Over this past week or so, I’ve gone back and forth calling the Left either sick or amusing. That’s because, while most of the time they’re sick, there are times when they’re simply amusing. How they react to certain things such as shootings and terror attacks have been the main focus whenever I talk about them being amusing. Well, these Democrat victories in Virginia, New Jersey and New York are just as amusing.
“How is it amusing if Democrats win elections?”, you may be wondering. Well, consider what elections they’ve won. Democrats won in Virginia, New Jersey and New York in 2016. They won again this year... what a shocker.
And the amusing part is that they’re pretending this is a major victory. One writer in the New York Times titled his article: “Virginia Rejects Your Hateful Politics, Mr. Trump.”
The article begins: “Ralph Northam’s election as Virginia governor amid reportedly high turnout on Tuesday is a stinging and welcome rebuke to President Trump and white nationalism.”
Ok, what’s white nationalism got to do with anything here? This person is simply trying to use the typical Leftist tactic of tying a Republican with something they deem as “bad”. Regardless, this is honestly an intriguing and amusing article.
The article continues: “Having been nearly vanquished in the primary by Corey Stewart, an anti-immigrant conspiracy theorist who played on issues like preserving Confederate monuments, Mr. Gillespie (the loser of the gubernatorial election), at the advice of Republican leaders, took up race-baiting. His ads, featuring menacing tattooed men, accused Mr. Northam of being ‘weak on MS-13’ the gang formed by Central American immigrants in Los Angeles that now threatens Virginia suburbs…”
So they’re accusing Gillespie of race-baiting? Sure! It’s not like Democrats don’t play the race card whenever they deem it advantageous!
What? The Democrats ran an ad that featured a menacing-looking, black pick-up truck with a Confederate flag in the back and with a Gillespie bumper-sticker that appears to be hunting down and attempting to run over Hispanic children? Well… uhh… what does that have to do with race-baiting?
Honestly, it’s like the Left sometimes ANNOUNCES their hypocrisy.
But do you want to know what else is funny? Even the writer slams the Democrat victor to an extent. At one point, the article says: “Mr. Northam was a lackluster campaigner in his own right. Despite mountains of post-2016 evidence that Democrats need to present voters with an inclusive and compelling economic message, he didn’t hone his own until late in the race. Then, he lost support from the progressive wing of his party after he seemed to suggest he’d oppose sanctuary cities and, at the request of unions, omitted Justin Fairfax, his African-American running mate in the lieutenant governor’s race, from the campaign pamphlets.”
Right, three things stand out here: that “inclusive and compelling economic message” part, the part about Northam supposedly opposing sanctuary cities, and that racist act of omitting the African-American running-mate from the pamphlets. Let’s go over each one.
First, the “inclusive and compelling economic message”. Right, what exactly would that entail? An economy that works for everyone? That’s what a capitalist economy is for. That’s what we have. Everyone that has the drive to work and work very hard can become successful. Those who don’t want to do anything are the ones who are not successful. Not even in a socialist economy.
Next, the supposed “opposing sanctuary cities” part. This one is actually pretty interesting. You see, Gillespie ran “an ad that claimed Northam cast a deciding vote on Feb. 22 in favor of sanctuary cities”, according to the Daily Signal. However, Mark Krikorian said that Northam’s stance on immigration changed after that ad: “[Since] Gillespie’s ads criticizing MS-13 and sanctuary cities, Northam has now flipped and said that if some city did declare it a sanctuary, he would act to stop it if he were governor.”
Of course, this is just one guy talking. I mean, who even is this guy, anyway? Mark Krikorian, according to the Daily Signal, is an “executive director at the Center for Immigration Studies, a nonpartisan immigration research organization.”
Right, that’s fine and dandy, but just because this guy says something doesn’t make it true… unless Northam himself confirms it. You see, according to the Richmond-Times Dispatch: “In an interview… with the Norfolk TV station WAVY, Northam said for the first time that, under certain circumstances, he would sign a bill similar to the one he voted against this year, a vote that spawned a wave of ominous ads from the Gillespie campaign linking Northam to the Latino gang MS-13. ‘If that bill comes to my desk… I sure will. I’ve always been opposed to sanctuary cities. He knows that,’ Northam said of Gillespie…”
Well, that changes things. That makes me somewhat more ok with the Democrat’s victory… if he sticks to those beliefs, that is. And since what he said makes me somewhat happier, that can only make the Left somewhat less happy. I guess that’s equivalent exchange for you. My happiness about his victory rose after finding this out, and the Left’s happiness somewhat must’ve declined.
Don’t get me wrong, he’s still a Democrat and he’ll likely still vote according to what his Democrat overlords want done in Virginia. But still, this at least puts somewhat of a smile on my face after Democrat victories.
Lastly: omitting his African-American running mate from the pamphlets. Need I say more?
Now, you’ve seen the title of this article. Why is it sad for Democrats to have won in Virginia, New Jersey and New York? Because they’re pretending this is a major victory and an indicator to how 2018 will go.
They’re acting the exact same way they would’ve acted if they had won in Georgia and Montana. They would write articles that say “State X rejects your hateful politics, Mr. Trump.”
Even the NYT article I’m talking about touts this victory as something more than it really is.
The article ends with: “Mr. Gillespie’s choice to lay his principles on the altar of Trumpism made Mr. Northam’s win doubly important, as a triumph over the politics of racial division, and as a lesson for other Republicans tempted to adopt Mr. Trump’s vile tactics as their own.”
Right, of course this guy’s gonna say something like that. This Democrat win is a shocker to exactly no one. Virginia voted Democrat in 2016. They clearly didn’t learn their lesson and voted Democrat again this year. But it’s sad for them to pretend this expected victory is anything more than it really is.
A Democrat won in New Jersey - who didn’t see that coming? De Blassio was reelected as mayor of New York City - what a surprise. Virginia voted for a Democrat - I’m so shocked.
Let’s not forget that these states have been true-blue for ages. And let’s not forget REPUBLICANS WON IN GEORGIA AND MONTANA - two states where the Democrats expected landslide victories, but were absolutely destroyed in the results.
Let them believe this small victory will lead to anything more. And let them believe that this small victory should be a warning to other Republicans. The guy says this is a “lesson for other Republicans tempted to adopt Mr. Trump’s vile tactics as their own”. Vile tactics, you say? You mean how he partially funded a fake Russian dossier about his opponent… oh, wait, that was Hillary. Or maybe when he paid women to accuse his opponent of sexual harassment and assault… oh, wait, Hillary again. Oh! How about when he paid for the answers to debate questions? No, wait, that was also Hillary.
But I see what this person is writing about. He’s trying to get Republicans to not adopt Trump’s agenda and policies as their own. Hmmm, I wonder why that is. Maybe because HIS AGENDA AND POLICIES ARE VASTLY POPULAR WITH THE MAJORITY OF THE COUNTRY AND WOULD LEAD TO MOST REPUBLICANS WINNING IN MOST STATES?!
Regardless, the Democrats can have their small celebration. Their small victories. Meanwhile, the rest of the country will continue to vote for people who will passionately seek to Make America Great Again.
“But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”
