For the last several years I’ve been aware that, since I’m a Trump supporter, the coastal elites, the media and the Democrat Party consider me a “deplorable”. But over the last few weeks I guess I have, despite being married to a Latina, morphed into a new species — a white Nationalist. Since I know a lot of fellow deplorables, but not any white Nationalists, I’ve given a lot of thought as to how and why the media, desperate to oust Trump and defeat Republicans by “any means necessary” is so enamored of the term.

Elections are in a sense like football games. The big bucks, the glory and the trophies go to the quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers, but the old adage is that games are won “in the trenches”, that is, by the offensive and defensive linemen toiling in relative obscurity. So it is with elections. The way forward in the political process falls into two broad categories.

Front and center are the ideological arguments and policies — taxes, the economy, foreign affairs, medical care, as well as the social issues of abortion, guns, religion and the like. Yet elections too are won “in the trenches”, with the foot soldiers of the two political parties.

The latter is the ground game, and while you need to stand for policies, not having the ground game can cost you the election.

For many years the Democrat Party has essentially had the labor unions to act as their de facto army. But with the rise of technology and the withering away of private sector union members (now less than 8% of the workforce) this has been something of an advantage for Republicans.

These foot soldiers (Precinct Committeemen) are the folks who raise money, make telephone calls, knock on doors and do all of the things to turn out their voters come Election Day.

It is this turning out your voters that wins elections. As we know, certain demographics tend to vote certain ways, ergo, turning out those demographics makes all the difference in elections.

Let’s be frank, we have an extremely polarized electorate (which bodes poorly for the future of the country, but that’s a story for a future time).

For instance, the Democrat base consists largely of African-Americans (93-97% Democrat), Hispanics (60%), Jews (85%) and single mothers with incomes below $30,000. Married women, white men and increasingly blue collar workers vote largely Republican (hey, did I miss a demographic?).

In 2008, blacks voted 97% for Barack Obama, in 2012, they voted for him 95% of the time. In 2016, Donald Trump received approximately 10% of the African-American vote. He also got roughly 20% of the Jewish vote, which, though small, is quite influential in several key states that are contested, primarily Florida. In the United States, the black percentage of the population is 12-13%, roughly one in eight. However, in the Democrat primary in 2016, 37% of the vote is African-American, roughly one in three.

What this comes down to is that, to be blunt, without a huge black turnout and 90+ percentage, on a national level a Democrat simply can’t get elected.

Without the Jewish vote in Florida, despite the migration of Puerto Ricans and the allowing of felons (another Democrat constituency) to vote, likewise the state cannot be flipped. The media won’t tell you this, but the reality is that African-American unemployment is at all-time lows in the administration of Donald Trump, and Trump has engaged the black community more than any other President in recent memory.

The U.S. embassy has been moved to Jerusalem, and the Democrat Party, aside from becoming avowedly socialist — I would say Communist totalitarian, but again, I’m a deplorable! — is flagrantly anti-Semitic.

Ergo, the Democrats and their sycophants in the media desperately feel the need to reverse this trend. Thus, the demonizing of the multitude of minorities in the Trump administration and those working their way up the ladder of the Republican Party as “oreos” and “Uncle Toms” and the labeling of the opposition as neo-Nazis and white nationalists.

Will they succeed? Have you seen CNN’s ratings recently?

Laurence Schiff is president of the Conservative Republican Club of Kingman and a past chairman of the Mohave County Republican Party.

I was a registered republican voter, I am now registered as an independent. It wasn't the democrats that showed me the far right, white supremacist growth in the republican party, it was the party backing Trump and losing their conservative spine that convinced me. I do now comprehend how Hitler was able to come to power in Germany, something I could never really understand until now. I'm not calling Trump Hitler, but...


deaton

HG, you never got back to me about “White Privilege” what exactly is it and where can I get some? Just curious? [thumbup][beam] DOT Commander


HwyRovr

Commander DOT, pardon my interruption, but you never got back to me with proof that you gave anything to our food bank. You claim you have and asserted that I have not, as I pointed out I have proof, so where is yours? Still waiting.

deaton

Keep waiting Rovr, it will give you something thing to do during your sleep deprivation! You can interrupt anytime Rovr! Since HG doesn’t seem to know what “White Privilege” is, perhaps you can enlighten me on “White Privilege” and where I can get some? Who knows, it might be something useful? Have a great day & night Rovr! [thumbup][beam] DOT Commander

VA172

You said you have proof. Show it.

