There are some issues that should be debated in public discourse.
Some of these issues include how to achieve:
- Universal and Affordable Health Care.
- Free College, Technical, and University Education for the nation’s children.
- A Comfortable Standard of Living for all citizens.
- Saving the Environment by shifting to Renewable Green Energy Sources.
- Comprehensive Immigration Reform.
There are also some issues that do not need to be debated in public discourse. These matters are so unchallenging that it bewilders the casual observer when people do not take a public stand on the subject.
The KKK endorsed candidates recent racist tweets against the four Congresswomen who represent “The Squad” is one such matter that does not require debate, in both the Republican and especially the Democratic Parties.
These tweets and subsequent comments should be universally condemned by all public servants regardless of their political party.
A Congressional Resolution that memorializes this condemnation should be voted on so the people know that the nation’s leaders have to be held to account for how they conduct themselves.
One resolution has been introduced for a vote.
Unfortunately, the great majority of the members of the deceased Party of Lincoln have not risen to the occasion.
Most have become mute, worrying about a political challenge during the primary season if they criticize the occupant in the Oval Office.
A few, like Senator Susan Collins, Senator Lisa Murkowski, Representatives Will Hurd, Representative Tom Cole, Representative Peter King, and Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker have stood up and spoken out against these loathsome remarks.
Unfortunately, other Republicans have tried to outdo their master.
Arizona Congressional District Five Representative Andy Biggs who have tried to shift the conversation to unfortunate families who have lost loved ones at the hands of illegal immigrants. What do these tragedies have to do with the Popular Vote Loser’s racist tweets and bombastic comments at the White House over the last two days?
Former John McCain soulmate Lindsey Graham showed his switch to the Dark Side of politics is complete by making the false accusations that the four ladies “are a bunch of communists … they’re anti-Semitic. They’re anti-America.”
These ladies are NOT communist or Anti-American for pointing out areas where our nation needs to be improved.
They are not Anti-Semitic (which is impossible for one of them because they have Semitic family origins) because they have issues with the extreme rightwing Israelis Government of Benjamin Netanyahu.
Even John McCain’s daughter, Meghan, was flabbergasted by Graham’s comments, saying “this is not the person I used to know.”
What is more concerning is that there are a few elected Democrats in states like Arizona that have not voiced their horror for what Individual One has said.
As of 7:26 p.m. on July 15, 2019, one of Arizona’s Democrat Congressional Representatives and its Senior Democratic Senator have not yet condemned the Liar in Chief’s racist comments.
WHAT IS TAKING SO LONG?
The other Democrats in Arizona’s Congressional Delegation (Anne Kirkpatrick, Ruben Gallego, Raul Grijalva, and Tom O’Halleran) have made their feelings known with universal disdain for the KKK candidates words.
What is taking so long for the other two?
There are no voters to alienate here. There is no electoral calculation to make.
The people who would be revolted by condemning the Popular Vote Loser’s tweets and subsequent remarks would not vote for those two anyway nor should these two currently silent public servants want the endorsement from those fringe individuals.
The people who did vote for these two Democrats do want to hear from them. They want to know that the people they voted for do find Individual One’s comments disgusting and beneath the office he holds.
There are some things that should be spoken out against and these racist tweets are one of them.
Senator Kyrsten Sinema and Representative Greg Stanton need to tell the people that voted for them where they stand on the KKK Candidates racist tweets against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib.
This is not Rocket Science.
