Rep. Mazie Hirono: Democrats Are Just Too Smart To Connect With Voters

This clip should be run ad nauseum by the GOP and every Republican candidate from June 2020 through election day

Not elitist in the least

(Fox News) Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, on Tuesday told a conference that she heard one of the reasons that her party has a difficult time connecting with voters is because Democrats know so much, and have a tendency of appealing to voters’ minds instead of their hearts.

Hirono made the comment at a conference in Washington, D.C. She was asked by the moderator about ways Democrats could drive voter turnout.

“I wish I had the answer to that because one of the things that we, Democrats, have a really hard time is connecting to people’s hearts instead of [their heads],” Hirono said. “We’re really good at shoving out all the information that touch people here [pointing to her head] but not here [pointing to her heart].”

Hirono, 71, said Democrats need to stop speaking in a way that comes off as manipulative or strokes fear and resentment.

“But we have a really hard time doing that and one of the reasons– it was told to me at one of our retreats– was that we Democrats know so much, that is true. And we have kind of have to tell everyone how smart we are and so we have a tendency to be very left brain,” she continued.

Well, she is correct on one thing, in that Democrats are uber-manipulative and stoke fear and resentment. But, if she thinks that this type of elitist claptrap will help in an age where the average voter are demanding to be heard over the elites, she has another thing coming.

    Right here. This is the first in a billion one liners that the LEFT who now has power will have to defend in 2020.

    Additionally I’m calling it right now. Beto O’Rourke will be the Dem’s darling, Obama wannabe and their nominee to go against whomever is left standing after the Muelller Witch hunt is over.

  2. Jethro says:

    Now that the tRumpublicans have become victims, anything said by Dems will be used against them.

    Senator Hirono was criticizing her own party for ignoring the feelings of voters and only trying to appeal with facts and reason. The GOP has proven that appeals to fear, resentment and emotion works.

    • Mangoldielocks says:

      Your contention is that the left does not use fear, resentment and emotion in order to gain or regain power?

      Like the above poster said. The democrats will now have to defend their stupidity and In my opinion her saying the ELITES are TOO SMART for the common Black in the inner city is the classic example of Elitism run amuck in the Democratic party.

      She is certainly right. The Democrats told the rust Belt to FF off and so they voted for Trump. Considering how many lies the MSM runs against Trump daily its no wonder he is in a daily war with the press. GWB hid in the White House and let the PRESS destroy him. Trump fights back and the PRess is beside themselves.

      You hear that Chris Wallace of Fox News. Go FF yourself. You and your Buddy Cavuto and your elitist approach as you stare down your noses at us poor vagrants who occupy your space and breath your oxygen are just too stupid to understand whats good for us.

      So left and right and their elitist buddies will tell us what is best for us and when someone stands up relentlessly….like Trump you get stupid comments like Hirono from Hawaii. She proves how out of touch the left and even the right are with the common man.

        The press just needs to report the news. Not make it up. Not try to persuade us what is the news or the truth.

        1. China has started a Social Score for its citizens. Mind boggling. Look it up if you want a good Orwellian SCARE.
        2. The UN has started spraying the atmosphere with chemicals to reflect sunlight in a period in which the sunspot cycle is growing less and less and the earth is moving farther from the sun. Inverse square rule applies.
        3. The FBI invaded a protected Whistle Blower to take documents that were already given to the IG. No doubt this is about one thing. The IG gave the documents to the FBI and FBI now wants to make sure they have them all and then what happens. AHH sorry guys we can’t seem to find those documents. HRC. Is in the clear because of a deep state of UNELECTED thugs.
        4. A couple days ago every state in the nation had at least one temperature reading that was below ZERO. Global warming of course. It couldn’t be because of the approaching Grand Solar MINIMUM or greatly reduced sunspot cycles or the fact the earth is constantly moving away from the sun applying the inverse square rule.
        5. Europe is on the verge of Anarchy. Any bets George Soros is actively funding this? Nationalism is running rampant in the EU now.
        6. The UN is set to vote on Immigration as a human right which can force nations to take any immigrant no matter the reason into their nation because the UN says so. Hello Big Brother.

        on and on it goes. The world is burning and civilization is on the verge of collapse. I predicted this in 2003 when the internet started rolling and political activist blogs and websites started springing up by the 1000’s daily.

        No one can talk to anyone anymore. The world is fixing to burn and when food shortages start, the left wants to make sure all those who live on food growing Land HAVE NO GUNS.

