One Week Later, the DNC Has Yet to Definitively Comment on Domestic Abuse Allegations Made Against Rep. Keith Ellison
The Democratic party never ceases to amaze when it comes to the degree to which they are capable of hypocrisy. If ever a pro-family conservative is accused of adultery or some other sexual impropriety, they treat us to weeks and weeks of feigned outrage as they delight in an example of someone on the right behind a hypocrite.
But whenever it is suggested that one of their own may be guilty of hypocrisy, they suddenly go silent.
Can you imagine the outrage if a conservative politician had been accused of violent domestic abuse? It would forever be used as ammunition against the entire Republican party by the left.
But when one of the most radical left, finger-wagging, brow-beating cultural Marxists is accused of domestic abuse, suddenly, it’s time to do some quiet soul-searching.
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has, so far, utterly failed to follow-up on their vow to fully investigate the allegations of violent domestic assault made against DNC deputy chair Keith Ellison after weakly stating they would do so.
The Daily Caller reports:
One week after the Democratic National Committee (DNC) announced it was “reviewing” domestic abuse allegations against Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison, the DNC has yet to provide the public with any updates on the allegations against him.Advertisement - story continues below
Ellison, the deputy chair of the DNC, is accused of physically and emotionally abusing his ex-girlfriend, liberal Sierra Club activist Karen Monahan. Ellison has vehemently denied Monahan’s allegations.
The DNC released a statement Aug. 14, just hours before Ellison locked up the party’s nomination for Minnesota attorney general, pledging to review the Ellison allegations, which the committee said “should be taken seriously.”
“These allegations recently came to light and we are reviewing them,” the DNC said in a statement, after initially remaining silent for 72 hours after the allegations came to light. “All allegations of domestic abuse are disturbing and should be taken seriously.”
From Bill Clinton to Anthony Weiner to Ted Kennedy, the Democrats have a long history of excusing the heinous abuse of women when it comes from their own party, as they unironically continue to paint themselves as the ultimate champions of women.
Monahan’s son, Austin, who first came forward with the allegations on August 11th, gave some insight into just how false this veneer of feminism is when it comes to politics:
“We watched her so called political friends stand by say or do nothing. People had an idea what happened and never reached out to my mom. The same people who are posting about social justice are ready to smear my mom, protect a person who abused her and broke the law.”
Well, there you have it.
