It seems that the democrats sunk every egg they had into the Hillary Clinton basket in 2016, and now the party and its leadership are irrevocably doomed.
Clinton, at one point, acted as though she were the inevitable President. Her strong connection to the democratic party and their current deity, Barack Obama, had a great many Americans believing that the former Secretary of State was a shoe-in for the Oval Office. Unfortunately, nothing could have been further from the truth.
As it turns out, Clinton’s closet full of skeletons would be unleashed by a campaign of disclosures through Wikileaks, with the suspected source mysterious dying in a bizarre “botched robbery” that led more than a few pundits to consider the murder a “hit” orchestrated by Clinton or the DNC. In these leaks it was revealed that, not only couldn’t Clinton beat Bernie Sanders without colluding with DNC leadership, but that she had arrogantly preferred to go head to head with Donald Trump over other republican candidates, citing that ease of which she believed that she could dismantle him.
Spoiler alert: That’s not how it played out.
Now, months later, the DNC and the democratic party in in the midst of a ridiculous soul-searching campaign that has them millions of dollars in debt, missing fundraising goals due to the pathetic lack of engagement with their party’s base.
“DNC Chair Tom Perez recently sent out a fundraising email to supporters claiming, ‘I know garbage when I see it,’ citing that he once worked on a dump truck. It’s ironic that he referred to the GOP health care bill as a ‘flaming dumpster fire’ because he has been presiding over the disaster that is the Democratic National Committee. The organization reported that May 2017 was its worst fundraising month since the Iraq War in 2003, and April 2017 was its worst fundraising month since 2009. In May, the DNC also reported that it has $1.9 million in debt. Despite the fact that former Secretary of Labor Tom Perez was recruited by Barack Obama to appease the party’s donors, lobbyists and PACs, even they have refused to prop up the failing brand.
“Democratic voters have so far refused to fill the fundraising void left by the party’s corporate and wealthy donors. Tom Perez is a painful reminder that the Democratic establishment has suppressed reforms that would prove to voters that the party is prioritizing their interests. Democratic leadership subverted pro-Sanders DNC chair candidate Congressman Keith Ellison’s candidacy, ignored demands to ban superdelegates, and failed to re-enact the ban on lobbyist and PAC donations that Debbie Wasserman Schultz lifted to enable Hillary Clinton to keep up with Sen. Bernie Sanders’ fundraising. Perez’s Unity Tour with Bernie Sanders backfired; he was met with boos at several of the tour’s stops and supporters showed up in favor of Sanders—not the DNC.”
And this is just the beginning of the democrats’ coming despair.
We are not yet one year into the fledgling presidency of Donald J. Trump and his republican-controlled congress. As the nation grows accustomed to Trump’s sometimes unconventional ways, the disconnect between the democrats and the rest of the nation will become more severe. The party itself is beyond repair, and is simply being help together by their blind opposition to President Trump. That ignorant hatred is not the stuff of political powers, rather, it belies a shallowness of the liberals that will certainly be their end.
