Guess who says that Republicans should stop demonizing their opponents?

posted at 4:05 pm on October 19, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

Let’s see … would this be the same woman who accused Republicans of wanting to “literally drag us back to Jim Crow days“?  The same Democrat who said that a failure to agree with Democrats on spending amounted to something “almost like dictatorship“?  The member of Congress who described Paul Ryan’s Medicare reform as “throw you to the wolves,” which two different media outlets exposed as completely false?  The same DNC chair who produced an ad attacking Ryan’s plan by pushing an old lady out of a wheelchair and over a cliff?  The woman who told the House Budget Committee that Ryan’s overall budget amounted to a “death trap for seniors” and “a tornado through nursing homes“?  Is this the same party as a Congressman who accused the Tea Party of wanting to see African-Americans “hanging on a tree”?


And guess where she said this?  Of course — on the same network where Martin Bashir analyzes the Tea Party by declaring its attendees as possible psychotics, Dylan Ratigan accuses Tea Party organizers of having Nazi sympathies, and Chris Matthews accuses conservative activists demanding spending cuts as fomenters of civil war.

We’ll keep that advice in mind, Debbie Downer.  Maybe you should as well.

Good grief! She sounds so stupid.

bloggless on October 19, 2011 at 4:18 PM

That’s because she is.

chewmeister on October 19, 2011 at 6:16 PM

This’ll probably get me creamed but…am pretty disappointed in the comments above attacking her appearance. The projection, the lying, the risible hypocrisy etc etc — those aren’t enough with which to mock and harangue her into next week?

Let’s give her the treatment she so richly deserves – and with the wit we all know Hot Air-ers can fill a thread with. This one? Not so much.

Just sayin’,

U, G, L, Y

She ain’t got no alibi!

Beauty is skin deep, but ugly is to the bone

Don’t you just L.O.V.E. the yachts in the background?

run on your record, Debbie. Run!

Key West Reader on October 19, 2011 at 6:25 PM

Agreed. Very ugly all around. Not to demonize her for how can one demonize a demon?

Sherman1864 on October 19, 2011 at 6:44 PM

Occupy Debbie Downer?

Not even with bifidis’ ying-yang.

Derpy Debbie would make a fortune renting her head out as a balloon.

We must understand the mind of a Liberal, if it is true then it is not demonizing. They consider anything a Liberal wants to say about a Conservative Republican, especially Tea Party Members, to be facts. Since they are facts they are not demonizing.

I wonder if they will wear their patriot suits?

Sorry but these ME-OWS sound like a bunch of spoils kids who have never had to earn a living

DSchoen on October 19, 2011 at 7:45 PM

ah-ha, the brainless, inbred Cocker Spaniel is at it again. She’s projecting her own prejudices onto Conservatives.

It’s clear that she can’t understand normal thinking.

CatchAll on October 19, 2011 at 7:48 PM

I can’t even watch this. The “hypocritical d0uchebag” level is just waaaaay too high…

Dopenstrange on October 19, 2011 at 8:03 PM mean toilet bowl in the first stall of the Post Office restroom, don’t you?

The War Planner on October 19, 2011 at 5:20 PM

Toilets at the Post Office.


GrannyDee on October 19, 2011 at 8:52 PM

Can I still post on Ed’s posts?

bloggless on October 19, 2011 at 9:49 PM

I have always been a pro-life person. However, Debbie and Nancy do challenge my position.

joelj31 on October 19, 2011 at 10:31 PM

Sherman1864 on October 19, 2011 at 6:44 PM

Absolutely insightful, perceptive, succinct, truthful, and an example of excellent writing!!! As my old college mentor reminded me often: “It takes great thinking to create great writing!!’

I’ve come to the conclusion that liberals like Ms. Schultz believe that conservatives are evil and that what they are doing isn’t demonizing. it is, rather, calling out conservatives on their evilness. Not having either much of a sense of humor nor an ability for introspection, the contradictions of their words versus their actions never occurs to them. Thus, they are impervious to both common sense and logic. But it is important to know where they are coming from.

BTW, everytime I hear about Ms. Schultz, Robert Heinlein’s book “A Door Into Summer” pops into my head. There’s a character in said book who is about as self-aware as the DNC chair…

“Negative demonization” seems classic to me. Demonization is a negative. You demonize a person to have him perceived as evil. Negative is, well, another negative. So we have two negatives piled on each other. Is negative demonization something that removes the stigmata of “demon” from somebody?

For an elitist this broad surely is poorly educated.

Funny how that works out. Eight or twelve years at a liberal arts college and you’re totally stupefied.

Not to mention, now you’re so well indoctrinated that you never, ever have to doubt yourself again. You’re always right, so why bother questioning your ideas?

Squiggy on October 20, 2011 at 5:23 AM

“It’s irresponsible for a political party to engage in that kind of negative demonization…”

You mean there’s positive demonization, Debbie?

Words, just words.

Get out that ugly stick and smack her in the balls. How can she spew that crap with a straight face?

Rep. Wasserman-Schultz is a prime example of a delusional leader who depend primarily on subjects who are highly dependent, which is a must.

Recent observations of Rep. Wasserman-Schultz outburst, such as those in the clip presented, clearly show she is loosing control and resorting to smear politics in a vane attempt to regain control of her constituents through the most vicious smears possible – personal bigoted smears that begot Political Correctness (PC).

However, her actions are back firing and giving the right the information they need to emphasize that the left are out of touch with reality.
