In many countries, an assassination of a major official for blatant political reasons/causes would be enough to trigger what could be easily referred to as a purge; a crackdown on all those who may have aided, abetted, or stoked the rage of the killer(s) responsible.
Politicians like (((Bernie Sanders))) and Maxine Waters would be dragged away from Capitol Hill in cuffs, journalists – many of whom are of the Jewish genotype – would be censored and oftentimes arrested, and groups aligning themselves (even loosely) to the criminal(s) would be immediately banned.
In some cases, after a series of speedy trials, several prisons would be bathed for quite a good long while in the glorious smells of gunpowder and the death of traitors/terrorists.
But here in America, we only have prayers, Twitter hashtags, and a sold-out Congressional baseball game to resist a now-violent Leftist uprising against what they perceive to be Fascism or Nazism reborn – Trump and the Republicans are neither of those things, but whatever.
And in my book, a lack of ruthlessness on the part of leadership amounts to the condoning of such vicious actions – a funny way to repay a Congressman for his support in even the most difficult of times.
Rep. Steve Scalise, a congressional staffer, a lobbyist and a member of the Capitol police force were shot Wednesday in Alexandria, Virginia, during a Republicans’ early-morning practice ahead of a charity baseball game.
Federal law enforcement officials identified the alleged shooter as James Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Illinois, who died following a shootout with authorities.
At least six people including Scalise, the third ranking member of House Republican leadership as the majority whip, were hospitalized.
Scalise was in critical condition after suffering damage to internal organs, and his injuries will require additional operations, according to a MedStar Washington Hospital Center medical update late Wednesday.
“Congressman Steve Scalise sustained a single rifle shot to the left hip. The bullet traveled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding,” MedStar said in a statement put out by Scalise’s office. “He underwent immediate surgery, and an additional procedure to stop bleeding. He has received multiple units of blood transfusion. His condition is critical, and he will require additional operations. We will provide periodic updates.”
House Republican and Democratic leaders called for unity, while President Donald Trump said in an address from the White House that the prayers of the nation and world are with Scalise.
“Congressman Scalise is a friend, and a very good friend,” Trump said. “He’s a patriot. And he’s a fighter. He will recover from this assault — and Steve, I want you to know that you have the prayers not only of the entire city behind you, but of an entire nation, and frankly the entire world. America is praying for you and America is praying for all of the victims of this terrible shooting.”
Ryan condemned the shooting and praised the Capitol Police on the House floor later Wednesday.
“We are united. We are united in our shock. We are united in our anguish. An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us,” Ryan said, drawing a bipartisan standing ovation.
Donald, do us all a favor and skip the obsequies (that’s what this will possibly literally become) in favor of crushing the Left in this country once and for all.
Also please think about going above and beyond, and arrest Super Cuck Ryan while you’re at it.
I know you’re probably not capable of such true Patriotism, but at least understand that such measures would be necessary to transform MAGA into something other than a slogan now useful to only mouth-breathers.
