So, just last week, Democrats refused to specifically call out anti-Semitic remarks by one of their members and instead issued a universal condemnation of all hate and bigotry.

Now, they're pretending that Trump supports white supremacists because in the wake of this New Zealand attack the statement from the White House condemned all hate and didn't specifically call out white supremacy.

The double standard is glaring and undeniable. By their own standards, Democrats support anti-Semitism. You've backed yourselves into this corner. Either they're deliberately lying about Trump, or they're a bunch of anti-Semites. Pick one.

The glee with which the radical progressives are trying to take advantage of these 49 dead Muslims is disgusting.

This is nothing new.

Here is a thread from 2017 I did showing that when someone perceived as a Democrat attacks people, they condemn all hate.

But when someone perceived on the right attacks people, they demand the right only call out hate on the right.

Liberals, not all Democrats, are the ones who are doing this. There are some conservative democrats out there yet, but the far left keeps saying, you are either with us or against us, so some of the moderates are getting sucked in farther to the left.

I hate the saying "you are either with us or against us" and the one that says " the enemy of thy enemy is my friend"

If the Democrats, and by extension the left, didnt have double standards they would have no standards at all.

I have a theory that they wake up in the morning, go stand in front of a mirror and while staring at themselves they list all the shytty things they have done in the past 24 hrs.
They then get dressed and ready for the day and at the first opportunity the say everything they said in the mirror but say Trump did it.

Once upon a time I was one of those Carter era conservative Democrats, then the fairytale came crashing to an end under Obama as the radicals took control of the party. I found a new home with more like minded, middle of the road, people under the Republican banner. To be honest with you the Democratic leadership makes me sick.

Apparently the only prerequisite to be a democratic Congressman is disingenuous speech’s and off the cuff radical sound bites. Logic and common sense appears to be lost on them.

I can't figure out how the Democrats got taken over by the far left. I can't understand why the moderate and conservative democrat congressmen don't have the guts to stand up to the radical liberals trying to push their agenda in our government. A little change is good, but deception and suppression of the masses should not be allowed at the extent the Democrats are doing it now. I will no longer vote Democrat for anything, I am sick of the new pushy and intimidating Democrat party that has emerged over the years.

That’s a false and opposite distinction.

There are plenty of independent liberals and leftists who abhor the dnc establishment, media, identity politics. Yes some are democrats.

It’s the highly politicized democrat establishment developing political strategies and narratives like this, not “liberalism” worldwide.

Politicians are vultures feeding off of those who die in these massacres.

The dead will be ignored by the next news cycle until the next opportunity arises to prop up the corpses in order for them to garner sympathy and votes.

I think it is the media and more specifically social media. The radicals have always been there but it has never been so easy to spread a message than it is now. It is no longer about facts and debate, but sound bites and virtue signaling. All it takes to get sheeple behind something is a clever meme.

I find a lot of liberals just want to be liked and don't want to rock the boat. So when a group of vocal activist latch on to a cause du jour, it spreads rapidly with little analysis of the issue. It is far easier for the average lib to just virtue signal than to think critically about any idea. In addition, you have media constantly banging the right way to think, it makes it harder for those with opposing views to have a voice.

It is the ultimate form of group think and being in a bubble. The emperor has no clothes but you better not say anything or else you will be ostracized as a racist....

Finally, it is like Frankenstein. The Democrat leadership encourages the radicals because they believe it brings out the votes. However, they've lost control. In the past, it would bring out the votes, but then the leadership would move everyone back to the center. However, like Frankenstein, the leadership has lost control over their creation and are struggling to keep it from blowing up in their faces.

In fairness, the Republicans kind of do the same thing.

Yeah, the leaders of the Democratic party are on the wrong path. They can't turn back easily now that they opened a can of worms that cannot be closed anymore. Both parties are on the defense, both thrashing out at one another, but the thing is, the whole Democratic party is messed up, not many of the Republicans are completely unreasonable YET. When the conservatives get pushed to much they revolt, Liberals may be pushing too much, this will lead to a complete distruction of liberals, civil unrest as Republicans shut down the economy to punish the liberals and some crazy far right will think they are ok with thrashing the liberals, this will lead to an exodus created by fear from Liberal ways that are actually irrational based changes. Yes, socialism and Communism could work but there has never been a country yet that has made it work and still allows decent rights to their people. Just because a couple of European countries have been able to do this for twenty years doesn't mean it can sustain that system, socialism is a pipe dream essentially, the only group that has suscessfully had socialism are the ahmish because of strong conservative traditions, not liberal policies. Same with Norway, Our countries far left could never support a socialism like Norways, the liberals here are not conservative enough to make socialism work.

Yep! The Frankenstein monster for the Democrat old guard is the Justice Democrats. They want to get rid of every Democrat who has been in Congress and put in their puppets. Look up who is behind the puppet string of AOC!!

The interesting thing to watch will be just how far those like Schumer, Pelosi, Feinstein will go to stop them. RICO? Body Bags? The extremists are not just coming, but are now IN our government.

Yep.

They've outdone themselves this time especially after creating HR 183.



They're wilfully profiling a social, and political group for the actions of an individual.

Awesome!

Just sent this to my Rep asking if Blumenthal is going to be held accountable for blaming Trump on the NZ shooting.

Blumenthal, and Cortez, and every other D that's spoken out of their rears on it.

Well, liberal thinking tends to produce the ideologies of hate, the dems are the party of hate after all. It would not surprise in the least to find out that Christchurch shooter was a liberal type operative and the massacre was set up by liberal types in the government/military to achieve more gun restrictions.

The government doesn't care about you. You are commodities on a free range tax farm to be used or culled at will according to the agenda of the day. Planes full of innocent passengers have been blown out of the sky to kill one person or prevent a shipment from arriving, by governments and banking cartels.

Cheers - Dave

Not everybody agrees that it was anti-Semitism to talk about Israel. Of course Republicans will jump on the chance to call one of their enemies an anti-semite for any criticism of Israel.

Republicans are just becoming exactly what the left has become. Calling people racist for something that wasn't racist.

Just assume Omar is racist b/c she's muslim...

Because the right never condemns hate attacks and supremacy ideologies... in fact how many white supremacists are in Congress right now?


How many white supremacists Democrats in Congress right now?

This is what desperation and denial looks like^

How does it feel being treated like an idiot by your masters on the left? They're just hoping you won't notice that they're guilty of the exact same thing they're blasting Trump for. And they know you won't notice. You haven't been told to think it's hypocritical, so you won't, like a good lemming.
