“One Horrific Weekend”

By Gary Bauer, Campaign for Working Families


Excerpts from this article:

The nation was reeling over the weekend from the horrific mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. At least 31 people were killed and more than 50 were wounded… Just hours ago, President Trump addressed the nation from the White House…


…The bodies of the victims had not been identified yet before the left saw a crisis that could be exploited for political gain, and exploit it they did.
Fake News Isn’t Helping
One of the most troubling issues surrounding events like these is the cherry picking of information to intentionally benefit the left and demonize conservatives. 
When a Bernie Sanders supporter with a hit list of Republicans went on a shooting rampage intending to kill as many Republicans as possible, the media did its best to downplay any suggestion that his attack was politically motivated…
This weekend, the media said that the El Paso shooter was a racist who hated Hispanic immigrants.  That was certainly a big part of his disturbing manifesto.  But there was much more than just that. 

He expressed an animus toward both political parties and corporate America.  But no one is blaming the anti-business rhetoric of the left for his attack.

He was a proponent of population control.  But no one is blaming Planned Parenthood for his attack.

He expressed alarm at climate change, farming and oil drilling.  But no one is blaming the environmental movement for his attack. 

He worried about the impact of automation on American workers.  But no one is blaming Andrew Yang for his attack.

What about the Dayton killer? 

He was a registered Democrat, an ardent socialist (and Satanist) and a supporter of Elizabeth Warren.  But no one is blaming her for the Dayton murders.

He had a history of supporting Antifa.  He called the man who was killed when he attempted to firebomb the Washington state ICE facility a “martyr,” and retweeted comments mocking Antifa’s vicious attack on journalist Andy Ngo.  But no one is blaming Antifa for the Dayton murders.

We should have a national conversation about the message being taught to young people today telling them there is no God, that they are a cosmic accident, that there is no meaning to life and no afterlife. 
Let’s talk about Hollywood’s hypocrisy in its “glorification of violence” and the fact that virtually every prominent entertainment figure is telling our youth that killing an innocent unborn child is a cherished constitutional right. 
Let’s consider posting the Ten Commandments in more public schools
so that more children might read its clear moral teachings and its admonition against murder.
Let’s talk about the constant assault on faith, and the undermining of the family and the institutions and values that promote unity

We need to have this conversation because the problem is much bigger than El Paso and Dayton…
