The sad state of the radicalized Democratic party was once again on full display in the aftermath of Saturday’s tragic mass shooting at an El Paso Walmart store.
The bodies of the 20 victims of yet another senseless kill-crazy rampage had not even been identified or even gone cold before Democrats rushed to politicize the suffering in order to score political points.
Being that El Paso is his home turf, it was no big surprise that Robert Francis O’Rourke was the first to draw blood against President Trump who he accused of being a racist as well as being responsible for the carnage.
O’Rourke who is more famously known by his phony Latino nickname of Beto sought to boost his dismal hopes in the race for the 2020 nomination by opening fire on Trump.

Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) said Saturday President Trump bore some responsibility for a shooting in El Paso, Texas that killed at least 20 people.
Asked by news reporters whether the president was in some part responsible for the shooting, O’Rourke, who formerly served as the city’s mayor, responded firmly.
“Yes. We’ve had a rise in hate crimes every single one of the last three years,” O’Rourke said Saturday evening. “During an administration where you’ve had the president call Mexicans rapists and criminals.”
“He is a racist, and he stokes racism in this country,” the former congressman and current 2020 candidate for president continued. “It does not just offend our sensibilities; it fundamentally changes the character of this country and it leads to violence.”
O’Rourke’s statement came after politicians from both parties including Trump expressed their condolences for the shooting Saturday that injured as many as 20 people and killed at least 18, according to media reports.
It has become a knee jerk reaction to the political left to blame the president for any shootings carried out by mentally unstable losers because to them its just good politics.
The 2020 Democrats were quick on the draw with their iPhones to similarly fire off shameless and dishonest tweets while they stomped up and down on the grief of the families of those murdered or wounded in El Paso.
Our country is under attack from white nationalist terrorism, inspiring murder on our soil and abetted by weak gun laws. If we are serious about national security, we must summon the courage to name and defeat this evil.

We must come together to reject this dangerous and growing culture of bigotry espoused by Trump and his allies.
Instead of wasting money putting children in cages, we must seriously address the scourge of violent bigotry and domestic terrorism. 3/

Tonight I’m heartsick for El Paso & I’m once again disgusted by the GOP leadership in Washington. Americans shouldn’t have to live in fear that if they go to Walmart, or a festival, or school, or just walk down the street that they won’t make it home alive. This has to stop.

Some are looking to exploit the slaughter to promote themselves as the candidate who will begin gun confiscations if elected – like the ruthless Kamala Harris.

And Oprah’s guru agreed with Harris:
We must outlaw all assault style weapons for civilian use. Even then, there will still be millions of them on the street. Next we need to outlaw the manufacture and sale of the bullets that they carry.

As for the POTUS, he exercised leadership by expressing his and Melania’s “thoughts and prayers” as well as soundly denouncing the cowardly act that if you listen to cynical lunkheads like Beto, were practically carried out in Trump’s name.
….Melania and I send our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to the great people of Texas.

Once again, we see that there is no level that Democrats won’t stoop to out of their blind hatred of Trump and their lust for power.
After all, it’s easier to just blame Trump while ignoring the national plague of mental illness or the complicity of their deep-pocketed Hollywood entertainment industry supporters who have poisoned generations with their ultra-violent movies and graphic shooter-style video games.
And just like magic, the media has moved on from the manufactured outrage of Trump’s jousting with Rep. Elijah Cummings over “rat-infested Baltimore” and the shame of the impotent and senile Robert Mueller.
