Democrats’ addiction to the race card is suicidal

Recently, a few high-profile events have illustrated the Democratic Party’s overdependence on the race card and need to wallow in identity politics.

Since President Trump came to office, the left has ramped up its attacks on Republicans. Democrats are trying to rally liberal activists and a cooperative media to cast most everyone in the GOP as racistswho sympathize with white supremacists.

Democrats howl about Republicans, make everything about race or “diversity” and don’t notice that voters are turned off. In the process, Democrats are further alienating many rational, thoughtful voters.

It’s easy to see that liberals’ insistence on politically correct identity politics isn’t just idiotic. It’s also dangerous.

Even though it’s mostly an inside-the-Beltway story, the Democrats’ latest example of racially tinged hypocrisy is revealing. According to its website, the Democratic National Committee “is an equal opportunity employer” — except when it’s not.

Here’s an example. According to recent reports, a DNC official wrote in an email to her Democratic colleagues that she’d prefer to exclude “cisgender straight white males” from consideration for jobs with the DNC’s technology department “since they’re already in the majority.”

It says a lot that in response to this email, an anonymous DNC source told the Daily Wire: “Clearly the DNC is doubling down on a failed strategy that has alienated staffers and voters alike. We want to be judged based on the quality of our work, not on identity politics. How can we trust the leadership of the DNC if they don’t even trust us?”

And that’s from a Democrat.

The Democratic Party’s support for identity politics extends well beyond the walls of the DNC. Tuesday’s terrorist attack in New York was allegedly committed by a Muslim immigrant who came to the United States on a so-called “diversity visa.”

And, it figures, the bill that helped create the program was introduced by none other than Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY), who stood on the Senate floor in 2006 saying: “As a member of the House, I helped create this program, which my colleague, Sen. Kennedy, created in the Senate in 1990 … So this is an excellent program. Nobody has said it has done a bad job.”

Well, here we are. Oh, and by the way, remember that when the diversity visa was created, Democrats controlled both chambers of Congress. That should give pause to anyone who thinks Democrats should return to power.

The fact is, in the land of opportunity, Democrats prefer that you meet their standards of diversity before you can participate. Considering they have no economic message and no plan to create jobs or grow the economy, they desperately rely on perpetuating lies and divisions through slanderous attacks on decent Republicans.

Most recently, in the Virginia governor’s race, Democrats are painting Republican Ed Gillespie, whom I’ve known and contributed to for years, as a bigot. The Ralph Northam campaign is standing by a mailer they sent out depicting Gillespie and Trump as white nationalists akin to those who marched in Charlottesville with tiki torches yelling hate speech.

And only after the tragedy in New York City on Tuesday did the Latino Victory Fund pull its vile ad that portrays a white Gillespie supporter on the prowl in a pickup truck hunting down and attacking Latino and Muslim children.

Think about that. Can you imagine the outcry if Republicans had run an ad featuring someone with dark skin threatening white children? It would rightfully be universally condemned. But with Democrats today — crickets.

Even for a cynic like me, that ad was about as low as it gets. It was much worse than the Willy Horton ad in 1988. The Democrats’ ad doesn’t just promote racial fear, panic and desperation, it shows the sorry state of Democratic politics.

For a decent person like Gillespie to be slandered and smeared is beyond the pale of what is tolerable. And I have a pretty big pale. The ad doesn’t just target Gillespie, it uses frightened children as props to deliberately mislabel all Republicans.

Democrats use identity politics to develop their campaigns, organize their party and impose their will via government policy. Qualified people are excluded from service, good candidates are smeared and Americans are put in danger. But somehow, Democrats think this is progress. They think this is justice. It’s what they want to do more of when they are in power.

Shame on them.

VA Governor Hopeful Ed Gillespie: MAJOR Endorsement

From: Ed Gillespie <contact@edforvirginia.com>
Date: Sun, Oct 29, 2017 at 3:33 PM
Subject: MAJOR Endorsement

We’re at the stage of the campaign when newspapers start to endorse candidates. And we’ve had a few really good ones recently:
 

Winchester Star: 
"to us this is by no means a close call…We endorse Ed Gillespie.”
 
Richmond Times-Dispatch: 
"As governor, [Gillespie] will deliver on Virginia’s potential. He has earned our confident endorsement.”
 
National Review: 
"Gillespie is running on a serious, forward-looking conservative agenda.”
 
InsideNOVA:
"we believe Ed Gillespie is the right gubernatorial candidate to get Virginia growing again.”
 
Bluefield Daily Telegraph: 
"Republican Ed Gillespie is the clear choice for a more prosperous Commonwealth.”

 
But there’s one endorsement that’s more important to me than any of these -- YOURS!
 
Click here to add your endorsement now.
 
While it’s great to have earned these endorsements from the media, your support is what’s critical to us winning in just 9 short days.
 
I would be honored to have your support -- and your vote -- on Tuesday, November 7th.
 
Sincerely,
Ed Gillespie

VA Governor Hopeful Ed Gillespie & Wife, Neighbors Being Spied

This is unbelievable and completely over the line for a once-respected newspaper. The Washington Post recently sent a team of reporters to Ed & Cathy’s home under cover of darkness to spy on Ed, Cathy, and their neighbors...and then wrote a story about it:
 

“Washington Post reporters arrived outside his house in the darkness of the early morning and drove along with the cars that left his cul-de-sac.”

 
Yes. Under cover of darkness, the Washington Post engaged in a creepy surveillance stake out of Ed & Cathy’s neighborhood.
 
They followed Cathy for miles. They followed a member of our staff. They even followed Ed’s neighbor as she took her pre-teen child to school!
 
It’s outrageous, creepy, and disgusting. It’s a new low for even the Washington Post.
 
Join fellow Ed Gillespie supporters in denouncing this lack of journalistic ethics and demand the Washington Post stop spying on Ed, Cathy and their neighbors. Add your name here. 
 
This behavior totally crosses the line and the Washington Post owes Ed, Cathy and their neighbors an apology. Virginia families shouldn’t be stalked by reporters simply for being neighbors of a political candidate the newspaper dislikes. That’s not the Virginia way.
 
Sincerely,
 
Chris Leavitt
Campaign Manager
Ed Gillespie for Governor

Poll: 2017 VA State Election



Poll: Gillespie leading in Virginia governor's race

Republican candidate Ed Gillespie is ahead of Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam (D) just two weeks before the Virginia gubernatorial election, according to a new poll.

Gillespie leads Northam by 8 points, 41 to 33 percent, among likely voters in a Hampton University Center for Public Policy poll released Wednesday. Twenty-seven percent remain undecided.

The Democratic candidate has led in a majority of other recent polls, holding a 5.8-point lead in the RealClearPolitics polling index.

Democrats and Republicans have rushed to support their candidates in the heated race ahead of the Nov. 7 election.

Former President Barack Obama hit the campaign trail for Northam earlier this month, and both he and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton have raised funds for his campaign.

Gillespie has also enlisted the support of top Republicans, with Vice President Pence and former President George W. Bush both speaking at fundraising events for his campaign.

The Hampton University Center for Public Policy poll of 750 likely voters was conducted Oct. 18–22 via landlines and cellphones and has an overall margin of error of 4.2 percentage points.
