Despicable Democratic Grandstanding Occurs During Texas Moment of Silence

It has become readily apparent that the democrats are no longer interested in finding solutions to our nation’s problems, rather, they would prefer garnering selfish attention.

There has been an inundation of evidence for this over the course of the last year – an uptick that certainly corresponds with the election of Donald Trump as President.  This decision by the American people has sent the democrats into a despondent, downward spiral of self-harm and wild overreactions on par with a spoiled child at a birthday party.  They pout, they whine, and they throw temper tantrums at the drop of the political hat.

Now their antics are becoming downright disrespectful and unacceptable, however, as the left continues to hijack tragedy in order to make headlines for themselves.  The latest mass shooting in Texas is yet another perfect example of the attention-mongering hi jinx of these deplorable democrats.

“Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) walked out on a moment of silence in Congress Monday for the victims of Sunday’s mass shooting at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

“Lieu, a second-term congressman from one of the wealthiest districts in the nation, filmed himself after he walked out of the House of Representatives chamber and broadcast to his followers on Facebook Live:

“‘Good evening. I’m Congressman Ted Lieu. I’m heartbroken about the children and adults that were killed in the worst mass shooting in Texas history this Sunday.

“‘My colleagues right now are doing a moment of silence in the House of Representatives chambers. I respect their right to do that, and I myself have participated in many of them.

“‘But I can’t do this again. I’ve been to too many moments of silences [sic]. In just my short career in Congress, three of the worst mass shootings in U.S. history have occurred. I will not be silent.

“‘What we need, is we need action. We need to pass gun safety legislation now. Behind me is the House of Representatives chambers. I urge us to pass reasonable gun safety legislation, including a universal background check law, supported by 80% of Americans, a ban on assault rifles, and a ban on bump stocks.

“‘We need to do that. We cannot be silent. We need to act now. Now I gotta go back to vote. Thanks for watching.'”

Lieu is, of course, reaching to create the arguments of his party here.  Not only was the shooter subjected to a background check and didn’t use a “bump stock”, but the madman was only stopped when we was due to a “good guy with a gun” on site.

The civilian who took aim and injured the mass murderer may have been dissuaded from purchasing that weapon, if the democrats had their way, leaving this vile, criminal shooter to conduct his deadly operations unmolested until police arrived – a hypothetical situation that would have created a far greater number of casualties.
