Democrat Who Became Punchline Makes Unforgivable Holocaust Statement

Unacceptable.

Howard Dean

At one point in our not so distant past, we would look to Washington DC with reverence.  We saw our elected officials are something more than the sum of their parts, having been selected through a grueling and taxing process that would only see our best and brightest sent to the Capitol to keep this nation on its path to greatness.

Nowadays…not so much.

In this 21st century, Washington is just Hollywood East, but with far more disconcerting effects on the nation at large.  The drama, the in-fighting, and the hyperbole is almost comical at this point…at least until it isn’t.

Such is the case this week, as former Democratic Presidential candidate and perpetual progressive punchline Howard Dean makes an unconscionable comparison on MSNBC.

Dean said, “The truth is we’re not going to get everything we want, and Clyburn was exactly right. We need to focus on the half-full glass and go get some more. I’ve been in politics most of my life. You don’t get everything you want the first time. You get what you can get and go back and get the rest. You keep going and keep going and keep going. That’s point one.”

He continued, “Point two is, I am impatient with Democratic voters who are being discouraged. This is your country. If you don’t want to fight for it, that’s your business. But if you don’t want to vote and keep the democratic majority, from these neo-fascists on the Republican side like Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley, that is not on the Republicans, that’s on you.”

Then came the immoral metaphors.

Dean added, “This really parallels what happens in Germany in between the wars when Hitler took power. I don’t want to compare Trump to Hitler, although there are some similarities. But the truth is, voters have to not be apathetic. It was apathy as much as anti-Semitism that led to the Holocaust. People just turned a blind eye. Get out there and fight. If you think this country is important, you better get out there and vote and then don’t blame the Democrats after the fact if you haven’t gone out to vote and you get some crackpot in the presidency that wants to take away your vote.”

The Anti-Defamation League and other pro-Jewish organizations have forcefully and repeatedly demanded that there be no comparisons made between The Holocaust and modern events, as it hastens our desensitization toward the abhorrent event.

The left, in their quest to defame Donald Trump, simply cannot heed this warning.

NEW NATO NARRATIVE: Ukraine Can ‘Win’ War with Russia

Know one would have even considered the possibility 3 months ago.

Published

Well that is one heck of a turnaround, eh?

We’ve gone from watching Russia amass an enormous fighting force on the borders of Ukraine, (all while telling the world that it was all routine and to butt out), to watching those same tanks and personnel roll into the sovereign neighboring nation, all the while worried that Russia would simply steamroll Kyiv and take the whole country for itself in a matter of days.

Nearly three months later, and that story is changing…and dramatically.

Ukrainian forces say they have pushed back the Russian military in the region around Kharkiv in northeastern Ukraine, and near the border with Russia, continuing a counteroffensive that has prompted Russian troops to withdraw from around Ukraine’s second-largest city.

Then came a surprising suggestion.

NATO’s Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said Sunday that “Ukraine can win this war” following an informal meeting of the group. His comments came after Finland announced it would apply to join the military alliance in what marks a historic move for the traditionally neutral Nordic country.

Joining the military alliance will “maximize” Finland’s security after Russia’s unprecedented invasion of Ukraine in February, President Sauli Niinisto said.

Sweden is expected to follow suit with both applications likely to enflame tensions between NATO and Russia further. Moscow warned last week of “retaliatory steps” if Finland joined the alliance.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is drinking the proverbial Kool-Aid as well, having claimed that Eurovision will be able to hold its enormous, annual songwriting competition in Mariupol next year.

Biden Approval Crashes Again, This Time to Historic Low

This is just sad at this point.

Published

Look around your country.  See the struggle in real time.  Watch how hard it is for the rest of this nation to get to where they need to be, every day, and ask yourself “why does it need to be like this?”.

And then realize that all of this trouble is coming to America in what was supposed to be the launching months of a new “roaring twenties”; as COVID faded and the economy roared back to life, America was poised to be a global show for the ages.

Instead, the last year and a half have been filled to the brim with turmoil and strife and not much nice.

US President Joe Biden is taking his lumps on account of it.

An NBC News poll released Sunday shows Biden’s job approval rating has plunged to a fresh low, with just 39 percent of Americans approving of the job he’s doing and 56 percent disapproving.

This was a new milestone for the reluctant leader.

Those numbers represents the lowest mark of his presidency.

Inflation, the economy and border security are the three main areas where voters see Biden failing them. The overall cost of living is standing as the public’s top issue.

Biden’s approval rating has experienced a few brief reprieves over the course of his presidency, but has continued on a steady decline almost from the start.
