Disgrace the Nation Face the Nation had a panel of democratic voters and asked them why they thought their party gets trounced in elections over the past few years and a couple of them have been brutally honest. But others really still don’t get it. The democratic party has moved to the far left of Stalin and have abandoned blue collar workers, with Hillary Clinton calling them deplorables. That is not the way to win friends and influence people.
A man named Jack opened up with the following:
“Well, the Democratic Party has – seems to be lost, and the reason they seem to be, to me, they seem to be lost is because they let the Republicans define who they are.”
Dickerson then asked:
“Connie, if you were giving an instruction manual to the Democratic Party to get their act together, what would you tell them to do?”
“They have to define who they are. They have to have a backbone about standing up for it, and not be bought out by anyone or swayed because they think they might lose their office. They have to be willing to stand for it – if you’re gonna say ‘I’m standing for this’, then you have to stand for it all the way.”
Jerry, another one of the individuals on the panel and a lifelong Democrat, said something extremely profound:
“I’ve been a Democrat all my life, I think the Democrats, not only are they out of touch, they have no interest in correcting the situation. They’re not doing any postmortems. They’re writing off ‘well, we don’t own the White House because of Putin, or because of WikiLeaks’ – what did WikiLeaks tell us, by the way? Regardless of who was behind it, they confirmed that Hillary Clinton and the Democratic establishment are liars and that they had this thumb on the scale for Hillary Clinton – well, what are they basically saying? If we hadn’t been caught lying, we’d be running the country right now.”
