DNC wrap-up

Katy Perry:

I love her!


Not a great speaker. She looked very uncomfortable, lacking in force.


Way too much grrlpower stuff, gloating in her sex’s victory over men. Lots of rambling about stuff that has nothing to do with anything important. Lots of talk about leftwing causes like global warming, gun control, minorities, LGBT, “immigration reform” (euphemism for amnesty and open borders). I don’t see how she gets any benefit from this speech.

As I predicted, a huge departure from Bill Clinton’s 1992 speech focusing on the economy and jobs, with lots of patriotism and Republican-sounding themes to appeal to middle-class white America.

  1. Aside from a phrase or two about entrepreneurs and small business owners, the speech was boilerplate far leftist orthodoxy. Every SJW cause was checked off. There wasn’t even a pretense of moving toward the political center. Hillary and the DNC are banking everything on a re-run of the Obama 2012 re-election campaign…stoke racial resentment and gin up a massive turnout by the Democratic base. Little or no attempt will be made to court undecided voters.

    • Every journalist and celebrity in the world will be throwing everything they have at Trump for the next three months, at the same time telling us Rodham-Clinton was the best mother, wife, lawyer, senator and Secretary of State in human history. We’ll see if Trump can take it while we hope for a deus ex machina from Julian Assange.

    • The thing is, part of Obama’s success has been disguising his SJW agenda. I’m not really sure why the Dems are being so blatant about it now.

      • This is a really good point. I doubt most people who read blogs like this were fooled back 2008 but Obama was largely able to sell himself as the post-racial black guy who acts like a white guy. Except it turns out the “post-racial” part was 180 degrees from the truth.

        And Obama could run on optimism in 2008. Clinton is making the same optimism pitch in circumstances of catastrophic failure.

  2. They are banking on Barack Obama’s ability to turn out the black vote. The entirety of October he plans to campaign for her (actually for himself and his legacy) and it’s the one thing he does well and likes–campaigning. I hope by October she’ll be such a sinking ship he’ll make up an excuse to re-engage as a POTUS and NOT campaign.

  3. Trump basically cribbed Bill Clinton’s acceptance speech, but you don’t see complaints about plagiarism there.

    Trump in a landslide, Libertarian party will do better than ever, Dems will move to center.

  4. Didn’t katy fairy admit to praying for large breasts? I’m not kidding, she actually did. I wish I could play God and have given them to her, and then given her breast cancer of course. Yes, I have that kind of sense of humor… Be careful praying to me…

      • She didn’t pray for large breasts, she paid for large breasts.

  5. Give Chelsea a bucket of oats and send her to the glue factory already…

    • Poor Chelsea. Yeah, I know. She’s rich, lives in a penthouse in Manhattan, never had to worry about money or getting hired, etc… But the girl has been plagued for 24 yeas with comments about her looks. I even saw on Free Republic a picture of (cartoon) donkey next to a picture of her where she sort of looked “donkeyish.” But, for God’s sake, it isn’t her fault that she’s unattractive. She certainly looks better now than she did when she was younger. The saddest thing, really, is that the resemblance between Chelsea and her Mom’s former law partner, Webster Hubbel is so obvious that I’m sure Chelsea herself has seen it – and understands her true paternity.

  6. Dude, Katy Perry sucks. She’s one of the most manufactured, producer-driven pop stars in history.


    July 29, 2016 at 9:20 am

    • What’s wrong with being manufactured? There is this idea that authenticity is awesome and to be striven for at all costs. Dude, no. The real, authentic self…kinda sucks, TBH.

      All that matters is that she’s good at what she does. And she is.

  7. Shorter DNC: America is the greatest and HIllary will make it better.

    Shorter RNC: Donald Trump is the greatest and only he can make the shit hole of America great again.

    • Fake versus real. Democrats: everything is great, don’t pay any attention to the man behind the curtain as we do whatever benefits the globalist corporate megabillionaires and make your life shittier.

      Trump: kinda showy but with a sincerity at the same time.

      It’s kinda like how people say New Yorkers are rude, when really they’re just more direct, and kinda cool if you get to know them and understand their vibe. Whereas Pacific Northwest people (the epitome of SWPL progressive liberals) act like they’re all cool and polite but when you get to know them for 2 seconds you realize they are all cold inhuman passive aggressive faggots.

      • It is true that both Democrats and Republicans have generally supported free trade deals. The loss in jobs in the auto and steel industries started long before the current free trade deals. They are fundamentally the result of reduced cost of global transportation and global re-industrialization. In the 1950s Europe, Japan and China had their industrial base destroyed in WW II. The USA could manufacture and sell to the world without competition. Since the 1960s the US has been losing manufacturing jobs to those re-industrialized countries and to some newly industrialized like South Korea.

        Most experts claim that these trade deals create more jobs than are lost and they help keep prices of goods lower. The problem is that the people who lose their jobs because of the trade deals are not in the right place or have the right skills to get the newly created jobs, so many of them become long term unemployed or end up in much lower paying jobs.

        Putting up trade barriers will protect some peoples jobs, but other people will lose their jobs at companies that rely on export sales when other countries retaliate by putting up their own trade barriers. Many imported goods will be more expensive, since in the end it is the consumer that pays trade tariffs.

        in the 19-20th centuries the percentage of people work in agriculture declined to a tiny faction of what it had been. That labor pool was absorbed into manufacturing. Manufacturing is now becoming highly automated. In 10-30 years only a tiny fraction of people will be needed in the manufacturing sector.

        I don’t see either party actually addressing that question. Trump pretends if he shakes his fist at the Chinese, that manufacturing jobs will come flowing back into the USA. That is a fairy tail. Trump knows it and most Trump supporters know too.

        I’m not sure what Trump supporters really expect Trump will do. I expect he will not impose any tariffs and will push through more trade deals like TPP, only he will claim to have made them “great for the USA” by negotiating some meaningless changes. In other words, Trump will do nothing.

      • mikeca,

        This is all revisionist history. Japan and Germany were rebuilt industrially under the Marshall Plan and their industrial output was given access to US markets. Without both, it would’ve taken far longer for their economies to recover.

        No, goods are not going to be more expensive because profit has already been maximized. You can’t raise prices without reducing demand. Furthermore, trade surpluses are a direct result of the US government allowing trade deficits to begin with.

        Basically, the reindustrialization of the rest of the world and throwing open US markets to that competition was a political decision: it’s purpose was to extend the US economy globally and increase the power of the US government. Being a major exporter does not do that.

  8. Yes, mostly boilerplate. I didn’t expect her to do as much feminist gloating as she did though. Really great appeal to prole white men.

    The only thing that really enraged me was her explicit promise to politicize the Supreme Court. I don’t know why the Left gets the vapors over Citizens United–an issue that’s not even on the radar screen for the vast bulk of Americans.


    July 29, 2016 at 4:17 pm

    • Because they think that the reason America hasn’t gone farther left economically and instituted socialized medicine, free college, universal preschool, mandated generous maternity leave, whatever, is that the 1% are buying elections and politicians (partially with ads and such) and preventing them from instituting left-wing programs. They think that if we prevented the rich from spending money on campaign ads, that would go a long way toward getting politicians to enact those programs.


      July 29, 2016 at 8:45 pm

    • I think the Citizens United thing is mostly about the guilt liberals feel about being the real power structure of today. Harping on and on about Citizens United lets the politically minded liberals of today see themselves, for a moment, as the counter-culture heroes they would love to be, and which they know they are not, not from their own point of view, and certainly not from the point of view of the powerless people whom they like to boss around.
