Demonstrating that there is no person they’re unwilling to use as a political pawn, congressional Democrats sent out a fundraising email from Gold Star father Khizr Khan, citing his son’s death as a reason to donate to their organization.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) sent out the fundraising pitch signed by Khan and referencing the death of his son.
Perhaps the two most startling sentences (not in succession but tying the email together) are: “My son died for this country” and “Will you chip in $1 before midnight.”
Is this what Democrats consider honoring and respecting Gold Star families? Seems macabre to say the least.
Take a look at the fundraiser below …
“Donald Trump can’t comprehend the sacrifice from our service members and families like mine,” the email reads. “I know the only way to stop Trump is to win a Democratic House.”
If you were still uncertain as to who they are trying to raise money off of, the subject line reads “My Son.”
During an interview with Morning Joe, Khan said President Trump lacked both “dignity and restraint.”

Is there ‘dignity and restraint’ in the DCCC using a fallen soldier to raise money? Debatable.
Khan is the Trump-era version of Cindy Sheehan, a Gold Star critic of a President the media despises.
He came to prominence after he was trotted out as a speaker at the Democrat National Convention this past summer, asking the future President if he’s ever read the Constitution.
Khan later concocted a story about Trump having his travel restricted because he’s Muslim, though facts would later reveal that wasn’t the case.
Now he’s willing to engage in some ridiculous double standard about ‘dignity and restraint’ when it comes to Gold Star families.

Is there a flow chart that I can consult to decide when I’m to listen in solemn agreement to Gold Star families and when I don’t have to?

It appears we’re only supposed to respect our fallen military members and their families if they’re rabidly anti-Trump.
