It should be simple. Attack the ideas and officials, not the people. Yet the left cannot hide their disdain for half of the country that disagrees with them. Most recently, Congressman Hank Johnson, who couldn’t let his ridiculous comments about Donald Trump go without also savaging the people who voted for him. Johnson’s colleague in the House, Representative Dan Crenshaw, ain’t got time for that.

AOC isn’t the only new congressperson shaking things up. Crenshaw is on a roll when it comes to calmly dissecting his colleagues.
His sentiment should be common sense. Back when I was one of the hated political consultants, there were two important things I learned about voters: first, you have no control over what voters care about on any given day. Secondly, if you are blaming or attacking voters, for anything, you should call it quits because you’ve already lost.
Leftists like Johnson don’t seem to get that. Or, they buy too much into “demographics are destiny” and think rhetoric like Johnson’s is defensible because Trump supporters will “die off” soon. This rhetoric from the same idiot who said Guam is going to tip over because too many people live there. So Johnson’s ability to form rational thoughts is questionable.
Keep up the pushback, Dan Crenshaw!
