It wasn’t just voters who the media considered members of the “alt-right wing fringe movement” who put Donald Trump in office, a sizable portion of Clinton’s own party abandoned her in favor of an America first agenda.
Earlier this year I reported on the formation of the Trumpocrats PAC, a group of Democrat aligned voters who have become disillusioned with their own party and feel they have been abandoned. The Democrats failed to engage their core supporters, blue color workers in the Midwest, in favor of a more “progressive” agenda focusing on minorities and immigrants. An agenda, that many say was a contributing factor to their defeat.
Bill Clinton reportedly pleaded with the Clinton campaign to engage the Midwest white working class, but he was laughed at for even broaching the idea.
Now, Christian Rickers, director of the Trumpocrats PAC, in an interview with Breitbart New Daily explains the next steps of his organization and the future, or lack there of, for the Democratic party.
“We’re looking forward to the first hundred days, and we’re going to try to push for Donald Trump releasing the tourniquet on the coal and oil industries, starting maybe an infrastructure bill to improve the roads, highways, airports, schools in the country, and, I hope, push for him to go ahead and start renegotiating on these trade deals, so we can bring our jobs back, and bring some of these companies that are parking their assets overseas and moving their companies to Mexico, hopefully we can stop that from continuing and bring some of them back,” he continued.
Rickers laughed when Marlow observed that the media were still running the same pre-election playbook about how Trump supporters are a fringe movement motivated primarily by racism.
“Well, they were completely wrong all along,” he pointed out. “They were popping the champagne corks early in the day on Tuesday. I was watching Morning Joe and some of the other cable shows, and they were just as excited as they could be. By the end of the day, they were all looking at each other and didn’t have anything to say. And then the next day, and the next day, they were making every excuse in the book and blaming it on racism. I mean, who believes that half the people in this country are just pure racists? This is just insane.”
“They’re mad about the policies in this country,” he said of Trump voters. “They’re mad that they’re not able to provide for their families like they used to. I don’t know how that translates into racism. It’s really unsightly, unseemly, and we need to start talking about positive things that we’re going to do for this country, and not make up excuses every time something doesn’t go their way.”
Rickers predicted that Democrats would “go off and double down and say, ‘We’re going to elect Nancy Pelosi to lead the Democrats again in Congress.’”
“I mean, what in the heck is going on? The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result,” he said. “It’s just laughable. Where are they going? What is their vision for the future? They’re still looking in the rear view mirror.”
Indeed, it seems that after their crushing defeat in the presidential election, the Democrats have completely run out of revolutionary ideas and are seeking to explain their failure away due to “racism” and “bigotry” in white America, following the same course that caused them to lose massive numbers of working class voters in the first place.
Even the liberal media has picked up the narrative of racism or sexism being the main cause of Hillary Clinton’s loss, with some leftist journalists calling the election a “whitelash” and proof that racism still exists, despite the fact that many counties that voted for Trump this year ended up voting for Obama twice. This is the same behavior that drove many Democrats who were sick of being called racists and shammed at every turn away from the party in the first place, contributing to Trump’s overwhelming victory. The fact that an organization like the Trumpocrats was even formed in the first place should be proof enough that the Democrats are failing their supporters.
Although the “old guard” in the Democratic party are sticking to the same losing formula that cost them this election, some of the younger members are seeking a massive overhaul and demanding that DNC Chair Donna Brazile resign immediately due to her scandals, failures and unwillingness to change.
It’s ironic that the entire mainstream press thought that the Republicans party would be fighting a brutal internal civil war among themselves due to the Trump movement, but it’s just the opposite, with the Democrats being in complete disarray and without a leader to turn them towards new direction.
The liberals, the media and the Democrats will continues their old playbook of crying “racism” and social injustice, while the American people move on, leaving them to wallow in their safe spaces. Until the party recognizes the concerns of the American working class and decides to focus on real issues effecting our nation, rather than exaggerated injustices, I believe the Democrats will continues losing support until new leadership takes hold.
The sore loser protesters taking the streets and disrupting our way of life certainly isn’t helping their cause.
