UPDATE: Check out the response from Diamond and Silk. They are funny!
A website launched by two North Carolina sisters, Diamond and Silk, calling on Democrats to switch political parties and embrace Trump says, “For many years the Democratic Party has promoted agendas that most Americans did not agree with. Our country is deeply divided, and the silent majority has been bullied into silence by political posturing and underhanded agendas that favor the few while excluding the majority.”
The website, ‘DitchandSwitchNow.com‘, tells people to ditch the Democrat party and switch to the Republican party. Democrats are switching to the Republican party just to vote for Trump in open primary states.
The funny and charming sisters appear to be legitimate. Their website gives instructions on how to switch parties in the open primary n. It’s aimed at primaries, not elections.
At the same time, more than 46,000 have taken part in Pennsylvania, twice as many who have switched the other way. It’s happening in several other states including Illinois.
The name of the movement in Pennsylvania is called ‘Ditch and Switch’.
It’s not clear if it’s the same as the massive switch of parties.
Some of those switching parties are disaffected Democrats no doubt and others are really Republicans who never bothered to switch parties. The party has moved very far left and not every Democrat agrees with the change.
There is that other fourth possibility that they are switching to corrupt the election. Diamond and Silk aimed their website at primaries, not elections. If they are not tied to the switches in the states, it would be quite a consequence.
Some believe this is a Democrat operation chaos meant to disrupt the Republican nominating process, in which case, the sisters could be stealth Democrats though that doesn’t seem likely but it is possible some conniving Democrats could use the movement to their advantage.
By now, most know how MoveOn was able to mobilize tens of thousands at the Trump rally last night, complete with their professionally printed signs, and they did it in a week’s time. They also plan to disrupt more of Trump’s rallies in the same way, claiming he is a racist though he has clearly not said anything racist according to the true definition of racism.
The far-left guided by MoveOn and George Soros organizations is also a powerful movement. One only need look at popularity of Bernie Sanders, a man who is only an inch away from being a communist.
At least some of the ‘Ditch and Switch’ movement is legitimate. The AFL-CIO is launching a massive campaign to counteract Trump’s appeal to their membership.
Trump is a liberal on a number of issues and would have cross appeal.
Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh was asked if this is a genuine organic movement or a stealth Democrat Operation Chaos on his radio show. He doesn’t know.
Listen to what Rush says about it:
Update: Diamond and Silk have responded.
