Dems still confused by racist, hateful, clueless GOP voters

I Vote Pro-Life (woman holding sign)Leaders of the Democratic Party keep talking down to Christian voters even while claiming they want to reach them and earn their vote.

At a gathering of far-left activists, DNC chairman Tom Perez complained that pastors' conservative sermons are one reason Democrats' message doesn't resonate with churchgoers.

"Their principle sources of information are Fox News, their NRA newsletter, and the pulpit on Sunday," Perez complained to the gathering of Demand Justice, which formed this year to fight for "progressive change" in the federal courts.

"And it should come as a surprise to no one," he added, "that our message doesn't penetrate."

Perez's rant singled out the abortion issue, when he complained that the churchgoers are told to focus on Roe v Wade but ignore other issues.

Kristin Day of Democrats for Life tells OneNewsNow there is not a single leading Democrat who understands the pro-life right.

"With the Democratic candidates for president who have been named," she says, "I don't see one that can really bring the party together so far: Cory Booker, Kamala Harris or Elizabeth Warren."

It's not new to hear Democratic leaders suggest conservative voters are brainless, hateful and racist, but many of those voters have good memories, too.

"So it's not surprising then," Barack Obama told a San Francisco fund-raiser in 2008, "that they get bitter, and they cling to guns, or religion, or antipathy towards people who aren't like them."

Then-Democratic primary opponent Hillary Clinton said at the time she was "taken aback by the demeaning remarks," but it wasn't too long until the presidential nominee was describing a "basket of deplorables" to a similar audience.

"The racists, sexists, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic," Clinton said. "You name it."

Day says Democrats would be wise to get over the "fear" of pro-life people, suggesting that the far-left party would be wise to embrace a pro-life politician such as Louisiana's governor, John Bel Edwards.

But the far-left Democratic Party doesn't seem to be listening to that suggestion.
