President Trump Does Not Mince Words as He Responds to Calls for Harassment of His Staff

Published

on

There are many reasons President Trump was elected in 2016, but the biggest may just be his tendency to get right to the point.

Unlike other politicians, Trump says what he means and means what he says. He cuts right to the chase and rarely bothers with diplomatic language, and certainly doesn’t bother with political correctness.

So when his cabinet members faced discrimination and harassment last week, only to be followed up by Representative Maxine Waters actually calling for more harassment, he cut right to the case in a fundraising email, telling his supporters he would not allow this double-standard between Democrats and Republicans to go unaddressed.

Two days after Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters of California urged Americans to harass Trump officials in public, the Trump campaign issued a warning in the email Tuesdaynight.

The email, entitled “Harassment,” states:

“Sarah Huckabee Sanders was kicked out of a restaurant.

“[Homeland Security Secretary] Kirstjen Nielsen was harassed in her own home.

“Homeland Security staffers have been warned of ‘increased threats’ from the open borders mob.

“…And now Democrat Maxine Waters is calling for MORE HARASSMENT of the Silent Majority. The Left is trying to bully and buy their way back into power. Not on my watch. I will always stand up for you.”

The president said in the solicitation that Democrats are guilty of a double-standard.

“Can we finally admit the truth? Democrats only care about ‘equal rights’ if you’re a liberal,” he said.

Trump is speaking right to the hypocrisy and double-standard that have continuously been driving voters away from Democrats and caused so many Americans to resist the toxic philosophy of intersectional politics.

The left genuinely believes that if you disagree with someone, it is justifiable to treat them differently than you’d treat someone you disagree with.

Commentators like Ben Shapiro, Jordan Peterson, and Christina Hoff Sommers, themselves far from radical in any sense of the word, have experienced this first-hand on college campuses, where far-left students who consider their evidence-based conclusions about the world “hate speech”, openly justify using violence as a means of preventing their views from being heard.

This kind of thinking is spreading like cancer through the Democratic party, which is why, stunningly, there are still so many voters who are fully in favor of treating Republicans differently than they’d want to be treated.

We can’t sit idly by and allow this kind of mentality to continue to influence the left. There is a place for civil discourse and debate in our nation, and we can’t allow that to die.

Pelosi, Capitol Police Now Bickering Over ‘Orders’ to ‘Arrest’ the Mask-less

This is getting embarrassing for Nancy…

Thankfully, the latest COVID-19 stunt by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi only took a few hours to unravel this time around. Pelosi, who has been pushing the GOP’s buttons on mask mandates for months now, used the CDC’s recent guidance adjustment to bring the facial coverings back to the House floor.  This prompted protests from a great many Republicans, and Pelosi subsequently threatened to have the Capitol Police start arresting folks who wouldn’t comply. The Capitol Police were not exactly on board with that idea. https://twitter.com/CapitolPolice/status/1420810728387264517?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1420810728387264517%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Fcapitol-police-ordered-arrest-staff-visitors-not-wearing-masks A response from the speaker followed. Pelosi’s office said she did not order police to begin arresting people because it’s not within her power. “The speaker of the House does not control the U.S. Capitol Police,” Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill told Fox News.  “We were unaware of the memo until it was reported in the press.” The embarrassing incident comes amid a flurry of criticisms of Pelosi’s handling of the Congressional mask policy, and likely marks yet another milestone in the decline of Nancy Pelosi’s speakership.

Capitol Police Ordered to Arrest Those Who Refuse Mask Mandate

Is Pelosi exploiting the Capitol Police to antagonize the GOP?

The COVID-19 pandemic has once again become a major piece of the American political landscape in 2021, as a new variant of the once-waning virus now threatens to set back herd immunity by several months or more. And while this is certainly not good news, there are still concerns that the Democratic Party is still taking this whole thing a bit too seriously, possibly in an attempt to virtue-signal their way into the hearts of young liberals everywhere. Their latest militant maneuver is being slathered in criticism, however. U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) were ordered to start arresting visitors and staff who refuse to wear a mask on the House side of the Capitol complex starting Thursday, according to a police memo issued by new USCP Chief Thomas Manger that was obtained by a member of Congress. Police were also advised not to arrest members of Congress for failing to wear masks but to report the lawmakers’ noncompliance to the House sergeant-at-arms, the memo says. It didn’t take long for a backlash to erupt. Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., got a copy of the memo distributed at Thursday’s morning roll call from an unnamed police officer, she told Fox News. Police she’s spoken to are “very uncomfortable” with this new directive that Cammack describes as “tyrannical.” “This is such an overstep of Speaker Pelosi’s authority to basically make our Capitol Police arrest staff members and report on members [of Congress],” Cammack told Fox News Thursday. “It’s absolutely unconscionable that this is where we’re at.” The move comes just a day after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s comments on possible mask requirements prompted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to call him a “moron”.
