Democrat Candidate for Maryland Governor Asked Question About Socialism And He Explodes

Published

on

Ben Jealous, the former president of the NAACP and the current Democratic candidate for governor in the state of Maryland was recently asked a question about socialism by a reporter. Apparently, this was a really big no-no and Jealous — what an ironic name for a politician — exploded all over the guy.

Unfortunately for him, the whole incident was caught on tape and is now working its way around the Internet. Guess he might want to consider signing up for a few anger management classes to get a hold of that temper.

Jealous was taking questions from the media when Washington Post reporter Erin Cox asked him to comment on the statement from his Republican competitor, incumbent Larry Hogan, calling him a socialist.

“Governor Hogan and the RGA have made a significant amount of effort and investment in trying to paint you as a socialist, they’ve actually called you a socialist,” Cox asked. “What is your response to first the term socialist, whether you embrace and identify to any degree, and secondly the charge about whether the state can afford you?”

“Him calling me a far-left socialist, that’s what the Tea Party called President Obama, it’s what Barry Goldwater called Martin Luther King,” Jealous responded to the reporter. “And when you see conservatives like Hogan name-calling, you realize that they’re scared.”

“That they’re frankly afraid of the change now all of our families need – we need a more inclusive and robust economy.”

After a long statement from Jealous defending himself as a venture capitalist, the reporter reiterated her question.

“Not to put too fine a point on it, but do you identify with the term socialist?” she asked.

“Are you f***ing kidding me?!” exclaimed Jealous. “Is that a finer point?”

Here’s the full video of Jealous going off the deep end:

Jealous, in full damage control mode, later issued a full apology for his inappropriate behavior via a post on Twitter:

At this point in the race, Jealous has a 14 point lead over his opponent, so things are still looking good for the guy despite his nasty blow up.

Politics is a stressful game and if you don’t possess oodles of self-control, it might be a wise idea to try and create the change you want to see in the country another way. As we’ve seen lately, the words you speak carelessly now can come back to haunt you later.

Then again, leftists have never been known for having outstanding emotional control.

GOP Rep. Blows the Doors Off Russia Probe, Says HAIR-RAISING Info Is About to Drop [Watch]

HERE WE GO…

GOP Rep. Mark Meadows dropped a bomb Friday night on Fox News’ “Hannity.” No need to beat around the bush. Let’s get right down to it… From Daily Wire: Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) told Fox News on Thursday night that the reason that Democrats are reacting with anger over President Donald Trump’s decision to declassify information from the Russia investigation is that they know what explosive information is about to come out that will make many of them look bad. Meadows noted, “I can tell you, there’s information coming that will curl your hair. I can tell you that the reason why it’s so visceral — the response from the Democrats is so visceral right now is because they know — they’ve seen documents. Adam Schiff has seen documents that he knows will actually put the finger pointing back at him and his Democrat colleagues, not the President of the United States. And so that’s why you’re seeing it.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1132053108559769601?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132053108559769601&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F47666%2Fmeadows-declassifying-russia-investigation-info-ryan-saavedra Soon enough, the entire world will know the origins of “spying” on the 2016 Trump campaign. Also, how the whole Russia conspiracy fiasco became a thing. Trump tweeted out the following… “Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities…. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1131716322369392646?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131716322369392646&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhuge-trump-gives-ag-barr-complete-authority-to-declassify-info-on-russia-probe-origins%2F ….during the 2016 Presidential election.

HERE WE GO: Far-Left Dem Rashida Tlaib Is Promoting Movement Designed to Destroy Israel

Isn’t that special!?

If Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) isn’t making headline news, it’s fellow freshman Democrat Ilhan Omar (MN). If it’s not Omar, it’s Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib (MI). Today belongs to the woman who draped herself in the Palestinian flag after winning her election last November. In case you live under a rock, Tlaib has made it abundantly clear that she isn’t the biggest fan of Israel. From Daily Wire: Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) promoted the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement on Thursday which is designed to destroy Israel. Tlaib retweeted a tweet from a far-left Democrat activist that goes by the name “Rasha” on Twitter. https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1132062158911549441?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132062158911549441&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F47669%2Fdemocrat-rashida-tlaib-promotes-anti-semitic-ryan-saavedra The tweet featured a video of NYU commencement speaker Steven William Thrasher who promoted the anti-Semitic movement at the school’s graduation this month. Thrasher noted, “I am so proud, so proud, of NYU’s chapters of Students for Justice in Palestine and Jewish Voices for Peace, for supporting the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement against the apartheid state government in Israel.” You know how Americans hijacked multiple planes on September 11, 2001 before crashing them into large buildings and murdering upwards of 3,000 people? That’s because Americans were not behind the attack that forever changed the world. Tlaib, known for lodging her foot directly between her lips, says she was “really afraid” of her “fellow Americans” after 9/11. You can’t make this up. From The Blaze: Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) says that she was “afraid” of Americans in the days following the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Tlaib: “I was probably my second year in law school when 9/11 happened. And I was — I was really terrified of what was going to happen to my husband, who’s only a green card holder at the time.” She added, “I immediately called my brothers and told them…
