Democrats Call Their Sex Abusers ‘Icons’ and ‘Patriots’
One again a Democrat rushes to defend an accused sexual predator.
Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee was on MSNBC Thursday defending long time friend and congressman John Conyers.
In the interview Jackson Lee constantly dodged the “should he step down” question and instead remained defiant on behalf of her pal.
“I believe the decision to go or come will be the decision of that member. As I understand it, Mr. Conyers is with his family. I’m praying for them. I’m praying for the women to make their decision. But all of those decisions are at the behest of the member and I expect that to be the case here.”
When pressed whether or not she believes the women who have come forward accusing Conyers of sexual harassment Jackson Lee responded, “I’ve only known him to be a patriot.”
The Democrats have an interesting way of defining people. Sexual abuse allegations and payoffs aside, has Lee looked at Conyer’s congressional district?
Oh, that’s right. Results don’t matter when it comes to Democrats, particularly black Democrats.
But Lee isn’t the only one who extolled the virtues of Conyers. As we reported, before Pelosi asked Conyers to resign, she called him an “icon”.
Recently Nancy Pelosi declared Congressman John Conyers an icon. So what he’s embroiled in a sex scandal where he used taxpayer money to pay off his accuser. For Democrats, that’s scandal of IDOL proportion.
“John Conyers is an icon in our country. He has done a great deal to protect women – Violence Against Women Act, which the left — right-wing — is now quoting me as praising him for his work on that, and he did great work on that,” she added.
Feminist “Uncle Tom’s”
Ironically, the abusive behavior Conyers demonstrated demeaned women and particularly women of color.
For example, Marion Brown is a black American woman who accepted a payout from Conyers during the years she worked for him. She recently broke her confidentiality agreement with Conyers and spoke to Savannah Guthrie on the “Today” show on her experience with Conyers.
Below is an excerpts from her interview:
Guthrie: Marion: You have come forward and made these allegations. How are you feeling in this moment this morning?
Brown: I felt compelled to stand up and speak out — to be a voice behind these allegations that I made. I want everyone to know it was serious. I did it three years ago and Congressman Conyers came out and called me a liar basically. So, I’m here to say that I’m not a liar.
Guthrie: You describe a course of conduct over the 11 years that you worked for him. I know there was a time in 2005, you say you were in a Chicago hotel room. Can you tell me what happened?
Brown: It was the same kind of thing. He invited me into the hotel and he has undressed down to his underwear and again it was the proposition of sexually satisfying him. He asked me to satisfy him sexually. He pointed to genital areas of his body and asked me to touch it.
Surprisingly, Shelia Jackson Lee isn’t more outraged at how this black woman was taken advantage of by a powerful congressman like Conyers. Would you like a bit of further irony?
Lee, an outspoken Trump-hating woman, kneeled on the House floor in protest against the “mistreatment” of blacks in the NFL by the president.
“That is racism. You cannot deny it, you cannot run for it, and I kneel in honor of them,” she said, dropping to her knees. “I kneel in honor of the First Amendment. I kneel because the flag is a symbol for freedom. I kneel because I’m going to stand against racism.”
But when it comes to the REAL mistreatment of blacks and of women Jackson’s Lee’s response is priceless:
“We don’t know for sure if these allegations are true.” And “I’ve only know Conyers to be a patriot.”
This statement with feminists saying we need to believe women in their allegations and stop shooting the messenger?
We now know without a doubt what the Democratic party stands for. And how they are willing to protect their own at the expense of the very people they say they protect.
In the borrowed words of Hillary Clinton herself: “Tell me with whom you walk, and I will tell you who you are.”
