Democrats: Government Is Christmas, and Trump Is the Grinch or Something

Posted on | December 25, 2018 | Comments Off on Democrats: Government Is Christmas, and Trump Is the Grinch or Something


Their talking points are always so . . . original:

Several Democrats called President Donald Trump “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas” during the government shutdown fight over wall funding last weekend.
During the government shutdown fight over Trump’s proposed $5 billion in wall funding, Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) compared the president to Dr. Suess’s “the Grinch” on CNN.
Kaine, who was Hillary Clinton’s vice presidential candidate during the 2016 election, said, “Donald J. Trump is about to be ‘The Grinch that Stole Christmas.’”
“He’s the only person who wants a shutdown and he seems intent on doing it,” Kaine said.
In reaction to the pending government shutdown, the Virginia Democrat said, “I don’t negotiate with bullies, and I don’t think the Senate should negotiate with bullies,” implying that the president is both the Grinch and a bully.
Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) tweeted a picture on Friday, implying that the president is the Grinch.
“To celebrate Christmas, [Donald Trump] is giving over 420,000 working families the gift of going to work but not being paid,” Merkley wrote. “That means law enforcement, air traffic controllers, and TSA agents are working one of their busiest times of year — with no pay.”
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti had a different approach, suggesting that it “would be offensive” to compare Trump to the Grinch.
“To call realDonaldTrump a Grinch to the countless Americans impacted by his threats of a shutdown would be offensive to the Grinch,” Garcetti tweeted on Friday. “This is a season to enjoy time with friends & family. Instead, the consequences of Trump’s disastrous leadership are on full display.”
Several of these Democrat criticisms of Trump arise as the New York Daily News released their Saturday cover, portraying Trump as the Grinch.
The headline reads, “How the Trump Stole Christmas!”

If you’re old enough to remember the 1990s, this is nothing new.



After Republicans took over Congress in the 1994 midterms, Time and Newsweek featured GOP House Speaker Newt Gingrich on Christmas season covers as the Grinch or as Ebenezer Scrooge. In point of fact, however, it isn’t Republicans but Democrats who really hate Christmas, because the Democrat Party is against Christianity, per se. For decades, Democrats have advocated atheism, abortion and homosexuality, openly mocking both the faith and morality of Christians. Perhaps more perverse than this, however, is the way Democrats consider the oppressive force of government — the parasitic existence of which requires the use of coercion to obtain taxpayer funding — as an instrument of charity, as if federal bureaucrats are beneficent humanitarians and members of Congress are engaged in philanthropy, rather than politics.

Generally speaking, whatever Democrats say is the exact opposite of truth. How is it that, when then GOP was in control of Congress and Bill Clinton was in the White House, the government shutdown was blamed on Republicans, but now that a Republican is president, the shutdown is blamed on Congress? Of course, the responsibility for the 1995 shutdown actually rested with Clinton, who repeatedly vetoed the budget bills passed by Congress and, in fact, Democrats are responsible for the current government shutdown. Because the funding bill includes money for the border wall, it is being filibustered by Senate Democrats, who are against any measure to enforce our immigration laws, in the same way Democrats are against Christianity. The reason why Democrats tell such predictable lies, other than their own intrinsic dishonesty, is because they know that the liberal news media will “report” their lies as facts.
