SAN DIEGO, Aug. 1, 2016 — Democratic talking points seem written under the assumption that Democrats are blithering idiots. The talking points are simple mantras, their authors hoping no one will stop long enough to actually think about what they are saying.
They begin, “The problem with Trump is that all he does is offer insults and personal attacks.”
Then, “The other problem with Trump is that he’s a racist, sexist, xenophobe.”
The talking points claim that Trump is unpatriotically pessimistic about America and that things are going great, yet Democrats remind us that America is still a racist, sexist country with gross income inequality and must be fundamentally transformed.
We’re doing great, but we need to be fundamentally transformed.
Hillary Clinton repeats that tired cliché, “Wall Street needs to pay its fair share,” yet she’s received some $48 million from Wall Street in campaign contributions and a minimum of $225,000 per speech.
They say that it’s evil to build a wall, but Democrats had no problem building a big fence (a wall by any other name keeps people out) to keep the Bernie Sanders protesters out of the convention hall.
Who else was kept out of the convention hall? Anyone who failed to show proper identification. Yet in state after state, Democrats are suing to overturn voter ID laws.
Knowing that restricting the vote in American elections to American citizens is the law, the Democrats resort again to the charge of racism: African-Americans are supposedly unable to get photo identification.
Democrats don’t really care about African-Americans. They care about helping illegal immigrants who would in all likelihood vote Democrat. They seem worried they won’t win the election without cheating. But they know they can’t sell that idea, so instead, they claim African-Americans can’t get photo identification.
And why not? African-Americans can’t go to the DMV like everyone else? Even a person who doesn’t drive can get an alternative ID—for free.
Who registers their children in a public school without an I.D? Who opens a bank account without ID? Who uses a credit card without an ID? Who cashes a welfare check without an ID? Who checks into a hotel without ID? Who rents an apartment without ID? Who steps on a plane without ID?
And, once again, who gets into the Democratic Convention without ID?
They say that Trump is anti-woman. Yet women who have worked for Trump have been likely to be paid as well as men than women who worked for Clinton.
Democrats claim to protect the underdog and the disenfranchised. But that doesn’t apply to unborn children. It doesn’t even apply to born children inasmuch as some late-term abortions are really infanticides, like the ones performed by Kermit Gosnell.
Speaking of abortion, they revere Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood. Sanger believed in eugenics and superior breeding and published an article by Hitler’s eugenicist.
In a negotiation that smells of Hitler and Chamberlain, they praise the deal with Iran that threatens Israel’s safety, a deal Clinton claims as her own, a deal she claims stopped Iran’s nuclear program. How? By releasing frozen funds worth about $150 billion.
Iran will continue its nuclear program, though now it will be better funded. Iran will also continue to fund terrorist organizations like Hamas and Hezbollah.
Democrats are enabling a country that wants Israel wiped off the map.
Jew haters, eugenicists and baby killers: The Democrats remind us of something.
Speaking of something familiar, while the Democrats held a convention that barely uttered their name, ISIS slit the throat of a priest in France. That followed the murders in Nice, the murders in Germany, the murders in Orlando and the murders in San Bernardino.
And yet President Obama won’t even identify their true ideology: Militant Islam.
At the Democratic Convention, the Muslim parent of a fallen soldier explained why he won’t vote for Trump.
The Democrats used their convention to exploit grieving parents. Everyone should be sympathetic to a parent who lost a child in war. And if this was a Muslim American, same honor.
Their loss was used to attack Trump. But what did it have to do with Trump? What did it have to do with immigration policies? Nothing.
This Muslim parent asked Trump to read the Constitution because Trump supposedly doesn’t understand that the Constitution defends the rights of all Americans.
The Constitution protects the rights of American citizens; it does not apply to non-citizens. It doesn’t apply to refugees who wish to relocate to America. Living in American is a privilege, not a right. We have a right to ask refugees a few questions before letting them into our country.
This is especially true for Syrian refugees who, according to ISIS, are going to include some stealth jihadi terrorists.
Why do they admit this openly? Because they know the Obama administration is too foolish to stop them.
Clinton’s answer to this is a 500 percent increase in Syrian refugees, while an Obama spokesman wants to find jobs for the members of ISIS. The Obama Justice Department threatens to prosecute anyone who speaks against Islam.
All of this is just background for the words of Secretary of State John Kerry, who declared that air conditioning is an even greater threat to our planet than ISIS.
Democrats fight for the religious rights of Muslims in America, as they should, but not for the rights of Christians. If a Muslim refuses to sell pork, his religious liberties are protected. After all, who are we do interfere with his religion?
On the other hand, Christian pharmacy owners who refuse to sell abortifacients are treated like criminals who shouldn’t be allowed in that profession.
The real segregationists today are Democrats. Democrats fight for all-black dorm spaces on college campuses. White people who wanted to march with Black Lives Matters outside the DNC hall were told to go to the back of the line.
It sounded like “Go to the back of the bus.”
The Democratic Party is as hypocritical as ever. Hopefully, Americans will take a closer look at Democratic talking points, history and behavior before November.
