Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Soulless ghouls. – Last night, 44 of the 47 Senate Democrats voted against a bill designed to protect the lives of babies born into this world after failed attempts by abortionists to murder them while in the womb. The other three apparently didn’t have the courage to even show up and be counted. [Correction: Three Rs – Murkowski, Tim Scott and Kevin Cramer – voted against this bill, and 3 Ds – Doug Jones, Bob Casey and Joe Manchin – voted for it.] 44 soulless ghouls – including every one of the half-dozen or so Democrat senators running for the presidency. This is the state of your Democrat Party today. You can have it. Here is how the President responded to this sad event:
….This will be remembered as one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress. If there is one thing we should all agree on, it’s protecting the lives of innocent babies.

In 2002, a bill containing the same language was passed UNANIMOUSLY in the U.S. Senate.
If you’re a Democrat, are you proud of where your party is today? Understand that protecting the ability of abortion factories like Planned Parenthood to murder live born children (something they’ve allegedly been doing for many years) is the reason why Democrat politicians and pro-abortion activists have so viciously fought against bills in various states the last several years that would require the butchers who work at abortion factories to maintain operating rights at local hospitals.
These activists and politicians are so eager to keep murdering children – and that is what this is, outright murder – that they not only want to remove any responsibility on the part of the butchers to make the slightest effort to save a live-born child, they want to remove any possibility that they might be able to do so.
There have been so many horrifically low moments for the Democrat Party in recent years that it is now not humanly possible to catalog them all, but last night’s vote may represent an all-time nadir.
Time to stop giving Democrats a pass. – This brings me to a topic I’ve been stewing about for quite a while now. It’s an uncomfortable one for so many Republicans/conservatives because so many of us still have friends and family members who are Democrats, and it would require a change in a long-ingrained behavior on our part.
Simply put, we as a society simply must stop giving the Democrat Party a pass on all the rampant mendacity it creates and supports. Because conservatives have not radicalized over the last half-century like the Democrats have, we have been in the habit of pretending that our Democrat “friends” are not really responsible for all these horrible things – it’s always those other moving parts of the radical leftist movement who are doing all the damage to our society while the Democrat Party sits by innocently saying ‘tsk, tsk’ and clucking its collective tongue.
Whenever a bunch of Antifa goons cause a riot in some city in California or Oregon or anywhere else, our reaction is to point fingers at those specific radicals and the George Soros money that funds them. But George Soros and Antifa are nothing more or less than militant arms of the national Democrat Party – they are in fact inseparable and daily coordinating their efforts to destroy the foundations of our society. Like it did with the Ku Klux Klan in the wake of the Civil War, the Democrat Party literally created Antifa. George Soros would have no place to hide in our society if not for his Democrat Party enablers.
Whenever a mob of social justice warriors digitally assaults some poor slob on social media, our knee-jerk reaction is to point fingers at those “SJWs” as if they are some independent entity. But they all vote Democrat, folks – there are no Republican SJWs. It has been the radical policies pushed by the Democrat Party for the last half century that have perverted our education system and created all the SJWs and snowflakes in the first place. The Democrat Party did this, and anyone who votes for Democrats or runs for office as a Democrat is complicit and needs to be held responsible.
The same is true of the destruction of the profession of journalism and our nation’s news media over the last 50 years. That has all been done with the single focused goal of turning that profession and media establishment into nothing more than an American version of Pravda, the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party. The Democrats did this and need to be held accountable for it.
Trust me, I have been as guilty of making these distinctions without differences as anyone over the years. But over the past year I have made a conscious effort to stop that bad behavior.
Because make no mistake about it: Giving the Democrat Party a pass for all the horrific things it supports and does is very, very bad behavior. The Democrat Party is a festering and metastasizing cancer in our society, an existential threat to our nation’s future.
For every patient, the first step towards getting well is to accurately identify your problem. Only then can the proper treatment begin.
The Democrat Party is our nation’s problem. If the country is to ever begin to heal, we must stop giving it a pass for its chronic and ever-expanding mendacity.
That is all.
