ELDER PATRIOT – John McCain’s silence in refusing to speak out against the violence and rioting being carried out on our streets stands in striking contrast to his words while he was campaigning for the presidency against an unaccomplished first-term senator with a seriously questionable background in 2008.
Why is John McCain silent today rather than offering similarly calming words to those rioters who are violently and vilely refusing to accept the results of the election especially after the disastrous last eight years under President Obama?
Why has Barack Obama encouraged the rioters to continue rather than admonish them for what Hillary Clinton has defined as anti-democratic behavior? The Community-Organizer-In-Chief had this to say:
“I’ve been the subject of protests during the course of my eight years,” Obama said at a joint news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday. “And I suspect that there’s not a president in our history that at some point hasn’t been subject to these protests. So, I would not advise people who feel strongly or who are concerned about some of the issues that have been raised during the course of the campaign, I wouldn’t advise them to be silent.”
That’s only partially true Barack. You never faced anything but peaceful protesting from Teas Party patriots so stop your sanctimonious defense of all protests no matter what form they take. Encouraging rioting, violence and property destruction two-months before the president is inaugurated, is a historical fist and sets a dangerous precedent for a civil society. Wouldn’t a more reasonable and less incendiary approach have been for the president to ask every American to take a wait and see position?
Of course this is not the way the Marxist Left rolls. For them it’s always about the struggle. Always.
Where is Hillary Clinton after having accused Donald Trump during their final debate of undermining our democracy when he promised his supporters that he would challenge the results of the election if it were determined that it had been rigged?
When Trump stood in defense of democracy that night Mrs. Clinton pounced on him:
“So that is not the way our democracy works. We’ve been around for 240 years. We’ve had free and fair elections. We’ve accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them. And that is what must be expected of anyone standing on a debate stage during a general election. You know, President Obama said the other day when you’re whining before the game is even finished it just shows you’re not up to doing the job. And let’s — you know, let’s be clear about what he is saying and what that means. He is denigrating — he’s talking down our democracy. And I, for one, am appalled that somebody who is the nominee of one of our two major parties would take that kind of position.”
Ahem, now that’s she lost where is she and why isn’t she defending the “peaceful transition of power” that she so rigorously defended that night?
Instead, the entire Washington establishment has remained mute. The people have spoken and they’re making it clear that they don’t like it.
The establishment tells us that they are simply protecting the right to protest that is a fundamental freedom in the United States. If that’s true then what should we make of John McCain’s threat to these peaceful protesters who have brought their complaints directly to the “people’s” house?
“I have never seen anything as disgraceful and outrageous and despicable as the last demonstration that just took place. You’re going to have to shut up or I’m gonna have you arrested. If we can’t get the Capitol Hill police in here immediately
to get out of here you lowlife scum.”
Protests that turn violent and/or lead to the destruction of property is rioting and that is against the law and does challenge lawful society.
This is the establishment’s convoluted attempt to disrupt Trump’s presidency before it even begins. It has become clear that the establishment will resort to any measure to prevent Donald Trump from “making America great again.”
It’s become overly clear since November 8th that getting Donald Trump elected was simply the opening salvo in what must be our collective effort to drown out the Marxist-Globalist agitators – from outside and from within our government – if we are to Make America Great Again.
