Democrats are frantically searching for a winning message going into election season.
So far, they’ve settled on fear-mongering about the Right.
But Barack Obama just made one confession about the Midterms that will leave your jaw on the floor.
Barack Obama took the Democrat Party in a radical direction.
He littered the administrative state with far-left ideologues, appointed leftist judges who think the Constitution is outdated, and engaged in divisive racist rhetoric.
And now he’s realizing that the “wokeness” he accelerated could come back to bite the Democrats in the 2022 Midterms.
During a conversation on Pod Save America, Obama worried that political correctness and identity politics were hurting the Democrats.
Obama explained that the Democrats’ pitch going into the Midterms should be “not being a buzzkill. And sometimes Democrats are . . . Sometimes people just want to not feel as if they are walking on eggshells, and they want some acknowledgment that life is messy and that all of us, at any given moment, can say things the wrong way, make mistakes.”
This is precisely the cancel culture that leftists have created.
If anyone says anything that is out of line with “woke” dogma, he or she runs the risk of being fired, banned from social media, and even de-banked.
For instance, Chase Bank just booted Kanye West – if the richest black man in America and the President of the United States are not safe, then nobody is.
Obama continued, “I think where we get into trouble sometimes is where we try to suggest that some groups are more – because they historically have been victimized more – that somehow they have a status that’s different than other people and we’re going around scolding folks if they don’t use exactly the right phrase . . . Or that identity politics becomes the principle lens through which we view our various political challenges.”
This is a galling admission coming from Barack Obama considering that is the entire ethos of the modern Left.
Cancel culture, political correctness, and identity politics are what fuel the Left, and the Democrat Party has been dragged along.
One obvious example is that Joe Biden said he would be selecting a black woman to be his running mate.
The Left simultaneously celebrated Ketanji Brown Jackson being the first black woman on the Supreme Court, yet during her confirmation hearing, she could not even define the word “woman.”
The Left have been overtaken by woke nonsense and Obama knows it will be a problem going into the Midterms.
