Democrats are building a terrifying platform as they embrace hyper-leftism

Published

on

The biggest fear of Republicans following the 2008 election was that President Obama and his party’s control of the House and Senate would mean socialism was going to quickly manifest into laws. We were given Obamacare as the major Democratic “victory” during their two years of control, and at the time it seemed horrible.

Compared to the direction the Democratic Party is heading now as we prepare for the 2020 election season, Obamacare now seems mild compared to the radical progressive ideas being floated by candidates. They don’t just want to propel us into socialism. They have their sights set even further to the left.

If conservatives just a few months ago were asked to create a parody of the Democratic platform, it wouldn’t look much different from the actual platform the Democrats are creating.

Let’s be clear. Words matter, as the left is wont to say. Their own words are striking such dangerous chords, it’s hard to imagine a scenario in which they could possibly walk them back. It’s standard operating procedure for candidates, particularly presidential candidates, to push to the extremes as they try to win their party’s nomination, then to dial it back towards the center when they’re in the general election. But the extremes Democratic candidates like Senators Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Elizabeth Warren are pushing are so far to the left, even “dialing it back” would only bring them into the far-left zone of socialism. They’ve gone so far to the left with their proposals that anything resembling a moderate proposal will seem alien to their followers.

In other words, they’ve pushed well beyond the limits of pragmatic leftism and entered the fantasy world of hyper-leftism.

It isn’t just the candidates. Lesser politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are leading the charge to convince Democratic voters their place in a near-future America is one that unites the nation in suffering. They’re pitching their ideas as essentially forcing successful people to share the wealth, but the actual results of their policies, if ever implemented, would be dragging every American into a collective state of servitude. Only the elite leftists who clothe themselves in a protective coating of their sheep-like followers will go unscathed by these destructive policies.

I don’t want to go into specifics about Medicare-for-All, 90% tax rates, gun confiscations, late-term abortions, open borders, or any of the other ludicrous concepts the hyper-leftists are pushing because I want you to put on the lens of discernment regarding all of their policies. Conservatives will fight the individual policy proposals that are clearly reprehensible, but it’s important that more Americans make themselves aware of the other end of the Democrats’ platform spectrum. The obviously insane proposals should worry us, but it’s the subtle planting of hyper-leftist seeds that concern me even more.

For example, it’s easy to overlook the dangers of the Democrats’ proposed beefing up of border security by improving technology and increasing personnel numbers at ports of entry. They’re even recommending adding more ports of entry to make them more accessible to those traveling across the border legally. On the surface, these may seem like good ideas and at worst, they’re simply attempts by Democrats to pretend they’re tough on border security while denying us a border wall. But if we dig a little deeper, we’ll see that these proposals have multiple dangers most Americans will overlook.

I’ll use a football analogy to illustrate this point. Imagine if a head coach announces the week before a game that his defensive gameplan is to shut down the opposing team’s best receiving by triple-covering him. He’s going to put his two best cornerbacks and the free safety on this receiver at all times. What will the opposing team do? They’ll prepare to throw to other open receivers knowing there’s no way to triple-cover one receiver without leaving others wide open.

The Democrats’ border security plan is similar. They’re saying we should put all of our border security money and efforts into protecting the ports of entry. They’re also declaring they will not allow for a border wall or other improvements of security open areas because they’re stacking the ports of entry with as much security as they can. The opposing team, in this case represented by illegal immigrants, drug smugglers, criminals, and possibly even terrorists, will read what the Democrats are proposing as a prompt to establish more routes in the vast unprotected areas along the border.

Most conservatives are so focused on Democrats blocking the wall, they’re missing the dangers of their actual border security proposals.

We need to apply this same lens of discernment to all policies coming from the left. This wasn’t always the case. In fact, this is a relatively new development, considering most Democrats favored real border security efforts just a decade ago.

It’s time to not only rail against the obvious injections of hyper-leftism into the Democratic Party but to also recognizing the more subtle attempts to subvert our rights, destroy our sovereignty, and fundamentally transform this nation into a globalist hub of misery to be shared with the rest of the world.

Conservatives once feared what Democrats would do in the future, but those fears are being realized in dramatic fashion today. This new breed of Democrats make the Obamas and the Clintons seem quite moderate. This new breed of Democrats are an existential threat to the nation itself.

Snopes downgrades truth about Beto’s arrests to ‘mostly true’ because a meme got his band’s name wrong

Snopes downgrades truth about Betos arrests to mostly true because a meme got his bands name wrong

Fact checkers are all the rage in the age of fake news. Unfortunately, all of the major fact checkers are left leaning at best, downright progressive at worst. That’s why I make it part of my daily routine to check the checkers to see what they spun today. This latest installment is minor in the whole scheme of things, but it highlights the intense need to protect Democrats whenever possible.

