An obsession with identity politics is tearing apart the Democratic Party, if it hasn’t been destroyed already. But the Dems can’t stop. They can’t help themselves. They keep insisting that you need to vote based on the least interesting thing about you: your race. Or, if that doesn’t work, your gender. Or your sexual preferences, or which of the dozens of new genders you’ve decided you’ve always been, or whatever. You’re not a person to the Democrats. You’re not an individual. You’re just part of a voting bloc, indistinguishable from everybody else who superficially resembles you.
Despite all their electoral losses over the past 46 weeks, the Dems still think they can shame you into doing what they tell you to do. And when it comes to scolding you for thinking for yourself, few are more strident than the wife of our former Reprimander-in-Chief.
Former first lady Michelle Obama said Wednesday that while she wishes the best for President Trump, the women who voted for him “voted against their own voice…”
“It doesn’t say as much about Hillary, and everybody’s trying to worry about what it means for Hillary and no, no, no, what does this mean for us, as women?” she asked. “That we look at those two candidates, as women, and many of us said, ‘He’s better for me. His voice is more true to me.’ To me that just says, you don’t like your voice. You like the thing you’re told to like.”
Got that? If you couldn’t bring yourself to vote for Hillary Clinton because she was a bad candidate and an even worse human being, you’re a misogynist. You just didn’t want her to become president because she’s a woman.
Which is odd, because the last guy to thwart Hillary’s presidential dreams was Michelle’s husband. Apparently, his voters just liked the thing they were told to like.
And if you voted for John McCain in 2008, even though you knew it could put Sarah Palin a heartbeat away from the presidency, well… that’s different. It just is. She doesn’t count. You should shut up now. You probably stand up for the National Anthem too, don’t you, bigot?
I don’t know if I’m a Republican anymore, but I sure as hell ain’t a Democrat. If President Trump is the price we’re paying to watch the Democrats crash and burn, I can live with that. This is only the second-worst thing that could’ve happened to America.
