Democrats Again Reveal their Own Hypocrisy

Albuquerque, NM –  Yesterday Democrats attacked Donald Trump for what they saw as his inflammatory language, but those same Democrats had no problem at all when members of their own party made inappropriate and inflammatory remarks themselves.

Hillary Clinton herself, who Democrats like Congressman Ben Ray Lujan and Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham enthusiastically support, regularly stoked racist sentiments when campaigning against President Obama in 2008. Democrat Rep. Miguel Garcia had to apologize two years ago when he attacked two fellow Democrats for being “Anglo.”

“New Mexico Democrats are trying to deflect from Hillary Clinton’s and their own long history of inflammatory, racially-charged attacks by unfairly smearing Donald Trump, but this is political hypocrisy at its worst,” said Republican Party of New Mexico Spokesman Tucker Keene. “It’s exactly that kind of political hypocrisy that is driving voters in New Mexico and elsewhere to support Donald Trump.”

It was just a few months ago when Democrat Rep. Moe Maestas was comparing the Drivers License Bill to the Holocaust, and last year Democrat Rep. Patricia Roybal Caballero did the same. Democrat Rep. Javier Martinez this year compared the Drivers License Bill to slavery. Despite their outrageous attacks, the bill passed with bipartisan support and solved critical issues with New Mexico drivers licenses.

“A party with this kind of history of using nuclear rhetoric is in no position to criticize Republicans, and the voters recognize that,” said Keene. “The Democrats should focus on defending their indefensible policy positions instead of trying to deflect from them with baseless hypocritical attacks against Republicans.”
