Posted on 05/18/2018 8:58:00 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
In the endless search for the magic key that Democrats can use to unlock the hearts of white people who vote Republican, the hot new candidate is respect. If only they cast off their snooty liberal elitism and show respect to people who voted for Donald Trump, Democrats can win them over and take back Congress and the White House.
The assumption is that if Democrats simply choose to deploy this powerful tool of respect, then minds will be changed and votes will follow. This belief, widespread though it may be, is stunningly naive. It ignores decades of history and everything about our current political environment. Theres almost nothing more foolish Democrats could do than follow that advice.
Before we proceed, let me be clear about what Im not saying. Im not saying that the desire for respect isnt real. As a voter says in The Great Revolt, a new book by conservative journalist Salena Zito and Republican operative Brad Todd, One of the things I really dont get about the Democratic Party or the news media is the lack of respect they give to people who work hard all of their lives to get themselves out of the hole.
Nor am I saying there arent some liberals who express elitist ideas, because there are.
But the mistake is to ignore where the belief in Democratic disrespect actually comes from and to assume that Democrats have it in their power to banish it....

Because we’re Deplorable Bitter Clingers?............
Registered Democrats, mussie scum and child molesters are all the same to me....no apologies!
Maybe because we see thru their subversive BS.
Democrats are elitist snobs. Doesn’t matter whether they are poor or rich, they believe the government owes them something and they are willing to lie, cheat and steal to get it. They think the US Treasury is their personnel piggy bank and in exchange for their loyalty to other elitist Democrats the piggy bank remains open for business.
It’s easy to equate the word Democrat with the word Marxist.
Every last stinking one of them.
“White people who vote Republican....”
There you have the race and class enemy of the forces of Progress, and fit only for reeducation camps or extermination.
Already written off as bitter clingers & deplorables. The thought police are on their way.
A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the worlds greatest civilizations has been 200 years.

Because they hate US (US citizens) and want to replace US with fraudulently documented foreigners?
Outside of the beltway, and into various rural regions...I suspect that 10-percent to 15-percent of the working-class Democrats did vote for Trump along the way.
The Thought Police better be well-armed and numerous, and pack a lunch.
Most were raised by elitist feminists. They were conditioned to believe they are so bright. They dont respect characteristics they lack.
This guy is actually trying to argue that we’ve been duped into thinking that liberals hate us. I happen to know that he’s wrong on that.
LOL, “duped” in thinking Leftists HATE us...
I happen to know that is wrong too. I was never duped...:)
Because they hate us and/or think that we are stupid.
“Know at the outset that no matter what you say or do, Republicans will cry that youre disrespecting good heartland voters.”
And again, you Fn miss the mark!
A) Dip$hit, we don’t cry, we fight and B) You MFers do disrespect us and because of that, we fight.
We love the America that helped win two world wars, many of us are veterans and stand for the pledge of allegiance, love babies, pray to God, value the 2ND Amendment, every time you try to get us to agree with stupid social agenda idea we roll our eyes with disdain (i.e. transgenderpuke, after 8 years of Obama his greatest accomplishment was no one knows which bathroom to use)...We don’t cry — WE FIGHT!!!
Democrats don’t respect those from whom they seek respect. That’s kinda the first step ain’t it? Why be burdened with understanding and respect, when they can arrogantly condemn and look down on the ignorant bitter clinger “deplorable peasants”.
And...therein lies the rub! LOL! Liberals have personality disorders... meaning they can't objectively use their brains because their senses cannot objectively process raw data. They subconsciously fill whatever data their brain processes into a preconfirmed mold that cannot change! That's why there is no talking to them, while normal people process data and reassess their mental imagery! This is while they can be intelligent and booksmart, but have zero common sense. It's also why they are most likely to be traitors to any established set of laws and norms.
Republicans have only THREE weaknesses.
1. Open borders
2. “Free” Trade
3. Unnecessary warmongering.
If it were not for those, they’d have a complete monopoly on the Federal government.
And, of course, the Dims have dozens of weaknesses which everyone already knows about.
I will never “respect” or vote for anyone supported by Hollywood, non-taxpaying welfare freeloaders, MS-13, illegal aliens, felons, Muslim terrorists, foreigners, the UN, Planned Parenthood, anti-American/Christian/Caucasian groups, Communist Party U.S.A. and little Georgie Soros.
