First things first. First of all, Rob Rousseau, the author of the above sentiment broadcast on Twitter, doesn’t have a daughter — or at least so he tells us in a follow-up tweet. He also claims he is not a liberal, which if true, makes him a troll, the one category of sentient being that is actually a step down from liberal.
One would be ill-advised to take anything Rousseau says at face value since his goal is obviously to get attention at any cost, which explains his inclusion of his phone number in his Twitter bio.
But this post isn’t really about him anyway. It’s about people who would write a message like this and really mean what they say:
I would rather my daughter dated a member of MS-13 than a member of the Republican Party

And such people do exist, some of them in comparatively high places in government. One of them is Democratic House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, who, like Rousseau, sounded off the day after Donald Trump called members of MS-13 “animals.” Pelosi had this to say:
Unbelievable… Pelosi straight up defending MS-13.

This is the same Nancy Pelosi who in January released a statement statement on the 45th anniversary of Roe v. Wade in which she said:
Forty-five years ago, the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade affirmed a bedrock principle: that reproductive rights must be protected; that the right to privacy must be preserved; and that a woman’s health decisions must be her own, in consultation with her family, her physician and her faith.
The highlighted phrases are both liberal doublespeak for abortion. Democrats prefer to avoid that term because on some level they understand how deeply inhumane the taking of a human life is, whatever the reason.
Not that the term reproductive rights is any better since those rights, according to the Left, belong only to the expectant mother. The fetus that she carries has no rights, even though, as Pelosi unwittingly acknowledges, the child is imbued with “the spark of divinity.”
