I’m angry, but not surprised that Doug Jones won the Alabama Senate race:
“BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Doug Jones, a Democratic former prosecutor who mounted a seemingly quixotic Senate campaign in the face of Republican dominance here, defeated his scandal-scarred opponent, Roy S. Moore, after a brutal campaign marked by accusations of sexual abuse and child molestation against the Republican, according to The Associated Press. …
Propelled by a backlash against Mr. Moore, an intensely polarizing former judge who was accused of sexually assaulting young girls, Mr. Jones overcame the state’s daunting demographics and deep cultural conservatism. His campaign targeted African-American voters with a sprawling, muscular turnout operation, and appealed to educated whites to turn their backs on the Republican Party.
Those pleas paid off on Tuesday, as precincts in Birmingham and its suburbs handed Mr. Jones overwhelming margins while he also won convincingly in Huntsville and other urban centers. The abandonment of Mr. Moore by affluent white voters along with strong support from black voters proved decisive, allowing Mr. Jones to transcend Alabama’s rigid racial polarization and assemble a winning coalition. And solidifying Mr. Jones’s victory were the Republican-leaning Alabamians who chose to write in the name of a third candidate rather than back one of the two major party nominees. Over 20,000 voters here cast write-in ballots.”
It is crystal clear what happened here:
1.) Roy Moore defeated Luther Strange in the Republican primary.
2.) The Strange voters refused to support Roy Moore for class reasons in the general election. They either voted for Doug Jones or sat out the election in protest.
3.) The Republican establishment (this includes the entire Senate) and all the organs of Conservatism, Inc. spent the whole month of November virtue signaling and campaigning against Roy Moore with the mainstream media in order to discourage the college educated, suburban voters from voting for him. This is the same ploy we saw with Donald Trump last October in the 2016 election. We’ve seen them do it before with Tea Party candidates like Todd Akin and Chris McDaniel.
Here’s what we learned tonight:
1.) There is no such thing as a “populist-conservative” coalition. When a populist candidate wins a primary, conservative voters will stay at home in the general election to elect a Democrat. Even though Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election, this happened across the country in suburban areas, which is why he narrowly won states like Georgia, Arizona and Texas.
2.) Conservatives DO NOT believe in the social issues. For generations, we have been told that we have to vote for Republicans because of abortion, gay marriage, immigration or some other polarizing cultural issue, but these issues are just bait to attract White working class voters. When those voters elect a champion who truly believes in those issues, the cucks will balk at voting for him.
3.) The suburban, college educated, White upper middle class voters who elected Doug Jones tonight to the US Senate DO NOT believe in party unity. It is a one way street for them. If they lose the primary, they are willing to be swing voters and openly campaign against the nominee. When their candidate wins though, they will come back with arguments like we have to “unite the party” in order to elect conservative judges who as we have seen tonight they really don’t care about.
There is a massive class divide in the Republican Party.
It is a party with a White working class populist base, but with a suburban upper middle class conservative management agenda. This is how we have mysteriously gone from “Build the Wall” to passing a massive corporate tax cut for wealthy donors. It is why the Republican Party is now turning its attention to entitlement reform after working to defeat Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race. These three things are connected and illustrate who was really empowered by the 2016 presidential election.
The 2018 midterms are coming up and will pose some big questions for White working class voters. Is it even possible to reform the Republican Party? Do we want more of the Paul Ryan agenda? Why should we vote for cucks in the name of party loyalty who refuse to support populist candidates? If the Republican Party doesn’t support a working class agenda, why bother to vote them? Surely, two can play this game of sitting out a general election in order to throw a race to the Democrats.
Note: As you have probably noticed from our coverage of the issues, I made up my mind about this a while ago. I’m sitting out the 2018 midterm elections. I’m also going to do everything in my power on this platform to discourage our people from voting for more conservatives.
