Once again, President Donald Trump is accused of creating a climate of hate in which violence flourishes. (He’s so mean!) Here, hate is defined as mocking your opponents. (Mockery or sarcasm as a political weapon? Unheard of.)
He’s also indicted for telling it like it is, on issues ranging from border security to snow flakes. Harry Truman called this “plain speaking.”
In case you’re wondering, here’s how Democrats and their allies even further to the left are creating a climate of love.
Maxine Waters – Get in their faces. If you see them in a public place, harass them, force them to leave.
Eric Holder – “When they go low, we kick them.”
Hillary Rodham Clinton – The rules of civility are hereby suspended until we start winning.
Louis Farrakhan – Who recently compared Jews to “termites.” Don’t hold your breath waiting for a prominent Democrat to condemn the Calypso Kid. Bill Clinton sat close to him at Aretha Franklin’s funeral.
Al Sharpton – Who helped to create a race riot in Crown Heights in 1991 that led to the death of a rabbinical student, charged that young African-Americans who attended a White House conference were used as “props” and the president “should be ashamed of himself” for hosting the event.
Rev. Jeremiah (“God damn America”) Wright – Obama’s minister and spiritual guide for more than 20 years, said “Israel is an apartheid state” and “Jesus was a Palestinian.” Sunni or Shiite?
Madonna – Said she’s “thought about blowing up the White House.”
Also – Campus anti-speech mobs attacking conservative speakers, Antifa brownshirts who brutalize opponents while screaming about ”White Supremacy,” Black Lives Matter (whose activists have been known to chant, “What do we want? Dead cops!”), the Bernie Sanders volunteer who shot Rep. Steve Scalise, preachers of hate at U.S. mosques, rioters at the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, and the goons who chucked a boulder through the home office of Rep. Kevin McCarthy a week ago.
Democrats can stomp on the faces of their opponents and it’s okay — as long as it’s done in the name of tolerance, inclusiveness and LOVE.
