The most corrupt Congress in our nation’s history appears to be attempting another ploy similar to the Russian sanctions of a few weeks ago.
For those who may recall, the Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell controlled Congress drafted new sanctions against Russia, on the basis of the conspiracy theory that Russia interfered in an undefined way in the US elections to help Trump win. The sanctions were passed with a veto proof majority, forcing Trump to either sign a document saying his election was illegitimate or open himself up to fresh accusations of being a traitor.
Once again, the out of touch, social justice warrior Republicans are busy acting like act like bitchy high school “mean girls” and crafting legislation to attack Trump:
Congress sent a resolution to the White House Tuesday condemning the violence at the white nationalist rally in Virginia last month and urging President Trump to speak out against racist hate groups.
The legislation, which passed by unanimous consent in the Senate on Monday and in the House on Tuesday, will be presented to Trump for his signature in an effort by lawmakers to secure a more forceful denunciation of racist extremism from the president.
It calls Heyer’s killing a “domestic terrorist attack” and denounces “White nationalists, White supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and other hate groups” but does not single out left-wing counterprotesting groups such as Antifa for equivalent opprobrium in the way Trump did.
Connolly suggested adding that Heyer was “a victim of domestic terrorism” who lost her life while “protesting against hate groups,” according to language reviewed by The Post. He also proposed noting that Trump “failed to condemn white supremacists and erroneously blamed ‘both sides’ for the violence.”
Let me be completely clear; Republicans understand very well Trump voters know when Democrats use the terms “white supremacist” and “Nazi,” it is both a code word and a smear for “Trump supporter.” Republicans want Trump to sign this legislation to alienate him from his supporters while smearing these average Americans as Nazis and white supremacists.
Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell can figure out how to embarrass the president and force him to sign bills condemning his own election and implicitly endorsing the violence of leftist brownshirt groups like Antifa.
But it’s just too gosh-darned hard for our high school girl “leaders” to figure out how to repeal Obamacare, pass tax cuts, fund the wall, or do anything else useful besides whining about Trump.
