Incendiary Rhetoric for Thee, But Not for Me

Democrats are once again impeaching former President Donald Trump —now a private citizen — for provocative rhetoric they say incited the attack on the Capitol Building Jan 6. If inflammatory language is now cause for impeachment, according to the left, when do similar proceedings start for Sen. Chuck Schumer, who threatened two U.S. Supreme Court justices?

While speaking to a crowd of left-wing abortion activists last March on the steps of the Supreme Court, Schumer warned Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh that they would “pay” if they don’t rule his way on abortion rights. “I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh: You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price,” the Democratic leader threatened at the rally. “You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”

Was that not inciting violence?

At minimum Schumer’s threats were not unlike strong-arm tactics used by the Mafia back in the days of Al Capone. Highly inappropriate for any lawmaker drawing a rare public rebuke from Chief Justice John Roberts who said: “Justices know that criticism comes with the territory, but threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous. All Members of the Court will continue to do their job, without fear or favor, from whatever quarter.”

Or what about so-called Squad member Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., who encouraged Americans to crank up “unrest in the streets” last summer during the Black Lives Matter protests and riots taking place throughout the country? During a TV interview on MSNBC the far-left congresswoman told guest host Tiffany Cross, “You know, there needs to be unrest in the streets for as long as there is unrest in our lives.”

Then there’s Congresswoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., who, during the Trump administration, was accused of inciting mob violence against sitting cabinet officials. In 2018 she said: “If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them! And you tell them that they are not welcome, anymore, anywhere.”

Even Schumer took to the Senate floor to say that it was “not right” and “not American” to harass political opponents. But alas, Waters still holds office today.

But that’s not all. During a 2018 campaign event in Georgia, President Barack Obama’s former Attorney General Eric Holder boasted about “kicking” Republicans. Holder said he disagreed with former first lady Michelle Obama. He said: “It is time for us as Democrats to be as tough as they are, to be as dedicated as they are, to be as committed as they are… Michelle always says, ‘When they go low, we go high.’ No. No. When they go low, we kick them.”

Double standards indeed.

Apparently, in America today, there’s one code of conduct for GOP politicians — including a former president — when it comes to incendiary rhetoric and free speech but not for Democratic lawmakers and Department of Justice officials.

Where is that dual justice system written in the U.S. Constitution?

Answer: nowhere.

Until the left plays by the same rules and the enforcement of said rules is applied equally amongst Democrats and Republicans, America will continue to be dangerously divided. A path that is unsustainable.

As commander in chief, President Joe Biden must act on his promises to unify the country. He can do so by addressing the nation and calling upon members of his party and the toxic media to stop the relentless smears and attacks against conservatives. Ask these hatemongers to stop calling half the country Nazis, white supremacists and other dehumanizing labels that are tearing our country apart.

Americans must remember that “United we stand, divided we fall.”

That’s not just a proverb; it’s the truth.

  1. That’s all right, let them run their mouths, I’ll run mine… I pray DAILY that these anti-Constitution politicians, their corrupt financiers (i.e. Soros), and their heathen corrupt censoring bastards (i.e. Zuckerberg, Dorsey, Bezos, etc.) in big media and big tech ALL suffer ruin and famine for the remainder of these days, and they shall forever NEVER dwell in the House of the LORD… (“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth…”)

    1. amen totally agree with you. as for the media they can all go to hell. I don”t watch any news media and glad to see chris wallace a bias liberal representative exposed. He will never be like his father. He is as fake as the democrats

    2. This is why we need to join and support the Convention of States so we can flush all the trash and satan worshipers out the door with the garbage

    3. Agreed! We have too many Dirty and UNTIDY MINDS with Selfsih Heats running our Be Loved USA! May be we should have a Qualification Test before anyone who is OFFCIALLY SIGNED UP to run for any FORM of a PUBLIC OFFICE!

