From my new column in Taki’s Magazine:
What’s the Matter With the Democrats?
December 22, 2021
It wasn’t a good autumn for Joe Biden and the Democrats. The president’s approval rating was down to a Trump-like 41 percent in an NPR poll released on Monday.
British prime minister Harold Macmillan supposedly replied to a question about what is the most important influence on his term of office with, “Events, dear boy, events.”
Biden isn’t that suave, but he would have some justification for blaming the Democrats’ tumble on a series of unfortunate events. But much of the ruling party’s growing unpopularity stems from inevitable outgrowths of their fundamental 21st-century political strategy of exacerbating divisiveness in the name of diversity.
And Democrats alienated Hispanics and, increasingly, Asians by anointing blacks as their moral leaders and deciding that black interests trump all others.

As I may have mentioned, I need to raise enough money during this December iSteve fundraiser to allow me to get cataract surgery on my eyes. I don’t do much other than trawl through the internet looking for Content for you, although a reader promises to talk his dad into inviting me to play Los Angeles Country Club, but my 43″ monitor is the biggest I can fit in my closet, so I really need better eyesight to keep doing what I’m doing.
