I’m not a big fan of unions, but I have to say that it was a surreal moment when Sean McGarvey, who is North America’s Building Trades Unions president, said the following after his meeting with Donald Trump: “We just had probably the most incredible meeting of our careers with the president and the vice president and senior staff. . .”
Unions have been a Democrat stronghold for decades. Union membership has been dwindling. Companies have moved to Right to Work states in order to get away from union demands. Still, unions are a fact of life. As long as Pres. Trump does not grant special favors to unions, I don’t have a problem with union members supporting Trump.
It seems that all the Democrats have left are the LGBTers, abortionists, and duped minority groups that may be waking up to how they’ve been used.
Two recent attacks on an immigrant and whites could put the final nail in the Democrat coffin.
Chelsea Handler, the paragon of all that’s righteous and good in the world “took a swipe at Melania Trump saying she wouldn’t interview the First Lady because ‘she can barely speak English.’”
Handler just returned from the so-called Women’s March in DC that was actually a pro-death march — the death of liberalism, the Democrat Party, and unborn children.
A Christian pastor claimed the march was about “immigration” as well as other issues that were never addressed or a concern to the Vagina Monologue crowd. Let’s assume the march was about immigration. Consider Handler’s comments about Melania Trump in light of supposed Democrats’ concerns about immigration.
First, liberals are all about immigration except legal immigrants they disagree with. Handler attacked a legal immigrant with an accent.
Second, what an insult to immigrants who actually take the time and effort to learn English. Melania Trump should be an inspiration to all immigrants similar to the way Kellyanne Conway should be an inspiration to women in the arena of hard-nosed politics. Instead, Conway needs Secret Service protection because of death threats.
Third, Melania Trump spoke at the Republican National Convention in English, but also could have spoken in four other languages since she is fluent in French, Serbian, German, and her native Slovenian of which Barron is also fluent.
I’ve read many articles, heard a few speeches, and saw a lot of signs about the Washington Death March, but I don’t recall anything about immigration. It was all about sex, abortion, and vaginas.
In addition to bashing legal immigrants, it seems the Democrats are a party on their own fast death march toward political oblivion. A meeting was held by a number of prominent Democrats “to discuss what went wrong in 2016 and how to get the party back on track.” As the Barry Bonds’ character in Moneyball said, “Hey, good luck with that,” if this is the direction the Democrats are taking.
“Early into the event the candidates gravitated toward a particular scapegoat for the party’s poor showing in November: Political consultancies owned by white people.
“The event’s moderator, MSNBC’s Joy Ann Reid, asked the candidates how the party should handle the Black Lives Now movement.
“The candidates uniformly emphasized that the party must embrace the activists unreservedly.
“’It makes me sad that we’re even having that conversation and that tells me that white leaders in our party have failed,’ Brown said. ‘I’m a white woman, I don’t get it. … My job is to listen and be a voice and shut other white people down when they want to interrupt.’”
There you have, the Democratic Party has made blacks their political field hands, attacked legal immigrants with an accent, and are now telling white people to shut up. What a way to build a party!De
Note: I would add one more group to the alienated Democrats—the Jews. The Jewish voting bloc is very loyal to the Democratic Party even through eight years of the anti-Israel, anti-Semitic Barack Obama, and the extreme left wing part of the party taking control of the DNC. The extreme-left is more anti-Israel than the traditional Democrats. If the leftists are successful in electing the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, pro-Muslim Brotherhood, Keith Ellison to be the new party Chairman, that traditionally Democratic Party Jewish vote will ripe for the GOP to “steal.” And if President Trump keeps his promise to start treating Israel like an ally after eight years of Obama’s Israel bashing, and if he moves the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem as he promised, the 2020 race may see the Democratic Party receive lose the Jewish vote for the first time since President Harding received the majority of the Jewish vote a century ago.
