5 Ways Democrats Have Become Deranged
The Democrats have taken over the House and are doing exactly what we warned about in the months leading up to the November midterms. One would say they have completely lost their marbles. On the first day of the 116th Congress, they have begun their radical agenda to fill the swamp back up with an exhaustive and expensive to-do list ranging from open borders, higher taxes, issuing articles of impeachment, and abolishing the electoral college. Here are just the first of the deranged Democrats we warned you about and the ludicrous things they are saying and doing:
1. Comparing President Trump to Hitler
In a New Year’s day speech, Rep. Hank Johnson compared President Trump to Adolf Hitler. After he demeaned MAGA supporters, he claimed that President Trump got into the White House because of a “vigorous resurgence of bigotry, hate, cruelty and ignorance,” the same way Adolf Hitler was able to rise to power in Germany. Johnson made a pretty appalling comparison to rally his supporters as “racism” and “bigotry” have become the common buzzwords for angry Democrats, but let’s not forget he was the same representative who was convinced Guam would tip over from too many people.
2. Impeach the Mother****er
Democrats wasted no time calling for President Trump’s impeachment as Rep. Brad Sherman announced he and other anti-Trump congressmen have reintroduced articles of impeachment against Trump. Freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib went a step further by using profanity to rile up her supporters about impeaching President Trump. “People love you and you win,” she exclaimed. “And when your son looks at you and says, ‘Momma, look you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t, because we’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the mother***er.’” The Democrats have stooped to vulgarity to ease their collective Trump Derangement Syndrome and we probably won’t see the end of it until President Trump leaves office.
3. “Radical” Ocasio-Cortez and the Green New Deal
Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal would eliminate carbon emissions in 12 years. How would a deal eliminate the coil and oil industry, install expensive new energy components for housing units and businesses, and force drivers to buy new automobiles to fit the standards be paid for? Ocasio-Cortez suggests taxing the rich as much as 70 percent to pay for this energy reform. Radical? Yes, but at least she admits that she is being a radical. This deal she is proposing, however, would destroy trillions of dollars in wealth and wouldn’t even provide a 100 percent stable renewable energy. The idea of taxing the wealthy by 70 percent wouldn’t even come close for the deal to “pay for itself” and would destroy thousands of jobs and burden the low and middle classes.
4. A Call for Eliminating the Electoral College
Rep. Steve Cohen introduced a bill to eliminate the electoral college, calling it “outdated.” The Democrats saw their losses in the 2016 election when President Trump won the electoral vote by 304 over Clinton’s 232 votes. Since then, Democrats have opposed the system. Unfortunately for them, the “outdated” electoral college is protected by our Constitution and is here to stay. The framers knew the dangers of a direct democracy and this extra layer in our system would, according to Alexander Hamilton, preserves “the sense of the people,” while ensuring that a president is chosen “by men most capable of analyzing the qualities adapted to the station, and acting under circumstances favorable to deliberation, and to a judicious combination of all the reasons and inducements which were proper to govern their choice.”
5. A Dollar for a Wall
The government has been partially shut down for two weeks and while President Trump was willing to meet during Christmas and New Year’s, Democratic leaders were out of D.C. enjoying their vacations. Nancy Pelosi came back to Washington and her chamber passed two government funding bills without funding for the wall. Pelosi reiterated that she wouldn’t agree to funding for a border wall, but joked she would give President Trump a $1 for it. She has called the border wall “immoral and ineffective,” which is a change in tune from her stance on immigration in 2008 when she called for securing the border. Pelosi and Chuck Schumer need to stop being cavalier about the crisis at the border in the name of politics. Their aversion to President Trump is allowing for illegal immigrants to cross the border to endanger people and to live off of the tax payer dime.
Deranged Democrats are getting started with their radical agendas and will do anything to spite President Trump by attempting to pass bad policy and make dangerous decisions that do more harm for Americans than good. Unfortunately, we won’t see the end of Democrat derangement any time soon.
