President Trump is being vilified for his reaction to the blistering press conference falsely accusing him of racism, held by four freshman Democrat congresswomen, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Ilhan Omar (MN), Rashida Tlaib (MI), and Ayanna Pressley (MA). The women, characterized by their coarse anti-Americanism and anti-Semitic rants are members of a group known as the “Justice Democrats,” brazenly dedicated to backing radical primary candidates against Democrat incumbents they view as being too moderate and, yes, too white to ably represent their districts.
The President responded with this tweet.
Rational Americans have watched in bewilderment as the left has taken a unified plunge into the putrid waters of Trump hatred and any reaction to their vicious assaults now qualify as “racist.”
The absurdity took another leap Tuesday with Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announcing he will support legislation proposed by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) to establish a commission to study reparations for slavery. The Civil War ended 154 years ago, with an estimated 629,000 lives lost in the fight to end slavery, but that accounts for nothing when you are a leftist with an agenda.
Brooklyn-born Schumer, whose grandparents were Ukrainian immigrants, has no relatives who owned slaves, but retaining his leadership position is paramount, and keeping this pot stirred is the best way to maintain support within a steadily unraveling Democrat Party. His House counterpart, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, has lost control to the group of newly elected rabble-rousers — self-identified as “The Squad” — who relentlessly challenge her steadily eroding authority. Her voice trembles and her eyes grow glassy as she realizes the seriousness of the unprecedented situation.
Watch U.S. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) throw down his gavel and “abandon the chair,” (brief video). In utter disgust, he stated, “We just want to fight,” while he was presiding over the House chamber. Democrat Cleaver, also a United Methodist pastor, later issued this statement expressing his frustration with the proliferation of hyper-partisan politics and the recent lack of decorum on the national political scene.
