Legislation supported by House Democrats would punish former President Donald Trump long after he’s gone.
The bill introduced on Jan. 25 by Democratic Rep. Linda Sanchez of California is referred to as the ‘‘No Glory for Hate Act.”
“For years, Donald Trump poured gasoline on lies, encouraging racism and hatred, then lit the match on January 6th. A president who has been impeached twice does not deserve the honors bestowed on a former president,” Sanchez said in a news release.
“We should never glorify the hatred Donald Trump personified as President. This bill ensures that there is no glory for hate — not a building, statue, or even a park bench,” she said.
The bill never refers to Trump by name, instead saying that it would “prohibit the use of Federal funds for the commemoration of certain former Presidents, and for other purposes.”
However, the fact that the legislation is tailored to focus on Trump is clear, as the bill’s text says it would ban the creation or display of “any symbol, monument, or statue commemorating any former President that has been twice impeached by the House of Representatives on or before the date of enactment of this Act or has been convicted of a State or Federal crime relating to actions taken in an official capacity as President of the United States on Federal public land, including any highway, park, subway, Federal building, military installation, street, or other Federal property.”
The Irony & Legality
The Irony is that the Democrat Bill “alleged” to target hate, is motivated by hate. The Democrat’s hate for Donald J. Trump. We are also pretty sure the use of an entire Branch of Government to target, harass and attack, an American citizen. This is more along the lines of a totalitarian government, not a Constitutional Republic.
