After a pair of deadly ordeals rocked the nation over the weekend, the democratic candidates for president are doing their damndest to exploit these tragedies for political gain. This crude and undignified blame game has but one target; President Trump, of course.
The left is constantly looking for new ways to disparage the Commander in Chief, but attempting to paint him as the impetus of mass murder is pure partisan hackery. Not only that, but it also denigrates those who are suffering as a result of these attacks, but misappropriating their grief for selfish, personal, political gain.
What’s even more worrisome is that those who wish to be President come November 2020 are all traveling down this self-serving road together, wholly eschewing common decency in order to “get” Donald Trump.
“There is complicity in the president’s hatred that undermines the goodness and the decency of Americans regardless of what party,” New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker said. “To say nothing in a time of rising hatred, it’s not enough to say that ‘I’m not a hate monger myself.’ If you are not actively working against hate, calling it out, you are complicit in what is going on.”
South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg said confronting white nationalist terrorism would be embarrassing for a president who “helped stoke many of these feelings in this country to begin with.”
“At best, he’s condoning and encouraging white nationalism,” Buttigieg said.
Sen. Kamala Harris of California also found blame in Trump’s use of language, which she said has “incredible consequence.”
“We have a president of the United States who has chosen to use his words in a way that have been about selling hate and division among us,” she told reporters before attending services at a black church in Las Vegas.
The tirades continued…
Sen. Bernie Sanders opened a town hall meeting with a moment of silence and by calling for universal background checks for firearms purchases and more restrictions on assault weapons.
“Assault weapons are designed for one reason. They are military weapons. And I don’t have to explain that to the people in Las Vegas who experienced the worst gun tragedy in the history of this country,” Sanders said. He urged Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to call senators back to Washington, saying the Senate should “have a special session to address gun violence in America and let us finally have the courage to take on the NRA.”
He also called out the president.
“I say to President Trump, please stop the racist anti-immigrant rhetoric,” he said. “Stop the hatred in this country which is creating the kind of violence that we see.”
What the democrats are insinuating is that the world needn’t consider individual responsibility a factor in these incidents. Rather, that the government should expand its power in order to corral its citizens to “safety”.
Even the most elementary understanding of freedom should put that fallacy to rest, yet here we are, listening to Big Government democrats telling us that we are too inept to control our own lives and rights.
