Sooo…the Democrats and associated Leftist hypocrites have been awarded the Sanctimonious Card. And they are bleeding it dry. In fact, they will likely do so furiously for days (13 more at the very least).
As an example, the pillar of the mainstream Liberalism which has proudly and shamelessly clogged up the free-thinking model of American citizenry with its political leanings has jumped aboard the holier-than-thou train.
The Washington Post editorial board on Wednesday called for President Trump’s immediate removal from office, saying he is solely responsible for the violent mob that stormed the Capitol.
In a scathing editorial, the newspaper said Trump incited violence by encouraging rioters to take action as Congress convened a joint session to tally and record the Electoral College votes certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.
“Responsibility for this act of sedition lies squarely with the president, who has shown that his continued tenure in office poses a grave threat to U.S. democracy,” the Post wrote. “He should be removed.”
“The president is unfit to remain in office for the next 14 days,” the op-ed continued. “Every second he retains the vast powers of the presidency is a threat to public order and national security.”
OK, WaPo. I’m not justifying the actions of these knuckleheads nor am I intending to minimize the gravity of what they have done. I will own up to it, as a Conservative voice – what they did was destructive and reeked of “seditious revolution.” If you storm a federal building where the highest ranking national politicians loiter, you are taking your life into your own hands. If you need that spelled out, you were probably raised in the culture of participation awards.
But stop this pretentious crap. The “Capitol stormers” were a little nuts and a whole lot of moronic. Mob mentality has such an effect, you know?
Oh, you do, of course.
Nevertheless, let me remind you that the Capitol was was evacuated quickly, and destruction and vandalism, though bad, were not as bad as what we’ve seen recently. Remember the Summer of Floyd?
If the mob mentality afflicts liberal “rallies” and “peaceful BLM marches,” the impetus isn’t so strong for the media to act ingratiatingly virtuous. Where was the Left’s clamor to send Jacob Frey to the retirement line after George Floyd’s death and its ensuing destruction of city blocks of the American urbanscape?
Incidentally, the last I heard, the Capitol was still standing, and in fact Congress was able to return after the overthrow crew was cleared out so the politicians could resume the busywork of officializing that Joe Biden is in fact our “President-Elect.”
Ah well, I will sit back and enjoy the Sanctimonious Wave for the next few weeks. I will prepare and thicken my hide because the Liberal self-righteous castigation will reach an epic din.
