In a staggeringly paradoxical turn, Democrat Chairperson Debbie Wasserman Schultz agreed with the meme host Candy Crowley suggested that "Republicans are a lot scarier" than ISIS or Ebola.
Mrs. Shultz is a notorious fearmonger, who sews seeds of hatred and paranoia of the unknown. She infamously stated that Republicans want to "literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws" in an interview with Roland Smith. She explained that Republicans want to disenfranchise minority voters to prevent Democrats from winning elections.
The meme that the Republicans are racists and the NRA was designed as "the new KKK," as Jason Whitlock recently claimed on the same program Mrs. Shultz made the aforementioned comments, is fairly prevalent today. The reality, of course, is that the KKK was founded by Democrats, Democrats wrote and passed Jim Crow laws despite staunch Republican objections, and the NRA was created by Republican abolitionists to arm recently freed black slaves.
This mentality of screaming about fearmongering when Republicans have legitimate concerns over serious issues like ISIS or Ebola while stoking wildly hyperbolic fear over non-existent threats is a ridiculous yet fairly common phenomenon among Democrat leaders today.
Barack Obama himself once claimed that Republicans did not care about helping students get loans or treating medical patients. He continued by stating that Republicans believe "if some companies are polluting the air your children are breathing, well, that's just the price of progress." The implication Obama is making is that Republicans do not care about children, sick people, or students.
In perhaps the most perplexing example of glaring hypocrisy, Nancy Pelosi recently said the Democrats would do better if they used fear to bring voters to the polls to vote for them, but "we don't fearmonger." Less than two minutes later, she emphatically stated that "civilization as we know it would be in jeopardy if the Republicans win the Senate."
Though it is clear that the Republican Party is guilty of stoking fear to drive votes as well, the trend of late is that Democrats make insane, apocalyptic predictions of global catastrophe while accusing the Republicans of racism when they disagree with policy.
