In just five more days, we’ll be “celebrating” an event the Left would prefer that you not remember:
On June 14, 2017, a gunman walked onto a baseball field at Eugene Simpson Park in Alexandria, Virginia, opening fire on politicians and wounding House GOP Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana and four others.
The representatives had been practicing for the annual Congressional Baseball Game for Charity. James Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old man, asked a passing congressman—South Carolina’s Jeff Duncan—whether Republicans or Democrats were on the field practicing. Once he received confirmation that the Republican representatives were the ones playing ball, Hodgkinson fired off 60 rounds into the unsuspecting elected officials.
It happened only five years ago. It almost cost Steve Scalise his life. But as it was a murderous assault aimed at Republicans, by a man who was a staunch Bernie Sanders supporter, hey, no big deal!
Time was, the Left’s attitude toward the Right was that we’re either stupid or evil. That attitude has been modified since I wrote those essays; today we in the Right are just evil. That’s the key to understanding political combat today. And what do you do with evil men? Why, you eliminate them, of course! Vaporize them for their blatant crimethink. It is a capital offense, you know.
That’s the attitude. The Left’s silent smirking over Nicholas Roske’s failed attempt to assassinate Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh nails it to the wall.
The attempt to assassinate Brett Kavanaugh’s character failed. He was confirmed onto the Supreme Court despite all the Left’s efforts. What was left except to kill him?
The Left regards anyone to the right of center politically as a blood enemy – literally. His blood is to be spilled in the cause of “democracy.” While the need is regrettable, some sacrifices must be made. You can’t make an omelet without breaking eggs, and all that.
We won’t be encouraged to remember Leftists’ violence against conservatives, but we’ll hear about the events of January 6, 2021 until the Sun goes nova, and in the most lurid, deceitful terms at that. I understand that the “hearings” will be televised tonight. One more reason to be glad I canceled my television subscription.
Just remember: You’re evil. You’re the reason the Left can’t make its glorious socialist conceptions work. Traducers like you insist on undermining it out of sheer malice. You must go…and the Left will see to it one way or another.
But do have a nice day.
and not one call for gun control.
Sounds like insurrection to me.
There is direct correlation between the 50/60/70’s and today. There was not the scale of violence, including all crime, among young men then as there is now.
For answers simply look at the frequency of all drug, including Pharma prescriptions, in use and smuggled into this country by open borders policy, and legalization by a good many states. It wasn’t until the late 60’s drug use seemingly increased and has only gotten worse since.
There is a direct relation to the increased use by a more permissive society (for fear of hurting someones feelings) of everything and a decrease in a higher moral, conduct, responsibility code of values, as was practiced pre 60’s.
Back when I was growing up, had I pulled the same stunts some pull now, I would have been bounced off the wall, and deservedly so as I was clearly out of line. Today that behavior is condoned, and even applauded.
Can you blame the kids though? They learn these behaviors by the permissiveness of their parents and peers. Time to start seeing how well kids, (and parents) bounce off walls again.
I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them to obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.
