In 1977 country singer Johnny Paycheck popularized a song entitled “Take this job and shove it.”

Take this job and shove it
I ain’t working here no more
My woman done left
And took all the reasons
I was working for

You better not try to stand in my way
As I’m walking out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain’t working here no more

The rest of the lyrics can be found here

Yesterday Donald Trump likened the treatment being inflicted on him by the House Democrat Secret Police as a “lynching.”

It was met with much derision- “fury” even.



“That is one word that no president ought to apply to himself,” the South Carolina representative James Clyburn, the House majority whip, said on CNN. “I’m not just a politician … I’m a product of the south. I know the history of that word.”

The California representative Karen Bass, chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, told CNN Trump’s “lynching” tweet was consistent with his pattern of throwing out “racial bombs” to give “red meat” to his base when his back is against the wall.

democrats immediately leaped to prove what a collection of hypocritical morons they are

In 1998 Jerry (the Hutt) Nadler accused Republicans of running a “lynch mob” against Bill Clinton

I am the president’s defender in the sense that I haven’t seen anything yet that would rise, in my opinion, to the level of impeachable offense. …

I wish we could get this over with quickly. … In pushing the process, in pushing the arguments of fairness and due process the Republicans so far have been running a lynch mob.

Then there was Greg Meeks

Here’s CNN

And I can state unequivocally after watching Thursday’s Benghazi House committee hearing and considering the email transcripts, media statements, debates and intense partisan focus on the former secretary of state for the past few years that she has been treated unfairly. Unprofessionally. And frankly, disrespectfully.

I believe that like Justice Clarence Thomas before her, she has been publicly lynched in a way that we Americans only reserve for uppity black men and uppity professional women who don’t know their place. She has been dragged through the media and partisan mud of Capital Hill politics and asked to answer questions that she has already answered. She has been attacked. Accused. And berated by members of Congress who should know better.

How about Harry Reid and John Kerry?

And no discussion of hypocrisy would be complete without Quid Pro Joe Biden who today said:

But back then:

Wikipedia describes “Lynching” this way

Lynching is a premeditated extrajudicial killing by a group. It is most often used to characterize informal public executions by a mob in order to punish an alleged transgressor, convicted transgressor, or to intimidate a group. It can also be an extreme form of informal group social control, and it is often conducted with the display of a public spectacle (often in the form of hanging) for maximum intimidation.[1] Instances of lynchings and similar mob violence can be found in every society.[2][3][4]

And there is this little tidbit

 Tuskegee Institute records of lynchings between the years 1880 and 1951 show 3,437 African-American victims, as well as 1,293 white victims.

So democrats,

Take your lynching outrage and shove it

I ain’t puttin’ up with it no more
