Jesse Jackson recently said that Barack Obama should pardon Hillary in order to halt all of the bad feelings currently floating about, and settle the sentiment of anger that is widespread in the nation. Of course Mr. Jackson is talking about the current anger and frustration on the part of Democrat bought-and-paid-for rioters and destroyers who are beating people and burning things because they didn’t get their way in the last election. He is, of course, interested in giving as much solace and support to these thugs as he can; after all, these undisciplined people are his political base and his party’s financial donors and voters. But I have news for Mr. Jackson: even if Obama’s pardoning Hillary would put the minds of Democrats at rest for their former candidate and her dark legal future, his fool fellow Democrats currently burning American cities would not stop rioting in protest over Donald Trump being elected president. And has Mr. Jackson considered how Republicans would feel if Hillary were relieved of any and all responsibility for her illegal actions?
So let me get this straight: Obama pardons Hillary for her crimes against the nation and its citizens, and Republicans are supposed to just sit back, smile contentedly and forgive and forget, while on Mr. Jackson’s side of the aisle there are violent radicals who will not be constrained or silenced, who are rioting and burning in protest over the election of Donald Trump in spite of the fact that the American people overwhelmingly voted for Mr. Trump to be the nation’s president?
I’d like to see what would happen to Mr. Jackson if he confronted the anti-Trump rioters and reminded these precious snowflakes that the most recent election settled the question of who would be our next president, and told the radicals to go home or go back to school and learn something, and be quiet. They’d probably be writing Mr. Jackson’s obituary the next morning.
Why is it always the Republicans who are asked to bite the bullet and shut up concerning issues they feel strongly about, while leftist radicals will never be halted from their passionate, violent, and illogical demonstrations, but are instead encouraged by Democrat leaders like Hillary and Obama, who only make idiotic statements along the lines of “they have a constitutional right to express their opinions” and let the larger issue of Democrat-funded violence and social disruption go unaddressed?
To answer my own question, the reason Republicans are always the ones asked to sit quietly and let the other side riot and disrupt is because Republicans are never the ones to riot and disrupt; it’s always the Democrat/liberal/progressives who are unable to keep cool when roadblocks are placed before them. And because Republicans are the only adults in the room, they are expected to suck up the leftist insults, abuse and destruction and remain silent and calm. May God help this great nation if Republicans should ever become as unreasonable and violent as the Democrat/progressives/liberals.
