Libs playin' the race card? Can't believe it. So unlike them.

Liberals blame white women for Democrats’ failures in midterm elections – and they’re vicious

Prominent liberal voices offered scathing critiques of the demographic they blamed most for the lack of “blue wave” victory in the midterm election on Tuesday – white women.

“White women uphold white supremacy”

Despite the onslaught of free campaign publicity for Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) in his uphill attempt to unseat incumbent Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and the millions that poured into the contest, Cruz was able to hold on to his seat. Although the House of Representatives fell under control of the Democrats, many were disappointed at the lack of greater electoral successes.

Many on the left saw this and the deflation of the “blue wave” as evidence that white women were not pulling their weight at the polling booth to help their progressive vision come to fruition.

And they aired out their frustrations on social media.


Liberal activist Marisa Kabas tweeted, “white women uphold white supremacy through their vote. they have no qualms about hurting women of color, and that’s an objective truth.”

“Black women voted 95% for Beto. White women did what white women do,” said comedian and writer Travon Free, adding an image showing that 59 percent of white women voted for the re-election of Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas).

Some conservatives on social media saw the irony of blaming white women for voting for a Hispanic candidate, simply because he’s Republican.

“59% of white women voted for Ted Cruz,” said white female comedian Chelsea Handler. “I don’t know what it is going to take for us to be sisters to other women, but we have to do better than this.”

“We need to vote for the best interests of others, and stop thinking only about ourselves.”

“White women are a Republican constituency, and in many states they again voted as if patriarchy would protect them,” said frequent MSNBC guest Jamil White. “50 percent or more for DeSantis, Cruz, and Kemp.”

“I am unsure when they will understand the damage that they do, and not just to themselves.”

“Really, truly embarrassed that 76% of white women in Georgia voted for Kemp. It’s shameful. Humiliating,” said New York Magazine writer,

“Thinking about driving my ass down there next election and personally talking to as many of these fools as possible.”

“We have to do better, white women. Doing f**king SOMETHING would be a g***amn start,” tweeted liberal writer Courtney Enlow. “Have the awkward conversations, take the emotional labor off the backs of women who have more on their g***amn plate than we ever will. Do. Better.”

This is something I pointed out a few months ago...This thread is a prime example...

Donald Trump won. Let the uneducated have their day.

Do Donald Trump supporters realize how they parallel Neo-Nazis?

I recently heard that Charles Krauthammer once said something I've always said and believed...

I have no clue how they think attacking voters will make them come to their side...Maybe a few squishy, pajama-boy types that feel they need to be part of the elitist class, but nowhere near a major chunk of voters...

Bashing the voters of the opponents is something the losing side usually does after elections. When Bush won the left call the voters dumb, uneducated and most likely some other names too. This on top of accusing Bush of stealing the elections twice. When Obama won the right call the voters low information voters, moochers who only wanted free stuff and probably some other names too. This on top of a few claiming he was not born in America and had a fake birth certificate. When Trump won the leftists accused the voters of being misogynistic, racist, dumb, ignorant and all sorts of other names too. This on top of accusing him of colluding with Russia and stealing the elections and being a rapist. And anytime republicans win the left accuses them on gerrymandering. I am sure its been that way during Clinton, first Bush, Reagan and other presidents. Its that with the internet the voices of the fringe are very loud and it seems more common that what it is.

The premise that there was no blue wave or that the Democrats lost is simply false. Given current projections for final vote totals, Democrats are going to end up winning the overall House vote nationwide by over 9 points. That’s the largest margin of victory in a midterm House election by either party in almost 30 years. Flipping almost 40 seats, given Republican gerrymandering advantages, is a huge victory.

I found this line from Chelsea Handler humorous:

Quote:
“We need to vote for the best interests of others, and stop thinking only about ourselves.”
So white women need to quit thinking about themselves and their families and consider how liberals feel and voting for their best interests, just like when liberals vote for the best interests of Conservatives.

It's not wonder they keep loosing elections as they are placing their hopes on idiots like this.

The Republicans will gain seats in the Senate which is highly unusual in a midterm election this making this "blue wave" nothing but a ripple. A loss of 27 house seats in a midterm election by the party that holds the white house, is a typical midterm expectation. There is nothing to indicate any surge of liberalism in this election.

The massive blue wave the Resistance was touting failed to materialize. Last summer they were touting the substantial gap in generic ballot preference and Trump's approval rating as proof voters were going to sweep Congressional Republicans out of power with a massive shift.

Compared to Obama's first midterm the change was tepid. This time 40 House seats changed party compared to over 60 in the 2010 midterm election. Republicans added to their Senate majority whereas Democrats lost seats but still maintained a slim majority.

Touting the meaningless 9 million vote nationwide advantage for Democrats is pap for the gullible. Congressional races are district and statewide. Democrats do better in higher population density typically urban districts. There are simply not as many voters in a typical South Dakota district as in an NYC district. Of course Democrats would prefer a national plebiscite to select all members of Congress as long as they win.

Gerrymandering is to blame when the Republicans win control of the House and when the blue wave fizzles. It's never the case that Democrats put up bad candidates or that voters reject Democrat policies or don't believe their promises. It's always blamed on someone else.

The failure of the blue wave to materialize means Nancy Pelosi will need votes from the 50 Democrats who pledged not to vote for her to become Speaker. The very first vote these newly elected Democrats will show their dishonesty. There is little doubt Pelosi will be able to wrangle enough Democrat votes to get the Speakers gavel, she "pursuaded" some 60+ Congress people to walk the plank to get Obamacare passed.

Let's watch and see what the Democrats do with the 'huge victory'. Will they actually do something constructive and beneficial, or will it be obstructionism all the way?

Democrats have no choice, they must dance to the tune their Resistance masters call. Expect impeachment hearings to begin in the House immediately after Mueller's report is released. It doesn't matter that Mueller will likely be unable to show evidence of collusion, Democrats will manufacture a rationale for impeachment.

Give it 6 months and Trump's tax returns will be public. My prediction will be they will be released in closed sessions to Schiff's kangaroo court then "leaked" to loyal Resistance media allies. The gross illegality will be dismissed or ignored.