    1. Its the platforms algorythmn not the web site. Big tech owns the platform. They are the ones who are censoring everything. If you use inventive spe11ing your p0st can get thru. Example: C0nvention of States . com Sign up and he1p your [email protected] join the 15 others who have already signed on [email protected] to [email protected] back [email protected] rights and [email protected] c0ngress to get term-1imits, ba1anced budget @mendments and st0p [email protected] g0vernment bl0at.

  2. The Democrat’s will have our country in the same condition as California in no time flat, with puppet Buffoon Biden at the helm. and Nancy Pelosi as The Puppeteer.

  3. Big deal. If there’s ANYTHING we’ve learned in the past 4 years it’s that there truly is a double standard. Liberal Democrats can do or say anything they want with no repercussions. Let’s what happens to King Cuomo now. He DEFINITELY needs to be removed from office but this whole fiasco will be dead in a week

  4. By any chance is the private citizen a (un)holy-wood “elite” or a soros minion? Regular JQ Public, even if a dem doesn’t have the money OR the time to file charges. We’re too busy trying to survive through the plandemic to do so. I am so sick and tired of the “idols” thinking that their voice matters any more than mine. They may have money to throw away so frivolously, but I have heart — and it belongs to Jesus Christ and KNOW that I am on my knees in prayer against the travesty initiated by those who think they and their thoughts are more important than God who died on the cross for ALL who seek him. This same God who created heaven and earth; the GREAT I Am who is before time as we see it and who is NOT blind to what His creation is visiting on each other. God is not mocked. Whatsoever a man soweth, that also shall he reap. Be careful. You may say that if God is so great and merciful, why does he permit bad things to happen to good people and I say to you in the Mighty name of Jesus, that He has given us free will and while so many of you have decided that your will is more important than what God proclaims and that you do it to your detriment and unfortunately take many with you. GOD is not fooled and He is in control and He loves you and calls you to believe in Him and His love for you so that you can be saved from the madness that is taking over not just America but the world at large. There is a darkness, the beast, the antichrist, taking over the world and He calls to you before it is too late. Repent from your wicked ways. Believe in Him and be saved. His loving arms are open to receive you. John 3:16

    1. AMEN agree with you 100%. As the USA has drifted more against God and his son our Savior Jesus Christ more sin will be set upon us. Trump attempted to align us with Israel to improve our standing but Biden (an apparent Christian Roman Catholic) has done all he can in a short time to reverse the progress. May Almighty God have mercy on our great nation and all true believers.

  5. The Democrat Party is Evil,Liars and hypocrites. If they cannot be removed over legalities it is time to start thinking about succession.

  6. Chuck should also be held accountable , Maxine Waters, buttyguige, kamala, sleepy Joe, polosi, and the list goes on. Come on Republicans, they can spend millions, upon millions of American tax payer dollars and you guys sit there with your thumb in your mouths. Are you , voted by your constituents not hold them accountable? We The People expect more of you. Stand up for justice and leave your cowardly cloak at home. Better yet, bury it. Someone needs to show that nincompoop McConnell the whole video of November 6 rally and FBI report didn’t they know something was brewing. Stop this madness Republicans open up the country squash the real insurgents BLM, Antigua and give us a little hope

  7. If anyone is going to wait for Biden to unify the country they will be waiting forever. Biden is a chronic LIAR, everything he talked about doing he has changed his mind and his comments about Pres Trump after being acquitted only proves his contempt and hatred. Good news is when Republicans regain the House and Senate next year the gloves come off. Harris, Schumer, Omar, Pelosi, Waters, hell most all Dems called for violence so I guess they can all be impeached to include Biden for many reasons. I think it was a good thing the Dems did because they cannot seem to obey the laws , we will see what happens.

    1. Amen to that! They are acting like Kings and Queens, instead of being OUR employees, who are supposed to do OUR bidding. America was made to be governed BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE, we are the boss, politicians are supposed to do what we want, not the other way around; let them eat cake!
