From a political perspective, Bruce (Caitlyn) Jenner’s true bravery was coming out publicly as Republican, not transgender. In Hollywood (a cliche of hypocritical limousine liberals like Angelina Jolie), being Republican is equivalent to a 21st century Underground Railroad. Something hidden and said in whispers: “to the right, to freedom!” When making such a public pronouncement, one either has to be untouchable — an industry titan like Clint Eastwood — or suffer Stacey Dash’s fate of being blackballed and fired by her representation (CESD, secured only last September). Ms. Dash said, “I just lost my agent because of my political beliefs.” As a modern day virtual Harriet Tubman, might our country be better served by putting Ms. Dash’s face on that 20 dollar bill?
That’s something America’s first black president would never advocate. Why not? Because everything progressive Barack Obama does is literally a skin-deep political calculation. Therefore, as Ms. Dash is conservative, her views don’t fit his fascist worldview. For example, Mr. Obama’s “conversion” to gay marriage proponent wasn’t about equal rights, it was about pumping a dwindling funding source. (And everybody knows: Mr. Obama is all about fundraising. Similarly, corrupt Hillary Clinton is all about the Benjamins in “Clinton Cash”.)
To Democrats, what the almighty dollar buys — political power — is their god. They care nothing for the rule of law unless it dovetails with their “1984”-style hard left agenda. Likewise, they care nothing for the lives of their supporters (read: the death toll in Chicago). Minorities are simply pawns on a chess board to be manipulated — and sacrificed. Speaking of pawns, the Democrat Party is running two transgender candidates, both coincidentally named Misty. Is it just me or does Misty Snow (Utah) and Misty Plowright (Colorado) sound like the stage names for adult entertainers rather than serious political contenders? In any case, they both have a porn star’s shot at success. Even the Democrats acknowledge that amounts to zero in November.
Recall that Utah has not elected a Democrat to the U.S. Senate during Misty Snow’s 30 years of life. As Democrats are all about political power, bet your bottom dollar they would field a more traditional candidate if they had any possibility of winning. Since they don’t, they very happily make empty political gestures that cost them nothing:
“We’re going to lose anyway; we might as well make a statement about inclusion,” gay state Sen. Jim Dabakis (D-UT) told the Associated Press.
