您如何将精英统治卖给99%的选民? 好吧,不要经营像希拉里·克林顿这样的人,希拉里·克林顿是个乏善可陈的竞选活动家,比路易威登的储藏室多出1%的行李。

很少有政治人物会看着你说“我为银行家工作……但我在乎你”并摆脱了。

奥巴马可以。 克林顿不能。 既然奥巴马已经宣布了,现在就寻找寻找转基因盒的转基因候选者,但他知道世界上的面包是在哪一边涂黄油。

我的赌注是卡马拉·哈里斯(Kamala Harris),他是交叉检查,全球化主义者友好,有吸引力的候选人,现在正在为总统竞选做准备。 我想,迟早要早。

根据伊曼纽尔·马克龙(Emmanuel Macron)的判断,即使简历很小,也可以将一个英俊的年轻人转变为总统。 最好的办法是,在他们年轻又新鲜的时候,以及在他们不得不积累过多的1%住房过往记录之前,让他们在选民面前脱颖而出。

那是奥巴马的教训。 他来自任何地方,出任总统。 希拉里来自某个地方,却无处可去。

民主党人做共和党人曾经做过的事,这是美国政治发展过程中的一个有趣的数据点:找到一位具有超凡魅力的前锋,他又是一个制表民俗主义者,以产生选举群众对精英主义政策的呼吁。

我猜想,关键的任务是如何将感知框架从“ 99%诉1%”转换为“退化的lumpen诉美国的精髓”,而我猜想这是民主党战略家为解决这一问题付出的巨大努力。

民主党的自由主义相当依靠精英制的技术专家制模式,使精英统治者更容易被吞噬:开明的选民认可最好和最聪明的人,并把钥匙交给了美国移动公司。

那些不投票支持Demlib团队的人都是*绝望的*开明的信息选民,偏执者,哦,这是个好词吗? 怎么样……可悲的东西!

那么我们应该怎么称呼Demlibs? 智者? 醒了吗? 怎么样...可爱小子们?

这种框框让Demlibs躲开了他们是一个委婉的政治人物的抨击,他们大饱口福是全球化主义者的亿万富翁摆在他们的口鼻部前的营养之作。 或者,对于那些倾向于马克思主义的批评家来说,他们是在呼吁资产阶级为了资本主义和保护而吸纳资产阶级。

不过,在政治上或在阶级利益范围内席卷而来的问题确实提出了一些尴尬的问题!

Dems几乎可以说是这样,我们在这里是在吸收数十亿美元的竞选资金并促进全球化的中间派政策,因为……

…因为…

嗯,因为我们非常关心人类,所以我们不愿意这样做!

我们不是阶级,野心或兴趣的生物!

一定是这样! 高贵的义务!

对于政治运动而言,这是必不可少的部分,否则可能会令人信服地描绘为1%的工具。

与年轻,性感和精明的候选人一起销售时比较容易。

奥巴马作为总统很好地扮演了这个角色,但在我看来,从那时起就没有那么好,整个过程是用反俄罗斯的魂器破坏特朗普总统职位,然后签署了价值 60 万美元的图书交易,并肩负起以 400,000 万美元的演出与克林顿夫妇进行公开演讲,并为此帮助“希拉里 a la Francais”中间派埃马纽埃尔马克龙的总统竞选。

要点:让漂亮的人在选民面前变得丑陋。

未来属于年轻人!

    Many good points made by the author. However, I disagree with his prediction of Kamala Harris as the next Democratic candidate. They will probably revert to a white male, to try and claw back some of the deplorable votes.

    • 回复: @anonymous
  2. I’ve been predicting Kamala Harris since Hillary tanked. Elizabeth Warren will be about 71 in 2020. Kamala Harris will be only in her late 50s and likely running against a 74-year old Donald Trump who seems to be doing everything he can to alienate his “deplorable” base. The only downsides that I see to a Harris candidacy are geographical–California is already in the Democratic tank and racial–can she at least partially energize blacks?

  3. Smitty 说:

    Kamala Harris has an Achilles heel, actually she can be removed and criminally prosecuted for a rainbow of crimes she committed while CA AG and I’m sure her crimes have extended to her federal office.

