Howdy y’all, I usually don’t write to ya on Sunday, but this one is just too rich for me to pass up. I was asked about this last night during dinner with my best friend from college and the Army, Gary Potts and his wife, Brenda. I truly thought they were pulling my leg, and then Brenda gave me that “seriously Al” look. And I’ll be doggone, it IS true.
As reported by Fox News, “Chelsea [Bradley] Manning, a transgender [suffering from the mental condition of gender dysphoria] former Army intelligence analyst convicted of leaking classified documents [while in a combat zone], has filed to run for the U.S. Senate.
The Washington Post first reported Saturday that Manning has filed to run in Maryland for the seat of Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin. The Federal Election Commission website shows a Jan. 11 filing for “Chelsea Manning for U.S. Senate” with the party affiliation registered as Democrat — suggesting a primary challenge for Cardin.</em.
First of all, consider this, who wants a convicted felon who leaked classified information to be a U.S. Senator and have access to classified information…only the Democrats.
Second, with that special kind of health insurance that Senators receive, all on the backs of the U.S. taxpayer, who do you think will be paying for ol’ Bradley’s gender reassignment surgery and subsequent hormonal treatments? And who is ok with that…clearly the Democrats. And of course, there’s the obvious question, who is ok with running a felon for federal office who tweets expletives about our law enforcement officers…yeah, we know.
Hmm, I didn’t hear the liberal progressive leftist media ranting about that little tweet from Manning…as I stated yesterday, “duplicitous hypocrisy, “situational ethics,” “feigned outrage,” and “unrighteous indignation” are the calling cards of the left.
Now, we laugh, but if y’all have ever been to Maryland, called the “People’s Republic of Maryland,” this is a very viable possibility.
And now I’m about to say something that will drive y’all a little nuts. I do hope this is a serious bid for the U.S. Senate and that Manning wins the primary. I can think of nothing better than to have Bradley/Chelsea Manning, whatever, be the face of the Democrat Party. I cannot wait to see Rep. Steny Hoyer, Rep. Elijah Cummings, and the others come out and offer their endorsement. Maybe we can even get Oprah Winfrey to come and do a fundraiser, along with all the other entertainment elites. That would be just a grand display of where the Democrat Party is heading, and who they are.
It would clearly give evidence that the Democrat Party is the party of identity politics and have no regard as to the national security of these United States. I do hope the far left progressive socialists we know as the Democrat Party embraces this political escapade and shuns the ol’ white guy, Senator Cardin. After all, having the “first” gender dysphoric U.S. Senator just shows everyone how inclusive and tolerant the left really is. Yep, I can easily see the commercials, national, promulgated all over the country.
And of course, if you don’t think this is just a GRAND idea, then you’re a flat earth, knuckle draggin’, Neanderthal, intolerant, [don’t know why, but they will call you] sexist, homophobe [is that even appropriate?], crazy, insane, out of touch, backwards, deplorable, gun and religion clinging hater.
I think I covered all the denigrating monikers. But that’s the least of my concerns.
What’s most troubling about this declaration by Manning to run, as a Democrat, for U.S. Senate in Maryland is that being a traitor to our nation is now mainstream. Heck, I expect Bowe Bergdahl, who incredibly served not a freaking day in prison, to soon announce his run for governor…somewhere, perhaps Colorado? After all, according to Susan Rice, Bergdahl did serve with “honor and distinction”…that’s what the progressive socialist left calls a deserter who committed treason, costing the lives of American Soldiers.
Hey, President Trump, get off your butt, and either pardon or commute the sentence of Army 1LT Clint Lorance. He could come back to his home state of Texas and run for office…or just stay there in Kansas, where thanks to the Obama administration he has established residence, and run for governor. At least Clint Lorance could say that he stood and fought against the enemy and had them killed.
The real danger of Bradley Manning running for U.S. Senate in Maryland is that there are folks who are actually fine with this…ya know, a traitor being a Senator. Just remember, if elected, Manning will have access to classified information. Then again, if he [and his DNA is male] isn’t allowed to have access to classified information because of his conviction, then why should he be a U.S. Senator?
Oh yeah, I forgot the leftist principle of the “participation trophy.” Everyone gets to play and be whatever they want to be…in their own little progressive socialist delusional world.
Yep, this is FUBAR…and if the folks in Maryland elect Bradley Manning as their U.S. Senator that will be YGTBSM stupid.
