From the Observer:
On February 2, Sen. Bernie Sanders spoke at the 2017 Sister Giant Conference in Washington D.C. In his speech, he voiced his harshest criticism of the Democratic establishment since his presidential campaign.
“Let me suggest to you, and some will disagree with me and that’s okay, too. But let me suggest to you that what happened on November 8th. Trump’s victory was not a victory for Trump or his ideology. It was a gross political failure of the Democratic Party,” said Sanders, who went on to explain his perspective on why Donald Trump won and where the Democratic Party has gone astray.
“Let me also tell you something again where people may disagree with me. If you think everyone who voted for Donald Trump is a racist or a sexist or a homophobe, you would be dead wrong,” he said. “Many of those folks—and I met them all over this country—are hard-working, decent people, but they are asking questions like how does it happen I am working longer hours for lower wages? How does it happen that almost all of the new income and wealth in this country is going to the top one percent? How does it happen that as a single mother I cannot afford childcare for my baby? How does it happen that my kids will in all likelihood have a lower standard living than I will, and they’re leaving school deeply in debt? How does it happen that I’m working for 9 bucks an hour and nobody gives a damn about whether or not I can put food on the table or pay my rent? How does it happen that the crooks on Wall Street destroy the economy, yet kids who smoke marijuana get prosecuted, but the CEOs on Wall Street who destroyed the lives of millions of people, not one prosecution of a Wall Street executive, how does that happen?”
Bernie is partially correct in his assessment. However, he discounts the reality that 8 years of failed leadership by Obama created the environment for Donald Trump to win the presidency. Secondly, Clinton’s criminality was exposed. Thirdly, the DNC’s corruption was exposed. Fourth, the media’s complicity was exposed.
Regardless who their candidate was, Democrats promised more open borders, refusal to acknowledge terrorism by jihadis, more shitty ObamaCare, more government intrusion into every aspect of our lives, more bullshit green energy ripoffs, more socialism, more homo agenda, more identity politics, more racism, more pandering to illegals, more embracing of immigrants from third world shitholes, more vilification of cops, more erosion of our Constitutional Rights, and basically screw American citizens… just to name a few.
Looking back, Donald Trump was the only candidate who could have won against the Clinton-Media cabal. No other republican candidate had the balls to call out the crookedness of the Left. Ted Cruz may have been the only other candidate with a shot but I doubt he would have been able to shout down the Left like Trump did.
In the end, the reason the Democrats/Progressives/Socialists/Communists keep losing is because Americans have woken up to the crookedness of the left and their complete disdain of Americans and American values. The Democrats have lost over 1,000 elected offices across the country since 2010 and continue doing so. The Democrats basically campaign on “we suck but vote for us anyway because republicans are evil”. The voters don’t believe it. In response to the electorates’ decisions the left insult them as uninformed cretins along with adolescent protests and proclamations. As they continue to melt down support for our side continues to grow. Hopefully, the republicans (the party of stupid) will resist the urge to pander to the media and act like adults since they hold all the reins now. First and foremost they need to muzzle the RINOs bent on behaving like democrats at the behest of their Uniparty donors. At the same time, Team Trump simply needs to enforce the laws already on the books and show America what winning feels like with adults in charge.
Winning feels good, especially since the Left is screaming.
