The domestic terror attack (notice you are not hearing the democrats/liberals/MSM calling it that) on the GOP baseball team in Washington a few days ago saw a very brief moment of unity on the floor of the House as republicans and democrats took to the microphones to announce this horrific crime would not tear us apart. Oh, and moments after the attack, before the yellow police investigation tape was finished being tied off around the practice field, the media insisted on announcing the democrats had piously (my word from my personal interpretation … Comey-like, dontcha know) taken a knee on their own practice field to say a prayer (it’s okay if/when they do it, you know). All lovely pontifications and flowery sentiments flowing from member after member from both sides of the political aisle. And yes, they played the traditional baseball game last night. But at some very intimidate point the Kumbaya unity facade dropped from the left and the MSM and, yes of course, the democrats…
Nancy Pelosi: ‘Outrageous’ for Republicans to blame Democrats for heated rhetoric
After Scalise shooting, Nancy Pelosi blames Fox News for violent threats against her
Day after shooting, Pelosi blasts ‘sanctimonious’ Republicans
AoSHQ: “Two-Faced Pelosi Holds Olive Branch in One Hand, Revolver in the Other”
Nancy Pelosi would like us all to forget Politics Of Personal Destruction was created by and practiced by the Clintons.
Given that the continuing examples of democrat-supporting leftists/liberals attacking conservatives is being revealed and added to, Nancy Pelosi must be realizing it can no longer be ignored and can/will not be good for them politically going forward, especially if such attacks continue and escalate in severity. Pelosi’s concern is that the GOP will dare use this in coming elections. Pelosi refuses to acknowledge her party always politicizes and uses such episodes for fundraising. For example, Bernie Sanders did such after the Gabby Giffords shooting in 2011. But according to Pelosi and her ilk the GOP had better not dare tie any of these violent political attacks to their party’s wagon.
On the heels of the NYTimes being called-out and thrashed for their libel against Sarah Palin in an Op-Ed after this recent near-deadly attack the MSM continues its own branch of deception and manipulation, for example…
CNN’s video of ‘the Democratic team’ gathering for a pre-game prayer is half-true, at least
The fact is, Republicans and Democrats kneeled and prayed on second base (Rep. Steve Scalise’s team position) before last night’s charity baseball game. But CNN did NOT want those viewing or reading their Twitter account to know that.
But as I was pointing out, democrat unity and restraint has a very ADHD-like endurance…
Congressional staffers boo Trump at unity baseball game
Dozens of congressional staffers erupted into boos, jeers and even vulgar gesticulations Thursday when President Trump appeared in a video at the Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park.
Mr. Trump delivered a message of unity, but some fans in the stands weren’t having any of it.
One man shouted an expletive at the video screen as Mr. Trump was telling the fans: “We are showing the world we will not be intimidated by threats.”
The episode marred what had been a night celebrating those wounded in Wednesday’s murderous attack on GOP players practicing for the game.
When both teams went to second base — the symbolic spot where Rep. Steve Scalise was wounded in the attack at the Alexandria practice field — to kneel and pray, some mocked the prayer, too. The fans appeared to be Democratic staffers, having booed the announcement of several members of the GOP lineup.
Were they admonished by the democrat members they work for? Doubtful. You see, the democrats/libs/left ALWAYS fallback on “The First Amendment” when such ugliness as that displayed last night by the staffers, and in a murderous play in the park, and a has-been comedian takes a photo holding the bloody severed head of the POTUS.
This country has managed to morph together 1984 and Animal Farm.
Are we as lowly as now being expressed on social media? Has the moral compass of this great nation not only been broken but crushed under the heel of those who would invite chaos and destruction of the foundation of our country that has been envied and feared for generations? Have we allowed our self to become weakened to the point of self-destruction … suicide? Do we understand that we are witnessing the ugly underbelly of what the last century’s social deconstruction on all levels has created? Most importantly are we redeemable … are we worthy of redemption? Do we realize only we can repair this, but only if we refuse the constant injections and addiction of allowing others to think for us by spinning some thing that even Orwell would’ve been horrified by…
The Scalise Shooting Is Teaching Us Things About Ourselves That We Ought Not To Like
Last night I made the mistake of perusing the Facebook page of Rep. Steve Scalise, and reading comments left under the medical updates following the Scalise shooting therein.
What I found, amid the majority of messages from well-wishers and prayers it should be said, was horrifying.
Many of these contain some pretty salty language…
There were others, lots of them. And again, they weren’t the majority of the comments left on Scalise’s update threads; the majority constituted a passionate outpouring of goodwill.
But as we’ve catalogued here at The Hayride, there have been far, far more outbursts of vitriol directed at a man fighting for his life in a hospital after being shot in an attempted political assassination than anyone could have imagined.
Why? Why are there so many people attempting to pour insult upon injury in this case?
As I was stumbling upon the attacks above, a famous quote by John Adams kept echoing in my mind…
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
Are we still a moral and religious people? I think most of us are. Clearly less of us fit that description than in the past. I would be willing to say the disgusting and vile utterings of the slobs captured above are an indication that foundation has cracks…
It is a very good read. Please read in full. I have noticed the unhinged ugliness on Twitter.
As to the tone and tenor of rhetoric in the nation, expectations for bringing it down to a civil level is one-sided, the left/dems being permitted to continue and make advances while shutting-up conservatives/republican speech. It’s how they roll…
