Democrats often fail. Their policies invariably destroy everything they touch, so it’s very difficult to pick just ten Democrat fails of the last decade. Still, these ten political and public relations disasters stand out over the last 10 years as noteworthy. When you’re arguing with your Democrat friends, it’s helpful to know these things occurred.
August 31, 2020 – Nancy Pelosi gets her hair done indoors, in violation of Democrat COVID-19 dictates that forbid indoor hair salon appointments. Once caught, the bug-eyed, skeletal Pelosi mumbled around her ever-mobile dentures that the whole thing was a “setup,” raising the question of whether someone who can be “set up” by a salon owner should have a government security clearance.
September 9, 2016 – Hillary Clinton calls Trump supporters a “basket of deplorables.” While we all knew what Hillary thought of us, the fact that she said it out loud betrayed just how intensely Democrats hate anyone who does not agree with them. In the mind of a Democrat, you aren’t just wrong; you’re a very bad person for failing to be persuaded by their brilliance. Republicans gladly adopt the label, “deplorable,” and it is used as a weapon against Democrats for years to come.
July 13, 2012 – Barack Obama says, “You didn’t build that.” While Democrats and Obama himself would try to claim that his remarks were taken out of context, the full speech doesn’t make Obama look any better. He, and Democrats, don’t believe in the individual. They believe only in the collective, and where that’s concerned, only in the ability of an all-powerful government to force people to obey. Obama “said the quiet part out loud” many times in office, but this fail was the moment when his real feelings about individual citizens were most evident. It was essential to understanding how his self-centered mind works.
14 July 2015 – Obama administration ships pallets of cash to Iran as part of the disastrous “Iran deal,” an agreement made from weakness that did little to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons. It was essentially a weakling United States giving in to extortion by Iran and giving them funding to use for international terrorism. Trump immediately pulled the US out of that awful deal, which was the right thing to do. It remains to be seen how much damage this agreement will do to the US and to the world when Biden reenters the terrible deal.
March 23, 2010 – Obamacare passed into law. The “Affordable Care Act” wasn’t just unconstitutional; it was so unconstitutional that leftist Justice Roberts had to rewrite it from the bench in order to allow it to pass. Obama was made to look like a fool when “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” turned out to be a lie. The ACA increased costs for everyone, did not appreciably increase access to care, and reduced overall quality of care for Americans, all while empowering the IRS to snoop into whether Americans had healthcare (and punish them if they didn’t). Few laws expose authoritarian, totalitarian Democrats for what they are quite like the ACA.
May 15, 2013 – The IRS targeting scandal starts to result in people losing their jobs. While Obama never suffered any consequences for weaponizing the most hated government agency to use against political opponents, the damage to his reputation was significant. Exposing the scandal also made it harder for Democrats to keep using the IRS in this manner.
December 14, 2020 – Weapons from “Fast and Furious” figure prominently in the death of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in Arizona. The ensuing scandal again does not touch Obama or Eric Holder, because laws are for little people and Republicans only. It does, however, seriously impede Obama’s attempts to claim his administration was “scandal free.” It also exposes the gun control hypocrisy of Democrats, remaining a severe black mark on all involved.
September 12, 2018 – The Kavanaugh Hearings see the breaking of the manufactured scandal meant to derail Kavanaugh’s nomination. The result is that the entire world sees that Democrats are willing to lie and manufacture allegations in order to destroy nominees they don’t like — something Republicans have not historically done. While nothing really changes and Kavanaugh is confirmed, it does recast the historical attacks on Justice Clarence Thomas as the fraud they were. Attacking Kavanaugh does serious damage to the Democrats’ reputations overall, causing them to soft-pedal when it comes to Amy Coney Barrett.
October 26, 2020 – The confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett reveals the Democrats’ court-packing agenda. While they refused to attack her the way they did Kavanaugh with the elections so close, they nonetheless reveal their intent to pack the court. Democrats have now publicly admitted they don’t give a damn about the law; they only care about making sure they have a vote-proof majority in all branches of government.
November 3, 2020 – The widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election results in Joe Biden claiming to have received more votes than any president in history. The mathematically impossible vote tallies mean that Democrats have executed their authoritarian end game. The United States is no longer a representative republic; it is now a banana republic in which elections go to whomever can stuff the ballot box fastest. All Democrats in office are revealed to be illegitimate.
There’s no telling what Democrat fails we’ll see as we enter the next decade. What IS certain, however, is that we’ll all have to find a way to live under the crushing boot of Democrat rule. That may not sound terribly cheerful, but trust me: there ARE ways to live your life and even prosper despite the fact that authoritarian Democrats are in charge. We here at Red As Hell will stand with you every step of the way as we all work out how to do that.
