NY Times Seems Upset That GOP Is Calling Democrats Socialists And Baby Killers

Yet another case of a thinly veiled opinion piece masquerading as a news story by Sheryl Gay Stolberg, in which she’s upset that the GOP is calling Democrats what they are. There are never any complaints when Dems say Republicans hate the poor, are complete racists, nor want to throw granny from a cliff. They only complain over things that are true

Republicans Already Are Demonizing Democrats as Socialists and Baby Killers
(web front page headline is Republicans are demonizing Democrats as left wing radicals on the economy, abortion and Israel)

In the 116th Congress, if you’re a Democrat, you’re either a socialist, a baby killer or an anti-Semite.

That, at least, is what Republicans want voters to think, as they seek to demonize Democrats well in advance of the 2020 elections by painting them as left-wing crazies who will destroy the American economy, murder newborn babies and turn a blind eye to bigotry against Jews.

The unusually aggressive assault, which Republican officials and strategists outlined in interviews last week, is meant to strangle the new Democratic majority in its infancy. It was set in motion this month by President Trump, who used his State of the Union address to rail against “new calls to adopt socialism in our country” and mischaracterize legislation backed by Democrats in New York and Virginia as allowing “a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments before birth.”

Then last week, Republicans amped it up, seizing on a Twitter post by a freshman representative, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, which even some Democrats condemned as anti-Semitic, and ridiculing the “Green New Deal,” an ambitious economic stimulus plan unveiled by Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described democratic socialist. Suddenly even Jewish Democrats were abetting anti-Semitism and moderate Democrats in Republican districts were Trotskyites and Stalinists.

This sure does look like it belongs in the opinion section, does it not? Ms. Stolberg lies about the NY and Va late term abortion bills. Omar is a Jew and Israel hater, as are quite a few Democrats, just like so much of their base, especially college kids and the recently graduated, where it is fashionable to be anti-Israel – remember, Dems are pushing the BDS movement hard – and BDS leads to Jew hatred.

A ton of them, especially those elected within the past few elections, are pure Socialists. They admit it. There are plenty of older ones around, as well. The GND deserves every bit of scorn it gets. I wonder if Ms. Stolberg will find it funny when there’s no gas to gather the news, energy is too expensive to operate in full, and the government nationalizes the Times? Because one of the first things Socialists want is direct control of information dissemination.

In the Senate, where five Democrats are already running for president, Mitch McConnell, the majority leader, announced he would force a vote on the measure, drawing howls from Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, the Democratic leader, who slammed the move as a “cynical stunt” intended solely to put Democrats, including the presidential candidates, on the spot. A vote in favor of the Green New Deal could help them court progressives in the primary vote, but hurt in a general election.

If the GND is so great, and it is the ultimate form of what we should term Modern Socialism (true Socialism features control of the economy, including owning the means of production, by government. It also has the govt staying out of our private lives. Do Dems look like they are trying to keep govt out of our lives? Other than allowing abortion on demand, of course), then why would it hurt Dems in the general election? Why are so many of these Democrats vulnerable now?

But Democrats must be careful not to let those exaggerations take hold. They are well aware that their path to keeping the majority runs through districts like Ms. Bustos’s, which the president carried in 2016.

This is a circling the wagons for Democrats piece.

“Of course I can see them trying to drive a wedge between the people in our districts, the people who are in more moderate districts,” said Representative Josh Gottheimer, a centrist Democrat from New Jersey and a chairman of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus. “That’s why it’s really important that we make sure that we govern from the middle.”

Too late. We’ve already seen the direction of Democrats. They want to pass all sorts of far left legislation as well as witchhunts against Trump.

Way more silliness in the article, worth the read. Suffice to say, Democrats are everything Stolberg is trying to say they aren’t.

    Communists, baby-killers, anti-Semites etc. It’s always campaign season for Don King.

    In other news, the planet is still warming, the gulf between rich and poor is still widening and we still need comprehensive immigration reform. And our President is a crook who likely conspired with a foreign government.

    But National Emergency to stop the Browns!! And commies, infanticide and Jew-haters!!! And so it goes…

      Just like Willie Whitewater and Zippy never stopped campaigning?

      Oh, yes, the planet is still warming, even though it’s 23F outside my window, Trump gave the working stiff more money and a job (the gap between rich and poor is eternal, although socialism’s promise always turns out to be equality only in misery (check Venezuela)), and immigration doesn’t need reform

      And we’re still waiting for you to prove the President (not our President, the President) did anything wrong since even Mule Ears has conceded he didn’t.

      But National Emergency to stop the Browns!!

      Last I heard, The Donald had nothing against the Cleveland team.

      And commies, infanticide and Jew-haters!!!

      You, VA, and Hell’s Harem. Them’s just the facts.