    “It’s an easier line to sell with a young, sexy, and savvy candidate.”

    Peter, you may be on to a variant of the “Chicks up front!” cry of the protestors at the 1968 Democrat National Convention. Back then it was to gain special public sympathy by baiting the police into clobbering young women on television.

    I actually haven’t thought much about the prospect of politically ambitious women who are skilled enough and conniving enough to recognize that good looks alone contain at least the possibility of foiling a substantive political competitor. I’m thinking Van Gordon Sauter and Roger Ailes types guiding the Democrats into explicitly sexing up their candidate roster as cover for corporate governance. I’m also thinking, very early in the morning, how Gloria Steinem gave the weirder elements of feminism a voice that frumpy women and hate-filled lesbians couldn’t.

    Yeah, if I were approached by the Dems about regaining electoral success, I’d be thinking: “Hot, unknown babes with law degrees.”

    In the words of Mohamed Ali, “He too ugly to be champion”. Star quality is what you are talking about, that magical presence factor. It doesn’t have to be all looks either, Tom Waits has it, it’s more “cool” than anything, you know it when you see it.

  6. Anonymous [AKA "California Dreaming"] 说:

    So, Mr. Lee’s area of expertise is ‘China’. He writes a blog called “China Matters”.

    And yet, when the world flashpoint in N. Korea is threatening to explode, Mr. Lee now seems determined to write about anything other than is area of expertise. I’d find it much more useful if he’d provide some expert commentary on China-N.Korea rather than talking about the Dalai Lama and an obscure American Senator now filling B.Boxer’s old fake-liberal but really pro-corporate Dem role.

    The big problem with the Dems is that they have nothing to sell. They can’t run on what they really want to do, which is more war, more rule by bankers, give corporations everthing they want as long as they pay/bribe enough to get it, more police abuses, more spying on Americans, etc, etc, etc.

    So, yes, they might go for a pretty face. But it won’t get them anywhere. They got nothing. Only Bernie had even a hint of something to sell. And that worked pretty well even coming from an old geezer who wasn’t exactly photogenic, with a platform that was a hollow, luke-warm, shallow and incomplete message of just a little change and just a little hope.

    Thus, the Dems mainly need to come up with a platform that’s actually popular. Which would mean kicking away all their 1% donors and backers and actuallly giving the people something they want. Which doesn’t seem like its going to happen anytime soon. We’ve consistently seen since the election that the 1% have a firm hold on the Democrats short-hairs and aren’t going to let go.

    Meanwhile, I wish Mr. Lee would get back to covering his beat before it all explodes in a nuclear war that ends life on earth as we freeze and starve in a nuclear winter.

    @JackOH

    Anchor people and reporters used to often be average looking.

    Everybody on TV now looks like invaders from Planet Gorgeous.

    I don’t always notice it watching American TV, but one of the things I find most enjoyable about BBC programming is that many of its actors and even stars look like actual human beings. It’s always startling when a normal person wallks out.

    Fox had a lot to do with this. Their female commentariat were all gorgeous. Many also very breight and articulate, but it’s pretty clear that looks is a prerequisite.

    Is America ready for a Hindu President?

    @Numinous

    “Is America ready for a Hindu President?” Dunno: it’s her Mum who’s the Hindu. The daughter is some variety of Christian.

    Mind you, you ought to be ready for a Hindu if a good enough one comes along. A country that subjected itself to the sequence Slick Willie, W, O, and Donald J Hillary can’t afford to turn its nose up at a good candidate on religious grounds.

    Though perhaps you did turn your nose up at Romney on religious grounds.

  12. After the crash and a couple years of foraging for insects and berries no American will admit to ever being a Democrat or a Republican. A bit of hind sight will reveal the truth. D’s and R’s ruined the country.

  13. Z-man 说:

    That’s it Trump-Gabbard in 2020!!! Dump Pence and make it a fusion ticket! She won’t go for it and neither would the orange man but it’s nice to dream and Trump would win in a landslide!

