Instead of asking Voight about his qualifications for the job (which are impeccable), Sanders used his time to challenge him on his Christian beliefs and he did it in such a vindictive manner. None of these Senators have the right to attack a candidate verbally especially about their religious beliefs.
Could you imagine the fallout if a Republican Senator attacked a nominee about his Muslim beliefs? It would be all over the mainstream media and Democrats would launch a verbal assault on the Republican Senator and at the very least, have him kicked off the committee. It’s a horrendous double standard because they only champion a cause if it helps the Democrat Party.
Since this just occurred while writing this, I’m also going to comment on the shooting that took place on the ballfield in D.C. where Republicans were practicing for their annual charity baseball game against the Democrats.
The shooter, who is now dead, used to work for Bernie Sanders’ campaign for President. His Face Book page was filled with anti-Trump and anti-Republican rage and sentiment. He walked up to the field and asked which team was practicing and when he was told it was the Republican team he made his way to the field and began shooting. If it weren’t for two members of the Capitol Hill police taking out the shooter, it would’ve been a massacre.
If you’re a liberal and are reading this, what do you think would happen if someone who worked on Donald Trump’s campaign asked the same question about who was on the field and then began shooting Democrats? You know as well as I do that all hell would break loose. Pelosi and Schumer would hold passionate press conferences and demand an investigation. Without any proof, they would make claims that Trump caused the attack. The mainstream media would pound the airwaves and print focusing on the killer being associated with Trump.
As I’ve looked around at the media coverage, the shooter’s ties to Bernie barely got mentioned and certainly none of the media outlets have blamed Bernie for what happened. I don’t blame him it just makes me mad that Democrats have such appalling double-standards.
What about the hate speech by the Left about the Trump Administration and Republicans in general, do they have culpability? Bernie tried to make Republicans out to be evil and the shooter used some of Bernie’s claims to write hate-filled posts on Face Book. Should Republicans blame Bernie and put together a special committee to investigate his ties to the shooter?
I find it interesting that Democrat leadership so quickly went into Kumbaya mode over the shooting. Of course they’d do this as they wanted to get out front of what could happen to their Party should Republicans choose to use their same dirty tactics. I guarantee you there’d be no hand-holding if the roles were reversed in this incident, only vicious attacks by the Left.
The bottom line is that Democrats in D.C. have become more of a danger to our country than terrorists. Their non-stop demonizing of everything that has to do with Trump, including attacks on his family that are completely immoral and unjustified, are grinding our country to a halt. It also has incited violence across the country with various riots especially towards the police. They’re creating a deep divide among U.S. citizens not over issues that are real, but over hyperbole.
If you are a Democrat I deplore you to contact your representatives and tell them to prioritize your interests. What are they doing towards creating jobs? What are they doing towards coming up with an alternative plan to Obama Care since it is crashing quickly? What are they doing with their budget proposals such as investment in infrastructure and how the money will be allocated to each state?
It appears the only thing your representatives are focusing on is getting rid of Trump. Is that why you sent them to D.C.? If it is, I hope you realize that Trump being gone won’t mean his agenda will go away. As a matter of fact, someone like Vice-President Mike Pence would accomplish the objectives even faster.
