Five Massive Progressive Flip-Flops by Democrats This Year

AMAC Exclusive

Democrat

For progressive elites and many in the mainstream media, one rule must always be upheld: The narrative of the day is all that matters.

The obvious result of this maxim is that those adhering to it – namely Democrat politicians and media personalities – blatantly contradict themselves on an almost daily basis. But in the age of 24-hour news, these individuals almost never face scrutiny. When the news moves so quickly, there is no time to look back.

Thankfully, most ordinary Americans have a memory that extends back farther than yesterday’s news cycle. But just in case you’ve lost track, here are a few prominent examples of liberal flip-flopping that the mainstream media and Big Tech would rather sweep under the rug.

  1. Election integrity:

On election night in 2016, ABC News personality and progressive acolyte Martha Raddatz looked at the numbers and said, “There is something else going on here.” She seemed incredulous at the notion that the establishment could have failed to elect Hillary Clinton. Surely, she seemed to be saying, the pollsters and the D.C. consultant class couldn’t have got it that wrong.

 Little did we know how that narrative would translate into four years of Democrats and mainstream media pundits warning Americans again and again that “democracy is fragile” and “democracy was highjacked” because the preferred candidate of the radical left failed to defeat a first-time politician in President Trump. Democrats spread conspiracy theories that ranged from Russia hacking the election to President Trump being a “Russian asset.” In advance of the 2020 election, time and time again, progressives suggested and even outright stated that the election could be stolen. HBO even released a documentary that “exposed” how vulnerable our system was to attack.

 Then Biden was declared the winner.

Suddenly, concern about election integrity was not only wrong but “idiotic.” Suddenly, the same people who said our election system was dangerously vulnerable now claim that the 2020 election was the “most secure in history.” Perhaps if Biden had lost, they would feel differently.

  1. Vaccinations:

Vaccines and inoculations are medical miracles that have saved countless lives. That is why it’s so concerning that Democrats spent over a year questioning and delegitimizing the COVID-19 vaccine. Kamala Harris infamously said during the debate that “If Donald Trump tells us to take It, I’m not taking it.” On the campaign trail, Biden actively questioned the potential vaccine and demanded that it be vetted by international experts before being distributed.

 Then Biden was declared the winner.

Suddenly, the exact same vaccine that was developed under the Trump Administration through Operation Warp Speed was unquestionably ready for prime time. Not only was it ready, but anyone who questioned it was complicit in all COVID-19 deaths. Recently, CNN and President Biden himself have suggested that Facebook and Fox News are “killing” people by permitting discussion on the effectiveness of the vaccine. They are demanding immediate censorship.

 Ironically, the last time Facebook censored information regarding the virus, it was censoring individuals who theorized that COVID-19 originated in a lab in China. Even CNN has now acknowledged that theory to be not only plausible but likely

  1. Cuba

Progressives and so-called “Democratic Socialists” have lionized the Communist state of Cuba for decades. Specifically, they note the comprehensive literacy (above 95%) and free medical care – both of which they falsely attribute to the policies of the Castro regime. Regardless, controversial progressives like Nikole Hannah-Jones have praised the Cuban government for their alleged stellar record on human rights and equality. According to most liberals, Cuba was a sort of socialist paradise.

 Then the protests last week exposed the truth.

 Suddenly, many Democrats in the United States could no longer deny how bad things have gotten in Cuba under socialist rule. As the Cuban people accused the Cuban government of abusing their human rights via the very type of government progressives assert will guarantee human rights, liberals looked to be in a very compromising position.

 In another incredible about face, Democrats attempted to claim that protests were not about basic human freedoms being denied to the Cuban people, but were instead due simply to power outages and medical shortages. But even if you believed this obvious mischaracterization of the demonstrations, it still doesn’t explain how liberals’ supposed shining example of socialized medicine is now suffering from widespread “medical shortages,” all while the much-demonized American healthcare system is firing on all cylinders and has distributed hundreds of millions of COVID-19 vaccines.

  1. Socialism

For decades, progressives have been laying the groundwork for a mainstream socialist party in America. In 2016, they succeeded.

The rise of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders made Democratic-Socialism the new standard of the Democratic party. With young disciples like New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the movement went mainstream. In 2020, then-candidate Joe Biden – ostensibly a moderate – announced the “Biden-Sanders Progressive Unity Platform.” No matter what the ideological makeup of their individual districts, all Congressional Democrat were expected to toe the socialist line.

