Below is a commentary written by Charles Hurt and published on April 4, 2022, in the Washington Times:
Coming up on Holy Week as we are, it might not be very Christian to compare President Biden to Judas Iscariot. But it certainly is worth noting that if Judas were alive today, he most definitely would be a Democrat.
And he would thrive under Mr. Biden’s Democrat Party.
This week’s gospel is from the book of St. John, in which Jesus dines at the home of Lazarus, whom he has just raised from the dead. Imagine that dinner conversation.
During dinner, Mary Magdalene takes a pound of costly perfume made of pure nard — which, apparently, is extremely expensive — and anoints Jesus’ feet. She then wipes his feet with her hair.
This enrages Judas with greed and fury.
“Why was this perfume not sold for three hundred denarii and the money given to the poor?” Judas demanded, sounding alarmingly like noted modern Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Maxine Waters.
John explains: “He said this not because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief; he kept the common purse and used to steal what was put into it.”
Right there, ladies and gentlemen, you have the entire governing philosophy of the modern Democrat Party in America today.
They don’t care about the poor or any of the marginalized and downtrodden they claim to represent. They just want to liquidate all of your earnings and take their cut before tossing any meager leftovers to the dirty poor.
At least Judas had the decency to just steal till from the charity plate. This Biden crowd steals the till, the plate itself and then sells access to the whole damned church to Ukrainian gas executives. And then the Bidens complain about it and bear false witness by blaming it all on the Russians.
Their latest Judas Iscariot scheme? The gasoline racket.
That’s right. President Biden and the Democrats launched a war on American energy independence in order to jack up gas prices higher than costly perfume made of pure nard.
It’s so bad that the Easter Bunny has to hitchhike this year. Children all across America — especially in poor neighborhoods — will be lucky if the Easter Bunny isn’t mugged or murdered on his way to hiding Easter eggs since Democrats also defunded the police in their neighborhoods.
Because, you know, they care about the poor. Just like Judas.
Most recently they came up with a twist on their scam. Every great scam has a good twist.
Gas cards. The idea is that since they hiked the price of gas so high (and again blamed the Russians) they will now take your money, put it on a gas card and then give it back to you.
Again, you know, because they love the poor.
Why, you ask, go to all that trouble? Why don’t we just keep our money and go buy our own gas cards?
Well, that’s not how Judas gets paid, now is it? He only gets paid if your earnings get liquidated and sent to the federal purse for Democrats to give back to you. After, of course, they have pocketed their cut.
Out in Los Angeles, however, the poor are wising up to all the Democrats’ Judas schemes.
Ms. Waters, California Democrat, has been in Washington helping the poor for over 30 years. She is one of the most powerful members of Congress as chair of the House Financial Services Committee. Every banker in America has kissed her ring.
Yet back home, her constituents are still homeless. Last week they gathered in search of “housing vouchers” Ms. Waters’ government had promised them.
The crowd swelled. They got impatient.
Another false promise. The crowd got rowdy. They were desperate.
“I want everybody to go home!” Ms. Waters shouted when her lie was revealed.
“We don’t got no home,” one of her homeless constituents reminded her. “That’s why we’re here. What home we gonna go to?”
“Nothing is going to happen here today,” said Ms. Waters, after 30 years of helping the poor in Washington. “Nothing is going to happen anymore today.”
One of her constituents complained, which sparked a Judas-like rage in Ms. Waters. “Excuse me!” she shouted. “There’s nobody in Washington who works for their people any f——— harder than I do! I don’t want to hear this! No, no, no!”
“That’s what I do every day,” Ms. Waters added triumphantly.
“What you do every day?” asked one of her desperate constituents. “I still live on the damn streets!”
Next time they should just vote for Judas Iscariot.
