Democrats Cock Up Song In Moment of Self-Righteousness

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

I just hate to be a Debbie Downer and rag on the Democrats in their moment of glory. BUT. It really irks my nerves that as Texas House Democrats finished a press briefing in Washington D.C., congratulating themselves on acting like little kids and running away from their jobs in order to block voter reform, they began singing the gospel version of “We Shall Overcome”.

It bothers me that they were flaunting their $100,000 flights on private jets and their chartered bus rides with photo ops reminiscent of kids heading off to summer camp. It bothers me that they were maskless and not social distancing when average Americans have been arrested for doing the same. It bothers me that they packed a case of Miller Lite and left it sitting on the seat during their ride like they were on vacation, because I just KNOW some people are disgusted enough with these Democrats’ actions to wonder if they should boycott the company. It bothers me IMMENSELY that they’re singing a song that became representative of protest, a song that became the anthem of the Civil Rights Movement…A movement that was against the laws, regulations, and beliefs of their very own party. A movement that their party opposed at every turn. A movement that consisted of their party routinely having minorities attacked by dogs, arrested, hosed in the streets, intimidated at home, firebombed at church, and run out of schools. Like holy balls people, you’re literally staging a protest against yourselves right now. It’s the weirdest self-own and I can’t even.

But more than anything, it bothers me that I haven’t heard this song since I was about 10 or 12 and I didn’t recognize it when they started singing it…because they got the lyrics wrong!!! I’ve never laughed so hard! Oh my gosh, I nearly choked. Yeah guys, you’re super woke.

Geez, what twats. The Forbes video of these losers singing “We Will Overcome” has 200 likes and 2,000 dislikes, because the cringe level is THAT high. Here’s We WILL OVERCOME. Different song, my dude. Here is the actual version of what these off-key dingbats were TRYING to sing, in a video that’s a solemn reminder of what the song represented and the atrocities Democrats committed. Someone needs to tell the Texas House Democrats to take another trip to the Civil Rights Museum or something. Borrow one of Nancy Pelosi’s dashikis and see if some of that angst that’s being faked can rub off on them.

Running away from voter reform is NOTHING like what people suffered at the hands of Democrats under Jim Crow. I’m tired of all of these comparisons to the Civil Rights Movement. Of course if they knew more, not only would they realize they’re drawing a false analogy, they’d also realize that they’re on the wrong side.
