Patriots are Counter-Revolutionaries trying to prevent the government from overthrowing the Constitution."

Pocahontas and Krazy Kamala shamelessly pander for Nutroots support
"Netroots," derisively – and accurately – called the
"Nutroots" by some, is a group of hard-left activists who provide the
ready foot soldiers when the left goes to electoral war. So would-be
2020 Democratic presidential candidates appeared before them, each trying to
appear more insanely left-wing than the others, in an attempt to curry favor
with the certifiably politically insane.
Most prominent among
them was Senator Elizabeth Warren, a Caucasian-American pretending to be an
Indian-American, and Senator Kamala Harris, an Indian-American who prefers to
emphasize being African-American. Senator Cory Booker was also
there, almost as an afterthought, probably for comic relief. (He posed
for a photo with an anti-Israeli sign and then claimed he forgot to read it.)
Warren warmed up the crowd,
saying she is for "economic justice." The crowd went wild
because they know that "economic justice" is a code word for
redistribution of income. Then Warren tossed another buzz
phrase: "reproductive rights." None of the women in the
audience has ever been prevented from reproducing,
unfortunately. Warren said she was worried about a "mom"
getting shot during a traffic stop. Police bad! The crowd
Warren said the rich
are getting richer while people are holding down four jobs "just to pay
the rent." I would have liked to see a show of hands from her
audience of holders of four jobs. Warren complained that
"corporate giants" are controlling "more and more and
The entity that
controls the most, the federal government, escaped Warren's
notice. Big companies don't have the power to tax. They
don't have the power to regulate. They don't have the power to force
people to buy things, like health insurance. Only government
does. Government has gotten bigger and bigger, but more government
is not the problem, Warren assures us – it's the solution.
Harris tried to
one-up Warren by specifically taking ownership of identity
politics. Harris gave an example of it. She claimed
that black women are the key force who helped Doug Jones win a Senate race in Alabama. Why
black women were more important to Doug Jones than black men, or white women,
or even white men, is not explained. I can only assume that black
women were the most important in Jones's victory because Harris considers herself
a black woman and at the very apex of the virtue totem pole.
But in taking
ownership of identity politics, Harris was not merely talking about giving
victim groups undue credit for achievements. She was taking credit
for the whole movement of sowing discord among races. Identity
politics means pitting black people against white people, women against men,
and citizens against illegal aliens, and Harris knows it full
well. She gave a disingenuous example, but by embracing the term,
Harris told the audience that she was embracing full class and race warfare.
Cory Booker managed
to find his way to the stage, read his prepared speech, and find his way off
without incident. His staff hailed that as a strategic victory for
the senator, proving that you can set the bar low enough so there are no
losers, only winners.
Like Sauron and
Saruman competing for the allegiance of the Orcs, each will get a share of
supporters to help fight for the 2020 nomination. The old white
guys, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, not having the advantage of race or sex,
knew better than to even show up.
