“It’s time to ask whether the attack on the United States Congress, yesterday, was foreseeable, predictable and, to some degree, self-inflicted. Too many leaders, and political commentators, who set an example for us to follow, have led us into an abyss of violent rhetoric which, it should be no surprise, has led to violence.” Scott Pelley of CBS Evening News
“There’s a whole country out there and a lot of people, at least in my Twitter timeline, and it’s a delicate thing, because everybody is wishing the congressman well and hoping that he recovers, but Steve Scalise has a history that we’ve all been forced to sort of ignore on race. He also co-sponsored a bill to amend the Constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman. He co-sponsored the House health care bill which would gut health care for millions of people including 3 million children and he co-sponsored a bill to repeal the ban on semiautomatic weapons. Because he is in jeopardy and everybody is pulling for him, are we required in a moral sense to put that aside in the moment?” Joy Ann Reid of MSNBC
Black Aziz Ansari@freeyourmindkid: “I hope that Steve Scalise’s dumbass gets better but again, WHEN WILL THESE PPL REALIZE THAT NOT EVERYBODY SHOULD OWN A GUN!”
Rich Barber @dickieStiles: “Dear Scalise. Glad you’re alive, but I really hope it hurts.
Above find a short compilation of comments from the Left regarding the attempted assassination of Congressman Steve Scalise (R-LA) last week by a crazed Bernie Sanders follower. I will not spend much time in boring you with quote after quote from the Left News Media or Leftist Political Pundits (like Nancy Pelosi) because we’re all becoming numb to them. However, I CANNOT grow numb to the insensitivity of those who take advantage of such a horror for political expediency.
It’s one thing to tackle a foe on the field of battle. It’s another to take cheap shots at an opponent who has been mortally wounded (by someone on YOUR team, by the way) and is unconscious in the hospital fighting for life when these egregious statements were made. Scott Pelley of CBS Evening News stating that the Scalise attack was self inflicted illustrates perfectly how elitist America has lost grip on the reality of simple life that 99% of Americans live in daily. But we shouldn’t be surprised. Pelley — until the day after his statement when he abruptly “left” the CBS Evening News — as well as Joy Ann Reid of MSNBC and House Minority Leader Pelosi all live in that LaLa Land in D.C. and NY City where 2017 reality has no home. Their addresses are all on the same street: Political Elitism Avenue. Reality means nothing to them and their peers. After all, their positions and affiliations give them the right to live above almost all Americans. And simply because of their job titles, their 7 figure salaries, and their circle of influence that result from their jobs, make them smarter, more in tune with reality, and more qualified to discern for all of us the truth of what living in America in 2017 is. We are to forget about making our shrinking salaries reconcile with our taxes, healthcare costs, rising energy and food prices, outlandish housing costs, stagnant investment growth (the little we have been able to put away), while their income, investment portfolios, and economic futures soar. Why? Because they “know” the right people and are therefore “in the know” about all things important to you and me. What we think is insignificant.
We are past the point where varied opinions are important. Yours is not important at all. Nor is mine. The only ones that matter are the connected ones. We are foolish to believe that we any longer have any say so in who is in the government, what the government does and does not do, and to believe that the government has any obligation to anyone other than their peers. And the elite in America have one job and one job only: to pay homage to those who have any shred of authority over them so as to get a foot in the race. They know that once you get in the race whether you actually win or not is unimportant. If you actually get in the race, you’ve won.
Donald Trump does not have a chance. It is foolish to believe that the elitist Left will allow him to win all that he promised to do with the continuation of those things he has already instigated. They have done, do now, and will continue to build the plan of destruction of the President and his agenda (for which he was elected). It matters not a bit to them that the democratic election process for which thousands died to establish and preserve through 250 years is the process that elected Donald Trump President. The Left will not rest until one of two things happens: they somehow create a scenario of some criminal action perpetrated by the President that would lead to criminal law infractions that would result in criminal charges; or until he gets so tired of the constant onslaught of allegations from unnamed and anonymous sources that their partners in the Media spend all day every day ramming down the throats of Americans overcome President Trump’s desire to continue fighting, and he simply quits.
If you think we are not close to either one or both of these scenarios, you are sadly mistaken. We are right there.
I suggest if you have one grain of understanding and concern of the content of this post you forward it to everyone of your friends. There is only one way to stop this Liberal ship from sailing: American voter intervention. And only if it happens LOUDLY. It will not happen LOUDLY unless/until WE make it LOUD.
If we do not take control, get ready to speak German, Italian, Greek, or French, or maybe even Mandarin.
