Unified Patriots by Vassar Bushmills
The rift between Chuck Schumer and the Far-Left of his Party has exposed a division in it that few actually knew existed.
Since the late 70s, the Carter era, the Democrat Party has been made up of three constituent parts having nothing to do with identity politics (race, gender, etc.) These are 1) the Far-Left, or True Believers, 2) the Profiteers and finally, 3) the base.
The True-Believer faction’s end game is to entirely dismantle the Constitutional framework of the Republic and exercise power in a manner consistent with their statist world view, which appears to be part Marxist and part Fascist, but largely totalitarian. They are a minority in the Party, but they wield the greatest financial stick, for the Profiteers only scavenge and plunder, their careers based on their ability to run on the “D” alone, and garner votes in traditionally Democrat districts and states. Going to Wsahington as mendicant public servans, then retiring after 20-30 years a millionaire has been a staple business model for Democrat politics since FDR.
What has happened of course, as we first began to imagine during the Trump 2016 campaign, then saw become reality with the election, when Trump’s “lost army” emerged from the shadows to carry him to victory. These were the “Love America” Democrats, largely expelled by Obama in this second term, only there many more than just the “white working class”.
They made up the bulk of that 3) third part of the Party, its base, which, until only a few short years ago, scarcely more than two decades, still carried some fond memory of Americana. They have been driven out.
So no one is sure how many Democrats there are that actually love America anymore.
Only it seems the black working class was sent packing with them, only few people inside the polling business knew they even existed. But black folks still carry the flag too, only not so much in territory commanded by the modern Democrats, places such as inner cities, government office buildings and universities.
These are all No-Go Zones for the flag.
To replace them the True Believers, over a period of years, created a new class of voters to march toward that goal, across whose lips a “God Bless America” has never been uttered, probably not even in grade school.
Problem is, these Alinsky True Believers can’t count. That high. The simplest math tells us that A-students, even people who only see themselves as A-students, cannot achieve electoral power in a voter-based democracy without convincing a majority of the voters to let them lead them. There just aren’t enough angry women with pink-p**sy hats, and vulgar placards to make up the difference. The Democrat Party’s problem today is, demographically, to try patch together a voter-alliance consisting of “black professional women who work in government and the academy”, union workers, (at their lowest membership in 60 years), disenchanted professional football players, Hollywood screenwriters, a diminishing welfare class, and a few angry college kids who may or may not show up to vote, because they can’t remember if Election Day is this Thursday or next. and still come up with a working voting majority. 30%-35% tops[…]
