Speaking with Fox News on Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell laid down the law with a tough, forceful statement asserting that he will not permit the Democrats to turn America into a socialist country, making it doubly clear by gleefully reiterating that he is the “Grim Reaper.”

McConnell stated:

Whether it’s Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, the nominee for president on the Democratic side is going to be on a path to try to turn America into a socialist country. We’re not going to let that happen. Donald Trump is still in the White House, and as long as I am Majority Leader of the Senate I get to set the agenda. That’s why I call myself the Grim Reaper. We will not have the Green New Deal and we will not have Medicare-For-None as long as I am Majority Leader of the Senate.

In 2019, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated, “Leader McConnell, the Grim Reaper, is creating this graveyard.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi echoed, “Leader McConnell seems to take great pride in calling himself the Grim Reaper … it’s part of the pride he takes as leader of the Senate.”

McConnell replied, “She’s got it right. For the first time in my memory, I’m going to agree with Nancy Pelosi. I am indeed the grim reaper when it comes to the socialist agenda that they’ve been ginning up over in the House with overwhelming Democratic support and sending it over to America, things that would turn us into a country we’ve never been.”

McConnell did relish the nickname; he even sold T-shirts on his campaign website with the moniker. The T-shirts were emblazoned, “So think of me as the Grim Reaper, the guy who is going to make sure that socialism doesn’t land on the president’s desk.” The website stated, “Get Your Official Grim Reaper for $35 and join Team Mitch today!”

In April 2019, during his reelection campaign, McConnell told an audience in Kentucky, “Are we still gonna be a competitive place? Are we still gonna be the kind of place where you realize your ambitions and your energy but if you aren’t able to do that there are still ways to lead a rewarding life? Or are we going to turn this into a socialist country? Don’t assume it cannot happen. It’ll all be in the hands, I think, of the voters of this country next year. If you share my view, and I hope you do, that that’s not what we want America to be like in the future, let me tell you this: If I’m still the Majority Leader of the Senate, think of me as the Grim Reaper. None of that stuff is gonna pass. None of it.”

He continued, “So, we have a big job to do next year. Obviously if we get the House back that takes care of it; if the president gets reelected that takes care of it; but I guarantee you: if I’m the last man standing and I’m still the Majority Leader; it ain’t happening. I promise you it ain’t happening.”

    A title that Hillary will contest in court. Pending a lawsuit from death for her kicking him in the nuts and taking his cloak and scythe.

    Thank-you, Mitch! It’s great to see some people in our gov. are still in their right mind and want to keep our country intact the way our founding fathers intended it to be.

    I am a 76 year old career U.S. Government employee who was lucky enough to have an MOS that required frequent travel to foreign countries. If you want to understand what socialism truly is, ask someone who has been in a socialist country. Don’t bother because I have lived and worked in two socialist countries and I will tell you what it is like. Bottom line: You get up in the morning and want eggs, bacon and bread for breakfast. You will have to go to three different locations to get these . Two of them will be illegal because the government controls food distribution. This is to insure everyone gets a fair share (providing you are of the correct political party or actually work for the government).. All stores, bakeries and pork sales are government owned. The government forces you to go to government stores that (most likely) will not open until noon and have very little on their shelves. Eggs are different because everyone will have a few chickens in a cage in the back yards, this is to provide a little money to supplement their very low salaries if the government deems them deserving enough to work. But everything is so cheap, you say.. True, but nothing is cheap if you are earning $2. a day and a loaf of bread is 50 cents and pork is $1. a pound. That is socialism.
