Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, December 16, 2017

Democrats are fraidy cats who won't take their own side in an argument. Worse, they evince an air of fatuous goody-goodyness that serves only to distract attention away from the harms caused by the nefarious policies both parties favor. Nearly two-thirds of the electorate loathes Trump and the Republicans and their supporters who unaware they are being played. Trump and the party he nominally leads are playing with a weak hand. Israel meddles in our elections constantly. Congress and the MSM are in its thrall. Moreover, Netanyahu, is easily as apt a target for demonization as Putin. But, the 2016 election came down to a contest between goody-goodies and "deplorables." The way leading Democrats turned on Al Franken is a harbinger of where "the Schumer and Pelosi show" would like to take us. Schumer and Pelosi and the rest could learn a lot from Trump and the Republicans, about how to stick up for themselves and how, by doing so, to get their way.

Where Republicans are mean sons of bitches, Democrats are goody-goodies. This wouldn't matter if the Democrats were on a sounder, more progressive page ideologically. But unfortunately, Democrats and Republicans are on the same page ideologically.

Following Trump's lead, Republicans unabashedly appeal to all that is dark and base in human nature as they deepen their determination to serve the fraction of "the donor class" that is most in thrall to the cardinal sin of greed. They get their way more often than not. We have an increasingly right-wing judiciary and an increasingly enfeebled regulatory system to prove it.

During the Obama years, the party ratcheted up its vileness quotient by perfecting an obstructionist style so extreme as to be almost sublime. There was little room to degenerate further, but somehow they have managed to become worse still by cozying up to Trump.

In 2016, Democrats presented themselves as the party of everyone not white and heterosexual, or young and feminist. Few, if any, working class people, black, brown, or white, unionized or not, were able to work up any enthusiasm for Hillary or for most other down-ticket Democrats.

On the other hand, lots of people had no problem working up hostility to Clinton and others like her – not just in so-called "red" states, but throughout most of the country's rural, urban and suburban areas.

You can't be too picky about the people you work with. By enlisting Christian Zionists to their cause, Jewish Zionists have been demonstrating the efficacy of this teaching for four decades or more.
