Over the past five years, I’ve heard the most outrageous statements from Democrats across the nation. Vice President Joe Biden, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Maxine Waters, Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz are among those with some of the most outrageous statements among out national leaders.
But I don’t’ believe any of them can top the recent statement made by Allan Brauer who serves as the communications chair for the Democratic Party of Sacramento, California. Bauer has been an outspoken gay activist and has been involved with LGBT efforts to secure privileged rights over normal people. On Friday, he showed his true self when he responded to a tweet by a Republican.
Amanda Carpenter is a speechwriter and senior communications adviser to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who appears to be one of the leading candidates for the 2016 GOP presidential ticket. Carpenter took to Twitter on Friday, saying:
“GOP beat gun control, changed Obama’s mind on Syria, is holding the line on amnesty. We can defund Obamacare, too!”
Brauer’s response was anything but civil. In fact, it was the most malicious statement I’ve heard in years. His twitted response to Carpenter read:
“May your children all die from debilitating, painful and incurable diseases.”
Carpenter responded, tweeting:
“A California Democrat wished death on our kids. Sigh.”
A number of people took offense to his tweet and began attacking him on Twitter. At one pointed, Brauer tweeted about the attacks, saying:
“Being attacked on Twitter for wishing one of Ted Cruz’s pubic lice to experience the pain her boss is inflicting on Americans.”
After relentless attacks for his vindictive tweet, Brauer finally apologized by tweeting:
“I am truly sorry for my tweet. I was very upset and lashed out. Your kids are not fair game either. My apologies.”
Carpenter said she appreciated the apology, but did not say if she truly accepted it or not. Brauer’s tweet goes far beyond the bounds of decency and reflects the attitude of an upset playground bully.
How many times have you read about someone getting arrested for making idle and meaningless threats to public officials? Let a student post that they wish their fellow students would die and watch the police swarm down on the student and his home. But let a Democrat like Brauer make a malicious statement like he did and as yet, nothing seems to be happening to him.
It’s the Democratic Party that has been championing laws against hate language of any kind. They have succeeded in preventing military chaplains from preaching the truth about homosexuality being a sin because that is now considered hate language. But let a gay person say something even more hateful against someone else, and nothing is happening except public outrage.
If you ask me, Brauer should lose his job as communications chair of the Democratic Party and Twitter should shut down his account. He needs to be held accountable for his words. He only apologized after he received so much negative response and I question just how sincere the apology really was. Many criminals apologize for their crimes after being caught and Brauer is no different.
