This is the kind of hyperbole that most of America hates and that the media constantly allows the Democrat Party to get away with.
This past week California Democrat, Mark DeSaulnier (D-CA) told an 11-year old girl that President Donald Trump is more dangerous than a terrorist.
I kid you not.
During a town hall event at Stanley Middle School in Lafayette, California, the congressman began taking questions from the crowd when a staff member read the little girl’s question from a card. “My name is Eden, and I’m 11 years old,” the staff member read, “My mom is worried about my future with President Trump. On election night, my mom cried. Kids at my school are worrying about being deported. I’ve read and heard awful things about him. Should I be worried about my future? As a kid, what can I do about it?
Did DeSaulnier use the moment to opine that we’d become far too divided and that such fears are overblown, or that President Trump does not present any kind of radical departure from the norm in Washington, D.C.? Nope.
Instead, he fed into the irrational fear of those on the left and actually argued that President Trump presented a “more dangerous” problem for our nation than the radical Muslim terrorists who have killed hundreds of thousands of people.
DeSaulnier told the little girl that she should be very afraid for her future, “From the mouths of babes, I think you should be concerned. This is dangerous stuff. I’ve said a few times, the most dangerous person in America isn’t a terrorist, it’s the person who’s president of the United States. So Eden, you’ve got to read, you have to be thoughtful, and you have to be engaged.”
Disgustingly, the reporter who wrote the story up for the East Bay Times, actually argued that DeSaulnier gave a “heartfelt” and touching response!
This is the ridiculousness that we face on the Left, folks. They tell horror stories to their children and then act surprised when those same children act out in violence. (See the violent students at Berkeley for further evidence.)
Can you imagine how the media would have reacted had a Republican argued that President Obama was worse than the terrorists? I’m sure you can. The media took any implication of Obama being dangerous as a sign of insanity, or at best of Republican demagoguery. However, now that it’s Democrats uttering such foolishness… the media has responded in one of two ways; either as East Bay did by romantically agreeing, or by remaining silent altogether.
As always, the media’s bias against Republicans is astounding.
