Whenever we enter an election year, there are several topics and issues that will resurface in the media, in the halls of Congress and on the campaign trail.
What are these issues seem to crop every election cycle like clockwork? Well, Democrats bring up racism, sexism and abortion with frightening frequency. They’ll say how we all reside in a terribly racist a country which was established by a bunch of racists and that the only way to correct those injustices is to obviously vote for the Democrat.
Also, they’ll tell us how sexist of a place the United States is, that women are truly oppressed and that the only way to throw off the shackles and let women leave the kitchen is to vote for the Democrat.
On the other side of the aisle, Republicans will bring up the Second Amendment, free speech and abortion pretty regularly.
Both sides play and scare people or as they like to call it, “firing up their base.” They tell us how bad things will be if the other guy is elected. The world will end, the sun won’t come out tomorrow if he or she is elected so whatever you do, get out and vote for me.
Well, Massachusetts Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley has already started on “this country is sexist” routine.
According to Pressley, a woman, who was elected to the Congress, the United States of America was designed as a sexist place. So that’s why members of Congress need to support the Equal Rights Act, she says. When it inevitably fails, she can run on the “this country is sexist” stuff during election season.
I wonder when she’ll begin the “this country was racist from its founding” schtick?
