In response to the deaths San Bernardino, there was a noticeable difference in how those running for the office of President responded through Twitter.
“My thoughts and prayers are with the shooting victims and their families in San Bernardino.” Ben Carson
California shooting looks very bad. Good luck to law enforcement and God bless. This is when our police are so appreciated?” Donald Trump
“Praying for the victims, their families & the San Bernardino first responders in the wake of this tragic shooting”. Jeb Bush
“My thoughts and prayers go out to those impacted by the shooting in San Bernardino, especially the first responders.” John Kasich
“Horrifying news out of #San Bernadino. Enough is enough: it’s time to stand up to the @NRA and enact meaningful gun safety laws.” Martin O’Malley
“I refuse to accept this as normal. We must take action to stop gun violence now.” Hillary Clinton
“Mass shootings are becoming an almost-everyday occurre3nce in this country. This sickening and senseless gun violence must stop.” Bernie Sanders
So in summary, if you’re a Republican candidate you offer condolences, concerns for those suffering and encouragement to law enforcement. If your a Democrat candidate you’re looking for what’s in it for yourself as a vote getting tool.
If the Democrats want to do something about gun violence there are plenty of places to start but empty rhetoric only says “look at me, I’m pounding my fist to show I care.” Since their bold statements imply that they know exactly the reason behind this tragedy then we’re all anxious to hear what brilliant piece of legislation would have prevented this horrible act in California, a state that already has some of the toughest gun regulations in the country. But maybe like climate change, talking about it is enough to stem the tide of all evils.
Just go ahead and emblazon the term “the devil made me do it” on the seal of the Democratic National Committee. Decadence, elimination of God, bowing to the environment as a god rather than the creator of the environment, and the general loathing for individual self-reliance are considered liberal traits by many. There’s an obvious similarity in values between liberals and the devil. Liberals seem to clearly believe that there should be a lack of moral consequences for the decisions we make in life and hence a lack of moral responsibility. The fact that there are over one million abortions a year is horrific. Throw in the fact that Planned Parenthood harvests body parts like their running an auto scrap yard is unconscionable.
The push by liberals to reduce individual self-reliance is significant. Without independence, government is free to grow at will, inflicting liberal collectivism upon society rather than individuality. Take home-school teaching as an example. Many liberals fume over the notion that education can be provided by parents without government interference or control. Another example is masculinity. We’ve seen the liberals’ definition of a man; a dainty, doe-eyed, child-like representation of an adult complete with hair gel, skinny jeans and a fanny pack. It’s not surprising that this is the picture that liberals want to paint. Boldness, masculinity, independence and family values reek of individual power.
And finally, compassion. Liberals have compassion but for some reason there’s more compassion for the criminals than for the victim. We guess that since the anti-God ideals and planks in their political platform, help create the criminals, the next logical action is to make excuses for them.
All of this points to a real similarity between liberals and the devil. Or at least makes the devil a big fan.
