If Democrats actually let their base pick the 2020 candidate (instead of doing it for them), they will likely end up with someone that conventional wisdom today suggests could never win.
You can hear it in the CNN anchors’ voices when they talk about the field. As the Democrat’s loudest and most persistent PR arm, the activists masquerading as journalists across our media desperately want Joe Biden to get the nod. Only Biden, they feel, truly has a shot at winning back the states that carried Trump to a comfortable victory.
But that’s today.
Today, the media know that our nation is nowhere near ready to embrace the socialist and extreme left policies being pushed by the rest of the field.
But just wait until one of them gets the nomination.
As soon as some race-hustling socialist like Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris or Elizabeth Warren gets the nod — the media will start normalizing that which they today fear as being too far left.
They’ll normalize the language. They’ll claim “The truth is we’re already a socialist nation.” They’ll help clean up the candidate’s messaging messes and gaffes. They’ll do countless stories about poor people who might benefit. They’ll take 15 minutes out of every hour to celebrate the “Massive wave that seems to be sweeping our nation!!!1!” in support of the candidate. They’ll help the candidate lie about what his/her plans are, just as Democrats have done ever since they lost the Civil Rights fight in 1964. And of course they’ll continue chortling over every negative detail they can scavenge in an effort to meddle in our elections by discrediting President Trump.
Today, top Democrat strategists like Chuck Todd and Resistance Jake Tapper desperately want Joe Biden to win the nomination. But just watch. If the Democrats actually let their base pick the nominee (big if), it will take about 5 seconds for Chuck and Resistance Jake to get on board and start using their platforms to help that candidate win.
The dangerous part — the part worth writing about — is that there’s a reason the mainstream media fears a Bernie Sanders or Kamala Harris candidacy. And that reason is that our nation is not ready, in any way, for the extreme leftism that’s sweeping the entire Democrat party. And our nation isn’t ready because the goals of the extreme left — tax the rich to death, heavily regulate everyone and everything (for our own good, of course), force us all to become racists who focus on skin color before anything else, free everything for anyone who wants it including people who don’t want to contribute in any way, etc — these are untenable not just for a prosperous and growing nation, but for one built on freedom and the strength of individual liberty.
The Democrat goals today, as asserted by the angry and extreme wave that exploded when Trump won the election, are insane. They’re terrible for our country in every way. They’ll create more disunity, more disparity, less freedom, more dependence, more corruption, and little hope for We The People to ever right the ship again should this new, more extreme, angrier and stupider class of Democrats get power.
And the media knows that. And the media knows that We The People know it. So they’re pushing someone more palatable like Biden.
The scary part is how quickly the media will shift from “Guys let’s keep it nice and steady and go with a safe pick like Joe,” to “Actually we’re already a socialist nation and anyone who opposes the New Green Deal is racist.”
Watch for it.
Today they know better, and they know that we know better.
Tomorrow they’ll pretend they don’t, and they’ll try to convince us that “extreme left” is actually just the new “moderate middle.”
The good news is that Resistance Jake and the rest of the allegedly impartial media have long since lost all credibility. They’ve destroyed the peoples’ trust in the political news media for a generation or more. The vast majority of the nation now sees the news media as nothing more than anti-Trump propagandists, and the only reason the polls don’t reflect that is because about 45% of our nation (Democrats) pretend not to see it. Go look at one of Resistance Jake’s posts on Twitter. Yes, as I’ve lamented in the past, Tapper does have an unfortunate base of middle managers in conservative media who spend most of their days giving him reacharounds. But as is the case with most of the mainstream media who are active on Twitter, the vast majority of love Resistance Jake gets is from those who hate President Trump. So when I say “Tapper is biased!”, the people who come to his defense first and most ferociously are those who hate Trump.
Yes it’s true that a tiny fraction of Republicans think media-based NeverTrump activists like Resistance Jake are great. (Think Jonah Goldberg, Ana Navarro, Seth Mandel, Rick Wilson, John Podhoretz, for example.) And Resistance Jake and the rest get miles and miles out of that tiny fraction.
But virtually all Democrats just love Tapper and CNN.
You need not look any further than that disparity for compelling evidence of the media’s now-normalized pro-Democrat, anti-Trump bias.
And those same Democrats will say, if polled, that the media is doing a swell job! But they know the reality. They know the political news media are now their greatest messaging allies. And when we call the media out for that, they all start gaslighting; claiming the blatant bias is actually just a figment of your imagination.
But it’s not. It’s actually out there in plain sight, for all to see. And we all see it.
I won’t pretend to know what will happen in 2020. I’ve said many times that thanks to the media’s flagrant bias, President Trump could very well win by an even bigger margin in 2020 than he did in 2016. But that’s really just a guess that’s educated, yes…but also hopeful. The truth is, I have no idea what will happen. But I do know that the Democrat propagandists masquerading as impartial journalists are today really hoping Biden gets the nod. Because it means an easier path, in their view, to victory. And it means an easier path because the nation doesn’t want the far left extremism espoused by the rest of the field. And the nation doesn’t want that far left extremism because it’s bad for our country. And the media know that. But when and if one of those far left candidates gets the nod, the media will shift gears in a split second and start working hard to fend off attacks and normalize that which they today know will dramatically expedite the total destruction of our country.
