(NationalSentinel) If you’re a radio or TV host and you’re looking for a GOP lawmaker to turn a great folksy phrase on a dime during an interview, it’s safe to always book Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.).
His take on the second Democrat debate is not only priceless but, as it happens, it’s spot-on.
Remarking about how the majority of candidates on stage in Detroit on Wednesday were championing socialist policies, Kennedy said it didn’t matter if they are ‘moderate’ socialists or hard-core.
A socialist is a socialist, he said, adding that the only thing “missing” from the debate was the “Cuban National Anthem.”
“I’m not buying the story line of progressives vs moderates,” Kennedy said in an interview with Fox News — which is the narrative being pushed by the Democrat-aligned “mainstream media” because they are all panicking over the radical nature of most 2020 Dem proposals.
“I would remind you that the lesser of two socialists is still a socialist, and what I heard last night, even from so-called less liberal candidates, and I’m not impugning their integrity, but even from the less liberal candidates, I heard a job-killing, soul-crushing socialist agenda. The only thing missing was the Cuban national anthem,” Kennedy continued.
“Same old stuff. Socialism, illegal immigration, abortion, socialized medicine or moral goods, free enterprise, border security, sanctity of life, you’re on the job health insurance those are all moral bads and at the rate my Democratic friends are going, the American people are going to have a very stark choice at the end of this election,” he said.
“It’s going to be growth vs redistribution. It’s going to be, ‘do you believe in freedom or more free stuff?’ And my Democratic friends want to pay for that more free stuff out of your bank account,” he added.
Without question, leading Democrats are pushing far-Left policy proposals including free healthcare for illegal aliens, higher taxes on ‘the wealthy’ and the country’s job-producing corporations, open borders, and gun control.
But also without question, Kennedy has their number.
