As the Democrats move to impeach Trump for a second time for “incitement of insurrection” we could be mistakenly led to believe that to Pelosi, Schumer & Nadler, every saint has a past and every sinner a future unless they’re Republicans.
The Democrat Party seems to be fond of terrorists, thugs and criminals. A brief, but not exhaustive history.
Back in 1983, Susan Rosenberg was sentenced to 58 years after being convicted of a plot to assassinate Republican senators with a pipe bomb outside the US Senate chamber.
Among other things, Rosenberg was suspected of helping Assata Shakur escape from prison in 1979. Shakur assassinated a New Jersey state trooper and now lives in exile in Cuba. She was also involved in bombings and several executions of cops in New Jersey, New York and San Francisco.
House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler, implored then President Bill Clinton to commute Rosenberg’s 58 year sentence. Clinton pardoned her in January 2001.
One of the BLM founders, Alicia Garza, has repeatedly talked about Assata Shakur as one of her main inspirations. Nice to look at cop killers as mentors.
Remember when Democrats labeled Donna Hylton as one of “America’s most impactful community leaders” in a segment about the Constitution during the 2020 DNC?
Donna Hylton was known as inmate #86G0206 for 27 years. She was convicted of first-degree kidnapping and second-degree murder in the slaying of real estate broker Thomas Vigliarolo along with six other accomplices.
He was brutally tortured – burnt, beaten, starved, testicles squeezed with pliers, a three-foot metal bar up inserted in his anus – and eventually stuffed in a footlocker to decompose. Amazing what lengths one must go to become a community leader. Three feet apparently.
VP-elect Kamala Harris, said that she was “proud of Jacob Blake“ when she visited him in hospital. At the very least we have to say her messaging is consistent. After all, she backed the Minnesota Freedom Fund which bailed out criminals, some charged with murder, rape and child sexual assault. Jacob Blake’s father is an anti-Semite. It is amazing what makes an “incredible family” in America these days.
Maybe that is why she could show pride in Jacob Blake, who resisted arrest, fought with police officers (including headlocking one of them), ignored their instructions repeatedly while returning to his car for a weapon. He also was arrested in the past for brandishing a firearm in a bar while drunk, carrying a concealed firearm inside a public building, battery, assault, domestic violence and had an outstanding warrant for sexual assault and trespass.
If the Democrats didn’t have double standards they’d have none at all. Never mind all the Democrats who openly supported rioting, defunding the police and physically attacking anyone in Trump’s cabinet. It’s not the principle but the side that matters.
