Texts Reveal What Democrats Say About Southerners Behind Closed Doors


There have been plenty of wonderful Easter eggs for conservatives inside the text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and his lover Lisa Page, a bureau lawyer. It’s like the gift that keeps on giving, if you believe conflict of interest to be a gift.

In the latest round of SMSes from America’s two favorite anti-Trump lovebirds, the FBI’s Heloise and Abelard discuss how the president wanted to “know everything we’re doing” in terms of providing talking points to the president, talk cryptically about “OUR TASK” and calling Southern voters who refused to vote for Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe’s wife — you know, the one who received almost $500,000 in campaign donations from Hillary Clinton surrogate Terry McAuliffe — “ignorant hillbillys.” (sic)

Hey, at least “hillbillys” know how to use autocorrect. And apparently, these liberals were so furious when they lost that they reflexively stereotyped everyone who wasn’t on their side as being hillbillies. Your Democrat Party, ladies and gentlemen!

According to Fox News, the texts are being released by the Senate Homeland Security Committee along with a report titled “The Clinton Email Scandal and the FBI’s Investigation of it.”

The most explosive text message of the bunch is a Sept. 2, 201,6 message about Comey’s briefing the president, apparently on the Hillary Clinton email situation. “potus wants to know everything we’re doing,” Page, an FBI lawyer, wrote to Strzok.

The text raises questions about how truthful Obama has been regarding his interaction with the FBI.

“I do not talk to the attorney general about pending investigations. I do not talk to FBI directors about pending investigations,” Obama told Fox News in April of 2016. “I guarantee that there is no political influence in any investigation conducted by the Justice Department, or the FBI, not just in this case, but in any case.”

There were also post-election texts from Strzok and Page which show the predictable breakdowns one might expect from individuals who were not  Trump fans, as well as a cryptic message to get all the conspiracy theorists going thrown in for good measure.

“OMG THIS IS F***ING TERRIFYING.” Strzok wrote on Election Day. “Omg, I am so depressed,” Page responded.

Do you think what Strzok and Page said was uncalled for?

And then there was the inevitable impeachment talk, brought up just five days after the election on Nov. 13: “I bought all the president’s men,” Page texted. “Figure I need to brush up on watergate.”

That’s jumping the gun a little isn’t it?

The Watergate breakin occurred during Richard Nixon’s re-election campaign, four years into his presidency. Page and other Trump opponents might want to give a politician a chance before they decide that he’s worth impeaching.

Also, if you’re going to study impeachment and you’re an FBI lawyer, old books about The Washington Post and old movies starring Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman probably shouldn’t be the legal sources you’re consulting.

This is also just slightly important because both Page and Strzok would later (briefly) have positions on Mueller’s special counsel investigation; the fact that at least one of the duo was talking impeachment, no matter how bleakly humorous the remark may have been intended, is an unpleasant omen when you consider the other issues surrounding impartiality that have proliferated in the damp petri dish of conflict of interest that is the Russia probe.

The day after that text, things got even weirder. “God, being here makes me angry,” Page wrote. “Lots of high fallutin’ national security talk. Meanwhile we have OUR task ahead of us.”

The capitalization of OUR hearkens back to the infamous “insurance policy” and “secret society” texts.

Is it simply reading into something or is there something there? Ordinarily, I’d think anyone who said such things ought to be fitted for a tinfoil hat at the InfoWars haberdashery. However, given what we know about not only Strzok and Page, but also McCabe, Comey and a bunch of other elements within the system, who would truly be surprised that those looking closely at the words “OUR task” didn’t think something ominous was up?

For all of the alarm those texts generated, there were other more subtle revelations, as the text about the losing campaign of McCabe’s wife, Jill, who sought a House of Delegates seat jn the Old Dominion in a 2015 race.

A day after the loss, Strzok texted Page: “Disappointing, but look at the district map. Loudon is being gentrified, but it’s still largely ignorant hillbillys. Good for her for running, but curious if she’s energized or never again.”

Well, at least now we know what the left thinks about the South behind closed doors.

I thought we’d seen the last of our friends Strzok and Page. As it turns out, I was completely wrong. The sad thing is, I’m not necessarily sure there are new depths they can plumb. However, given the pace of text releases from these two, I certainly expect them to keep on retroactively trying.
