(National Sentinel) A Little Advice: Democratic Sen. Chris Coons has a message for his increasingly fractured, angry, triggered party: Let’s move on from the rage and stop with the socialism already.
Coons, who represents Delaware, said in an interview too many in his party are moving way Left and in doing so alienating moderate voters who might otherwise stick with Democrats.
The Daily Caller reported:
“If we as a Democratic Party are going to move from a minority at every level that is dedicated to resistance, to a majority that is capable of governing, we have got to move from grievance to optimism,” Coons said in a speech on Thursday, according to US News and World Report.
“And we’ve got to abandon a politics of anxiety that is characterized by wild-eyed proposals and instead deliver ideas and practical solutions.”
Coons also warned that the growing Democratic push to abolish Immigration and Customs and Enforcement (ICE), which enforces the nation’s immigration laws, is counterproductive.
“Abolish ICE is too easily mocked as open borders and no law enforcement,” the senator warned.
“Instead of having something that makes a Twitter hashtag and gets you on Rachel Maddow and fires people up, we need to have something that fires people up and is a policy position we can actually defend.”
He noted that 40 percent of voters identify as moderate or independent and that the party could not afford to “abandon them.”
Guess what, Sen. Coons?
It already has. #WalkAway.
