‘They won’t change’: Victor Davis Hanson says Dems won’t learn anything from recent losses

Will Democrats reverse course on their progressive agenda after this week’s crushing election losses in Virginia and elsewhere? One conservative historian isn’t convinced.

According to the Daily Caller, Victor Davis Hanson told journalist Megyn Kelly on her Thursday podcast that despite the crushing defeats for Dems in the first election since President Joe Biden took office, “they won’t change.”

They’ll keep pushing the “COVID threat” and stoking “racial tensions,” Hanson said, according to the Daily Caller.

“Crazy policies”

Speaking Thursday, Kelly had asked Hanson whether Democrats will decide to “relax” their “crazy policies” by the time the 2022 midterms roll around.

She suggested that if they don’t, they will “pay for it,” as was demonstrated this week in states including Virginia and New Jersey.

“I do think that people will punish the Democrats if they don’t reverse some of this going forward,” Hanson said, according to the Daily Caller. But that doesn’t mean those on the left are willing to take a step in the other direction.

“Polarized, chaotic”

According to Hanson, in Democrats’ “way of thinking, two things got them elected” — and they aren’t “going to give up” on them any time soon.

“[The Democrats] said and what they feel worked for them was the demonstrations, riots, and chaos after George Floyd that empowered critical race theory…into the mainstream,” Hanson said, according to the Daily Caller. “So they are never going to give up on that.”

The conservative pundit continued:

[Amid] the COVID crisis…there was 102 million absentee or early votes that were not cast on election day and they feel that worked out for them.

“In their mind,” Hanson added, “the longer you have the COVID threat and the longer you have racial tensions and critical race theory the more polarized, chaotic…and anarchy, the more there’s a need and people will react in the way they don’t politically and that favors them.”

He’s right

Hanson has already been proven right. This week, the Biden administration followed through with its promise to mandate coronavirus vaccines at large companies. And leftists are already trying to blame this week’s election defeats on racism. Will they ever learn?

Don’t hold your breath.
