Chuck Schumer and the Democrats thought they had Donald Trump on the ropes.
But Schumer badly miscalculated.
That’s because Chuck Schumer’s racist attack on white people backfired in this shocking way.
Democrats and their allies in the fake news media sought to make political hay out of Donald Trump defending the United States from the anti-American views of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley.
Every Democrat in Washington falsely accused President Trump of racism.
Democrats pounced on this line of attack because they thought it would drive a wedge between President Trump and the upscale suburban voters that are part of the traditional GOP coalition.
But Chuck Schumer stepped on that message.
The top Senate Democrat endorsed the policies of racial grievance and backed legislation setting up a committee to study paying reparations to the descendants of slavery.
”I will support the legislation by Sen. Cory Booker and Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee to establish a commission to study the issue of reparations for slavery and discrimination,” stated Schumer in announcing his support for this controversial legislation.
“I’ve always believed racism is the poison of America,” Schumer continued. “Racism is the poison of America and the disparities in race affect everything.”
Reporters immediately pressed Schumer on his support for racist legislation.
“I don’t think people understand that slavery is not far away,” Schumer explained to the press. “I think that’s the biggest problem. People say, ‘Oh, it happened way back then — what do we have to pay attention now?’ The legacy of slavery and Jim Crow — which is a type of semi-quasi of slavery — is still with us and so we need to do a lot more.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell previously shut down any talk of taking up legislation to pay reparations for slavery.
“I don’t think reparations for something that happened 150 years ago for whom none of us currently living are responsible is a good idea,” McConnell declared. “We’ve tried to deal with our original sin of slavery by fighting a civil war, by passing landmark civil rights legislation. We’ve elected an African American president.”
“The legacy of slavery and Jim Crow is still with us. What McConnell said was just preposterous and that’s why I’m supporting this legislation,” Schumer claimed.
Schumer’s support for this racially motivated redistribution of wealth flies in the face of the Democrats’ attempts to peel off a chunk of President Trump’s suburban white support.
President Trump won 52 percent of white women in 2016.
If Democrats can cut even two points off that number it could be enough to oust the President in 2020.
But by fashioning the election as a referendum on reparations for slavery, Democrats made their task that much more difficult.
Whatever qualms suburban women have with the President they are not going to support a Democrat Party that embraces radical and racist policies like reparations for slavery.
