When it came to hearings on the tragedy in Bengazi, or the use of the IRS as a political weapon, the Democrats have been anything but cooperative.
But when it comes to a hearing for a robber, who assaulted a police officer, and those who rioted and burned businesses because of him, Democrat Senator, Dick Durbin, can’t wait to form a hearing to bring attention to them. A press release from his office states:

“On Tuesday, December 9th, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Human Rights, will hold a hearing entitled “The State of Civil and Human Rights in the United States.” The hearing will examine the status of key civil and human rights issues, including criminal justice reform, voting rights, and police-community relations.
Following enactment of legislation like the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010, bipartisan initiatives to protect civil and human rights have continued, including ongoing efforts to reform federal sentencing and restore federal voting rights for ex-offenders. Nonetheless, significant roadblocks remain. Racial disparities persist at many stages of the criminal justice system. Many states have enacted voting laws making it harder for minority and other voters to cast their ballots. And this year’s events in Ferguson, Missouri have highlighted the continued need to reevaluate and reform police practices, including the militarization of state and local law enforcement. This hearing will explore how Congress and the Executive Branch can build on recent successes and address ongoing civil and human rights challenges.”
It would seem that the political left are only interested in hearings that help spread, or distract from, their political ideology. Instead of the ones that expose their hypocrisy, and hold them accountable.
