Alinsky Rule Number 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”
After more than 15 whistle-blowers expressed concerns about expedited visas for Nevada casino investors, Harry Reid called them “whiners.” Interesting, given that Reid is from the party of whiners.
Whether it’s race, gender, the War on Women, or the “malnutrition” of fat kids, there is always something for the Democrats to whine about.
From the Washington Times we learn:
Homeland Security Inspector General John Roth earlier this week released a report accusing then-USCIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas of showing favoritism toward investor visa applications backed by high-profile Democrats in three different cases, including the casino request about which Mr. Reid personally got involved.
Mr. Roth said the special treatment was brought to his attention by more than 15 whistleblowers — an extraordinary number, in Mr. Roth’s judgment — who believed Mr. Mayorkas was caving to political pressure.
“That so many individuals were willing to step forward and tell us what happened is evidence of deep resentment about Mr. Mayorkas‘ actions related to the [investor visa] program,” Mr. Roth said.
The investigator called the whistleblowers “courageous” and vowed to protect them from retaliation.
But Mr. Reid saw the whistleblowers differently, accusing them of being envious of Mr. Mayorkas’s role in the decision-making.
“The homeland security report came from a bunch of whiners at the Department of Homeland Security who they felt I guess that they weren’t included in my conversation. Maybe I should have called them,” Mr. Reid said.
