Steve Scalise and the Media Double Standards

This motherf****r, like his whole job is like to get people, convince Republicans to f***g to kick people off f***g health care. I hate this motherf***er. I’m f***g glad he got shot!”  “I wish he was f***g dead.” These are the words of Nebraska Democratic Party Leader Phil Montag.  Many people have said things about others in private that they would never say in public. Often it is out of frustration, and not from any real malice toward others. In this case, the gentleman admits that he would never say such a thing in private, then he said; I wish he was f*****g dead. No mistaking his true feelings there, it was heartfelt. As usual those on the right pounced on his statements as another example of the hate that is an intrinsic feature of Democratic Party politics. This sentiment is true because this kind of behavior, public or not is par for the course in the Democratic Party. It is not a one off incident that could happen in any political organization. Quite on the contrary, the Democratic Party thrives on this behavior. Mr. Montag was rightly removed from his position, but that is not necessarily because of any deep conviction that his behavior was toxic, but because of the new media paradigm. They simply cannot just get away with it like they did before. Though the legacy media covers for them, makes excuses for them and refuses to give their sins the same extensive coverage, and condemnation that they give to politicians and activist on the right. Other media outlets like Breitbart News and Fox News ensure that the public gets the opportunity to hear the news, and respond how they see fit for themselves. In this instance, it simply was not going to be worth keeping Mr. Montag in his position. They had to fire him.

In another incident, Maine Democratic Party state lawmaker Scott Hamann said of President Trump: “Trump is a half term president, at most, especially if I ever get within 10 feet of that p—.” So the obvious question is what exactly would Mr. Hamann do to make the President a half term President? This was a veiled threat on the President’s life of course, and once again in the age of the new media, the word got out even though the rest of the main stream media did not make a big deal about it. He was condemned for his words and that was the end of it. Wohoo! Gone are the days when any criticism of the President was called a racist attack, no matter how innocent or innocuous the comment. The truth of these situations though is that though some of these incidents are indeed deserving of more attention, not everything that happens in the news would or could get the same high profile coverage. But people should ask themselves why is it that it is primarily when this type of incident happens on the right does it get the type of wall to wall coverage that we often see from the rest of the media. Is it just a coincidence that it is only conservative politicians who seem to get such unfavorable coverage for their indiscretions?

How is it that a congressman of the United States gets shot, then after the initial shock of what had taken place is processed, people just move on like it never even happened? The answer is twofold and simple. In the age of Trump the media cannot be caught up in the trivial matter of leftist violence committed against a Republican. The resistance must continue. After all, this was not some crazed right winger killing a beloved leftist/Democrat. Who cares? As Joy Reid of MSNBC asked “Because he is in jeopardy and everybody is pulling for him, are we required in a moral sense to put that aside at the moment?” Put aside what one may ask. Well you see, Congressman Scalise was not in favor of banning semiautomatic rifles, he voted to repeal Obamacare, and he supported a constitutional amendment to define marriage as the union between a man and a woman. There was also the obligatory smear that the Congressman is a racist. So you see ladies and gentlemen all of these things made Representative Scalise a terrible human being and deserving of the fate that he met at the hands of a leftist gunman. As the CBS anchor Scott Pelley said “It’s time to ask whether the attack on the United States Congress Wednesday was foreseeable, predictable and, to some degree, self-inflicted,”

To all the people on the left and/or who support the Democratic Party hate machine; hate Donald Trump how much you want, go ahead and despise the people who believe in smaller government, pull out your hair because conservatives believe in smaller taxes and stand for religious freedom. Continue to spew your vitriol because they do not support abortion, clutch your purses in horror because they support the idea that marriage is between a man and a woman, and while you are at it; go absolutely berserk because they think that the welfare state holds people back from realizing their full potential, and it should be reined in, they oppose the socialist agenda and support other traditional values. You are free to do all of these things, just know and understand that the above is just a very small sliver of the type of hatred that is harbored on the left and in the Democratic Party. We are not just talking about the random trolls that you could find anywhere. These are prominent people in your Party. This is your Party!
