El American’s Idiot of the Week award this time goes to the Democratic Party as a whole. We could have given it to several people for their particular idiocies, but we give it to the entire party — not only because all the nominees had in common being Democrats — because it is also clear that their idiocies are the inevitable consequence of the inconsistencies of the party’s stance.
On the one hand, we have the very feminist Democratic Party harassing a woman from its own party, U.S. Senator Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, for daring to oppose Biden’s $3.5 trillion spending plan, which she considers “unsustainable.”
It’s not that the party is trying to convince her with arguments to cast her yes vote, but that they have literally hounded her to the point of chasing her into the bathroom. The bathroom! You read that right. The same feminists who say that a small comment or a glance is a synonym for rape or sexual harassment, are the ones who are cornering and berating a woman in the bathroom for not blindly obeying the party’s designs.
And what has Biden said about it? Has he harshly criticized the harassment? Has he protected his senator and called for peaceful dialogue despite differences? Well, no. He responded with a smirk, saying that “I don’t think they’re appropriate tactics, but it happens to everybody,” adding, The only people it doesn’t happen to are people who have Secret Service standing around them.”
Of course, no condemnation from feminism is present or expected. Moreover, both Biden and feminist media references such as Jezebel have justified the harassment.
Being a feminist means obeying the party.
The Democratic Party and the “latinxs”
With Hispanic Heritage Month here, the Democrats are doubling down on their campaign to try to capture the Latino vote. It seems that the Democratic Party’s “Latino-ness” is just as genuine as its feminism, as they insist on using the ridiculous term “latinxs” to appeal to Latinos.
Just as “feminism” is whatever they say it is, they also continue to insist that Latinos must be “latinxs.” No matter what, even though virtually no Latinos use the term, or even claim to despise it.
During the election campaign, Joe Biden said that if you did not vote Democrat “you were not black.” Now it seems that if you don’t say “latinxs“, you are not a true Latino. Actually, we could venture to say that if you hear someone use the word “latinxs,” the closest they come to being one is if they have ever hummed a Ricky Martin song.
You are only “latinx” if you blindly obey the party.
The Democratic Party and masks
Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), from the most left-wing of the Democratic Party, has been caught admitting that she wears a mask only when cameras are present. Her hypocrisy is of such caliber that she justifies herself by saying that she does so because she has “Republicans following her around.”
That is to say that the party forces you to wear masks and comply with arbitrary authoritarian measures, while they skip them whenever they can and, on top of that, the blame for everything is, of course, on the Republicans who are following her to unmask her — well, in this case to mask her.
Presumably, she will be able to get rid of the mask in the bathrooms, because no Republican could dare to chase her with a camera in hand without being accused of being a sexist harasser.
This goes to show that wearing masks is not a sanitary measure, but — just like saying “feminist” or “latinx” — is a mere sign of obedience to the Democratic Party.
The fact that the Democratic Party has become so radicalized towards the more woke left, makes it inevitable that all this kind of idiocy and incoherence becomes more and more evident since it is the logical consequence of ideological premises that do not hold up. The truth is that in El American’s Idiot of the Week we can’t get enough.
