Democrats: Leaderless In Massive Assault On Rights And Decency

Just days ago I wrote about the need for Democrats to grow a back­bone. In an arti­cle writ­ten for chatt​-​a​-box​.com and Medium​.com titled How Democrats Got Completely Steamrolled By The Right I out­lined how Democrats are killing the resis­tance by chastis­ing its base into civil­i­ty and pas­siv­i­ty.

Longtime California Democrat and African-America Congresswoman Maxine Walters told a crowd of sup­port­ers to gath­er wher­ev­er they see Trump Administration offi­cials and push back on them as a means of reg­is­ter­ing dis­gust at the admin­is­tra­tion’s poli­cies.
Her call came amidst instances where Sarah Huckabee-Sanders, Trumps Press sec­re­tary, Stephen Miller a senior advi­sor on immi­gra­tion and the archi­tect of Trump’s Xenophobic poli­cies were forced to leave restau­rants because of protests.

In response, Trump threat­ened Congresswoman Maxine Walters, quote: “Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an extra­or­di­nar­i­ly low IQ per­son, has become, togeth­er with Nancy Pelosi, the Face of the Democrat Party,” Trump tweet­ed, ref­er­enc­ing the House minor­i­ty leader. “She has just called for harm to sup­port­ers, of which there are many, of the Make America Great Again move­ment. Be care­ful what you wish for Max!”

As a result of that threat, Trump’s min­ions have lev­eled death threats against the con­gress­woman caus­ing her to can­cel some sched­uled appear­ances in a few states.
Shockingly, instead of call­ing out Trump, Charles Schumer chose to crit­i­cize the Congresswoman from the Senate floor.
Schumer went as far as to say that Congresswoman Walter’s com­ments are un-American.
If her com­ments were un-American that makes the con­gress­woman un-American in the new York jew­’s eyes.

Nancy Pelosi also jumped into the fray and crit­i­cized con­gress­woman Walters, the hat­ed Pelosi obvi­ous­ly wants Walters to be a pas­sive door­mat like she is for Republicans who have demo­nized, car­i­ca­tured, and made her a fundrais­ing tool .
But that is to be expect­ed from Charles Schumer the New York Jewish US Senator whose only inter­est seems to be what Donald Trump is doing as it relates to the state of Israel against the Palestinian peo­ple.
But these two con­flict­ed Democratic lead­ers are not the only ones, Former Obama Campaign offi­cial David Axelrod and oth­er white mod­er­ates have also chimed in to crit­i­cize the pro­gres­sive left which wants a sharp­er tone against Trump’s aggres­sive Racist and Xenaphobic cam­paign against Immigrants and peo­ple of col­or.

One could rea­son­ably ask, who is the leader of the Democratic par­ty, what are the posi­tions of the par­ty? As I said days ago in anoth­er blog post, the Democratic par­ty is a mixed bag of Republican-lite mod­er­ate white men who aren’t exact­ly com­fort­able with the posi­tion­ing of the Republican par­ty but they real­ly have no strong philo­soph­i­cal posi­tions out­side the mantra of “we aren’t the repub­li­cans”.

As a con­se­quence, the par­ty does not have a strong bond with the strongest part of its base which is African-American women. African-American women are the back­bone of the Democratic Party. They turn out in huge num­bers to vote for Democratic white men who enact poli­cies anti­thet­i­cal to their val­ues.”
Those squishy white men sit around and wait to be elect­ed on the blood and tears of those black women.

At the same time their poli­cies are hard­ly any dif­fer­ent that those of Republicans when it comes to the mass incar­cer­a­tion and crim­i­nal­iza­tion of young African-American males, nei­ther do they con­strain the cops who enforce said poli­cies using white suprema­cist tac­tics..
They are duplic­i­tous­ly silent on the bur­geon­ing prob­lem of over-polic­ing and the seri­ous issue of police abuse and mur­der of African peo­ple.
In a strange way, white men who call them­selves Democrats are no dif­fer­ent than the white cops who work in black com­mu­ni­ties where they act as invad­ing armies, then go to their sub­ur­ban homes at night.

The shock­ing inci­dents we are wit­ness­ing in America are indeed a threat to peace and secu­ri­ty but as detestable as they are ‚the Trump dem­a­gog­ic agen­da is stir­ring up ani­mos­i­ty in com­mu­ni­ties where peo­ple were used to live togeth­er peace­ful­ly side by side.
Social media is replete with instances of aggres­sive open­ly racist behav­ior for no rea­son oth­er than those who engage in them, now believe they can do so with impuni­ty.

This is not good but it is behav­ior which has the bless­ings at the high­est ech­e­lon of the soci­ety. It is impor­tant that we rec­og­nize that these are indeed seri­ous times and that what we are wit­ness­ing are not nor­mal behav­iors but a seri­ous attempt by the Trump admin­is­tra­tion at eth­nic cleanis­ing of the United States.

Our friends over at (Salon.com)have also rec­og­nized the need for a stronger back­bone as peo­ple of col­or are being pil­lo­ried in an inces­sant pro­pa­gan­da cam­paign the likes of which we haven’t seen from an admin­is­tra­tion Democrat or Republican.
In an arti­cle titled [Democrats: Quit lis­ten­ing to “civil­i­ty” scolds and con­cern trolls: This is an emer­gency] writ­ten for (salon​.com) AMANDA MARCOTTE wrote the fol­low­ing.

Halfway through 2018, it’s clear that the year will be remem­bered by the his­to­ry books as a time when the Donald Trump admin­is­tra­tion start­ed its dras­tic esca­la­tion of what amounts to an eth­nic cleans­ing cam­paign aimed at non­white immi­grants. So far, the admin­is­tra­tion has made it a pri­or­i­ty to shake the trees to find every legal avenue pos­si­ble to throw out peo­ple Trump con­sid­ers too dark-skinned. This has includ­ed get­ting the Supreme Court to approve a Muslim trav­el ban, find­ing legal loop­holes to pros­e­cute peo­ple who are legit­i­mate­ly seek­ing polit­i­cal asy­lum and end­ing tem­po­rary pro­tect­ed sta­tus for hun­dreds of thou­sands of peo­ple from coun­tries such as Haiti and El Salvador.

Now the admin­is­tra­tion is even explor­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ty of denat­u­ral­iz­ing immi­grants who are now U.S. cit­i­zens by accus­ing them of lying on their appli­ca­tions. This is quite pos­si­bly a test case as to whether Trump’s enforcers can move towards bla­tant­ly vio­lat­ing the law when they’re try­ing to kick peo­ple out of the coun­try, with­out draw­ing any Republican blow­back.
