We all know that Democrats are the compassionate, caring, empathetic, and civil ones, and the Republicans are heartless, stone-cold, angry, and hateful. This is especially true when it comes to minorities. And we know this, because Democrats tell us, and since they’re compassionate and caring, we have to believe them, right?
Well, Bookworm at Right Wing News has put together a list that belies this propaganda conventional wisdom, and shows how Democrats really tend to act. It doesn’t seem to compassionate to me:
Democrats who don’t seem to like blacks very much:
Jim Moran (Congressman, Virginia): Manhandled an eight year old black boy and accused him of attempting to steal Moran’s campaign-subsidized car from the parking lot at a rec center.
Democrats who don’t seem to like the American military very much:
John Kerry (Senator, Massachusetts): Said the following of his fellow American troops: “They told the stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country.” Time did not mellow his views. More than 30 years later, he “joked” that, if students didn’t work hard in school, “you get stuck in Iraq.”
Democrats who don’t seem to like America very much:
Chris Coons (Senator, Delaware): Considering that America is the bastion of liberty and capitalism, his ongoing attachment to Marxism bespeaks a man who dislikes America’s core values.
Dennis Kucinich (Congressman, Ohio): A cozy, decades-long relationship with the Communist party.
Bob Bowman (Democratic nominee for Representative, 2006, Florida): A Truther.
Democrats who don’t seem to like Jews very much:
Joe Sestak (Senator, Pennsylvania): I don’t have specific links, just a career long decade of anti-Israel animus, summed up in this article.
Jim Moran (Congressman, Virginia): Blamed the Iraq war on the “Jewish lobby.” Accused former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon of coming to Washington to get President Bush’s permission to use American-funded weapons to “kill at will.”
Democrats who don’t seem to like the handicapped very much:
Bob Reilly (Assembly, New York): This one is so embarrassing, as Reilly imitates a speech impaired young man, that I’m almost loath to include it here, but it deserves recognition for an example of the disgusting way in which Democrats demean the handicapped, whom they consider a locked-in constituency.
Barack Obama (President): In an unfortunate, and manifestly unpracticed, attempt at humility, Barack Obama slams the Special Olympics.
Democrats who don’t seem to like women very much:
Barack Obama (President): Obama has been silent on the subject lately, but early in his presidency he seemed unusually obsessed with the merits of enveloping women in hijabs. What gives with that?
Democrats who openly boast about spending other people’s money:
Jim Moran (Congressman, Virginia): Boasted that, if he became chairman of the House appropriations subcommittee, he intended to “earmark the sh*t out of it.”
Democrats who think “rules, what rules?”
Alcee Hastings (Congressman, Florida): “There are no rules. We make ‘em up as we go along.”
Jim Moran (Congressman, Virginia): After attacking the Catholic church based upon its stand regarding homosexuality, changed the wording of his statement in the Congressional Record, an act forbidden by House rules.
Democrats who can’t keep their fists to themselves:
Cynthia McKenney (Ex-Congresswoman, Georgia): Got into a physical scuffle with Capitol police when she tried to enter Congress without id.
Charlie Wilson (Congressman, Ohio): Repeatedly beat his wife until she collapsed.
Bob Etheridge (Congressman, North Carolina): Assaulted two young men trying to ask him questions on a public sidewalk.
Jim Moran (Congressman, Virginia): Has admitted, as a former boxer, that he likes to hit people, something that is okay within the realms of the boxing ring or MMS cage. Moran’s problem is that he can’t keep that urge confined to sports. At a bar fight in 1988, one of the witnesses was so frightened by Moran (who was then mayor of Alexandria), he stated “I realized I was looking into the eyes of a madman.” Moran has also attacked a fellow congressman on the floor of the House itself. Not content with just hitting people, Moran also likes violent threats, as when he screamed at Republican Rep. Dan Burton “I’ll break your nose.”
