Chris Murphy’s Re-election Plan

Democratic senators from Connecticut enjoy such safe seats that they can get away with virtue-signalling like this:

Donald Trump’s long-awaited Muslim ban became a reality today. No, you might say, it’s not actually the proposal he outlined during the campaign. True, the ban doesn’t cover every Muslim globally, just a set of Muslims from countries Trump perceives, rather arbitrarily, to be dangerous.

But today’s announcement is anchored in his campaign rhetoric, and the fact that every country on today’s list is a Muslim-majority nation confirms that he meant what he said – that Muslims are dangerous and need to be treated differently than any other set of people.

Is this the primary issue that Chris Murphy wants to fight the 2018 election over? Good luck! I am sure his Republican opponent would love that. The campaign adds write themselves:

Chris Murphy wants to re-settle millions of devout Muslims from countries like Syria and Somalia, foreigners who believe … [insert a bunch of (scary!) true facts about what Muslims in these countries believe about, say, homosexuality, female genital mutilation and the appropriate role of women in society] … Generic Republican Challenger [perhaps female, perhaps a veteran] wants to keep Connecticut safe for the Americans who live here. Who do you want representing you in the Unite States Senate?

There are not a lot of things that could lose Chris Murphy his Senate seat. Becoming the leading voice in favor of more Muslim immigration might just be one of them . . .

Murphy sounds about as intemperate as Trump. One more reason to stay home on election day.

Thanks for thinking of the politics, Dave! Too many people get hung up on the cruel, pointless, dire consequences of Friday’s executive order — the families it’s hurting as we speak, or the rapid erosion of our international standing and national interest it’s presently causing. These people are, of course, saps — the REAL pros know that worrying about republican campaign pitches for fall 2018 is the way to go. Gotta keep your eye on the ball.

If you’re going to concern troll an Eph trying to do something good to push back against the moral monster(s) in the West Wing and their ongoing crusade against decency and the rule of law, please do it on your personal blog.

Shorter Dave – if Chris Murphy acted more like Joe Lieberman, he’d really cinch up this Connecticut senator thing.

In the meantime, our government is run by out-and-out maniacs:

Ephblog readers maybe surprised to learn that Chris Murphy was endorsed by the Communist Party USA.

See, http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2012/11/01/senate-candidate-murphy-endorsed-by-chair-of-connecticut-communist-party/

I don’t think the voters of CT are doing us any favors by re-electing him. For more information about elected officials in the U.S. who have Communist and/or Jihadi ties, please check out Trevor Loudon’s documentary film, The Enemies Within. Here’s my review:
