The Democratic Party is learning that if it wants to win elections, capturing the majority might be important.
After decades of trying to woo the minority vote — and incessantly bashing white Americans and white male Americans in particular — the party is calling for a plan to win over white voters — particularly Southerners.
A Democratic National Committee task force used a meeting Saturday to drum up support for the “National Narrative Project,” Time Magazine reported.
“This morning, we’re going to hear some tough love, and frankly, we need to hear it,” committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said.
“In order to win elections, the Democratic Party must reclaim voters that we’ve lost, including white Southern voters,” the report said.
Republican National Committee spokesman Michael Short was skeptical of the plan.
“The first step toward fixing a problem is admitting that you have one, but it’s clear the DNC isn’t willing to come to terms with why their party lost in historic fashion last November,” Short said in a statement, according to Time.
“The reality is their divisive message doesn’t resonate and their liberal policies don’t work. And after years of neglect from President Obama, his chosen heir Hillary Clinton will be inheriting a cash-strapped national party teetering on the edge of complete irrelevancy.”
The Twitterverse responded with mockery.