But then the 2020 election happened.

Suddenly, a House and Senate contest that seemed like the Democrats’ to lose became only a pyrrhic victory. Many Congressional Democrats were defeated in moderate districts they were expected to win. Now, Democrats appear to be in an open civil war over socialist policies. In a leaked call following the loss, centrist Democrats like Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.) outright said “we need to not ever use the word ‘socialist’ or ‘socialism’ ever again. . . We lost good members because of that.”

5. Defund the Police

 Following the death of George Floyd, progressives asserted that police not only failed to stop crime, but actually did more harm than good. Their solution? Diverting funds allocated for local police departments to social services and mental health counselors. Pledging to defund the police was practically a prerequisite to being a Democrat candidate for public office in 2020.

 What could go wrong?

Now, with crime rates spiking nationwide and violent murders increasing by the day, Democrats are scrambling to escape the narrative they themselves created, and are even attempting to pin their own policy on Republicans. In one incredible example, Biden press Secretary Jen Psaki claimed that it was Republicans who in fact sought to defund police by not voting for Biden’s massive boondoggle of a “COVID relief” package. After promising to disband their police departments, many liberal cities are now also reversing their position and instead pledging to hire more police. After explicitly stating that he was for defunding the police during his campaign, first-term Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) changed his tone on the issue as crime spiked in his home city, and now says that he only wants “smarter policing.” Examples of such rank hypocrisy abound among the radical left.

So, the moral of the story is that no matter what absurdity you might hear from progressive D.C. insiders today, don’t worry. They’ll be saying something different tomorrow.

These are all god examples of Democrat lies, but the article fails to mention the biggest lie told by the Democrats!
The Democrats favored the Confederacy, they formed a supposed Christian group called the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) who openly hated, and murdered blacks, not one Democrat voted for the Civil Rights Act. Then realizing that their past would not be beneficial in the future, they suddenly ignored their history, instead took the approach to make people think that they were the saviors and protectors of the blacks, that they were suddenly “the people’s party”. Then proceeded to convince many blacks they were helpless victims of racism, incapable of helping themselves, that the Democrats would do for them what they were incompetent to do for themselves, convinced them that they needed government help through welfare, making them dependent on the government.

And what blows my mind is THAT IT WORKED! And it still does. How can people, and not just blacks, see what is right before their faces, then ignore it when they tell a lie about it, just ignoring the FACTS of the past and accepting the LIE as now TRUE?

This is the hugely successful tactic of the Democrat Party, ignore the truth, tell a lie, and it will be accepted as truth. Then cheat the Presidential Election to gain the White House, and Congress, and conspire with those who support them in the media, big tech and social media to all parrot the false narrative.

This is how the Marxist Democrats have put themselves in a place of power in America. What has happened to the rational thinking people that they ignore fact and past history so completely, and accept lies so easily?

Excuse me. Election integrity is a bigger issue more than ever. The election was obviously rigged. Biden didn’t win. He didn’t even come close.

The truth is the Democrats came out with their “Defund the police” simply because all the police kneeling on blacks’ necks and other abuse, because of their systemic racism and Trump, were all hired, trained, and managed by Democrat mayors. It was nothing more than a distraction from how Democrats run their police departments (though personally I believe the DoJ should be investigating their stand down orders that allow violence to occur, which IMHO violate the civil rights of thei victims of that violence).

The riots, looting, arson, violence and mostly peaceful protests, should have been directed at Democrat machines that write the police procedures to kneel on blacks’ necks. And yeah, it would be justice of a sort, if Kamala was bailing out rioters attacking Democrat mayors.

Yeah, Democrat Talking Points are like the South Central Texas weather! If you don’t like it, just wait a few minutes, and it’ll reverse itself! Funny how they still try to blame all the bad things happening under their hand on President Trump! BUT, I must admit that I was wrong about Biden/ Harris! I predicted before the election was stolen that should Biden win, he wouldn’t serve a full month before something “happened” to him and Harris moved up! Turns out I WAS WRONG…

Their blaming previous administrations for things that happen on their watch, is an admission their actions have no effect on anything. It also contradicts their promises about what they’ll deliver to voters.

