Skip to comments.The real villain in the Republican shooting? Hillary Clinton
Posted on 06/18/2017 2:31:46 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
IT started as a face-saving exercise by Hillary Clinton to try to explain away her election loss to a vulgarian real estate billionaire from Queens.
But the absurd Russia conspiracy has somehow snowballed into a crisis that threatens to bring down Donald Trump, has all but paralysed his administration, and unleashed the most unhinged attacks on a US president in living memory.
Inevitably, last week the violent language and Assassinate Trump memes erupted in a burst of deadly gunfire at an early morning baseball practice for Republican congressmen near Washington, DC.
The gunman was 66-year-old James Hodgkinson, a left-wing Bernie Sanders activist and campaign volunteer, whose social media postings show him to be a classic Trump hater.
He died in hospital after being shot by Capitol Hill officers guarding Majority Whip Steve Scalise. Without them it would have been a massacre.
Scalise remains in hospital, the bullet having smashed into his hip and travelled through his pelvis, damaging organs.
Fox News rightly called it a left-wing assassination attempt, the inevitable extension of the hyperbole and violent resistance that has engulfed the US since Trumps election, and which has been tacitly encouraged by Democrat grandees, by Clinton, by former President Obama, by Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, Senator Dianne Feinstein and Nancy Pelosi.
In demonising Trump to delegitimise his victory, they effectively sanction ever more violent rhetoric from celebrities which would have the average Muslim teenager locked up.
There was Madonna telling a womens rally shed thought a lot about blowing up the White House and comedian Kathy Griffin posing with a mocked up decapitated head of Trump dripping with blood, an image which we are told traumatised his young son.
There was the Snoop Dog music video in which he shoots a Trump lookalike in the head with a fake gun. Currently playing in New York is a Shakespeare in the Park performance which depicts Trump as Julius Caesar being brutally stabbed to death by women and minorities.
The left-wing Huffington Post ran a story last weekend which called for the execution of Trump because impeachment isnt enough.
So its no surprise that actual violence erupted.
As Newt Gingrich, the former Republican speaker of the House said: Youve had a series of things that send signals that its OK to hate Trump, its OK to think of Trump in violent terms, its OK to consider assassinating Trump.
Yet those afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome justify their resistance with the delusion that Trump is some sort of Manchurian candidate, a Russian agent selling out his country. Despite a distinct lack of evidence and clearly partisan leaks from intelligence sources linked to the Obama administration, the entire justice apparatus has been employed to investigate this preposterous Russia conspiracy.
The Justice Department has appointed a special counsel, there are FBI probes and congressional inquiries. It has led to the forced resignation of General Mike Flynn as Trumps national security adviser, the sacking of FBI director James Comey, allegations of Russia collusion against Attorney-General Jeff Sessions, and, finally, reports last week that Trump himself is under investigation for obstruction of justice.
Those pushing the conspiracy dont want Trump to be able to govern. They dont like the way the election turned out and they dont respect the people who voted for him.
Yet they never acknowledge that Trump and his team had legitimate reason to want to restore good relations with Vladimir Putin.
They forget how culpable the Obama administration was in the Syrian disaster, prevaricating, arming anti-government rebels which effectively meant assisting ISIS, and prolonging the civil war.
As Clintons leaked emails show, she pushed for regime change in Libya that turned out well and wanted to do the same in Syria.
It was only Russia, for its own reasons, stepping in to support the Assad regime in Syria, which stopped the rise of ISIS. Anyone who cares about the plight of Christians in the Middle East would know that the Assad government, repellent as it may be, is the only barrier to total Christian genocide.
What the left also wont tell you is that their rejection of Trump is driven by visceral loathing of the evangelical Christians who voted him into office, with their opposition to progressive shibboleths from identity politics and extreme feminism and abortion to same sex marriage.
Putin also is supported by socially conservative Christians in Russia and has been vilified worldwide since he introduced a gay propaganda law in 2013 which bans the promotion of homosexuality to minors and was labelled state-sponsored homophobia by LGBTQI activists.
