Another Week of Democrats Behaving Badly

Another Week of Democrats Behaving Badly

Booker and Walsh and Hoyer, oh my!

This has been a particularly troubling week for Democrats’ bad behavior on display for the public.

First, as Professor Jacobson reported yesterday, a plagiarizing national Democrat politician had to step aside (no, not Joe Biden). But Walsh is just the tip of the iceberg for Democrats this week.

Probably the most shocking and disturbing behavior was from Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) who is the second most powerful Democrat in Congress.

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer made an attempt at humor over his title Wednesday by telling an audience at the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit that he does not “whip people.”

“First of all, let me tell my friends from Africa, I do not whip people,” the Maryland Democrat told the crowd, receiving muffled laughs. “And if you watch ‘House of Cards,’ it is not accurate.”

Wednesday’s event, titled “Dialogue with African CEOs,” was hosted by the Congressional Black Caucus, The Daily Caller reported.

Mr. Hoyer’s speech covered initiatives meant to boost economic growth in Africa.

Imagine, if you will, if the House Republican Whip had made such a joke. MSNBC would be having a serious of aneurysms and Think Progress would have the torches and pitchforks out for the next six months. But the Hoyer “joke” hasn’t made the mainstream media at all. Shocking, right?

But let’s not allow Walsh and Hoyer to have all of the fun this week. Enter a staffer of U.S. Senator Cory Booker, Democrat from New Jersey.

One staffer in Cory Booker’s Senate office has a message for his opponent: “Suck it.”

That’s certainly at odds with Booker’s reputation for politeness and collegiality, but when Booker’s opponent, the former Reagan-administration official Jeff Bell, circulated my piece this morning, he got a response from Nichole Sessego, a Booker staffer who runs his (robust) digital operation. “JEFF BELL CAN SUCK IT,” Sessego wrote. The e-mail was apparently intended for somebody else: Sessego noted that she’d already seen the piece “in the clips,” a reference to the news articles routinely circulated in Senate offices.

As the National Review points out, Booker does have a reputation for politeness and playing well with others — including Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY).

And you know, Congressional staffers are young and can be stupid. But there seems to be a notable pattern emerging: The Obama Era is crumbling and Democrats of all stripes are becoming panicked, mean and reckless.

More popcorn, please!

The panic among Democrats is what leads me to believe that Obama is going to go through with his incredibly illegal immigration amnesty.

He’s basically going to say, “Fuck it. We already lost the election, I’m going to import 10 million voters for 2016.”

    Obama can grant all the amnesty he wants, it cannot change the law and only applies to past crimes, not future ones. Those here illegally who accept an “amnesty” still won’t have a legal right to be or work here.

    He has no power to grant anyone citizenship or voting rights, period.

Most white Democrats are wealthy elitists and horrible racists in private.

Stoyer’s joke fell flat because the African potentates in the Obama-invited audience include most of the worst human rights abusers on the continent. They did omit Mugabe, but several of those in attendance are as bad or worse, just less well known in America.

    ALLLLLL Collectivists…of any color…tend to be what you describe. Elitist and racist. And they aren’t even artful about it.

    If you are ever in New Orleans and can overhear the conversation in the chic eateries there, you’ll hear a remarkable thing; wealthy black people talking race smack about their poor fellow black people.

Actually the joke is on Hoyer. The term party whip actually does come from the implement.

Democrats behaving badly? When have they behaved goodly?

House Minority Whip Democrat Steny Hoyer’s “I do not whip people” comment at the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit is truly Biden-esque. Steny IS whipping up support, though, for his pop culture creditability among a group of Africans who I would gather came to hear the best and brightest of America and to hear what America has to offer the African people.

What America has to offer is… Steny Hoyer, a Joe Biden stand in and Barry “We need to do more (golf)” Soetoro.

Barry’s surrogate wife Michelle, you will recall, held up a hand written sign on Twitter to show her cow-eyed ‘concern’ and to ‘invoke’ the sympathies of millions of her cross-eyed followers in the very ‘real’ emo of “hope and change:”

Boko Haram would, of course, read the heart wrenching tweet (It is important to remember that liberals do not think mankind is capable of evil. For them, only institutions are capable of evil ergo liberals need more tax dollars to tweet more often, play golf and dispose of hard drives), …Boko Haram would of course read the heart wrenching tweet, do some soul searching and then relent. Maybe Michelle should also tweet out to Assad, Hamas, ISIS, Putin, NK – to all the murderous bad guys for ‘real “hope and change” to occur.

More pop culture from ‘above. Michelle trumped Steny with her pop culture promo: the cyber Twitter ‘promotion’ was meant to provoke the return of the hundreds of AFRICAN girls who had been kidnapped, raped, tortured and God knows what other evil had been done to them in the name of Allah and Islam. That is what black America has to offer Africa.

(An aside: Do you really think we should become like the rest of the pop culture addicts so as to engage them at their stupor-eyed level?)

Did Col. Allen West speak or did Thomas Sowell? Did any conservative black man or woman speak at this Empty Fest?

Perhaps America can now be called the “Dark Continent” because its people have grown dark in their understanding.

(FYI: The One TRUE God IS Great, Islam is NOT related to that God.)

    Very well said. You are a gifted writer, in my humble opinion. I am in complete agreement that copying pop culture in order to engage them is essentially like giving the inmates of an insane asylum charge over their treatment and then wondering why no one gets better.
    Without the light of the One True God the world will continue it spiral into self-destruction as the enemies of civilizational (Islam and liberal progressives) force the rest of the world to submit.
