Washington, DC — The impeachment hearings against President Trump is underway in what many believe is an unconstitutional overreach of the Senate, and specifically Democrats. The main charge against President Trump is that he incited riots at the Capitol through his words on January 6.
Multiple times it has been explained that those were simply figures of speech and many people use them. From football coaches to parents encouraging children, the words “fight like hell” have been used to inspire people for years.
The Democrats say that these words incite violence, but now they have a problem. Republicans have uncovered times where their self proclaimed leader, Joe Biden, has used those words himself. Not to mention the lead prosecutor in the impeachment trial as well.
Joe Biden was shared to have used the language “fight like hell” in a tweet by House Republicans. Biden was a candidate and shared that he would “fight like hell” if he were in office.

Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) used those words to describe what Democrats must do to combat the Republican moves to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. He said that those on the Left must “fight like hell.”
The GOP rush to replace Justice Ginsburg is all about destroying the Affordable Care Act, women’s health care and reproductive freedom, and the voting rights and civil rights of the people. We must fight like hell to stop this assault on health care and the Constitution. https://t.co/WBSRAG40wz

That’s not the only instance of Raskin sharing words about fighting. Multiple venues shared that Raskin had used those words on multiple occasions. When do we start his trial for inciting violence with his words?
The term “fight like hell” is far from inciting language, but merely a figure of speech. The Democrats are trying to make the impeachment about emotions, rather than about the facts. The facts are clear, President Trump did not incite the violence.
If we are going to use the same standard across the board, it’s time to start filing impeachment articles against Joe Biden and start working to remove Rep. Raskin. Cancel culture will never strike those on the Left who are working to push their radical agenda, however.
The riots at the Capitol are an unfortunate event that happened, but it’s far from the first time that it has happened. It’s time for Democrats to stop wasting time in the Senate and start actually doing something worthwhile for Americans. If they are even capable.
