The Democratic party clearly has a huge problem with racists and rapists in their ranks.

Why are politicians always surrounded by scandals? Do they get special training?

The Democratic party clearly has a huge problem with racists and rapists in their ranks.

No more so than any other group of normal citizens. The natural behavior of individuals is to pursue their own self interests. It doesn’t matter your personal philosophy or political ideology, in the end most people think of themselves and those more closely associated to themselves first. The idea that a Democrat would be any morally different than a Republican is just self delusion.

The problem continues to be situational ethics. Whichever viewpoint benefits one side over the other is what becomes operational. Three years ago President Clinton’s sex crimes and Hillary’s enabling and outright defense were overlooked because Dems and the press supported Hillary’s presidential campaign. Fairfax isn’t accused of anything different than Bill was and Hillary covered for. Now they think Trump is vulnerable for similar bad behavior. Now all of the sudden what was not a big deal yesterday is a horrible crime today. It’s so obvious that the change in ethics is situational and purely based on political calculations. People have even convinced themselves that what is so clearly occurring isn’t really happening.

I get that things change over time but not that things always change in one direction or the other to the benefit of the Democrat party. Rape and sexual assault were just as immoral in the 1990s as it is today. Although black face isn’t a crime it was just as ill thought of in the 1980s as it is today. That hasn’t stopped Ted Danson, Jimmy Kimmel and Joy Bayhar from doing this in more recent years. No one is demanding they be exiled from society. Situational ethics.

“Very very quite on here”, as some “others” like to post on Trump articles.

Yep silence on this one. The black guy is going to be the one to lose his job while two racists stay. So of course liberals are quiet.

Party over anything. If all 3 lose their jobs as they should, a Republican takes over. Cant have that!

I wonder if liberals regret their believe all women, due process doesn’t matter and no innocent until proven guilty positions they had just last month. I doubt it, as liberals seem exempt from those rules for Republicans only.

Its actually amusing the Democrats and the left in general that love preaching gender politics, the race card and the feminist agenda - then what do we find out its these same people that doing exactly what they lecture everybody else about.

My point exactly, but it still doesn’t shake the fact that you have 3 Democrats that are in serious hot water, that is an undeniable fact.

This liberal says Dems it through the justice system. These democrats are people subject to the law just like the rest of us.

If it's proper to let judtivevrun its course here, then why not for Stone?

At the same time, Democrats can’t run away fast enough from the stooges.

Yep suddenly due process and innocent until proven guilty in a court of law are “back in style” for liberals.

Temporarily, until this Dem disaster blows over.

The entire top level of the Democratic Party in VA isn’t representative of the Democratic Party. Sure.

Also, this is not representative of the Democratic Party

Presumption of guilt for Kavanaugh and a pass for Fairfax. The rule of law is for your political opponents.
