Democrats have always loved wielding double standards. However, today, they are doubling down on their efforts of hypocrisy, especially considering the recent domestic terrorism acts that took the lives of at least 31 people in the cities of Dayton and El Paso. Recently the Justice Department announced it is considering bringing federal hate crime and federal firearms charges against the El Paso shooter that took the lives of at least 22 people. Both federal charges carry a possible death penalty. According to law enforcement, the gunman posted a “racist and anti-immigrant” manifesto.
The El Paso terrorist stated that he was acting in the sense of urgency and self-defense in his attempt to “protect, defend the endangered white race.” Democrats have pounced on this chance to demonize conservative gun owners, and link President Trump and his stance on immigration to white nationalism, racism, and the condoner of violence and murder.
Ahead of his trip to El Paso, Democratic Presidential Candidate, Beto O’Rourke, tweeted an attack against President Trump, accusing him that his racism inspired the 22 deaths in his hometown.
O’Rourke, polling at a dismal 2% since the last presidential debate, is taking the typical Democratic approach and politicizing not only this tragic event but also, using the murdering of 22 in his hometown to boost his non-existent presence for the presidency. What is more troubling than the racist bantering and immigrant pandering of the Left, is the disregard in sight and sound with regards to the nine lives lost in Dayton, Ohio at the hands of a self-described “Leftist.” Before its removal, the shooter’s Twitter account indicated re-tweets of “extreme left-wing and anti-police, as well as tweets supporting Antifa, or anti-fascist, protestors.
The reaction to the senseless, mentally diseased inspired shootings of Dayton and El Paso have been entirely one-sided and for a good reason according to Democrats. The political agenda of the Left has and continues to be that members of the Republican party and supporters of the president, are fanatically racist and are to be blamed for continued mass shootings. The Dayton domestic terrorist made several references on his Twitter account supporting Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren; however, Democrats continue to downplay their legitimacy, indicating that evidence indicating the political influence or inspiration of the gunman is inconclusive.
Enter the “Democrat Double Standard on Domestic Terrorism!” Immediately following the surfacing of online, “alt-right” inspired material of the El Paso shooter, Democrats immediately took to both the air and social media outlets to denounce and demonize President Trump and link him as the responsible party for political homicide. However, what the Democrats weren’t expecting, was yet another mass shooting, this time, at the hands of an “alt-Left,” Bernie/Warren supporting, anti-police, mentally disturbed madman. One of the Dayton shooter’s tweets read, “I want socialism, and ill not wait for the idiots to come around to understanding finally.” What was the Democratic response? That the El Paso’s online hatred was pure and real; and that of that Dayton shooter’s political motives were incorrect or inconclusive. The typical, Double Down, Double Standard of the Democrats!
On Tuesday, August 6th, Fox’s Tucker Carlson claimed that America’s white supremacy problem “is a hoax.” He asserted that “the whole thing is a lie.” And he downplayed the threat by saying it’s “actually not a real problem in America. The combined membership of every white supremacist organization in this county would be able to fit inside a college football stadium.” Naturally, these remarks tragically contradict those of the Left who want to illustrate an American “domestic takeover” of a white nationalist.
The facts are clear, and the proof is in the pandering; Democrats are yet again politicizing a national tragedy for personal and political gain. “Beto Boy” is banking on gaining the popular Hispanic vote in a state that didn’t want him as a senator. Democrat’s double standards on domestic terrorism are demeaning to the innocent lives lost and dangerous for the future. Failing to identify evil and insanity where it exists will only support denial and bring about more death and destruction. For the Democratic party of division, their candidates will be all too willing to take a DOUBLE HELPING of political opportunity by weaponizing a national tragedy.
