Most democrats are not very good at history. Combine that with their love of smear tactics and you get examples of proud ignorance like these:
One liberal democrat I used to work with loudly proclaimed that the 1968 Tet Offensive was the result of President Nixon's warmongering policies in
Vietnam. Nice try, but Nixon was elected in November of 1968 and didn't take office till January 1969. Tet occured on democrat President
"Micromanage the War" Johnson's watch.
"The Selective Service draft was obsolete when that doddering fool Raygun reinstated it anyway." Once again, Nice try. Selective Service was
reinstated in 1979 by democrat President James Earl "Jimmy" Carter III in response to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Notice how in addition to
getting the facts wrong, this democrat mananged to slip in multiple insults. So much for rational, reasoned debate...
And the BIG FUN FACT about the Colonel's morally top tier crew...
Another example of sleazy democrats in action.
Jessie Jackson has added former Chicago democratic congressman Mel Reynolds to the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition's payroll.
Reynolds was among the 176 criminals excused in President Clinton's last-minute forgiveness spree. Reynolds received a commutation of his six-and-
a-half-year federal sentence for 15 convictions of wire fraud, bank fraud & lies to the Federal Election Commission.
He is more notorious however, for concurrently serving five years for sleeping with an underage campaign volunteer.
This is a first in American politics:
An ex-congressman (a democrat) who had sex with an unaged subordinate won clemency from a president (a democrat) who had sex with a subordinate, then
was hired by a clergyman (a democrat) who had sex with a subordinate.
His new job? Youth counselor. Is this a great country or what?
Don't forget that the so-called Rev. Jackson was paying his mistress hush and child support money (a 6 figure sum) out funds collected by his
so-called "non-profit" organization.
Hmmmm...I am proud of the
monkey boy cause.
