After decades of playing the race and gender cards, so to speak, the Democratic party has reached a point that they are using the tactics on each
Who would have thought that a black man and any color woman would have wound up running against each other as the main contenders in the primaries,
especially in a single party.
Yes, the media have become so shallow that stupid drunken pop stars and untalented singers making fools of themselves garner almost as much air time
as the real issues, but the joke here is really on the Democratic party.
Bill Clinton today or yesterday was perfectly correct when he chided a correspondent for framing the race in Florida as one of race and gender.
It is ridiculous that it even matters in this day and age and you'd think that the ones who would make the least of race and gender would be the
party who has front runners who are black and female.
They could agree to set a better tone for the race and also set an example for America, but they are hamstrung by the media who now that the subject
has been framed in racial terms by the candidates won't let them forget it.
Repeatedly, studies show that most journalists are left-leaning at best and most of the journalists of this era have grown up having gender, racial,
and class conflict spoon-fed to them in our left-leaning universities.
This is what they know (or more correctly, think). These are the issues that form the substrate for every other issue in all the world.
The Democratic party has built a house made from the bricks of Marxist ideology--socialism and class conflict--and now they have succeeded in locking
themselves in that house with the media banging at the door and they are looking around for someone to blame.
This mess won't stick to the Republicans, because they didn't create the mother of all battles in the Democratic party and it's not going to stick
to the media either, because they are doing to the Democrats what the left have trained them to do under such circumstances.
It is a precious dilemma.
Obama has his trump card and Hillary has hers and now when it counts the most, the cards have canceled each other out and it seems that it is the
voters who have rendered them useless. Jokers are no longer wild, if you will.
