Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, during her tenure as head of the Democrats, has pushed quite a few ludicrous notions.
She has maintained that Republicans are waging a “war on women” when they have fought to keep government from forcing citizens to fund birth control options.
She has pretended that Republican opposition to unconstitutional gun control measures are, somehow, a breed of extremism.
She has claimed that Republican-backed voter ID laws are modern-day poll taxes designed to disenfranchise blacks.
So, with all of those absurd positions (and many more), it seems odd that she, of all people, could honestly accuse anybody of being “un-American.”
However, that is exactly what she did on CNN on Wednesday.
Appearing on CNN’s “Wolf,” the DNC chair blasted the entirety of the Republican 2016 presidential field as “un-American” for their willingness to aggressively confront the threat posed by radical Islam.
Wasserman Schultz claimed that her role “as the leader of one of the two major national party is to sound the alarm bell here. I mean, what is coming out of the Republican side of the presidential field is nothing short of un-American for a variety of reasons.”
She then took direct aim at the GOP’s lightning rod, Donald Trump:
“Trump is hurtling us towards a repeat of the McCarthy era. I mean, it can be called nothing less than that. God forbid this man would become president, and would actually implement the outrageous proposal that we would not allow Muslims to come into our country wholesale, and even ban Muslim Americans from traveling back into the country is just the, it cries out for a unified condemnation which has not come in any shape or form from the are Republican side.”
“Mealy-mouthed criticism that has come from some of the presidential candidates and unfortunately the Republican Party chairman, Mr. Priebus, is outrageous,” Wasserman Schultz continued. “What they need to do is unequivocally state, each one of their candidates for president would not support this man if he were their nominee, and every one of them continues to have raised the right hand and stand by that pledge to support this man if he is their nominee. You know, the poem that that came after World War II and the Holocaust that said, that talks about I didn’t speak up, and then they came for me, applies here. Well, we’re speaking up, and we will continue to speak up.”
Wassserman Schultz’s grandstanding is in-line with the Democratic go-to battle plan: feign indignation and attempt to assume the moral highground.
She represents a party that has devastated our economy, that crusades to take from those who have earned their money to fund the lifestyles of those who haven’t, that believes the rights of foreign invaders are superior to those of Americans, that the government that cannot provide adequate medical care for veterans should be tasked with administering the healthcare of hundreds-of-millions of people and that finding the truth about Benghazi and the death of Americans is not worth the trouble.
Yet, somehow, she has the gall to accuse somebody else of being “un-American”?
Trump’s plan may not be perfect, but it is at least an acknowledgment of the kind of danger America is in and an attempt to remedy it.
Meanwhile, President Obama has yet to concede that America is in a war with radical Islam.
