Democrats are getting profane in their pronouncements. Profane as in four-letter words. Speaking to party faithful last month democratic Party Chair Tom Perez said, “Republicans don’t give a s**t about people.” New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand took it a step further, getting pretty randy in an a magazine interview, telling the reporter, “If we’re not helping people, we should go the f**k home.” And then she let a few more f-bombs fly after that. What’s happening?
“I think this is going to hurt the Democrat Party. I think it might even be a sign of the Democratic Party imploding,” says former Texas Republican Party chair, now a board member of the National Eagle Forum, Cathie Adams. “It is absolutely not necessary to use curse words to make a point.”
She makes a valid point, but don’t expect D’s to change tactics, Adams says. “I think just like it was so out of step for Democrats to think if Planned Parenthood wanted to sell baby-parts it was okay. This is in the same vein.” President Trump has been known to use colorful language in his day, but has tempered his language since assuming office. Maybe Democrats are trying to imitate him.
