Doug Collins Claims Democrats ‘Are in Love With Terrorists’ and ‘Mourn Soleimani’

Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) made a bold statement that is bound to draw a rebuke from some.

During a Fox Business Network “Lou Dobbs Tonight” interview on Wednesday evening, Collins claimed that Democrats are “in love with terrorists.”

His remarks come nearly a week after Qassem Soleimani, commander of Iran’s elite Quds Force, was killed in an overnight airstrike, authorized by President Donald Trump, last Thursday in Baghdad. Since, tensions between the two countries have escalated, though Trump said on Wednesday in his address to the nation that Iran “appears to be standing down.”

The overnight strike at the end of last week drew criticism from Democrats for the move, while some Republicans stood by the president’s side on it.

Collins, however, took aim at Democrats, as he claimed, “They are in love with terrorists.”

“We see that they mourn Soleimani more than they mourn our Gold Star families who are the ones who suffered under Soleimani,” he continued. “That’s a problem.”

Collins’ comments come in response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) stating that the House will be voting on a “War Powers Resolution” in hopes of limiting Trump’s military actions against Iran. The vote is expected to take place on Thursday.

“This is just another again blatant, hypocritical act by Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats because they don’t like the president,” Collins added.

See Collins’ comments below:

Collins isn’t the only Republican that has made the accusation against Democrats, as former ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley recently suggested, “The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are Democrat leadership and our Democrat presidential candidates.”

Haley then stood firm on her claim, as she doubled down in saying, “Mourning comes in different forms.”

“It doesn’t have to be literally crying over the casket like Ayatollah Khamenei,” she told The Dispatch Fact Check. “Leading Democrats are aggressively arguing that we would be better off if Qassem Suleimani was still alive today. That is effectively mourning his death.”

Their comments come after former Vice President Joe Biden said, “No American will mourn Qassem Soleimani’s passing.” Additionally, 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Deval Patrick said in response to last week’s airstrike, “[Soleimani] was responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent people, including Americans, and his death will not be mourned by me.”

  1. All the General knows is how to play with his Privates!

    McCain was the product of two prior generations of Naval commander’s in breeding!

    Your “hero” McCain graduated at the bottom of his class at Annapolis.He wasn’t fit to fly a broom, let alone a fighter jet. Daddy and Grampy McCain stepped in to get him into flight school. Fellow flight students resented having loser as him as a
    fellow student. He often slept in class because he was too hung over to stay awake. No worries. Daddy and Grampy would fix it for him.

    McCain’s irresponsible jacking around resulted in A fire on the USS Forrestall that killed 130 fellow crew members. His admiral daddy got him out of being court marshaled for it.

    Despite being warned by his commanders not to fly.too low he did anyway, getting him shot down by the VC.

    While doing time at the Hanoi Hilton his nickname was “Songbird” because he told VC commanders all they needed to know about his side’s battle plans. The story about him refusing to leave until all other servicemen were released is utter BS. As a ranking officer, the VC recognized value as a POW asset and they kept him as long as possible.

    He betrayed his country while in the service and as a Senator.

    The Generally Confused One loves him some traitors because he hates him some United States!

  2. “We see that they mourn Soleimani more than they mourn our Gold Star families”

    King Donald The Loser went after Senator McCain a war hero, approved of the Saudis killing a WP journalist, AND said nasty things about a Gold Star family, wrote love letters to Kim, decreases his assets so that he can steal from the American people, cheats at golf AND on all of his wives, and set up a fraudulent scam school, and a third of American voters STILL CHEAR HIM ON!

  3. Graham might be the worst sycophant of all, comparing Trump’s tired sounding speech (sounding out of breath and slurring words) with contradictions and very little substance to Reagan’s Berlin wall speech. Michael Steele had a classic Steele reaction to Graham.

  4. What a sick and deceptive message. Some in the Republican party are betraying their country and religion. Thank God we have more rational men like Mike Lee and Rand Paul who don’t always feel the need to fall in line with POTUS.

    1. Give Senators the ability to vote secretly for impeachment and we might find a few more who are just waiting to be “rational”.

  5. Ambassador Haley and Congressman Collins are 110% CORRECT. REAL news is reporting Commie Bernie and the fake squaw will be hosting a conference call with the National Islamic American Council to discuss the killing of Soleimani. This has the same stench as one of the Marxist Kenyan’s apology tours for American greatness; but now
    for Trump’s leadership in fighting terrorists where they hide in accordance with his authority under Article II of the US Constitution. Perhaps those anti-American, pro-terrorist “Americans” who do not wish to support and defend the Constitution of the United States should pack up and leave for a “nicer place” – like Venezuela, Cuba or North Korea. I’m sure Commie Bernie would fit right in in Russia.

    1. You must be one of the most ignorant posters on this site. You have fully bought into the propaganda.
