The 2020 Democrats have two strategies.
1. Promising to take money from some Americans to give to other Americans. Or, as I call it, the Vote Buying Scheme with other people’s money.
And 2. Attacking America to suck up to a specific Identity Group. Or, as I call it, “Evil America done you wrong and I’m here to fix it!”
Sometimes these two plans of attack are joined together.
For example, Reparations. This is a vote buying scheme with other people’s money ostensibly to correct how America of the past done blacks wrong.
Or, in the case of Elizabeth Warren, there is promising Indians billions of taxpayer dollars ostensibly because America done Indians wrong (but really because Liz feels tremendously guilty about pretending to be Indian).
Whatever the case, there is a Bad Guy (ie the United States), the Victims (ie Blacks or Indians) and a heroic Savior-in-Waiting (ie the Democrat Presidential Candidate) who will right all the wrongs done to them by evil, evil America.
Obama’s incessant need to apologize for America on the world stage seems quaint and small fry in comparison to what these 2020 Democrats are doing.
They don’t just apologize for America. They condemn, attack and vilify America and its history — all in an effort to win the Presidency of the very country they hate.
Take a look at this insipid tweet from Kamala Harris.
Watch your back, Liz. Kamala is making a play for the Indians … by attacking Seventeenth Century America.
Fact check: Not exactly “the truth.”
Either Kamala is deeply ignorant of history or she’s so desperate to get her poll numbers up again she’ll rewrite history in order to pander to American Indians.
This is one of the benefits of the Left taking over public education. History is the least taught subject in public schools. As a result, idiots like Kamala Harris can peddle any simplistic, unrealistic account of history and nobody’s the wiser.
There’s a Thanksgiving episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer called “Pangs” in which Buffy ends up battling a vengeful Indian spirit.
Buffy and her pals are kvetching over the plight of the indigenous people as they prepare Thanksgiving dinner until Spike the Vampire has had enough:
I just can’t take this mamby-pamby
boo-hooing over the bloody Indians!
The preferred term is –
You won! All right? You came in
and you killed them and you took
their land. That’s what
conquering nations do! That’s
what Caesar did, and he’s not going
around saying “I came, I
conquered, I felt really bad about
it!” The history of the world is
not people making friends. You
had better weapons, you massacred
them, end of story!
Nations conquered indigenous people everywhere on this planet. It isn’t unique to the United States. Nor is it unique to the French, Spanish, Dutch and British who first colonized the Americas.
The Phoenicians (Lebanon and Syria) conquered North Africa and Southern Iberia (Spain). That’s why you can visit a Phoenician fortress in Malaga Spain. [I’ve been. It’s pretty awesome.]
The Macedonians conquered the Phoenicians.
And then there were the Romans who conquered pretty much everybody.
Those Romans went all the way up into the British Isles and conquered the indigenous peoples there (the Picts). You don’t find Roman ruins in Britain because the Brits bought them on Ebay for crap’s sake.
The first kings of England spoke French. Why? Because the French conquered England.
This is the history of the world.
Does Kamala not know that?
And the tribes took land from each other, slaughtered and enslaved each other and the victors kept the spoils— Jim Hanson (@Uncle_Jimbo) August 21, 2019
This happened across the entire planet and still does in some places
But we now have the rule of law and these things have been adjudicated here

Kamala relitigating the colonization of the Americas which began half a millennia ago is even more out of touch with 21st Century America than relitigating busing.
Truthfully, I don’t know if Kamala is angling for the support of American Indians or is simply using Indians as a way to appeal to white, Liberal suburban voters who feel endless pangs of guilt over things they had nothing to do with and can’t change.
Every nation of the world has a past that is drenched in blood. For some nations of the world they’re still swimming in it.
This knee-jerk virtue-signaling doesn’t change our past.
And unless Kamala is vowing that as President she will divest from North America and dismantle the United States in order to return it to the peoples we conquered, the only reason to say such incendiary things is to continue the Left’s mission to attack and divide the American people.
In fact, it’s a divide and conquer strategy.
Stop and marvel at the irony of that.
Leftists have no problem with steamrolling over the people, history and culture of the United States in order to remake it to their liking.
Which means they have far more in common with the original colonizing nations than they do with the modern American people.
