Let’s see if we can get this straight…we are not supposed to criticize the Justice Department of the FBI, but it is just fine to use heated rhetoric against conservatives. Are those the new rules?
Progressives have no trouble making extreme comparisons between violent terrorist groups who behead their enemies and conservatives from the middle of the country. This is the height of hypocrisy.
Edward Luce is a prime example, he is the associate editor at the “Financial Times.” He posted a tweet about the Republicans in America today. He wrote: “I’ve covered extremism and violent ideologies around the world over my career. Have never come across a political force more nihilistic, dangerous & contemptible than today’s Republicans. Nothing close.”

But Luce was not alone in this sentiment. Former CIA Director Gen. Michael Hayden chimed in on the tweet: “I agree. And I was the CIA Director.”

So, let’s slow down a minute and unpack these jewels on social media. Luce and Hayden are making a case that the GOP is worse than ISIS and al-Qaeda.
Radical Islam today has terrorist groups that have tortured innocent people all across the world. And the Republicans of today are worse.
These guys don’t really believe what they are writing, but our culture is so twisted that they believe it is OK to put it out there. It’s possible they believe that some are so gullible they will believe their nonsense.
The GOP is not an extremist group and most of them do not hold extreme views. But these guys feel just fine in demonizing the whole Party because they disagree with the Left’s platform.
This is not the first time this has happened. Remember that it was the Justice Department that labeled parents who were protesting critical race theory as “domestic terrorists.”
The new label for anyone who questions the raid on Trump’s private residence is “stochastic terrorist.”
Just want to make sure we all know the new rules.
