Richard Cordray Getting Smashed by Veterans For Comments About Republicans And Trump Administration

Published

Military veterans from the state of Ohio are none too happy with Democrat Richard Cordray, who is running for governor of the state, after he made comments comparing Republicans and the Trump administration to Nazis.

Isn’t it ironic the left continually throws out the Nazi card against conservatives, yet the very ideals espoused by many Nazis are actually pillars of the progressive platform? It’s very humorous in a dark sort of way.

Military veterans condemned Ohio Democrat Richard Cordray, a current candidate for governor, in a new ad for his comparisons of the Trump administration and Republicans to Nazis.

Cordray twice made the comparison during campaign events.

The ad, released this week by the Ohio Republican Party, shows World War II veterans Vincent Francioli and Bill Herdman calling Cordray’s rhetoric “100 percent wrong.”

“Richard Cordray is not capable of governing the state of Ohio,” Herdman said.

“A leader doesn’t say anything like that,” Francioli said.

“You don’t go out and compare the White House with Nazi Germany,” Herdman said.

“That’s absolutely, 100 percent wrong,” Francioli said.

“Richard Cordray needs to apologize for that sort of rhetoric,” Herdman said.

The Cordray campaign has said he regrets making the comparison, claiming he was only repeating others’ comments. A coalition of three elected Republicans who are also veterans–Perrysburg City Councilman Haraz N. Ghanbari, Franklin County Auditor Clarence Mingo, and Franklin County Auditor Brian Stewart–have all called for an apology from Cordray.

It’s really well past time for the left in this country to use some of that creative passion burning in their bones to come up with some brand new insults instead of the same old tired spiel. Nazis and racism are tired tropes and untrue stereotypes that have been debunked time and again.

Guys, get some new material. Perhaps, if it doesn’t tax you all too much, try actually engaging the issues instead of name calling, putting together solid arguments supported by facts that can be presented on the battlefield of ideas.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

Kid Suicides, Mental Health Hospitalizations Surge Worse than Coronavirus During Lockdowns

Kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns.

New research has found that kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns themselves. Kids ended up dying of suicides and being hospitalized for mental health illnesses at a high rate, according to a new study. Once again, we see that this “cure” was far worse than virus ever was, especially for young people. Per Just the News: Jeanne Noble, director of COVID response in the UCSF emergency department, is finishing an academic manuscript on the mental health toll on kids from lockdown policies. She shared a presentation on its major points with Just the News. Suicides in the Golden State last year jumped by 24% for Californians under 18 but fell by 11% for adults, showing how children were uniquely affected by “profound social isolation and loss of essential social supports traditionally provided by in-person school,” the presentation says. Children requiring emergency mental health services jumped last year in Children’s Hospital of Oakland, and children’s hospitalizations for eating disorders more than doubled at UCSF Children’s Hospital. In January, the latter’s emergency department (ED) at Mission Bay hit a record for “highest proportion of suicidal children in ER” at 21%. The study authors charged that the CDC is bringing serious harm to children with its coronavirus policies. Just the News added that kids are facing more than the virus. They are also facing an “atrophy” of the interpersonal skills because of masks and lost school time, and they are suffering great bouts of depression. It is even harder on teens, especially those close to graduation, because they face a stymied start to college, or their careers. This also brings severe depression.
