The Democrats of the 116th Congress were sworn into office January 3, and the only thing missing from the spectacle was a clown car and laugh track.
Based on their heralded diversity and socialism proclivities, we knew the special day would be ripe with bombast and bonhomie, but truth be told, their unhinged zealotry exceeded our expectations.
AN OATH FOR AN OAF
Arizona Democrat frosh Kyrsten Sinema chose to swear an oath to the Constitution on a law book rather than the Holy Bible.
Kyrsten Sinema – Arizona
Sinema is the only congressional lawmaker who claims no religious affiliation. Spokesman John LaBombard claimed her choice to refrain from using a Bible to take her oath of office was just business as usual for the newly-minted senator that once called Arizonans “crazy.”
She is also one of only two senators with LGBTQ sexual orientation. Conceivably this could give Sinema some advantage when the so-called moderate straddles the fence on important issues facing our country.
IMPROVE BORDER SECURITY – EXPAND ABORTION!
Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats wasted no time their first day addressing an immediate solution to the government shutdown over President Trump’s request for a border wall. Their recommendation?
Expand abortion access worldwide by lifting the ban on non-governmental groups from providing and promoting abortions worldwide.
Nancy “A Wall is Immoral” Pelosi
One would think building a wall to improve border security would be easier and more humane, but apparently Democrats believe sucking the life from babies in the womb is less immoral than building a physical structure protecting America’s borders.
PROFANE – NOT COLORFUL
Tart-tongued Michigan frosh Rep Rashida Tlaib, one of two Muslim women sworn in last week, illustrated her inclusivity and warmth when she told a group of supporters, “We’re going to impeach the motherf&*%#$.
Rashida Tlaib – Michigan
This is what she reportedly told her son what Democrats were going to do to the president once his Mama was sworn in.
Who could forgive her son’s confusion if one day he’s elected as an officer to the Student Council and yells similar epithets at the school principal swearing him in.
SPEAKING OF COLORFUL…
Freshman Virginia Representative Jennifer Wexton thought it would be nice to show her true colors and demonstrate solidarity with the transgender community by flying the transgender pride flag outside her Congressional office.
Wexton isn’t transgender, but she has a niece who is and one of her hall mates is Danica Roem, the nations’s first openly transgender person to serve in any U.S. state legislature.
Jennifer Wexton – Virginia
The transgender flag consists of five horizontal stripes: two blue, two pink, and one white. What flag did Wexton’s transgender flag replace? The black and white POW/MIA flag honoring veterans who were – or are – missing in action.
Swapping a decades-old flag commemorating America’s veterans in the People’s House with a flag honoring people confused as to which bathroom to use seems misguided at best and insulting at worst.
Not to mention Wexton has an estimated 60,000 former military members working civilian jobs in her congressional district, and an untold number of active duty military.
Time will tell how voters react to Wexton’s change of colors, but the anecdotes above are just four examples of alt-left Democrats showing their mistaken priorities. And that was just their first day!
