Irony Alert: A Democrat Complains About People Being Split Into Groups?

I found this quote from Democratic strategist Donna Brazile to be deliciously ironic,

“Paul, baby, we need to not divide and polarize the Democratic Party. . . . So stop the divisions. Stop trying to split us into these groups, Paul, because you and I know . . . how Democrats win, and to simply suggest that Hillary’s coalition is better than Obama’s, Obama’s is better than Hillary’s — no. We have a big party, Paul.” And: “Just don’t divide me and tell me I cannot stand in Hillary’s camp because I’m black, and I can’t stand in Obama’s camp because I’m female. Because I’m both. . . . Don’t start with me, baby.” Finally: “It’s our party, Paul. Don’t say my party. It’s our party. Because it’s time that we bring the party back together, Paul.”

“So stop the divisions. Stop trying to split us into these groups…” — you’ve got to be kidding me. The Democratic Party is all about identity politics and so splitting people into groups is at the core of what the Democratic Party does.

It’s black vs. white, women vs. men, North vs. South, atheists vs. Christians, successful people vs. unsuccessful people, the poor vs. businesses, on and on and on. Heck, both of their candidates? Barack Obama wouldn’t be a contender is he wasn’t black and Hillary Clinton wouldn’t be a contender if she wasn’t a woman.

So, of course they’re dividing and splitting each other into groups; promoting envy, jealousy, and hatred between different groups of Americans is the bread and butter of the Democratic Party.
