The real story of the scuffle between an aggressive, abrasive reporter and Montana’s new Representative, Greg Gianforte has yet to be told. The hypocritical attacks on Gianforte for supposedly body slamming reporter Jacobs does nit take into account the reporter’s actions. That side will come out, but ask yourself if there is a point where aggressive reporting becomes assault and receives its just response? Obviously, that reporter crossed a line.
As Written By Allen B. West:
If there’s one thing I despise about the progressive socialist left, it’s their duplicitous hypocrisy. Then again, if you comprehend the liberal progressive mind, trust me it’s not that hard, you realize their modus operandi.
The left never claims to possess any standards of decorum or decency, but they expect others to do so. And their objective is to force their political opposition into a failing situation where they are brow-beaten about certain actions, willfully knowing the liberal progressives will not uphold similar standards. A clear example is cupcake progressive socialist college students ranting about stopping fascism but not allowing the free speech of others…the mayor of Portland, Oregon is doing just that. From where does this mentality emanate? Simple, it comes from t
he left’s playbook, Rules for Radicals, and it is rule number 4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.”
The liberal progressive left lives by only one rule…”the ends justify the means”. Therefore, I found it rather perplexing the harassment and narrative being levied against one Greg Gianforte who just won a congressional special election in Montana. You’re probably familiar with the story.
As written in the Washington Post editorial pages, Along with an audio recording of the incident, the eyewitness accounts confirm that the now-congressman-elect engaged in brutish behavior. That he subsequently tried to blame Mr. Jacobs for the incident, in which the reporter was merely asking an honest question, makes Mr. Gianforte’s actions all the more inexcusable. Inexcusable means inexcusable.
The House, led by Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.), who said “there’s never a call for physical altercation,” should have made clear that Mr. Gianforte would not be welcome in the chamber. Instead, the speaker said , “If he wins, he has been chosen by the people of Montana.” Other Republicans were even more forgiving. “It’s not appropriate behavior,” Rep. Duncan D. Hunter (R-Calif.) reportedly told the Associated Press’s Mary Clare Jalonick. “Unless the reporter deserved it.”
According to Texas Tribune reporter Patrick Svitek, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) held up a bullet-riddled gun-range target sheet and said, “I’m gonna carry this around in case I see any reporters.”
If Mr. Gianforte is convicted of his pending assault charge, he should resign. If he declines to step away, the House of Representatives should expel him. Otherwise, a man convicted of assaulting a reporter and who subsequently lied about the incident, will serve in a body whose very existence proclaims that even the most contentious disputes can be managed through debate and peaceful disagreement. At the least, Mr. Gianforte should be persona non grata on Capitol Hill, frozen out of committee assignments, treated with disdain.”
Congressman-elect Gianforte will undergo a trial, and it ‘s not the job of the Jeff Bezos hit squad at the Washington Post to determine the fate of Rep. Gianforte. As for the Texas Tribune reporter Patrick Svitek, I’ve grown tired of the sensitivities of these leftists. As a matter of fact, it was Homeland Security Director, General Kelly, who was caught joking with President Trump after he received a commemorative sword upon delivering his commencement speech at the US Coast Guard Academy that he could use that for the media. Now, any chucklehead with a semblance of a brain knows this was all in jest. But, never leave it up to the liberal progressive left to blow an opportunity to display their inane and unrighteous indignation. No, one should ever take to violence towards the media, and certainly I’ve had ample reason, but that’s not my beef with this insidious editorial.
Where was the Washington Post editorial board when Americans were abandoned to die in Benghazi and four lost their lives? Where was the indignation from the Washington Post when it became clear that Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Susan Rice lied? When have we heard of the Washington Post, or any liberal progressive media outlet, treating those three with any disdain? Or how about Operation Fast and Furious –that illegal gun- running endeavor sponsored by the Obama administration and implemented by Attorney General Eric Holder? That episode resulted in the death of a U.S. Border Patrol Agent, Brian Terry. Did the Washington Post condemn Holder, demand his resignation, or advocate for Obama to dismiss him?
CNN contributor Kathy Griffin just took a picture with a mock beheaded President Trump. Will we hear anything from the Washington Post editorial board? Probably not.
So, I must ask these cackling crows, who gets to define what is “inexcusable?” I think it’s inexcusable that Barack Obama would commute the sentence of someone who had released over 700,000 classified documents resulting in the deaths of those assisting the United States in a combat zone. I think it’s inexcusable to release Islamic jihadists from GITMO just because you made a damn campaign promise. And I find it thoroughly inexcusable to release five senior Taliban leaders for a deserter and do everything to block said traitor being brought to trial.
To the Washington Post editorial board, I find it inexcusable to embrace Islamism and dismiss countless Islamic terrorists attacks against Americans as a need for more gun control…or refer to the Islamic jihadist attack at Ft. Hood as “workplace violence.”
Y’all are disgusting, despicable, and delusional and I for one am sick of you trying to designate from some high position what is acceptable and unacceptable behavior. You want Congressman-elect Gianforte shunned, expelled, or to resign? Then why did you NEVER call for such for Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and Susan Rice? You know why, because y’all have no character, no morals, no standards of decency, no rules or manners to guide you…save destroying your political opposition.
Gianforte apologized, and that reporter, Ben Jacobs, should apologize as well for his disruptive and disrespectful behavior that led to the consequence of his being body slammed. Then again, come to think of it, did the Washington Post ………
