When those in government are inconsistent it causes doubt in the minds of the citizens. This is no different from when a parent is inconsistent with their discipline. When a child is told “no” one day and then is cheered the next day for the very same action, the child becomes confused, and this often results in a troubled adult. The confusion that inconsistency by office holders brings about is a troubled public. A troubled and confused public loses respect for authority, rightfully so, and the society tumbles into chaos. For the Democrat party in the United States today, this is desirable. The Democrat party is a party adhering to the Marxist philosophy, and the Marxist philosophy states that society must be destroyed so it can be rebuilt based solely on Marxist principles.
Top Minnesota Democrats — including Gov. Tim Walz — are calling for the resignation of far-left state representative John Thompson over reports of past domestic violence allegations. The domestic assault cases were from 2003 to 2010 and included allegations that Thompson punched and choked women, sometimes in the presence of children.
"The alleged acts of violence against multiple women outlined in these reports are serious and deeply disturbing," Walz, a DFL Party member, said in a statement. "Minnesotans deserve representatives of the highest moral character, who uphold our shared values. Rep. Thompson can no longer effectively be that leader and he should immediately resign."
Other members of the Democrat party jumped on the bandwagon. Along with Walz and Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan, DFL House Speaker Melissa Hortman, House Majority Leader Ryan Winkler, and state DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin all called for Thompson's immediate resignation, sending out releases within minutes of one another.
Also calling for Thompson's resignation was U.S. Rep. Betty McCollum, whose congressional district includes St. Paul. "As a mom, advocate for children, and survivor and child witness of domestic violence, I know the deeply traumatic impact of the actions outlined in reports against Rep. Thompson. Someone who has allegedly demonstrated this violent pattern of behavior, especially in the presence of children, is unfit to serve in elected office."
The position of the Democrat party to have Thompson resign because of his history of beating women is certainly understandable, commendable, but terribly inconsistent. Why is Thompson’s behavior of abusing and beating women a reason for him not to hold public service, but the same behavior by the now Attorney General, also a Democrat, is acceptable. Why are the Democrats saying no to female abuse today but cheering it tomorrow.
Keith Ellison is Minnesota's Attorney General. His ex-girlfriend has stated that Ellison used to "beat" her. The allegations also came from his girlfriend's son - who said that the physical abuse was caught on video. Pictures of the women after an Ellison beating also were shown.
The Ellison story was never addressed by any of the people calling for the resignation of Thompson. None of them has ever called for the resignation of Ellison. Why are domestic abuse allegations more serious for one than the other? If my name is Ellison and I am a former congressman, a former official in the DNC, currently Attorney General, a Muslim, and an acquaintance of Farrakhan, am I exempt from the same scrutiny and action to which another would be subjected? If so, why? Does this inconsistency bring stability to and confidence in the presiding government, or does it bring more chaos to an already troubled society?
