Attacks on any elected leader who isn’t a liberal are nothing new—Democrats meme better than mockingbirds on a warm summer night. In North Carolina, Republicans now have a target on their backs as liberal groups pledge “to weaken our opponents' ability to govern by crippling their leaders…”
Conservatives and libertarians should return the favor to our Dem brethren. It’s just as easy to investigate members of one party as another, although in the case of North Carolina, an investigation wasn’t necessary to reveal liberal shenanigans.
There were the sexual harassment charges against the NC excecutive director of the Democrat Party—a man’s claims led Jay Parmley to resign. Parmley denied all but said he resigned to avoid becoming “a distraction.” Ahem.
Then there was the laughable statement by the state’s Democrat governor who said this after the 2010 midterm election:
“'I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover,’ Perdue said at a rotary club event in Cary, N.C., according to the Raleigh News & Observer. ‘I really hope that someone can agree with me on that.'”
If these officials were Republicans, there’d be a movie of the week from the Tinseltown crowd by now.
It’s not just North Carolina. In Maryland, a viable candidate running on the Dem ticket for a U.S. House seat admitted to vote fraud—she allegedly voted in Florida (a habit, it appears, among some liberals) and in Maryland in the same election.
In South Carolina, a former member of the Democrat executive committee got into a bit of trouble:
“Christopher Lykes Jr., 36, of Swansea, was arrested Thursday and charged with five counts of violating medical confidentiality laws and one count of disclosure of confidential information, according to SLED. Lykes also is a former member of the executive committee of the Lexington County Democratic Party.”
Lykes, who worked for the state Health and Human Services agency, allegedly breached security for more than 228,000 Medicaid enrollees, sending “names, phone numbers, addresses, birth dates and Medicare ID numbers … to his unsecured, personal email account.” Great way to help minorities, right?
When Dems opened their convention in Charlotte last year, the gavel was wielded by a serial cheater even as the party touted their support for women.
From scandals related to the Democrat mayor of Trenton (N.J.) to busting schoolchildren for politically incorrect lunches as a result of First Lady Michelle Obama’s food activism, there’s rampant opportunity to start investigating every Democrat holding any office in the land.
All that’s needed is an acknowledgement a political war has been launched against Republicans and the only option is to return political fire.
Whether the Republican Party is capable of such an operation I cannot say, but I can predict Dems will not let up as 2014 approaches. Look to Florida where attacks on Gov. Rick Scott continue unabated and largely unaddressed.
If you haven’t read about the scandals noted, don’t be surprised. These are Democrats and media are indeed their puppets, serving as the de facto communications arm of the DNC. Bear in mind that with this article, I just hit the high spots.
In 2008 the influential blog site Daily Kos declared war on conservative leaders. Few Republicans took note. It became obvious the Left won that war. Will Republicans and conservatives retaliate this time?
