Republican Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) has dropped the hammer on the Left, accusing the Democrats of using “the virus to attack our freedoms.”
The congressman blasted Democratic lawmakers over a wide range of issues during a powerful speech on the House floor Thursday.
“The Democrats have objected to counting the presidential electors every single time this century a Republican has been elected president,” Jordan, the Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee said.
“They spent time four years trying to overturn the 2016 presidential election.”
“Democrats spied on a presidential campaign,” Jordan noted, in reference to the Obama administration’s surveillance of President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign team.
“They did an impeachment based on a so-called whistleblower whose identity that only Congressman Schiff got to know.
“This Congress, they closed the capitol, enabled proxy voting, kicked Republicans off committees.
“And for the first time in American history, denied Republicans seats on a select committee that was chosen by the minority leader.
“They are trying to make D.C. a state, end the electoral college, end the filibuster, pack the Supreme Court, destroy executive privilege, take federal control of elections.
“And are currently allowing, in jurisdictions [including New York City], illegal aliens to vote.
“Finally, the January 6 committee has altered evidence and lied to the American people about it.
“Somehow they tell us it’s President Trump and Republicans undermining democracy.
“Give me a break,” the congressman blasted.
“Undermining democracy because we actually think we should show a photo I.D. to vote?
“In one year’s time, while Democrats are doing all that, they have given us record crime, record inflation, record illegal immigration.
“As bad as all that is it’s not the worst.
“The worst is how they used the virus to attack our freedoms.
“How they used the virus to attack our freedoms.
“They use the virus to attack our liberties, even though everything they told us about the virus has been wrong.
“They told us it didn’t come from a lab.
“They told us it wasn’t gain-of-function research.
“They told us it was only 15 days to slow the spread.
“They told us masks work.
“They told us they had a federal plan, Joe Biden said it himself.
“They said there would never be a vaccine mandate.
“They told us people that get vaccinated can’t get the virus, vaccinated transmit the virus and they said there is no such thing as natural immunity.
“Think about this. Think about this.
“At the same time, Democrats require you to put on a mask, show your papers, and an I.D., to get a big mac at McDonald’s.
“They don’t want — they want to allow the federal government to stop states from requiring a photo I.D. to vote.
“This is ridiculous.
“Vote no on this legislation,” he concluded.
