The hate has boiled over. Politically-fueled rage has become the newest craze. We all need to chill out. Maybe smoke a ‘lil weed. Have a beer. Get a massage. Anything to reduce this obsession many Americans have over our current political arrangement.
We have certainly been heading this way with the media spewing out its constant propaganda against the Trump administration, essentially accusing them of treason with zero evidence presented, signaling to all the crazy individuals out there that there is an illegitimate president in the White House.
The shooting of Congressional Republicans this week at a morning baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia is a natural outcome of the angry political environment at the moment where hysteria and hate trump facts and logic time and time again. And it’s not even election season yet!
James Hodgkinson, the 66-year old shooter, was responsible for this horrific act of violence that could have ended much worse had the Capitol Police not been there protecting Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise, who only had that protection because he is the House Majority Whip at the moment and down the line of succession for the presidency. Hodgkinson was a huge Bernie Sanders supporter and obviously suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. The deranged man posted a link on Change.org in late-March which read: “Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.” He also posted on Facebook recently that the president is “Truly the Biggest Ass Hole We Have Ever Had in the Oval Office.” I know plenty of these irrationally angry people in and around Seattle, Washington, where I currently call home.
The mentally ill individual was apparently a loner and it is he alone who is responsible at the end of the day. But before he it all began, he asked if the people practicing were Democrats or Republicans before opening fire on the conservative members of Congress.
As InfoWars’ Paul Joseph Watson said recently in a posted YouTube video, it was a “Terror attack carried out by an anti-Trump leftist radicalized by hysterical mainstream media propaganda.” Of course, the mainstream media melted down over him pointing out this obvious fact. The man was a Sanders supporter obsessed with Russian conspiracy theories and a huge fan of the Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC that constantly hints at the fact that Trump is illegitimate and likely committing treason.
As Watson also pointed out, this is not about gun control, this is about a dominant culture greasing the skids for leftist domestic terrorism becoming more acceptable in our society. The anti-Trump hysteria constantly emanating from our major media companies and our hard-to-take Hollywood elite is brainwashing our public and ultimately legitimizing violence against conservatives.
We cannot let this happen. We need to dial down the rhetoric. We need to deal in reality and not fantasy. You don’t like Trump. We get it. I’m sorry. Now get over it.
What did the media think was going to happen when they relentlessly signal to the many deranged people out there, many with guns, that Trump is committing treason and colluding with the Russians. Democrats need to address the hate that has bubbled over on their side of the political spectrum into real acts of violence perpetrated by people far too obsessive over what’s going on in Washington DC.
Peggy Noonan’s recent piece in The Wall Street Journal digs into the “great estrangement” we are currently witnessing across the wide swaths of America. The division is becoming palpable. The anger, tense, distracting, and frightening.
Noonan wrote quite rightly that “We look down on each other, fear each other, increasingly hate each other.” This cannot continue if we are going to have a fully functioning nation. We need to accept each other’s differences and work together to do what is best for America. Instead, we live in scary times as plays are being performed depicting the assassination of the current president and celebrities are holding up decapitated heads of that same president.
In another scary story, Indiana State Police are saying that shots were fired at a truck carrying a “Make America Great Again” flag and an American flag on I-465 this Tuesday. This, it turns out, is Trump’s America. Violence is okay as long as you’re upset enough.
The preeminent political sage, Michael Savage of “The Savage Nation,” has been predicting yesterday’s shooting for some time now. The anti-Trump resistance has been picking up steam and Savage said, “there are people out there who are marginal, who are going to go off like a rocket and kill somebody.”
The rocket has gone off. But luckily no one was killed.
While liberals continue to deride the current president claiming it is all his fault, the campaign is over. We need to get down to the business of running this country. In yet another distraction, the Mueller special counsel, now stacked with hardcore Democrats, is investigating Trump for obstruction of justice. Where the hell is the evidence of that? Why are you wasting America’s’ time with what the president has rightly called, “a witch hunt.”
The propaganda continues. The leftists in the media will continue to put out whatever stories they want to craft the narrative they require to oust the duly elected president.
The blood is on their hands.
