The Dem's Next Presidential Candidate
« on: December 29, 2018, 10:45:39 AM »
https://nypost.com/2018/12/29/are-two-democratic-senators-waging-a-bigoted-campaign-against-catholics/

For all the whining about the constitution and Trump, Ms Harris, a complete pig, and many of her cronies, regularly do things like the above, without the widespread mainstream media blowback, or dozens of articles from Dougie, Liberty, LC, or Sanjeev....

I also found this to hilariously highlight the hypcrisy:

“Extremism” is a fast-moving target. As evidence of its extremism, the Democrats cite KOC’s support of California’s Proposition 8, a ballot measure that limited marriage to one man and one woman for the purposes of state law. The measure easily won a majority — a majority of California voters. That was in 2008, when young Sen. Barack Obama was running for president as a candidate opposed to same-sex marriage, as indeed was his major Democratic primary opponent, Hillary Rodham Clinton. Somehow, a political view held by Barack Obama and the majority of California voters in 2008 has become the equivalent of al-Qaeda’s program 10 years later — if we are to take Sens. Harris and Hirono seriously.

LOL give me a break. The reason nobody posts articles like this is because, on the scale of importance, this is a blip on the radar. It's barely above the IQ of whoever wrote your charming NY Post article, which includes gems such as:

Quote
One of the ironies here is that the Knights of Columbus was founded in part to counter such anti-Catholic bigotry, which traditionally has been associated with the Democratic Party and its military arm, the Ku Klux Klan

And you wonder why nobody posts this stuff  ;D ;D ;D

I'm glad as always you find the one stupid/tertiary debate point to excuse otherwise valid criticism. Harris is probably the biggest proponent of identity politics. She has made a career out of playing the race card, and will run for president on the same grounds. Being anti-Catholic has become very cool in the liberal circles.

Here's a sneak peak of the "power" she has with her playbook.

On June 7, 2017, Harris garnered media attention for her questioning of Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General, over the role he played in the May 2017 firing of James Comey, the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.[144] The prosecutorial nature of her questioning caused Senator John McCain, an ex officio member of the Intelligence Committee, and Senator Richard Burr, the committee chairman, to interrupt Harris and request that she be more respectful of the witness;[145] other Democrats on the committee pointed out that they had asked similarly tough questions, but had not been interrupted.[145] On June 13, Harris questioned Jeff Sessions, the Attorney General, on the same topic;[146] Harris was again interrupted by McCain and Burr.[147] Sessions stated that Harris's mode of questioning "makes me nervous";[147] other Democratic members of the committee again pointed out that Harris was the only senator whose questioning was interrupted with an admonishment from the chairman.[147] Burr's singling out of Harris sparked suggestion in the news media that his behavior was sexist, with commentators arguing that Burr would not treat a male Senate colleague in a similar manner.[148] The website True Pundit suggested that treating Harris differently than other members of the Intelligence Committee is evidence of racism.[149] In addition, when CNN pundit Jason Miller described Harris as "hysterical", Kirsten Powers, who was taking part in the same on-air segment, told Miller that his use of the term to describe Harris was sexist, and that he would not describe male senators in the same manner.[150]

Question her? You're sexist, racist, etc.... la dee da da...

As I am equally glad over your calls of hypocrisy over such "high impact" events: someone making a call for a resignation, and asking questions "hysterically". All the meanwhile glossing over our President's similar behavior. One might even characterize your behavior as...hypocritical  ::) ::)

No mention of our President's promise to "MAGA", while his administration auctions off federal wilderness, un-democratizes internet access, blows up the budget to enrich his crony friends, slashes the IRS budget so they can't be caught, shuts down the government because he can't build a wall, isolates our international allies, can't manage to hire a competent employee who won't either quit or be federally indicted, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.

No hypocrisy there, right Greg!!!  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Although I'm not sure that I would argue that the KKK was the military branch the Democratic Party, there is a long history between the KKK and the Democratic Party.

And as I am sure you are aware, that "Democratic Party" is akin to the modern day Republican Party

The Democratic Party identified itself as the "white man's party" and demonized the Republican Party as being "Negro dominated,"

By 1877, when Reconstruction was officially over, the Democratic Party controlled every Southern state.

Now which modern day party does this most closely resemble?

That wasn't my point or the point of the article.  The KKK was against Blacks, Jews and Catholics.  The article Imho was pointing out that it's risky for a democrate to associate herself with an anti-catholic movement when the democrats have clear ties historically to the KKK.  I don't believe the article was well written  - but that's my interpretation.

If there's a hair to split, they'll do it. Anything to avoid reality. Is the article of scholar quality? Nope. Does it highlight exactly what Koomala & Co bring to the table? Yup. It's the same crap Trump does, just on the other side. Yet all the libs want to do is bitch and moan about Trump...

I would also add that the KKK made up the largest block of Democratic Party well into the 20th century.
