Klobuchar Tries to Be the Hero by Bowing Out

Klobuchar Tries to Be the Hero by Bowing Out

As racial and political division continue to try to break our nation, it’s become increasingly apparent that something has to give. And for Minnesota Senator and failed Democratic presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar, that means her increased political career. She announced on Thursday that she would no longer be seeking the title of second-in-command as Joe Bidens’ vice president.

Nearly from the emergence of Biden as the assumed nominee for the Democrat Party, the former vice president announced that whoever he chose to be his VP would be a woman, creating contrast and diversity within the White House. And for nearly as long, Klobuchar has been considered as one such woman, given her equally middle-of-the-road stance on policies and her ability to win over at least some of the Midwest.

However, upon bowing out of the race for Biden’s running mate, she told the nation that she believes the best for both her party and the US right now is to not only have a woman VP but one that is “of color,” as she told MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell.

She told the nation, “After what I’ve seen in my state, what I’ve seen across the country, this is a historic moment. And America must seize on this moment. And I truly believe, as I actually told the vice president (Biden) last night when I called him, that I think this is a moment to put a woman of color on that ticket.”

She went on to say that “there are so many incredibly qualified women, but if you want to heal this nation now – my party, yes, but this nation – that’s sure a hell of a way to do it.”

And while I have to agree that having a woman of color standing next to dementia ridden old white guy would most definitely make a statement about diversity and acceptance, we all know it would really only be about the votes the party could get.

As of right now, the Democratic party is at a crossroads. Biden is their only shot at the White House right now, but as he has already made clear by his constant gaffes, it will be his VP who is actually running things. And due to some of those blunders, Biden’s favorability among both women and blacks has dwindled somewhat. Choosing someone from both demographics would seem to solve these issues.

Furthermore, the Democrats would love to continue to push the narrative that only their party would so boldly make history in this way.

However, they fail to remember that the first person “of color” to hold the title of VP was, in fact, a Republican.

In 1929, with the election of Herbert Hoover as president, Charles Curtis took the second-in-command position. It was noted at the time that he was the first person to achieve the title “with acknowledged non-European ancestry.” Curtis was “three-eighths Caw Indian and 100 percent American,” as he liked to say, according to the Washington Examiner.

Additionally, as the outlet pointed out, the first three black Senators were all Republicans, which, when you think about it, only makes sense seeing as how the GOP was the party that ended slavery.

But that’s not what the left wants you to remember. Instead, they will try to point out that since the 1964 Civil Rights Act, racists and segregationists have been Republican, giving them control of the South.

However, this makes little sense, considering that some of the largest black populations reside in the Southern United States, and these are thought to be predominantly Democratic strongholds.

As former political science professor from Vanderbilt University Dr. Carol Swain reports, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 did, in fact, change things for the two political parties and the South. But it wasn’t because of racism. It was actually the lack thereof.

As she described in a 2017 video to PragerU, “the South itself has changed.” And she continued, “The racism that once defined it doesn’t anymore.” Therefore, it focuses on the values it holds dear, and, as it turns out, those “are conservative ones: pro-life, pro-gun and pro-small government.”

Swain rightly surmises, “the myth of the Southern strategy is just the Democrats’ excuse for losing the South and yet another way to smear Republicans with the label ‘racist.’”

But as history clearly proves, Republicans put the first person “of color” into office, both in the White House and the Senate. So tell me again how they are racist?

  1. I think it’s pretty sad that the democrats are picking a person for their color and gender instead of their qualifications and ability to run the country. This is exactly why America is so messed up. Thank God we have President Trump, so has already started putting America back together. The Democrats don’t have to worry about a running mate because President Trump is going to win the 2020 election. Many people are seeing the evil and deceit of the Democratic party and we are sick and tired of all of the Democrats.

    1. How does Klobuchar give up or loose something she never had in the first place? This frump cannot get out of her own way – maybe she should give up something she has – a little weight.

  2. Was going to leave post, but Darla stated my same sentiments.
    I don’t know how this country became so polarized. No matter the political party, people were able to find common ground. Dividing Americans racially is not the answer. We need to take a step back and breathe before it’s too late. Socialism is just around the corner .

  3. What a sanctimonious phony. She ‘bowed‘ out because she knows the dimwit party wIll be nominating a black vp….she ‘sacrificed’ her desire to be vp, because the dimwits don’t WANT her as vp. There isn’t one area of integrity these parasites can’t diminish. Amazing.

  4. Sen. Klobuchar would make great Attorney General. I think she could take charge of that department and clear out the corrupt AG and his gang.

  5. The one thing Klobuchar and Harris have in common, is their both taking money to pay for their being so Corrupt!

    But Klobuchar is the one who can brag about eating a salad with a comb!

    Has Klobuchar forgotten this country had a Black President for 8 years, and now it’s coming out how Corrupt he was, and the charges includes Treason, which he attempted in an effort to stop Donald Trump!
