An old trial lawyer once asked, “What is the single most important thing in a trial? Answer: A sympathetic victim.”
Whatever you think about the “re-tweets” concerning Congresswoman Omar or Tliab or A.O.C. or even about Sharia Law… there is a real dearth of sympathetic “victims” to this saga. That, coupled with two facts, suggests what is happening has nothing to do with the pretense of outrage by some Democrats.
First, the Democrats neglected to even file candidates for Sussex County Freeholder this year. Yes, the Republicans are running unopposed.
Second, Donald Trump has actually said and tweeted (original content) far worse than anything Jerry Scanlan has been accused of “re-tweeting” and… wait for it… does anyone, in their wildest imaginings, believe that Donald Trump will not carry Sussex County by 60 percent or more? So… the point of this exercise is…???
Yes, it becomes obvious that the intensive efforts by state Democrats in Sussex County are about something else. That something else is Governor Phil Murphy’s illegal Sanctuary scheme.
Over the weekend, top Democrats from around the state huddled in an effort to try to get their Sanctuary State scheme back on track. As we begin to count the first victims of Murphy’s scheme (literally, the body count has begun) and he gets push back from the media, from individual towns and counties, even from elected Democrats – the Murphy team is getting worried. And it’s not just their failing Sanctuary scheme they need to be worried about. Murphy and the Democrats are suppressing victims in a rape case – no, not “tweets” or “re-tweets” but violent, sexual assault, which (unless you are a Murphy Democrat), is one hell of a lot more egregious than a “re-tweet” or even… a “tweet”. Rape trumps Tweet. Always.
Then there is the Democrats’ attack on a Disabled American Veteran, their embrace of a group designed a “terrorist organization” by one of America’s best Islamic allies in the middle east, the Rain Tax, the cuts in funding for kids’ education, their economic failures… jobs, spending, infrastructure, debt… Murphy and his merry crew are a pack of fools.
And now it is going to get worse. What they discussed and decided to do (all of them, the group of them, for which they should be held to account individually and collectively) is to put the New Jersey Democratic Party on record as opposed to the Christian faith because it is “not LGBTQ… enough”. No kidding.
That was the outcome of all that huddling. Desperate to change the focus from their illegal Sanctuary debacle, they came up with this. Maybe the heat got to them?
Just wait until State Democratic Chairman John Currie starts fielding questions from outraged clergymen in his community. We would love to be in on those calls… and we just might be.
The summer keeps getting better and better!
