Alabama Democrat Claims GOP is Worse Than ISIS

Democrat Jesse T. Smith is running for Congress in Alabama. On Monday Smith Tweeted: “The greatest country on earth is being bullied from within. Actions of Republicans in Congress are worse than #ISIL,” ISIL is the Obama administration’s preferred name for the Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham, or ISIS.

Smith later deleted the Tweet and apologized.

But how sorry was he, really? According to the Daily Beast … not very.  Fortunately for Smith he’s a Democrat and not some extremist Tea Party candidate. Consequently his outrageous behavior isn’t likely to make it to the nation’s larger nightly news broadcasts. 

Further, Smith offered a non-apology: “I now understand that the Tweet was not the best way to phrase things, but the comments were fueled by my passion to shed light on the atrocities being committed against the lower and middle class of this country.”
