Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has been less than stellar in her media appearances since she took on the mantle as head of the DNC, last Spring. I’ve covered some of her more risible moments here at Nice Deb. This interview with Gretchen Carson on Fox and Friends was her most pathetic performance to date, as she steadfastly refused to answer Gretchen Carson’s question, opting to jibber about jobs, instead. Note the nervous laughter, and “Are you kidding me?”
No ma’am, we’re not kidding. What happened to the new tone?
It was clear, yesterday, when the President failed to distance himself from James Hoffa’s unhinged Labor Day rhetoric, that the Democratic party as a policy, was condoning, (even encouraging) violent anti-tea party speech. His speech wasn’t, after all, any worse than the anti-teaparty rhetoric we’ve been hearing for the past several weeks from Democratic congressmen. The Democrat party has apparently declared war on the tea party, and is using copious amounts of class-war, race-war, violent anti-teaparty rhetoric….but to what ends? To inspire the more violent, and unhinged members of the left-wing mobs to wreak havoc? They know that “Days of Rage” protests are planned September 17 in New York City…..is that the sort of rhetoric they want the left hearing right before they attempt to “occupy Wall Street”? Liberals love to talk about “dog whistles”…I think what we’ve been hearing for the past few weeks is one big dog whistle.
The White House had no comment on Hoffa’s demented anti-teaparty rant in which he said:
“President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march…Everybody here’s got a vote…Let’s take these sons of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong.
Which shouldn’t surprise anyone given that the President himself is on record telling a Hispanic audience to “punish their enemies.” We’ve long known that this is not a President who wishes to preside over all Americans. The divisive speech he used from the very beginning of his presidency assured us of that.
James Hoffa, himself, expressed that he had “no regrets” for anything he said in his speech.
Media Matters is in full spin mode, trotting out the standard, “taken out of context” trope they use every time a lib is caught saying something stupid. (Yes, libs are forever being taken out of context.)
A response from the right:
The Daily Caller: Palin calls out Hoffa’s ‘thuggery’ for his ‘sons of bitches’ remarks
