Democrats Are Horrible People

I’ve had more jobs than most families. That may sound weird, but over the course of my life, I’ve held more than 77 jobs. Most for not very long and many at the same time. When you grow up without a lot of money, work isn’t an option; it's a necessity. In the near dozen or so retail jobs I held when I was younger, there were few things I disliked more than inventory day. The store would close early, and you’d have to stay late, scanning everything to see what they had (and what was stolen). It’s wildly essential information to the business. It’s also wildly important to take an inventory of other things in your life, like, for example, just how horrible Democrats are. If you don’t, like Ferris Bueller said, “you could miss it.”

Let’s start with Barack Obama. The former President likes to think of himself as a statesman but beware. Democrats always declare something they like as the opposite of what it really is. As an aside, a good rule of thumb in life is the louder someone declares themselves to be something, the less likely it is they actually are that thing. Intelligent people don’t need to tell everyone they’re smart; funny people don’t tell everyone how funny they are, honest, loyal, hard-working, etc. If you are something, we’ll pick up on it. 

Obama loves himself to the degree that no one can compete. He also leads a life where no one tells him no, at least no one who can make it stick. That, coupled with his general arrogance, empowered him to call South Carolina Senator Tim Scott an “Uncle Tom.” 

He didn’t do it directly – a skillful bigot has a thesaurus full of ways to convey their hatred with a wink and a nod, and that’s exactly what Barack did. “There’s a long history of African-American or other minority candidates within the Republican Party who will validate America and say, ‘Everything’s great, and we can make it.’” Obama told former campaign manager David Axelrod of Scott. “And so if a Republican, who may even be sincere in saying, ‘I want us all to live together,’ doesn’t have a plan for how do we address crippling generational poverty that is a consequence of hundreds of years of racism in this society — and we need to do something about that — if that candidate is not willing to acknowledge that, again and again, we’ve seen discrimination in everything from … getting a job to buying a house to how the criminal justice system operates. If somebody’s not proposing, both acknowledging and proposing, elements that say, ‘No, we can’t just ignore all that and pretend as if everything’s equal and fair. We actually have to walk the walk and not just talk the talk.’ If they’re not doing that, then I think people are rightly skeptical.”

The only people “skeptical” of Tim Scott’s sincerity are the leftists terrified by the prospect of a black conservative catching the attention of the American public. Scott, an actual descendant of slaves (unlike Obama), is the embodiment of the American Dream, as is Obama. The only difference between Scott and Obama is Obama believes he was exceptional in his ability to beat what he declares to be oppression of the “system.” Scott realizes anyone can do it because there is no such thing. The “system” doesn’t know anyone exists, nor does it care any more than the planet cares when you stomp your foot; it simply is. It’s left-wing politicians telling kids they can’t succeed who discourage the attempt and instill defeatism, not the “system.” 

As I said, an “inspirational figure” who is actually just a typical Democrat and a horrible person.

We also have to count the current occupant of the Oval Office among the worst. Joe Biden, known for being inappropriate and the touching and senile sniffing of women and young girls, got himself some side-boob this week from actress Eva Longoria. 

No female staffer wants to be alone with Joe in a secluded area that’s almost as dangerous as being between Chuck Schumer and a camera, as Tara Reade learned the hard way. But Joe doesn’t need to be in private to get his freak on, nor does his wife – whose ex-husband claims started her relationship with Joe while they were still married; happily, he thought (making it adultery) – have to be out of town or even distracted. She knows what she married, and several mansions and a stint in the White House is a small price to pay for a little public humiliation, especially when you know the traditional media won’t ever mention it.

At a White House event, Joe rubbed his hands along the side of the breasts of the actress in full view of the world. Longoria’s reaction said it all – she grabbed his hands and removed them as if it were choreographed, or like she’d had a long career in the town where “Me Too” was invented. 

Longoria, a vast Democrat fundraiser, and activist, will likely never address this and will undoubtedly campaign for Biden next year – agenda ├╝ber alles. But it happened; it happened on camera and in front of Joe’s wife, and Eva felt violated by it, and not a single one of them will do or say anything about it. 

This brings us to the press, who witnessed it all and stayed silent. Who hears the allegations of corruption and refuses to investigate; who sees the evidence of how the Biden family got rich and can’t even be bothered to ask a follow-up question if only to disprove the story and make Republicans look bad? They don’t do it because, somewhere deep inside, they suspect it’s all true, they fear it’s all true, and they want to get as much of their agenda rammed through as possible before it all comes crashing down because they cannot longer cover it up. If that means some cities are ruined, or a generation of kids are lost, or just some actress gets violated so an old man can feel giddy inside, so be it.

As I said, Democrats are horrible people. And this ongoing inventory reiterates what else we know: that they’re gross on top of it.
