Marianne sweeps the internet! ‘Dark psychic force’ talk helps most-searched candidate dominate debate

In a Tuesday night Democratic primary debate that promised more socialism, the elimination of private health insurance and open borders, Google Trends showed that Marianne Williamson was the most searched candidate throughout the night.

Which may be a statement about how people feel about the hard-left policies being pushed on stage… or a reflection on the American electorate.

A celebrity spiritual advisory, Williamson conjured up fanciful thoughts of a “dark psychic force” while talking about the Flint, Mich., water crisis — yes, Democrats are still talking about that.

Being a Democrat, she made her appeal for “environmental justice” all about race.

“I assure you I lived in Gross Point, what happened in Flint would not have happened in Gross Point, this is part of the dark underbelly of American society, the racism, the bigotry, and the entire conversation that we’re having here tonight,” Williamson said.


“If you think any of this wonkiness is going to deal with this dark psychic force of the collectivized hatred that this president is bringing up in this country, then I’m afraid that the Democrats are going to see some very dark days,” she continued.

“It’s bigger than Flint. It’s particularly people of color. It’s particularly people who do not have the money to fight back, and if the Democrats don’t start saying it, why would those people feel they’re there for us and if those people don’t feel it, they won’t vote for us and Donald Trump will win.”

Well, she is a psychic.

Either way, the crowd was entertained, as were those watching at home apparently.

In fact, you could even say Williamson was “dominating” in Google searches, as Daily Caller video reporter Anders Hagstrom tweeted:

Google Trends showed that Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., was the second-most searched name, followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

The other candidates taking the stage on the first of two nights included Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., Reps. John Delaney, D-Md., and Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and Beto O’Rourke.

With her feet firmly planted in the past, Williamson, who gives off a sorta hippy feel, is also down with reparations — the candidate sees it as “payment of a debt owed.”

“We need to recognize when it comes to the economic gap between blacks and whites in America, it does come from a great injustice that has never been dealt with. That great injustice has had to do with the fact that there was 250 years of slavery followed by another hundred years over domestic terrorism,” Williamson said.


She puts the price tag somewhere around $200-500 billion.

“I’ll tell you what makes you qualified, if you did the math of 40 acres and a mule, given there was 4 to 5 million slaves at the end of the civil war, and they were probably 40 acres and a mule for a family of four, if you did the math today it would be trillions of dollars, and anything less than a hundred billion dollars is an insult and 200 to 500 billion is politically feasible,” she said.

No details on who pays or how to determine who is eligible, of course.

The fact that Williamson was a focal point throughout the night prompted a reaction from Sen. Lindsey Graham, (R-S.C.,) who tweeted: “According to audience reaction….. [Williamson] won the debate. The only thing more bizarre than the candidates and their ideas was the audience who seemed to cheer at the most extreme ideas. Where do they find these people?”
