from the American Spectator:
The Democrats’ Shameless Political Pandering
Seeking a knock-out punch to Trump on the basis of no principles at all.
Politicians pander. Political parties pander. I’d never assert that the GOP is pure and holy. And yet, what we’re seeing from the Democratic Party in 2018, on the eve of next week’s midterms, is shameless political pandering, period. Yes, liberals, I know that flies in the face of your narrative, and headlines like the one blared across CNN.com yesterday, “Trump shocks with racist new ads days before midterms,” but the reality is the Democratic Party has been engaged in a politically grotesque Jekyll-and-Hyde scheme this entire campaign season.
What we’re seeing from the Democrats in their election strategy for 2018 is transparently dishonest.
It isn’t a matter of one man running for a particular office and adapting himself according to the political winds. Rather, the Democrats en masse seamlessly change their ideological undergarments from district to district and man to man and woman to woman in a terribly cynical manner.
Take a gander at DNC chairman and angry-man Tom Perez. Perez puts aside his snarl and growl and grins and glows that 28-year-old “democratic socialist” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a bona fide member of the ludicrous Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), “represents the future of our party.”
Does she? Well, not necessarily. Or not always necessarily — that is, if you look carefully at Democratic candidates running around the country. In some places she does, and others she does not. It depends on where the Democratic donkey bucks and brays at the given moment.
Check out another DSA-championed candidate, Kerri Evelyn Harris, who left-wingers were excitedly touting as the first biracial lesbian to win a seat in the U.S. Senate. The 38-year-old Harris challenged three-term Democratic Senator Tom Carper of Delaware in one of this year’s late primary contests. In her ads, however, Harris ran not as a rainbow warrior but a military warrior — as an Air Force Veteran who served her country in the Middle East after 9/11.
