For all their talk about “working together” the Liberal Left can’t seem to help but dish out low-blows when it comes to tragedies that affect the GOP and Republican base on the whole. Be it accusing the critically injured Rep. Scalise of being a homophobe, to the new hashtag about “hunting Republicans”… it’s all very disturbing.
As Written By Allen B. West:
I am sitting here on Cayman Brac in my room looking out over the Caribbean Sea. Unfortunately, due to a pretty major tropical storm there was no diving today, Sunday, with the Cayman Brac Reef Divers and the Dive Pirates. The most important thing was to get everyone here safely, especially those confined to wheelchairs, which due to the high winds and seas, would not have been safe for adaptive divers. So I sit listening to the winds and surf on a tranquil Fathers Day 2017.
Today I fly back from this little piece of paradise back into the maelstrom of the toxic political environment of America. Yes, back to dealing with policy, politics, and procedures, when we need true statesmen and leaders who can govern our Constitutional Republic. And even though I sit here bummed that I won’t get the chance to dive with US Army SSG Luke Murphy and his wife, a charming young couple from Florida, things could be so much worse. I continue to think about and pray for my former colleague, Rep. Steve Scalise, who was viciously shot last week while preparing for the annual Congressional baseball game. Again, my thoughts and prayers are lifted up for Steve to pull though and have a full recovery.
And so as I head back to Dallas, I’m reading about the responses from the left regarding this shooting. It’s as if some folks just don’t know when to shut up. There was commentary from some group called Fusion who referred to Rep. Scalise as a homophobe after his shooting. Then there’s the sporty chap, a Democrat strategist, who put out the hashtag campaig about hunting Republicans. And from Nebraska I found these very disturbing social media comments.
As reported by the Omaha World-Herald, “A Nebraska Democratic Party official has refused calls to resign her volunteer position after calling reactions to this week’s shooting of a high-ranking Republican member of Congress “so funny” on social media.
Chelsey Gentry-Tipton of Omaha said in statement that she will not resign as chairwoman of the party’s Black Caucus, saying her post was taken out of context by party officials.
The Nebraska party’s leadership asked Gentry-Tipton to step down Wednesday, several hours after she wrote, in a Facebook thread about the shooting at in Alexandria, Virginia, “Watching the congressman crying on live tv abt the trauma they experienced. Y is this so funny tho?” Later, in the same thread, she stated, “The very people that push pro NRA legislation in efforts to pad their pockets with complete disregard for human life. Yeah, having a hard time feeling bad for them.”
In this instance, I am reminded of the words of Solomon in Proverbs 17:28, (New American Standard Bible), “Even a fool, when he keeps silent is considered wise; When he closes his lips, he is considered prudent.”
The ol’ folks down South used to say it like this: “better for a fool to keep their mouth shut, rather than opening it and confirming the fact.”
Needless to say, that goes along with the use of social media as well, as evidenced by Ms. Gentry-Tipton of Omaha. Perhaps Warren Buffet can give her a call and persuade her to do the honorable thing: step aside.
Ya just gotta ask, is there functional brain activity going on here? Why would anyone make a comment about the potential mass shooting of members of Congress other than express their sorrow and condolence? Some folks need to heed the maxim of, “if you don’t have anything good to say, then don’t say anything.”
And for Ms. Gentry-Tipton to use this sad incident as a means to levy some sick politicized assault on the National Rifle Association is ignorant. Needless to say, apparently she doesn’t believe the Second Amendment is an individual right. And that Americans have an individual right to protect and defend themselves – after all, life is our first unalienable right. Perhaps she should realize before making her odious and insensitive remarks that these were unarmed vulnerable Members of Congress, who but for the saving grace of two Capitol Hill Police officers would have been mercilessly picked off.
We continue to witness the dehumanization of anyone opposing the progressive socialist agenda in order to make them targets of these types of individuals. To say, as Ms. Gentry-Tipton did, that Mr. Hodgkinson could have been someone that was going to be affected by the repeal and replace of Obamacare is an argument of folly. So, should those of us who’ve had our taxes raised — after all we need to just take from those considered “rich” defined by the left as those making at or above a $250,000 level — then go out and target those liberal progressives responsible for that happening?
Should those who’ve seen their health insurance premiums rise astronomically use violence against those who imposed such laws and edicts? No, of course not, that’s where the legislative process comes in and our right in a liberal democratic state to vote out those who propose those ideas that are against our best interests.
But it appears for the left, that’s not the viable course of action, theirs is a “by any means necessary” method of attaining political power. Their ideas fail but we, as free people, are not supposed to oppose them. We are subjects, not citizens, in their eyes. Therefore, when the American people use the democratic process of voting and let their voices be heard, the response of progressive……..
