Earlier today we highlighted Sen. Zach Wahls and his frequent vows to “fight” in his political speech. We also noted Democrat efforts to impeach President Donald J. Trump for using the word “fight” in his political speeches as cause for inciting the so-called “insurrection” that took place on Jan. 6.

But Wahls is not alone.

Iowa House Democrat Leader Rep. Todd Prichard has been “fighting” politically since at least 2015. Prichard even throws in an exclamation mark at the end of the tweet.

“Iowa House decides to short change schools again: 1.25% allowable growth passes on party-line vote instead of 4%. The fight is not over!”

According to the liberal news website Iowa Starting Line, Prichard promised “a fight” to win back blue-collar voters in 2017.

In May of 2017 Prichard declared the “fight” isn’t over against Republicans Rod Blum, David Young and Steve King.

A month later he was going on TV to talk about his intentions to “fight” for forgotten Iowans.

It was, of course, part of his promise he made campaigning for governor. In his official tweet announcing his run for governor, he said the reason he was running was to “fight” for every Iowan. And then he asked others if they were in!

And two years ago Prichard said all of the Iowa House Democrats would “fight” for the rights of workers.

Again, do Democrats really believe that using the phrase “fight” in political speech led to the events in Washington D.C. on Jan. 6?

Because if they do, then don’t they also have to acknowledge how dangerous the word “fight” is in political speech from Democrats?
