The Democrats have chosen their hill to die on in the cultural war:
This week, Democrats unveiled an agenda for the midterms that carefully avoided any mention of the issues that had led to accusations they’d been playing “identity politics” in recent elections. Their message, party leaders said, would be all economics, all the time.
But President Donald Trump is — and has always been — a culture warrior. And he made an aggressive move to elevate those issues to the political forefront Wednesday by announcing via Twitter that he is banning transgender Americans from serving in the military.
It is reminiscent of George W. Bush political adviser Karl Rove’s efforts to push a same-sex marriage ban in 2004. Gregory T. Angelo, the president of the Log Cabin Republicans, said Trump’s move “smacks of politics, pure and simple.”
This time, though, top Democrats say they don’t fear that a political debate over transgender rights will damage them in the Rust Belt. And some Democratic senators running for re-election in red states were sharply critical of Trump’s move.
“Democrats need to show — and can show — that they can simultaneously fight for a society that is both more fair and more prosperous — and drive home the fact that Trump is delivering neither,” long-time Democratic strategist Ron Klain said in an email.
Yeah, so good luck with that. If the God-Emperor will merely follow through on BUILDING THE WALL, he will secure re-election in 2020. Of course, his bigger challenge is not the Democrats, but the cucky, inept House and Senate Republicans.
The uselessness of conservatism has never been more clear than seeing these hapless posers suddenly rendered impotent by power. On tonight’s Darkstream, I talked about how the cucks are now Trump’s primary obstacle.
