That guy who drives the getaway car for a bank robber doesn’t physically rob the bank but he’s certainly an accomplice to the crime. James Hodgkinson, pulled the trigger and his accomplices are the mainstream media machine and Democrat leaders. The responsibility for the shooting lies directly at their feet. They are willing accomplices in the hateful rhetoric and false narratives that have incited rage. All of that materialized Wednesday on a baseball field in Alexandria, VA while members of Congress were practicing for a game to benefit charity. It’s a tradition that began in 1909.
They have contributed to what I call “cultural terrorism.” They continue to report on stories that are not based on facts but innuendo. They distort the truth to fit their agenda which is to create chaos, confusion, and anger. Their mission has been accomplished. They have become a propaganda machine of hate which they point towards anyone that disagrees with them. Our founders never imagined that giving “freedom” to the press would result in the climate that’s been created by them. We now need to be free of the press! They abused that freedom. They’re supposed to report the facts and allow the public to draw their own conclusions. They don’t even care about the truth anymore.
Their philosophy is eerily similar to that of Nazi Propagandist Joseph Goebbels, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” There really is no difference with that they have done. Since 10 pm on November 8th, they have questioned the legitimacy of President Trump’s election and openly plotted against him. Liberal professors have called for his assassination and called it free speech. One college professor even called for Republicans “to be lined up and shot” because he disagreed with the repeal of Obama Care. They supported Kathy Griffin with the image of the severed head of our President and allowed her to portray herself as a victim. They promoted and justified the Shakespeare in the Park Play in New York City which depicts the violent stabbing of Trump. It was “art” they said. It’s disgusting I say. There was no outrage.
Even the leaders of the Progressive Left like Tim Kaine who encouraged “fighting in the streets” to combat President Trump. Other “leaders” from that side have echoed those sentiments. Their silence to the violence has condoned it. It’s spoken volumes. We really shouldn’t be surprised, this is the result of 8+ years of rhetoric from former President Obama who divided the nation every chance he had. They have always adhered true to the policy of “never letting a good crisis go to waste” Within hours of the shooting, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe was in front of the camera blaming “gun show loopholes” and claiming that 93 million a day are victims to gun violence until he was ultimately corrected by a reporter. Their call to unite in the aftermath is meaningless. They are all hypocrites and Nancy Pelosi is a perfect example. She called for prayer and unity on the day of the shooting and now is blaming Fox News for the violence. Either the Botox has penetrated her brain or she’s just plain evil.
Further proof is that only 24 hours after the shooting, Democrat strategist James Devine said on Twitter, “We are in a war with selfish, narcissistic rich people. Why is it a shock when things turn violent? #HuntRepublicanCongressmen” He also stated on Facebook that he had little sympathy for Congressman Scalise, because he didn’t support gun control. His statements, provide a wonderful argument for birth control.
We now live in a country where speaking the truth is called “hate speech.” Now the media is doing their very best to deflect, distract and distort the truth. The truth is that they created this delusional narrative. They continue to promote and justify it. They own this. All of it. They are the antithesis of what America stands for because we stand for TRUTH. When people are in DENIAL, they find facts to be painful. The truth does at times hurt. Their temper tantrum over the 2016 election has gone on long enough. We should stop coddling them and allowing them safe spaces. It only validates their ridiculous and dangerous mentality. Living proof of their denial is that some of them are trying to connect President Trump with this senseless violence. That’s plain insanity.
Across social media hashtags like #HappyDeathDay are trending. Are you kidding me? That gunman was looking to kill Republicans and made sure he was on the right field before he opened fire. Our very way of life was attacked on Wednesday on something as innocent as a baseball field; a long-standing American tradition. It was a shot across the bow. Our American tradition demands that we stand against this fascist behavior. That’s who we are.
Yes, we must unite against it. But there is no common ground with those that continue this rhetoric. We can’t allow them to tear the fabric of our nation apart. All of them are complicit and have blood on their hands. What’s even more disturbing is that they don’t care.
