Two Political Families Defend Disturbing Democrat Ideals
Published : August 21, 2018
This sounds like the start of a really bad joke, and in today’s political climate, it is a joke. Just this past week we saw the punchline of what it means to be in the Democrat Party by the actions of a career politician, a washed-up politician, a politician’s kid, and a journalist. And, of course, all of this plays out within just two families: the Cuomos and the Clintons.
Each family had two representatives provide a piece of Democrat belief to the overarching ideals of the party. Up first is Chris Cuomo, anchor of CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time.” Cuomo spent nearly seven minutes at the end of his Monday, Aug. 13 broadcast to push his ideological agenda. He provided defense of Antifa and their members’ right to punch people with whom they disagree.
“I argue to you tonight, all punches are not equal morally," Cuomo passionately said into the camera. "In the eyes of the law, yes. But in the eyes of good and evil, here's the argument: if you're a punk that comes to start trouble in a mask and hurt people, you're not about any virtuous cause. You're just somebody who's going to be held to the standard of doing something wrong."
"But when someone comes to call out bigots and it gets hot, even physical, are they equally wrong as the bigot they are fighting? I argue, no. Fighting against hate matters,” Cuomo concluded.
In Cuomo’s passionate opinion, Antifa is morally right as long as they are attacking “bigots,” who Antifa basically calls anyone who does not agree with them. At these same mob attacks, reporters, police officers, bystanders, and others were attacked. Cuomo uses the language of “stamping out” political opponents, using physical fighting as method to fight hate.
Onto Cuomo’s big brother Andrew who is running for his third term as governor of New York. He is facing a primary challenge from Cynthia Nixon known mostly as an actress from HBO’s Sex and the City, but who recently said to “ count her in” as a socialist democrat.
Her comments may be part of the inspiration to align the governor’s commentary more with the fringes of the Democrat Party. Either way, he chose to claim America as not all that great.
“We’re not going to make America great again,” Gov. Cuomo said to a crowd on Wednesday, Aug. 15, at the end of a speech opposing President Donald Trump. “It was never that great.”
It is quite possible that Andrew does not understand the term great. The term great does not mean perfect, it simply means to be above average. As a country, America is great because it is above average in comparison to the other 194. And to say that you do not want to make it great again, is actively calling for the country to be less than, to not succeed, to not rise above any and all injustices that the governor himself claims Americans need to overcome.
From one family to the next, the Clintons know how to absorb the spotlight. Hillary Clinton represents the washed-up politician who refuses to fade into retirement.
On the day Gov. Cuomo said America was never great, Clinton said Americans are a bunch of racists. Clinton took to Twitter last week in praise of an 11-year-old girl who began kneeling during the Pledge of Allegiance at her school. Clinton watched a Now This video and felt it necessary to praise the girl who copied NFL players in kneeling during the National Anthem.
The girl said she was inspired by Colin Kaepernick, and Clinton’s tweet was a reminder to the Democrat base that she supports the “resistance” and that NFL players should continue to kneel as a way to resist the White House.
And, finally, the apple does not fall far from the tree, as another generation of the Clintons is speaking the Democrat truth. Chelsea Clinton told a group of abortion activists at the “Rise Up for Roe” rally that in fact, abortions have helped the economy. Because abortion was made legal in 1973, the economy was able to add $3.5 trillion.
“It is not a disconnected fact … that American women entering the labor force from 1973 to 2009 added three and a half trillion dollars to our economy. Right?” Clinton said.
More than a decade ago researcher Dennis Howard found that since 1970, the more than 50 million abortions has cost the economy $35 trillion in lost productivity. Murder 50 million babies, make $3.5 trillion. Allow 50 million babies a chance at life, make $35 trillion. This should not be a Common Core math problem. There is a true answer.
To recap: The Cuomos and the Clintons believe that America is not a great country to live in, that you are a bigot and should be “stamped out” if you do not agree with them, that you are all racists, and that killing babies is acceptable because they care about the economy. And you must remember that the Cuomos and Clintons are considered the “mainstream” Democrats, the “establishment,” not the even further leftists who point-blank call themselves socialists.
If only this was one drawn out joke. Unfortunately, this is the reality of Democrat thinking in 2018, and the further along we get, the crazier and more catastrophic it gets. Hopefully America does not become one sad punchline.
