A righteous rant by guest host Erick Erickson.
While I was traveling today, my friend Erick Erickson of RedState guest-hosted my show, which meant I had the unusual pleasure of being a listener to the Herman Cain Show.
And boy, was it a pleasure!
Erick really gave us a stunning look at a widespread practice of Democrats to gain political power across the country, which is to simply file lawsuits and launch bogus investigations of Republicans - then make sure everyone knows these Republicans are "under investigation" even though the investigations are based on nothing.
A few examples:
This should surprise no one. This is the party led by Barack Obama, who tells his supporters he wants them to "take a gun to a knife fight," by which he means they should treat political rivals as enemies. This is the guy who makes it clear (as did any number of Democrat senators including Schumer and Levin) that he wants the IRS to go after conservative groups, and then when they get the message and do just that, acts like he can't believe anyone thought it was his idea.
Democrats do this because, to them, political power is the be-all and end-all of life. Republicans want political power too - let's make no mistake about that - but for members of the party of government, you are threatening a Democrat's very livelihood if you take away his access to political power. He sees it as war, and that's how he fights it. No tactic is beyond the pale, and that includes besmirching the good names of people whose only offense against you was to win political power that you wanted for your side.
Democrats need to win! Without access to political power, they have no idea what to do. Most Republicans who run for office and lose (as I did), just find something else to do. Life goes on. Not so for Democrats, who consider it an attack on their very existence if you try to keep them from access to the power and resources found in government.
And Erick is right. They will do absolutely anything to stop you from taking what they consider their right to have.
My favorite is when they cite Republicans for associating with “hate groups.” This, as defined by the SPLC - a group of radical communist scum in their own right - as if that gives an imprimatur of legitimacy. Mark R Levin went off on this tactic last Wednesday on his show.
This is the reason I am so opposed to the Democratic party, they assault the process itself to gain power. Anybody that is willing to actively undermine the rule of law and the election process has no business being in power in a republic...
They have been doing that forever.
Check out the newspapers from 1944 Democrat National Convention
(page 3, left column, about 6 paragraphs down)
Senator Jackson declared that the ballot box must not be made “Hitler’s secret weapon”, implying that defeat of the Roosevelt Administration would be one of the greatest spurs that could come to enemy morale.
“A change in the national administration in time of war, even surrounded by promising circumstances, is frightening to contemplate” Mr. Jackson said “It is dangerous”.
I guess he didn't notice that this is what they did to Sarah Palin.
The goal is obfuscation.
If they can cloud the issues and confuse people with an unceasing litany of scandals, they believe their corruption will be lost in the ensuing confusion.
Democrat scu&bags have no problem with subversion. It’s in thier genes. (and furthered by Republican inability to deal with it. )
