Arnold, a Democrat, said he came to the event at Smokey Row coffee house with an open mind. But he wanted to ask Gingrich about how he would represent him as president after reading past comments the former U.S. House Speaker as made about gay and lesbians.
“When you ask somebody a question and you expect them to support all Americans and have everyone’s general interest,” Arnold said. “It’s a little bit frustrating and disheartening when you’re told to support the other side. That he doesn’t’ need your support.”
The entire statement is a lie, but the biggest is bolded for ease of location.
This gentleman claims to be upset that a leader does not support a certain segment of the population, since we are "all Americans." Really? Maybe you should tell Christians. Or Capitalists. Or the middle class (i.e. those who work for a living.) Or white men. Or supporters of Israel. Or "the rich." Or "Tea Party terrorists."
Thomas Edsall sums up the new Democrat strategy thus; "All pretense of trying to win a majority of the white working class has been effectively jettisoned."
"Jettisoned." Cogitate on that one. Jettisoned in favor of two groups: The so-called poor, which are bought and paid for by government, and those we commonly refer to as "the elite" ("voters who have gotten ahead on the basis of educational attainment — professors, artists, designers, editors, human resources managers, lawyers, librarians, social workers, teachers and therapists,") these groups being further subdivided by race.
