Oh, NOW you want to “avoid a culture war”?

So Democrats are angry that Trump keeps throwing them off of their new “Better Deal” campaign with flareups about social issues. They’re worried that things like transsexual bathrooms are proving to be unpopular with voters. They’re worried that the Alt-Right and the Alt-Light are stretching the Overton Window wider than the southern border. The linked article notes…

” Whether it was his response to the Charlottesville white nationalist march or his condemnation of NFL players who knelt during the anthem to protest police brutality, Trump forced Democrats onto the battlefield of his choosing.”

Maybe the Democrats should have thought this through a little better before grabbing their pile of chips and going all-in on Black Lives Matter, gender-is-a-spectrum, and  “So DIE already, whitey”.

    We have both party establishments deciding that they can ignore the working class and play to the donors, the media and the enraged dependent classes.

    If Gillespie wins , watch for major movement in concept.

    The left-libertarians and RINOs are none too pleased either. All of their water-carrying for the left has been for naught.

    The articles’s last line – “We are focused like a laser-beam on growing the economy and doing it in a way that creates more shared prosperity” – still smacks of “spread the wealth” via socialism. They still have not learned that Americans want unfettered opportunity and individual merit to reap rewards. Good. Let them stay unschooled.

    I had more of a sense that the whole article was rather disjointed, and that’s how the dems are today.

    Interestingly, we were more just depressed when Romney lost. It had seemed SUCH a good opportunity to dump Obummer – and Romney failed. I don’t think there was anywhere near as much eating-of-one’s-own, but then perhaps we just didn’t see the way forward. Certainly SINCE Trump’s victory there has been much eating-of-our-own, and the losers of that fight are now worried about their seats (or have given up – like Flake).

    This article, or one based on it, crossed my Facebook feed a couple days ago. I had a similar reaction as you.
