It’s not exactly a secret to say the mainstream media serves as the communications wing of the Democrat Party.
At this point, that much is obvious. Well, since Barack Obama became president, really.
Dems are losing their minds right now thinking President Trump is endangering Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar’s life by tweeting a video of her 9/11 comments spliced with actual 9/11 footage.
And yet, the MSM looks the other way when Dems incite violence against conservatives and Republicans.
Funny how that works, huh?
Allow Catholic conservative Matt Walsh to list three pertinent examples, per Daily Wire:
But if the sort of critiques now directed at Ilhan Omar can qualify as “incitement,” then Democrats are certainly guilty of inciting violence against their opponents on countless occasions. Let’s review just three recent examples:
(1) Democrats claimed that President Trump is a secret Russian agent in league with Vladimir Putin.
(2) Democrats accused Brett Kavanaugh of being a serial gang rapist.
(3) Democrats took a truly out-of-context video clip of a bunch of random high school kids from Kentucky and used it to paint them all as privileged bigots.
If this latest Ilhan Omar imbroglio “puts her life at risk,” then Democrats must answer for putting the lives of the president, a Supreme Court justice, and a schoolhouse full of teenagers at risk. By their own standard, they are all essentially terrorists. But by a more reasonable and consistent standard, they are simply guilty of constantly engaging in irresponsible, reckless, libelous, and dishonest rhetoric. The criticism of Omar is none of those things. It is just criticism, and it’s well deserved.
Back in January, President Trump was asked about Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY).
His response was perfect. He only needed two words.
“WHO CARES?” Classic Trump.
Ocasio-Cortez talks a big game but doesn’t know how to back it up.
GOP spokeswoman Jessica Proud: “Hypocrisy at its finest. The so-called champion of workers, when given her own responsibility, is not following the law. It’s unbelievable.”
Ocasio-Cortez believes President Trump is a racist.
Based on what?
Ocasio-Cortez: “The president certainly didn’t invent racism, but he’s certainly given a voice to it and expanded it and created a platform for those things.”
“When you look at the words that he uses, which are historic dog whistles of white supremacy. When you look at how he reacted to the Charlottesville incident, where neo-Nazis murdered a woman, versus how he manufactures crises like immigrants seeking legal refuge on our borders, it’s, it’s night and day.”
Ocasio-Cortez wants to be known as a “radical.”
She made that clear in her “60 Minutes” interview.
While speaking with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, AOC called for a 70% tax on America’s highest earners.
AOC: “You know, you look at our tax rates back in the ’60s and when you have a progressive tax rate system, your tax rate, you know, let’s say, from zero to $75,000 may be ten percent or 15 percent, et cetera. But once you get to, like, the tippy tops, on your 10 millionth dollar, sometimes you see tax rates as high as 60 or 70 percent. That doesn’t mean all $10 million are taxed at an extremely high rate, but it means that as you climb up this ladder you should be contributing more.”
It is going to be a long two years covering Alexandria.
She’s young. She has ideas.
Unfortunately, she’s too young to understand that her ideas are ridiculous.
