Leftists will do anything to seize power.
No tactic is off the table if they believe they have a chance to further their progressive agenda.
Now Democrats are floating the idea of canceling the Super Bowl for a ridiculous reason.
The Democratic Party is slipping further and further into the abyss of radical collectivism.
When Barack Obama crammed through the inaptly named Affordable Care Act, he and his affiliates said that single-payer health care was not the ultimate goal.
Lo and behold, less than a decade later, single-payer health care is now a core tenet of the Democratic Party platform.
The most popular and energizing voices within the Democratic caucus are openly socialist and push for tax rates as high as 90%.
The personification of this current wave of “socialism with a smile” is freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who recently used a sexually explicit term to describe her plans with the progressive agenda.
The latest blunder is one of countless gaffes, but it doesn’t matter.
No matter how much she proves to be ignorant of history, economics, and international relations, ironically the subject in which she majored in college, the mainstream media protect her and help her grow her popularity.
In the current Democratic Party, it’s okay to be as radical and outlandish as possible with no repercussions.
So it should come as no surprise that Democrats floated the idea of using the Super Bowl as a chip to end the government shutdown.
According to a Fox News report, a member of the House Democratic Caucus “floated the possibility that the ongoing partial federal government shutdown might affect federal authorities’ ability to secure the upcoming Super Bowl.”
This is nothing but a cheap ploy to end the government shutdown without approving a very reasonable $5.7 billion for a border fence, something the Democrats voted for years ago.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi used this same tactic by disinviting Donald Trump from Capitol Hill for the State of the Union address.
She said it was due to security concerns, but Homeland Security and other agencies quickly debunked that lie.
The Democrats’ position on border security is nonsensical and dishonest—they’ve been proponents of walls and increased protection for years—that their only task is to use propaganda and hope that the American people won’t notice their hypocrisy and empty rhetoric.
And the tide is slowly turning.
Most Americans still blame Trump for the shutdown, and the polls suggest Democrats are losing ground.
Even outspoken leftists like Cher believe Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer should end the shutdown.
It doesn’t help the Democrats’ cause when they’re taking jaunts to Puerto Rico to watch “Hamilton” and hobnob with the cast and D.C. lobbyists.
Canceling the Super Bowl would backfire in a serious way.
They’d try to blame Trump, but people can see what’s going on.
Many people on the left would be perfectly fine with the Super Bowl being canceled in some weird form of solidarity with anti-American anthem protester Colin Kaepernick.
Leftists bullied several musical artists from performing at halftime with Maroon 5.
Leftists would love nothing more than a Super Bowl shutdown.
They rely on chaos and destruction to push forward their radical goals.
