Ever since losing the 2016 presidential election, Democrats have been struggling to find a new identity and message that resonates with mainstream America.
Republicans will tell you that because of a lack of message, the Democratic Party and its operatives continue to spiral out of control and have resorted to using the same desperate, antiquated and scorched earth political tactics that have been employed for years.
One of those tactics is playing the race card, or accusing Republicans of being racists. In July, Rep. Ted Deutch (D) referred to the Trump administration as being comprised of racists who “brought new Jim Crow-style efforts to disenfranchise minority and low-income voters throughout the country.”
Now Deutch’s fellow Democratic member of congress, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is fundraising on the questionable notion that The White House is filled with bigots with “hateful views.”
Wasserman Schultz is calling on President Trump to fire senior White House advisors Stephen Miller and Sebastian Gorka because she believes that they are just as bigoted as former Trump Senior Advisor Stephen Bannon.
Here is Wasserman Schultz’s letter:
Steve Bannon has been ousted from the White House. And that’s good to see, albeit long overdue.
But here’s the big question now: Will Trump stop there?
Steve Bannon is one man. The White House is still filled with people who espouse bigotry, hatred, and all kinds of hateful views.
Stephen Miller and Sebastian Gorka are both high-ranking officials that are pushing the same worldview, policies, and hatred that Bannon did.
If Trump wants to prove he is sincere about condemning white supremacy, then he can prove it with his actions — by firing all White House staffers, including Miller and Gorka, who peddle intolerance and bigotry.
Trump is always saying he’s a strong, decisive leader. It’s time he put up or shut up.
Will Democratic efforts to brand Trump and his administration as racists work?
