In an interview this morning former conservative and current Democrat shill Jennifer Rubin made the absurd claim that today’s Democrat party is a “centrist” party and the GOP is “extreme.”
Rubin claims that “when you look at a lot of the recent polling, Pew, Gallup, what you see is that a majority of the party wants the party to be more centrist. If you look at Republicans, they want it to be more conservatives. So if you want a party that is moving closer to the center or whose voters say they want to be closer to center, that would be the Democrats.
What is clear is that Jennifer Rubin knows exactly who is paying her bills these days, and is toeing the line expected of her. You have to be living in a bubble, or a complete moron, to think Democrats, who just voted for infanticide, are moderate or centrist.
Watch the whole thing:
BRZEZINSKI: “Jennifer Rubin, another one of your pieces yesterday was on how Democratic voters aren’t where a lot of Democratic candidates are. Explain that and also how important is it to Democratic voters that the candidate can beat Trump?”
RUBIN: “It’s very important. Over and over again they say beating Trump is more important than having a candidate who aligns with their views perfectly or even mostly.
Is the Democrat Party a ‘centrist’ party?
I think what we have gotten in the habit of doing is focusing on the loudest, most exciting voices in the Democratic Party these days, people like AOC, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren who are quite Progressive.
But in fact, when you look at results in 2016, what Democrats did is they chose moderate Democrats in those primaries and it was those moderate Democrats who went on to win and ultimately deliver a House majority to the Democrats.
There wasn’t a single Bernie-endorsed candidate who actually flipped a Republican-held seat. There were a slew of Democrats who were from the moderate faction of the party that did that. When you look at a lot of the recent polling, Pew, Gallup, what you see is that a majority of the party wants the party to be more centrist.
If you look at Republicans, they want it to be more conservatives. So if you want a party that is moving closer to the center or whose voters say they want to be closer to center, that would be the Democrats.
So what you have now is you have a whole slew of quite Progressive candidates and you don’t have very many candidates, you have Amy Klobuchar, maybe you’ll have Joe Biden appealing to that very large swath of Democrats who consider themselves to be moderate and really want to win this election.”
