[Ed. – One who’s an idiot like him?]
The emphasis on identity politics in the Democratic Party has resulted in a not-so-subtle vilifying of the dominant demographic in U.S. presidential history: The white male.
Even with two old, white men leading in the early polls in former Vice President Joe Biden and current Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, white male candidates still seem to feel obligated to speak in an almost apologetic way for their race and gender (looking at you, Beto).
This includes California Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell, who is running on a campaign mostly focused on gun control, and who is currently polling at approximately zero percent.
Swalwell was asked during an appearance on Vice News Tonight: “Why should another white guy be president?”
“Well, a white guy who doesn’t see other identities, or understand other experiences should not be president,” Swalwell replied. “I do. And where there would be gaps in my knowledge or my experience, I will pass the mic to people who do have that experience. I’ve also pledged that I would ask a woman to serve as vice president.”
