Donald Trump and his supporters face attacks on every front.
The left squeezes every pressure point in American life to punish conservatives.
Now one top Republican resigned for this reason no one could believe.
Florida Congressman Ted Yoho recently confronted Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over her outrageous comments that poor people looking for bread caused the recent spike in shootings and homicides.
Yoho admitted to being abrupt with Ocasio-Cortez and later apologized.
Cancel culture came for Yoho and the Christian organization Bread for the World gave into left-wing pressure and forced Yoho to resign from its board because of fake news allegations that Yoho cursed at Ocasio-Cortez.
“Bread for the World met with Rep. Yoho on Friday and he has resigned from the board of Bread. During that conversation, we reaffirmed our joint commitment to expanding opportunity for men, women, and children around the world and thanked Rep. Yoho for his commitment to foreign aid effectiveness and transparency. Despite these areas of agreement, Bread sought his resignation as an action that reaffirms our commitment to coming alongside women and people of color, nationally and globally, as they continue to lead us to a more racially inclusive and equitable world,” a statement from Bread for the World read.
In a Fox News interview, Yoho stated he never directed any personal attacks at Ocasio-Cortez and limited his disagreement with her to policy.
“Everything was directed at policy and yeah, she thought it was right for people to go ahead and shoplift if you’re hungry. I said, ‘seriously, as many social programs and faith-based programs and all these food kitchens around, the best that you can do is to offer people in your district to go ahead and shoplift — while you’re calling at the same time to defund the police? Those are just absolutely the most frickin’ crazy policies you’ve ever had’ — and I said ‘your policies are disgusting’ and I turned around and walked away,” Yoho told Fox News.
Yoho denied ever cursing at Ocasio-Cortez and told Fox News that Ocasio-Cortez was just making a big deal out of the confrontation to fundraise.
“She’s making hay out of this, she’s fundraising off of this, out in front of the Capitol wearing her COVID mask, playing [music], making fun of this. Yet she’s on the floor crying saying how bad this is but yet she’s out there saying the same thing. You know, it’s disingenuous,” Yoho continued.
The last several years have seen a complete breakdown in civility on the left.
Maxine Waters even went so far as to direct angry mobs of left-wing radicals to stalk Trump cabinet officials at their homes.
Waters – not any Democrats – has never apologized for any of the over-the-top attacks and charges hurled at President Trump or his supporters.
There is no price to pay for being an angry liberal.
But Ted Yoho confronted Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez about her insane comments about a crime wave and the left cancels him in an instant.
