Whenever the Democrat Party knows they’re losing, they resort to either identity politics or untrue claims of racism.
Sadly, the left has become reliant upon accusations of “isms” and “obias” in order to remain relevant in politics. Their policies are a nightmare and they really can’t bring substantial arguments to challenge conservatives; therefore, the progressive course of action entails victimhood and character assassinations.
2020 Democrat Amy Klobuchar is a prime example of this. During last night’s Las Vegas Democrat debate, the Minnesota senator used her gender as a case to boost her campaign. Per Klobuchar’s own admission, she believes that nominating a female candidate will “stop sexism on the internet,” as noted by Breitbart News.
Klobuchar’s Case for Nominating a Female Candidate
There is nothing inherently wrong with female presidential candidates; however, asserting one’s gender as a reason to win a nomination and presidency is wrong.
Qualifications, experience, and policies ought to determine how someone fares in an election, not the identity politics of their gender, race, etc. Still, Klobuchar stated last night that nominating a woman would “go a long way” and let Democrats “show [their] stuff.”
This isn’t Klobuchar’s first time making these types of comments either; she has previously claimed that her womanhood is working against her in the 2020 presidential election. However, there’s simply no proof to confirm such a claim. Klobuchar’s poor policies, inability to excite voters, and failure to stand out from the crowd is what’s hurting her, not the fact that she’s a woman.
The Calling Card of Desperation
Klobuchar’s decision to resort to her gender as a means of furthering her campaign signifies that her run is essentially over. The senator never really brought much to the race anyway and has consistently remained as a low-polling candidate, despite qualifying to appear on various debate stages.
There are many women, especially on the right, who would qualify as good presidential candidates. Amy Klobuchar doesn’t fall into that category and neither does the unhinged, crazed socialist Elizabeth Warren. If Klobuchar is truly interested in learning why her candidacy is not really going anywhere, she should first take a look at her policies and how she’s chosen to present herself in this race.
