Watching the long slog of the second night of the Democrats’ convention, a famous Winston Churchill line came to mind: “Take this pudding away — it has no theme!”
Old and young, progressive and super progressive, left and far left, black, white, Asian, Latino, Native American — they all had something to say. But if there was a theme running through the night, I couldn’t find it.
Oh, yes, Donald Trump bad, got that. Really, really bad. OK, got that, too.
Then what? What do Democrats stand for and, more to the point, what are they promising voters if they gain the White House? I honestly don’t know.
I do know that, once again, they failed to address the violence erupting across the country, as if it isn’t happening. Or maybe they are afraid to criticize it because it will somehow come off as pro-police, which would infuriate the Black Lives Matter movement the party is embracing.
For whatever reason, Dems are ceding a huge issue to Trump, one that resonates across income, race and geographic boundaries. Public safety is a civil right and it matters to everyone.
That’s just one of many areas where it sometimes feels as if the Dems are keeping their plans secret and will spring them on us after the election. More likely, they haven’t yet made up their minds and the agenda, to put it kindly, is still a work in progress as they sort out their ideological differences.
It’s a polite civil war, but it’s war nonetheless over the soul of the party. Just as it was four years ago, the Bernie Sanders wing is ascendant but has been defeated once again.
Speaking of which, has anybody seen Hillary Clinton? Have you heard her name mentioned?
Her husband got to speak, but hardly a prime spot, in the first hour. Given the #MeToo issues around the ex-president, the spot, the five minutes allotted, the narrow criticism of Trump, all of it had the odor of a compromise between those who wanted to feature him and those who wanted to banish him. It looked as if he had been put in a corner and told to sit up straight.
Normally, those issues would be settled by the nominee, whose victory puts the party under his command. But that hasn’t happened because the man who beat Sanders is not in full command of his own faculties.
Joe Biden, I accept as a fact, is a decent enough guy whose life story of tragedy and resilience is admirable. The testimonials the first two nights about his consoling others in their grief are truly touching.
But that Joe Biden is not the same man who is now the official nominee for president. The man who finally climbed that mountain after a lifetime in Washington is greatly diminished and every live appearance he makes, even at his own convention, must terrify the handlers.
What if he wanders off script? What if he forgets where he is?
In the little family scene when his grandchildren appeared with him and his wife, Jill, after the nominating process was complete, Biden had a far-off look in his eyes — as if he wasn’t quite sure what was happening.
Almost every time you see him, Jill is there, standing next to him, holding his hand. It’s love, but she also looks like an attendant, a visiting nurse.
There is another kind of pall over the convention, too, and that is by choice. There is a constant refrain that America is fundamentally ruined by racism and all forms of bigotry. “An ingrained system of inequity,” said one speaker. “Racial inequality,” said another.
Even what should have been uplifting stories about people who desperately needed health care and got it were somehow turned upside down, that America was not doing enough to help the most vulnerable.
Nothing, absolutely nothing!
Shaun King, aka, Talcum X, swung a 180 on Biden and Harris.
“The testimonials the first two nights about his consoling others in their grief are truly touching.”
I did not watch, did they mention the part where Joe has slandered the truck driver all these years in the accident claiming he was drunk?
So what has the democraps offered since FDR?
-FDR died in his mistress ‘s bed. Wife a lesbian, never visited his grave once in the ground.
-JFK- whore dog. His initial post was in London, where he knocked up to high profile political leaders wives. Than sent to Pacific. Prior to his senate run multiple affairs. Married and still at least 8-10 mistresses in his short tenure as pres.
-Now whore dog billy, nailed the VP’s daughter in the oral office, on multiple times while Monica waited her turn and gone a semen stain on Monica’s dress-but a blow job is not sex. Multiple, multiple mistresses.
-Now gay obama-shit. His gay lovers were part of his staff and the cocaine came into the wipe house via the kitchen.
-Now pedophile Joe with advanced mental deterioration from AD and his slut VP, choice kamaslut with a mattress on her back and knee pads. She fornicated her way into and up the democrap party, just ask brown.
the democraps have noting to offer. they will not be able to rebuild the developing slum cities: chi.,nyc., shitland., minneapolis., seattle., or la.
Taxes, taxes and more taxes, big government strangulation, no prisons, no police, no middle class, no nuclear families, no jobs unless you “work” for the government. No private healthcare, shortages, no freedom of choice, no proper education, legalized pedophilia, no private businesses, no meat, no right for a firearm, no freedom of speech.
Theres more utter destruction of American culture in the end game.
How brain dead is the DNC? It allowed Elizabeth Warren to lead the discussion on Native American issues. What a blatant insult to those of us with Native American heritage.
And notice that the left on this blog has never mentioned the remarks of Pramila Jayapal (radical Squad member) that Bargain Basement Joe is “moveable.” IOW, he can be manipulated into carrying out the radical left agenda.
“As soon as we get him in the White House, and even before with these task forces that we had, we were able to significantly push Joe Biden to do things that he hadn’t signed on to before. So he is movable, he is listening and he does understand that we need turnout from young people, from folks of color,” Jayapal stated.
What is the Democrat platform: empty prisons, no police protection, especially in minority neighborhoods where the greater percentage of police budgets are spent, voter fraud by not requiring signature verification on mail in ballots, LBQXYZ indoctrination in schools starting with 5 year old kindergarteners, free everything, identity politics, massive job loss due to the Green Raw Deal, higher utility bills, free health insurance and free college even for those that sneak across our borders in the dead of night after having paid a coyote thousands of $$.
A total remake of our nation in the Marxist ideals. That’s the Democrat platform.
part of the original communist manifesto is to destroy the cities with end result in destroying the security of America. at this time a NEW gov. would be formed. Sorry folks but these plans are late 1890’s and early 1900’s.
in Dostoevsky book Brothers Karamazov he talks about the peaceful over through of a country. Simply, destroy the ability of the country to protect the countries boundaries and citizens. once gross citizen security is abolished a new COMMUNIST COUNTRY would be formed. this is the major plan of the democrap party.
