“A few moments ago, I called secretary Handel, I commended her on a hard-fought race and on her victory this evening,” Ossoff told the crowd. “Let me address you, the more than 12,000 of you who, as darkness has crept across this planet, have provided a beacon of hope for people here in Georgia, for people across the country and for people around the world…and it’s had nothing to do with me, it never has. It’s about you, it’s about an extraordinary community at an extraordinary moment in history.”
Darkness. As in, America electing Donald Trump. That’s the left’s definition of darkness. Not like, ISIS terrorists blowing up innocent people. Or North Korea murdering people and threatening nuclear war. Nah. And because Georgia’s 6th didn’t elect Ossoff, it signifies that many of us have *gulp* succumbed to the darkness.
“(We had the) first opportunity to make a statement about values that we can still unite people,” Ossoff said. “At a time when politics have been dominated by fear and hatred and scapegoating and division, this community stood up, women in this community stood up, and you picked this campaign up and you picked me up and you picked Alisha up and you carried us on your shoulders and showed the world that in places where nobody thought it was even possible to fight, we could fight. We showed them what courage and kindness and humility are capable of.”
Actually, that community didn’t pick him or his campaign up. Democratic mega donors did though. They threw millions his way, and he STILL lost.
“This is not the outcome any of us were hoping for, but this is the beginning of something much bigger for us,” Ossoff added.
Is it though? Because last time I checked, Democrats were 0-4 in special elections.
Gee, I can’t imagine why he lost!
