The latest round of congressional hearings didn’t go as leftists hoped.
First, the former ICE director schooled AOC. Then, he torched the Democrats.
Former ICE Director Tom Homan is sick and tired of the false narrative liberals constantly promote. And as AOC, Gerry Connolly, and others recently learned, Homan isn’t afraid to speak his mind.
As Fox News elaborates:
Speaking Friday before the House Oversight Committee hearing, Homan delivered a fiery defense of border agents, pushing back against Democrats’ claims about conditions at detention centers along the border. In particular, Connolly, D-Va., blasted the Trump administration for “hardly humane care” being given to migrant families.
“If you don’t like this, do your job. Fix it,” Homan told lawmakers.
Obviously, Homan is pretty passionate about his life’s work.
And he won’t sit back while some leftist twists it. Especially someone like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who recently came under fire for fake photos she posted to manipulate the border narrative.
Who would you trust more? The guy knee deep in the trenches, or the lady with the camera? Obviously, it’s easy to understand how Honan lost his composure.
“I thought about getting up and throwing that man a beating right in the middle of the room because when you tell someone who has spent their career saving lives that I don’t care about dying children and I’m a racist, that’s where I broke,” he said.
Homan said Democrats repeatedly made false accusations and would not let him respond, arguing the hearing was “political theater” and not about transparency.
“They didn’t want to hear the truth, they wanted to push their narrative and not let me speak. … They wanted me to get up and walk out and I wasn’t gonna give that to them,” he said, adding that his answers were directed to the American people.
Homan said he was invited to the hearing by Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and was hoping to “tell the truth” about the situation at the border.
“The media controls everything. Other than Fox News, I don’t know anyone else that wants to educate the American people about what’s actually happening at that border.”
Clearly, Democrats resort to race pimping when they’ve run out of false narratives to throw out there. The Russians didn’t do it, so it must be the white people.
We now live in a time in where denigrating all things “American” is popular. Sadly, even members of congress encourage their constituents to play the race card.
I’m reminded of an article Kevin Jackson wrote about Maxine Waters:
In addition to wasting her breath crying for impeachment, Waters chided black people to stand up and throw down the race card at every given opportunity.
As Waters put it:
Black people, you better get controversial. You better be controversial. You had better call it like it is. We have been shut down because others have defined us. When they said to us about 10, 15 years ago, oh, she’s playing the race card. You should say yeah, and I’ve got a lot more I’m going to play.”
Waters reference the terrorist hate group Black Lives Matter, warning Leftists not to run from them, but to embrace them. I was reminded too of Nancy Pelosi’s comment to, “Embrace the suck!”.
That’s all liberals can do at this point. Because the ‘suck’ is going to keep on growing as democrats continue to lose ground. Especially when we get to election night.
