Congressional Coca-Cola Cowgirl, Hammered By Public Backlash, Throws Race Card
The Fake News is going crazy with wacky Congresswoman Wilson(D), who was SECRETLY on a very personal call, and gave a total lie on content! – President Donald J. Trump on Twitter, October 19, 2017
FoxNews.com reports that
Florida Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson, in the midst of a public feud with the Trump administration over the treatment of a Gold Star family, said the “White House itself is full of white supremacists.”
In an interview with The New York Times on Friday, Wilson pushed back against comments made by White House chief of staff John Kelly during a Thursday press briefing in which he criticized Wilson’s involvement in a personal call President Trump made to the family of fallen Army Sgt. La David Johnson.
Johnson was one of four Americans killed in an ambush in Niger on Oct. 4. In the call, the president told Johnson’s widow that her husband “knew what he signed up for,” Wilson claimed. But Trump said that Wilson “totally fabricated” what he told Myeshia Johnson, the soldier’s widow.
Kelly said he was “broken-hearted” by Wilson’s involvement in the call. During his remarks, Kelly also criticized Wilson by recalling her comments during the 2015 dedication of a FBI field office in Miramar, Fla.
He said Wilson “talked about how she was instrumental in getting the funding for that building, and how she took care of her constituents because she got the money, and she just called up President Obama, and on that phone call, he gave the money, the $20 million, to build the building, and she sat down.”
“And we were stunned, stunned that she’d done it,” Kelly said of Wilson’s remarks during the event. “Even for someone that is that empty a barrel, we were stunned.”
But video of that event, released on Friday, showed that Wilson did not actually talk about the building’s funding, but instead spoke of her own efforts getting legislation passed that named the building after the fallen agents it was dedicated for.
“I feel very sorry for him because he feels such a need to lie on me and I’m not even his enemy,” Wilson said of Kelly, according to The Times. “I just can’t even imagine why he would fabricate something like that. That is absolutely insane. I’m just flabbergasted because it’s very easy to trace.”
Wilson didn’t label Kelly a racist in the piece but did claim that others in the White House are.
“They are making themselves look like fools. They have no credibility,” she said. “They are trying to assassinate my character, and they are assassinating their own because everything they say is coming out and shown to be a lie.”
The White House didn’t back down from Kelly’s comments during a Friday afternoon press briefing. Kelly, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said, “absolutely” stands by his criticism.
“As Gen. Kelly pointed out, if you’re able to make a sacred act like honoring American heroes all about yourself, you’re an empty barrel,” Sanders said. “If you don’t understand that reference, I will put it a little bit more simply. As we say in the South: ‘all hat, no cattle.’”
Before I vent my spleen, a few cogent facts about the “Coca-Cola Cowgirl”, courtesy of Heavy.com…
Wilson, a Democrat, previously served as the executive director for Miami’s Office of Alternative Education. She was elected to represent Florida’s District 17 in 2010 and then the 24th district in 2012. Her term is set to expire January 3, 2019.
According to her answers on a questionnaire to Vote Smart, Wilson is pro-choice, supports same-sex marriage and is against the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act. She also “generally” supports gun-control legislation while also supporting income tax increases to any tax bracket in order to balance the budget. In virtually every bill that’s related to veterans, though, she’s voted against proposed legislation, her voting record showed.
Here’s what you need to know about her voting record:
1. She Opposed a Bill Expanding Benefits to the Families of Fallen Soldiers.
2. Wilson Voted Against a Bill Protecting Whistleblowers Within the VA.
3. Wilson Opposed a Bill That Prevented a Government Shutdown.
4. She Voted Against the Recent Republican-Backed U.S. Budget Bill.
5. Wilson Voted Against a Bill That Keeps Guns Out of the Hands of Mentally Incompetent Veterans.
First off, regarding her claim that the “White House itself is full of white supremacists.”, I am positive that statement comes as a surprise to Dr. Ben Carson, Cabinet Member and Director of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, a world-renowned Pediatric Neurosurgeon, who just happens to be black.
But, I digress…
As I have been writing over the last several years, Liberals are nothing if not predictable.
They view everything in terms of politics and race, not necessarily in that order.
From city councils to Congress, you can bet your bottom dollar, that when a Democrat is shown to be a clueless buffoon in any public matter, if they happen to be black, they will play the Race Card.
This egregious claim coming from Democrats like the Coca-Cola Cowgirl, that President Trump is a racist or a White Supremacist reminds me of all the historical conflicts which I used to read about, during the course in college which I took, titled “The Rhetoric of Social Protest“.
Karl Marx knew long ago that all you needed to do to touch the heart of the common man was to convince him of a shared struggle.
Vladimir Lenin took this a step further, by using the concept of a shared struggle to convince the Bolsheviks to help him overthrow the Czar of Russia and murder him and his family during the Russian Revolution.
Forgive me for stating the obvious, but fiery rhetoric spoken by a national leader has consequences.
Former President Barack Hussein Obama is as responsible for what has happened to Race Relations in America, as any thug wannabe in any city.
However, he is not alone in his responsibility.
Every race-baiter, local & national, who fanned the flames of racial hatred, has the blood of any innocent person, police and civilians alike, slain in the name of Racial Division.
Do you remember when one half of the “Justice Brothers”, the “Reverend” Al Sharpton, led a march in New York City, capitalizing on the deaths of two of Michael Brown and Earl Garner?
During the march, the protesters chanted
What do we want? Dead Cops!
Somehow, America’s Professional Race-Baiters, from the Former Community Organizer-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama, on down, twisted the facts to make it America’s Law Enforcement Officers’ Fault that two thugs got themselves killed in altercations with police officers.
What ever happened to personal responsibility?
President Ronald Reagan once said,
There are no constraints on the human mind, no walls around the human spirit, no barriers to our progress except those we ourselves erect.
Compare it to these words:
It’s not to make excuses for that fact — although black folks do interpret the reasons for that in a historical context. They understand that some of the violence that takes place in poor black neighborhoods around the country is born out of a very violent past in this country, and that the poverty and dysfunction that we see in those communities can be traced to a very difficult history. – President Barack Hussein Obama, 7/19/2014
Obama, for his own political reasons, reinforced at every opportunity while President, the self-fulfilling prophecy that the Black Community was still shackled and limited in their freedom.
Which was a delicious bit of irony considering that, as a black man, he held for 8 long years the position of President of the most powerful country on the face of the Earth.
The erroneous claims of bigotry aimed at President Trump, are merely a codicil in the Playbook of the Perpetually Aggrieved, as they continue their never-ending National Temper Tantrum over the results of the 2016 Presidential election.
In what has to be the worse case of mass self-unawareness on record, Modern American Liberals continue to make themselves look like poor losers and crybabies, as they continue to behave like petulant teenagers who have ben grounded for acting out.
Congresswoman Wilson has become an overnight pariah, to be shunned, ridiculed, and not taken seriously over her attempt to politicize the death of one of America’s Brightest and Best.
Personally. I hope that her and the rest of the Democrats continue to behave like the jackasses that they are.
