The modern Democratic Party requires its members to exist in a state of constant self-delusion and ignorance of its many contradictions.
For example, the Democratic Party is the party of Yay Islam! but also the party of Gay Rights and Feminism. You must perform what George Orwell called “Doublethink” to be able to hold both views.
This is because the Democratic Party is the Diversity coalition and includes many groups that compete with one another culturally. Their interests often contradict, but the whole thing is tied together by Hatred Of Whitey. As long as the contradicting factions of the Democratic Party are all focused on hating white people, they won’t have time to think about the fact that they actually hate each other.
Cher, the loopy singer and leftwing activist today most known for her weirdly written tweets, broke from the Doublethink script accidentally thought for herself on the matter of illegal immigrants and sanctuary cities, and blurted this out:
Shorter version: “America First.”
Wait a minute. How are we supposed to take care of all these poor, hungry foreigners when we can’t even take care of our own poor and hungry?
This is what happens when Democrats actually take time to think about all the lies they are required to believe.
Somebody is going to have to break it to her that she’s not allowed to say that.
And how perfect is it that Cher herself, back in 2017, tweeted this:
Until yesterday, she had existed in a state of blissful ignorance holding two contradictory ideas at the same time: America has failed in its duty to take care of its poor and hungry, yet we are perfectly capable of welcoming with open arms every illegal immigrant that wants to come here.
It’s no surprise that Cher only took this opportunity to think for herself when faced with the prospect of several thousand “Dreamers” being dumped in her own backyard.
She was all about the “Dreamers” and the sanctuary cities back when it was an abstract concept that required no personal sacrifice or changes to her way of life.
But now that it’s actually time to live up to all that “Sanctuary Cities” and “No Human Being Is Illegal” and “Refugees Welcome” virtue signaling, she wants nothing to do with her prior statements.
“Wait a minute, this doesn’t make any sense at all!”
This is what happens when Democrats–specifically older, white Democrats–are forced to back up their talk with action.
“To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morally while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy, to forget, whatever it was necessary to forget, then draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forger it again, and above all, to apply the same process to the process itself–that was the ultimate subtlety: consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed. Even to understand the word “doublethink” involved the use of doublethink.”
