(Frontpage) -- While the left side of the political spectrum responded to the mass shooting in Las Vegas with fevered calls for gun controls, which even Democrats admit would not have prevented the massacre, they have done nothing to rein in their hateful rhetoric demonizing Trump supporters and providing clear incitements to deranged individuals like Stephen Paddock to commit heinous acts of violence. Leftist celebrity Nancy Sinatra notoriously tweeted “Murderous members of NRA should face firing squad” – to express her politically correct assumption that a gun, rather than an individual incited by hateful comments like hers, was responsible for the slaughter.
Nor are Democrats unaware that their reckless rhetorical attacks can have deadly results. Republican Congressman Steve Scalise nearly lost his life at the hands of a Bernie Sanders supporting Democrat, James T. Hodgkinson, during a baseball game this summer. Just last week a local prosecutor officially found that the shooter committed an “act of terrorism” that was “fueled by rage against Republican legislators.” Nonetheless Union County, New Jersey Democrat operative James Devine tweeted his support for the assailant. “We are in a war with selfish, foolish & narcissistic rich people. Why is it a shock when things turn violent?” he wrote, adding the hashtag “#HuntRepublicanCongressmen[.]”
This was at least honest. The moment Donald Trump was declared the victor in November, Democrat leaders launched a “Resistance” to his presidency. Not a democratic opposition to policies he might enact. But a resistance to his presidency. Consequently Trump was the first president since Abraham Lincoln to get no “presidential honeymoon.” Congressional Democrats even boycotted his inaugural, and instead of confirmation hearings they mounted a witch-hunt against his nominees, painting colleagues like Jeff Sessions as a “racist” even though they were well aware of his stellar record on civil rights.
