American democrats are on a suicide mission of sorts, attempting to rail against President Donald Trump in unethical and unprecedented ways.
While political dissonance is nothing new in our nation, what has changed thoroughly over the course of the last 9 months is the collateral damage that the left is willing to endure in order to insult and demean the highest office in the land. Where once we would hear somewhat thoughtful and tactful arguments, we are now hearing emotional drivel and childish name calling. To make matters worse, Trump’s status as an outsider is being attacked…even though that was one of the primary reasons for his success in the general election.
More disturbing still is the fact that democrats are either unable or unwilling to recognize that fact. Trump’s “drain the swamp” ethos is precisely what Americans wanted, hence the results of the election, yet the left is in continual denial about that fact. It’s as if the democrats are the high school teacher who can’t come to terms with their class graduating and moving on to more independent thinking and enhanced freedoms.
And that is why staunch, Washington elitists such as Nancy Pelosi have resorted to insulting the American people in order to gain airtime. In her latest ill-conceived statements, Pelosi has lambasted the President’s policies again, forgetting for the umpteenth time that those policies are precisely what got him elected in the first place, and that denying that will denies the hopes and dreams of the American people.
“What the president is doing, it’s violent. His actions are violent. He does violence to what we want to do in health care. He does violence to the national debt by what he is adding to it. He does violence to the world, in terms of nuclear proliferation and the environment and our standing in the world, with his frivolity. What we want him to do is to calm down, get used to the job he has, know that his words weigh a ton, and that he really should know what he’s talking about when he says something.
“For instance, I don’t think that the president or the people around him know that much about health insurance, so he went down the wrong path. The bigger the pool of people buying insurance, the cheaper the premiums are, and the healthier the pool is economically. What he’s doing is dividing the pool so that some people will end up paying much more. He’s going to make it very hard for people to be able to afford insurance if they have a pre-existing medical condition. The American Cancer Society put out a statement after his executive order; he’s really dangerous to people with cancer.”
This direct and unflinching word vomit coming from a possibly senile senior leader in Congress belies a horrid truth about the radical left: They are willing to stop at nothing to defile the White House.
Nancy Pelosi is far from the first democrat to slide into the role of belligerent finger-pointer, and she won’t be the last. What the nation needs now, however, is not further animosity and rhetoric aimed at demeaning the will of We The People.
If the democrats are worried about divisiveness and violence, they sure have a funny way of showing it.
