You know how Democrats are always claiming that Republicans are trying desperately to politicize and profit from the terrorist attacks in Benghazi? Republicans are always trying to invent new reasons to launch another investigation, and it’s all to score political points with their constituents. And to get more donations so they can stay in power longer.
While that may be true with many Republicans, what’s ironic is that the Democrats do exactly the same thing with exactly the same incident to serve as a catalyst for their own donations.
The Democratic National Committee sent out a fundraising e-mail to all their supporters, and guess which event they politicized in order to garner more donations for themselves to, as they say, “elect more Democrats?” They used the Benghazi attack. In their e-mail addressed to “Friend,” they wrote:
…But rather than let the truth stand in their way, Republicans actually doctored emails between administration officials about Benghazi. Then, they released them to the press, trying to pass them off as real in order to create their scandal. Fortunately, they got caught in the act when the White House released all of the actual emails.
And that link takes you to a page where you give them your personal information, after which you continue on to another page where you can “take the next step”; that is, make a donation to the DNC.
At the end of their fundraising e-mail, they have another link to donate in order to help get more Democrats elected. And they used the Benghazi scandal as their springboard to get fellow Democrats outraged to the point that they’d give whatever money they have in order to create more career politicians with D’s after their names.
And for what it’s worth, the Democrats are evidently still trying to push some conspiracy theory about Republicans secretly doctoring e-mails. Even the Washington Post thought that was a lame attempt by the Dems to create a scandal. They gave the Democrats three Pinocchios.