  14. I’d rather have Rand Paul as VP and Gabbard at Sec State. Well, a guy can dream.

  15. JackOH 说:
    @Logan

    Yeah, agree. You can make book that at least one major Democrat consultant is thinking that a successful 2020 contender against President Trump will be a good-looking woman with a thin political resume and none of the marital and legal baggage of Hillary. The kicker, of course, will be that Madame X will represent the same corporate-global interests as Hillary would have. In other words, that consultant will tell the Democrat leadership to stick with the same old-same old identity politics, and get a new messenger for it.

  16. Not Raul 说:
    @reiner Tor

    I’m not sure that’s much of a problem. Obama is light-skinned, too.

    A bigger problem might be that she isn’t a biological parent. The last President not to have kids was Harding.

  17. @Diversity Heretic

    if she is the answer dnc comes up with, she will not win. we will get another 4 years of trump.

  18. At times, I feel as if I’m not 100 percent certain I wouldn’t prefer to be executed by firing squad, as opposed to living in the USA at a time when Willie Brown’s ex-girlfriend is the presiding officer of the Federal government. A man can only stomach so much. Personally, I would be disinclined to ever vote for a woman for President, and certainly not a very pretty woman who’s been pampered her whole life. This is the worst idea ever, but on the plus side of the ledger, I just can’t see her beating Trump.

  19. Kiza 说:
    @Anonymous

    You obviously have not been following Prof Lee’s writings, but you are a US person so you must have a (worthless) opinion about everything. No wonder US is already an Idiocracy, which you all have been discussing here: Kamala Harris as President Camacho.

  20. Numinous 说:
    @dearieme

    Wikipedia says her religion is Hinduism.

    I’m a Hindu Indian. (Though practically speaking, I’m an atheist.)

    Had I been American and allowed to vote in the 2012 Presidential election, I’d have gone for Obama, purely on the grounds that Romney was promising more of the execrable neocon foreign policy. If anything, Romney’s religion would have been a plus in his favor as far as I was concerned. I lived on the West Coast for many years during the past decade (and traveled throughout the American West), and found Mormons to be some of the nicest, most level-headed, people around.

  21. @dearieme

    Will Tulsi Gabbard be too young?

    She’s certainly pretty enough, but the Establishment doesn’t want her. She has too many sensible views.

  22. Dave337 说:

    From what I’ve read Harris used Brown as much as he used her which may (or may not) offend feminists voters. Another Californian waiting in the wings is Gavin Newsom who apparently appeals to both genders.

  23. Ram 说:

    How long would it be before the US becomes like Czarist Russia – a feudal society with serfs serving their handful of Pharisaic overloads.

    Age 52 is hardly the youth brigade coming up even for these times. The 1% needs to have the CIA locate some 16 yr olds who seem like they could be brought along and have their career paths smoothed over surreptitiously as they’re brainwashed and have various scripts drilled into their heads. They need to create candidates rather than merely trying to mold already existing ones. This’ll be the way of the future in order to continue deceiving the masses.

    It’s been more obvious since (Bill) Clinton’s unexpected breakthrough, but the Democrats have been gravitating toward the Eva Peron beautiful-people candidates a long time. Upper-class “witty” flake Adlai Stevenson was the prototype of this urban-elite mascot. What you say is true, though– in most democracies it’s the right-of-center party that leans on this gimmicky tactic. By contrast the United Demographic-States of Consumer-researchmerica led the way in making racial minorities hip and exotic, which has been followed by Canada and Blairite Britain, eventually to shape the ideology of the E.U. in the new century.

    Uh, what do you think they’ve done with every president, except it was more like 6 than 16.

  29. artichoke 说:

    I predict Chris Murphy, junior senator from Connecticut. Pretty good looking as far as I can tell, talks smoothly, came from nowhere — he’s got some force behind him. I don’t even think he did time in the House. Swoosh, straight into the Senate.

    Obama’s returned the rent-a-kids and apparently the wife too. Don’t see them together any more.

    @artichoke

    Per his wiki, in the House 2007-2013: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Murphy_(Connecticut_politician)

    But thanks for the pointer. I did not know about him. Any reason to believe he would run anytime soon given his youth?

  32. anonymous • 免责声明 说:
    @Escher

    White male? Maybe. Then again there’s always Corey Booker who passes the NYT litmus test, meaning a person of color and conjectural gender along with the requisite educational credentials (Stanford, Yale Law, blah blah blah).
