Have you ever found yourself in a situation in which you were hit on the head and felt like you might have lost brain cells as a result? Regardless of the way in which you hit your head, chances are, you still have more brain cells than the entire Democrat field and those who watched the Democrat debates after they were over.
That’s how embarrassingly stupid the first Democrat debate was, which is what we will mostly be focusing on. Although, I don’t know why I was expecting anything else from them.
Let’s begin with Señor Robert Francis O’Rourke when he somehow managed to avoid answering a question relating to taxes in two different languages.
Early on in the debate, moderator Savannah Guthrie asked O’Rourke: “Some Democrats want marginal, individual tax rate of 70% of the very highest earners, those making more than $10 million a year. Would you support that, and if not, what would be your top individual rate?”
To which Robert responded: “This economy has got to work for everyone, and right now, we know that it isn’t. And it’s gonna take all of us coming together to make sure that it does.” That was what he said in English, which 1) entirely avoided the question and 2) was a complete lie, considering we are in an economic boom and minorities are experiencing record-low unemployment rates that have been steady during Trump’s administration thus far.
Then, despite being limited on time, Robert said this in Spanish (and Spanish that wasn’t even entirely grammatically correct): “We need to include every person in the success of this economy. But if we want to do that, we have to include every person in our democracy. Every vote needs representation and every voice needs to be heard.”
Again, entirely avoiding the question, but in a uniquely dumb manner that even liberal late night hosts made fun of.
Let me remind you that the question asked had to do with taxing the rich extreme rates. What reason does Robert have to reply (without even answering the question at all) in both English and Spanish? It’s quite clear to anyone even half-way paying attention that the guy was simply pandering to the Hispanic vote by basically saying: “Hey, look, I can speak Spanish too!” The only thing that would’ve completed that hysterical moment was if he was holding Uno cards while he was saying that.
And while there may be others who disagree with me on this, I find this not only embarrassing for the guy but also kind of insulting. As a Hispanic person, I’m not going to be wooed by someone who happens to know some Spanish (again, he didn’t even speak it perfectly well either). I’m especially not going to be wooed by someone who manages to avoid answering a question in two different languages.
Granted, I never had any plans to vote for O’Rourke at any capacity and fully plan on voting for President Trump come the 2020 election, but this was outright asinine.
But perhaps not quite as asinine as Julian Castro saying that biological men who transition to (looking) female ought to have the right to an abortion.
For some context, NBC News’ Lester Holt had asked the actual Hispanic (and actual lunatic): “Secretary Castro, this one is for you. All of you on stage support a woman’s right to an abortion. You all support some version of a government health care option. Would your plan cover abortion Mr. Secretary?”
Castro replied: “Yes, it would. I don’t believe only in reproductive freedom, I believe in reproductive justice. And, you know, what that means is that just because a woman – or let’s not also forget someone in the trans community, a trans female, is poor, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have the right to exercise that right to choose. And so I absolutely would cover the right to have an abortion.”
Another kind of pandering, particularly because he stopped to also include transgender people. And like O’Rourke’s pandering, this one also doesn’t make any sense (although it does make sense in the mind of a lunatic Leftist who is this out of touch with reality).
In case Secretary Castro has forgotten his 3rd grade science class, MEN CAN’T GET PREGNANT! It doesn’t matter if a man with gender dysphoria goes through the process of mutilating his body to look like a woman’s, he still cannot biologically get pregnant because he lacks the reproductive equipment to do so. A man may say he is a woman and may even transition into having the body of a woman, but that does not include the transfer of a womb into the new body and the removal of the previous reproductive system.
Men can’t get pregnant, and as a result, can also not get an abortion. It literally makes zero sense for Castro to even say this, or for anyone to say this for that matter. And these people think Trump isn’t fit to serve? This guy literally thinks men can get pregnant! Either that or he’s simply trying to pander to out-of-their-minds politically-correct morons in the audience who will say: “Yaaaas! Slay, queen!” entirely unironically. I honestly hope it’s the latter because I would hate for someone that mentally deranged to be within 10 feet of any position of power as grand as the Presidency.
Overall, the Democrat debates have proven that the entire field of Democrat candidates is filled with shameless panderers at best and outright deranged people at worst. None of them have proven to mainstream America that they are in any way sane, and that goes beyond the ridiculous (and dangerous) desire to confiscate every gun in America and allow for literally unrestricted abortions. While those two issues demonstrate how out of touch they are with America, it’s the shameless pandering and the open lunacy that tells us what they are all about.
Even if I had been a registered Democrat, voted for Hillary in 2016 and despised Trump, I would seriously doubt I would be willing to support any of these people. And I think there are plenty of people out there who think similarly. I mean, O’Rourke is polling at roughly 3%, Castro at less than 1 and everyone else is equally as stupid or deranged.
Sure, neither of the two will likely be the Democrat nominee to challenge Trump, but if this is what the Left has to offer, they really do need the tech giants to come in and rig the elections for them because otherwise, Trump would likely win all but one state ala Ronald Reagan.
