Will Rogers on “Democrats and the Denounce Bounce”

What the Democratic party has always needed is some smart, broadminded man, whose business it is to inform other Democrats “what to denounce and what not to denounce.” They are where they are today by picking on the wrong things. BEVERLY HILLS, Cal., May 13, 1930Those poor Democrats, along with the mainstream media, just can’t seem to denounce anything these days without making a mess of it. It looks like they haven’t changed since Will Rogers published this quote in 1930!

Whoever is advising them, doesn’t know the difference between gasoline and water when it comes to putting out a fire. The more Democrats try to denounce former presidents, governors, talk show hosts, and tea party movements, the stronger they get.

Trying to denounce “right-wing” rhetoric for the actions of a homicidal maniac is about as low as it gets, especially considering the inflammatory speech often used by members of their own party.

The lack of credibility is showing up at the ballot box, in newspaper circulation and in nationwide polls. Let them go ahead and keep denouncing. As Will Rogers said: “They are where they are today by picking on the wrong things.”

I apologize for the quality of the image, but this is exactly what the 1920s photo looked like when I scanned it.