Snopes took on the task of fact checking the following statement:

Beto O’Rourke was in a band called the El Paso Pussycats and was arrested at least twice in the 1990s.

This is true. Beto was arrested twice, which makes him an ideal candidate for the party of lawlessness and disorder. But Snopes, in their certified fact checking wisdom, decided to pick the statement about the arrests that included the name of his band. The statement they chose had the wrong name for the band, using their album name instead. This was enough for them to downgrade the statement from “True” to “Mostly True.”

Not a big deal, right? Actually, it’s bigger than one might think. When people search for Beto and look only for things that are true about him, they will not be shown information about his arrests. The site could have picked literally any other claim about the arrests to fact-check, but had to dig deep to find an internet meme from his failed Senatorial bid last year in order to find one with a statement that included something incorrect in it.

Beto ORourke Arrest

You’ll notice they made sure to mention that both charges were dismissed. The circumstances behind the dismissals seemed to do nothing to negate the crimes he actually committed.

This is just another example of the “fact-checker” running cover for a Democrat they like. The meat of the fact, Beto’s arrests, won’t be found on this site as “True” because they were selective in how they wanted to frame this narrative.

Who is the current moneyline favorite for the Democratic nomination?

Who is the current moneyline favorite for the Democratic nomination

An interesting metric to analyze politics is viewing the moneyline. In fact, online bookies are more accurate at predicting major elections than the partisan hack, Nate Silver and his FiveThirtyEight, who incorrectly guessed every tight Senate race except for the shady Arizona race. But the odd makers spend their time doing their analysis because there is money to be lost if they do poorly. So let’s take a look at one key metric and explore the reasoning as to why.

The lowest tier are the candidates so far out, that they don’t have a moneyline, even when speculated names do. This tier includes Jay Inslee, Pete Buttigieg, and Wayne Messam. Safe to assume that this metric gives these people less of a chance than candidates who have confirmed they aren’t running.

The second lowest tier are the longshots. These candidates range from John Hickenlooper through Corey Booker. These candidates are either not big faces in the Democratic spotlight or are at a serious disadvantage because they have been crowded out of their base. The same could be said about Elizabeth Warren, but she has a devoted core and the potential to make gains when the debates are in full swing.

The next tier are the vultures. Elizabeth Warren, Tulsi Gabbard, and Amy Klobachar need death to survive, metaphorically speaking. The vultures have their sights on a clear target: Joe Biden. If they can feast on his corpse, they’ll survive. But perhaps its Bernie’s corpse they should be gazing upon instead. In truth, I think Yang is more dark horse than vulture, but both appear dark on the outside.

Alas, we have our favorites. Beto O’Rourke, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Kamala Harris, our current frontrunner by this metric. These candidates have the most money, intersectionality points in the case of Harris, ability to win superdelegates as it currently stands, and name recognition. It’s obvious why, at a glance one would rank these names at the top. Under the surface, they also have the most stable base within the Democrat party. Don’t rely too much on polling which will fluctuate like the wind. Kamala Harris could win black vote in the south while the three other white male favorites vie for the northern swathes of the country. And the odds are almost a year out. They too will fluctuate, but I believe the moneyline accurately gives us a picture of our current frontrunners.

Even in New York, more people favor President Trump than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Even in New York more people favor President Trump than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

She’s a media darling. She’s the leader of the hyper-leftist new Democratic revolution. She’s a creation of one of the most powerful and dangerous political organizations in America. And now, she’s having trouble getting people to like her.

According to a new Sienna College poll in New York, a mere 31% of respondents view Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez favorably. Her numbers are worse than other New York politicians, including Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Senator Chuck Schumer, and Governor Andrew Cuomo. Compared to the President, her net difference numbers are better at -13 compared to -24 for the President, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that more people know and like the President with 36% viewing him favorably.

My Take

There’s no reason for her to be getting the attention she’s getting. Being a freshman Congresswoman means she has very little say in what actually happens in DC. But it’s not her status or her votes that matter. What makes her dangerous is the way she’s molding the minds of the impressionable leftists who refuse to pick up a calculator or put pen to paper about her outrageous proposals.

She’s the worst type of politician, one who works with the spotlight instead of focusing on educating people about what she’s doing on their behalf and how they can help. I remember when the biggest plea by those in Congress was for their constituents to help them convince their Senators to do the right thing. Now, it’s all about me, me, me; the narcissism of this new breed of politicians is striking.

The more the nation learns about AOC and her insane ideas, the less they’ll like her. We need this to happen. We need Americans to wake up to the truckloads of manure she’s trying to shovel our way. Socialism needs to be stopped immediately.
