Democrats are continuing to wage their war against former President Donald Trump by proposing a new bill that would strip away benefits from “twice impeached” presidents – including a future burial at Arlington National Cemetery.
Despite it being a month since Trump left office – following more than five years of attacks and failed attempts to remove him from office – House Democrats are now pushing House Bill 484, titled the “No Glory for Hate Act,” to punish him for the Capitol rioting that took place Jan. 6 … even though he was formally cleared of unsupported allegations that he incited the violence.
Taxpayer-funded vendetta against Trump
Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.) first introduced HB 484 on Jan. 26 as a way of continuing Democratic leaders’ vitriolic attack against Trump while characteristically using verbiage inciting racial tension –flying in the face of the Party’s promise to restore peace, unity and civility.
“For years, Donald Trump poured gasoline on lies, encouraging racism and hatred, then lit the match on January 6th. A president who has been impeached twice does not deserve the honors bestowed on a former president,” Sanchez declared while introducing the bill on her website. “We should never glorify the hatred Donald Trump personified as President. This bill ensures that there is no glory for hate – not a building, statue, or even a park bench.”
Rather than working on legislation to improve the lives of their constituents, Sanchez and more than a dozen other Democratic representatives are using taxpayer money to push this bill forward in order to get back at the former president for four years of policies that worked against the radical left’s agenda.
“The No Glory for Hate Act prohibits the use of federal funds for any: symbol, monument, structure, building or public land … commemorating a former president twice impeached by the House of Representatives,” Sanchez announced. “The bill also restricts the benefits given to former presidents who have been twice impeached by the House of Representatives, such as: pension, staff, office travel expenses and burial in Arlington National Cemetery.”
An attempt was made to justify Democrats’ continued relentless attack on the former president, as Sanchez made unsupported claims similar to the ones used by Democratic leaders against Trump since his 2016 presidential campaign began.
“Even though Trump is no longer in office, he should still be held accountable for his actions, and the taxpayers should not foot the bill for his future actions,” Sanchez added. “I can’t imagine sending students in Southern California – or anywhere in America – to a school named in honor of a traitorous president.”
Many consider the impeachments to be little more than a partisan campaign to remove a president who stood up to the radical left and successfully countered eight years of far-left policies instituted by an administration that touted itself as moderate.
“Trump was impeached in Dec. 2019 for two articles of impeachment related to obstruction of justice,” TheBlaze recounted. “He then impeached a second time in Jan. 2020 after the election over one article of impeachment of incitement of insurrection, [but] Republicans in the Senate prevented a conviction in both impeachments.”
What’s really going on here?
As headlines covering the controversial bill broke, many took to Twitter pointing out the ridiculous nature of the proposed anti-Trump legislation.
“How is that legal to create a bill just to target one person?” Ricky Prosnit tweeted Thursday.
The conservative media noted that Sanchez and House Democrats carefully avoided using Trump’s name throughout the bill in an attempt to make the it appear legitimate – and not like a personal vendetta against the former president.
“The bill never refers to Trump by name, instead saying that it would ‘prohibit the use of Federal funds for the commemoration of certain former Presidents, and for other purposes.’” The Western Journal pointed out.
Other Twitter users also argued that the bill is just a way for Democrats to vent their personal vengeance against the former Republican president by punishing him forever.
“The ‘no glory for hate act’ – brought to you by a bunch of people who’ve literally hated him the entire time,” Matt Pollard tweeted Thursday.
Another user, Joseph Carroll, tweeted in agreement: “He is living rent free in their heads, the bloodlust is looming large with this group.”
The ludicrous nature of the bill was also pointed out.
“That seems kinda stupid,” Selxephyz posted on Twitter Thursday. “They failed the impeachment both times, but now they’re just going to pass laws to pretend they won anyway.”
The Fuzz tweeted that House Democrats were acting “Like angry teenage girls.”
