Skip to comments.The Unbearable Smugness Of Being…A Democrat
Posted on 06/25/2017 4:56:26 AM PDT by Kaslin
It was a different time, a crazy time, all those days ago way back at the end of last week. I remember it like it was, well, just last week, when Democrats suggested that maybe, just maybe, the political rhetoric in the country was a little too heated after one of their own tried to murder as many Republican Congressmen as possible. Like I said, it was a different time.
After less than two weeks, that time is done and the political left is back at their lying, hateful rhetoric about how Republicans are hoping to kill as many Americans as possible. It actually took a little longer than I thought it would.
Putting aside the hypocrisy for a second, how dumb must Democrats think their base is to believe the other political partys election strategy is to hasten the deaths of millions of people? How idiotic is the idea that one partys plan to continue to win elections across the country is the screw as many people as possible out of something?
Moreover, Democrats are telling their zombie army that the GOPs secret plan is to take from the poor and give to the rich. Aside from the abject stupidity of it, what exactly would the rich take from the poor? How, exactly, does one get rich by taking things from the poor? Do they have secret stashes of money theyre unaware of and rich people are sneaking into subsidized housing at night to empty the area under their couch cushions?
Actually, there is a way to get incredibly rich off the poor its by claiming to be their champion. How many liberals have become fabulously wealthy by claiming to be working for the poor? They havent made a dent in the number of poor people -quite the contrary - but Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and countless other leftists have ensured their families wont miss a meal for generations thanks, in large part, to their championing of the poor.
Quite a racket, when you think about it. And much more effective than robbing houses with no money.
Now back to the hypocrisy.
Before the blood on the baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia, has even had a change to evaporate, Democrats were back to using rhetoric that could have come directly from James Hodgkinsons Facebook page. Actually, most of what Hodgkinson posted could have easily come from a Democrat Member of Congresss press conference or any show on MSNBC, so its kind of a chicken and egg situation.
Whatever came first, Democrats made clear this week their appeals to their fringe were not going to end simply because one of their own took what they were saying literally and attempted mass murder. After all, they must think, what are the odds of lightning striking twice?
Or maybe theyre hoping it will…
Elizabeth Warren said the Republican health care plan introduced in the Senate this week was paid for with blood money and people will die because of it. If someone truly believes a political party is going to cause the deaths of countless innocent people itd almost be irresponsible not to do whatever possible to stop them, including violence. Warren knows this, and the frequency with which she says similar things makes me think shes counting on it.
Youd think someone would say something to Warren, tell her to pump the brakes a little - at least until the shooting victims get out of the hospital. But one of the people in a position to slow down Fauxcahontas is right there with her.
Chuck Schumer, leader of the Democrats in the Senate, doesnt give a damn about anything but Democrats regaining power. In one of his speeches on the bill, Schumer took issue with the idea of slowing the rate of growth in Medicaid.
Remember the bill doesnt cut anything in the way a normal person thinks of a cut meaning spending less one year than you did the previous year. It spends more each year; just less than was previously projected. If you were expecting to win $100 at the casino and only won $50 you wouldnt complain about how your winnings were cut.
In his lament, Schumer said, Medicaid is increasingly a middle class program. Medicaid was designed as the federal health insurance plan for the poor, meaning those who cant afford to take care of themselves, not those who wont. Its welfare, and Democrats have spread the idea of this welfare to people who dont need it to get them hooked on the idea of government taking care of them so they dont have to.
Medicaid is failing and going broke. With more people on it and funding being finite, government controls costs by keeping what they pay doctors artificially low. More and more doctors each year are refusing to accept new Medicaid patients because, depending on the issue, they take a loss on them. Thats a direct result of this welfare program becoming increasingly a middle class program.
What that means is, under the banner of compassion (and in the name of winning votes for Democrats), Democrats are actually harming the people Medicaid was designed to help. Theyd rather ensnare a family of 4 making $80,000 per year in a welfare program than actually help the poor.
Its the tobacco industry model get them hooked on the product, worry about the consequences later.
Bernie Sanders is no better, tweeting Thousands of people will die if the Republican health care bill becomes law.
Not to be outdone, even irrelevant Democrats were compelled to toss their gasoline on the flames.
Hillary Clinton tweeted, Forget death panels. If Republicans pass this bill, theyre the party of death.
Barack Obama was more subtle, but his Facebook rant was no different.
Last week a liberal activist took what hed heard to heart and tried to save the country from the slaughter hed been assured Republicans were set to unleash on the country.
What Hodgkinson did is easy to dismiss as part of a mental illness, just as its easy to dismiss a suicide bomber as insane. But they arent insane theyre true believers. Theyve thought through their actions, aware of the consequences, and decided they had to act anyway. Theres too much thought in their actions to be chalked up to insanity.
And theres too much inspiration for the Hodgkinsons of the world to think hell be the last.
These smug progressive preachers of hate may have won elections, but they have not won absolution. For absolution you must express regret and cease the offending action. While some Democrats did feigned regret, though it didnt last a week, none are showing any signs of a desire to stop their inflammatory rhetoric theres too much money and power is scaring the hell out of people. So is the only conclusion we can logically draw that theyre hoping someone else finishes the job?
I dont relish that thought, but nothing else explains their words, their actions, and their lies.
Democrats = Danger
Demonrats are evil
democrats and liberals re: the shooting in Alexandria are like “moderate” muslims: They won’t do the shooting but they silently applaud those who do.
Hodgkinson is just the latest in the leftist hate and violence trend. They have lost in the marketplace of ideas and now just want to shoot up the market until theirs are the only ideas left.
The insanity party is in its death throws. Pelosi won’t leave, and the rest will dump the brand for something new in 2020.
Usually when Liberals are angry, the music gets better (1950s, 1960s, 1980s). When Liberals are not outraged, the music sucks (1970s, 1990s, 2000s, 2010s)
The Liberals hate Trump...but they can't produce good music. All we have nowadays is Rap, Hip Hop, and other assorted crap.
They are not even human
President Trump does not want her to leave. She’s just dumb, the others are more dangerous
You blame President Trump for the lousy music of today?
Yes. He must not be making the Liberals angry enough! He needs to try harder!
Tell me about it. Used to listen to Steely Dan, Hall and Oates, Doobies. My son and ALL his white soccer teammates listen to rap. I know every generation hated Elvis, the Beatles, KISS, but this has gone so low that it can’t get any worse other that listening to a compilation of prisoners being raped.
Indeed it’s why their party is going out of business.
I remember after the shooting, an MSM toadie, told viewers that the Dems were also practicing nearby and heard the gun shots. They immediately got together and “said a prayer”....
Sadly, my first thought was they were praying alright; praying that each gun shot killed a Republican.
Awful people and it wouldn’t surprise me if this were true....
Democrats all have a case of Hodgkinson’s Disease. They deserve everything they have coming to them.
The political con job....saying you're "for your fellow man" and conniving to make a buck on it.
The "federal inheritances" of these do-good political predators.....Barack Obama, Hillary and Bill Clinton.....is said to be in the billions.
