Democrats Hate America
When Stacey Abrams expresses contempt for Georgia, she speaks for a larger party problem.
People “get bitter” and “cling to guns or religion.” “Deplorables.” “Chumps.” These are just three examples of Democrats who simply couldn’t keep hiding the contempt they have for average Americans. It was no different as Stacey Abrams, running for the Democrat gubernatorial nomination in Georgia, called her state “the worst state in the country to live.” She’s welcome to leave at any time, but that’s her pitch to elect her governor of the state she still claims she won in 2018. It’s every Democrat’s pitch for whatever office.
Democrats would argue that what they really mean is that Republicans are wrecking things. “I am tired of hearing about how we’re the best state in the country to do business when we are the worst state in the country to live,” Abrams complained. By way of arguing that it’s Governor Brian Kemp’s fault, she later tweeted: “GA may be #1 place for biz, but we’re #48 in mental health, #2 in uninsured. #1 in maternal mortality & new HIV cases, #9 in gun violence. For too many, Kemp’s Georgia doesn’t include them. Why? Because #KempDoesntCare.”
Just to rebut one of those things at random, the vast majority of that “gun violence” is committed in the Democrat-run inner city of Atlanta, and it’s predominantly black-on-black crime.
This isn’t Abrams first drive-by insult of Georgia’s residents, either. In 2018, the former romance novelist proclaimed, “People shouldn’t have to go into agriculture or hospitality in Georgia to make a living.” In 2021, she attacked Atlanta business owners by way of calling for boycott of sorts — she successfully lobbied for Major League Baseball to move the All-Star Game out of Atlanta to protest the state’s voter integrity law, costing business owners in the city, many of them minorities, an estimated $100 million.
Then she had the gall to blame Republicans for inflicting that harm.
The biggest narrative for Abrams is racial grievance, claiming that the state’s efforts to secure election integrity — efforts that have yielded record early turnout and big increases in minority turnout — are somehow racist “Jim Crow” throwbacks. Disparaging Republicans as racist is Democrat Playbook 101.
Which brings us to the fact that this story isn’t about Stacey Abrams. Well, at least not only about her.
The entire Democrat Party is full of people who aren’t interested in good faith arguments about policy or ideas. They’re invested in dividing the country into opposing factions based on race, sex, or whatever other attribute they can contrive. They slander their fellow Americans as racist bigots if we don’t go along with this division or submit to their agenda.
They say, as Andrew Cuomo once did in rebuttal to Donald Trump’s Make America Great Again slogan, that America was “never that great.”
When they do find success, as when Barack Obama was surging to the presidency in 2008, they say, as Michelle Obama did then, “For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country.”
When they lose, they cry about “collusion” with Russia or “systemic racism” or whatever the bogeyman of choice may be to excuse their loss as not their fault. They blame anyone and everyone else.
Democrats seem to collectively believe they have the divine right of kings in America. If they’re not in power, it’s because evil forces have cheated them out of it. If they are in power, the only reason anything goes wrong is those same evil forces undermining the good they’re trying to do. In the end, all they have is division, disparagement, and deceit.
