Meet Kshama Sawant

Kshama Sawant is a Seattle city council member, socialist and all around jerk. Yesterday (above) she called for a protest against the election of Donald Trump (which ensued) and for a national shutdown on Inauguration Day.

It is clear that when this young woman was naturalized, she did not receive the requisite training in our history and the meaning of democracy-which was required last I knew.

This is beyond shameful. Although we saw an ugly and messy campaign, the actual election was fair and orderly. What is this idiot complaining about?

One reason students are demonstrating across the nation this week is that they don’t understand the difference between a democracy and a republic. They don’t understand the basis and rationale for the Electoral College in the Constitution. Students rarely recite the Pledge of Allegiance anymore. Students used to be taught this stuff, but no more. When it comes to Islam, they are even more misinformed.

When we are presented, in the end, with a choice between two candidates with 70 percent negative ratings, a certain amount of unease at the net result is perhaps inevitable. But to those who say, if only more people got out to vote, Donald Trump wouldn't be president, the obvious answer is, sure, but then Hillary Clinton would be president.

Ambrose Bierce wrote a poem once about a man who was tarred and feathered by outraged patriots because it was his duty to cast his ballot "for the man o' your choice." He explained that this is something "I very gladly would have done, but you see dear patriots, he has never run."

I'm curious where the "Hell, no, DNC, we won't vote for Hillary" crowd is now. That is, in my seldom humble opinion, a perfectly legitimate position, but, those who took it have no business complaining that Hillary's opponent won the election.

Still, there has to be a shorter, cheaper, less distracting process for identifying the twelve worst candidates in America.

One wonders if she is getting paid by George Soros. Socialists want to distort America. American Patriots have saved it from these scum-buckets

George Soros is a speculator. Surely you know how real red-blooded socialists treat speculators. What was that line from The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy? "First against the wall when the revolution comes." If we're going to talk about patriots, Trump reminds me of those merchants in Philadelphia selling rotten meat and weevil infested flour to the Continental Army. I'd say something nasty about Hillary too, but its not nice to speak ill of the (politically) dead.

Gary Fouse said...

Soros funds every far left cause out there. He is a very dangerous man.

Siarlys Jenkins said...

Indeed he is a dangerous man... but hardly far left. He's a liberal.

Gary Fouse said...

Far left is a spot on description.

Next you're going to threaten to hold your breath until you turn blue if I don't admit that grass is orange and the sky is chartreuse.
