Life comes at you fast when trying to keep up with unhinged progressive Democrats.
According to 2020 Democratic presidential long shot Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, President Donald Trump is a Nazi who gets his orders from Russia — the Democrat doesn’t seem to grasp that being a Nazi and a Russian agent are conflicting realities.
Struggling to find traction in the Democratic primary, O’Rourke insisted that Trump is a Russian asset when asked on CNN about the president denouncing Hillary Clinton for calling Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, a Russian agent. Gabbard, also running for the White House, is a combat veteran who fought for her country.
When pressed by CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer for any evidence to support his assertion, O’Rourke rattled off a long, often nonsensical list of alleged offenses.
“So beyond the shadow of a doubt and for everyone to see clearly in black and white,” he said, “this President has broken the law and he’s taken the side of Russia instead of the United States.”
Giving the Democrat plenty of rope to hang himself, Blitzer pressed again, “But are you suggesting he’s getting orders from Moscow?”
“I’m suggesting he’s working in the interests of Russia and defying the interests of the United States,” O’Rourke said, before dismissing Blitzer’s inquiry about whether Trump believes he’s working in his own self-interest.
Yet, on the very same program, O’Rourke stood by his assertion that Trump is a Nazi.
On Sunday, he told MSNBC’s Al Sharpton that there’s “so much that is resonant of the Third Reich” in the Trump administration.
“President Trump, perhaps inspired by Goebbels and the propagandists of the Third Reich, seems to employ this tactic that the bigger the lie, the more obscene the injustice, the more dizzying the pace of this bizarre behavior, the less likely we are to be able to do something about it,” O’Rourke said then.
Goebbels being Adolf Hitler’s propaganda minister, of course.
When asked about this analogy, O’Rourke told Blitzer, “Find me a better analogy.”
He goes on to expose how unhinged he is in his opposition to Trump, even deranged, as he equates any number of policy differences he has with the president, be it illegal immigration, criticizing the “squad” of four radical freshman Democrats, or a recent shooting in El Paso, as evidence that Trump is a Nazi.
If one didn’t know better, they might swear they were watching a Saturday Night Live skit.
Blitzer then asked the Democrat if he understands that comparisons to the Holocaust and the Nazis are unacceptable to most people.
“It is the comparison of last resort,” O’Rourke replied. “And that is where we are. And I don’t mean the last resort political or last resort in terms of defeating the president in November, but the last resort for this country that is descending into an open racism and intolerance and violence led by the president.”
Talk about a rosy world view.
He finished by talking about drawing a conclusion about “the danger” Trump poses to this country, but it’s becoming more and more clear that the greater danger to the U.S. may be the toxic resistance to the commander in chief from the opposition party and their media allies.
