As the consensus — even among Trump critics — seems to be that the looming indictment against Donald Trump is “nonsense” and a “blatantly partisan exercise of raw power”, I am reminded that anytime I see any kind of debate online about Donald Trump’s time in office, there will always be some leftist spewing out that the proof that POTUS45 is a conman/a criminal/a traitor/a disaster is that he is the only president to be impeached twice. (Or is it three times? I can’t remember anymore.)
Isn’t this proof, rather, that, in its desire to create a one-party state, the Democratic Party is turning the country into a banana republic?
As it happens, the Democrat Party’s incessant attempts to demonize and bring down Donald Trump, along with the entire GOP, for over half a decade remind me of the Ministry of Truth’s Two Minutes’ Hate program against Emmanuel Goldstein, Big Brother’s “enemy of the people” in the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four.
It continues to amaze me that mainstream media outlets like CNN can “report” (sic) on “Hush money, Mar-a-Lago docs, 2020 election aftermath: Notable investigations, lawsuits and controversies continue to surround the former president” — without giving notice to what Joe Biden has been involved in, both before and after becoming president (sniff sniff, anyone?).
In that perspective, Wikipedia reveals that in the George Orwell novel, the economy department, aka the Ministry of Plenty, is in fact “responsible for maintaining a state of perpetual poverty, scarcity and financial shortages” (thanks to Ed Driscoll for the Instalink).
One thing that surprises me about the indictment in which Stormy Daniels is the central element is that so far nobody, either on the right or on the left, seems to have made what seems to me to be the correct comparison: it is reminiscent of the Bill Clinton scandal known as Monicagate and the impeachment trial of 1998-1999.
Back then, the Clinton defenders then held (hardly wrongly) that the affair with Monica Lewinsky (or with anybody else) should remain private and not be used in politics — “It’s only sex!” (with which I agreed, by the way — although I also now recognize that my viewpoint back then was almost entirely formed by the left-leaning mainstream media).
Doesn’t this prove that the Democrats, and their MSM allies, will say whatever, depending on who is in office? Their guy or the other guy?
1998: Sex is a private matter and it should be nobody’s business who the President (Bill Clinton) fools around with.
2023: The President or former President (Donald Trump), who we were delighted to break a story about making a comment about grabbing women by the pussy, had the audacity to cheat on his wife, and he needs to be punished.
2016: In the meantime, we had 2016: not only were there not a single scandal, not one (sic), during the president’s (during Barack Obama’s) tenure, but the President was an upright family man.
2020: The President or future President {Joe Biden) touches children and holds them close to him while sniffing their hair, and this is not anything that we think is worthy to write a news story about.
They jump from one argument to the other, to the very opposite, 180º, depending on what party the commander-in-chief belongs to.
