After making the boast that she was holier-than-thou, the Sussex County Democrat Chair shut down her Twitter page after a tweet mocking a Disabled American Veteran was found on it. How bad was her page and how many more “offensive” tweets were there that she had to shut her page down rather than simply clean it up?
Former Democrat Chair Leslie Huhn, who was brought in by the Murphy administration to stalk through GOP Chairman Jerry Scanlan’s Twitter pages, also made a holier-than-thou boast a day before a racial comment was made on social media by one of her county committee members. Commenting on a photograph of an interracial couple, the Democrat wrote that he found it “creepy”.
In a “tweet” from February 5, 2019, the Chair of the Sussex County Democrat Committee wrote that she was watching the State of the Union address, when she caught sight of Congressman Dan Crenshaw and tweeted… “who’s the pirate?”
You can view the Democrat’s offensive tweet here…
Congressman Crenshaw of Texas is a former United States Navy SEAL. He served with the SEALs for ten years – including five tours of duty – reaching the rank of Lt. Commander. He served with SEAL Team Three in Iraq. He was wounded in Afghanistan and became a “pirate” – losing his right eye. Emergency surgery saved the vision in his left eye.
Crenshaw earned two Bronze Stars, the Purple Heart, and the Navy & Marine Corps Commendation Medal with Valor. That is some “pirate”.
Democrat leaders like Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill, Lt. Governor Sheila Oliver, and New Jersey Democratic State Committee Chairman John Currie have been rooting through the drawers of their political opponents. They have been quick to condemn others… but what about the dirt in their own cupboard?
Does Congresswoman Sherrill, by her silence, give her assent to the mockery thrown at a fellow Naval officer? Are her loyalties more to the venial politicians of her party?
Lt. Governor Sheila Oliver – a supporter of the anti-Semitic BDS Movement – also claimed she was offended. As a member of the Assembly, Democrat Oliver was one of just three legislators to oppose a resolution that prohibited investment of state pension and annuity funds in anti-Jewish companies that followed the BDS Movement boycott of the Jewish State and Jewish businesses. We would like to know if the Lt. Governor has changed her position on the BDS Movement since taking that vote? We think that should interest the Democrat Party as well.
As for New Jersey Democratic State Committee Chairman John Currie, a venial politician himself, we can hardly expect him to care about someone mocking a disabled American veteran. After all, he didn’t care when one of his own Democrat Party workers was raped by a Murphy higher-up. To Currie, a tweet by an opponent is a greater cause than the rape of one of your own, by one of your own. No wonder voters are disgusted.
The Chair of the Sussex County Democrat Committee has some explaining to do. So do the people who support her.
