"‘Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven’."

I have seen (heard) this verse often quoted to give Democrats license to do whatever they want to do.

For example, The ("Reverend") Jesse Jackson quoted it to excuse Clinton from his despicable behavior getting blowjobs in the White House from a young intern.

How about your opinions - does this verse mean that we cannot condemn evil behavior?

Does anyone else remember instances of the verse being used to excuse a liberal from something condemnable?

Personally, I think it is Satan's deception to quote God's word in this way. Anyone else?

I agree! It has been used incorrectly for centuries to do just exactly that. If people actually read the context instead of pieces of verses, they would realize that Jesus was not saying we could not judge between right and wrong or we could not say what another person is doing is wrong else why give us commandments? There were other times where Jesus said we SHOULD judge - “by their fruits you shall know them” is one. No, we should be sure that when we judge we are not guilty of the same sin - hypocrites. What we should avoid is judging others motives, judging what we think we know is in their hearts - where ONLY God can see. Funny how many people use the Bible when they think it helps their point but then discard it if it goes against whatever they want to do.
