On Friday I wrote about how the same Democrat left that lost middle America with their race-baiting, sexual-anarchist, identity politics-driven agenda, and thus the 2016 presidential election, was doing themselves no favors heading into the midterm elections.
Despite a president that often times just can’t stop saying and tweeting unnecessarily provocative, ignorant, or alienating things, the Democrats have become so unhinged at the mere mention of his name that they repeatedly overreact and humiliate themselves to the point that they actually draw attention away from Trump’s antics.
As if that weren’t bad enough, they believe that the way to reclaiming middle America’s heart is to obstruct and oppose everything the President and his party advocate – even when that includes a massive tax overhaul that is already exceedingly popular with the country, and as bonuses and raises from employers continue to be announced, is only likely to grow in approval. The tax cuts passed without a single Democrat vote. And Democrat leaders continue to mock them, even as Americans embrace them.
A slew of Hollywood elites — all of them members of the the "One Percent" Club — will hold their own “People’s State of the Union” the night before President Donald Trump delivers his first address to a join session of Congress.
Slated to perform, er, attend, the Manhattan event are filmmaker Michael Moore, actors Mark Ruffalo, Alyssa Milano, Rosie Perez and Whoopi Goldberg. Comedian Wanda Sykes and actress Kathy Najimy are also scheduled to speak, and singer Andra Day and rapper Common will perform.
Yes, because if there’s one thing that’s going to woo the masses, it’s getting more Hollywood liberals to share their politics with us. What I can’t get over is that they actually think this is going to help them.
Don’t misunderstand, this isn’t suggesting that actors, performers, and Hollywood elites don’t have a right to their own political viewpoints. This is about strategy. And the strategist who thought the best way to win over the working class included putting wealthy rappers, actors, and entertainers from Hollywood in front of the microphones to pretend like they speak for middle America is utterly clueless.
For his part, disgraced hypocrite filmmaker Michael Moore called Trump a “malignant narcissist and an active sociopath,” who was a “singular threat to humanity.” Meanwhile, actor Mark Ruffalo, the man who infamously praised his own mother for illegally aborting his sibling (if that doesn't scream "mainstream," I don't know what does), will pretend to be a voice for the masses:
"In essence, it's a better reflection of our state of the union based on a more populist point of view, based on the people’s point of view," Ruffalo told People magazine. "I think it’s important because we have a president who has a difficult time with the truth, who has a radical, divisive agenda, and spends an enormous amount of time focusing on the negative and hopelessness and despair.”
Because there's nothing radical or divisive about Hollywood's agenda. And it's not as though Ruffalo and his cohorts spend an enormous amount of time focusing on the negative and hopelessness and despair surrounding Trump. Speaking of his cohorts, let's not forget Alyssa Milano is involved in this spectacle. We will just have to wait to see if she will still be sporting the cornrow hairstyle she recently dawned, earning social justice demerits for culturally appropriating blackness by fellow members of the #Resistance.
This is what liberals are allowing to go forward as the face of their opposition to Trump. It’s what they are allowing to be marketed as their “alternative” voice in an election year. You can that a lot of things, but smart isn’t one of them.
