Chuck Schumer and the Democrat party sold their souls to liberal extremist wing now they are paying the price
Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi have a problem. Long ago they sold their souls to the extremist liberal wing of the party. They have been able to hide it for many years by calling themselves moderates or progressives. But the Democrat party has been moving to the Socialist platform for decades. Donald Trump has just exposed them.
The problem with feeding the extremist is they never get enough. They are like any addict their addiction is hatred and control. No matter how much the Democrats oppose President Trump, and they have opposed him on everything. It is never enough.
The confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh began with a bang yesterday. No doubt George Soros backed protesters interrupted the Kavanaugh hearings 76 times yesterday. Senators Cory Booker and Kamala Harris have aspirations to run for President in 2020. When it comes time for their questioning of Kavanaugh they will have to make complete asses of themselves to feed their liberal/Socialist nut job base.
But it still will not be enough. According to Politico the Democrat party is not feeding the base enough. Liberals are not happy Democrats are not walking in lockstep to defeat the possibly conservative judge.
Thirteen liberal groups have joined together and sent Schumer a letter to step up the rhetoric and resistance on Kavanaugh. They say that “the Democratic Party’s progressive base expects nothing less than all-out resistance to Trump’s dangerous agenda,” and question whether Schumer is delivering it.
Schumer is in a no win position. He has the extremist base that he and the leaders of the Democrat party have created and kept well fed. They are not happy. There is also a big event coming up in November, the midterm elections. Democrats can’t win in red states without going back to the old lie that they are in fact moderates. With their own way of thinking. Not puppets to Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.
Three Senate Democrats in particular are facing tough re-election battles. Joe Donnelly Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp North Dakota and Joe Manchin West Virginia. All solid red states. To get re-elected they have to lie then spend the next 4 years voting liberal. The extremist want total submission from the Democrat party. Total resistance.
“Your job as Senate Democratic leader is to lead your caucus in complete opposition to Trump’s attempted Supreme Court takeover and to defend everyone threatened by a Trump Supreme Court,” the letter reads. “But unbelievably, nearly two dozen Democrats have still not come out against Kavanaugh. … That is not the leadership we need.”
According to the groups including CREDO Mobile, Indivisible, Democracy for America, and Daily Kos. MoveOn and Demand Justice. Letting the Conservative state Democrats slide in Kavanaugh vote is not acceptable.
“It is wrong to assume that a no vote on Kavanaugh puts red-state Democrats in electoral peril or somehow protects them from Republican attacks,” they write. “Anything less than 49 Democratic votes against Kavanaugh would be a massive failure of your leadership. We hope you won’t let us down.”
The Democrat party sold their souls to the extremist liberals/Socialist. Now they have to live with their decision.
