Far left Democrats and their media cohorts are seething as the losses they’ve accumulated against President Trump continue to pile up. And what then do they blame for this consistent string of defeats? The Constitution of the United States which they now claim unfairly represents minorities. That’s right, these leftists are blaming America’s governing document which protects the voices of the few against the political mob mentality. Democrats believe political minorities should just shut up and sit down.
Democrats’ latest excuse: Blame the Constitution
Democrats suffered a stinging loss in the fight over Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, and have concluded that the constitutional system is to blame.
You see, if only the Founders hadn’t forged the Great Compromise between large states and small states at the Constitutional Convention in 1787, giving each state equal representation in the US Senate, they would have defeated Brett Kavanaugh handily. It’s only because smaller red states have two senators just like larger blue states that the judge got confirmed.
For the left, the US Senate is now looming, together with the Electoral College and the Supreme Court, as an institution of villainy in American life. In the words of Vox, the Senate is “a grotesquely unrepresentative body.” ThinkProgress deems it “an immoral, anti-democratic institution.” One reason Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne calls the ascension of Kavanaugh to the high court a “coup” is that he was “confirmed by senators representing 44 percent of the population.”
Democrats have gone from bragging about their permanent majority a few years ago to complaining it’s impossible for them to win under the governing regime that we’ve had for more than 200 years since it’s so tilted toward “minority rule.”
Using the Democrats’ own anti-political minority logic, the votes of black Americans, Indian Americans, Native Americans, Asian Americans, gay Americans, etc., should be considered “lesser” votes because they all represent minority segments of the overall population. What these same Democrats are then saying is that the only voices that truly matter to them are privileged white upper-class urban voters who have the time to protest and color their hair pink.
Gee, kinda sounds racist don’t you think?
