Grover Norquist shared a personal anecdote online about his daughter to demonstrate how Republicans are born.
…all of which proved to be TOO MUCH for the left.
Norquist, the man behind the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, a promise by lawmakers to oppose all tax increases while in office, explained that his 8-year-old daughter wanted to buy a guitar and just enough money to pay for it, only to be stymied by the sales tax.
How Republicans are born…
Daughter, 8, has been savings up to buy her first Guitar.
Found it for $35. She had 35 exact.

A simple enough concept, but it prompted a quick reaction from omnipotent moral busybodies on the left, looking to teach Norquist about the “values” of socialism and social justice in post-Obama America.
Here’s a sampling of the unhinged responses from Twitter:
How Democrats are born:
Daughters gets straight As.
Graduates top college. Hired for great job.
Finds out she makes less than male peer. https://t.co/EEbJrueR3q

In a car which only has seat belts preventing you from being badly injured in the event of a crash due to taxpayer funded regulations?

Pretty bad parenting to not tell a little girl about sales tax before making her leave a store in tears. https://t.co/dfAfWTpDXr

Seems cruel to get your kid's hopes up and then spring an additional cost you knew about on her, rather than letting her know beforehand. https://t.co/L4EMq6BUJI

I agree, Grover, Republican policies only make sense if you’re a small child.
