Conservatives had better watch out – the opposition just honed in on one strategy they needed to overcome Sleepy Joe’s handicap.
Now an influential Democrat is shifting the focus for his party.
And, with a nod to Donald Trump, it’s “game on” for 2024.
In an op-ed that dredged up almost every nasty thing he could say about Donald Trump within his allotted column space, David Brock did his best to stir up readers of The New York Times this week.
If you’re not familiar with who Brock is, let’s look at the brief bio included at the top of his “guest essay”:
“Mr. Brock led one of the largest Democratic super PACs dedicated to defeating Donald Trump in the 2020 election. Before he became a Democrat, he worked for The Washington Times and the Heritage Foundation.”
Did you notice something missing above? The name “Biden” is nowhere to be found. Nor is the current President mentioned again anywhere else in the nearly 1,000-word op-ed.
As someone who spent plenty of time in conservative circles before switching sides he knows that conservatives are beyond furious and ready to come out to the polls in droves for the next election.
On the other hand, there’s very little offered by the current administration to inspire Democrats – and plenty for them to cringe in embarrassment over.
The only way Democrats will be able to stay in power is to mobilize their base to keep Trump – and other like-minded conservatives – out of power.
In his article, Brock paints Trump as a serious threat not only to take back the Presidency in 2024, but also to mobilize Republicans to take back the House and Senate in 2022.
He even goes as far as accusing Republicans of preparing to steal the next election.
With that build up, Brock calls on leftists to infiltrate the Republican Party itself:
“Where possible, Democrats should sponsor plebiscites to overturn anti-democratic laws passed by Republicans in states. They should underwrite super PACs to protect incumbent election officials being challenged by Trump loyalists, even if it means supporting reasonable Republicans. Donations should flow into key governor and secretary of state races, positions critical to election certification.”
Brock’s op-ed is already making the rounds in left-wing circles with American Bridge PAC highlighting it on their site.
No doubt, numerous leftist organizations will use it to reinvigorate fundraising efforts.
And while David Brock has finally admitted he underestimated Donald Trump, conservatives would do well to make sure they don’t underestimate political operatives like David Brock.
