Abandon ship

The Democratic Party hasn’t begun to accept how badly the bottom has been ripped out.

Quotes from the New York Times, yesterday:

They are part of a growing movement in rural America that immerses many young people in a culture — not just conservative news outlets but also home and church environments — that emphasizes contemporary conservative values. It views liberals as loathsome, misinformed and weak, even dangerous …

While many blame poor decisions by Mrs. Clinton for her loss, in an environment like this, the Democratic candidate probably didn’t matter. And the Democratic Party may not for generations to come. The Republican brand is strong in rural America — perhaps even strong enough to withstand a disastrous Trump presidency.

Rural conservatives feel that their world is under siege, and that Democrats are an enemy to be feared and loathed.

Loathsome and loathed. There are no stronger words.

An interesting sidenote is that the column’s writer, Robert Leonard, references J. C. Watts, an exCongressman.

That’s Julius Ceasar Watts, an African American, who was a star football player for the Oklahoma Sooners.

There are two social tides running here, both bad for the Democratic Party.

If the Party ever sends its current staffers and stars, the people who were all inspired by Barack Obama, out to the heartland shires, they’re going to get fried. (Not literally. More a possibly permanent persona non grata-type thing, a shunning.)

Or if they think a coalition including a smaller number of the we/us college-educated whiteys from the right colleges can eke out a win if just enough of the rest of white America dies, they’re done, too.
