It finally happened, a shooting took place where the perpetrator clearly indicated that he was shooting people because of their political affiliation. Are those of us on the right, targets now?
From foxnews.com: “A gunman believed to be a supporter of former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders sprayed a hail of bullets at a GOP baseball practice Wednesday morning, critically wounding House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, and injuring four others before U.S. Capitol Police took down the rifle-wielding assailant. Zach Barth, a congressional aide to Rep. Roger Williams and Matt Mika, director of governmental relations at Tyson Foods were also injured. Special Agents for the Capitol Police, David Bailey and Crystal Griner were also wounded.”
As I write this, most are aware that, while initially in stable condition, Congressman Scalise’s condition has been downgraded to critical, and Matt Mika is in critical condition.
It has also been determined that gunman, James T. Hodgkinson, from Illinois, was a volunteer for the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign, and a hater of Republicans, advocating that Republicans should be killed.
Other than Senator Bernie Sanders denouncing the shooting, congressional Democrats coming together to pray for the fallen, and some words on the House floor, very, very little, denouncing this shooting have come from those on the left, except for a few “weenie” responses from liberals indicating that the hate comes from both sides, as they scurry to find cover like cockroaches do when the lights are turned on.
Even before the likes of Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, and Rush Limbaugh started coining the phrases, “intolerant left, and indicating that liberals define racism to suit their needs of the moment, I was saying the same things. Democrats are the true racists, bigots, and haters. And I think I’ve been proven right.
If’s clear as a bell that the shooting of Congressman Scalise was politically motivated and the first of this type in thehistory of the United States.
The left, of course, is spinning this, indicating that the shootings are the fault of the GOP. Can you get any crazier?
On Hannity yesterday evening, Jeraldo Rivera, a well-known investigative Reporter was a guest. Jeraldo admitted that healing/unity or something to that effect had to occur in this nation that is divided by ideology unlike any other time in history.
Jeraldo further indicated that President Trump had the responsibility of uniting this country and praised the president for his comments following the shooting.
The President of the United States can’t possibly bring this country together. Why? Because he is hated by a majority of the left who still can’t seem to comprehend that that they lost the 2016 presidential election. About all the Democrats are capable of doing is whining and running off to their safe spaces.
The only thing that can possibly bring this country together is honorable liberals, if there is such a thing left anymore, and I have my doubts.
If there are any honorable liberals who exist, they must, if they want to save their political party, and restore it back to the days of John F. Kennedy, Scoop Jackson, Zell Miller,etc. those so-called honorable liberals must push back against the dark evil that has infiltrated the Democrat party. Those honorable liberals must denounce the hate, racism, and bigotry that has become a viable part of today’s Democrat party. They must denounce the name calling and violence that has also become a part of today’s Democrat party. These honorable Democrats must separate themselves from the status quo of what TODAY’S Democrat has become, an advocate of hate, racism, bigotry, and violence, with the intent of destroying property and injuring other Americans.
Furthermore, honorable Democrats must call out groups like Black Lives Matter, a group based on hate and lies, violence and destruction. They must also call out and distance themselves from the feminist groups who dress up in costumes depicting female genetalia, and yelling epithets and talking about and doing things that have no place in polite society discourse.
If there are any honorable Democrats left, and after a day like today, I have my doubts, this the only way we The American people will be able to return to what we once valued as a polite and civil society.
With the events that have occurred in the last 48 hours, I can’t predict what’s going to take place. Will we be able to pull together and go forward as a proud nation and proud people? Will those of us who are possibly targets now, continue to persevere? We will. Will I, having been raked over the coals by the left continue to seek the truth. I will.
