One far-left Governor fancies himself a war hero for this jaw-dropping reason

President Obama’s Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel famously said, “You never let a serious crisis go to waste.”

Democrats have long understood that a crisis offers an opportunity to do things that wouldn’t be possible under normal circumstances.

In this spirit, one far-left Governor now fancies himself a war hero for one jaw-dropping reason.

Washington Governor Jay Inslee has compared his fight to ban political speech he disagrees with to Ukrainians fighting for their lives against a would-be invader.

During a Monday afternoon press conference announcing an early end to the indoor mask mandate, Inslee asserted that he was fighting to save democracy by pushing a bill, and bizarrely equated his fight to Ukrainian people fighting for democracy by taking on Russian troops.

Inslee said during the press conference, “Now, if folks wonder why I’m so passionate about this, I think one of the reasons is because our democracy has been under attack right here in our home country as well. Our democracy was attacked on January 6. Our democracy is still under attack by those who continue to allege lies about our election results. And the people of the Ukraine were denied, at one point, assistance because of the defeated president that led to his first impeachment. So I guess … what I’m saying is, I respect what the people of the Ukraine are doing on behalf of democracy because we’re fighting for it too, here in the state of Washington.”

If Ukrainians are valiantly fighting to hold on to their independence from domination by Moscow, Inslee’s personal fight requires some pretzel-like contortions.

The Governor’s bill would have punished lawmakers and candidates with jail if they questioned elections but luckily it failed to gain enough support for passage because of Constitutional concerns.

Inslee doesn’t like those questioning elections now, but he conveniently forgets the four-year temper tantrum that leftists undertook in the wake of the 2016 election.

For four years, Democrats and their Fake News Media allies manufactured evidence to insist that Donald Trump’s election was somehow orchestrated by a shadowy Russian conspiracy.

Inslee’s prescription to “save” Democracy is exactly the sort of thing that stifles it, because here in America, politicians don’t get to decide what their political opponents can and can’t say.

But with the far-left it always comes back to the same thing – rules for thee, but not for me.
