As many of us have written here previously about the successful strike against Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Iraq that took place a couple of weeks ago, all Democrats had to do was not look crazy, to just point out it was good that Soleimani was not a threat in the region anymore and move on.
Unfortunately for them, they simply have not been able to do it. Some examples of this are former DNC chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) saying Soleimani was a bad guy, but that that was irrelevant because Trump really struck as a way to wag the dog when it comes to impeachment.
After acknowledging Soleimani’s evil nature, Never Trumper Jennifer Rubin joined fellow NTer David Frum, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) and Pete Buttigieg in suggesting that Trump was actually partially if not fully responsible for the downed Ukrainian jetliner struck down in Iran.
This in spite of the fact that Iranian leaders themselves admitted they accidentally targeted the plane, which was carrying 176 passengers and crew members. None of them survived.
While reading about what they said is infuriating enough, watching Democrats as they make these declarations in front of the cameras on the record just makes them look so much worse.
The Free Beacon’s David Rutz put together a video compilation of just some of the numerous times Democratic presidential candidates like Joe Biden, Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, Buttigieg, members of Congress, and liberal commentators made similar arguments:
As I’ve said before, this is not normal behavior from normal people reacting to the death of a murderous terrorist. TDS has consumed these Democrats. To call it “sad” would be a massive understatement.
