Condi Rice Perfectly Describes The Democratic Party In Just 75 Words

“If you are taught bitterness and anger, then you will believe you are a victim. You will feel aggrieved and the twin brother of aggrievment is entitlement. So now you think you are owed something and you don’t have to work for it and now you’re on a really bad road to nowhere because there are people who will play to that sense of victimhood, aggreivement and entitlement, and you still won’t have a job.” ~ Condaleeza Rice


This is simply spot on. If Rice had been the Secretary of State, during the Obama administration, we would probably be closer to defeating ISIS, and the Middle East would probably not have been turned into a bubbling cauldron of turmoil.

When former community organizer Barack Obama was put in charge, his first selection for the position of Secretary of State was Hillary Clinton.

Hillary’s resume included standing by her serial-philanderer husband, Bill, and moving to New York to run for the United States Congress.

Hillary was loyal to the Democratic Party, but her claims of being a champion of women’s rights falls flat when one looks at how she worked to discredit and silence the women who had accused her husband of cheating with them, or, in at least one case, of actually sexually assaulting them.

Barack Obama’s second nomination for Secretary of State was John Kerry, who once accused the American military of being full of rapists, murderers, and torturers. He compared American soldiers’ activities in Vietnam to that of the fierce and violent conqueror Genghis Khan.

As Secretary of State, John Kerry announced Global Warming to be as big of a threat to mankind as ISIS.

It can easily be argued that the world would look like a far different place if Barack Obama had chosen somebody like Condaleeza Rice to be his Secretary of State.


We have had a few people ask about this quote and whether it was authentic. Since this quote has been shared repeatedly most searches simply turn up other people sharing the quote. But we did find this quote from a 2012 fundraiser in Utah

“America has never had a narrative of grievance. We’ve never believed ‘I am doing poorly because you’re doing well,'” she said. “The moment we begin to believe that we are doing badly because someone else is doing well, that moment that aggrievement takes over, it’s not long before his twin brother comes behind, and that would be entitlement.”

This seems very similar to the above quote and also uses the same narrative device of the twin brothers of aggrievement and entitlement. That said the quotes have a fairly similar message but are slightly different. So it could be that in a different setting where she was discussing this same theme she said the above quote. But at this point we have no proof either way. Regardless both of these are great quotes that discuss problems with the entitlement mentality.
