I sat and viewed video from the last two days from DC....over the riots and protests. Fires were set. Some business operations were damaged. Lot of interviews from "sour" participants over Trump. After a while, I came to ID the whole gang....as the bridge-burner-bunch.
These are the various groups that currently make up the bulk of the Democratic Party.
The gay agenda club, the Trans crowd, the feminist gang, the environmental folks, the BLT outfit, the teacher's union faction, the anti-capitalist bulls, the young intellectual Bernie-sect, and university-revolutionary squad.
When interviews occurred, each had something to represent their theme.
The problem is....you don't see some middle-of-the-road regular Democratic guy who works his 40 to 50 hours a week and pays his taxes, and just wants his piece of the Democratic agenda. Over the past two decades, this team logo of the Democrats has been mostly taken over by the groups I mentioned before. When you look at the voting characteristics now in a typical election.....the Democrats can count on two types of counties for their wins.....one where it's mostly people on gov't programs of welfare, and the second in highly urbanized areas. This 25-percent chunk of Democratic support isn't doing well against the remaining 75-percent of the nation.
The thing about all this coverage by the news media, and their thinking that this will light some match and get anti-Trump feeling going.....I would suggest otherwise. If I were the mid-class regular Democrat guy who voted for Trump....I'd look upon these dimwits in DC, with their damage to businesses and continued bridge-burning talk....as a big negative. It'd only convince me the party has damaged itself, and these thugs are part of the problem...NOT part of the solution.
Long-term, if this is the image presented and hyped up by the news media....the Democratic Party will sit and swallow some bitter pills in 2018, and 2020. As long as they see the 3,100-odd counties do a 75-25 split....their window of opportunity is non-existent.
