The Democrats made a huge deal out of Republican candidate for Florida governor, Ron DeSantis using a common phrase of monkey. But, should Democrats say that term is racist?
Because if they do, they will be condemning at least eleven of their own, including Dick Durbin, Chuck Schumer, and Bernie Sanders. They must be racists, Nazis and white supremacists, too. Right? A Twitter user, whose real name is Rich Weinstein and with the Twitter handle of phillyrich1, compiled 11 liberals using that phrase. I can hardly wait to see how CNN and PMSDNC spin this one. My guess is that they won’t even try. They will just ignore the videos of the Democrats.
Rich Weinstein of Philadelphia, whose Twitter handle is @phillyrich1, tweeted videos of liberals using the phrase, even on the floor of the U.S. Senate and at the press secretary’s podium in the White House press room.
They include Sen. Bernard Sanders of Vermont, Rep. Adam Schiff of California, Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida, Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer of New York (“monkeying around with health care”), Sen. Dick Durbin (“there’s no monkeying around with numbers here”), Sen. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland (“so we can avoid any monkey business with slush funds”), Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, former Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts, former Obama press secretaries Jay Carney and Josh Earnest, and former Clinton White House press secretary Mike McCurry.
Mr. DeSantis came under fire Wednesday when he said his state should not “monkey this up” by electing Democratic nominee Andrew Gillum, who is black.
