Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Gosh, wonder why we’ve never heard this on CNN?: Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, who was one of the Republicans who was almost murdered when a lunatic Bernie Sanders disciple shot up a congressional GOP softball practice in 2017, told an interviewer yesterday that the shooter was screaming “this is for healthcare!” as he tried to kill everyone. Strange how we’ve never seen that part of the story reported by any mainstream television network or in the pages of our nation’s newspapers. So odd. Must just be an oversight.
You’re gonna need some bigger boots, Eric. – Former fake attorney general Eric Holder, speaking to an audience of supporters of Democrat Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, jumped on the Democrat civil war-promoting wagon train yesterday. Taking issue with former first lady Michelle Obama’s famous admonition that “when they go low, we go high,” Holder advised his audience that they need to be meaner and tougher, saying “when they go low, we kick them.”
Holder went on to tell his whooping and hollering audience that “That’s what this new Democratic Party is about. We’re proud as hell to be Democrats. We’re going to fight for the ideals of the Democratic Party.”
So, to be clear, this “new Democrat Party” is about Antifa terrorists attacking senior citizens on the streets of Portland, wailing social justice warriors clawing at the doors of the Supreme Court building, hiring a lineup of women to participate in an organized smear of a judicial nominee, mobs assaulting Republicans in restaurants and other public places, and on and on. That’s the “new Democrat Party” Eric Holder is promoting.
Holder, of course, is just trying to keep pace with the Pantsuit Princess, who jumped onto the wagon train on Tuesday, and just joins a constantly-expanding list of Democrat “leaders” like Maxine Waters who are doing everything they can to foment public violence. None of these “leaders” talk about what they expect the ultimate outcome of their promotion of violence to be, but any thinking person can see that, once a major political party takes this genie out of the bottle, it becomes increasingly hard to put it back in.
So long as no Democrat officeholder in a prominent position is willing to forcefully and unambiguously condemn this promotion of violence, the violence is going to escalate. Don’t kid yourself – they are all fully aware of this fact. Ultimately, as Senator Paul said yesterday, someone is going to get killed by these people. When that happens, all bets are off.
Our other problem is that law enforcement in our major cities – almost all of which are not coincidentally run by Democrats – is not doing its job to contain things. Antifa mobs have basically been allowed to assault people with impunity as the police stand by and watch in places like Portland, Seattle, Berkeley and Washington, DC. Even the Capitol Police have become complicit. At last week’s occupation by a mob of protesters at the Hart Senate Office Building, a couple of them were filmed walking up to Amy Schumer and some famous sexpot model, asking them politely if they would like to be arrested for the cameras, and then gently making them go sit in a corner for an hour or so.
Folks, it is a violation of federal law for that mob to take over a government building like that. Everyone there should have been handcuffed, loaded into vans and taken to local jails to be booked. The way they were treated with kid gloves only serves to embolden the behavior.
I sarcastically commented that that made me long for the days of tear gas and rubber bullets. But if law enforcement doesn’t start treating this stuff more seriously, that’s where we are headed.
And here’s the thing that the Democrat “leaders” encouraging this stuff don’t seem to be considering: at the end of the day, if you antagonize us “normals” out here in flyover country too much, and start killing people, we’re by and large the ones with all the safes filled with guns and ammo.
The reality is that Antifa is mainly made up of a bunch of soft, white Millennial nerds from upper-middle class families who spend most of their time playing video games in the basement of their grandmother’s home, where they still live. When they finally start killing people, which is inevitable as long as the Soros money keeps pouring in and the Democrat Party keeps helping organize them, they are going to be pretty much defenseless against the harsh retribution that will come their way unless the police start doing their jobs.
Democrats like Holder and Clinton and Waters and Obama and Tom Perez and Keith Ellison and Cory Booker and the many, many others who are stoking these fires are playing at a very, very dangerous game. By urging already irrational people to commit increasingly violent and irrational acts, they are fanning the flames for an ultimate conflict that cannot and will not turn out well for their side.
This behavior is shameful and despicable, and it is why no decent person can even think about voting for any Democrat in this coming election.
That is all.
