The left at all times makes use of race to weaponize their arguments, Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., stated on Thursday in response to House Democrats calling President Trump a White supremacist in the course of the impeachment proceedings.
“You Black Americans and you have Hispanic Americans who voted for Donald Trump, who support Donald Trump as well, so, I think that this lying is something the left always does,” Donalds informed “Fox & Friends.”
Donalds stated that the rioting on the Capitol was “wrong” and to declare that President Trump is a “White supremacist” is “equally as wrong.”
“They always try to bring race into something in order to weaponize their arguments, to make people just frankly be quiet, to shut up and to sit down,” Donalds stated.
The House of Representatives Wednesday made historical past by voting to impeach President Trump for a second time for “incitement of insurrection” after a mob of his supporters besieged the Capitol on Jan. 6 in a failed try to cease the certification of President-elect Joe Biden‘s electoral faculty win.
The House voted 232-197 to impeach the president. Ten Republicans joined with Democrats.
Trump has only one week left in workplace, however the supporters of the impeachment push say Trump is simply too harmful to keep in workplace a minute longer. The impeachment decision condemns Trump for spreading lies that he gained the election in a landslide and whipping up a crowd of supporters in Washington D.C. earlier than the riot that killed 5 individuals, together with a Capitol Police officer.
Donalds stated that the left is utilizing “fascist policies to silence the right.”
“When Ayatollah Khamenei can have a tweet go out calling for the genocide of Israel and Twitter doesn’t flag it and take it down, that just shows you where Twitter’s standards are. They have no standards. Their standards are basically what they feel politically. So, that’s for Jack over at Twitter or anybody else,” Donalds stated.
Donalds went on to say, “It’s very very clear that if you have a dissenting political speech from the conservative side of the aisle from the right, quote-unquote, in America, you are supposed to be quiet, you are supposed to be removed from the public square, but, the left can foment riots, they can do just about anything that they want.”
