…allow me to show you this excerpt from Peter D’Oench’s article for CBS News-Miami:
A man accused of threatening to kill a Florida lawmaker in an online posting ranted about Republicans during a courtroom hearing to evaluate his mental health.
Steve St. Felix said he was sorry about his Facebook post and did not mean to harm Florida Rep. Jose Felix Diaz, but was fed up with the Republican party.Days earlier, the 34-year-old St. Felix allegedly posted a message on Facebook to Diaz saying, “I’ll kill your [expletive] and you better not show up to the next REC meeting.”
In court for a mental healthevaluation, St. Felix waved and smiled for the camera before unleashing an outburst.
“Marco Rubio! Nelson Diaz! Manny Diaz! Manny Diaz Junior! Carlos Gimenez,” he rattled off before being escorted out of the courtroom.
He even threatened a cameraman.
Police put him and his family on 24-hour guard after the Facebook post.
This, of course, comes on the heels of the late, unlamented (at least by me), james hodgkinson firing dozens of rounds at a group of Republican House members practicing for a charity event and severely injuring Rep. Steven Scalise in the process.
Now, here’s a question for the mainstream media people crying that Donald Trump’s attacks on their honesty in news reporting puts them in danger: whee do you think people like steve st. felix and james hodgkinson get their news; the input that resulted in the opinions they acted out on?
And when you’re finished dodging that question, here’s another one for you: speaking in New York City during the 2016 campaign, Hillary Clinton said:
“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people — now 11 million. He tweets and retweets their offensive hateful mean-spirited rhetoric. Now, some of those folks — they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America.”
Tell us: did that list of reasons to take out Trump supporters – half would be about 33 million of them – endanger them? Was it the reason so many people wearing Trump gear were assaulted by Trump haters afterwards? Did you connect Ms. Clinton’s words with those assaults? Because I don’t remember that you did.
And now, one final question:
Why don’t you hypocrites just shut the hell up?
