Our modern era of political discourse has taken several ugly turns in the recent months, and the exploitation of an American tragedy is merely the next step for the left.
In the age of President Trump, the liberal left of our great nation have radicalized. Now, instead of despicable democrats employing their mainstream media stranglehold in order to narrow the national narrative, we have groups such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter very literally causing chaos and violence at every possible turn. This is a new look for the previously meek millennials who have been indoctrinated by democratic operatives and progressive pundits alike.
Now, after the most brutal mass shooting in American history took place in Las Vegas, a number of leftist politicos have taken it upon themselves to commandeer this tragedy for their own political purpose in incredibly vulgar and deplorable ways.
The latest affront to ethical political behavior comes to us from Representative Seth Moulton of Massachusetts.
Of course, Moulton’s reasoning is clear: Without any movement on gun control, this elected official believes that there is no reason to honor those affected by this senseless, possibly politically motivated tragedy.
The shooter in the Las Vegas massacre, Stephen Paddock, had not publicly revealed any motive for his crime before he took his own life in his hotel room at Mandalay Bay resort and casino. Police and other authorities have been silent on that front as well, likely to avoid tainting their ongoing investigation.
Many have inferred that Paddock’s choice of target, a country music concert, may have been significant due to the demographics of the crowd; mainly, white conservatives whom the radical left has continually targeted in the wake of President Donald Trump’s election.
The vitriol of the left has been increasing in depravity over the course of the last 9 months as well, with a number of violent images making the rounds of the leftist political sphere. Starting with Snoop Dogg and Kathy Griffin’s mocked assassinations of the President, followed just weeks later by the heinous actions of James T. Hodgkinson, (a Bernie Sanders campaign volunteer), the neo-Fascist liberals have been clamoring for a New Civil War for months.
Should Paddock be found to have connections to any radical leftist organizations, such as Antifa, that will open up an entirely new chapter in American political history.
