Hoo, BOY. I never even thought of this.
Well, I mean, DUH. As I recollect, there was WAY more snickering and joke-cracking over it from Progressivists than there was dismay, sympathy, or outrage. From Democrat Socialist politicians, a loud silence was about the extent of it. Which backs up the adaptation of my longstanding contention about Trump once more: it’s not the guns they hate, not really. It’s not even the gun violence. It’s US.
As I said at the time: he was no nutjob, or no more so than the rest of them. There was nothing all that extraordinary about him. He was a mainstream Dem-Soc Progressivist. He just had balls enough to actually go out and do it—something a lot of them have come right out and fantasized openly about of late.
If there truly is a meaningful distinction to be made between them and the cucks/NeverTrumpTards/Vichy GOPers, that would have to be it: the GOPers don’t actually want us dead, and aren’t likely to come at us guns a-blazing…literally. Or not yet, at least.
