Conservatives need to do more to purge the grifters in their midst

Democrats have elevated this simpleton to a senator and now a prospective president, lauding a parade of emperors with no clothes and no real clue how to design a policy that doesn’t threaten to destroy our economy and sovereignty. Not only do they embrace the socialist antics of Booker’s opportunism, but they also revel in the anti-Semitism of new Democratic #FreshFace Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and the open anti-Catholic bigotry of Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii. Nary a Democrat steps up to clean the house of hate and grifters. This is how the new Democratic Party was born.

Republicans don’t have to be like that, but unfortunately, they are. For all that the Right has erred in the past, there’s been some promise in recent months. After years of equivocating around the racism of Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, conservatives as a whole finally came out and condemned him following comments depicting clear racist sentiment, beyond a reasonable doubt.

Owens’ schtick as an opportunist low on knowledge and high on hackery has been evident for a long time. Her Hitler comments simply exemplify the worst of it.
