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.

Hypocrisy regarding Omar's remarks?

Really now GOP, really?

GOP 2016: Carson Labors Over His Fetal Tissue Use

When you adorn a mask (pun unintended) and take on a facade of a crusader, one should make sure the crusading horse does not step in its own poop.

GOP hypocrisy is ugly and without rational explanation. When the GOP adopts abortion as it singular social issue for 2016, the party should perform a bit of internal reflection and probing to ensure the strategy is void of hypocrisy.

Ben Carson's ranking atop the 17 contender for the GOP nomination may suffer a bit as revelations of his use of fetal tissue, comes to the light of hypocrisy.

GOP Voter Fraud! DOJ to Monitor

Voter Fraud Watch Saturday,  E-Day Minus 2.....

I. Roxanne Rubin, Nevada Republican, Arrested For Allegedly Trying To Vote Twice

II. Last-Minute Ohio Directive Could Trash Legal Votes And Swing The Election

III. Oregon Department of Justice investigating potential ballot tampering at Clackamas County Elections Office

.......The tampering "was a Republican effort," and Lehan's campaign is considering asking the Secretary of State's Office to step in and run the election, said Chris Edmonds, Lehan's campaign manager
From the Andrew Breitbart and Fox News attacks on ACORN through years of GOP hypocrisy on voter fraud, to current voter suppression efforts the GOP is showing it is not a political party of a democratic nation (or for that matter a republic). It is clearly the party of a wanton plutocracy with tendencies towards early the early stages of totalitarianism. The Republican Party is working to steal elections comparable to the criminal efforts by Richard Nixon and his C.R.E.E.P Team. 

The party has actually convinced millions of its sycophantic minions that the Left might attempt to perpetrate voter fraud. They have done so while so clearly perpetrating voter fraud it is impossible for me to avoid thinking it is a sanctioned strategy. 

Apparently, the Department of Justice has listened and is dispatching voting officials to 23 of the 50 states.

I am waiting for the day when one of these criminals admits to being paid with the money trial leading back to the RNC or GOP operatives.
