Will Diversity Be the Death of the Democrats?

U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- Both of America's great national parties are coalitions. But it is the Democratic Party that never ceases to celebrate diversity — racial, religious, ethnic, cultural — as its own and as America's “greatest strength.”

Understandably so, for the party is home to a multitude of minorities.

It is the domain of the LGBTQ movement. In presidential elections, Democrats win 70 percent of Hispanics, Jews and Asian-Americans, and 90 percent of African-Americans.

Yet, lately, the party seems to be careening into a virtual war of all against all.

Democratic Governor Ralph Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring of Virginia have both admitted to using blackface.

Northam imitated Michael Jackson's “moonwalk” in a 1984 dance contest. Herring, in 1980 at the University of Virginia, did a blackface impression of rap icon Kurtis Blow, who called it ugly and degrading.

The resignations of both have been demanded by Virginia's black leadership. Northam and Herring, however, are defying the demands.

Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, only the second black ever to win statewide office, has been charged by two women with rape. And the demands for his resignation are growing louder and most insistent.

Yet if Fairfax is forced out, while the white governor and white attorney general get a pass, black leaders warn, all hell is going to bust loose.

The Democratic Party of Virginia was already convulsed over all the monuments, statues, schools, parks, highways and streets that bear the names of slave owners, Confederate soldiers and 19th- and 20th-century segregationists.

Across the Potomac, Ilhan Omar, the first ever Somali-American to serve in Congress, and a Muslim, ignited a firestorm last week when she gave this as the reason Congress faithfully votes the AIPAC line on Israel: “It's all about the Benjamins, baby.”

The reference is to $100 bills, on which Ben Franklin's face appears. The line is a rap lyric from a 1997 song by Puff Daddy.

Omar was saying Congress has been bought.

The House Democratic leadership demanded and got an apology from Omar for her use of an “anti-Semitic trope.”

But Omar now his company in the House. Palestinian-American Rep. Rashida Tlaib, also a Muslim, shares and airs her views on Israel.

The problem for Democrats?

These provocateurs are magnets for media. They speak for a rising minority in the party that regards Israel as an apartheid state that oppresses Palestinians. And they find an echo among millennials on the party's socialist left.

As Thursday's Washington Post headlined, this Omar flap “could forecast a Democratic divide on Israel.”

Indeed, it may have already done so.

When Senate Republicans proposed legislation to allow states to refuse to hire individuals or contractors who support the BDS movement to boycott Israel, Senators Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders all voted no.

The four say they are supporting freedom of speech to condemn Israeli policy. But to others it looks like a progressive Democratic blessing for those urging that Israel be treated the same way Ian Smith's Rhodesia and apartheid South Africa were treated.

Within the Democratic coalition, Asian-Americans are now in conflict with blacks and Hispanics over admission policies at elite schools and universities.

Asian-Americans are “overrepresented” where students are admitted based on test scores or entrance exams. Black and Hispanic leaders are demanding that student bodies, regardless of test scores, look like the community. And if this requires affirmative action based upon race and ethnicity, so be it.

The LBGTQ community is now in court demanding all the rights and protections of the civil rights laws of the '60s. This will bring gay groups into constant collisions with religious communities that adhere to traditional moral views on homosexuality.

The minorities of color in the Democratic coalition are growing, as the base of the GOP is aging and shrinking. But these minorities are also becoming more rivalrous, competitive and demanding. And the further they move left, they more they move outside the American mainstream.

The pledge of allegiance this writer recited every day of school, reads: “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

Today, the antifa left desecrates the flag, as liberals praise NFL players who “take a knee” during the national anthem. Militant migrants march under Mexican flags to protest border security policies. The “republic” has been replaced by “our democracy.”

We are no longer “one nation … indivisible” We have almost ceased talking to one another. As for “under God,” added in 1954, Democrats at their Charlotte Convention sought to have God excised from the party platform.

“Liberty” has been supplanted by diversity, “justice” by equality.

But as Revolutionary France, Stalin's USSR, Mao's China, Castro's Cuba and Hugo Chavez's Venezuela proved, regimes that promise utopian and egalitarian societies inevitably reveal themselves to be undertakers of freedom, America's cause.

