Trump Blaming Hits Peak Insanity

Fellow Americans, this is not difficult. It really is not. But we have demoralized into a society that cannot respond with sympathy in the wake of two mass shootings that happened just hours apart during the past weekend.

The grossness and stupidity witnessed on the airwaves of the mainstream news media, in the pages of the “trusted” news sources, and out of the mouths of elected and want-to-be elected government officials was truly disheartening. (Watch the video below to get a slightly more lighthearted take on it).

The country faced tragedy after it learned that 22 people in El Paso, Texas and nine people in Dayton, Ohio were brutally murdered in two mass shootings. At FreedomProject Media we will not name the shooters, as cowardice and evil earns no glory. The focus is upon the days since the tragedy. A wise person once said the response in face of tragedy shows you the character of a person. This means that if our nation was a singular person, we would be morally bankrupt with a blackened soul, based on how we behaved and decried any sensible response.

President Trump responded appropriately after the shooting, multiple times denouncing the actions of the shooters and stating action will take place. “Hate has no place in our country, and we’re going to take care of it,” President Trump said on Sunday, Aug. 4.

He also made an official statement from the White House the next day reiterating the tragedies and the nation’s need to grieve.

“These barbaric slaughters are an assault upon our communities, an attack on our nation, and a crime against all of humanity,” he said .

President Trump’s responses were exactly what is expected from a president in time of tragedy, and his visits with the victims and their families later in the week was also rightly approached. But the media and politicians did their best to up the insanity of reasoning for how the president is to blame for what happened. They began with doing their usual outcries of the president being racist, xenophobic, and a white supremacist. Of the mob, Robert “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX), a candidate for the 2020 Democratic presidential election, let loose about his feelings toward Trump and the shootings.

“You know the s*** he’s been saying. He’s been calling Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals. Like members of the press, what the f***,” O’Rourke said to a reporter . “He’s not tolerating racism, he’s promoting racism. He’s not tolerating violence, he’s inciting racism.”

Commentary quickly ratcheted up to accusing President Trump of being happy about the shooting and that he actually wants to kill people, specifically that he wants to exterminate Latinos. USA Today opinion columnist Raul Reyes and MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace discussed how it is “open season on Latinos” because of President Trump.

“You now have a president, as you said, talking about exterminating Latinos,” said Wallace, who would later issue a non-apology apology for the comment.

Meanwhile, commentator Mika Brzezinski also laid claim that Trump wanted the shooting to happen.

“Isn’t it OK to deduce at this point, this is what he wants? He is inciting hatred, inciting violence, inciting racism, if he doesn’t unequivocally call it off and say this is wrong,” Brzezinski said on MSNBC.

It is not OK because President Trump did say that white supremacy was evil and hate has no part in this country. He stated several times that this country needs to come together to mourn and not be divisive. But that is not good enough to media pundits because President Trump can never, in their eyes, do anything humane and decent.

This is why the week continued to escalate to the level of crazy that President Trump is somehow invoking allegiance to Hitler because he ordered flags at half-mast until Aug. 8. And, if you, an average citizen, in any manner agrees with something President Trump says or does, you are somehow now responsible for the shootings. That is how far down we have fallen in the hate-filled hole the media and left has created.

“It’s not simply a matter of whether Trump’s rhetoric, or that of any other politician, led these shooters to do what they did. Maybe. It is also about recognizing that all of these people are on the same team and share the same mission and eat from the same philosophical trough,” wrote Charles Blow in an op-ed in the New York Times on Sunday, Aug. 4. “It’s just that their methods differ. The white supremacist terrorists and the white supremacist policymakers are bound at the hip.”

This is our current state of affairs. We cannot or will not live together without blaming Trump for everything, and now we must also blame those who approve of even one thing he has done as president. If we are a country that will remain a republic, we must address our problems with real conversations, presented with logic and moral judgment, because clearly the pandering and yelling have been done already.
