The Absolutely Horrible Hypocrisy Of Betsy DeVos’s Resignation

Betsy DeVos resigned because of the rioting at the Capitol.

Just remember who her brother is – Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater.

Blackwater Logos

If you do not remember what Blackwater was (as it is defunct), you can see that it is still on the radar of many in the federal government. Just take a look at this –

“Mr. Prince, who founded Blackwater — since renamed Academi — in 1997, gained notoriety when security contractors employed by his company killed 17 Iraqi civilians during a 2007 assault in Baghdad. Four of his guards were later convicted in U.S. court of either murder or manslaughter charges as a result of that incident.

More recently, Mr. Prince has “sought to secretly rebuild his private CIA and special operations enterprise by setting up foreign shell companies and offering paramilitary services,” The Intercept reported”

President Trump recently issued pardons to members of Blackwater for their involvement in the killing of innocent Iraqis.

Did DeVos see anything wrong with that?

But she resigns now.

Absolutely horrible hypocrisy.

Good riddance.
