I love the mood in this country right now that allows Democrats to say whatever they want, no matter how outrageous, with zero repercussions.
A Republican says something remotely controversial, even as a clear joke, and the entire world is then set on fire.
That is exactly what happened after House Minority Leader McCarthy (R-CA) made an obvious joke about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
Saturday night, McCarthy appeared at a function in Tennessee and was gifted an oversized gavel.
The gavel had the words “Fire Pelosi” emblazoned on it, a clear rallying cry for Republicans to gain the majority and remove her from power.
McCarthy, clearly joking, told the crowd, “It will be hard not to hit her with it, but I will bang it down.”
Think back regarding all the statements Democrats made about Trump, to the point Joe Biden talked about punching him… and not a peep was ever said.
Well, after McCarthy’s comments, Democrats went ballistic, including demanding that he resign.
Here are just a few of the reactions from Democrat House members…

Dear @GOPLeader McCarthy: Don’t you think America has had enough political violence? You should never be encouraging or threatening or joking about causing violence to anyone, including the Speaker of the House. You need to apologize for your statement, or resign. https://t.co/jdP2bcmr5c

Where was this outrage when Rep. Waters (D-CA) talked about going after members of Trump’s Cabinet, and she was clearly not joking?
Oh, that’s right, there was no outrage, because Democrats can do and say whatever they want.