The alignment of Putin and Trump, even if only to defeat a common Islamist enemy, stirs paranoid antipathy among progressives for reasons they have not spelled out.
Hillary Clinton was a terrible candidate: secretive, entitled, unpleasant, you name it. Her recklessness in using a private server for classified State Department documents and the sloppiness of her campaign which made her emails vulnerable to hacking, whether or not it was by Russia.
She couldnt articulate why she was running for President other than because she was a woman and it was her turn.
Her strategy was to dehumanise Trump and his voters as a basket of deplorables - racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, as she told an LGBTQI fundraiser in New York during the campaign.
Trumps unlikely victory was a repudiation of Clinton personally and more generally of the lefts entire bankrupt project of identity politics.
Thats why they will do anything to overturn the result.
This article is dead on.
But this sentence doesn’t go far enough: “Trumps unlikely victory was a repudiation of Clinton personally and more generally of the lefts entire bankrupt project of identity politics.”
Republican refuse to fight back. It is obvious by their silence at this point that they are co-conspirators with the dems and are just as dedicated to preserving the corrupt status quo as is the left.
Why hasn’t this appeared in an American newspaper?
Absolutely! Best analysis I’ve read so far.
Can’t disagree with any of this.
...meanwhile she’s under the protection of the media....all this BS is designed to keep her out of prison. The more chaos, the more it is likely she skips...
“It is obvious by their silence at this point that they (establishment Republicans) are co-conspirators with the dems and are just as dedicated to preserving the corrupt status quo as is the left.”
And rightfully so, Judge Jeanine called them out in a very big way last night. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3561887/posts
Add to it that Nehlen announced his official race against Paul Ryan on Friday. http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/06/16/paul-nehlen-launches-another-bid-against-anti-trump-speaker-paul-ryan/
We started one wave, now we need to make it a tsunami against the Deep State.
Every anti-establishment primary candidate needs to consult with David Brat who almost single handedly ousted Eric Can’tor while spending just over 100K while Can’tor spent more than that on just one steak dinner event.
Message, message, message and the willingness to walk the districts as Brat did.
I remember Miranda in an Australian publication. She is spot on.
Whereas the most depicted target is Donald Trump, the militant Left has made it clear that they’d just about target any of the people who put him in office by voting for him.
Recall the “punch a ‘nazi’” boasts of those who went to assault Trump supporters at rallies.
Antifa called President Bush a fascist, police in uniforms fascists, and FReepers fascists. Their use of the term “fascist” is merely cover for assaulting anyone they disagree with.
What made the DT change its tune? It had added to the loathsome attacks on the president for over a year now. I guess political assassination woke some folks up...sad, it has to come to that.
Should have known - it’s Australian, not British.
- Obama, Clinton, and their henchmen (in both the Deep State and the DNC) have committed so many crimes that when Trump was elected, they erupted in fear and rage of being exposed and prosecuted
- Said operatives are now engaged (along with a media that was caught red handed colluding with both the Obama and the Hillary campaigns) in a war of terror, propaganda, smears, murder, violence, and treason in order to take the spotlight of justice off of them, and destroy President Trump in the process
Ryan is close to the top.
He SET UP Trump when he said he would campaign with him that weekend during the elections.
HE KNEW about the recording of Trump on the bus and KNEW he would NEVER actually have to campaign with Trump that weekend, as the tape was released RIGHT BEFORE.
Then he smashed Trump as hard as he could but when he sadly realized that no one gave a #### about the video, he jumped back on the Trump wagon.
That sleazy ####.
Good recounting of Ryan’s perfidy.
15 minutes after the recording became public, he was on TV saying Trump should step down as the candidate—this, three weeks before the election!
I didn’t remember that he asked for him to step down!
That leprechaun ####.
noun, plural perfidies.
deliberate breach of faith or trust; faithlessness; treachery
Learned a new word today to boot! :)
Mcaullife runs to the microphone to spew about gun control. These idiots cant control the crap that come out of thier mouths
And the GOP remains asleep or actively facilitating the various attacks (Paul Ryan, this means you). This is a coup attempt and we all collectively may have to decide what to do if the will of the people is overturned.