        And working class whites are beginning to see that their votes for tRump is doing them more harm than good. He is not draining the swamp but refilling it. His tax cuts benefit the wealthy much more than the working classes. His economic “policy” is starting to harm the economy.

        GOPhers will always twist the words to their advantage because their policies attack the actual voters they rely on. When working class white people start putting their own needs ahead of the fear generated in them by GOPhers, the GOP will be in trouble. Abortion, immigration, guns drive the con voters who keep voting against their own interests.

        Just once, a Republican needs to deliver on the promise of making life better for the working classes.

        • formwiz says:

          Which is exactly what Trump is doing.

          And, as always, Jeffery projects like no one else.

          And working class whites are beginning to see that their votes for tRump is doing them more harm than good.

          And where exactly did we get this little bit of wisdom? Another revelation brought by one of the little voices?

    • formwiz says:

      No, we don’t do victim. We fight back.

      But does Jeffery have a problem with Conservatives doing what Lefties always do, even when the Lefties make up what’s been said?

      That’s the normal give and take of politics. Apparently, Jeffery can dish it out, but he can’t take it.

      • Jethro says:

        Actually we see a lot of whining by Con Men. tRump sets the standard for all of you tRumpitistas.

        • formwiz says:

          If we weren’t hitting you where you live, you wouldn’t be here whining about it.

          And the word would be Trumpistas.

  3. NITZAKHON says:

    Reminds me of a leftie blogger on whose blog I USED TO be able to comment – no longer – who all but sneered about how wonderfully educated they were.

  4. formwiz says:

    Uh, yeah, Mazie showed us all how smart she was at Brother Bret’s inquisition.

  5. Sabre22 says:

    Watch her question the former ICE director about why he was enforcing statements from president trump . He had to tell her that he was enforcing federal law NOT the president’s edicts it was hilarious.

  6. Jethro says:

    Well of course Dems know more than GOPhers. Climate change, economy, environment, and on and on. Much of what Cons believe to be true, is not. It’s belief.

    But Senator Hirono was criticizing her own party for “tell(ing) everyone how smart we are”.

    • formwiz says:

      Yeah, they know so much they lost the White House, Congress, most state houses, and can only get them back with vote fraud.

      • Jethro says:

        So far the only vote fraud was from that GOPher in NC. And of course tRump and his Russian handlers in 2016.

        And Mrs. Clinton received millions more votes than the Orange Nightmare. And House Dems received millions more votes than House GOPhers.

        • david7134 says:

          Jeff,
          Just keep believing that and all the other lies. We have a friend who was one of the heads of Sanders campaign and he related all the cheating and massive fraud and other games by the Dems. Your lack of knowledge is amazing.

        • formwiz says:

          He did what the Demos did in CA, and AFAIK charges have yet to be filed. Be a shame if all those ballot harvested Demos in Orange County lost their seats after it went through the courts.

          But the only vote fraud arrests I’ve heard have been the 7 Democrats in TX and the 9 Democrats in FL.

          The Beast may have received more votes, but the fraudulent ones don’t count and those 435 House races have nothing to do with aggregate totals.

          BTW, are we counting all the fake votes again? The tens of thousands in Broward County alone would knock the Demo’s vaunted totals into a cocked hat.

  7. StillAlive says:

    Amazing how the Troll takes over every thread. I wonder why the OP even bothers to post at all.

    Oh thats right. Thats what Trolls do. Take over every thread and make the rest of you lose your minds.

  8. formwiz says:

    Maybe tRump can send Kris K. Kobach to CA to straighten it all out.

    Maybe SCUS will rule it unconstitutional. Especially since Notorious is on her way out.

    Do you really believe that tRump had more votes nationally than Mrs. Clinton?

    Do you really believe that global warming is a commie hoax?

    What other “outside the mainstream” beliefs do you have?

    We have proof.

    Of course, we have brains that work independently.

    Whose mainstream? Yours?

    The fact is that in-person voter fraud is not a big problem.

    Whose “fact”?

    When Democrat officials brag about how busing people from polling place to polling place, in and out of state, is what they do all the time and Democrat officials are caught voting multiple times, sounds like a big problem to me.

    But thanks at least for saying vote fraud by forgery or theft is a big problem.

    One would think that if you can’t connect with the voters you’re too dumb, not too smart. Example A- Mazie Hirono
