Democrat Double Standard
© Roger Anghis
This last week America witnessed, in my opinion, one of the most disgusting displays of outright lies from the Democrat Party that I think I’ve ever seen. In a meeting where the nation of Haiti was discussed, and it was purported, only by Democrats, that President Trump referred to the nation as a ‘s***hole’. This claim was made by Senator Dick Durbin, which almost guarantees that Trump didn’t use the term. President Trump denies saying it and that’s good enough for me. All we have to do is listen to what has been coming from the left since Trump was elected and it becomes obvious that this is nothing but another pathetic attempt by the Democrats to discredit Trump. The idiot from Texas, Representative Al Green is going to call for impeachment, again, because of the alleged statement.
What is hard to understand in all of this is why is there not the same amount of outrage over certain comments made by members of the Democrat Party? We have this fool from Illinois, Representative Louis Gutierrez, who encouraged businesses to ignore our immigration laws: Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), who suggested on Monday that “every institution” in America should ignore the nation’s immigration laws until Congress passes amnesty legislation, said President George W. Bush will go down as the last Republican president in history if Congress does not act on immigration.
“I give you George W. Bush–the man who will go down in history as the last Republican president in American history,” Gutierrez said Tuesday on the House Floor.
If you do nothing on immigration, I guess you can take comfort in knowing that from Abraham Lincoln to George W. Bush, you had a pretty good run. Freeing the slaves, winning the Civil War, the interstate highway system–those all go in the highlight column.
Suggesting that he was offering Republicans helpful advice, Gutierrez said that if Republicans in the House do not act on amnesty legislation, the only thing children in the future will know about Republicans as “a national party will be what they read in the history blogs.” 1 Here we have a member of Congress, sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States, telling businesses to violate that very Constitution. The left never even blinked. This so-called representative of the people of Illinois has been arrested at least twice protesting AGAINST our constitutional immigration laws defending the illegals that have broken our immigration laws! One has to ask why is this lowlife still in Congress?
Representative Al Green, who wants to impeach Trump for allegedly making the statement, has been accused of sexual harassment by a former staffer: With the wave of sexual assault and sexual harassment allegations rocking Capitol Hill in recent weeks, some notable figures are trying to get ahead of the curve.
One notable Democrat really wants everyone to know that he and Lucinda Daniels, a former staffer who once accused him of sexual assault, are just friends.
Democrat Rep. Al Green of Texas and Daniels released a bizarre joint statement on Monday explaining that they are “consenting friends,” leading many to question the timing of the statement.2 Where are the calls for him to resign? Oh, I forgot, he’s a Democrat and that is allowed, with impunity.
Back in the day when Senator Harry Reid was majority leader he referred to President Bush as Hitler and there was even a D.C. school assignment relating to Bush being compared to Hitler, there was no uproar over that comparison: A Washington, D.C., public school, apparently in an effort to shape students like the majority of residents in the District of Columbia, recently assigned sixth-graders a homework assignment that required students to compare former President George W. Bush and Adolf Hitler.
The assignment, given out at McKinley Tech Middle School, asked them to draw examples from two assigned reading texts and fill in a Venn diagram with similarities and differences between the two. “Now that we have read about two men of power who abused their power in various ways, we will compare and contrast them and their actions. Please refer to your texts, ‘Fighting Hitler — A Holocaust Story’ and ‘Bush: Iraq War Justified Despite No WMD’ to compare and contrast former President George W. Bush and Hitler,” the assignment read.
An unnamed outraged parent called the school office to complain and was told the assignment was part of an approved curriculum unit. However, a spokeswoman for the D.C. Public Schools said while the readings had been suggested, the texts were not meant to be compared in the manner assigned. “The teacher deeply regrets this mistake, and any suggestion to malign the presidency or make any comparison in this egregious way,” she said, adding that the school would send home letters informing parents and that the teacher, who admitted she showed “extremely poor judgment,” would apologize to students.3
Reid even called President Bush a loser to a group of high school students during a civics discussion: Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid called President Bush “a loser” during a civics discussion with a group of high-school students yesterday.
“The man’s father is a wonderful human being,” Reid, D-Nev., told students at Del Sol High School when asked about the president’s policies. “I think this guy is a loser.”
Reid called the White House to apologize shortly after the event, his spokeswoman Tessa Hafen said. Reid spoke with Bush adviser Karl Rove, asking him to convey the apology to Bush, who was traveling in Europe.
Reid expressed “regret for the comments, that it was inappropriate,” Hafen said. The senator was giving a late speech in Salt Lake City and was unavailable for comment, she said.
Reid visited the school to discuss Congress and the debate over judicial filibusters. He repeated that Democrats will use various tactics to bring the Senate to a standstill if Republicans change the rules regarding filibusters to hasten the approval of Bush’s judicial nominees.4
Then there was the time when Harry Reid was accused of running the Senate like a ‘plantation’ by Representative Bill Cassidy, R-LA and Reid demanded an apology changing the subject when reminded that Hillary Clinton made the same statement concerning the way Republicans ran the Senate: Good ol’ Harry Reid. He just can’t help himself.
Confronted with his hypocrisy over saying he deserved an apology when U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy, R-La., recently said he ran the Senate like a “plantation” but dismissing Hillary Clinton’s nearly identical statement about Republicans running the Senate “like a plantation — and you know what I’m talking about” in 2006, the Senate majority leader simply changed the subject.
“I didn’t listen to [Clinton’s] speech,” said Reid, who was then the Senate minority leader, according to the New York Post, “but no one can question her civil- and human-rights credentials. They’re the best.” 5
Ever since Trump won the election the left has been in full meltdown mode. They have looked at anything they can to bring him down. Maxine Waters has been calling for his impeachment even before he was sworn in and then she denied it. On Tuesday, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) told MSNBC’s Craig Melvin that she has never called for President Donald Trump’s impeachment, despite having done just that – on live television and in writing – on too many occasions to count.
Waters’ bogus claim came just hours after she tweeted she would fight every day until Trump is impeached. A few days prior to that, the California congresswoman led a crowd in a chant of “Impeach 45!” at the Washington Tax Day march Saturday.6
I just hope that the American people open their eyes and see what the real objective of the Democrat Party is. Trump is for upholding the Constitution, our immigration laws, Americans first and the Democrats are against everything Trump is for. Let that sink in.
