Matt Walsh helps us find an answer to the earlier question, What Kind of Moonbats Would Not Honor Ryan and Carryn Owens?
It wasn’t just the refusal of Democrat pols to offer more than the bare minimal respect for a fallen hero and his widow during the historic address to a joint session of Congress Tuesday night. Normally, both sides applaud at State of the Union type speeches when the speaker has said something all sane people can agree on. Not this time:
Democrats remained seated with their hands in their laps even as Trump uttered the most non-controversial and universal of sentiments. They refused to applaud when Trump said we should put Americans first. The refused to applaud when Trump talked about fighting drug addiction in the inner city and corruption in Washington. They refused to applaud when Trump discussed the need to make sure certain blue collar Americans, like coal miners, still have jobs. They refused to applaud Trump’s vow to fight Islamic terrorism. They refused to applaud when Trump movingly stated that “we all salute the same flag and are made by the same God.” When the president highlighted the victims of illegal immigrant crime, many Democrats let out audible groans of disgust. And, most shameful of all, a number of top Democrats refused to stand and clap as the president honored the widow of a fallen Navy SEAL. …
If we were to judge their positions by the things they declined to applaud, we must arrive at the conclusion that Democrats are staunchly opposed to the flag, God, the law, job creation, and military widows, and enthusiastically in favor of drug addiction, terrorism, crime, unemployment, and murder.
Why would they make such a prominent display of odious, destructive, lunatic positions?
Democrat politicians know they’ll get in trouble with their liberal constituency if they appear to be even vaguely opposed to illegal immigration, Muslim terrorism, and the impoverishment of coal miners, or even slightly in favor of the rule of law, prosperity, freedom, and God.
Unhinged by their hatred of Trump, true believer liberals are forgetting to wear masks in public so as not to terrify normal people. If this continues, the 2018 midterms are likely to go well.
