The Very Short Lived Time Out On Assholic Comments Following The Shooting Of Scalise And Others *Open Thread*

by

Thankfully, Rep. Steve Scalise is now improving after being shot last week by the Socialist Sanders-lover, James Hodgkinson, whom we now know had a list of GOP targets. Scalise is still in serious condition, though, following the shot that went through his hip and traveled across his pelvis, hitting organs on its way. It was a horrible assault, nothing short of an assassination attempt, against the House Whip. As a result of the shooting, for a second, many around the nation tried to play nice.

cbs-scalise-01-800x416That second has now passed. The assholic comments are flowing “fast and furious” (to borrow a term) now that people have had time to put their tin foil hats back on. And some of the comments are truly astonishing.

Scott Pelley from CBS News made some mighty assholic comments on Sunday, including the claim depicted above. Yep. It’s all the fault of Republicans that a Leftist decided to gun them down, dontcha know. Wow.

I was SHOCKED when an old friend shared a characterization of Scalise on Facebook that was taken from an abhorrent article from Fusion. IJR has how Fusion categorized the attack on Scalise:

Steve Scalise, the House Majority Whip who was shot by a gunman who attacked a congressional baseball practice on Wednesday, has kept company with racists. He was forced to apologize for speaking at an international conference of white supremacists, and reportedly referred to himself as “David Duke without the baggage.” Following Scalise’s shooting, Duke praised him for “defending white civil rights.”

Scalise has also been described as one of the most anti-LGBTQ politicians in Washington. He’s voted against LBGTQ rights over and over again. He also authored Louisiana’s ban on same-sex marriage. Like many of his ilk, he said he was only trying to protect “traditional” marriage.

So it is a point of especially delicious irony that Scalise, who survived the attack (and is reportedly in critical condition), may owe his life to a queer black woman.

What the hell? So, what, since Hodgkinson didn’t actually succeed in assassinating Scalise they thought they would assassinate his CHARACTER?? This was nothing more than a Leftist attack based not on fact but opinion. And, as IJR noted, they left out something important:

[…]

The article also fails to mention the mainstream liberal views of the shooter, James T. Hodgkinson. It fails to mention that he was a Bernie Sanders campaign volunteer who was a member of Facebook groups, such as “Terminate the Republican Party” and “The Road to Hell is paved with Republicans.” It failed to mention that the white liberal, Hodgkinson, shot two brave African Americans on Scalise’s detail. Or that “bigoted homophobe” Scalise placed black and lesbian cops on his detail in the first place. Wouldn’t that be out of character for a racist, homophobe?

The irony is utterly lost. (Click here to read the rest.)

Apparently the irony is lost on the writer at Fusion. And not for nothing, Scalise and his family apparently saw their police detail as family. Pretty racist and homophobic of them, isn’t it?

Howard Kurtz noted this morning on Fox that is absurd to even bring race and sexual “preference” (I prefer orientation, myself) into this whole thing. What the hell does that have to do with it? Good grief.

Oh, but wait – it gets worse than this Fusion (part of Univision) piece. The next source will likely not be a surprise to many of you, and that would be MSNBC. Specifically, a host at MSNBC named Joy Reid. From Daily Wire:

On Saturday, MSNBC host, Joy Reid, all but said the words: Rep. Steve Steve Scalise deserved to be shot.

“Rep. #Scalise was shot by a white man with a violent background, and saved by a black lesbian police officer, and yet…” she wrote in a tweet, posted with a list of Scalise’s record:

Joy Reid

Well, yeah, he has GOT to be evil just by virtue of being a Republican, am I right? I mean, really – he is the House GOP Whip and he voted for the GOP Health Bill?? How dare he! (Sarcasm there…)

Sadly, though, that is basically what this Harvard-educated woman was saying:

“[I]t’s a delicate thing because everybody is wishing the congressman well and hoping that he recovers, but Steve Scalise has a history that we’ve all been forced to sort of ignore on race,” Reid said. “He did come to leadership after some controversy over attending a white nationalist event, which he says he didn’t know what it was.

He also co-sponsored a bill to amend the Constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman. He voted for the House healthcare bill, which as you said would gut health care for millions of people, including three million children, and he co-sponsored a bill to repeal the ban on semi-automatic weapons.

Because he is in jeopardy and everybody is pulling for him, are we required in a moral sense to put that aside at the moment?” […] (Click here to read the rest.)

Good Lord have mercy on us. This is the kind of thinking that seems all too prevalent by all too many these days. This woman is spewing a bunch of talking points backed up by nothing but assumptions and innuendo, while essentially justifying the assassination attempt on Scalise’s life as a result of his POLITICS.

