Everything Was Fine Till It Was Racist

Up until the polls closed on Election Day, the Democrats’ secret strategy was to rely on a system of racism and misogyny to get Hillary Clinton elected. They openly bragged about doing it.

In fact, as Jonah Goldberg noted Friday, the Democrats were even on television bragging about their open and widely known use of a key racist strategy. They were bragging about it and declared that this racism was how Barack Obama got elected and Hillary Clinton would get elected too.

It was a sure thing.

It is called the Electoral College. The Electoral College gave the Democrats a near insurmountable advantage over the Republicans. It was a “blue wall” that benefited them in New England where Republicans supposedly cannot win, the Rust Belt, the Midwest, and the left coast.

But Trump shook up the Electoral College map. On Election Night, the Democrats finally lost their final grip on the Rust Belt where their environmentalist policies have devastated local economies.

So now?

Now the Electoral College must be scrapped. It is a vile and racist institution that a group of white, male misogynist, racists created to keep hermaphrodidic, multi-racial, homosexual, transgendered, and multi-gendered candidates in the back of the bus.

This is why it is so hard to take their complaints about the Electoral College seriously.

They were openly bragging about what an advantage they had because of it. But the moment that advantage went away, suddenly we have to scrap the very system they relied on for years for an advantage with the Presidency.

What stands out more than anything is that if the Democrats really do think the Electoral College is a racist, misogynist institution, they were willing to use that racism and misogyny for their own gain and advantage and therefore have the dirty hands they think only Republicans are capable of having.
