The Republican race to win back the House and Senate has taken a strangest turn. The party has decided to bring forward midterm accusations of extravagant allegations surrounding pedophilia.
That would be an unusual strategy under any circumstances, but indeed odd considering that those in politics involved in pedophilia are mostly Republicans.
Don’t they remember Dennis Hastert – who was Speaker of the House for 8 years – went to jail for abusing four boys and trying to scam the bank $3.5 million to keep one of them quiet?
Have they forgotten former Representative Mark Foley, who tried to seduce the teenage boys he met when they were the pages of Congress? As for Judge Roy Moore, who so blatantly pursued young girls as young as 13 when he was in his thirties that, according to various sources, he was banned from a local shopping mall ? (Even after the charges against Moore became public, then-President Donald Trump supported him in his failed US Senate race from Alabama.)
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee “forgave” Josh Duggar, family values activist and star of the show. 19 Children and Numbers after he admitted to molesting five young girls, two of whom were his biological sisters. There is no record of Huckabee’s pardon, or not, when six years later Duggar was arrested for allegedly photographing children for what the apprehending agent called “the worst of all.” worst” he had ever seen, telling of how it happened to an 18-month-old baby. old.
Sit down Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan, a MAGA favorite who served as an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State University in the 1990s. Members of those teams accused Jordan of denying their appeal. to prevent Dr. Richard Strauss from sexually abusing them (Jordan denies these allegations). Captain Adam DiSabato testified before the Ohio legislature that Jordan called him “wailing, lamenting, begging me against my brother, begging me, crying for half an hour. That’s the kind of cover-up going on there. According to the AP, there are 2,200 fondling and 127 rape cases attributed to Strauss, who died in 2005. When a lawsuit against the State of Ohio, brought by nearly 300 plaintiffs, went to trial. , congressmen may be called upon to take oaths of their actions, or lack of them.
Republicans do not shrink from hypocrisy. In 1997, House Speaker Newt Gingrich tried to kick Bill Clinton out of the Oval Office for having an affair with an intern — while Gingrich himself was having an affair with a committee employee.
It’s almost insanity to accuse Democrats of what they’re doing themselves, bringing up the candidates accused of different, but equally disturbing, crimes.
How Republicans (including Trump and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell) could endorse former NFL star and famous domestic serial abuser Herschel Walker’s bid to unseat Senator Rafael Warnock in Georgia, unless they’re blinded by the need to prove they’re not racist by supporting a Black celebrity? Walker has been credibly accused by his wife and girlfriend of threatening their lives — with his wife saying the Senate hopes to even put a gun to her head.
Maybe Republicans know something we don’t, have something in their hands that we can’t see or have nothing else to say. It was clear that the party was prepared with any kind of systemic ideology to run when it refused to offer a platform in 2016.
Meanwhile, Representative Marjoie Taylor Greene – infamous before she took office for her QAnon concurrence – is shouting that anyone who votes to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson is “pro-pedophile.” , including all three Republicans.
Republicans are showing so loud, no one can hear anything else they’re saying. They are widely expected to win big in the midterm elections, but if they stick with this crackpot strategy, they will take defeat in the jaws of victory. Yes at it.
