Trump Puts Kaepernick and the left in a Box

[cap­tion id=“attachment_94866” align=“aligncenter” width=“775”] Chicago’s South Side last autumn[/caption]

The com­pletely unex­pected invi­ta­tion to Colin Kaeper­nick to join Kanye West at the White House as part of a sum­mit on race is the worst news the left has seen yet.

Noth­ing is more likely to cause trou­ble for Democ­rats than this.

For the far left, cur­rently ener­gized to vote, par­tic­u­lar the Bernie left, that has accepted the idea of Trump as com­pletely unac­cept­able and any move to “nor­mal­ize” him as ille­git­i­mate Kaeper­nick turn­ing up will be seen as a betrayal. We can expect attacks on him sim­i­lar to what hap­pened with Kanye, how­ever because the media has pushed Kaeper­nick for­ward as a hero and chunks of the black com­mu­nity has accepted that idea such an attack can’t help but turn off that same black com­mu­nity at a time when the Democ­rats need every sin­gle vote.

How­ever the risks of not attack­ing are even higher. if by rec­on­cil­i­a­tion Trump can siphon even a small amount of the Black vote away from the left their elec­toral prospects for the White House in 2020 become zero, par­tic­u­larly if those same black Democ­rats who have looked the other way when the fix has been in on counts in var­i­ous urban loca­tion decided they’d like to make sure the vote is hon­est and their Trump votes count.

Of course if Kaeper­nick doesn’t bother to turn up then you ener­gize the right at the polls which is the one thing that the left doesn’t want and sud­denly every Demo­c­rat run­ning in a red state has to com­ment on this in a way that either depresses the left (it’s wrong that he didn’t show up) or excites the right (Kaeper­nick is a hero for not show­ing up). Plus it goes with­out say­ing that if Kaeper­nick doesn’t show when invited then he can kiss his slight chance of get­ting signed goodbye.

That Trump might accom­plish what the GOP has dreamed of for decades con­cern­ing Black Amer­ica is almost as astound­ing as the fact that some in the GOP will never for­give him for get­ting done what they couldn’t. I must con­fess I never imag­ined it when I voted for him.

Chicago’s South Side last autumn

The completely unexpected invitation to Colin Kaepernick to join Kanye West at the White House as part of a summit on race is the worst news the left has seen yet.

Nothing is more likely to cause trouble for Democrats than this.

For the far left, currently energized to vote, particular the Bernie left, that has accepted the idea of Trump as completely unacceptable and any move to “normalize” him as illegitimate Kaepernick turning up will be seen as a betrayal. We can expect attacks on him similar to what happened with Kanye, however because the media has pushed Kaepernick forward as a hero and chunks of the black community has accepted that idea such an attack can’t help but turn off that same black community at a time when the Democrats need every single vote.

However the risks of not attacking are even higher. if by reconciliation Trump can siphon even a small amount of the Black vote away from the left their electoral prospects for the White House in 2020 become zero, particularly if those same black Democrats who have looked the other way when the fix has been in on counts in various urban location decided they’d like to make sure the vote is honest and their Trump votes count.

Of course if Kaepernick doesn’t bother to turn up then you energize the right at the polls which is the one thing that the left doesn’t want and suddenly every Democrat running in a red state has to comment on this in a way that either depresses the left (it’s wrong that he didn’t show up) or excites the right (Kaepernick is a hero for not showing up).  Plus it goes without saying that if Kaepernick doesn’t show when invited then he can kiss his slight chance of getting signed goodbye.

That Trump might accomplish what the GOP has dreamed of for decades concerning Black America is almost as astounding as the fact that some in the GOP will never forgive him for getting done what they couldn’t.  I must confess I never imagined it when I voted for him.
