I don’t know what’s gotten into Democrats these days, and I don’t just mean all the ones who keep endorsing acting like a torch-bearing mob in an old Frankenstein movie. I mean that they used to be a lot more careful about concealing their true beliefs and intentions.
When I was young, we all knew that Democratic politicians would come home to campaign every two or six years, tell all us yokels how conservative they were and how much they were protecting us from those tax-and-spenders in Washington, then once safely reelected, go back to DC and spend like drunken sailors on a three-day shore leave. At least they respected us enough to lie to us until the election was over. But no more.
Ever since Hillary Clinton called one-fourth of Americans a basket of racist, sexist, xenophobic, Islamophobic deplorables on camera before the election, Democrats have gotten notoriously sloppy about hiding their true feelings. The election is still about four weeks away, and already, major Democratic candidates aren’t just letting the mask slip, they’re practically throwing it in our faces.
First example: last week, Tennessee Senatorial candidate Phil Bredesen was assuring voters that he will be an independent moderate in DC and not do whatever Chuck Schumer tells him to. For instance, he would have voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court (he said that just as Taylor Swift was endorsing him, becoming the latest in a long line of men to disappoint Taylor Swift.)
How inconvenient therefore that the latest undercover video expose by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas is of three Bredesen campaign officials admitting that he was lying about that because he has to attract moderate and rural voters. But rest assured, he "hates Trump," and once he gets to DC, he’ll follow the Democrat playbook “100 percent.”
Meanwhile, in the hotly-contested Arizona race to replace Sen. Jeff Flake, some 2011 video has surfaced of Democrat Krysten Sinema badmouthing her own state while speaking at a Democratic event in Texas. She accuses the state legislature of “mainstreaming hatred” for trying to enforce immigration laws that the Obama Administration refused to enforce, and calls Republicans in her state “crazy.” Which is not helpful, considering she’s running as a moderate and trying to appeal to Republican voters.
She also claims to have always respected and supported the military, but someone recently unearthed fliers distributed by an anti-war activist group she once ran, depicting our soldiers in the Middle East as skull-faced terrorists. She also once sent a fundraising email comparing the deaths of illegal immigrants trying to cross the border to the deaths of our troops in battle. Not good PR when her Republican opponent, Rep. Martha McSally, is a retired Air Force colonel with over 100 hours of combat patrol flying time in Iraq under her belt.
If Democrats are serious about retaking power, they’re going to have to look to their forebears as examples and start doing a much better job of hiding what they really think and how much contempt they feel for us hairy, unwashed voters. Frankly, if they can’t do a better job of lying to our faces, they have no business being in professional politics.
