If you haven’t heard by now that Rep. Scalise and other republicans were shot today by a gunman who reportedly fired anywhere from 30 to 60 rounds ( depending on the report), you need to get out from under your rock. Thankfully, Capitol Police were able to neutralize the shooter before an absolute slaughter took place. And as I write this, it’s reported that the shooter is now taking his eternal dirt nap. But that’s not why I’m writing this. Initially, few in the media speculated on the shooter or his motive. But the Washington Post found a Face Book page that apparently identifies the shooter as an angry white democrat who posted on his page –among other things — that “Trump is a traitor. Trump has destroyed our democracy. It’s time to destroy Trump and co.” I will venture that within three days, the media will remove any political narrative when talking about the shooter, and use the narrative that he was mentally deranged. In one regard, I’d have to say they’re right. To borrow a phrase from Michael Savage, “liberalism is a mental disorder”. This incident is in stark contrast of other shootings in the past, such as the Gabby Gifford incident. In those cases, the shooter was immediately ( and wrongly ) identified by the media as an angry white tea partier. Rush Limbaugh was often blamed for the shootings because of his “incendiary rhetoric”. Sarah Palin was specifically blamed for the Gifford shooting because she used targets on a map to identify political races in which democrats needed to be defeated. During those times, the left was blatantly and purposefully dividing the nation along political, economic, racial, and social lines. In short, they were stirring the pot, trying to fuel a civil war of some sort, hoping to trigger the “right” into finally taking up arms. “A house divided can not stand”. They were hoping to cause a social collapse, blame it on the conservative right, and have their socialist / Marxist government that’s been waiting in the wings to finally take full control of our nation, and ultimately remove any semblance of our Republic. I thank our God above that cooler heads prevailed, and that the “right” used our established democratic political system to change power in Washington. ( This is not to insinuate that republican leadership share our constitutional conservative values. It’s just a statement highlighting that the conservative base will use the process to affect change.) Since Hillary lost her chance to be crowned queen, the democrats have been in an absolute tizzy. They have ramped up their attacks on conservatism, are making outlandish accusations against Trump, and are making ridiculous calls...
