Most of the people whom I like or trust believe—and believe rather strongly—that what Trump has done rises to a crime…but impeachment runs the risk of hijacking the debate in the Democratic primary, as well as further embittering Trump’s supporters and souring them on the democratic process.
A full-blown impeachment trial distracts Democrats from their natural strengths: channeling Americans’ anger against massive inequality and economic injustice and moving Americans toward what I’ve described as the “economics of meaning” in which economic or class critiques are a means to focus anger, create meaning, and build solidarity.
Being lost in leftist Shadi Hamid’s warning to his fellow socialists about the impeachment of President Trump, this report continues, is anything having to do with reality—as where he and the socialist friends he trusts only need to “believe” that Trump did something wrong, ordinary and sane peoples require such things as “evidence” and “proof” before deciding anyone’s guilt—thus exposing the logical fault in his argument that “embittered Trump supporters” will sour on the democratic process—with the real truth being that all Trump’s supporters want is a free and fair democratic process these socialists are denying him—all of whose voices are being echoed today by a British firefighter union activist named Paul Embery, who in telling his nation’s Labour Party socialists why they lost his vote, and those of all of his friends and neighbors for the first time in any of their lifetimes, simply stated:
So there we have it.
It turns out that the British working-class was not, in the end, willing to throw its weight behind a London-centric, youth-obsessed, middle-class party that preached the gospels of liberal cosmopolitanism and class war.
Who’d have thought it?
Well, me for a start.And plenty of others who had been loyal to the party over many years and desperately wanted to see a Labour government, only to be dismissed as ‘reactionaries’ who held a ‘nostalgic’ view of the working-class.
It barely needs saying that these election results are an utter catastrophe for Labour.
For the party to have failed to dislodge the Tories after nearly a decade of austerity and three years of political chaos is bad enough.But forthe so-called Red Wall to have crumbled so spectacularly underlines the sheer scale of the failure.
Labour’s meltdown in these places will come as no surprise to anyone who was paying attention and wasn’t blinded by ideology or fanaticism.
Some of us had long warned that working-class voters across post-industrial and small-town Britain were becoming increasingly alienated from the party.But we were banging our heads against a brick wall.
We sounded the alarm bells again earlier this year when, in the local and European elections, Labour haemorrhaged support in several working-class communities across the north and Midlands.
But the woke liberals and Toytown revolutionaries who now dominate the party didn’t listen to us.
They truly thought that ‘one more heave’ would bring victory.
They believed that constantly hammering on about economic inequality would be enough to get Labour over the line.
In doing so, they made a major miscalculation: they failed to grasp that working-class voters desire something more than just economic security; they want cultural security too.
One of the first persons in the world hearing the “alarm bell” being rung to warn these socialists of what was to come because of their abandonment of ordinary working peoples wanting economic and cultural security in favor of every “woke” issue and “politically correct” outrage imaginable, this report concludes, was Donald Trump—who in 2016, raced from his New York City penthouse like a political firefighter to douse the raging socialist inferno that was consuming his nation’s ordinary working peoples—tens-of-millions of whom raced to him for protection and placed him into power in the most historic election ever witnessed in American history—and whom today reigns as this nation’s Teflon Trump whose unwavering and devoted supporters lovingly call their “Showman-In-Chief”—and who is actually thriving while wading through the swamp waters of impeachment his socialist enemies have poured all around him—an impeachment hoax Trump has now weaponized to boost his messaging and historic fundraising, as this was the inevitable outcome of a system run by socialist elites everyone knew was coming—and which still sees these clueless deranged socialists unable to understand one of Trump’s most famous statements of the 2016 election: “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose any voters”—a statement horrifying to these socialists unable to understand what he meant—but was explained most recently to a leftist fake news CNN reporter, who after asking a Trump supporter if she’d still support him if he shot someone, saw him being confused into panic where she fired back “Why did he shoot him?”—a question all normal peoples would ask—but not to include socialist arsonists.
