So, a couple of weeks ago I read a diary from a commentator who complained that Kos and many of this blog were in effect shitting on and blaming working people for Trump.
Then a couple of weeks later this same author stating that us evil no good Daily Kos folks were bashing the poor for Trump…
This is complete nonsense……Speaking for me I am not blaming poor people for anything. I’ve been poor and used government assistance in my youth and am keenly aware how instrumental that help was in keeping food on our table.
I’m not blaming working people for anything either. I am now 60 and work 2 jobs while my wife works and manages a home where our youngest son who suffers with PTSD has come back home while he retrains for a different career field.
I am not alone in America and I think this trend will worsen under President Trump. But the people who are causing 99% of this pain are House and Senate GOP members.
It’s not President Obama or the Democrats…..
These Granny starving, hateful assholes are in power because a large portion of the nation is fearful, racist, mean and hateful.
I am in fact shitting all over the Trump voters because they voted for a Racist, Misogynist, Xenophobe and incompetent wanna be fascist……I don’t care that some of them voted for Democrats for the last 100 years…BFD…In November they voted for the Orange Skinned Gropenfuhrer….
How hard they are working is immaterial….Their income is Immaterial…. They could see the reality of what A Trump presidency would bring and they still pulled the lever for him….
Racism and fear won out over hope and optimism….
These people that the earlier diarist attempted to defend are accountable for that vote and every time they get fucked by the guy they voted for we Democrats need to remind them…Every time…Yep it means you get to tell Aunt Edna that because she voted for the Racist loon she no longer has health insurance…..
Same for Uncle Billy Bob when he suddenly has no coverage for Black Lung…..He needs to know and understand he did this to himself. He needs to know that his hate of the Black Muslim Kenyan in the WH is the reason he’ll probably die….
I guarantee you the GOP will blame everything on Obama and the Democrats and will get away with it if we don’t shine the light of reality into Trump voters lives…
The Democratic party is nowhere near perfect……We abandoned the 50 State Strategy and now the nation has 37 States under GOP control……..To me this is President Obama’s greatest single failing, I love the guy and will drink heavily the day he leaves office…But he failed to grow the base of the party…..We have to out register voters and get them to the pools to beat these ignorant goobers because of those who voted for Trump almost none will change their minds even as he bends them over and screws them….They’ll listen to Rush, Hannity, and the rest and keep doing exactly what they are doing……
We Dem’s are at odds over where the Hillary or Bernie wing of the party should be what we drive towards….IMHO we need a combination of both or we’ll be banished to the political wilderness for a generation…We need to stop with the internal bickering, elect a new DNC chair and get to work…
Here’s a hint…. Neither side will get everything they want so be prepared to compromise…. Look the word up and understand it’s meaning……
Dem’s as a unified group must obstruct, resist and fight the long fight to staunch the bleeding in 2018 and kick Trump to the curb in 2020………
Look at the example of NC and Kansas to see how a Democratic Party in a Deep Red state managed to make gains….It’s not impossible to win but sitting around complaining is not going to get us there….
I’ve begun my work…How about you?
