Last night, the United States witnessed the worst mass shooting in its history. 59 people were gunned down while they attended a concert in Las Vegas by an assailant perched in his hotel room 32 stories up.
Awful. Tragic. Disgusting. Shocking. All of the above.
Rational people all across the country waited for the facts to come in before drawing conclusions and exploiting the dead Americans that hadn’t all even been identified yet.
Prominent Democrats had other plans. Unfortunately, they have been conditioned to immediately lash out against the right whenever a mass shooting takes place. And, as is usually the case, they are embarrassingly wrong about their conclusions.
Enter Hillary Clinton.
Ah yes. The “measured” Hillary Clinton found a way to blame the NRA with some hypothetical scenario that isn’t even remotely factually accurate.
Even the Washington Post wasn’t picking up what Hillary was putting down.
Thanks for that Hillary.
Also, just for the record, it’s extremely difficult to get an automatic weapon in this country despite what the media has been implying.
The liberal left hasn’t just been wrong with their reaction. They managed to provide some really disgusting responses too.
A CBS legal executive thought it would be fun to post the following on Facebook immediately after news of the massacre broke.
From The Daily Caller:
A top legal executive at CBS, Hayley Geftman-Gold, said she “is not even sympathetic” for the victims of the shooting at a country music festival at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas Sunday night.
“If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs will ever do the right thing,” wrote Geftman-Gold on Facebook, perhaps referring to Sandy Hook. “I’m actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans often are Republican gun toters.”
A fascinating and terrifying look into the liberal mind.
Can’t we do better than this?
I don’t care about your personal politics. That could not interest me any less. Following tragedies like this, we should all be on the same team trying to figure out what happened and help those who were hurt. Anything else is not only a waste of time but reckless as well.
