I spent part of yesterday trying to dissect the tsunami that hit the Democrats in Virginia. And New Jersey, and a Texas House seat. Virginia was he big news, but New Jersey was a very close race that should have been an easy win for Democrats, and Democrats lost a long time House seat in San Antonio.
This was not just about Virginia, although Virginia is hugely important.
If you look on the left side of the aisle, they are taking the wrong message from what happened to Tuesday. According to the woke crew, it was all about white supremacy. For example:
Or maybe this:
I'm over it, and have been since the early 70s. It's true that I was born in deep-South Louisiana, but I've been over the racial divide since I became an adult. Since When I was a child, I did childish things, but when I became an adult, I served with magnificent black officers and NCOs who I trusted with my life and who I counted as brothers. As a civilian police officer, I served with countless magnificent black officers who I trusted with my life and counted as brothers. and sisters. I've been over race for fifty years.
The Democrats in general, and the left in particular, needs to get over race, and catch up with a broad swath of the country who judge people by the content of their character. We've been over race for years.
Maybe, just maybe, some of the ideas that the Democrats espouse don't fit the ideals of many Americans.
Perhaps, calling whole segments of the electorate "white supremacists" isn't a good idea.
Perhaps, pushing transgender policies while covering up rape in a bathroom isn't a good idea.
Perhaps calling concerned parents "domestic terrorists" is not a good idea.
Perhaps allowing huge populations of illegal migrants into the country is not a good idea.
Perhaps lockdowns, mandates, and vaccine passports are not a good idea.
Perhaps raising taxes is not a good idea.
I could go on for a while. Call me a racist if you like, of a trans-phobe, or a sexist, or any other of your labels to divide us. But don't expect me to vote for you. I am over your labeling.
