For decades, the Democrat Party’s rule of politics has been, “Never say the quiet part out loud.”
A good example of this is abortion. What they said out loud was “Abortion should be safe, legal and rare.” But they never believed that. It wasn’t their goal in the least. What they really wanted — the quiet part — was “Abortion on demand with no restrictions.” But they never said the quiet part out loud.
Likewise on guns. Democrats for years argued that they didn’t want to ban private gun ownership. “Nobody is going to take away your guns. That’s just kooky talk and the people who say that’s what we want are lying to you. We just want common sense reforms.”
But what they really want – the quiet part – is “Hell, yes we’re going to take your guns!”
But they never said the quiet part out loud.
Problem is, the new crop of Democrat activists don’t follow the “never say the quiet part out loud” rule.
Now, they proudly and loudly say the things the Democrat Party wanted hidden.
And all the traditional Democrats in Congress and in the media are having a heck of a time putting a lid on it.
But you can’t un-ring that bell. Sorry guys.
The latest example of saying the quiet part out loud is this moronic “Defund the Police” movement we’re seeing now.
The radicals who now pretty much control the Democrat Party aren’t shy about openly calling for the dismantling of police departments. And over the last several days they have repeatedly advocated for abolishing law enforcement.
The Minneapolis city council has already decided to get rid of the Minneapolis Police Department. And their feckless mayor pretending he doesn’t support that isn’t stopping them.
Naturally, with saying the quiet part out loud, these calls to dismantle and abolish the police has been met with horror and disgust. Then again, most of what the Democrats actually want to do to us is met with horror and disgust. That’s exactly why they never say the quiet part out loud.
And since Americans are reacting with revulsion at the idea of getting rid of police departments, the Democrats and their media handmaids are desperately trying to shove that genie back into the bottle.
Um, honey. If you’re redirecting funds away from the police that is, by definition “defunding the police.” Your context does nothing to change this. And if they’re “not always calling for dismantling departments,” then some of them are. But nice attempt at spin, Yamiche.
Actually “interpretation” is the misleading part. The activists are the ones being direct.
Understand, all of these guys who are trying to “explain” and claim “nuance” know exactly what “Defund the Police” means. They know exactly what these radicals want.
The problem isn’t that it is “misleading” or needs “context.” The problem is the new crop of Democrat activists are not living by the rule to not say the quiet part out loud.
So the Democrats, who for years have mastered the art of keeping their true objectives hidden, now have to try and finesse the situation in order to undo the damage saying the quiet part out loud has done.
What Minneapolis just did was not a “nuanced” approach that could be “misleading without interpretation.”
They are out and out ending the Minneapolis Police Department and “creating a new transformative model for cultivating safety in Minneapolis.”
Now, they have no idea what this new “transformative model for cultivating safety” will be. But no matter. The goal is to rid the city of law enforcement.
They are saying the quiet part out loud, much to the Democrat Party’s chagrin.
The new Democrat activists, unmoored from history and self-alienated from the American people, are not savvy enough to realize that the majority of their agenda is repugnant to us. So they blunder ahead, damn the consequences. And for the establishment Democrats and their media handmaids, this is causing all kinds of problems.
If only these new guys would follow the rule and not say the quiet part out loud. But they can’t.
Like this utter fool:
It would be one thing if the loudest voices were just powerless dummies like David Hogg. But this movement to “Defund the Police” is endorsed by sitting members of Congress – the same sitting members who never tire of saying the quiet part out loud: Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
And right now, those members of “The Squad” are the tail wagging the House Democrats. They run the show, not Nancy Pelosi. And while Nancy Pelosi has enough sense not to say the quiet part out loud, she is the one who gave these radicals an outsized platform in Congress.
I think Cernovich is exactly right. The Democrats and the media cannot afford to give a platform to the people who fail to follow the “never say the quiet part out loud” rule. So instead, they’re going to lie, obfuscate and prattle on about “nuance” and “context.”
But as I said, you can’t un-ring this bell.
And this bell is going to be all the more difficult to un-ring because these new big-mouth radicals are not only saying the quiet part out loud, they’re openly acknowledging why Pelosi-style Democrats don’t want them to.
And by the way, the fact that ppl are scrambling to repackage this whole conversation to make it palatable for largely affluent, white suburban “swing” voters again points to how much more electoral & structural power these communities have relative to others— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) June 9, 2020
Just for awareness!
Ouch! Nothing like letting the cat out of the bag.
AOC is actually making my point here. The Democrats have kept their true agenda hidden because they knew their true agenda would be met with majority resistance among voters. Where she’s wrong is her claim that it is only “affluent, white suburban ‘swing’ voters” who object to the insanity of dismantling police departments. The majority of Americans regardless of income or political leaning hate this idea of defunding the police. It isn’t “affluent” white suburban voters.
What AOC is doing here is acknowledging that turning voters off is a price she is willing to pay to be able to openly admit their true objectives. And that has never been the rule among the Democrat Party.
Sorry, Nancy. This is your party now. The veil has been lifted by your own side. And we know what you guy really want to do to us.
And from now until November we’re going to hang this around your neck like a Kente cloth.
