(National Sentinel) Dangerous Hypocrisy: The “establishment” media is doing its best to convince as many Americans as possible that the so-called ‘bombs’ sent this week to notable Democrats and critics of POTUS Donald Trump were the result of the president’s ‘violent’ and ‘hostile rhetoric.’
“Given what Trump has done and said, this was absolutely predictable,” Paul Waldman wrote at The Washington Post. “In fact, it’s a wonder that it took this long. It’s not just that Trump advocates violence against his political opponents — though he does. It’s that everything about his rhetoric pushes his supporters in that direction.”
“The unrelenting hatred churned up by Donald Trump for the two years following 2016 is dangerous. A Washington Post columnist [Jamal Khashoggi] is dead and progressive icons are targets of bombs,” tweeted little-watched MSNBC host and one-time ‘conservative’ Joe Scarborough.

“If law enforcement wants to warn for future bomb targets, all they need to do is check Trump’s Twitter feed and play back tapes of his campaign rallies,’’ tweeted activist and writer Amy Siskind.
And not to be outdone, CNN actually referred to Democrats who were sent fake bombs as “Trump’s targets.”
Trump’s “targets?” Really?
Yes, of course. The Left’s outrage is the only outrage that counts because when things happen to them it’s so wrong and unfair. Meanwhile, when something bad happens to conservatives and, in this day and age especially, POTUS Trump supporters, not only does the disgustingly dishonest establishment media cheer it on but they pretend as though everyone on the Right has it coming.
For instance, where was the widespread media condemnation when twice-failed presidential loser Hillary Clinton said recently that her side of the political aisle should not be “civil” to the other side of the aisle?
In an interview with CNN (who else?), Clinton stated plainly that it is not possible to be civil with a party (the GOP) “that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about.” She noted further that if Democrats can win back one or both chambers of Congress, “that’s when civility can start again.”
“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. That’s why I believe if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength,” she said.
Of course, she’s not the only Left-wing Democrat to use this kind of rhetoric. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., has called on supporters to physically confront members of POTUS Trump’s Cabinet wherever they find them and to “push back on them.”
“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere!” she said earlier this year.
If that isn’t a dog whistle call for violence, then nothing is.
This all comes after a sitting member of Congress – House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La. – was nearly assassinated by a hard-Left Bernie Sanders supporter in June 2017 as he and other GOP lawmakers were practicing for their annual congressional softball game.
But fake bombs being sent to Democrats just two weeks before the 2018 midterms designed to do nothing more than change the political narrative and tilt it in favor the Donkey Party – well, that’s just too much!
POTUS Trump and Republicans have been targeted by unhinged Leftist mobs for nearly two years. For the Left-wing establishment media to feign outrage now over fake bombs and blame them on the president’s allegedly ‘violent’ rhetoric is a sick joke.
