Former CIA Officer Says He Left Democratic Party Because of Impeachment
A former CIA officer wrote that he left the Democratic Party due to the impeachment of former President Donald Trump, saying that it only serves to exacerbate the political divide.
“For years, Democrats like me have watched with increasing alarm as our own political leaders and activists … have used an endless stream of hateful, violent and ultimately un-American rhetoric that has resulted in billions of dollars in economic damage and given birth to a violent national movement,” wrote Bryan Dean Wright, the former intelligence officer, for the Daily Caller.
Write added that the “modern Left” is infused with “systemic hatred” that has “inflamed profound political divisions and the predictable outcomes that come with them, most especially violence and destruction.”
“The most egregious example came in the summer of 2020, with Leftist race riots that cost upwards of $2 billion in damages,” he added, saying that Democratic leaders didn’t offer condemnations when “fires raged,” property was vandalized, and lives were destroyed.
Asserting that Democratically elected officials incited violence last year, Wright added that during riots, “a woman in New York City threw a Molotov cocktail at four police officers sitting in their vehicle during a riot” and “were unharmed only because the gas bomb failed to ignite.”
“Next, a group of rioters in Seattle tried to seal up the doors of a police precinct and ignite the building on fire, burning cops alive,” he continued in saying. “In all, over 700 federal, state, and local law enforcement officers sustained injuries in violence perpetrated by Leftist rioters. That includes retired St. Louis police Captain David Dorn, who died defending the city he loved from those encouraged by the Democrat Party’s incitement.”
