I just watched three stories in a row (on Fox News) related to Democrats engaging in violence. The first story was just breaking about Virginia State Senator Creigh Deeds who had been stabbed by his son, and who then killed himself. The second was a story about a different “kind” of violence. In that instance MSNBC host Martin Bashir advocated violence against former Governor Sarah Palin, by suggesting that someone should defecate in her mouth, and oh, “Piss in her eyes”. The third was about the irascible Alec Baldwin (also of MSNBC … what a shocker) who had been suspended by same for his homophobic and violent outbursts of late.
What these events had in common was the fact that in all three, and in THE VAST MAJORITY OF VIOLENT OCCURRENCES around the nation, we see that Democrats are involved.
We don’t see Tea Party members, responsible gun-owners, Grandmas who believe in individual initiative and responsibility, or even angry middle-aged white guys like me.
We see Democrats.
And I say Democrats, because that is the philosophy that they’ve been marinated in their whole lives. One doesn’t have to be a registered Democrat to logically be associated (at least in their own minds) with Democratic Party ideals.
So, why IS it that people who identify themselves with the Democratic Party are so often involved in violent acts? Do they all need to attend anger management classes, as Mr. Baldwin has done in the past?
No, the problem is much deeper and sadder than that and goes back about 100 years or so. It’s just NOW becoming evident to the majority of Americans who reject violence (unless in the legitimate case of self defense, or the invasion of Poland) as a means of “advocacy,” because it can no longer be ignored by the Fake Media, e.g., NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, AP, etc., etc., etc.
With the rise of “progressivism” we’ve seen a constant and steady increase in the coarsening of American society. Why do I know the blame rests with “progressives,” and not with Conservatives? Because “progressives” control nearly ALL of the major institutions, such as media, education, advertising and entertainment in the nation (and in the West, generally) and are making HUGE inroads into institutions such as the military. This coarsening of society makes human life cheaper, and in some cases, expendable. After all, what is abortion, if not a coarsening of one’s attitude toward human life?
And WITH this increase in “progressivism”, the introduction of mass-shootings has ALSO been visited upon us. This explains why these shootings are recent phenomena and did NOT occur in the more Conservative 1930’s, 40’s, 50 and so on.
So, why DOES Martin Bashir feel justified in suggesting that Sarah Palin be forced to eat human feces? Does he feel that this is appropriate discourse? It was surely OK’d by management at MSNBC before he went to air with it, so he wasn’t alone in believing that it was somehow appropriate. This text was prepared and executed by so-called media professionals.
No, the blame lies squarely with a mindset that says “the ends justify the means”. Like, when a President looks you in the eyes (through a computer or TV screen) and lies to you about a promise that he and his people never had any intention of keeping, as with Obamacare.
If you begin by lying, and then lie some more in order to cover up the lies, then you never had respect for the people you are lying to in the first place. And if you have no respect for those people, and you view them as somehow unimportant and “in the way,” then you might feel justified in devaluing that person enough to simply eliminate them, as in war.
Indeed, the Democrat’s constant increase in the size and scope of government is another form of violence against individuals and their freedoms – since government IS force, and little else.
And that is what this is. War. The Democratic Party has declared war on America, by constantly attacking her core values, her traditions and her most important institutions.
And, like war, THAT is why violence is a Democratic Party kind of thing.