What is worse, though, is that she seems to thing there should be a delineation between one’s MORALS and one’s Politics. Well, that’s just the problem, isn’t it? Because Scalise apparently does NOT separate his Politics from his Morals. I don’t agree with where he comes down on some issues, but he does so as a result of his FAITH, his MORALS. I respect his right to believe as he does, whether or not I agree with where he stands politically.

Frankly, I don’t know how one separates out one’s morals from one’s Politics. I would THINK one’s beliefs, their morals, would INFORM their political position. Apparently, I am wrong on that, at least when it comes to some on the Left who begrudgingly take a time out on attacking someone because their politics are different, as the Daily Wire piece highlighted.

That’s the thing, though, about these assholic comments. The authors really don’t take a time out, as Reid proves (and a host of other who jumped on the “Scalise was saved by a black Queer” – seriously, you should see all the people who have parroted that line). They just do not seem to be able to help themselves.

Isn’t it ironic, as Alanis Morrisette would say, that they think THEY are the tolerant ones? Yeah. Right.

That’s it for me. What are your thoughts about this and the other issues of the day? This is an Open Thread.

    Excellent thread – I have no comment other than the hate is completely out of hand and probably will lead to more dastardly acts of stupidity.
    The democrats would have been better off running Biden than Clinton who would have had a better campaign team and cleaner reputation. I don’t know if Hillary is suffering from some debilitating disability or delusional mentality illness – her appearances and comments are demeaning to her and all of us who once supported her.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Thank you, piper – much appreciated.

      It is staggering to see the sheer lack of human decency these days. Just appalling…

      Yes, they likely would have been better running Uncle Joe. Heaven knows the media would have been all too happy to cover up all of his many, many foibles over the years to push him as the Candidate Of Choice. Everyone would just dismiss his affable missteps and ignore everything bad he has said or done as that just Joe being Joe.

      They made this bed. They can lie in it, but I resent them dragging the rest of us down with them…

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        That kumbaya moment is getting shorter and shorter isn’t it?

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          Sadly, yes. It lasted less than 24 hrs for Minority leader Pelosi, and unfortunately, for some on the Left, never started at all.

    • piper Says:

      That should be mental instead of mentality – another reason for some poor lefty to pick on me. Found an article this morning criticizing Trump and his administration on (drum roll please) spelling errors – such noteworthy news on how bad they are which should obviously leading to impeachment.

      Need more coffee and a spot of humor

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        Coffee and a spot of humor always a good idea IMO Piper.

        Great cartoon!

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        ROTFLMAO abt the cartoon – good one, Piper! And yes, more coffee!! 😀

        Isn’t it just astonishing the lengths to which people on the Left will go to try and target Trump? It truly is deranged, and I mean that in the clinical sense. They have truly lost their minds.

  2. kenoshamarge Says:

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Spot on!!

      Isn’t it remarkable how quick the Left is to jump on bandwagons like the van driver at the mosque, or the guy who killed the Muslim girl with a bat, yet they are a bit more reticent when it comes to a REPUBLICAN whose assassin had a KILL LIST??

      Oh, and they are apparently having a hard time now that it has come out the young man who killed the Muslim girl wasn’t some right wing whacko, but an ILLEGAL ALIEN: http://therightscoop.com/breaking-ice-indicates-murderer-of-muslim-teen-is-an-illegal-alien/

      I bet that is making their heads spin.

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        The problem is that once they get their narrative out, Muslim girl killed because of Islamophobia many will never listen to the truth.

        And the fact that is was an illegal and about “road rage” will not be widely known. Willful ignorance rides again.

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          You are EXACTLY right, Marge – that is what they do. They spew their ideological proclamation abt someone, almost always wrong, and that is ALL people remember.

  3. kenoshamarge Says:

    Great Post Rev.

    Hypocrites on the left, who complain about the right blaming the victim don’t seem to have problem with doing what they claim they are against.

    Hypocrisy and lies go together like ham and eggs. Or media and Democrats.

    Thus I am not surprised that a sub-human like Scott Pelley would blame Congressman Steve Scalise, for getting shot, while the congressman was still in critical condition no less.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Thank you so much, Marge!

      Love the analogies you used – you nailed it!

      And you are so right. The hypocrisy just doesn’t seem to affect them one bit. I don’t get that, but I guess you would have to be using some analytical skills to realize that was the case…

      Oh, what Pelley said was appalling. He is a disgrace to “News journalism” (such as it is these days)…

  4. kenoshamarge Says:

    The left, and all decent people should be outraged when some neanderthal blames a rape victim for being raped.

