So Much for the AOC Endorsement
(Note: Slightly shorter MB today because I was having internet problems at home and at my remote coffee place office. Still…the show must go on!)
To the horror of leftists worldwide, people who don’t think like they do have once again spoken in an election. The rubes from the hinterlands got their knuckles off the ground just long enough to send the anti-Semitic Jeremy Corbyn and his Labour libs to defeat.
Whether this sends a message to American Democrats or not remains to be seen. They’re a bit lacking in self-awareness over here, and they will probably have a variety of talking points explaining why there are no parallels. They may want to find some, however:
One lesson from the UK: if the Democrats don't stop their hard-left slide, they'll suffer the same fate as Labour. If they don't move off their support for mass immigration, they're toast. Ditto the wokeness. Left Twitter is not reality.

The fact that a politician who has been embraced by President Trump notched a victory that none of them wanted him to have — or thought he would get — has to be a tough one to swallow.

That’s the kind of hot take you can expect from a guy who sincerely retweets Max Boot.
Anyone who has been following UK politics recently knows that the leftists there have the same sneering attitude toward conservatives that the Democrats here do. Unearned superiority makes people and political parties cocky, which in turn makes them easy to defeat.
On to 2020, my friends.

This is from a few years ago but it’s a great way to head into the weekend. My ancestral homeland FTW!
TGIF from the bottom of my H.
