Here’s a primary upset that illustrates perfectly what we’ve been pointing out about the Democrats’ brown future. According to the MSM, it was “shocking.” Rep. Joe Crowley, a 10-term incumbent from the 14th congressional district which covers Queens and the Bronx, just got knocked off by a vibrant “Latinx” 28 year old. Once in Congress, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has vowed to pursue a socialist agenda. At the top of her list of priorities is the abolition of ICE, which she made the centerpiece of her campaign.
The delicious irony in all of this is that Crowley was touted as a potential Speaker of the House after the great blue wave of 2018 chased out the Republicans. Well, too bad, there’s a wave, but it’s brown. Ocasio-Cortez pointed out that it made no sense for a White man to represent a majority-minority district. The district agreed. Adios gringo!
Crowley tried to go as left as possible, denouncing ICE with all the verve that a traitorous windbag could conjure, while claiming to be a leader in “the resistance.” However, it wasn’t really about any of that, as Crowley finally seemed to be aware. Cringingly, he lamented the fact that he “was born White.” In a truly pathetic line of rhetoric, he expressed frustration that his Latinx opponent was making the campaign all “about race.” Ha! When does that ever work?
Of course, Trump couldn’t resist, quickly salting the wound with some entertaining tweets, calling Crowley a “big hater” who should’ve “been more respectful to his President.” The border battle and accompanying J-Left hysteria have set the stage for a 2018 midterms that should be focused on race, even if most Republicans are still too timid to acknowledge the immutable reality.
Irrelevant Republicans who keep prattling on about the Constitution, conservative values, and limited government will continue to fall by the wayside. Meanwhile, White Democrats will continue to lose their legitimacy and relevance to the party’s brown base. Sure it’s now a cliché, but it’s very true: in a multicultural society, all politics is racial. At a national level, it slowly began to manifest during Bush’s 2nd term, and it’s been gaining steam ever since. In 2016, the sorting process really accelerated. The midterm showdown is providing another high-octane boost. This is not going to stop, slowdown, or get any more civil.
