House minority leader Kevin McCarthy has a message for Democrats. It’s only a few words, but it says a ton about the fundamental issue that Americans will be faced with as they prepare to go to the polls in a few months.
Dear Democrats: You cannot save America if you don’t even believe in her.
— Kevin McCarthy (@GOPLeader) July 5, 2020
Elections are about the future. If Democrats decide to campaign on disdain for what America stands for, what does it say about the kind of future they want?
Good point. https://t.co/ORpxDOeJSF

Predictably, some on the Left helped prove McCarthy’s point.
This guy probably doesn't even believe what he says, he just acts like a mini-Trump so he can take away your health care and give big corporations tax cuts. Vote them all out. https://t.co/69OR8ZL5U9

You sir have a lot of nerve. We love this country. Why the hell do you think we are so upset? Idiot. https://t.co/yc9XT7dtl3

If you can’t see me, you can’t represent me. If you can’t hear me, you can’t understand me. #Kevin, look at me. Listen to us. Respect everyone, even if we disagree. Stop the hate.
America deserves better and we just have to prove it this Fall. https://t.co/j913Y1iffb

When you reduce the sociocultural progress of a country to belief in a mytholigised nationalism, you dont understand the world.
Please grow up. https://t.co/wKzyOo5BD7

This kind of comment is disgusting. I might add—though we’ve become far too used to it—it’s also the hallmark of character disorders. I absolutely believe in our country. Neither you nor your thought-disordered leader get to say that people who disagree with you aren’t American. https://t.co/uZDTsiWevK

"You cannot save America if you don't even" stand up to the President and for the rule of law. So… https://t.co/A3AocZFWU5

Weird. It seems like the only party that believes in striving for a more perfect union is the Democratic Party. https://t.co/vTVnzIKDwM

Eventually, Democrats are going to realize this wasn’t such a great strategy.
