Democrat House Members Curse and Rage at Joe Biden After His D.C. Betrayal

Ironically, or perhaps not so, the redline for Democrats when it comes to Joe Biden is the president choosing to do something sane.

As RedState previously reported, Biden told Democrat lawmakers on Thursday that he would not veto a bi-partisan resolution that overrides a new Washington, D.C., crime bill. The updates to the criminal code stirred controversy because they would lower penalties for violent crimes like carjackings and armed robbery. It was so bad that even far-left Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser vetoed it, before the even more radical city council overrode her.

Given the out-of-control crime problem that exists in D.C., you’d think this would be an issue where federal Democrats come together to do what’s obviously best. Oh, who am I kidding? No one would expect that from the party that wants to defund the police. Instead, 173 House Democrats voted against the common sense resolution to override the criminal code changes, and they are very angry that they were betrayed.

Per Fox News, the expletives have been flying as Democrats rage at Biden.

According to The Hill, some of these Democratic Party lawmakers are so outraged over Biden’s decision that they’ve resorted to blasting the White House in expletive-laden epithets. One told the outlet that this is “F—ING AMATEUR HOUR.”

The same lawmaker claimed that the White House “f—ed this up royally.” Others said Biden’s decision was “disappointing.”

One particularly frustrated anonymous congressman gave an expletive-laden statement to The Hill via text message. The lawmaker said, “The White House f—ed this up royally.”

He added, “So a lot of us who are allies voted no in order to support what the White House wanted. And now we are being hung out to dry.” In all caps, he declared, “F—ING AMATEUR HOUR. HEADS SHOULD ROLL OVER AT THE WHITE HOUSE OVER THIS.”

This is Twilight Zone stuff. Democrats seemingly never get angry at Joe Biden, but his not allowing D.C. to become an even worse, crime-infested hellhole is a bridge too far? That’s the thing that sets them off?

Really, what is the argument here? Is it that violent carjackers have been punished too harshly? That armed robbers have it too tough? For the life of me, I can’t fathom the mindset of a person who looks at the crime problem in D.C. and thinks, “you know, we are just being too hard on all these criminals.”

I guess anarchy really is the religion of the left. They truly believe that reducing penalties and letting even more dangerous people out of jail will magically lower crime and make things more “equitable.” What about the victims? What about the people who will lose their property, and in some cases, their lives? Do these raging House Democrats simply not care about that? That’s rhetorical, of course.

Honestly, even though I know it’s for selfish reasons (Biden wants to defuse the soft-on-crime talking point before the next election), at least the president is doing the right thing. I can’t say the same for so many in his party who would rather watch the world burn in the name of social justice than help people who desperately need help.
