“Well that escalated quickly” has never been as true as the bizarre conclusion by aspiring candidate for something, Stacey Abrams.
Why this happened is fairly obvious. Stacey was invited to a national security forum. I’m not convinced that she can spell national security. And, anyway, national security among Democrats these days means bizarre Russia conspiracies.
Abrams launched into a speech claiming that any effort to prevent voter is really voter suppression. That’s up her alley because her entire candidacy for whatever is based on the claim that she would have won if it hadn’t been for voter suppression.
If voter suppression exists, Stacey is a viable candidate. If it doesn’t, she’s a delusional nutjob.
But after delivering her voter suppression spiel, she has to pivot to national security, aka Russian conspiracies. And she does this in a way that would have gotten her cheers at a Republican convention in the 1950s.
This is one of those moments when you realize just how unmoored Democrats have from any historical reality. The movement that had been squealing about McCarthyism for two generation is now declaring, “If we do not secure our democracy in 2020 … we will be having a very different conversation, potentially in Russian, in 2030.”
Better dead than red.
The Democrats finally came around. It just took them 70 years.
Exit question. Does Stacey speak Russki?
