Conservative activist believes Democrats use hate to ignite their voter base


By Robert Hadley | Jun 6, 2018


Either conservative talk show host and author Larry Elder does a dead-on impression of Democratic U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) or the audience was in stitches for another reason during a public forum to discuss conservative issues and promote his latest book, “Dear Father, Dear Son: Two Lives… Eight Hours.”

Elder mimicked the former House speaker, imitating her response when being asked about the Democrats’ agenda if they take back the House in the upcoming mid-term election.

It’s mostly a non-verbal impression that has Elder waving his hands, mumbling and moaning before settling on the words: “Fairness, fairness, $15 minimum wage.”

“They got nothing,” he continued. “What unites them is their hostility toward Trump.”

Another unifying thread among Democrats, Elder said, is the common accusation that Republicans are racist.

“Well, that’s just their Playbook 101,” he explained. “They’re always going to do that. [U.S. Rep.] Maxine Waters [D-CA] called the ‘good’ Bush, George Herbert Walker Bush, a racist.”

Rather than the racist label being a mere insult, Elder suggested its use is strategic.

“They’ve got to get, especially blacks, angry enough to think these guys are so bad,” he said. “Never mind how bad the economy is, never mind they won’t give us any option in schools, never mind the rising crime. These guys are so racist, and it’s all about social justice… [T]hat’s all they have.”

The forum, presented in a video posted on May 20 on YouTube, was mediated by Chicago’s Morning Answer host Dan Proft, a principal in Local Government Information Services, which owns this publication.
