This Russia stuff would be funny if it didn’t show the media & the Progressive/Socialist/Democratic party in bed together. President Trump wants to make America Great again & the Media. along with the Progressive/Socialist/Democratic party have but one mission. To stop President Trump. Lets look at that for a minute. President Trump wants to make America 1st..in everything America does & the Progressive/Socialist/Democratic party want to stop him from doing just that. Now who is America’s Biggest Enemy, the Russians or the Media & Progressive/Socialist/Democratic party. I’m a simple man, this is a simple question with a simple answer.

On Tuesday, June 13 I posted an item discussing my very deep concerns about the state of political dialog.  I pointed out the current NYC production of Caesar wherein Caesar is mockingly depicted as Trump…and then glorifies the murder of Trump/Caesar in a deluge of knives and blood.  It was, and is, my conviction that this was yet another example of the left’s conscious decision to stir bloodlust in today’s political dialog.  I closed the posting with one word –Worry!

Our Deer Ed noted in his rebuttal that “For the record, I think the current production is in poor taste, but that is art. Art’s purpose is to elicit emotion.”

On that point Deer Ed and I agree.  I believe that the purpose of the play is to elicit emotion.  Emotion is the most potent weapon in the political arsenal.  The left has been using social media to gin up emotion. They are not attempting to gin up patriotism, love of their fellow man, love of our brothers, no…the are ginning up the poisonous emotion of hate. That hate directed against conservatives and especially against Trump.  Anyone who follows social media is fully aware of the that.

Certainly the hate dialog it not restricted to the left…we see it from the right as well.  It is not new to this President, but the hate and rancor coming from the left is fevered beyond all we have ever seen.  Violence and blood lust have become the daily currency in the lefts political dialog.

Consider that an editor in the Huffinton Post writing about violence in political dialog recently wrote… “[those who object to violence] should not dismiss the potential validity or logic of violent resistance, it’s effectively an effort to dictate the rules under which oppressed peoples respond to existential threats, and to silence forms of resistance disagreeable to privileged sensibilities.”  Simple translation from HP jargon. Violence is OK, it all depends on which side is using it.

The New York Times editorially weighed in on the issue of hate speech just hours after the DC shooting.  They wrote:

“Conservatives and right-wing media were quick on Wednesday to demand forceful condemnation of hate speech and crimes by anti-Trump liberals”, “…they’re right. The evidence of the decay in our political dialog abounds.”

A comedienne, in a political set piece, hefts the severed head of President Trump.  Riots are becoming standard fare.  On Twitter, on 11/9/16 the “Twitterverse” erupted with calls for the assassination of Trump. Chris Mathews equates Trump and family to Sadam and family. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) said that “every racist in America voted for Donald Trump.”  Cher tweets on Trump “he really needs to get what’s coming to him.”  Various famous rappers call for murder of Trump. Some Hollywood “elites” have called for the overthrow of our government. The list could fill pages.

Should we be shocked that an avid devotee of Bernie Sanders, an ardent publisher of hate speech on social media,  set out to murder a gaggle of Republican elected officials?  No!  The only surprise is that it has taken this long.  I suspect that Wednesdays carnage is but the first page.

It has to stop. Stop hate. Learn to disagree. Learn to argue facts. Learn rationality.

We as nation are heading down a path that might well end our liberties.  A path that might well lead to the destruction of our Constitution.
