It was bound to happen. When Hillary Clinton opened the â€œbasket of deplorablesâ€ and described what was in it, she set the stage for an increasing crescendo of insults and intolerant acts by her Democrat and leftist supporters.
The day after the presidential election Democrats were in shock, vowing to recheck everything and inventing an excuse for doing so. The Russians were the bad guys. They somehow â€œstole the electionâ€ was and still is the â€œgo toâ€ excuse. Then the day after the inauguration, it became non-stop impeach, impeach, impeach. The fact that Trump hadnâ€™t made a single decision didnâ€™t dissuade the impeachment â€œcallsâ€, many of which were based on the very things that Obama and Hillary actually did. But onward and upward they persisted, or maybe downward to a hell of their own making, the Democrats screamed a constant stream of insults supported by lunatic often violent protests.
However, when you scream with an assortment of four letter words, see DNC Chair Perez, mockingly use gutter imagery, see Colbert, and more someone will eventually drift well beyond any civilized bounds. Thus enters Kathy Griffin.
By now, we all know of the bloody beheading picture of Trump. It was sufficiently gruesome that it scared Trumpâ€™s 11 year-old son. Of course, Griffin has been fired by CNN although I donâ€™t really know why â€“ some claim about exceeding their bounds of propriety. Really, CNN, what is your propriety standard? My guess is that it is at least equal to Colbertâ€™s gutter imagery or is it actually a little bit lower, – say below â€œfakeâ€ news to insanity.
With folks like Kathy Griffin in the lead, my hope is that the Democrat Party suffers even more. (Notably, she has apologized after claiming her intent was not what it appeared. It is always convenient to have the benefit of 20-20 hindsight rather than thoughtful foresight, except as someone once told me â€œyou canâ€™t fix stupidâ€. And the Democrat Party appears to be stuck on stupid.)
