Ah, and there you have it. All the failures of the Democrat Party are the result of voters being too stupid to grasp the brilliance of leftist politicians.
So says Hawaii Senator, Mazie Hirono, a politician few would mistake for being a brilliant mind. One has to wonder if Democrats might lack the self-awareness to realize it’s this very elitist attitude that turns tens of millions of voters against them. Don’t forget it was Barack Obama who declared that all voters didn’t like him because they were, “…clinging to their guns and religion.” Yes, the arrogance is strong withing the Democrat Party.
‘This is why Trump got elected’: Dems ‘too smart’ for average voters, says Hawaiian senator
The Democrats managed to retake the House in November’s midterm elections but it didn’t quite amount to the impending ‘blue wave’ that was prophesied. One Democrat senator believes she knows the reason why.
Speaking to Canadian-American writer and journalist Dahlia Lithwick at a conference in Washington DC Tuesday, Senator Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) argued that Democrats were more adept at appealing to voters’ minds than their hearts when asked how Democrats could improve voter turnout.
“We’re really good at shoving out all the information that touch people here [pointing to her head] but not here [pointing to her heart],” Hirono said.
Hirono advocated for less manipulative language that stokes “fear and resentment” among disparate voters on both sides of the aisle.
“But we have a really hard time doing that and one of the reasons – it was told to me at one of our retreats – was that we Democrats know so much, that is true. And we have kind of have to tell everyone how smart we are and so we have a tendency to be very left brain,” she continued, in reference to the popular theory that left brain thinking is typically associated with linear, analytical thought.
It didn’t take long before the online outrage machine kicked into gear at the apparent lack of self-awareness displayed by the senator.
The Democrat Party is not based on linear, analytical though. Just the opposite. It is a party that appeals to unthinking emotion. “Vote for us because we care” has been the message of the party for some time now. They have no grasp on budgetary constraints, no love for the Constitution and its emphasis on limited government or pride in American history. Instead, they utilize a divide-and-conqueor strategy that pits segments of the country against the other while attempting to convince them all that the Democrats are the ones looking out for their interests.
Oh, and by the way, Senator Hirono is an idiot. She is confusing “information” with propoganda. Democrats know little about the former but plenty about the latter. Hirono is part of a political party that attacks law enforcement, calling them Nazis, claims Black Americans are incapable of self-determination, that they are both pro-Muslim and pro-homosexual/transgender (even as Muslims around the world are persecuting homosexuals/transgender) that less government is dangerous but more government is good, that military personnel returning home are potentially dangerous, that gun control on citizens must be enacted now even as they surround themselves with armed security, that giving more money to families is wrong but giving more money to government is always right, speaks out against Wall Street with a nod and a wink while simulteanously taking millions from Wall Street via political donations and speaking fees, who state Americans must unite but then attacks those Americans who think differently than they do.
The Democrat Party is a sham, a con, a hoax, that would destroy every unifying facet of the nation as a whole.
