Really, Donna? On national TV you told the Republican National Committee Chairwoman, Ronna McDaniel, to go to Hell?
Not only did you say it once, but when your Fox News hosts expressed shock at your statement, you doubled down and said it again.
Those words were over the top, Donna. So much so, that if it weren’t for the politically correct intersectionality of your liberal black female privilege, you’d have been let go already by yet another major news network.
Have you seen how Hell is described, Donna? If you have, you surely know it’s not a place you’d want your worst enemy to be. In my opinion, to wish someone be in Hell is 1,000 times more offensive than calling someone the “N” word, and I’m pretty sure you know how offensive that can be.
And yet you doubled down. Therefore, without a doubt:
- An apology is needed, not only to Ronna McDaniel, but to all of America
- You deserve to be fired from Fox News
Your outrageous comment stemmed from Ronna McDaniel expressing her viewpoint on what the Democrats are up to with Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar ending their Presidential campaigns within hours of Super Tuesday, with both of them endorsing Joe Biden. To any thinking person, it has all the markings of a coordinated effort by non-Bernie Democrats to nominate Joe Biden.
Yet you indignantly claimed there was no coordinated effort, and you repeatedly asked for proof.
Are you seriously going to stand by that? In addition to Buttigieg’s and Klobuchar’s sudden departure from the race, Deep State players like Susan Rice, James Comey, and John Brenan also started pushing the Biden bus – all on Super Tuesday or in the hours leading up to it. Then, a day later, Mike Bloomberg bowed out and voiced his support for Biden, as well.
It’s not rocket science, Donna, it’s history repeating itself, and yes, you do know what’s going on. After all, four years ago, when similar Democrat Party shenanigans cheated Bernie Sanders during his Presidential bid, you had a front-row seat.
Do you remember becoming Interim Chairperson of the DNC after Debbie Wasserman Schulz stepped down? Of course you do. And do you remember why she stepped down? Of course you do.
Wikileaks released emails in July of 2016 showing DNC officials clearly looking for ways to discredit Bernie Sanders so Hillary would get the nomination.
According to the Guardian, “Sanders said he found the emails ‘outrageous’, but said they were ‘not a great shock to me. I mean, there’s no question to my mind, no question to any objective observer’s mind, the DNC was supporting Hillary Clinton and I’m not shocked by this.’”
So Wasserman Schultz resigned in embarrassment and you, Donna, took over.
You remained a political commentator with CNN, but in October of 2016, CNN cut ties with you after Wikileaks revealed you had passed likely debate questions a second time to the Democrat nominee, Hillary Clinton. The first time you did this was in March of that year. In fact, you even titled your email to Clinton’s campaign chair, John Podesta, “From time to time I get the questions in advance.”
That behavior is called cheating, Donna. And lest anyone argue that this is merely an accusation, in March of 2017 you admitted to the cheating.
In fact, you even wrote an op-ed in Politico openly stating that the DNC rigged the election against Bernie, and you threw Wasserman Schultz, Hillary, and even Obama under the bus along the way. You even included these events in a book!
The usual double standards
To be clear, it’s okay if you call out the DNC for rigging an election against Bernie Sanders so you can sell a book, but if the RNC chair suggests Democrats might be arranging a brokered convention that “will be rigged against Bernie if the super delegates have their way”, you want them to “stay the hell out of our race.”
It reminds me of a battered wife who says of her abusive husband, “Yes, he’s a jerk, but he’s MY jerk – I’m not pressing charges.”
What’s the motive for your over-the-top language, Donna? Do you feel guilty for throwing so many Democrats under the bus three years ago? Or, are you merely attempting to deflect attention away from the DNC’s coordinated effort to prevent Bernie from being the nominee?
For the record, your attitude and words are highly offensive, but they do not intimidate us. Like all Americans, we are free to observe what’s going on in the Democrat party and talk about it.
Bernie can’t win, but why choose Biden?
Key Democrats do not believe Bernie has what it takes to win. For example, according to a February 9 article in the Wall Street Journal, “Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he doesn’t believe U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders is the best Democratic candidate to beat President Trump,” and that, “Mr. Sanders’s identification as a democratic socialist would be a liability in a general election challenge, calling the label ‘a big pill for a lot of voters to swallow.’”
Since Gallup tells us that only 37 percent of Americans are okay voting for a socialist, and the NPR/Marist poll puts that number at only 28%, it’s within reason for any thinking person to predict that if Bernie were the nominee, he would garner at most only 40 - 45% of the popular vote. Trump winning re-election with 55 - 60% of the popular vote would totally destroy the DNC’s ability to blame the electoral college. It would also damage their effort to eliminate it.
No, the Democrats can’t let that happen.
But Bernie being unable to win the White House is not the only reason the DNC prefers Biden to be the nominee. There’s that little matter about a quid pro quo for a billion dollars to Ukraine and a certain son-of-a-Vice-President who landed a dream job for which he had no qualifications … other than he provided a corrupt organization access to the White House. Additionally, people like Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi are likely to have their own reasons to keep Trump from learning what’s been going on in Ukraine.
Question: Since the DNC knows the Biden's are also known as the Biden Crime Family, is it plausible the DNC is hoping a Biden nomination will deflect investigations into any of the alleged crimes? After all, we just got done with a huge (and expensive) distract and deflect operation called the “Impeachment Proceedings.” Did you notice that every time a reporter asked Biden about his family’s activities, Biden immediately flipped the focus back onto President Trump? It's so convenient!
With Biden as the Democrat’s nominee, isn’t it likely, Donna, that the entire Democrat machine and their public relations arm (aka the legacy media) will dutifully declare any and all efforts to investigate alleged crimes by the Biden's to be political warfare? Won’t they downplay all evidence as mere politics and focus instead on Trump every time he sneezes in a way they don't like?
With Biden as the nominee, the DNC buys time, hoping that either:
- Biden wins the White House so all criminal investigations against Democrats evaporate, or
- Somehow a crack will appear in Trump’s armor that Democrats can exploit.
Who has the fear Donna?
In the meantime, Donna, your “show me the proof” comments to Ronna McDaniel can be turned back at you with your reference to “Russian talking points.” In reality, Daily Kos reminds us that this phrase has long been part of the Democrat talking points. So if you have any proof of these Russian talking points you keep talking about, please cough them up.
In closing, could it be that it’s not the RNC that’s afraid of being defeated – that it’s the DNC that’s running scared? Could Democrats and other Deep State players be terrified that their crimes and corruption are close to being uncovered? Could it be that you have been tasked with being part of a misdirection effort, and your offensive words combined with a puffed-up anger are merely attempts to deflect attention away from what the Democrats are trying to do?
You keep saying you are an American. You seem to forget, Donna, that we, too, are Americans, and we have a right to know what’s going on in the election of our nation’s leaders.
You owe Ronna McDaniel and the entire nation an apology for your most offensive words.
Perhaps it’s also time to check your politically correct privilege. If you were a conservative white male saying those words, you would have been fired within hours. You even went on Fox and Friends and still couldn't apologize.
Without question, your over-the-top words are unacceptable in American political discourse, and you deserve to be fired by Fox News.
