California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton led the frenzied crowd at the recent 2017 California Democratic Convention in rousing chants of “f*ck Trump,” while extending both of his middle fingers. Burton, the leader of California’s Democratic Party since 2009, is a former member of the United States House of Representatives who also twice served in the California General Assembly.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California) and Barack Obama’s former labor secretary Hilda Solis, were seen yucking it up while Burton was chanting profanely and extending his middle fingers into the air in a blatant attempt to savage and discredit the current president. Burton, a class act like so many of his fellow Democrats, also earlier told protesters at the convention to “shut the f*ck up and go outside” prior to Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez taking the stage.
The Democratic Party has ceded itself to the left. The left will do anything to bring down the Trump administration and “f*ck” the U.S. Has even one major, national Democratic politician made it a point to criticize and condemn Burton’s actions? Of course not. In contrast, much maligned Republicans like George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan refused to even strongly criticize their Democratic successors, let alone vilely demean and discredit the office of the presidency. Nor do we see elected Republicans at any level acting like mafia thugs.
The heinous, hypocritical, pathetic scum that are at the vanguard of the Democratic Party’s current all-out attack on America would, of course, brand the very actions in which they are now engaging as criminally violent hate speech by bigoted, intolerant, right-wing extremists who intend to overthrow the duly-elected government of the people if any Republican stooped so low as to exhibit similar behavior if a Democrat was in the Oval Office.
But of course that would never happen. Republicans, though often timid, cautious and weak, at least have a healthy respect for the institutions in which they serve.
Or do they?
In-so-far as they let leftists, even while leftists are a distinct minority, push them around and dictate the political talking-points year after year, election after election, decade after decade, the evidence would suggest otherwise.
