Have I written a lot about Impeachment lately? No. Do I know WHY the Democrats want to impeach Trump? Sure – doesn’t everyone? The Democrats started this drum beat the day after he was elected – How DARE HE! WE should own that seat but because of that pesky Constitutional thingie about the 50 States holding their singular Presidential elections, the Hillary would have won (God help us all!). All kinds of reasons have been put forward but the most truthful one, last uttered by Princess AOC herself, is that if Trump isn’t impeached, he’ll be reelected.
By any means necessary – playing politics by MMA rules.
But this has got to be the nuttiest reason of all (reformatted, emphasis mine):
New Reason: Democratic Representative Says We Must Impeach Donald Trump in Order to Undo the Impact of Slavery
…As if that weren’t enough, on Saturday, Democratic Texas Representative Al Green provided an additional Why for the Commander-in-Chief’s utter yanking: We have to make up for slavery…
…“I do believe, ma’am, that we have to deal with the original sin. We have to deal with slavery. Slavery was the thing that put all of what President Trump has done lately into motion. It’s insidious…racism. The President has played on racism, and he’s used that as a weapon to galvanize a base of support to mobilize people.”…
…“So I appreciate whatever we will do, but until we deal with the issue of invidious discrimination as it relates to [the] LGBTQ community, the anti-Semitism, the racism, the Islamophobia, the transphobia, and also the misogyny that he has exemplified, I don’t think our work is done.”
It’s like all of the Democrat identity politic group totem pole is being wrapped up in a ball (just go with me for a bit on this metaphor) and tossed at him. The way Green (not exactly the brightest bulb in Congress but that’s what his electorate decided – representation by nitwits) sees it – EVERY ill that the Democrats have nailed to the wall by the Cultural Marxism techniques of group politics and “intersectionality” by which there will never be any firm or absolute values are being weaponized. Trump is considered to be the Great Satan (er, what happened to Bush I, Bush II, Reagan, Nixon…you get the picture: same name, different people, same sins. Ad infinitum).
Seriously though – Trump must be punished / impeached because of slavery? Yeah, I could see Green all gung ho on this – a metaphorical Cross of shame.
But tell me this – if Trump pays the “ultimate” price for slavery just because of his “whiteness”, does that mean that the rest of us “of pallor” will now be forgiven of our immutable characteristic of skin color?
Or will it just go on and on simply because the Left, once bitten off its pound of flesh for sins of though, always comes back for dessert? Just look what happens when someone unknowingly violates the Left’s Canon of Sins and apologizes – the Left turns into wolves and doesn’t let go until everything is rent from the bones.
And doesn’t stop there – NO apology is ever enough and each succeeding one merely serves as a signal for more.
No, Trump may be the first one to be “impeached for slavery” but EVERY Republican will now be threatened by it as well even as Green certainly is the definition of a nitwit.
Don’t doubt me that if not Green, someone down the line will say it about someone else. It’s in their toolkit and it will be used.
