The Democrat party must have one heck of a sense of humor. They’ll obviously stop at nothing to get a laugh. Take for example a transgender, convicted felon like Bradley Manning running for Congress. Unfortunately, like most of their jokes, this isn’t funny.
Manning announced he is running for the Maryland Senate seat last week. On the ballot as “Chelsea” Manning, he filed all the necessary paperwork with the Federal Election Commission. He began campaigning this week, posting his first ad on social media.
“We live in trying times. Times of fear, of suppression, hate,” Manning narrates as background images of the riots in Charlottesville, Va. fill the screen. “We don’t need more or better leaders, we need someone willing to fight,” he continues.
As you are aware, Manning received a sentence of 35 years for releasing classified military and State Department documents. However, before leaving the White House. Obama commuted his sentence to seven years.
Nevertheless, Manning does not belong in Congress. It’s bad enough that the American people are forced to deal with corrupt politicians. But allowing someone convicted of his crimes the opportunity to run for high office, is beyond outrageous. Add to that his apparent hate for police officers and the notion becomes infuriating.
Manning is facing off against incumbent Democrat Senator Ben Cardin. And although he isn’t likely to win the seat, one still must ask “what if?” The problem with that is that Democrats generally don’t think that far ahead.
After all, as a felon, they don’t want him to have a gun. On the other hand, they will trust him with national security. Think about that for a minute. You see, if it looks good, sounds good, or feels good, leftists are all for it.
As a prominent LGBT activist, Manning is a poster child for liberal progress. Of course, that progress always comes at a hefty price. In this case, that price could very well be American lives. They simply don’t get that you can’t make a silk purse from a sow’s ear, regardless of how much lipstick you use.
