A helpful reminder of just where that Overton window will be opening next.
The reception, "Way to Win: 2022 Victory Party," was presented as a look forward at what's possible if Democrats can be effective in coming elections.
"It's 2022 and we are celebrating policy victories across the nation: Medicare for All and Free College, and next on the agenda is Reparations," the group projected, according to an invitation to the event.
"Because we’re governing with gusto, we’re seeing victories up and down the ballot—including winning a governorship in Texas and putting 38 electoral votes in grasp by 2024," it says. "Stop in 2020 and 2019 when local power builders turned Arizona and Florida solidly blue and established Virginia as a progressive governance juggernaut."
The event was headlined with a speech by Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who the group predicted would "set the course for a new wave of leaders." She was pictured on the night of the event with McAuliffe, who was also a featured speaker at the conference and is considering a run for president in 2020.
The Free Beacon picked that up from a Democracy Alliance event, Soros' own SPECTRE club in which lefty donors with enough cash get to decide how to run the country. (Because that's just how democracy works in Sorostan and America.)
Pushing reparations may sound crazy, but yesterday's crazy ideas are quickly mainstreamed. Protesting the national anthem makes you a civil rights hero. Free speech is a threat to minorities.
Compared to that, skin color reparations are a much easier sell.
And strategically they make sense.
Reparations polarize the country and poison the racial atmosphere. That was the wildly successful strategy that got Obama in. And if you're going to turn out black voters, offering them actual cash is a great incentive.
It will, obviously, push more white Democrats out of the party. But the whole majority minority strategy has been based around the idea that white Democrats don't matter. Trump's victory showed that they do. But the Dems have pulled off some wins since then by splitting white voters. And the reparations push shows that they intend to go right back to the majority minority strategy.
It'll tear apart the country. And that's what the left really wants.
But maybe it's Soros' victims who should really be getting reparations.
