She’s flailing in the polls, her New Age spirituality has made her the most meme-worthy Democrat on the debate stages, and she doesn’t seem to have a prayer of winning the nomination. But Marianne Williamson claims that Democrats are running scared of her insurgent campaign, which has, to be fair, garnered more coverage than many other, more established competitors.
In an interview with the Daily Mail this week, Williamson said that there were “powerful forces” on the left desperate to wreck her campaign and keep her off the next Democratic debate stage.
As far as forces on the left go, Williamson is right about one thing: She has been attacked and vilified by liberal pundits more than almost anyone else in contention for the nomination. Just in the past month, we’ve seen left-wing bloggers assail the self-help guru for peddling a philosophy that puts the individual above the group, a person’s triumphant inner self over their life circumstances. This is, of course, a cardinal sin for any Democrat, who must always see people as being victims of SOCIETY and the many injustices therein. For a self-help author to suggest that people can overcome those circumstances…well, that just doesn’t get it. It’s far better to blame the white man.
Of course, since starting her campaign, Williamson has done plenty of that as well.
Nevertheless, Williamson says that criticism of her ideas is part of a “well-strategized effort to smear me.”
“There’s no doubt about that,” she told the Mail. “It’s very frustrating because I like to think on the left we don’t do things like that. [Editor’s note: HA!] So it’s been a bit of a wake-up call. But apparently there’s some very powerful forces that want to make sure I’m not in that third debate so I must be doing something right if they’ve worked so hard to create that.”
Once again: HA!
The left, of course, does nothing BUT eat their own. If you don’t have the right opinion as a black man or as a woman or as a New Age spirituality teacher, you will be devoured by their groupthink mob. They’ve turned on Bill Maher, they’ve turned on Sam Harris, they’ve turned on Joe Biden, and of course they aren’t going to tolerate Marianne Williamson, who, while she may be for reparations, doesn’t necessarily think that everyone’s problems are perpetuated by The Man.
To the left, there is only one acceptable way to view minorities – be they African-Americans, women, gays, or fat people: They are victims of the oppressors. If you’re not carrying the torch for that philosophy, you might as well be a Nazi.
