Virginia: When Identity Groups Collide

American Thinker: For decades, lacking a coherent and acceptable broad-based platform, the Democrats have cobbled together their victories by playing the identity politics game. Reaching out to different groups, playing on their sense of victimization and oppression, dissolving the very bonds of civic cohesion, and pretending to a savior role for each group. Of course, if people thought about it, no one is less oppressed than a modern-day American, and the special interests and pleadings of these disparate groups often collide and conflict, but that seemingly passes beyond their ken or notice. This week, in contrast to the unifying State of the Union address by the President which was coherent, consistent, and uplifting, the three top officials in Virginia — all Democrats — are engaged in a bloody battle which looks to disunite the Democratic women from the black voters of the state. It’s not helping the media either, especially not the Washington Post, owned by Jeff Bezos himself, embroiled in a marital scandal and fight with David Pecker, the owner of the National Enquirer. (Who can beat the NY Post’s front page on Friday “Bezos Exposes Pecker”?)

The imbroglio in Virginia has inspired lots of humorous digs on the right, not the least of which is the rewriting of the motto “Virginia is for Lovers” into “Virginia is for Losers” as indeed the party is now a laughingstock with no good way out of the dilemma.  more here

  1. OK, I think I’m on to something big. None of us will have to work any more, and we won’t even have to be in the ‘unwilling’ classification.
    Earlier today I was reading about how a prominent democrat in virginia said that they wouldn’t replace the current AG for his racist blackface history. He said that to do so would have him replaced with a republican who had different ‘values.’ I thought the AG was being asked to resign because of his values, of which he apparently has none. Then it hit me-
    The democrats talk about having a ‘carbon tax’ and also the selling of ‘carbon credits’ for excessive emissions. A bogus scam, certainly, but, whatever. We should create a ‘values tax’ and then we could sell ‘value credits’ to the democrats who don’t have any. It makes as much sense as the carbon crap, and just think of the market size.
    If this takes off, we could expand it to include identity groups, genders and all sorts of things. There will be discounts and rewards for intersectionality as well as diversity. And it doesn’t cost anything if you own it to begin with.
