For John, BLUF: Representative Adam Schiff is draining the dignity away from Congress. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From Fox News, by Reporter Maxim Lott, 19 October 2018.
Here is the lede plus five:
On Thursday, Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff accused a GOP colleague of bigotry against Koreans -- tweeting that New Jersey Rep. Tom MacArthur “says his Korean American opponent is 'not one of us'... The dog whistles of bigotry have been put away. Now they’re using trumpets."If you hear "dog whistles", does that not suggest you are the dog? The people hearing the dog whistles appear to be Democrats.
"I didn't say that," MacArthur, who is in a tight race this November and also happens to have two adopted Korean children, responded on Twitter within hours.
The claim from Schiff, the top intelligence committee Democrat, is based on a TV ad from the Congressional Leadership Fund in which a female narrator says of MacArthur's Democratic opponent: "Andy Kim is a Pelosi liberal. He's not one of us."
The ad seems to criticize Kim as "not one of us" for being a "Pelosi liberal" and a "Washington insider" -- not for being of Korean descent.
The ad also was not authorized by MacArthur's campaign.
Oh, and has Rep Schiff apologized or deleted the tweet? Of course not. The ends justify the means—for Democratse.
