Greenwald Exposes the Democrat Party’s Identity Politics Scam

RUSH: Glenn Greenwald. He’s a good buddy Edward Snowden. He’s a big leftist. The guy lives in Rio. He’s American, but he lives in Rio, I think, because he’s such a target for people because of his relationship with Snowden and for other things. So he comes out of wherever he lives down there, apparently, and sometimes, you know, appears on CNN or other places. But as far as I know, he’s the guy that coined the term “deep state,” although it may be somebody else. He is just the first person that I had seen using it in print on his website, which called The Intercept.

He’s got a piece that was posted yesterday: “The Democrat Party’s 2008 View of Identity Politics Is Confusing and Thus Appears Cynical and Opportunistic.” What this piece is essentially about is that the Democrat Party’s apparent concern with diversity and equality and equity and fairness is a bogus premise that they do not actually follow because, when you get right down to it, the Democrat Party is really nothing more than a party of deep insider good old boys who are usually white and heterosexual.

They say they are for minorities and they say they’re for women and they say they’re feminist and they glom onto things like the #MeToo movement. But when push comes to shove, they endorse the white guy. And if it’s between a black guy and a woman, they will endorse the guy, as in Obama over Hillary. “[D]espite the inconsistencies, one of the dominant themes that emerged in Democratic Party discourse from the 2016 election is that it is critically important to support female candidates and candidates of color, and that a failure or refusal to support such candidates when they present a credible campaign is suggestive evidence of underlying bigotry.”

You know, this is… The reason I’m highlighting this to you is because it’s a rare honest introspection of the Democrat Party, and I believe the Democrat Party exists on top of a bunch of myths. For example, one myth is that the Democrat Party — by extension, the left — cares about people. That they’re focused and oriented around the principle of looking out for the little guy, looking out for the disadvantaged, the un-advantaged, the lesser advantaged, the downtrodden, the homeless, the hungry, the thirsty.

But they don’t really do anything to help those people. They don’t do anything to change the circumstances these people are in. The Democrat Party exists to keep those people in your circumstance. “You’re homeless? Here, we’re gonna show you how to stay homeless and vote for us.” “Are you poor? We’re gonna show you how to stay poor and vote for us.” And they do this by telling all of these groups how rotten and mean the Republicans are, how rotten and mean the conservatives are.
