Tuesday during CNN’s coverage of the Virginia elections, commentator and former Obama administration official Van Jones correctly noted that his fellow Democrats come across as “annoying and offensive and seem out of touch in ways.”
“This is a turbulent and volatile period. When you see this much motion in such a short period of time, I think Democrats have to look in the mirror right now,” Jones confessed. Indeed they do. “I think that the Democrats are coming across in ways that we don’t recognize that are annoying and offensive and seem out of touch in ways that I don’t think show up in our feeds when we’re looking at our kind of echo chamber, and I think it’s a message here.”
Jones added, “I’m trying to make a point here, which is that there’s an opportunity, I think, for the Democratic Party to take this seriously. It’s the rural folks and suburban folks that is the coalition they have to win. We have got to win a different way. But it goes through the same suburban voters, and we have to have a bigger outcome in the urban area. Here’s, you know, I think when it’s all over, you are going to see the suburban — what we thought was a Democratic coalition was really just anti-Trump coalition.”
The Democrat coalition is dominated not just by anti-Trumpers but by Marxist revolutionaries determined to cause the collapse of America and American power as we know it. That’s what Virginia voters — normal Americans — were pushing back against.
