Every once in a while on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” The Tuck takes a break from tucking in SJWs and instead lets a guest do the hard work. Recently, The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald demolished the Democratic Party establishment for its utter failure to take away any lessons from the presidential election.
“The Democrats don’t have control of either the Senate or the House – the Republicans do – and they now have lost two-thirds of governorships, which are also now in the hands of the Republican party,” Greenwald reminded. “And they are one statehouse away from enabling the Republicans to convene a Constitutional Convention on their own.”
“It’s a party that has collapsed as a national political force in the United States,” Greenwald concluded. “It’s not just the presidential election.”
When pressed to describe how the Democratic Party winded up in such dire straits and why it lost power, Greenwald noted that its party leaders are so “obsessed” with insulting Donald Trump and fabricating Russian conspiracy theories that they have not thought to look inward.
According to Greenwald, the Republicans circled the wagons in 2012 after their losses in the presidential and congressional elections and performed an “autopsy” to determine what had gone wrong, allowing them to approach the 2016 elections with renewed vigor.
Meanwhile, “the Democrats are showing no signs of self-critique,” Greenwald opined. “Why did they lose? They lost because they favored policies throughout the 1990s – such as free trade, such as getting rid of all the restraints on Wall Street, such as having jobs go overseas – that the Clintons advocated.”
He went on to criticize the Democratic Party for re-nominating Nancy Pelosi as House Minority Leader when she is one of the wealthiest and most establishment-entrenched, as well as Chuck Schumer for Senate Minority Leader when he “spent his career serving Wall Street.”
