With So Much Smoke In The Year’s Race, Fire Is Inevitable

Democrat operatives firebombed a N.C. Republican headquarters. Just when you thought this presidential race could not get any more heated, one party firebombed another. Even Kim Jung Un of North Korea said, “Hey, Americans, take this down a notch.”

Observers accused Democrats of wanting to start a war on whites. I don’t think this is the case. I’ll need more proof, like if they firebomb the kale aisle of Whole Foods.

Hillary instinctively blamed the firebombing on an anti-Presbyterian YouTube video.

“This highly disturbing act goes far beyond vandalizing property; it willfully threatens our community’s safety via fire, and its hateful message undermines decency, respect and integrity in civic participation,” Hillsborough Mayor Tom Stevens said.

The North Carolina Democratic Party also condemned the attack but will probably plead the Fifth if asked about it. Whether anyone is brought to justice on this depends, as it sadly does these days, on whether the Attorney General is Republican or Democrat.

It’s odd how the liberals, the self-professed “tolerant” ones who constantly label anyone who disagrees with them as “hateful,” seem to be perpetrating the most violence in America, whether it’s attacking Trump supporters or rioting after a police shooting.

I am not sure how we got to this point in this country.  Apparently we can no longer have a  difference of political opinion. Those of us who believe in limited government, balanced budgets and individual responsibility are the “hateful” ones. Somehow the left has spun a difference of opinion as to the role of government into folks who are evil and worthy of attack.

I have many friends on the left and enjoy engaging them in meaningful political discussion.  To me it should be as Shakespeare said in The Taming of the Shrew: “And do as adversaries do in the law, strive mightily, but eat and drink as friends.”  I am not sure where humor and civility have gone in this PC world.

I have  never seen so few bumper stickers in a presidential race as this one between Trump and Hillary. I asked a buddy, a huge Trump supporter, why he had no bumper sticker.  He said he was afraid someone would key his car.

The rancor is incredible. Hillary Clinton’s speeches start with the playing of the National Anthem to make sure everyone is seated so she can begin, all because of an NFL quarterback who makes $16 million a year and says he cannot get a fair shake in America.

Democrats are suddenly against email hacker espionage when they start getting WikiLeak-ed on themselves.

We have a Democrat candidate for president who says in WikiLeak-ed emails that she “cannot relate” to the middle class and is cozy with Wall Street. And we have a Republican candidate who cannot relate to the rich,  whom Wall Street hates. That is not how the brochure says it’s supposed to be. It is Bizzaro World.

Every instance of a questionable police shooting in this country makes inner-city folks feel like they can smash windows and steal an NBA jersey or flat- screen TV.  Advice to the young Democrats out there looting: Do not forget the remote and batteries. It’s embarrassing to have to go back to the same store the next day.

Even the Kardashians are not safe. Poor Kim was hog-tied with a rope in her  Paris hotel and robbed of millions of dollars worth of jewelry. French police vowed to get the criminal(s). They already have a lineup for her to look at comprised of known cat burglar jewel thieves and all past French rodeo champions.

Any of the 16 other GOP presidential candidates could have beaten Hillary Clinton. Who would have thought Billy Bush, Jeb Bush’s cousin, would have a tape that would change this race? Jeb has to be thinking, “You had the tape, why not release it earlier this year?”

Given their marching orders by the Dems, the media conjured up a woman who said Trump “went too far” with her in the first class cabin of a

flight decades ago.  Trump wasn’t so much angry at the false allegation as he was mad that it got out that he once flew commercial.
