For most people, images of the Ku Klux Klan evoke feeling of disgust.  These radical, hateful idiots are just a fringe society, a despicable minority that’s so small and irrelevant they don’t even deserve a mention.  In fact, check out the photo of the goofs above.  You can tell by the obvious creases in their flag and robes they just ordered them from Racists-R-Us, and didn’t even bother to use an iron to camouflage the fact that they’re just doing this for the publicity Democrats seem perfectly willing to give them.  (Hey, don’t judge them. “Adulting” is hard! Even though they probably still live in their parents’ basements, their mommas might’ve been too busy lamenting what they did wrong to come down and iron out the wrinkles.)

What a bunch of morons.

Yet, liberals just hate us so much they believe all conservatives are just like the guys above.  And it’s become increasingly hard for them to suppress the now inherent urge to call us  white supremacists, racists, and Nazis.  Especially if you happen to live in what they call “fly-over country” — or, worse, from the dreaded South.  

They got away with it for so long — remember when the phrase “tar baby” dominated the news cycle because Mitt Romney used it to describe Boston’s big dig? Then, when the Tea Party rose to prominence, the Dems said this was due to racism… even though we captured Senate seats in districts that had voted for President Barack Obama.  But that was just the beginning. When Hillary Clinton described 30 million Americans  as a “basket of deplorables,” she flat out accused us of being beyond-help racists.

What gives? There must be some way to explain it, since it’s certainly proven to be a poor electoral strategy.

I think it just makes them feel so virtuous when they do it.  I’m sure as they say it they feel the dopamine flood their nervous systems, and they get flush with joy.  On Sunday, they did it again.  This time, in New Hampshire when the state’s Democratic Party chair called rural voters “white supremacists” and “extremists.” The Daily Caller reported that Ray Buckley said he didn’t believe that Democrats should reach out to these voters. “The organizing and activating of these extremists, these white supremacists, really could have a detrimental effect on the entire culture of New Hampshire,” he said.

Way to alienate potential voters, there Buckley.  I, for one, don’t mind all the name calling that Democrats tend to do in order to deflect from their own obvious political shortcomings.  But it sure is sobering to see the party becoming unhinged like this.

As Brett J. Talley once observed, “Democrats have seldom faced a defeat they couldn’t attribute to the personal failings of the voters.”  That’s exactly right.  It’s so much easier for them to point the finger at us and scream “racist” than it is to really look in the mirror and see what they’ve done wrong.

But with every insult and every slur, Americans in fly-over country are digging in their heels. Don’t expect us ever to trust Democrats again.
