Jim Jordan Equates American Liberals With Slaveholders And Nazis

 

According to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the so-called “radical left” in the United States is just as big of a threat as slavery and the Nazis were.

Yes, he actually said that.

Appearing on Seb Gorka’s Newsmax show over the weekend, Jordan opined:

“Every third generation in this country has had to do something big. You think about the Founders and what they did when they declared why we’re going to be an independent country, what they had to overcome, the greatest military in the world. They did it.”

The Ohio Republican then moved on to slavery and Nazis:

“Three generations later, Lincoln and the Americans then held the country together, got rid of the evil of slavery. Three generations later, we defeated imperial Japan and Nazi Germany, the evils that those two countries represented and the greatest generation won that war.”

Democrats are now the biggest threat to the country, Jordan continued:

“Here we are three generations later and the assault is from the radical left. We have to step forward and do our part like previous generations of Americans have done. I think we’re up to the task.”

Nazis? Slavery? That’s an interesting comparison, especially since it’s the Republicans who are trying to make it almost impossible for people of color to vote and have members of their congressional caucus who have hobnobbed with known white supremacists.

The Nazi comparison is also rich given that today’s GOP was eager and willing to steal the 2020 election for Donald Trump and allow him to rule with an iron fist no matter how disgusting (remember the migrant camps on the U.S.-Mexico border) his policies became.

Sorry, Jimbo, but it sounds like you’re engaged in classic psychological projection: Accusing others of what you know you’re guilty of.

Fox News WTF?!

Clueless Bartiromo Asks Jim Jordan Why There’s No Money For The Border Wall In Biden’s Infrastructure Bill

Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo said Sunday she simply cannot understand why 13 House Republicans voted for President Joe Biden’s $1.2 billion infrastructure bill, which will be signed by the president on Monday at the White House. After all, she noted, it didn’t contain any funding for the border wall that was one of former President Donald Trump’s pet projects.

On “Morning Futures,” Bartiromo told Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH):

“Where is the accountability? What would your colleagues, thirteen Republicans, vote for this bill when there is not a dime in it for the border wall?”

Jordan seemed unsure why Bartiromo was attacking him for what his colleagues did:

“Yeah, I mean, I don’t know. I don’t know what’s going to happen. I wish they wouldn’t have voted for it. I wish this thing hadn’t have passed, there is simply no accountability for how we spend taxpayer dollars in the Biden administration.”

Those 13 Republicans voted for the infrastructure bill because they know it’s going to be good for their districts and states. Even Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) called the package a “godsend” for his state:

“We have a lot of infrastructure needs, both in rural areas and with big bridges. It’s a godsend for Kentucky.”

The wall, on the other hand, was never anything but a political stunt by Trump to appeal to his racist base of supporters who hate the very thought of anyone being allowed to seek a better life in the United States, even though most of us wouldn’t be here now were it not for immigration.

Sorry, Maria, but your question is almost a stupid as your opposition to rebuilding the roads, bridges, and other crumbling infrastructure in this country.

Congress Elections GOP GOP Whining

Jim Jordan Is About To Be Redistricted Right Out Of His Congressional Seat

Rep. Jim Jordan’s (R-OH) dream of another term in the House of Representatives is in serious jeopardy based on a redistricting map that has been submitted which would all but guarantee that the controversial congressman will lose in the 2022 midterm elections.

That map, according to Fox News, has set of howls of protest from supporters and allies of Jordan:

The Buckeye State’s Senate Republican Party proposed a redistricting map last week that turned heads and drew ire from Jordan’s allies.

According to the proposed map, Jordan could be billed up against Democrat Rep. Joyce Beatty of Ohio for the 4th Congressional District’s seat.

According to Kevin Eichinger, a spokesperson for Jordan, the motive of the Ohio GOP is clear: To assure the incumbent cannot possibly win reelection:

“John Boehner tried to draw Mr. Jordan out 10 years ago. It didn’t work then. It won’t work now. Mr. Jordan is running for reelection.”

If that’s the case, then why even bother to comment on the matter? Sounds like the real fear within the Jordan camp is having to run against a black woman in a new district that would have an even greater number of African-American voters. Jordan, as you might expect, has never been popular in the black community.

Earlier this year, Democrat Jeffrey Sites announced he would be running against Jordan next year. Sites has done well with fundraising and also has an active presence on social media.

The new map does indeed change the makeup of the district Jordan currently represents:

Of course, no one is more to blame for possibly costing Jordan another term in office than he is. His confrontational style and fanatical worship of failed, one-term former President Donald Trump haven’t exactly endeared him to many in his district.

Additionally, Jordan’s inconsistent statements on the issue of sexual assault that took place inside the Ohio State University men’s wrestling program while he was an assistant coach on the team has also cost him support.

Former wrestlers allege Jordan knew some of the students on the team were being molested and raped by the team doctor, Richard Strauss. Jordan never reported any such abuse to the university.

Eric Swalwell Trolls Jim Jordan On Twitter: ‘Ohio Should Mandate Sexual Assault Reporting For Coaches’

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) seems to have a pathological need to draw attention to himself despite the fact that such attention usually comes back to bite him right on the ass.

Such is the case with a tweet Jordan sent out regarding vaccine mandates, according to Mediaite:

While many prominent conservatives have spoken out and even banned mandates against Covid-19, few have suggested there should be such prohibitions against all vaccine mandates. But on Tuesday, that’s appeared to be what Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) did, tweeting on Tuesday that his state should ban all vax mandates.

Really? All vaccine mandates should be banned? Does that include childhood vaccinations which keep our kids and school safe? Or would Jordan prefer if students were missing months of classroom time because they were constantly contracting one disease after another? Some would even wind up dead as a result, but at least the congressman would have an issue he could put on a bumper sticker.

That led Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) to fire off a devastating response to Jordan, referencing the sexual abuse scandal that took place while Jordan was a wrestling coach at Ohio State University. It has been alleged that Jordan knew abuse was taking place but didn’t report it to university administrators or the authorities:

That’s what you call burning someone down to the ashes on Twitter.

Well done, Congressman Swalwell.

Jim Jordan Owns Himself With Snarky Tweet About Constitution Day

It’s safe to say that Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) is one of the most hated members of the House of Representatives. There are several reasons Jordan is so universally disliked, but the main one is because he’s an overbearing asshat who enjoys attacking anyone he disagrees with, even when all he accomplishes with such confrontations is putting his own ignorance on display for the world to see.

Back in late July, Jordan tried to bully Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and he fell flat on his face:

And now we have Congressman Jordan sending out a sarcastic tweet about Constitution Day:

Democrats have indeed read the Constitution, but Jim and his buddies over in the GOP seem to think its protections only apply to them. They want to punish anyone who doesn’t worship the way they do or who doesn’t believe it’s merely a “protest” when thousands of domestic terrorists storm the Capitol and urinate in the halls where some of this nation’s greatest statesmen once walked.

Democrats also don’t try to keep women from making their own reproductive decisions or give massive tax breaks to the richest Americans, the very people who least need them. And Democrats damn sure don’t blindly support a lifelong con man who tramples on the rights of anyone who disagrees with him while he goes about breaking any and every law thinks doesn’t apply to him.

Jordan’s snarky posting was met with plenty of responses, most of them reminding him of his own hypocrisy:
