Rep. Gutiérrez vs. Real America?

Here’s a video someone brought to my attention about a month ago, and by someone I mean a butt-ton of liberals in my social media news feeds! (Fact: conservatives don’t share Occupy Democrats any more than progressives share Louder With Crowder.) It’s of Rep. Luis Vicente Gutiérrez (D-IL) during the House Judiciary Committee hearing on Planned Parenthood. To date, the video has been shared 135,525 times and has garnished 73,451 likes — and this from Occupy Democrats’ Facebook page alone!

Screen Shot 2015-11-05 at 7.26.21 PM

The high point of Gutiérrez’s sentiments — even according to Occupy Democrats — begins around the end, where he states:

“It seems to me that what we’re really talking about here today is turning back the clock… gay people are not going back in the closet; Latinos and Asians and immigrants are not going to disappear; and women are not going to get back-alley abortions and put their lives at risk again while Americans are standing up for a better, more inclusive, egalitarian future for everyone in this country… We’re good, we’re in a good place because there’s a growing coalition in America. We all know what it is. It’s people who care about Mother Earth, it’s people who care about women and their rights, it’s people who care about gays & lesbians, it’s people who care about immigrants, people who care that we have fair and decent salaries… And you want to know something? Donald Trump likes to talk about the polls. Well, I’ve got a poll, and in my poll the vast majority of the American people want to move forward, not turn back the clock.” (Edited by Occupy Democrats & me.)

It’s all so wonderfully worded, so passionate and well-spoken; but was he right? Was he overconfident? Where do Americans really stand on these issues? Are we experiencing a heyday of progressivism? Or was Gutiérrez playing fast & loose with his party-time rhetoric? It really got me thinking, and I had to do some serious homework!

I’m glad I did.

According to an AP-GfK poll, the nation is totally divided over the issue of marriage equality. As noted by USA Today, even with support edging out opposition (by a measly 42-40 margin), those in disagreement with the Supreme Court ruling still lead 41-39 percent, while 56 percent of the nation continues to believes that, when push comes to shove, the religious liberty of local officials like Kim Davis trumps the state’s need to protect gay rights, and this against 36 percent of Americans saying otherwise. 

On the matter of immigration, Pew reports the views of Americans regarding assimilation aren’t really too far off from Donald Trump with 66 percent of independents and even 55 percent of Democrats thinking, generally, that immigrants aren’t too big on the whole assimilation thing and that, “Overall, about half of Americans (49%) say immigration should be decreased.” I’d be remiss were I not to add, “A Pew Research survey conducted in May found 31% of Americans said that legal immigration should be decreased…”  

As for the pro-life/pro-choice debate, Gallup says 50 percent of Americans identify as pro-choice. Apparently, this is a seven-year high for the pro-choice position, though not as high as it was in the ’90s. Just a few years ago, pro-lifers outnumbered pro-choicers at 46-44 percent. To take these numbers too far, as I believe Gutiérrez does, is an exercise in well-wishing… or at least an unwarranted enthusiasm spiced up with a dash of good old-fashioned stump-speech theater. Add to this the Reuters/Ipsos poll pointing out that while 54 percent of respondents support continued funding of Planned Parenthood, this dropped by 10 points for those having seen the videos by Center for Medical Progress. Throw that bit into the mix and the poll discovers “39 percent saying Planned Parenthood should not receive government funding and 34 percent said federal dollars should continue.”

For the purpose of this entry, views on income inequality and climate change are similar. Regarding income inequality, Gallup states that 63 percent of Americans believe its distributed unfairly. But “these attitudes are substantially unchanged over the past 30 years,” and with only 52 percent saying higher taxes on the rich are the answer. Concerning climate change, Pew finds that 61 percent of respondents said they believe “there’s solid evidence that the earth is warming” but only 48 percent consider it a “high priority”; wrap this up with, “in an international survey of 39 publics last year, Americans were among the least concerned about climate change threatening their country.” 

So returning to the quote from Gutiérrez, what poll doth he speak of? Certainly none of those linked in this post! It almost appears as though he pulls all of this entirely out of his ass… a lot like Trump, actually, blowing hot air for political points with the base — a liberal base, by the way, enjoying an all-time high of 25 percent of the American population, trailing 14 points behind conservatives.

The prick of my point: a sober glance over the best numbers we’ve got available indicates that on each and every one of these issues — and quite contrary to claims made by Gutiérrez! — our nation is dreadfully divided, being as “substantially unchanged” as it is easily entertained by congressional theatrics… especially when the act plays out in favor of our cherished causes and their champions.

Round & round we go…
The Paleocrat, Jeremiah Bannister
