No matter what the president does, it’s like he can never win. Even though it’s been the Democrats that have been the increasingly violent through out these times, the President has been blamed for these attacks. The Democrats are complete hypocrites, they don’t understand the reasons behind why these suspicious packages were sent in the first place. He has currently condemned those who sent suspicious packages to Democrat leaders and called for the parties to put their differences aside, but it hasn’t stopped the Democrats from condemning him still.
Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, in a joint statement, refused to set their political differences aside, regardless of the fact the President extended an Olive Branch.
“Time and time again, the President has condoned physical violence and divided Americans with his words and his actions…”, “…dictators around the world who murder their own citizens, and referring to the free press as the enemy of the people… “, “President Trump’s words ring hollow until he reverses his statements that condone acts of violence,” – Parts of The Joint Statement Issued by Chuck Schumer and Nanci Pelosi
Let me note, that all Presidents of the past have made their fair share of contributions when it comes to cozy-ing up to dictators that enforced an inhumane standard for its common citizens. This is common-place, it is a must when it comes to negotiations and every leader has their own way of forming relationships with these foreign adversaries. What we ask is, did we get anything out of it? Trump is one of the few who actually got something in return. (Which I will write on and link here in the near future).
It is exactly this type of denial, and their failure to acknowledge their own arrogance that has pushed someone over the edge. I don’t condone what this person did, however, they fail to acknowledge that they are the main factor behind the polarization in this country. It started the moment he got elected, they never had a problem with the electoral process until he won.
Maxine Waters, Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, and other well-known Democrats have invoked violence. Countless Democrat Hollywood stars have called for ‘resistance’ (a militia term) through violence, military coups to overthrow the government, and even the assassination of the President. Their failed acknowledgement in these activities is what is driving people from their party.
May I also point out, that in their refusal to put the past in the past, that they are the party that keeps the violence in the present. The president has acknowledged the violence, and even if he does NOT acknowledge everything in the past (which I understand why they don’t like real jokes they ARE the punchline), if he is making an “attempt” to wash away his supposed ‘sin’ (which I see none from my point of view to begin with) wouldn’t the opposing party with the alleged moral superiority attempt to meet in the middle? Yet, these politicians have made no attempt to acknowledge this “good act” and have instead, have insisted on pointing fingers. A sign that they have no intention to cooperate, even IF given the opportunity.
The more they try to place the division and violent behavior on the Republicans, the more they point fingers without acknowledging the part their own supporters and representatives are playing, the more their party will shrink.
