McConnell Promises To Be “Grim Reaper” For Progressive Policies

If Kentucky had a populist senator instead of a conservative senator, we could support the good progressive policies while opposing the bad ones:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Monday vowed to be the “Grim Reaper” for progressive policies if Republicans hold on to the Senate in 2020.

“If I’m still the majority leader in the Senate think of me as the Grim Reaper. None of that stuff is going to pass,” McConnell said while speaking to community leaders in Owensboro, Ky.

McConnell noted that if Republicans win back the House or President Trump wins reelection “that takes care of it.” But he pledged that even if Republicans lose the White House, he would use his position as majority leader to block progressive proposals like the Green New Deal.
“I guarantee you that if I’m the last man standing and I’m still the majority leader, it ain’t happening. I can promise you,” McConnell added. …”

As a populist, I support building the border wall and gun rights, but I also support Universal Basic Income and student loan debt forgiveness. There are almost certainly more populists than conservatives in a state like Kentucky which is strongly White working class.

  1. What this actually means is that he’ll quash everything his business masters tell him to quash but will let the occasional anti-white legislation through as a compromise to his dear colleagues on the left. This is how the Republican party has operated for the last 60 years.

  2. >”I support…….gun rights”

    That’s not very compatible with your fandom for Yang. Have you actually read the draconian gun policy positions he outlines on his website? Did you catch the tweet were he stated: “I’d start fining gun manufacturers $1 million for each person killed by their weapons”. Nasty stuff.

    And please, don’t repeat that shockingly short-sighted answer you gave me last month when you said “I’ve already got all the guns I want”. That’s kind of like “fuds” who support banning AR-15s because they only own traditional sporting firearms….but worse.

    Truly $1,000 a month it today’s 30 pieces of silver.

    • I’m a populist, not a conservative.

      I believe in social cohesion and economic fairness. In other words, I agree with conservatives on social issues like guns and abortion, but I agree with progressives on economic issues like Universal Basic Income and health care.

      I’m an Independent swing voter in the middle of the electorate. That’s because my politics aren’t really aligned with the GOP or the Democrats. I’m definitively not a single issue partisan Republican voter and never have been in the ten years that I have run this website.

  3. Mitch McConnell is so fucking based. He has a based Asian wife who is submissive and not some liberated whore, he wants to destroy health care for dysgenic white trash who deserve to die, and he supports based right-wing nationalist Jews against Ilhan Omar’s Marxist Muslim Palestinian terrorists to boot. Can you believe how much he triggers the shitlibs?

  4. Alvin Toffler wrote in the Third Wave, and especially in Power Shift, that a great many would oppose and resist the information, communication, automation revolution that he called the Third Wave.

    1. First wave, agriculture.
    2. Second wave, Industrialisation.
    3. Third Wave, IT, Global Telecom, AI/AUT.

    They’re resisting because in the new, 21st Century Civilisation, they’ll become powerless and irrelevant.

    Mitch McConnell is just another example of the old guard, firmly rooted in the last century and fearful of his impending powerlessness and irrelevancy. His talk about fighting Socialism is just old fashioned rhetoric that was heard across the West from 1850 to 1989.

    He and his kind need to go. The Democrats and Republicans need to go. So does Yankeedom.
    The Jews, and the 19th and 20th Centuries, too.

    The oligarchs of Europe, Japan and China are more interested in being rich, than in being overlords. Robots are easier to control and won’t rebel, like people do. They’re more productive, too.
