad.
