It’s impossible to think that the Nutroots lefties aren’t intent on holding onto their hold of the DNC after reading this article. These people aren’t willing to admit that most people think they’re nuts. For instance, when Katrina Vanden Heuvel spoke, she said the “people in South Carolina who run hotels, who understand — self-interest. They will be overrun by rivers and water if they don’t deal — deal with climate crisis.”
What idiot thinks that they’re going to win back coal miners and steel workers talking like that? I don’t doubt that Ms. Vanden Heuvel thinks that. Even if it’s true, which it isn’t, why would a coal miner support Ms. Vanden Heuvel’s policies? Hardline progressives like Ms. Vanden Heuvel simply don’t appeal to blue collar workers because their worship of the environment turns huge parts of the upper Midwest off politically.
Salena Zito highlights the Democrats’ disdain for blue collar workers in this article. Think of what the difference between the Democratic Party of LBJ, Hubert Humphrey and Pat Moynihan and the Democratic Party of Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer. Then read Ms. Zito’s column, which says “Since then white, traditional-values, working-class, predominantly male voters have been severed from their party so they could build an urban- and cosmopolitan-centered coalition of minorities, elites and women.”
For that matter, think of the difference between Mrs. Clinton’s disdain for Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin vs. President Clinton’s attention to those states. The contrast is stunning. Watch this video and tell me that this reminds you of the Democratic Party of 25 years ago:
If this is the new identity of the Democratic Party, they’d better prepare to lose lots of races in the 2018 midterms.
