GOP Hypocrisy Is Shameful




As  Republican politicians labor to politically leverage an ill-advised remark for a newly elected Democrat, Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN), let's again approach the Republican scorn from a position of askance or "frowning" inquiry.

The Minnesota Congresswoman posted a Twitter comment this past Sunday: (paraphrased) "...that American political leaders’ support for Israel is “all about the Benjamins...” The Benjamins? One hundred dollar bills, for those who may not have caught the colloquialism. The implications of political support for Israel based in dollars. Anti-Semitic? Well......  Let's state inappropriate and consumed by Democrat Party leadership. The remarks were followed with an "unequivocal" apology from Omar.

The Democrat Party react to Omar as expected and in a totally appropriate manner. What about Republicans?  Well, now we place a large spread of hypocrisy on the Republican political sandwich. 

In December of 2015, Donald Trump delivered a speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition.  The speech included the following three possible Anti-Semitic remarks:
  • "Stupidly, you want to give money. ...You're not going to support me because I don't want your money."
  • "I'm a negotiator, like you folks."
  • "Is there anyone in this room who doesn't negotiate deals? Probably more than any room I've ever spoken."
If the words don't drive home a point about hypocrisy, how about an MSNBC Morning Joe video segment from earlier today? The salient part of the 11-minute video is at the 1:50 mark and ends around the 4:00-minute mark. The remainder of the video is everyday chatter and probably not worth the time sent in finishing the full video.



While House leadership stripped a committee seat from the GOP's to the racist representative from Iowa, it is worthwhile to not Donald Trump never spoke on word about Steve King's over-the-top racist remarks. As for the stopping of his committee seat, King has a long history of racist remarks which surely has solidified his pale in US white supremacy.

Example:

Hypocrisy regarding Omar's remarks?



Really now GOP, really?
