Are Democrats just ungrateful? All they ever have are complaints; their only mood is negative. A Democrat sees it as an affront to acknowledge that our country has made progress — or that life can be pretty good. They’re so enamored with this mindset that many are now convinced that this country is objectively worse off than it was 30, 50 or 100 years ago.
Considering they said the exact opposite when things actually were objectively worse under Obama, this mindset really tells you everything you need to know about the Democratic Party in 2019.
Conversely, the Republicans don’t whine about how horrible things were in the 90s. Sure, we criticize plenty of policy points under Clinton, but we don’t have to lie and say the whole country suffered just because he was a bad president.
Ilhan Omar’s Happy 4th
This brings us to Ilhan Omar. As a serving Representative in the nation’s capital, it’s no surprise that she sent a 4th of July tweet. Being a Democrat, it’s no surprise that she had nothing good to say.
“Today gives us all a chance to reflect on how far we have come as a country and how much further we have to go to achieve full equality for all people.”
At first glance, it might look like she’s actually appreciating living in the land of the free. After all, this is on a very short list of countries where a Muslim refugee woman can serve in the highest level of government.
The same isn’t true in any majority Muslim country on the planet. In reality, Omar is whining. We don’t live up to her idea of equality. We aren’t socialist enough to fit her agenda.
Only a modern Democrat could look at the most successful nation and culture in the history of the planet and think we need to be more like Stalin or Mao.
This might look like nitpicking, but the context becomes clear when you contrast her other recent tweet celebrating independence. Just 3 days prior, on July 1st, she sent a tweet celebrating Somalia’s independence. That tweet said nothing about how far the Somali people have to go. It just said, “Long live Somalia!”
That’s a pure celebration, and it’s celebrating an independence that has not benefited the Somali people at all. In 1960, Somalia was officially formed by unifying the former colonies that were controlled by Italy and Great Britain.
Since then, Somalia has been completely independent — to be ruled by a series of brutal warlords. Somalia is not a land of freedom. It is not a land of hope or opportunity.
If you want proof, Rep. Ilhan Omar herself had to flee the country in order to not be murdered. She came to America as a refugee. That is a country she can celebrate without caveat, but the land that took her in, educated her and gave her a job in Congress as a complete equal is the land that needs to improve.
Is her disdain for America clear yet?
It’s All a Stupid Game
Here’s the thing. Omar’s indefensible position that Somalia is worthy of greater celebration than the United States isn’t unique to her. For all of her anti-Semitism and overt stupidity, her behavior is pretty average on this one. The Democrats as a party don’t want to celebrate our country. They deal in divisiveness and contention.
Any admission that anything is good in our country is dangerous for them because it could lead to admitting that President Trump isn’t the unforgivable, evil dictator they accuse him of being. If they acknowledge even one good thing, it means they might have to depart from radicalism and return to rational compromise. That road will never lead to the socialist dictatorship they envision for our country.
That’s what this all comes back to. It might feel like a stretch to equate an annoying 4th of July tweet to the Democratic plan for conquest, but all of these things really do tie together.
The left wants control over everything. They make that clear on every issue. They hate freedom. They loathe the idea that you could run your life better than they can. So, they invest every effort, every conversation and every tweet into convincing you that this country is beyond salvaging.
If you buy into their pessimism enough, you just might give up and let them assume power. It’s what they’ve been trying to do all along.
