Considering The Leftist “I Condemn Both Sides” Line Of Illogic As A Way To Pass The Buck And Avoid Blame
Recently I heard Geraldo Rivera speaking about the rioting going on in too many cities across America, where we see Hillary’s supporters burning buildings and attacking people as they protest the election of Donald Trump to the presidency. Mr. Rivera self-righteously said “I condemn both sides” for the violence. Since there are no Donald Trump rioters burning things and beating people, I challenge Mr. Rivera’s sharing the blame equally between Democrats and Republicans.
I’m sorry to inform left-leaning folks like Mr. Rivera, but:
Republicans and conservatives don’t riot (even when the president says he will “fundamentally transform America” and then sets about doing it with vigor and determination).
Republicans don’t have illegal and unprotected email service while in official public offices.
Republicans don’t lie to the FBI and congress (and on the odd occasion that one does lie, he goes to jail).
Republicans don’t hire union thugs to beat and fire-bomb their political opponents.
Republicans don’t rig their party’s nominating process so the establishment’s favorite will win
Republican presidents don’t have a history of raping women and don’t stain interns’ blue dresses in the Oval Office.
Republicans don’t expose national security secrets to America’s enemies via unsecure email servers.
Republicans don’t force government-selected and imposed healthcare on American citizens.
Republicans presidents don’t unconstitutionally and illegally open our national borders to all illegal aliens who want to enter.
Republican presidents don’t encourage illegal aliens to vote in national elections.
Republican presidents don’t release the worst-of-the-worst from Gitmo so they can kill again, and so he can close the entire base once he has emptied it of our sworn enemies.
Republican governors don’t release hundreds of prisoners from prison in order to get their vote, once they are released.
Republican presidents don’t try to influence our ally, Israel’s, elections in an attempt to get rid of a leader they don’t personally like.
Republicans don’t make deals with Iran that assures they will possess nuclear weapons soon, and then give them tens of billions of dollars to make sure they can make the best, most destructive nuclear weapon possible.
Republicans presidents don’t call entire city police forces “racists”.
Republican presidents don’t nationalize local city police forces for political reasons.
Republican presidents don’t invite entertainers to the White House if during their performance they Rap about their “bitches” and “hos” and encourage the killing of police officers.
Republicans presidents don’t invite racist, terroristic groups like Black Lives Matter to the White House.
Republican Secretaries of State don’t say “what difference, at this point, does it make” when answering congressional questions about her culpability in the deaths of four Americans in Libya.
Republican presidents don’t beg Vladimir Putin to give them a little more time to get re-elected so they can more easily do the things that Putin is telling them to do.
Republican presidents don’t try to “contain” terrorists, they try to kill them.
Republican presidents don’t allow their appointees to go unprosecuted when the FBI director publicly speaks for fifteen minutes listing the reasons why they should go directly to jail.
Republican presidents don’t strut about importantly, drawing “red lines” in the sand of the Middle East, and then let untold thousands of people be killed when that line is crossed.
Republican presidents don’t, prematurely, on a whim, and contrary to his military advisors’ advice and warning, withdraw troops from a war zone that has been won and pacified, and then a few months later have to put more American lives at risk by having to win the zone back again.
Republican presidents don’t promise to “fundamentally transform America”, although the newest Republican president-elect has promised to “Make America Great Again”, which is pretty much what every Republican wants to do, and I think that’s a good thing.
Most of the time when things go really bad for America it was a liberal Democrat who proposed it, planned it and/or did it, or a Democrat congress that passed the measure, and I’m sick and very tired of having Democrat apologists, more than likely a member of the supposedly neutral and impartial press, “blame both sides” for what Democrats, all alone, do.
