Miss Dowd is next at the guillotine



Many of us have wondered what the Wicked Witch of the West thought when Glinda the good witch told her, "Oh, rubbish! You have no power here. Now begone, before somebody drops a house on you too!"

Alas, 80 years after "The Wizard of Oz" debuted, we still don't know.

But today we have Maureen Dowd's column, "Spare Me the Purity Racket."

The 67-year-old Pulitzer winner was indignant. Why those young punks are mocking her over her column from two weeks ago, "Scaling Wokeback Mountain," in which she said, "Pelosi told me, after the AOC Squad voted against the House’s version of the border bill and trashed the moderates — the very people who provided the Democrats the majority — that the Squad was four people with four votes. She was talking about a legislative reality. If it was a knock, it was for abandoning the party.

"That did not merit AOC’s outrageous accusation that Pelosi was targeting 'newly elected women of color.' She slimed the speaker, who has spent her life fighting for the down-trodden and who was instrumental in getting the first African-American president elected and passing his agenda against all odds, as a sexist and a racist."

Well, the punks punched back.

They called her an elitist for, well, sucking up to the highest ranking Democrat in Washington (House Speaker Nancy Pelosi) and for hosting parties that are the must invitation in DC. This week's was for colleague Carl Hulse.

Well, she gave those whipper-snappers the old what-for.

She wrote in this week's column, "I, the daughter of a D.C. cop, and Carl, the son of an Illinois plumber, were hilariously painted as decadent aristocrats reveling like Marie Antoinette when we should have been knitting like Madame Defarge."

Her father was a cop, so that makes her part of the proletariat? Officer-By-Proxy Dowd does not get it. She is next at the guillotine.

Ann Althouse gets it. In her sparse review of Dowd's column, Althouse noted, "The top-rated comment over there begins 'No' and includes: 'why do you care if your high heels, parties and chocolates are criticized?... Democrats shouldn't back down on anything. This just says nothing matters anymore, not the law, not morality, not norms, not decency.... Democrats must fight, fight, fight to save our country.'"

What Dowd does understand is revolutions usually do not end with the winners hoisting a beer in celebration and then going back to their old jobs. No they usually continue in a brawl with people fighting one another and the skulls piling until a Napoleon (or a  Lenin or a Mao or a Castro) comes along and brings law and order for a small price.

Freedom.

Dowd may believe that she had no children, but she and the rest of the baby boomer liberals do have a brood called the Squad. Dowd and company fed them bull about how this nation was founded on genocide and how the Constitution was written to protect slavery and how we stole the West from Mexico.

We fought Indians and they fought back. The wars lasted more than 350 years.

The Constitution's 3/5ths provision was to protect the rest of the nation from slave owners stuffing the ballot box by counting their slaves as citizens.

And Mexico never inhabited most of the West that it ceded after the Mexican War. We took the Great American Desert and turned it into amber waves of grain. We did better with the land Mexico didn't want than Mexico did with the land it kept. I can see why they want to sneak over here and mooch.

Besides teaching a couple of generations to hate America, liberals pushed the affirmative action and Title IX that elevated women and minorities above white males.

Pelosi and Dowd are part of the team that decided demographics was the key to Democrat dominance in the second half of this century when white people are a minority.

What they overlooked was they are white people. And they will be a minority in their party long before the nation is.

So you have a couple of generations of Women of Color and the like who hate the country and think they are entitled to power.

The Squad is just a taste of what to expect.

For 2 1/2 years, Dowd and company have told us how horrible President Donald John Trump is. The New York Times, which employs her, has been a drum major for impeachment.

But now that it is obvious that won't happen, Dowd is standing athwart history yelling stop, but she cannot stop what she and her colleagues put in motion.

She wrote, "An impeachment could return Trump to power. The highchair king from Fifth Avenue would exult in his victimhood and energize his always-ready-to-be aggrieved followers.

"It could also lead to Democrats losing the House as their moderates fall and help Republicans hold the Senate. No Republicans would vote for impeaching Trump and some Democrats might refuse as well. Even if the House acted, Mitch McConnell would smother it in the Senate, just like he did Merrick Garland."

Merrick Garland?

You mean that old white man?

Why should these wise Latina, Somali, Palestinian, and black ladies care about an old white man?

The fact that Dowd does shows, to them, that she is a collaborator.

I wonder which of the New York Times non-white columnists will take her on because what happens on Daily Kos eventually happens on HuffPost where it eventually lands on the pages of the Times.

Thanks to Dowd, I now know what the Wicked Witch of the West thought. She thought she could stop Dorothy by setting the Strawman on fire.

How'd that work out when Dorothy threw that bucket of water to put the fire out?

  1. Great column Don. Looks like the opening battles are getting close to over and all out war will soon begin. The shot at Cummings was pretty delicious and right on target. A shot at Antifa hit the bullseye as well. Look for scrutiny on the book deals, speaking fees, foundations, corporate board positions etc as a way to stop the flow of laundered money to politcians. The Donald is all over it and their panties are in a bunch right now. Release the hounds....

  2. As I've written on other sites, the Progressive Army is brown troops led by white officers, and it was only a matter of time before the former would start fragging the latter. Good times, indeed.

    1. Of course the leftist National Socialists truly believe that all Republicans lack backbones, and Trump will eventually resign because any other Republican wouldn't fight back... it's unseemly. Undignified. And damn it, the totalitarian society will prevail, and you "vill Like It, you vill..."

