Why Obama, And Everyone Else, Needs To Shut Up About ‘Violent Rhetoric’

President weighed in on the so called ‘’ in the GOP primary. The laughable insertion of his opinion on this topic should be obvious given his whole presidency has fanned the flames of hate.


President Barack Obama said Tuesday he was dismayed by “vulgar and divisive rhetoric” directed at women and minorities as well as the violence that has occurred in the 2016 presidential campaign, a swipe at Republican front-runner Donald that also served as a challenge to other political leaders to speak out and set a better example.

“The longer that we allow the political rhetoric of late to continue and the longer that we tacitly accept it, we create a permission structure that allows the animosity in one corner of our politics to infect our broader society,” Obama said. “And animosity breeds animosity.”

Oh shut up hypocrite!

Mr. “I don’t want to quell anger… I’m angry!” and “Argue With Neighbors, Get In Their Face” and “Whose Ass To Kick” wants to weigh in on the undeniably disingenuous attacks on Trump’s ‘rhetoric?’ The same guy that is buddy buddy with the ‘violent rhetoric’ spewing #BlackLivesMatter movement? Yeah, no.

However, it’s important for people to know this isn’t a new tactic for liberals. Trump’s opposition has just decided they are going to use liberal tactics to kill his campaign while lamenting those same tactics in the past, and will lament them again in the general election. That’s what we call intellectual dishonesty folks.

Democrats have labeled the Republicans as having ‘violent rhetoric’ for as long as can be remembered. The was falsely accused of ‘violent rhetoric’ countless times.  Do you not remember how liberals tried to pin the ‘violent rhetoric’ tag on Sarah Palin for the ‘cross-hairs’ graphic?  They all but accused her of shooting Gabby Giffords herself for crying out loud.

The left’s use of this tactic is well-known.  The MSM’s coordinated obliviousness to the left’s common ‘violent rhetoric’ is also well-known.  A lot of that ‘violent rhetoric’ is document here.

This old, tried and true, utterly dishonest attack on Republicans and conservatives was universally derided by the right until Trump came along.  Then the #NeverTrump simpletons decided they were going to hitch a ride on the Saul Alinsky bandwagon.  They are playing right into the hands of the left, and spreading disinformation while they are at it.

Trump’s ‘violent rhetoric’ isn’t unusual, isn’t new, and hasn’t crossed any imaginary lines to go too far. At least in the minds of fully-functional brains.  Frankly, Trump’s ‘violent rhetoric’ has been relatively mild in the history of American politics.  If we were keeping score on ‘violent rhetoric’ the left is way ahead in spewing hate.  Furthermore, their ‘violent rhetoric’ has actually led to widespread … well … violence. Including the violent protesters at the Chicago Trump rally recently.  When you look at the ‘violent rhetoric’ spewed towards Trump and his supporters for the past year or so, including by the right, Trump’s ‘violent rhetoric’ could be considered ‘self-defense.’

So do yourself a favor, stop embarrassing yourselves with your hypocrisy.  Political speech has been used as an excuse by unstable people to use violence as a means since the beginning of the world, and throughout the history of the United States.  Trump hasn’t been a catalyst to anything.

After all, if we are going to blame Trump’s campaign events for violence, we have to blame for all anti-gay hate and violence.  Both assertions are just stupid, and baseless hyperbole.
