We’re not sure if Texas Democrat Al Green is just excited about finding a way to get his name in the paper or if he’s really this much of an anti-democracy zealot, but whatever his motivations, he is rapidly turning into the biggest joke in Congress. Considering this is a body of elected officials that includes the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Frederica Wilson, Maxine Waters, and other braindead liberals, that’s really saying a lot about Green’s foolishness.
The Democrat leadership, as misguided and venomous as they are, doesn’t even want anything to do with Green and his one-man war against President Trump. But as long as this idiot can still get his face on CNN and MSNBC every once in a while, we suppose he’s going to keep coming up with these silly ultimatums.
Green introduced the first and, thus far, only articles of impeachment against President Trump last month, but now he’s super serious about getting Democrats to rally around his lost cause.
“I now announce that before Christmas, there will be a vote on the chief inciter of racism, bigotry, hatred, xenophobia, sexism and ethnocentrism,” he said on the House floor Wednesday.
While the Democrats who run the party inside Washington are eager to put distance between themselves and morons like Green, don’t think for a minute they’re doing so for any other reason than political expediency. They would impeach Trump tomorrow if they thought they had any chance of getting Republicans on board with the effort; they are laying low only because they know that a failed attempt would make them look pathetic and impotent.
In speech this week in Washington, Steve Bannon warned anti-amnesty activists that if Republicans tried to do something foolish like plug DACA amnesty into the next spending bill, it could cause the dominoes to fall for their re-election efforts in November. And if Democrats are able to take power on Capitol Hill, it’s quite clear what their first order of business will be.
“It’s so obvious,” Bannon said at the Remembrance Project conference. “ If they lose the House of Representatives, you’ve already got a Wall Street billionaire in Tom Steyer up there putting what? Millions of dollars in the ads to do one thing, what? Impeach the president of the United States. That’s all Nancy Pelosi lives for.”
This is why it’s so crucial for Republicans in Washington to get their act together, pass a tax reform bill that actually makes a difference in people’s lives, REPEAL AND REPLACE OBAMACARE, and stop trying to shove amnesty down the throats of their voters, who want nothing to do with it. This isn’t rocket science. It only gets complicated when our elected officials start playing to the donor class instead of the people who put them in office.
Ads and tweets aren’t going to keep Democrats from taking back the House – ACTION will. It’s past time we see some. Because if Democrats slaughter the GOP in the midterms, lonely Al Green won’t be the only one calling for Trump’s impeachment.
