Quite a few old-school Democrats are beginning to wonder if the party learned the right lessons from Hillary Clinton’s defeat in November. These Democrats, many of whom joined the party around the time Hillary’s husband was making his whistle-stop tours through the rural South, see a political apparatus that seems geared to go further to the left, further towards an exclusive party of minorities and social justice interests, and further away from the majority of voters – a strategy that is, by its very nature, doomed to fail when the numbers come in.
But when you look at the way the Democrats behave – even in their hiring practices – it is clear that this is less about political calculation and more about a systemic infection that has spread throughout the party like a virus. Just take a gander at a recent email from the DNC’s data services manager, who is looking to fill vacancies in the organization’s IT department. In it, she asked employees to be on the lookout for people who could come in and work in the DNC’s tech division. In her email, DNC Data Services Manager Madeleine Leader said that the organization was searching for a “staff of diverse voices and life experiences,” which is of course exactly what you need when filling out computer tech jobs.
But even though that phrase would probably be enough to get the point across to a bunch of young liberals, she felt the need to add: “I personally would prefer that you not forward to cisgender straight white males, as they are already in the majority.”
“Cisgender,” for those of you falling behind in the vernacular of the SJW left, means a person who identifies as the gender they were “assigned” at birth. It replaces the term we used to use, which is nothing, because there was never any need for one.
A source inside the DNC told the Daily Wire that Democrats like Leader were still missing the crucial fact that, without cisgender straight white men, they have a party doomed to lose election after election. “Clearly,” they said, “the DNC is doubling down on a failed strategy that has alienated staffers and voters alike. We want to be judged based on the quality of our work, not on identity politics. How can we trust the leadership of the DNC if they don’t even trust us?”
But that’s just the thing – it isn’t a strategy. Not anymore. No one is actually THAT stupid. It’s just that these Democrats have been so brainwashed by their years of blogging and their college classes in feminism and intersectionality that they literally can’t find the door to their own bubble. They aren’t using identity politics as a way to get votes anymore, they simply don’t know what else to do with themselves!
Eventually, the entire party is going to implode under the weight of its own absurdity…but things in DemocratWorld might get really crazy before that day arrives. Well, crazier.