  4. What a great column. My favorite paragraph:

We did better with the land Mexico didn't want than Mexico did with the land it kept. I can see why they want to sneak over here and mooch.

    I'm just going to call you "Butter", Don, because you're on a helluva roll!

    2. I find it interesting that America captured all of Mexico and only kept what we now have. I sometimes think of the Africans in Zimbabwe who reportedly long for the return of the whites to save their country from the dictatorship that has been in place since independence. If the Left takes over, I wonder how many of them will be part of the 25,000,000 Bill Ayers thought he would have to eradicate.

  5. They have yet to figure out Trump fights. He is not
    a "highchair King" and we are not his "aggrieved" followers. Sorry Mo, we are winning-thanks to PDJT.

  7. Great insight into the fallacy of the Dem's strategy of using RACISM as their platform for over 100 yrs. First opposing Civil Rights for African-Americans, then pivoting to being their pseudo benefactors/champions and now actively promoting racial divide. Their chickens are coming home to roost.

  9. If slavery still existed in America today the slaveowners would insist on their slaves right to vote. Then the slaveowners would "harvest" their ballots and turn them in to the registrar.

    The slaves would "vote" 99+% for the Democrats.

    1. Which is exactly what those continuing to be slaves do, vote heavily for their once-owners!

      Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee once said, "I stand here as a freed slave..." but she's not free, she's still on the Democrat plantation, still picking their cotton.

      Nor will she ever acknowledge who freed the slaves; she likes to pretend it was Democrats who did that instead of the Republicans who actually did.

      It amazes me that black Dems are so blind to reality!

      Delete
    2. Oh, they're not blind. They know who will reward quid pro quo for their vote and to hell with the country and it's people. They know the GOP would not be quite so forthright in their corruption of votes for dollars so they stick with who the paymaster party.

    3. My son manages a crew of 20, almost all Blacks from the inner city. They don't vote, period but when they ask my son, a conservative, questions, he answers honestly and they find it hard to believe his answers, but he is a very fair and honest manager so they are impressed. They normally only hear rumors and the MSM false news.

      Blacks I have talked to find it hard to believe that MLK was a registered Republican among other things like which party got the Civil Rights Act passed. With the other party being responsible for the KKK, Jim Crow, segregation, lynchings, gun control, voter suppression and other anti-American policies.

      I have written the President that he needs to go into the inner city and challenge the Democrats with his record of accomplishments for minorities. I wrote Romney the same thing which he ignored. The Democrats NEED the Black vote to win congress and the presidency. The media will not tell the truth, so President Trump needs to deliver the message himself.

  10. Great, great column. You have nailed the truth. What good insight, yes the left is reaping what they have sown.
    The remaining question is how does this now play out? Will there be enough young people that realize how destructive the left's distortions are to successfully defend the republic?

    1. We got obongo because public (government) schools de-emphasized the 3Rs and started promoting the liberal agenda. Critical thinking skills are almost gone entirely. Does that answer your question?

  13. After all this time I find it awestrucking, that your Dems still do not understand President Trump. Do they forget he was one of them for decades? He knows them inside and out and knows all their weaknesses. He also knows the Alinsky playbook, like all good Dems. The buttons to push, to get the Dems to self destruct, must appear huge to your President.

    He rings the bell, the dems salivate.

    What a great time to be alive!

  14. Marvellous column, Don! You hit it right out of the ballpark!

    "The Constitution's 3/5ths provision was to protect the rest of the nation from slave owners stuffing the ballot box by counting their slaves as citizens."

    Never before have I seen this simple concept put so concisely, and I'm shamelessly stealing it! With attribution of course, so that when the Left starts in on their lies about the 3/5 I can "trump" them immediately!

    Dowd is is like the proverbial deer in the headlights.

    Frankly if a radical leftist gets elected next year then we'll soon see many states move toward secession. It will mark the return of states' rights and the 10th amendment the most ignored one of all.

    1. Dowd wrote
      If the Democratic Party is going to be against chocolate, high heels, parties and fun, you’ve lost me.

      If she really believes that's an accurate characterization then she is toast. Her head is in the clouds so she cannot see the scorched Earth below.

      It sure looks like the Dem elites have lost touch with their own grassroots.

    2. The only in touch contact the democrats have ever had with their grassroots is when they shit on them.

      The variety of flavors of the democrat fertilizers are many.

      Still, all manure.

      And pretty crappy manure at that.

  19. I just can't get over how out of touch Dowd is today with her own party.

    She calls the leftists modern puritans. Frankly the last 40 years the entire dem party has turned puritannical.

    They see DC as their personal ministry to stop all social sins. Its a messianic vision.

    Or just look at ANY op-ed piece by a liberal. They all are dripping with sanctimony. Once you read it you feel like you've read a church sermon and need to repent.

    Liberals see themselves without sin so they've been throwing stones for a very long time. And when people see you socializing with the people your industry claims to hold accountable, don't be shocked when people hold you in contempt.

  20. Dowd's reference to Obama's appointment of Judge Garland to SCOTUS just brings into focus that his appointment was NOT submitted to a Senate confirmation vote based on the Principle set forth by Senator Joe Biden, i.e., that a president should not appoint a new Justice to the Supreme Court during the final year of his term. Why is it so difficult for Dowd and her followers to see the logic espoused by the Democratic hero, Joe Biden?
