Other people saw this as a somber moment of mourning. Beto O’Rourke (Dem), remembered you should never let a tragedy go to waste. So he took his shot and managed to make a total ass of himself.
It was supposed to be a press conference where the Governor addressed the state, the community, and the families personally affected by the trauma of the 18yo who gunned down a classroom of innocents.
It was about the hard part of leadership. Sitting in a public setting and bringing the public up to speed on what we know about the tragedy. The video of Abbott (and others) sitting on a stage in an auditorium and doing exactly runs for more than an hour.
But, like any other second-rate attention whore, Beto had to make this day about himself. (In the interest of the victims, of course! This had nothing to do with his own ongoing gubernatorial election campaign, he just cares so very deeply.)
In the end, police escorted him away.
The Mayor of Uvalde did not mince words in saying exactly what he thought of O’Rourke and his stunt.

While some on the left loved it, not everyone did. Here are some other reactions to his shameless self-promotion.
Conservatives were outraged at Beto O’Rourke’s exhibition. Washington Times columnist Tim Young brutalized the politician, tweeting, “Beto O’Rourke always dances on the graves of shooting victims to advance his political career… today was his worst stunt yet. He’s trash.”
Conservative writer Carmine Sabia called it the “worst” political stunt he’s ever seen, tweeting, “Politics is my business. I have seen cheap political stunts before. But the political suicide Beto O’Rourke committed today is the worst I have ever seen. And if he thinks that is going to help him in Texas he is insane.”
Blaze TV host Sara Gonzales tweeted, “Beto O’Rourke- the same man who has his staffers and the Dallas Police Department assault constituents who want to ask him a question now wants to disrupt a news conference to use dead children as a political weapon.”
“What a disgusting piece of human garbage,” she added. —MSN
Beto was bad, sure. But he was not to be outdone by the old Divider-in-Chief himself:
Beto: How can I make a total ass of myself today trying to politicize a tragic event?
Obama: Hold my beer. https://t.co/XFCwFJyCgh

As one of our own put it so succinctly:
WTF IS THIS?!

We shouldn’t be shocked by any of this.
For those of us with any shred of moral decency, a crisis is a moment in which people are emotionally vulnerable.
For people whose secular moral framework has fully replaced the role of God with Government, this is nothing less than the natural endpoint of their political philosophy.
If all solutions are to be found in the government, no act is too shameful or debased so long as it puts the ‘right’ people and the ‘right’ ideas in power.
Thier model sucks.
This one is better.
Check out ClashRadio for more wit and wisdom from ClashDaily’s Big Dawg. While you’re at it, here’s his latest book:
Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
