Who’s to Blame for Black Candidate Losses in the Midterms? Bernie Sanders has the Answer.

Sure thing, Bernie. Sure thing.

With the 2018 November midterms finally behind us, all the major voices in the realm of politics, both in Congress and out of it, are trying to make sense out of the wins and losses, offering their “expert” analysis on the various outcomes. Like why so many black candidates lost their races for example.

Now, as you can probably imagine, the left-wingers have wasted zero time jumping to the usual conclusions of racism as an explanation for this, particularly everyone’s favorite socialist, Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Sanders stated that the reason so many black candidates lost their races was because “white people aren’t comfortable” voting for a person of color.

And yet, he goes on later to say, that a person who doesn’t vote for a candidate based on their race is “not necessarily racist.”

“I think you know there are a lot of white folks out there who are not necessarily racist who felt uncomfortable for the first time in their lives about whether or not they wanted to vote for an African-American,” Sanders said, according to The Daily Beast. “I think next time around, by the way, it will be a lot easier for them to do that.”

Both Gillum and Abrams were targeted by racist robocalls in their states, organized by white supremacist groups.

Sanders’ explanation for the failure of these supposed star politicians explicitly denies the idea that their extremely progressive policies may have dissuaded many voters.

According to CBS News, Ron DeSantis won the white vote 60 percent to 39 percent. Gillum earned 86 percent of the black vote.

Breaking it down by gender, white men voted for DeSantis by a 69 percent to 31 percent margin; Gillum got 47 percent of the white female vote. 91 percent of black men and 82 percent of black women voted for Gillum.

In reality, the most likely reason these folks lost their races is that their policies are far too radically left-wing for the majority of Americans who happen to be centrists. This would also be the case if the conservative individual running for the GOP was extremely hardcore to the right.

People in America seem to crave balance, deeply desiring to see fiscal responsibility measured equally against compassionate care for those who are less fortunate. They want a both/and — which is sometimes impossible — rather than an either/or.

Both parties end up suffering because of their refusal to see this and to acknowledge that most issues facing our country — minus a few black and white ones like abortion — are a complicated shade of gray.

The left in particular has a hard time swallowing that pill. However, until they do, they are going to find themselves out of step with the American people and just shy of obtaining the goals they desire.

Big Court Win Involving Ballot Evidence Could Potentially Swing Nevada to Trump (Details)

YUGE!

The Trump team (and America, in general) scored a big win on Wednesday. Ultimately, Nevada could potentially swing back toward President Trump if all goes according to plan. Now, the lawyers just have to provide the evidence. Here’s the deal, via Washington Examiner: In its first court victory, a Nevada judge has agreed to let the Trump campaign present its evidence that fraud and illegalities plagued the state’s election, enough to reverse Joe Biden’s win and set an example for other state challenges. According to Trump officials, the judge set a Dec. 3 hearing date and is allowing 15 depositions. What’s more, the campaign plans to present its evidence that could result in the rejection of tens of thousands of mail-in ballots in Democratic Clark County where Biden ballots outnumbered Trump ballots by 91,000 in unofficial results.

Pelosi. Newsom. Phil Murphy. All have been caught doing things during the pandemic that they’ve cautioned the public against doing. That would be called hypocrisy – do as I say, not as I do. Now, another far-left radical has been busted in the act. It’s as if these libs think they won’t get caught. From The Daily Wire: Denver Mayor Michael Hancock (D) apologized and asked for the public’s forgiveness on Wednesday evening after it was revealed that he was traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday despite his own Twitter account cautioning against travel “if you can” earlier in the day.
