Democrats Headed Over A Cliff

They deserve it.

We’re calling it a red storm rising. Gingrich has picked the unfortunate and tired red tsunami line from 2018. Either way you slice it, the Democrats are in trouble.

Gingrich: Big earthquakes offshore in Alaska or Chile lead Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders to worry about tsunamis coming from thousands of miles away. People take precautions. They move to higher ground. Faced with a real threat, Hawaiians prepare to make major changes to survive.

Apparently, Hawaiians are more interested in survival than Washington Democrats. Democrats have now had three weeks of tsunami warnings, and the dictatorship of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., seems determined to force through trillions of dollars of additional spending and a host of radical woke policies – even though the American people are screaming, “No!”

Big government socialism and woke radical policies – and incompetence on issues such as inflation, crime, controlling the border, leaving Afghanistan, and solving logistics problems – are all adding up to an easily repudiated mess. Fed up Americans have a simple battle cry: “It just doesn’t work.”

You may think I am exaggerating about a tsunami-like anti-Democrat wave, but consider recent evidence. On Nov. 2 Glenn Youngkin led an entire team to victory in Virginia. The team included Lt. Gov.-elect Winsome Sears, a Jamaica-born naturalized citizen who served in the U.S. Marine Corps and loves America. It also included Attorney General-elect Jason Miyares, the son of Cuban refugees who escaped the oppression of communism.

This diverse, impressive Republican team swept Virginia and carried with it a new Republican majority in the legislature. For Pelosi and the Democrats, this was earthquake No. 1. A few miles north, in New Jersey, Ed Durr Jr., an independent truck driver, defeated New Jersey State Senate President Stephen Sweeney in one of the biggest upsets in modern politics. Durr spent only $2,300. Clearly, the voters were saying: “Not Sweeney.” Consider that Sweeney got almost 59% of the vote four years earlier. This was earthquake No. 2.

And there were more quakes to follow. On the opposite side of the country, in Seattle, a Republican won the city attorney’s race for the first time in more than 30 years. In a state legislative special election in San Antonio, Texas, a Republican won in a 73% Latino district.

A few days later Democratic Texas State Legislator Ryan Guillen switched parties, saying: “After much consideration and prayer with my family, I feel that my fiscally conservative, pro-business, and pro-life values are no longer in-step with the Democrat Party of today, and I am proudly running as a Republican to represent House District 31.”

…Still, with the tide receding, Pelosi charges toward the beach – and the lemmings (replacing the donkey as the symbol of the Democratic Party) march in lockstep behind her, toward the coming tsunami.

The media, including Fox, is guilty of murder. They loaded, aimed and fired Darryl Brooks at those white, conservative citizens in Wisconsin, similar to if they had used a gun. Brooks has about the same intelligence level as the inanimate object for sure.

This is a beautifully written mini-essay on the state of the Democrat Party. What is troubling or at least unnerving is that when the Conservatives point out what the Dems are doing wrong, are we not making it easier for the Dems to launch a sudden and powerful about-face using true overwhelming blitzkrieg-style promotion? Can they not completely change what they’ve done wrong and time it to next fall’s elections to give the impression that the Dems are now the “awakened, new, vibrant, in touch” Party? The Republicans will still be beating the same drum they’ve whacked for a year and look old and yesterday’s news when the “New Democrat Party” arrives just in time for the elections. After they dodge the “Red Wave,” they’ll stand on deck and watch it roll by petering out in the horizon. Then, they’ll turn around and, with the extra two years they’ve just gained, unleash the Devil full throttle.

Well, we can hope that it is true and that many, including many of the entrenched long timers, are forced into retirement or other occupations. But the Republicans cannot be stupid, act stupid or be complacent and must not equivocate in what they stand for. There still a year to go so lots can happen.
