There’s a reason they call them ‘Dumbocrats’
The Democrats are getting dumber – a lot dumber.
For Exhibit A, let’s go to the House hearings the other day with Big House-bound Michael “Jussie” Cohen. He was being questioned, or something, by the new Congresswoman from Michigan, Rashida Tlaib.
“Some of my collies can’t handle the truth.”
Her collies. That’s what she said. Lassie, come home!
Then she began laying out the case against President Trump.
“He has missed-used his pardon powers.”
Not misued, but “missed-used.” I mean, we all know Barack Obama couldn’t ad lib his way out of a paper bag if his TelePrompTer went down, but this “woman of color,” as she described herself, was reading from what appeared to be a prepared text.
“… sending checks to cover bribe payments, one in two-thousand-and-17th March and another in August 2017….”
May we quote you, Congresswoman?
“Individual 1 directed you, Mr. Cohen, to commit multiple fenal- fenal- felonies.”
Okay, we all know about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Pride of BU. And every Thursday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has a press conference that always results in a torrent of mental brain freezes and vapor locks.
But there are so many other new Democrats who are just a little… incoherent, shall we say.
For instance, the other new Muslim congressman, Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota. It’s difficult even to transcribe her incoherence. Sometimes it’s like she’s channeling Ted Kennedy. But she always manages to throw in the magic word that makes the gibberish into a usable soundbite for the alt-left media.
See if you can spot Omar’s magic word in this mash-up of words:
“A lot of the conversations oftentimes it’s it’s one that refuses really to separate I think um discussions around the country and its policies um one that is you know hatred for the people and their faith….”
If you said “hatred” you win!
When in doubt as a Democrat, claim you’re a victim of a hate crime. A few weeks back, the mayor of Lamar SC, Darnell Byrd-McPherson, went out in the morning and discovered a yellow substance on her two cars. It had to be some kind of GOP chemical attack, right?
She called 911 and issued the following statement after this savage hate crime:
“During the 1970’s, crosses were burned in the yard of our home when my Mother was involved with the civil rights movement. On this very same corner in this very same front yard! Again, we are grateful the person or persons did not try to take our lives but the culprits will be identified and prosecuted. Love conquers hate and my husband and I refuse to be intimidated by those who perpetrated this act of vandalism which I classify as an act of hatred.”
The Lamar police haz-mat unit just finished their analysis of the yellow substance on the mayor’s cars.
It was pollen.
The culprit, Mother Nature, could not be reached for comment.
Given the Democrats’ sordid record with the Ku Klux Klan, Jim Crow, massive resistance, etc., sometimes they forget, even now. Just ask the governor of Virginia – “Coonman” was his college nickname. In his med school yearbook he appeared in either blackface or KKK robes, but refuses to resign. Now his wife hands raw cotton to two young black kids and asks them how they’d have liked picking this all day… as slaves.
Then there’s Maryland, another hotbed of woke Democrats. Meet Mary Ann Lisanti, a state rep, which they call a “delegate.”
The other night, she was at an after-hours party at a cigar bar in Annapolis, where she referred to a majority-black district as a “n-word district.”
This was her response when asked about it by the Washington Post: “I don’t recall that… I don’t recall much of that evening.”
See what I mean about the lingering effects of a half century of Ted Kennedy?
Finally, the racist Democrat issued this statement: “I am sickened that a word that is not in my vocabulary came out of my mouth.”
Don’t you hate it when you get a bad ice cube and then you start slurring offensive words that aren’t even in your vocabulary?
When in doubt, the new woke Democrat knows there’s always one sure way to speak truth to power. Start swearing. This is what Rep. Ayanna Pressley did at that same Cohen hearing. She used a quote attributed to Trump, calling Third World countries “bleepholes.”
It may be the first time a seven-second delay ever had to be used at a Congressional hearing.
But Ayanna had learned well from Rep. Tlaib. Her first national publicity this year came when she called the president a 12-letter word that begins with “m” and ends with “r.”
Yesterday morning on CNN, Tlaib defended her performance at the Cohen hearing by saying she was speaking truth to power. Surely she meant to say she was speaking incoherence to power, at least when she’s not speaking potty mouth.