Can Of Corn

Let's see your proof. Wait a minute while I slip on this "Fredo" T-Shirt real quick.


HavasuGuy

You never answer my questions, why would I waste my time answering yours? Use your google...

HwyRovr

Commander DOT. Don't be so darned touchy and why are you so obsessed with my sleep patterns? I will however continue to ask you to prove - because you said you could - that you have ever donated to our food bank. Just 'fess up - you never have! Outside of being one of the silly hat brigade you have absolutely nothing to offer.

HwyRovr

You're right, Republicans have done an excellent job of proving themselves to be racists all by themselves.


deaton

First it was “Russian Collusion” which didn’t work so you DIM’s have moved on to “Racist”! I guess from what HG posted it will “HITLER”[scared] next! AHH! It’s great to be an American, living in America! [thumbup][beam] DOT Commander


HavasuGuy

It is GREAT to be an American living in America!

Can Of Corn

FYI Deaton - HavasuGuy is actually Dawn King.


VA172

Just look at all the Democratic candidates. Not a one of them will beat a Republican. Now those 20 somethings are a true bunch nit-wits.

HwyRovr

Yeah, you weak-minded fools said the same thing in 2018.

deaton

And what were you saying in 2016? Go to “YouTube” and search “2016 election meltdown” it’s absolutely hilarious! Look for the one video with the MSNBC hosts! You’all enjoy it Rovr [thumbup][beam] DOT Commander


VA172

And you said there was no way Hillary would lose.

VA172

deaton. I have watched the poor fools on YouTube the night of the 2016 election. Funniest clips I've ever seen. Rovr was probably in tears that night.


deaton

In regard to the 3:30 pm post. Do you have your question in your copy & paste list? I think you’re going to need it. However, you can put on your detective cap on and prove I haven’t given! ‘Cause my reply will be “Keep Waiting” As for your “sleep disorder” have you tried a “CPAP” a treatment for sleep apnea? Talk to your Dr.,, he/she may be able to help you! Maybe just maybe you won’t be so grouchy all the time. Just saying [thumbup][beam] DOT Commander


HwyRovr

Commander DOT, yep, the question will continue to be asked because you seem to have been so full of yourself when you made the claim that I have never donated to the food bank and you have - which, as it turns out is a lie. "Keep waiting" doesn't bother me because it demonstrates that you a blowhard. And I hate to disappoint you I do not have sleep apnea - once again posting pure garbage based on...yeah, nothing as usual. So bluster on, but rest assured I will make certain that everyone knows you play fast and loose with the truth.

deaton

Rovr, my friend, I was just trying to show concern for a fellow vet who served in the NAM, who clearly has anger issues which could be a symptom of mental illness! Why all the hate?? I pray for your full recovery! In answer to your next question “KEEP WAITING” As for me, I’ll be here “playing fast and loose with truth” Heck, it might be fun! [thumbup][beam] Commander DOT!


deaton

Should be “you’re a blowhard” see I can do it too. However, I wish Dawn King were around! She is a much better “grammar” Cop. Commander DOT [thumbup][beam]


JVW

rovR Living up to your Curmudgeon reputation. So strange how lefty's name call people exactly their own persona. We all know you gave a can of corn God bless you Lil Buddy.



We all Know you are Bothered.


Can Of Corn

Well you haven't donated....soooooo STFU!


VA172

I agree deaton, being concerned for Hwy's health. He's getting close to 80 and probably his exercise is typing with his 2 index fingers on his laptop.







As for his not being able to prove his donating to the food shelf, I would say that is also a lie also. Are we all suppose to take his word for it?


VA172

Is that last sentence of yours a threat?
