Don’t Confuse Me With The Facts, My Mind is Made Up

In the wake of the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, former Vice President Biden delivers a speech in Burlington, Iowa, in which he calls out President Trump’s political rhetoric, which he says ’emboldens’ white supremacists. Photo credit: C-SPAN.

DELRAY BEACH, FL –  That seems to be the thinking of the 20 plus candidates for the Democrat nomination.  All decry the shootings in Texas and Ohio, but is the shootings of 53 and the killing of 7 in Chicago over a weekend any different from the shootings in El Paso and Dayton? Also, include the fact that Baltimore has reached 200 murders this year alone, thereby taking over the top spot of murders per 100,000 residents in the United States. Where’s the outrage with those damning statistics? Is it less of a crime that murders in those cities are less important than the shootings in Texas and Ohio?

Before all the bodies were recovered in El Paso and Dayton, the feckless Democrats (and their main stream media cohorts) were accusing President Trump of being part of these massacres. How ridiculous is that? Does politics trump (no pun intended) all sense of propriety? Who are those who pass judgment on others because of partisan considerations? Even after President Trump gave his heart felt condolences to the victims and their families, and his recommendations for possible future legislation, some of the Democrat candidates accused him of encouraging those demented individuals to commit those horrendous crimes. Some even used this tragedy to fund raise (the Democrat National Congressional Committee did this). Have they no conscience of what is right and wrong? Calling the president of the United States a racist, a bigot, a clone of Hitler etc. is beyond the pale, and these people want to be the next president? 

If you listened to the main stream media, mainly CNN, MSNBC, NPR etc., you’d think that President Trump was leading the charge of encouraging these shootings by giving aid and comfort to these mental-case killers (shooters). Can’t they let their hatred and animosity against President Trump be muted at a time of national mourning over the victims of these shootings?

Using the reasons they give for this inflammatory rhetoric, makes common sense appear non-existent. Was Bernie Sanders responsible for the shootings of the Republican baseball players by one of his ardent supporters? Also, what about the rhetoric of Representative Maxine Waters, who implored people to confront and harass Trump supporters, and for the other Democrats who have been calling our president a traitor, a racist, a bigot, a homophobe, among other epithets? Aren’t those incendiary words?  Why do these people get a pass while condemning President Trump? In addition, what about the words and deeds of the liberal and progressive Hollywood types such as Robert DiNero, Kathy Griffen, Tom Arnold, Rob Reiner, Alyssa Milano, Madonna etc., etc. Their words and deeds are even worse than what they accuse President Trump of saying and doing.  President Trump is a “politically incorrect” counter-puncher who fights back when his critics falsely accuse him of bad behavior or being unpatriotic. As the old saying goes, “people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones”.

Using President Trump as the “pinata” every time some nut-job commits a senseless massacre, is a disgrace, especially by the same phonies who preach tolerance, but are the one’s who are grossly intolerant. Shame on their duplicity.
