The chief difference between Democrats and most everyone else? Most everyone else would rather be left alone to live their lives as they see fit. Democrats, however, are constitutionally incapable of leaving anyone alone.
American Greatness: Howard Schultz is discovering that the Democratic Party doesn’t really believe in lower case “d” democracy.
Is Schultz, the former CEO of Starbucks and potential 2020 independent Presidential candidate, shocked by the response of some Democrats? If so, he’s more out of touch with the Democratic voter base than he realizes.
Schultz appears on course to learn just how quickly the anti-Trump cult will Hannibal Lecter-ize anyone who tries to upset the natural order of their political universe.
The whipped cream-delicious irony of the Democrats directing their cannibalistic ire at Schultz is that he once headed the corporate embodiment of affluent, white Democrat privilege; Starbucks is run by mostly affluent whites. Like Starbucks or hate it, Schultz was a master brand marketer.
But none of that matters now. Third-party candidates bring out the true Leninist character of the Democratic Party if those candidates hurt Democratic odds. Democrats are interested in one thing: conquering. This is why I said in the months leading up to the 2016 presidential election that if Hillary Clinton were to win, the Democrats would hold the presidency, federal courts, and U.S. Supreme Court forever (or at least as long as “forever” lasts in a political world subject to contingency and free will).
The bottom line: The Democrats’ objective is to make our nation a de facto one-party state. They aren’t interested in representing or governing; they’re interested in ruling. MORE
