Green Room

Video: No debt please, we’re Democratish

posted at 1:01 pm on February 27, 2013 by


During a House Financial Services Committee hearing Tuesday on the budget, two Democrats complained after House Financial Services Committee chairman Jeb Hensarling instructed that two monitors in the hearing room display a real-time running national debt clock.

California Rep. Maxine Waters and Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison both issued complaints about the displays, according to video of the hearing.

“Clearly it is a political prop designed to message ideologically,” Ellison said.

Math is now … ideological. And this is only the second-silliest appearance by Ellison this week.

Math is considered propaganda under the Obama Truth & Liberal Freedoms Act passed the the Republican Congress in 2011.

Expect to see more of this. Even mentioning the debt is ideological and offensive.

Everyone knows math is racist. That was proven during the debates over ObamaCare.

“Clearly it is a political prop designed to message ideologically,” Ellison said.

BUT, if you are going to have a speech advocating gun control, you go ahead and have as many props on the stage as you can, right?

The inmates are truly running the asylum. I only wish that was an exaggeration. Ellison is down a quart or two on cognitive thinking, but that’s SOP for both he and Maxine Waters.

We’ve laughed at the Dems time and time again for having, hands down the craziest elected representatives, but the joke is on us and generations unborn. I didn’t say it was a funny joke, more like Bill Maher level material. Sad times indeed.
