In a recent column, I made the comment, “Joe McCarthy wasn’t wrong, he was just early.” I was being flippant. I was trying to make light of the Democrat Party’s turn towards radical, extreme, Marxist, anti-American rhetoric.
I had no idea how right I really was.
I’m not being flippant anymore. Joe McCarthy would have a field day with today’s Democrat Party. He’d be a hero for defending America from evil, radical Marxist politicians posing as "Democrats." We’d be giving him ticker tape parades.
McCarthy’s Senate committee was called “The House Un-American Activities Committee.” Let me ask you bluntly: How much more un-American can you get than the ideas espoused just in the past few days by Democrats?
First, I’ll start with the usual suspect — Ilhan Omar.
It turns out back in 2017 she wrote a Twitter post framing American soldiers as the bad guys in the “Black Hawk Down” incident in Somalia — where 19 American soldiers died. She clearly hates Jews, Israel, America, and U.S. soldiers. Never forget that Nancy Pelosi put her on the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee. How un-American can you get?
Days ago, Islamic terrorists targeted Christians at churches on Easter morning in Sri Lanka. They murdered 300 innocent Christians. Obama and Hillary tweeted out their condolences. But they both refused to use the word “Christians” to describe the victims. Neither would use the word “Islamic” to describe the mass murderers. How un-American can you get?
The Democrat-dominated legislature of New York just passed a law that gives free college tuition to illegal immigrants. Days later they killed a proposal for tuition assistance for Gold Star families — the children of U.S. military vets killed fighting for our freedoms. How un-American can you get?
But I’ve saved the best for last. Bernie Sanders announced his new plan for allowing murderers and rapists to vote from prison. Democrats are no longer satisfied with ex-felons voting. Now they want felons to vote while still in prison. The worst of the worst are qualified to vote according to Bernie. Murderers, mass murderers, rapists, pedophiles, even terrorists. According to Bernie they all have a God-given right to vote — even while on death row.
According to Bernie’s plan, if they were alive today in U.S. prisons, Hitler, Stalin and all of the world’s worst mass murderers could and should vote from their prison cells. According to Bernie, the Boston Bomber should vote. If they were alive, Bernie would allow Charles Manson, Ted Bundy, and the Boston Strangler to vote.
How low can you go? How un-American can you get? Democrats are certainly testing the waters for 2020.
Like I said, “Joe McCarthy wasn’t wrong, he was just early.”
