Democrat Senate Candidate From Iowa Taking Thousands Of Dollars From Corporate-Funded PACs

Published

It’s clear at this point that when it comes to hypocrisy, the radical left in the United States knows absolutely no bounds. However, that this is a known fact does not lessen the anger it stirs in the hearts of genuine patriots to see these individuals pushing destructive principles on our country that they themselves won’t abide by, proving they know these are bad ideas.

Iowa Democratic Senate candidate Theresa Greenfield is the latest in a long line of up and coming left-wing hypocrites to be exposed for what they truly are. Greenfield has benefited from taking hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash from corporate special interests, despite the fact she has campaigned hard against allowing money to be a big influence in politics.

Look up “hypocrisy” in the dictionary and this woman’s picture will be the official entry for its meaning.

The Iowa Democrat has accepted nearly $200,000 in campaign contributions from leadership PACs bankrolled by corporations. Greenfield received $30,000 from PACs affiliated with senators Gary Peters (D., Mich.), Debbie Stabenow (D., Mich.), and Kyrsten Sinema (D., Ariz.)—groups that have accepted more than $1 million in corporate PAC contributions, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Those donations have helped Greenfield bombard Iowa’s airwaves with advertisements calling for campaign finance reform. Greenfield claimed in a June 19 ad that she does not take corporate PAC money, saying she does not “think politicians should put corporate interests ahead of you.”

In addition to leadership PAC money, Greenfield has benefited from millions in corporate PAC money through outside groups supporting her bid to unseat Sen. Joni Ernst (R.). Senate Majority PAC, a Chuck Schumer-aligned group backed by corporations and liberal billionaires, has spent nearly $7 million on ads supporting Greenfield. When fellow Iowa Democrat Mike Franken criticized Greenfield for benefiting from ads funded by “lobbyists and corporate PACS and Bain Capital and businesses” as well as “dark money,” Greenfield dismissed the attack as “Republican talking points.” Schumer has pledged to spend at least $13.1 million in Iowa this year.

Quite a few Democratic candidates have supposedly renounced the taking of corporate PAC money as they take on GOP incumbents, but apparently this pledge is more of a symbolic gesture than a principle they plan to abide by. In fact, corporate PACs don’t typically give money directly to candidates running for office. The money is usually funneled to lawmakers currently in office.

Leadership PACs allow Democrats to have a workaround in the system, enabling them to collect corporate funds from an indirect source. According to a 2019 report, Greenfield led all Democratic Senate challengers in leadership PAC funds.

Greenfield has also opened her greedy paws to accept almost $50,000 in campaign contributions from lobbyists, another aspect of politics liberals decry out of one corner of their mouths, while giving thanks for the cashflow out of the other.

What’s strange is that Greenfield continues to decry money in politics, all the while accepting these donations from people like Jeffrey Forbes. There’s no answer from her campaign on the hypocrisy of this course of action.

Why would there be? To liberals, whatever is necessary to win is acceptable. Even if it means violating every principle you hold. It’s all just a means to an end.

WATCH: College Students Not Cheering for Team USA in Olympics Because America is Evil

A recent video of students at the University of South Florida found that many of them aren’t rooting for Team USA.

A recent video of students at the University of South Florida found that many of them aren’t rooting for Team USA at the Olympics simply because they hate America. This is what our schools are teaching our kids to think, folks. From the lowest to the highest grades, our system of miseducation is teaching kids that America is evil and not worth supporting. Some of these woke, anti-American students spoke to Campus Reform ahead of the opening ceremony of the Wokeyo Olympics. And they said they won’t be watching because America isn’t worth rooting for. These privileged, hate-filled leftists said that they aren’t rooting for America: “I’m not going to be rooting for any team just because it’s some country that I live in…because the truth is, patriotism shouldn’t be that strong,” one student said. Another student said, “if you would’ve asked me in the last administration, maybe not.” Students also told Jacobson that they believed athletes should be able to protest during the Olympic Games and that U.S. athletes have no duty to represent the country in a positive light. One student said, “they have a duty to represent their country athletically, but they don’t have any obligation to represent it good or bad.” “I’m not proud to live in a country where I can’t even go down in my own neighborhood [without seeing] people putting up their Blue Lives Matter flags telling me that my life doesn’t matter,” another student said. “Given what’s been going on with this country and how divided our politics have been, there’s not really a reason to stand for one within the country, anyways,” a student exclaimed.

Wokesters Now Say You are a Racist if You Fear Pit Bull Dogs

In today’s episode of “You Stinkin’ Racist,” woke fanatics are now saying you are a racist if you fear the dangerous pit bull dog. The leftist activists at the Animal Farm Foundation recently declared that you are a racist if you fear pit bulls because the pit bull is “the black man’s dog” since it is popular with blacks. The non-profit claims that it is “dedicated to securing equal treatment and opportunity for pit bull dogs and their owners,” and aims to fight against “exclusionary dog breed restrictions in the housing insurance industry.” In other words, the group wants to smooth the way for pit bulls and their owners. The group also relies heavily on a “study” by Harvard Law School’s Ann Linder who wrote a paper titled “The Black Man’s Dog: The Social Context of Breed Specific Legislation.” Linder says that the pit bull has been “gang violence by urban youths, as well as the hip-hop music scene.” However, the pit bull has a bad reputation because it is a dangerous animal. Campus Reform pointed out that pit bulls represent about 6.5% of all dogs in the United States, yet the breed was responsible for 66% of total fatal dog attacks between 2005 and 2017. Oh, but it’s all about racism, you see. You don’t fear pit bulls because the breed is powerful and dangerous. No, you fear pit bulls because you are a racist. The left is never happy unless it is re-fashion reality to its fantasy world. Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
