On Thursday, Esquire politics editor Jack Holmes wrote a piece referring to “wild and dangerous forces surging throughout the country.” The article was written in response to a billboard posted by the Cherokee Gun Store in Western North Carolina. Vox has referred to the billboard as inciting violence against the “squad.”
As can be seen in the video above, the billboard shows an image of the “squad” and refers to them as idiots. In comments to the Asheville Citizen-Times, the store owner said he does not believe he is inciting violence against the squad, simply making a statement. The problem is he opposes Democrats, so this is obviously racist right?
Now, the way I read the billboard the store owner is simply referring to these pathetic congressional representatives as idiots. Where was the outcry when Julian Castro, Rashida Tlaib, Kamala Harris, Ayanna Pressley, Jay Inslee, Cory Booker and others used derogatory terms towards President Trump? Of course there was none because they’re all Democrats.
Being a Republican, Libertarian, conservative, moderate or any other name you choose that opposes Democrats and their people or positions automatically qualifies you to be a racist and a bigot. Democrats continue to double down on these representatives being their leaders, even though these Reps are disliked all across the country.
So Tlaib and the crew want to call out that this is inciting violence. They have called the shop owner racist, bigoted and accused him of suffering from a fear of Muslims. I certainly did not read any of that on the billboard. Simply, that the Representatives are idiots. So where was Rashida Tlaib in calling out Antifa for their calls for violence against conservatives? You don’t see that in the news because it doesn’t exist. It’s ok to be violent and name call if you are a Democrat.
This same philosophy has been on display from Democrats all over the news cycles in the past. Just recently, we covered on multiple occasions the anti-Semitism that has been on full display in the Democratic Party. It’s ok for them to be bigoted towards the Jews and that’s free speech and standing for morals and values. If you stand against a Democrat, you’re a racist bigot and don’t deserve to live in this country and society.
I for one happen to agree with the shop owner that the 4 freshmen representatives in the “squad” are absolute idiots. They are an embarrassment to our country and should be an embarrassment to the Democratic Party. Yet, the Democrats continue to support them day in and day out. I think it’s a great time to go put on my “I’m not racist, I’m just conservative” t-shirt from the Liberty Loft store and be proud to stand against these idiots.