    Let there be no doubt, no matter how a victim dressed it was not her fault. The fault for a rape is the rapist.

    The left is very good at getting this message out. Especially if some fool on the right expresses what many privately think, that while the fault is always the rapist, some women expose themselves to danger needlessly. It was an opinion far more prevalent when I was young that it is now.Image result for woman in burka image

    Women who dress in burkas get raped. Rape isn’t about sex, it’s about control and hate.

    My own opinion is that a naked prostitute laying in the grass in Central Park has a right to say no. If someone doesn’t take “no” for an answer – that’s rape. Nothing gives anyone the right to invade another person’s body. NOTHING!

    So here I am, for once, in perfect agreement with the left on an issue and they show me, once again, that they are hypocrites and liars.

    They are against “blaming the victim” unless the victim is a Southern Republican Congressman who is fighting for his life after being shot by a lefty nutter.

  5. kenoshamarge Says:

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      And I want to be very clear about this, the activist leftist media is a co-conspirator in the violent rhetoric and the hate.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        Amen to that, Marge. This is an excellent question for half of our nation, the ones who refuse to accept defeat and move on. What, did they think they would ALWAYS get the Presidency? If so, again, we can thank our new Educational system for teaching them that they are always winners and get whatever they want (want to mark your gender as “x”? Sure, go ahead!). They cannot handle disappointment. They are a violent Peter Pan who can never grow up and is hellbent on taking down everyone else, too…

        • kenoshamarge Says:

          So many thought that after having a “historic” president, as in a “black” president they would then get the people to vote for another “historic first, a woman POTUS.

          Had their choice been someone other than Hillary they might have pulled it off against Trump.

          • piper Says:

            Now Marge, remember the playground rules – it was her turn and no pushing or shoving. Besides what democrat female could win after 8 years of an histrionic l ‘black’ president.

          • piper Says:

            I’m bad – blame it on our weather and not enough bike time.

          • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

            Sowell was so right. And as I have said before, to elect someone for something over which they had ZERO control or input is just idiotic.

            Sorry to hear the weather isn’t great for your bike riding, but I am sure enjoying your comments! 😀

    Biden Leads Pack of Potential 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidates

    Seventy-four percent of Democrats view Biden favorably, who would be 77 years old by the time of the Iowa caucuses, according to the survey.

    Biden last month criticized the Democratic Party’s 2016 presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, for not being the right choice.

    “I never thought she was the correct candidate. I thought I was the correct candidate,” Biden said during a speech in Las Vegas.

    Poll respondents found Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) to be the second most popular Democrat among possible 2020 candidates, with 51 percent having a favorable view of her.

    Democratic Sens. Al Franken (Minn.), Cory Booker (N.J.), and Tim Kaine (Va.) rounded out the top five with favorability ratings of 45 percent, 37 percent, and 37 percent, respectively.

    http://freebeacon.com/politics/biden-leads-pack-potential-2020-democratic-presidential-candidates/

    Biden followed by Fauxcahontas followed by Kaine, Franken and Booker? Good Grief!

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Are you KIDDING me with this?? Seriously?? Biden could not even win his STATE not that long ago. He really has said a HOST of idiotic things.

      And not for nothing but, he didn’t run this last time. He chose NOT to run because of his son’s passing, which I thought said something abt him. But now he is revising history. I got it. That does seem to be a Dem thing.

      WARREN? I caught a minute of her yelling with Bernie Sanders at her side abt the evil Reps and their healthcare bill. The thing Dems are playing off is acting like the horrible choices – or rather, NO choices in many states now – is the fault of Reps and not Obamacare. Obamacare is still the law of the land. It is ALL ont he Dems, and the Reps need to say that over and over again, like Rep. Ryan did in a speech today. The Dems owe every BIT of the horrible failure that is Obamacare.

      Too bad there aren’t more real journalists out there to highlight this reality.

      Anyway, what a freakin’ list. And it speaks VOLUMES abt the Dems.

    • piper Says:

      Franken – people have really lost their minds in thinking that this ‘clown’ could win the presidency.

    Just for fun here is a youtube sent to me by my 87 year old MIL. A lot of the things she sends me, via the old lady network, is something that’s new to her but not to the rest of us. But WTH, she’s only been using a computer for a couple of years.

    I liked this one. I don’t know if it’s new or not, it was amusing and entertaining. Now nasty, no expletives and no nudity – oh hell, it must be an old one.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Your MIL is something! And hey, this is plenty cool for anyone using the internets, young or old! 🙂

      Thanks, Marge!
