The Left’s ‘Rock Stars’ Blew It

I thought it would be an article about how aging Paul Simon sung off key, but actually it’s from a conservative media critical of the Democrats’ politician speakers.

  1. Is Hil going to get a bounce from this convention?

    The Dems are still convinced they are going to win in a blow out, but they are definitely shaken by Trump getting a bounce. Trump getting a bounce as the result of an anti immigrant hate fest is very traumatizing to them.

    How will the American people react to 4 days of open borders and Black Lives Matter? Also every time Hillary speaks her numbers go down.

    I don’t doubt that the Democratic convention will charge up their base, they are loving what they are seeing, but will it bring Hillary any new voters? I really just don’t know.

    • Is Hil going to get a bounce from this convention?

      If anyone can fail to get one it’s her.

    • Is there polling data suggesting how sympathetic undecided voters and the coveted “Reagan Democrats” find Trayvon Martin, Freddy Gray and the rest and their families?

  2. It’s quite bizarre the way the political situation in Britain and America are mirroring each other. In Britain you had the leftist outsider elected as the Labour leader through the energetic campaign of a group of SJW type leftists called ‘Momentum.’ Now the Parliamentary Labour Party is in revolt, has called another leadership election and is talking about splitting the party if they lose (which they will, so the Labour Party is almost certainly gone). This split will kill their chances of election. In America the Bernie Sanders movement is threatening to ruin Hillary’s chance of election.

    On the Right side of the equation you have the analogy between the Brexit and Trump phenomena. Both are white working and lower middle class revolts against immigration and globalisation, neither can be called ‘conservative’ in the old-fashioned sense, both include older people who would once have considered themselves on the left when being on the left meant something rather different. Both are rejections of NAFTA, the EU and other supranational bodies and are essentially Nationalistic.

    • Yes, it is interesting. There’s also the issue of the hard core left-wing anti-Semitism in the Labour Party, which Corbyn is trying to root out, but he can’t, because it has deep roots in the Muslim population which is now part of the Labour base. He’s also hard core pro-Pal.

      Whatever happens in this election, Hillary will be gone in four years. She’s too old. And when the Bernie wing/SJWs/BLMs inherit the ashes, how will they contain their anti-Semitic tendencies?

  3. If we’re talking about good articles by anti-Trump Jews, check out this one by Peter Beinart:

  4. Paul Simon looked out of it, and he shouldn’t try and do Simon and Garfunkel without Garfunkel. I don’t care if Simon wrote the song, the appeal of the song is Garfunkel’s singing.

    • It was a weird choice. He has a lot of songs that he sings well why did (or they) pick a song he can’t sing well.