    1. Excellent article Mr. Buchanan. Diversity has NEVER been a strength. It’s simply raising ALL our differences to the forefront and subjugating our commonalities. By no means do away with great-great grandma’s delicious recipe from the old country (wherever the old country sits on the globe). Save it, cherish it along with family stories for generations to come. Buy there is OR WAS a uniquely American culture. Feed IT, as well. Allow IT to grow, not just to be split into 200 subcultures. The politicians, news media, and all the other elites have long recognized their mutual benefits in keeping us divided. At this point, it would appear they’ve won—but hold on–not quite yet. President Trump’s election is just the very first step in reconciling our national differences. We can’t think the battle is over–heck, it’s just begun and the “Blame America First” crowd let’s us know DAILY that the battle is on for the heart and soul of our nation, conceived in liberty. We must be in it for the long haul or hand over our children’s future to the Politburos, gulags, and decrees of Supreme Ministress of the Peoples’ Party, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez!

    2. Any and everything should be done to hasten the liberal/socialist//democrat’s demise. Their diversity is not a strength in my opinion.

    3. A republic requires balanced views and compromise on both sides of the isle. This nation became so divided after eight years of not holding anyone accountable that lawlessness and intolerance has became the norm. Laws that are not enforced and politicians who ignore them are never addressed nor held responsible. Diversity is just another feel good effort to sell division when you don’t like opposing views. Term limits are the only solution to rid this country of disodents who blatantly ignore our Constitution and prevent this blight from continuing their strong hold. But because these politicians are so entrenched , there is seems no mechanism to remove these treasonous people from office except their own mortality or an overwhelming scandal.

    4. The Demo-Communist party has become such a mish-mash of hate spewing groups who hate everyone outside their very own parochial tribe that it is going to devour itself. Fire up the corn popper, get plenty of beer and let the fratricide begin.

    5. What the muzzies, AOC and the likes of Bernie are doing to this country and its laws is the worse display of communism we never thought was possible from an elected idiot.They are destroying this country from within and pitting one group against another and another. I never thought we would ever see this country this close to destruction because of its pure strength. We have been brought to the brink. It is time to control their nasty mouths either by expelling them or by law suits. Idiots just don’t know better and were never taught better.

    6. I was taught that racism is the manifestation of an obsession with race. Seems to me, diversity is pretty much the same thing, only institutionalized.

    7. That picture: “Diversity,” Democratic Party-style, will be the death of THOSE Democrats in the picture by their oh-so-enthusiastic and youthful companions…who despise them.

    8. One can only hope and pray that Americans wake up and “smell the coffee”. The collapse of the democrat party would be great for America and if the Globalists go down with them too, we will be better off.

    9. Diversity DOES NOT work and is a false narrative. Our country had a great immigration policy up until 1965 when Ted Kennedy fuked up the USA forever with the Immigration & Nationality Act of 1965! Our country was great when it’s main purpose with immigrants was to assimilate them into our language & culture & morals. And we took in immigrants at a pace that we needed them for our economy. And, they had to benefit our country, not the other way around. No one should be allowed into our country except under the ” public charge ” rules and anyone who came here illegally should be removed and banned for life from entering again. The United States ” does not ” need 1.1 million new immigrants every-year and it should not take an act of congress to deport someone!!!

    10. I love it. Just like when the independant party came into play, it split the rep. party and the dems won. This new dem party with its many splinters might do the same thing to them. When the DNC shot down Sanders it was only so the dems would have one person to vote for increasing thier odds of a win, plus Hitlarys ego couldnt handle the competetion. The best we can hope for is to have PRES. TRUMP for us and a dem, socialst, greenparty candidates for them. If that happens, we will win, again and then we will get to watch them cry, whine, piss, moan and throw tantrums. If were really lucky, we will get to watch side by side results of that for comoarison. I’m normally not that way but with all this democrap neeaner neeaner we won the 2018 and when Obummer won, Trump caved on the wall, we won and thier childish attitude, I have taken on this persona. SAD!!!!

    11. Does’nt matter !
      As soon as everyone Like AOC. ,
      is done with their party it’ll be trashed
      anyway . AOC will Kill diversity in her wake !
      Along with her 3 amigos .
