If it seems like the Democrats hit a new low every day you haven’t seen anything yet. Today the Democrats take over the House and finally have some power to fight back at Trump’s agenda.
They only have the house so they will most probably overplay their hand and early comments from Nancy Pelosi point to that already happening – she is already talking impeach and indict.
But the real low point came down in Georgia when Rep. Hank Johnson stunned even the hardened cynics with a cheap and horrific political speech.
“Americans elected an authoritarian, an anti-immigrant, racist strongman to the nation’s highest office,” Johnson said.
“Donald Trump and his ‘Make America Great Again’ followers who want to return American back to a time where white men and white privilege were unchallenged, and where minorities and women were in their place.”
“Donald Trump supporters are older, less educated, less prosperous, and they are dying early,” Johnson continued.
“Their lifespans are decreasing, and many are dying from alcoholism, drug overdoses, liver disease, or simply a broken heart caused by economic despair.”
“Charismatic and a good public speaker, deceptive, and cunning, Adolf Hitler rose to power to lead Germany in 1932 after Democratic elections,” Johnson said.
“He rode a wave of nationalism and anti-Semitism to power. Replace anti-Semitism with ‘all Latinos crossing our borders are rapists, drug dealers, and murderers,’ does that sound familiar?”
“Much like how Hitler took over the Nazi party, Trump has taken over the Republican party,” Johnson added.
“Hitler was accepting of violence toward the achievement of political objectives. Trump encouraged violence against protesters at his rallies, and his messaging about Charlottesville, that there were bad people on both sides, sent a powerful message of approval to the far right racists in America.”
“Americans, particularly black Americans, can’t afford to make that same mistake about the harm that could be done by a man named Hitler or a man named Trump.”