Please call them ” Regressives ” , instead of ” progressives ” . As Calvin Coolidge said , There is no progress beyond individual liberty and the Bill of Rights. ( Paraphrasing a bit , there. ) The labels they use are lies , so we can’t let them define themselves.

Yup! Trust me, when they finally get what they want, and have a “Socialist” Government in control, I just don’t think they’re gonna like it! Then it’s back to the (Revolutionary) Drawing Board. The roots of the Tree of Freedom must be watered periodically with the blood of Patriots, or something like that…

Thank you for mentioning Congressperson Jamal Bowman’s “change of attitude “ towards defunding the police which occurred right after he has a joint podcast with AOC where she called the questions about the rising crime situation as trivial “hysteria” when both she (AOC) and Jamal Bowman have asked for extra protection for themselves. Both of them received denounced negative statements from people who are in their districts condemning the attitude of defunding the police and allowance of no control over the criminal activity that are occurring. Especially here in NYS with the revolving door of arrest, arraignment release commit a crime, repeat. Proving how incorrect is their reasoning.

I don’t watch the news or read newspapers. The media is so bad. All I know for sure is this, there is a God in heaven who is Truth completely. I trust in Him alone. I pray every day that He will bring a great and godly revival to America, that this country will walk in His absolute truth. He is still on His throne and some day will bring His plan about, and will rule on this earth with truth. We won’t need any media.

Watching the television ‘news’ is not on my schedule anymore either. The only authority you can truly depend on is: God & His Son Jesus Christ. The television is ‘god’ to so many people. They believe literally everything they see on the ‘flat screen’. People will eventually evolve into having heads that are shaped like ‘flat screens’!

It is sad, but it is also exciting. We are the generation that is seeing God’s Word come alive. Things written in the Bible thousands of years ago are happening right before our eyes. Read Romans chapter 1, read II Thessalonians chapter 2, read II Timothy chapter 3 and see for yourself. How did they know the times would be like this? Has to be God sharing the future with the.

Thanks, Kevin. Reading those scriptures really puts the devil’s and his minions shenanigans into perspective, provides a clarity to God’s people where and what to see, with what to be wary. It also reminds us that at times we have to put on the brakes and take a good look in the mirror, and to be the examples God commands us to be, for our children and our fellow man. No easy task. Plus, I talk too much. Thanks again.

George Orwell’s view of a dystopian world as presented in his book 1984 seems to be coming to fruition (if not already here). Insanity in the Demshevik pantheon is metastasizing exponentially and constitutes a virulent disease inflicting our nation. That such a broad spectrum of the Demsheviks can embrace institutionalize lies as a central plank of their party’s platform and daily agenda speaks volumes about the dysfunctionality that now plagues our nation.
 
These Demsheviks and their fawning adherents exemplify massive ignorance bordering on illiteracy, complete moral bankruptcy, and an ingrained and outsized egotistical arrogance on a level unseen and unmatched before. Their actions suggest adjectives of “frenzy” and “mania” (among others) to properly quantize the nature of what they are perpetrating in today’s political arena against America.
 
The Demsheviks have truly become a cancer on our nation. The only cure available is via the ballot box in 2022 and 2024, and at this point even this is not a sure thing. Americans need to vote these cancerous politicians out of office en masse and replace them with decent, intelligent and right-thinking folks who believe in America as it has been and should continue to be – a beacon of freedom to the world, one that is consistent with the views and dreams of our Founding Fathers.

Democrats never flip-flop as they reserve the right to be wrong and find someone else to blame on ay issue. They are totally without shame, integrity or a conscience, just as the GOP is bereft of moral fortitude and courage. The two party system is a bipartisan assault upon the principles of self-government and freedom.

The Democrats are frequently caught lying and flip-flopping. However, there is so much apathy among the American public, that many Americans act like they can’t even be bothered to identify the facts. I can honestly say that most of my relatives are so wrapped up in their own lives that they assume that our Constitutional Republic will take care of itself because of “checks and balances.” Sadly, most of my relatives live in a fantasy world in which our political system runs on “automatic pilot.” They chronically rationalize that politics is the business of the politicians, not the average American citizen. It’s tragic how mentally lazy many American are. What happened to the concept of civic responsibility? Over the last 50 years, our educational system has become increasingly dysfunctional.
