Something has happened to the Democratic Party, something dramatic and awful. It wasn’t that long ago that the Democratic Party liked the United States, and its members weren’t afraid to say it. Now saying positive things about the country will get you run out of the party and possibly attacked by a mob. Their media minions will cheer it all. And, if things go as expected next month, these people could retake the House of Representatives. These people in power should scare everyone.
There is nothing they won’t do to win, no lie they won’t tell, and no norm they won’t obliterate. The last few days alone provided us with many examples to demonstrate this very thing.
This week saw liberals obsessed with the disappearance, and now we know murder, of Jamal Khashoggi. The obsession was not over how he was killed, despotic governments kill their citizens all the time and no one bats an eye, it was a combination of two things – his job and the opportunity to attack President Trump.
Khashoggi was billed as a journalist, but he was more of a columnist. Either way, if he had any other job you never would have heard his name. But journalists love stories about journalism the way Hollywood loves movies about the movie business. Add in the ability to blame his murder on the President’s criticism and you’ve got the perfect media storm. And Democrats were more than happy to jump on board.
First, let me just say that I don’t care. I know you’re not supposed to say this, but I’m not interested in lying to you. It’s sad that a man was murdered, but it happens all the time. No one’s profession makes them special. He wasn’t an American and it wasn’t in this country, so I don’t care.
More importantly, I’m not interested in destroying or even damaging our relationship with Saudi Arabia over this. Our relationship as a nation is much more important than one of their citizens, even if he wrote for the Washington Post.
Democrats know this, yet they’re out calling for sanctions and worse. Why? Because they see a political advantage in it.
President Trump has been rightly critical of the media in this country because they’re terrible, biased in every way and have gotten so many stories wrong or simply lied about his administration. His words, however, had nothing to do with what happened to Khashoggi in Turkey. You’d never know that from watching our media.
Half the personalities on MSNBC flat-out blamed the President for inspiring the murder, and at least one idiot Democratic Congressman, Joaquin Castro, said he’d read “reporting that Jared Kushner may have, with U.S. intelligence, delivered a hit list, an enemies list, to the crown prince, to MBS, in Saudi Arabia and that the prince may have acted on that, and one of the people he took action against is Mr. Khashoggi.”
This is horribly irresponsible and evil. It’s also just how desperate to regain power Democrats have become.
In addition to attempting to implicate the President in murder, Democrats are actively encouraging illegal aliens to come to the country, no matter the damage to Americans.
They call it a “caravan,” what it really is a conga line of no-skilled, non-English speaking people marching up Central America to meet liberal activists at the border waiting to greet them with open arms and help them skirt our laws in the hope that they’ll inspire American Hispanics to vote for them. It’s sick.
Even though our economy is booming, and there are more jobs than people looking for work, those jobs aren’t for people illiterate in their native tongue, let alone unable to communicate in our language. But Democrats have embraced this lie that somehow tens of millions of illegal aliens running up massive unpaid medical bills and whose children cost a fortune to educate are the key to economic growth.
As far as Americans being the victims of crimes committed by these illegal aliens, 100 percent of those crimes would be prevented if the perpetrators weren’t in the country in the first place. Every murder, rape, robbery, and assault would not have occurred if our border were secure and we deported people here illegally. That means liberals are perfectly fine with Americans being victims of those crimes because they think their identity politics gambit will bring them more votes than the indifference toward citizens costs them. Again, sick.
The ends justify the means to the left, which is why they can’t be allowed back anywhere near power.
These are just a few examples of what they’ve done recently, stretch the timeline backwards further and they become too numerous to count. Every one of them done in pursuit of power. Maybe someday the Democratic Party will shift back to one that actually embraces American exceptionalism, or at least isn’t hostile to the ideals on which this country was founded. Until then, they must be defeated.
Because if they’re willing to do these things, and much worse, to obtain power, just imagine what they’d do if they got it.
Also take into account all the assaults on Republicans and their families in public places. The latest was a verbal attack on Mitch McConnell over the weekend, eating at a restaurant in his own home state. At least in this instance, some of the other patrons yelled back to leave him alone, so they finally left.
The left has given up any pretense of civility, and if this election goes the way we hope it will, there could be more violence in the streets in the days to follow. Pray for our country and our president.
