(PoliticalLookout.com)- The second Democrat-pushed impeachment hearing of former President Donald Trump is already backfiring, and the latest news that a former CIA officer left the party over the efforts should come as a stark warning to Democrats that their partisan agenda isn’t helping to unify America.
Bryan Dean Wright, a former intelligence officer, told conservative news outlet the Daily Caller that he was shocked by the hateful actions of his party.
“For years, Democrats like me have watched with increasing alarm as our own political leaders and activists have used an endless stream of hateful, violent and ultimately un-American rhetoric that has resulted in billions of dollars in economic damage and given birth to a violent national movement,” he said, referencing the Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots that destroyed huge sections of American cities through 2020.
Wright went as far as describing the modern progressive movement as harboring “systemic hatred” which has “inflamed profound political divisions.” He added that violence and destruction as “predictable outcomes” that come from the Democrats’ hate campaigns.
“The most egregious example came in the summer of 2020, with the Leftist race riots that cost upwards of $2 billion in damages,” he added.
The Senate impeachment hearing is ongoing, with Democrats using tweets made by former President Donald Trump to argue that he incited a violent riot on Capitol Hill on January 6. The former president’s lawyers, however, have argued that the entire proceeding is unconstitutional and that President Trump only ever promoted peaceful protests.
While Democrats try to argue that the former president incited violence, despite specifically calling for peaceful protest, Wright argues that leftists have incited violence.
“A woman in New York City threw a Molotov cocktail at four police officers sitting in their vehicle during a riot,” he said, describing how they were only unharmed “because the gas bomb failed to ignite.”
“Next, a group of rioters in Seattle tried to seal up the doors of a police precinct and ignite the building on fire, burning cops alive,” he added.
Wright also described how CNN anchor Chris Cuomo incited violence when he said, “Show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful.” NPR also published a claim that “looting is a powerful tool to bring about real, lasting change in society.”
“For Democrats like me, we have no choice: we have to leave,” he said. “But where do we go, politically, now that our party can no longer be salvaged?”
“We’re already leaving, it turns out, and joining the new, populist Republican Party,” he added.
Is this a new beginning for the Republicans?
