Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
It didn’t work for Kirsten Gillibrand, Irish Bob, and it won’t work for you. – El Paso native Robert Francis O’Rourke has over the last two days put on the most craven, disgusting display of raw political grasping I think I’ve ever seen.
Democrats always politicize tragedy – that’s just become a sad given in today’s American society. This has just been a fact of our lives since the Clinton Administration, and it’s what Rahm Emanuel was talking about when he famously declared that Democrats should “never let a good crisis go to waste.”
Irish Bob, who has been floundering around for months in a failed presidential campaign that can’t get above the 3% polling level, obviously decided within a few hours of Saturday’s atrocity in his home city that this was his chance to get himself back in the spotlight, perhaps his last chance. But, knowing that every one of his 6,000 or so rivals for the nomination would also be working their butts off to use the shootings to grab attention for themselves, Irish Bob obviously made the conscious decision to be as outrageous as humanly possible in order to stand out from the craven crowd.
How best to do that? Fall back on the two things in his entire life that he is apparently really good at: Cussing and outrageous lying. The lying, of course, is just standard issue part of any Democrat campaign, but the cussing he’s been doing – holy cow. And not just a few cusswords here and there, but loading up almost every statement with bunches of cusswords that my dear Mom used to wash my mouth out with soap for saying. Here are just a couple of quotes from the goofy opportunist over the last couple of days. First, the cussing.:
And here’s the bald-faced lying:
“He is saying that some people are inherently defective or dangerous – reminiscent of something you might hear in the Third Reich, not something that you expect in the United States of America – based on their religion, based on their sexual orientation, based on their immigration status, based on the countries that they come from. Calling those in Africa shithole nations and saying that he’d like to have more immigration from Nordic countries, the whitest place on planet Earth today. Again, let’s be very clear about what is causing this and who the president is.”
You may remember that, when she first began thinking about running for the presidency back in late 2017, Kirsten Gillibrand went on a cussing rampage because her advisors told her it would get her gobs of press attention. And it did get her attention. What it didn’t do was gain her any favor at all with voters, and there she sits all these months later, still mired at 0% in pretty much every poll.
It won’t work for Irish Bob, either, because everyone already knows what a craven doofus he is and it will be universally be seen as the sad political tactic from a failing candidate that it is.
The same goes for the lying. The only people who are going to believe all that stuff are Democrats who already believe all that stuff, despite the public record to the contrary.
The only people Donald Trump has called “defective or dangerous” are members of drug gangs like MS-13 and domestic terrorist groups like Antifa. The claim that the President has referred to all immigrants or all Hispanics or African Americans in negative terms is a bald-faced lie invented by Democrats like O’Rourke and their toadies in the fake news media. He has borne this out not just in words but in actions as well, as his administration has worked to significantly increase legal immigration while at the same time attempting to stop illegal immigrants from flooding the southern border.
Then there’s the outrageous lie that he has ever supported or praised real “white nationalists,” all of whom in this country would fit into a phone booth if phone booths still existed. He has in fact, on dozens of very public occasions, slammed and disavowed them, as he did yet again in yesterday’s speech.
Donald Trump is an equal-opportunity slammer who counter-punches against those who attack him first. He has spent immensely more time going after white people like Cryin’ Chuckie Schumer and Fauxcahontas and Jabba The Nadler and Pencil Neck Schiff than he has people of color.
Democrat liars and their media toadies want to classify his attacks on despicable hacks like Elijah Cummings – who has become fabulously wealthy while serving in congress on a maximum salary of $174,000 a year while the people in his district continue to suffer in the most squalid conditions in America – and loud-mouthed radicals like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of her anti-Semitic crew as “racism” because they know they must somehow distract the public away from learning the truth about those folks. Because the truth about them is so ugly that it would turn voters away from their Party, especially if the public should ever learn that they are now the rule among Democrats, not the exception.
Finally, President Trump has never “incited violence…in this country” as Irish Bob claims in that first quote. That is explicitly true about the two mass shootings over the weekend. As we have discovered over the last two days, the Dayton shooter was a registered Democrat who was a big fan of Elizabeth Warren. The El Paso shooter is also a self-professed Democrat whose “manifesto” lays out his support for all manner of radical leftwing causes, and explicitly states he is NOT a Trump fan.
But, never wanting to let a good crisis go to waste, every Democrat and hack fake reporter in the nation has jumped on the narrative that it’s all Trump’s fault. The only aspect of any of this that is – in Irish Bob’s words – reminiscent of something “you might hear in the Third Reich” is the Democrat/media effort to push the Big Lie.
No one has been more craven and opportunistic about doing that than El Paso’s own Irish Bob O’Rourke.
That is all.
