Glenn Greenwald Ridicules Axios Observation That Democrats 'Are Becoming' Party of Wealthy Elites

Let’s first go bottom-line.

The Democrat Party has, for six decades, done an excellent job building a political model by which wealthy elites (see: George Soros, et al.) manipulate useful idiots (principally, Democrat politicians and liberal media sock puppets) who in turn do whatever is necessary to program (lie their asses off to) low-information voters— many of them willfully so — to support initiatives solely constructed to keep the elites in power.


Lyndon Baines Johnson’s so-called “War on Poverty” — a colossal failure that led far more people into poverty than out of it — illustrates the above two objectives perfectly.

The Democrat elitist goal of not only creating a permanent majority underclass but a majority underclass that would “permanently” vote Democrat was achieved — spectacularly so. The vast majority of black voters have, for sixty years, dutifully gone to the polls and voted straight Democrat tickets.

Perfect example: While black Americans comprise just 13.4 percent of the total U.S. population, in the 2016 presidential election blacks cast 24 percent of Democratic primary votes — the largest share ever. In the general election, an astonishing 89 percent of black voters supported Hillary Clinton.

Finally, here’s the true genius of the Democrat Party model:

Democrat politicians have convinced the strong majority of black voters that, while they (Democrats) haven’t delivered on most of their promises (which they never intend to deliver in the first place), things would be far worse if the Democrats weren’t around to protect them from the “evil” Republicans.

In summary, what we see above is the upper crust of the Democrat Party exploiting low-information voters solely for the purpose of remaining in power.

Enter, Glenn Greenwald.

Investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald, among the best on the planet, in my not-so-humble opinion, blasted left-“leaning” Axios on Wednesday over the latter’s “shocking revelation” that the Democrat Party is as I described it above. Almost, that is. As Axios put it in a piece titled The Great Realignment, the Democrats are becoming the party of upscale America.


AXIOS: “We’re seeing a political realignment in real time.” [sic]

“Dems are becoming the party of upscale voters concerned more about” social issues.

GOP is “quietly building a multiracial coalition of working-class voters.”

Wait— haven’t the Democrats told America for decades that they are the party of the working class? And, by “social issues,” Democrats today primarily refer to on-demand abortion until birth, same-sex marriage, gender, and pronoun self-identification.

Greenwald was just getting started. In reference to a New York Times article titled Republicans Elevate Diverse Recruits in Bide to Win House Majority, he ridiculed the hypocrisy of the “corporate press” for its narrative to the contrary:

While the corporate press pushes the self-serving narrative that the Trump-led GOP is a white supremacist party devoted to implementing a white nationalistic dictatorship, Latino voters are rushing to GOP while GOP has its most diverse class ever in 2022:

The Times article focused in part on Arizona Republican Juan Ciscomani, who is campaigning for a congressional seat with a focus on inflation, border security, and an explicit appeal for unity, in a district evenly populated by Democrat, Republican, and independent voters.


In this respect, Axios was right:

As I reported in December 2021, Hispanic voters are abandoning the Democrat Party in droves. A then-recent poll found that 42 percent of Hispanic Voters have walked away from the Democrats and toward the Republican Party since 2018. That is profound. Warranted as hell, but profound just the same.

In addition, a Rasmussen survey at the time found that 48 percent of Hispanics would support a generic Republican on the ballot if the 2024 presidential election were held “today,” compared to 46 percent for a generic Democrat. Given just three years ago, a yuuge deal indeed.

Translation: The Democrat goal of a permanent majority underclass is not going to happen.

Greenwald correctly noted that the Democrat Party relies on “a slice of well-off socially liberal voters and as such have “a bigger advantage among white college graduates than nonwhite voters” — the exact kind of people who work in national media and hence drive the Democrats’ “false narratives.”

And here’s the key: Without a strong plurality of independent voters and minority voters behind them, the Democrats can push fake news and false narratives to their disingenuous (at best) hearts’ content, and ultimately, freedom-loving Americans will prevail.


The bottom line:

While Axios was correct in its observation that the Republican Party is building a multiracial coalition, like all “good” left-wing “news” outlets, it’s the rest of the story that is newsworthy — which Axios “forgot” to include. Millions of minority voters — including black voters — continue to abandon the Democrats and their decades of hollow promises and bald-faced lies.

Meanwhile, those “upscale voters” appear more concerned with pushing insanity like male menstruation, gender and pronoun self-identification, and on-demand abortion until birth.

Untold numbers of conservatives have shared with me their (fill in the blank) belief, utter frustration, anger, resignation, hopelessness, or realization that America as we know it is lost to the rabid left; that it is too late to save the Ship of State. I get it.

But, while I’m more of a pragmatist — a realist — than a pie-in-the-sky optimist, I reject the notion that it’s too late to save the country we love. While things are likely to worsen before they get better, I believe decent, moral, hard-working America will win out in the end.


Oh, and for starters, let’s not screw up the 2024 presidential election.
