Traditional (Young) Democrats are Becoming Conservatives

Posted: October 15, 2017 at 6:53 pm   /   by

For years, Left-wing Democrats have been destroying their party through various forms of race, gender, and class warfare. It’s hateful, divisive, depressing, and it’s costing them dearly at the ballot box.

Most ominous is that young voters like Candace Owens are turning away from a Democrat platform that simply recycles anger, resentment, envy, and revenge. The once-strong, once-up-beat party of JFK is collapsing, yet Democrat leaders like Schumer and Pelosi seem powerless to correct the slide. Their Left wing is simply too powerful.

Of course conservatives welcome young, enthusiastic, independent-thinking people like Owens who “get it”. These self-converted conservatives will surely be among the leaders of the future GOP as the current GOP’s aging lifetime legislative elites shuffle off to retirement.

Meanwhile, hapless Democrats are spending their donors’ millions on polls, focus groups, and consultants trying desperately to win elections with their increasingly negative platform. What they should really do is listen carefully to young people like Candace Owens and change course.

But they won’t. They may not even know how anymore, and they sound kind of silly when they try. Remember Schumer’s “better deal” initiative? Have you heard any more about that?

The video attached to this article is a 4-minute excerpt from an 18-minute interview by Ginni Thomas of video blogger Candace Owens. The full story and interview is at Daily Caller. It’s worth listening to all of it. Candace has a lot more interesting things to say, including comments on the media, Hollywood, Black Lives Matter, Antifa, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump!

Granted, black Americans disaffected with the Democrat party are not exactly new. For example, see this link. It leads to a May, 2015, article I wrote that got me suspended from Facebook for a full month(!). See also Facebook Groups Black Constitutional Patriots, Conservative Black Republicans of America, and Black Conservative Forum.

As more and more young black Americans like Candace Owens turn conservative, the Democrat Party will either change or simply fade away to a bitter, old rump party. The optimism of the JFK era has been 100% replaced by a tired, old, mean-spirited, socialistic, vote-for-me-and-I’ll-steal-for-you message. And it’s not working. They’re losing.
