The Democrats’ Civil War

3 minute read

July 12, 2019

I wrote yesterday about the Democrats’ favorite smear tactic:  accusing anyone who criticizes them or disagrees with their failed policies of being a “racist” (here’s the latest example of responding to detailed, substantive criticism by yelling “racism.”)

But all of a sudden, that worn-out leftist tactic is turning around and biting them.  And it appears that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi doesn’t like it when her favorite attack dog sinks its fangs into her fetlock. 

Just days after she accused people who think there should be a citizenship question on the Census form of “wanting to make America white again” (FYI: a new Harvard/Harris poll found that that group of white supremacists covers 67% of registered voters, including 59% of blacks and 55% of Hispanics), she was accused of favoring the white bread over the brown bread herself.  

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is fast becoming the raspberry seed in Pelosi’s wisdom tooth, tweeted that the Speaker’s attempts to corral her four ultra-left female freshmen members was motivated by her disrespect for “newly elected women of color.”  And it gets worse from there:

AOC’s chief of staff (some say, election Svengali) Saikat Chakrabarti upped the ante by attacking Democrats who supported a compromise border aid bill as throwbacks to the Jim Crow era.  Chakrabarti tweeted that they were the “New Southern Democrats,” and they “certainly seem hell bent to do (to) black and brown people today what the old Southern Democrats did in the ‘40s.” 

That so enraged the Blue Dogs that they fired back, with Missouri Rep. Lacy Clay (a member of the Congressional Black Caucus) calling the use of the race card when the leftists don’t get their way “weak” and “unbelievable,” and Chakrabarti “juvenile” and “ignorant.”

Pelosi had to hold a closed-door meeting to tell her angry colleagues to keep their in-fighting private and off of Twitter (good luck: Twitter is virtually AOC’s entire constituency.  If she didn’t tweet constantly, she might not exist at all.)  As to all the accusations of racism suddenly being hurled at her own side, she told the media, “I’m not going to be discussing it any further. I said what I’m going to say.”

Oh, but I think she’s going to find that in the world she and her fellow “regressives” have created, you can no longer say you’re simply not going to comment once someone has started calling you a racist.  Remember, due process is obsolete.  No matter how bogus the charge, once you’re branded, it’s true until you prove you're innocent – and you can never prove that because every denial is treated as more proof that you simply don’t recognize your own white privilege. 

No, she might not be interested in the weaponization of racism charges, but having gleefully engaged in it herself, she can’t dodge it when it comes for her.  The Democratic Party was already sliding into a civil war between old-style liberals and the young socialist radicals.  Well, the radicals just fired the first shots on Fort Sumter (or Fort Pelosi), except they’ve declared the old-line liberals to be the new racist Confederacy.

Unlike the first Civil War, Republicans won’t have to fight Democrats to free the slaves.  We can just sit back and watch this one as spectators. John Hinderaker at the Powerline blog analyzes the two warring sides and reveals how he’s looking forward to that epic bloodletting.

Who knows which side will prevail in the Democrats’ Civil War?  Either way, it won’t be good for the Party. But someday, it will make one heck of a Ken Burns miniseries on PBS.

    The good Lord has a talent for turning our enemies against each other. In Chronicles, it talks about how He created confusion among the enemy and they ended up attacking and killing each other. Jehoshaphat's army did not even have to fight them - they just stood back and watched. However, the Lord gave them very specific directions. Humble yourselves, pray, and give praise to the one and only God of heaven and earth. They did this - and He did the rest. There is a definite lesson here.

    In my day to day activities around the country I never see any evidence of racism except that spewed by the democrats and the media. When will the American citizens wake up and understand these fake accusations and propaganda are pure political BS. The left's continuous effort to rip away at the American cultural fabric is unrelenting and the media are their cheerleaders.

These people are killing their party with fighting among themselves and the hatred they spew towards EVERYBODY, including members of their own party! what this is doing is, any democrat with an ounce of humanity and love within their being...will get in that booth and vote for the other side...
