Fighting everything has been a no win situation for Democrats. There is a long history of judgment by the Democratic Party. Erick Erickson, founder of Red State.com and The Resurgent blog, points out that Democrats began pushing the idea that “a vote for the GOP was a vote for racism” since 2000, methodically expanding the narrative through the next seven midterm and general elections. The trend continues.
“In the 2018 elections, if you vote for a Republican, you’re supporting Donald Trump. This has now become a referendum. If you want to vote for a racist in the White House, then you better vote for Republicans. But if you want to vote for Democrats and really have change, that’s where I think America is going,” former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean recently told MSNBC.
“It is worth pointing out that the tea party, not the GOP establishment, pushed the election of Nikki Haley, Tim Scott, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Allen West, and others. Before them, the progenitors of the tea party rallied to a guy like Bobby Jindal,” Mr. Erickson writes. Ms. Haley, a former governor of South Carolina and now U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, is Indian American, as is Mr. Jindal, a former governor of Louisiana. Mr. Scott, a current U.S. senator, and Mr. West, a former House member, are black. Mr. Cruz and Mr. Rubio are both Cuban-American members of the Senate. “But, of course, we should concede that the white nationalists and the President’s bungling of Charlottesville make this all easier for Dean to say and the media to repeat. It just does not make it true and is further evidence the Democrats learned nothing from 2016,” Mr. Erickson concludes.
Democrats will lose big in 2018.
