After a year of having Donald Trump on the campaign trail and in front of the cameras, you’d think by now the media and the rest of the country would be used to his brand of political engagement, which often features off-the-cuff statements.
Nonetheless, given how much the left hates the man, they’ll stop at nothing to paint him up to be the devil and twist his every comment to suit their narrative. Yet when it comes to controversial remarks from their own candidates, including the current sitting president, suddenly there’s radio silence.
The Washington Examiner reports, During his Tuesday rally in North Carolina, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump warned gun rights supporters that there was nothing they could do if Hillary Clinton’s judicial appointees abolished the Second Amendment, before wondering aloud if the amendment itself might offer a solution.
“Hillary essentially wants to abolish the Second Amendment,” Trump told supporters. “By the way, and if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks.”
“Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is,” Trump said, adding “I don’t know.”
This, as you might imagine, is igniting a firestorm online, as rabid liberals in the media seize this opportunity with glee to pick apart the GOP nominee and accuse him of supporting some sort of armed insurrection using aggressive language.
However, they seem to conveniently forget the time their dear favorite Barack Obama fired up some of his own incendiary salvos.
Per the Washington Times, At a campaign event in Philadelphia in June 2008, Mr. Obama told supporters, “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun. Because from what I understand, folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”
Later that year, as polls showed a close race between Mr. Obama and Republican nominee John McCain, Mr. Obama urged a crowd of about 1,500 at a campaign rally in Elko, Nevada, to get confrontational in their community for him.
“I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors,” Mr. Obama said. “I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face.”
Gee, that certainly seems like inflammatory political rhetoric, wouldn’t you agree?
Then again, hoping for a little consistency among the radical left is probably asking too much.
