Woke Politicians Humiliated In Recent Elections

They have themselves to blame.

Many saw this coming, including certain Democrats. It is an ongoing attempt to fit a round country into a square socialist hole. It is failing. The Left finally got an insurrection. Just  not the one they had hoped for. From Seattle to Long Island voters told the Left to naff off. But Democrats won’t listen. They will jump over many more cliffs. Matt Schlapp, of the American Conservative Union, details it.


Schlapp: The woke political movement was humiliated on Election Day by American parents, first-responder supporters and patriotic voters who are exhausted from the ubiquitous charge that everyone and everything in America is racist.

Last year our country was pulled apart by the coronavirus, race riots and no-rules voting.  A sad acceptance crept in with the perception that our country had embraced a very radical reimagining of itself. Socialists had a slim grasp on power after the strangest of elections and they took full advantage of it by jamming every piece of their agenda possible into an emergency spending measure and executive actions with little response from timid Republican judges.

However, one thing remained constant: this radicalized Democratic party failed to convince voters that their ideas were beneficial to them and their families. American voters sent a message on Election Day, even from blue Virginia, that a Democratic party enamored by socialism is too strident and offensive for common sense Americans.

A new coalition developed that was the core of the political pushback: Americans fired for directing their own health care decisions concerning the Chinese coronavirus vaccine; backers of the blue as crime has grown to unsafe and epidemic levels in all our major cities; and parents who saw the overt racism being propagandized to their children through zoom during school lockdowns.

It turns out that shutting down over a year of in-person schooling got the attention of parents who had assumed that turning their kids over to schools with little supervision was responsible and safe. It also has always been true that you can force people to do something they hate – like wear a mask or take a shot or apologize for being White, Christian, straight or male – but public compliance does not guarantee private acceptance. In fact, government forcing one to break their conscience causes the victim to find different ways to say “NO.”..

One thing is true, President Biden just experienced the biggest and quickest reversal in political standing of any president since the creation of modern digital media. And what will his party do in the face of this humiliation? They will do what D.C. politicians always do; they will run away from him, his policies and his people. It is the one thing you can always count on in Washington.

There is an old saying “you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink”!. Same thing with the “woke” crowd, you show them they are wrong but they will not change for nothing!
