In response to yesterday’s shooting at a Republican baseball practice –
“How many innocent people have to die before we realize that words do matter? Crazy people act on the crazy things they hear from politicians and celebrities. Think before you utter those blind, hateful words next time, liberals. Because there are crazy people out there taking your metaphors literally.” – Eric Bolling
And this –
“You have normalized violence against us for the last two years. You have set buildings on fire to prevent us from speaking. You have called for our deaths, you have called it “a masterpiece” when our president is killed at Shakespeare in the Park, you laughed at his severed head in effigy as supposed comedy, and you have spoken quite freely about blowing up the Whitehouse. You have called honorable men like Jeff Sessions.”Russian operatives”, you have been complicit in correcting the record of phony narratives in the press. You have shamelessly wished death to the unborn grandson of our President. And NOW? You have sent hearts full of rage, rhetoric, and hate into the streets TO KILL our representatives.
“This is not some random tragedy without a clear motive. This is not some senseless act of violence to be fixed by stricter gun laws. Criminals don’t obey laws. No, the gun is not to blame for the shooting of “Republicans” and dozens of violent attacks against us, you are! The blood is on YOUR hands!” – Unknown
It used to be that political discourse and debates were as civilized as they were passionate. No more…
I seem to remember when politics changed as being when George Bush (43) was President, and people began hanging effigies and calling for his death or removal. Things really stepped up when Obummer was running for office with personal attacks and unfounded accusations of racism, corruption, and any other “ism” leveled upon the opposition.
Then there was the creation of radical, violent groups such as Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street, and all the other mobs that created mayhem, destruction, and even death because of some event (usually someone being killed in some criminal act). With the media portraying such acts as “civil disobedience” and “protests against a corrupt establishment”, the participants generally were not prosecuted, but hailed as heroes in the cause of social justice.
But I have to ask – Why must property of others (usually having nothing to do with the issue at hand) be damaged, livelihoods ruined, and people hurt to prove a point? What happened to civil discourse?
The last election was one of the nastiest that I have ever seen – and both sides participated in the offal-slinging. But it has continued past the election, instigated primarily by the sore loser WAH! Party (formerly known as the Democratic Party). And now this latest incident of not character assassination, but attempted assignation of members of the winning party.
And said members of the WAH! Party now stand before the media and their fellow representatives, wring their hands, and cry “this isn’t what we meant to do!” You damned hypocrites!! Look back at your calls of resistance at any cost, your supporters depiction of bloody attacks without condemnation, and what exactly did you fricken expect would happen?
To the members of the WAH! Party – be on notice that I will oppose your Liberal ideology (or idiotology) with every legal means at my disposal. I will oppose you at the ballot box, in posts, in letters & appearances to my representative, and donations to organizations that oppose your anti-Constitutional & destructive policies. You have been warned.
