Being a Democrat Means Eventually Having to Say You’re Sorry
Last week, a former advisor to Democrats Al Gore and Bill Clinton made an extraordinary confession and apologized to conservatives and Republicans for being so wrong about so many things.
Naomi Wolf issued a “formal letter of apology” for believing the Democrats’ “lies” about the January 6th attack on the Capitol:
I was duped, and that as a result I made mistakes in judgement, and that these mistakes, multiplied by the tens of thousands and millions on the part of people just like me, hurt millions of other people like you all, in existential ways…. I believed that Pres Trump instigated the riot at the Capitol — because I did not know that his admonition to his supporters to assemble “peacefully and patriotically” had been deleted from all of the news coverage that I read…. I owe you a full-throated apology.
She also apologized for lots of other things she wrongly believed:
- I also believed wholesale so much else that has since turned out not to be as I was told it was by NPR, MSNBC and The New York Times.
- I believed that stories about Hunter Biden’s laptop were Russian propaganda… til it was debunked.
- I believed that President Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia — until that assertion was dropped.
- I believed that President Trump was a Russian asset, because the legacy media I read, said so
- I believed in the entire Steele dossier, until I didn’t, because it all fell apart.
And here’s the kicker: “I am sorry I believed so much nonsense.”
Nonsense. In the Right’s terms, Naomi Wolf got red-pilled, hit with undeniable doses of reality. It really only takes five minutes with someone to rip apart the Left’s phony narratives and deprogram people out of the Democrat cult. This is why the Democrats are afraid of people like me and do their darndest to shut us up. Twitter and Facebook censored me. It didn’t work. The traffic on my website where this commentary appears is quadruple what it was when I was banned. I’m on several TV stations in the West and lots of websites repost my work. I’m doing just fine without Facebook and Twitter, and I’m just getting started.
Naomi Wolf is not the only liberal to apologize to conservatives, recently. Others apostatizing from the Democrat faith include a former Reuters editor who admitted he was misled on climate change. “The idea climate change threatens the health, safety and economic well-being of people worldwide is an assertion, not a fact,” he wrote. Moreover, there is no scientific consensus CO2 is to blame for the planet’s warming in the last 10,000 years. Scientists he asked backed away from making any such claim.
Then there’s the abortion doctor and the abortion clinic business developer who both confessed recently they knew abortion was the taking of innocent human life. The abortionist confessed to murdering countless children, but pro-life outreach changed the abortionist’s mind. For his part, the developer is now pro-life and fighting to end abortion.
For a Democrat mom in Pennsylvania, it was the Democrats’ appalling COVID lockdowns leading to learning loss in school that led her away from the Democrat Party. A New York City councilman switched to the Republican Party because the Democrats are too soft on crime and making everyone unsafe. For another former liberal, it wasn’t any one thing. It was a 30-year process of watching the Left’s pronouncements not match up with reality, helped along by the insufferable “arrogance and snobbery” of Leftist elites. The #WalkAway movement of former Democrats from a few years ago, is still going strong. Their testimonies contain all kinds of reasons to leave the Democrat fold.
But my favorite apostasy story is the young woman who told me some years ago that, for her, it was the blue dress – Bill Clinton’s sexual escapades with Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office. Like I said, it only takes minutes to sweep the fairy dust off people and get them to realize the Democrats have a lot to be sorry about and apologize for.
