For years, the Democratic party has held itself up as the party that cares for the regular man in the country. That they are the only ones that understand the plight of the blue-collar worker, and for a while they did. Let’s be honest with each other, the Democrat party used to be JFK and the Republicans were seen as the rich people. However, the tide changed somewhere around Jimmy Carter and Democrats started to make the turn to a Marxist belief system.
Fast forward to 2021, and Democrats are hard-core progressives that only want to control the American people.
In 2016, Donald Trump burst onto the scene and flipped the status quo on its head, and won the Rust Belt manufacturers and coal miners who had been largely ignored by the Dems.
The new progressive movement from the left would kill the jobs that they have been doing for years with their Green Agenda, and the great divide between the working class and the Democrat party began to be clear.
Then with COVID ripping through the nation, that divide only became more evident as Democratic leadership continued to shut down workers in the name of “safety” in exchange for government handouts.
This is not what the old Democrats are about at all. They have always believed in hard work but not this tyrannical junk the left is pushing onto everyone.
That was shown perfectly just recently during an appearance from Democratic Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot. Instead of Lightfoot being cheered on when announced she was loudly booed at a fundraiser for a plumbers’ union that endorsed her in 2019.
Here is more from Western Journal:
As Lightfoot was introduced on stage at the event for Plumbers Union Local 130, loud boos filled the room according to reports and videos posted to social media in which the outburst of disapproval can clearly be heard.
Of course, to hear the Chicago Sun-Times tell it, there was likely only a small smattering of faint boos.
“I was there when she was speaking. There were a couple of people in the corner that booed. But it was nothing significant. And it didn’t disrupt the event at all,” the union’s recording secretary Pat McCarthy told the newspaper, who insisted that the mayor was able to “finish her remarks” and even got “a cheer” at the end.
Perhaps one person cheered, but watch this video of Lightfoot being introduced and tell me if this sounds like “nothing significant.”

You can hear one of the fundraiser attendees say in the background as the boos filled the auditorium that the reception was “f***ing brutal,” which sounds slightly more accurate than “nothing significant,” if you ask me.
As one anonymous source told the Sun-Times, it seemed more like Lightfoot was “booed off the stage” and that the “resounding” boos were “almost deafening.”
All the same, union administrators seemed pretty insistent that the boos were not indicative of the union’s relationship with Lightfoot.
“We’ve been supporting the mayor since Day One. We were the first union to support the mayor. She’s been here numerous times at meetings and stuff,” the union’s president Jim Majerowicz said. “She’s a great partner of ours.”
Majerowicz also found it “hard to believe” that there had been significant booing going on, but he told the paper he was downstairs at the time and could not hear the crowd when Lightfoot was introduced.
The mayor’s political director, meanwhile, told the newspaper that Lightfoot will seek the union’s endorsement when she runs for re-election.
It appears the tide is changing and with the state of Virginia turning red in the recent election it seems that a red tsunami will be sweeping through soon.
