Democrat says lack of education funding made him strangle his girlfriend

No, it's not satire.

These days, when it comes to the Democrats, there are times when you are never completely sure if you’re reading news, an op-ed like this, or The Babylon Bee. This is one of those times.

A 19-year-old Democrat candidate for the Kansas state legislature, in a safe seat for the Democrats, has tried to strangle his one-time girlfriend. He also slapped her and had a charming proclivity for revenge porn. Such is a normal 19-year-old Democrat politician.

But Aaron Coleman, coward and scumbag that he is —as is any man who strikes a woman— does not want to take personal responsibility for his actions. Again, a normal Democrat. He (and here’s the Babylon Bee part) is blaming it on lack of funding for childhood education. Yup, Coleman is seriously pitching that more money for educrats would have somehow stopped him from drunkenly trying to choke his girlfriend.

“We must strive to create a society safe for women, which we currently do not do,” Coleman wrote in a statement. “I believe if we had more early childhood education funding, and taught what healthy interpersonal relationships look like, my ex and I would have been less toxic to each other.” Of course, “a society safe for women.” Though Coleman wouldn’t get to live in that society.

Coleman also thinks his own reprehensible behavior is proof of the need for “Medicaid for all.”

“[W]e must pass Medicaid for All so people can receive counseling and mental health support based on need for treatment and not ability to pay,” he said. Ergo, he hits women and thus America needs socialized medicine. I’m quite sure to Coleman and most Democrats that makes perfect sense.

Do you think President Biden should be impeached for the crisis in Afghanistan and loss of American lives?

Coleman’s ex-girlfriend Taylor Passow claimed that while they were dating he slapped her and tried to strangle her during an argument in December 2019, according to The Intercept. And remember, per the Democrats, all women must be believed. Oh, hold on… I forgot the codicil: Only when the accused is a Republican.

Coleman pathetically tries to get out of the charge while only digging his hole deeper. “While it is true I was abusive to my ex-girlfriend, I do not agree with the characterization being made about our experience in the hot tub the day after Christmas,” Coleman wrote on Sunday. “I did not choke her. I also don’t think she is intentionally lying, as I know large quantities of alcohol could be affecting both of our memories.” Sure, all men strangle women after they’ve had a couple. Yup, a normal occurrence. Or maybe only a normal occurrence if you belong to a party that makes a big noise about women’s rights but is funded by Hollywood types who treat women like disposable objects.

Coleman said last month he would leave the race after admitting to engaging in “revenge porn” when he was in middle school and to abusing others on social media. But he has since changed his mind. Strangling women and revenge porn: Just your average Democrat candidate for office.

Have a look/listen to Coleman’s front-yard political pitch:
