Democrat Presidential candidates have all made insane policy proposals or statements that will make you cringe.
But one candidate just made a huge mistake.
And now this candidate’s campaign and career are over after the awful things he said about white men.
The Democrat field for president has a diverse group of candidates.
At the same time, the Left is becoming increasingly hostile toward white men.
This puts candidates such as Rep. Eric Swalwell in a difficult position to find support in the primaries.
Which is why he decided to throw all white men under the bus in this interview with VICE.
Swalwell told VICE that white men can’t possibly relate to others of a different background and that he would let others lead when he had “knowledge gaps.”
The Daily Caller reports:
Former Republican South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy mocked Democratic California Rep. Eric Swalwell for acknowledging his alleged flaws in being “a white guy,” during an appearance on Martha MacCallum’s show Tuesday night.
Swalwell acknowledged during a Monday interview with Vice News that, as a white man, he should promote the voices of minorities….
Swalwell said in the interview, “A white guy who doesn’t see other identities or understand other experiences should not be president.”
“I do,” Swalwell continued. “And where there would be gaps in my knowledge or my experience, I will pass the mic to people who do have that experience.”
The most recent Morning Consult poll, collected from May 13 to May 19, 2019, revealed that Swalwell received less than one percent. The poll interviewed 15,342 registered voters.
Buying into the social justice warrior agenda may have just sunk his campaign and career.
The reality is that he must first visit states such as Iowa and New Hampshire with majority white Democrat primary voters.
And he just threw the vast majority of their voting populations under the bus for no good reason.
Swalwell’s campaign was likely dead on arrival anyway.
He has yet to break 1% in the polls and likely won’t appear on the debate stage.
Do you think Swalwell should just end his campaign now?
