When most people say they “seek to break partisan gridlock,” they intend to act as a mediator in negotiating a solution among legislators from different political parties.
When Manka Dhingra is involved in bipartisan conversations, her negotiation tactics seem to rely more on ignorance and slander than actual discussions. Dhingra – a radical leftist whose idea of “bi-partisanship” is comprised of calling Republicans racists and misogynists, slandering Republican women with the label of “self hate” – has declared her intentions to run for Senate in the 45th Legislative District.
Unfortunately for Dhingra, the very district she is running for office in is made up of the very people she has insulted. Republicans have traditionally done very well in the cities and surrounding areas of Sammamish, Kirkland, Woodinville, Redmond, Duvall, etc. Typically, calling the majority of your constituency racist and misogynistic – and insulting their ideology, saying it derives from self-hatred – tends to lose you elections, not win them.
So, is Dhingra running an effective strategy? Not likely.
However, the left has begun to rely on these types of strategies more and more as of late. Clinging to the wake left by the most recent Presidential election, Democrats in Washington are attempting to push our state as far left as possible – sending in unqualified, radical candidates to take the seats of moderate ones. When Senator Andy Hill passed away this last October, members from both sides of the aisle were distraught. Hill left behind a legacy of successful bi-partisan negotiations and friends from both parties. Now, it looks as though the liberals of Washington State are seeking to end that bipartisanship with the next election.
Washington State Democrats have decided that a radical leftist is the best-suited candidate to replace the late Senator Hill this fall. It seems that all of the electable, moderate Democrats in the 45th district have turned down the offer to run for office. So, rather than continuing their search – it looks as though they’re moving forward with scare tactics instead. After all, why not attempt to slander the district blue?
Dhingra – a radical leftist ..
According to the source material at the only link in this entire post, she’s a mother who lives in the suburbs and works as a prosecuting attorney. In describing such a person with the words, “radical leftist,” all Shift does is to remind us of how very, very, very far to the right Shift has gotten stuck.
… whose idea of “bi-partisanship” is comprised of calling Republicans racists and misogynists,
She’s a Democrat who works in the King County Prosecutor’s Office, which for years has been led by Dan Satterberg, a Republican. It would seem she knows a bit more about “bi-partisanship” than does a web site which publishes post after post after post attacking Democrats.
(Also, if you’re going to accuse someone of “calling Republicans racists,” you might want to provide an actual quote from that person wherein she calls Republicans racists.)

Did you even read Dhingra’s post? She is taking the typical stance of a “Radical Leftist” and disenfranchised Democratic voter by insinuating that anyone (women included) who did not vote for Clinton as someone who hates themselves, is racist, homophobic, etc., etc.
So, she works for a Republican (according to your insinuation)…this, somehow, is supposed to make her more fair??? The judge who ruled against our President’s immigration ban was appointed by a Republican President…hello! Oh, Justice John Roberts, appointed by a Republican President, also voted with the Democratic Justices on the Supreme Court, several times…imagine.
Don’t try to justify your lame reasoning by throwing the words Republican or Conservative in with your sentences…those of us who’s brains have not been rotted by our state’s Liberal lawmakers, can still see through all your double speak and think for ourselves.

If by “post” you mean the tweet quoted in this post, yes I did. Did you? Because if so, you did a remarkably poor job of comprehending it:
…insinuating that anyone (women included) who did not vote for Clinton as someone who hates themselves, is racist, homophobic, etc., etc.
Her tweet does not “insinuate” anything, nor does it say anything at all about racism, LBGTQ issues, “etc. etc.” You simply made that up — or you followed Shift’s lead in making a blatantly false claim about what she said.
So, she works for a Republican (according to your insinuation).
Again, no insinuation took place. I merely stated the well-documented fact that she works in an office which King County’s voters have repeatedly chosen Republicans to lead.
…this, somehow, is supposed to make her more fair???
No, but it bolsters her claim to know how the Republican Party behaves on issues important to working mothers, such as herself.
Her work also gives her far more credibility on the topic of “bipartisan” than has this hard-right partisan web site, which has never, ever said anything positive about any Democrat.

You can deny all you want (Leftists are experts at it), but anyone who supported Hillary Clinton, in the election, must also support her ideals. Remember the “basket of deplorables” comment, or the “irredeemable” remark? Add to that the numerous, numerous claims of anyone not for Clinton as being racist, homophobic, xenophobic, etc. and one cannot ignore the intent of Dhingra’s post.
Oh, yes, she did not literally state these things in her post, but her feelings on the subject were made abundantly clear (“self hate is a powerful thing”).
But, you go right ahead and continue to attempt to justify your position on this article, while the rest of us watch, in casual amusement.
anyone who supported Hillary Clinton, in the election, must also support her ideals.
Look, I’m sorry you were never graduated from Ms. Polyanna’s 8th Grade Civics class, but out here in the real world, adults make difficult choices all of the time. The necessary and sufficient condition for voting for Mrs. Clinton was revulsion at the self-described abuser of women whom the Republicans ran against her. Nobody needed to “support her ideals” to know that she did not favor treating women as poorly as he claimed to do.
…the numerous, numerous claims…
Not one of which you’ve actually quoted, linked to, or cited.
Oh, yes, she did not literally state these things in her post,
Thank you for admitting your (and Shift’s) claim that she did was false.
…but her feelings on the subject were made abundantly clear…
Yes, and they were neither racist nor homophobic.
But, you go right ahead and continue to attempt to justify your position on this article,
The position that both you and Shift have blatantly lied about what Ms. Dhingra actually said? I think you’ve already justified that for me. Thanks again.

“The self-described abuser of women”?
I’m pretty sure the Republican Party did not have Bill Clinton on their ticket…
Cute. Either you know what Mrs. Clinton’s opponent was quoted as saying, or you’re too ignorant to continue this conversation.
What’s it like, to have twenty-five years of listening to anti-Clinton hate propaganda revealed as the complete waste of time you’ve shown us here?

Hey Tensor – how is declaring conservative women “self haters” not a literally sick, deranged comment re those who decided to not vote for a career corrupt felon (Illegal server/destruction of evidence) and racketeer (looted Haiti Hurricane relief funds and pay for play Clinton Foundation hundreds of millions) ?

She just insulted my mother. She’s dead to me.
