After the attack in Orlando, the Democrat/liberal situation room went into full response mode. The classic formula was on display once again. Same formula as always. It will be the same formula when the next one happens. One. Two. Three.
1. Politicize and Distract – Within 13 seconds the subject was changed from a terrorist attack to yet another case of an evil “assault weapon” forcing a human being to pull its trigger. Among the left, worries are now emerging that AR-15’s will soon evolve into weapons that can fire themselves.
2. Cover-up – The Department of Justice (the same DOJ which will decide whether or not to cover up for Hillary’s crimes) released the transcripts of the 911 calls from the night of the attack. All references to “Allah” and “ISIS” were removed. Now, what could possibly be the reason for doing that? Another deadly dose of political correctness? Even more outrageously, the word “Allah” was replaced with the word “God.” After a massive outcry, the unedited version was later released.
3. Use the attack as a political weapon – The Obama administration denied a request for emergency funding to the State of Florida. Gov. Rick Scott requested “$5 million in federal funds under the Stafford Act to help with “emergency response efforts, law enforcement response, emergency medical care, counseling services and other social services to assist victims.” Governor Scott (R) pointed out that the Obama administration has approved emergency funds for a water main break in Massachusetts, the Boston Marathon bombing, and the Flint water crisis. All of those happen to be in Democrat states.
Yes to funds for a water main break and no to funds for the worst terrorist attack in the U.S. since 911? And $5 million? That’s the interest on the interest of the money they borrow every hour (only a slight exaggeration).
John F. Kennedy, Patrick Moynihan, and the Democrats of the past must be turning in their graves.
