It is ironic when Democrats complain about sensational use of language.
Thanks to progressives, practically every white person in America has been labeled a racist.
But now Democrats are screaming because Republican Sen. John Kennedy suggested that Saule Omarova, whom President Joe Biden has nominated to head the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency – the nation’s top banking regulator – might be a communist.
Kennedy opened his questioning of Omarova at her Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs confirmation hearing asking if he should call her “professor or comrade.”
Distinct from the labels and charges we regularly hear from progressives, there is substance to the senator’s suggestion about Omarova’s proclivities.
No, it’s not that she was born in Soviet-controlled Kazakhstan, or that her degree is from Moscow State University, or even that her doctoral thesis is entitled “Karl Marx’s Economic Analysis and the Theory of Revolution in the Capital.”
It is about how she views the world.
This is someone who will oversee our nation’s banking system that wants to “end banking as we know it” and transfer vast parts of it to government control.
