The Establishment may not be the most vocal and most lethal of the groups that would love nothing more than to see Donald Trump impeached, silenced, and ushered out of the Oval Office permanently, but they do have influence and they are admittedly the lapdogs of the Liberals to the point of almost dogged zeal, providing them in times of need with a sofa upon which to crash.
Their numbers are large and they are deeply entangled in the Swamp weeds and reeds that wind about their ankles like red tape at the Food & Drug Administration. What they are not known for is standing up to the thugs on the Left, especially when it came to the policies of Barack Hussein Obama, almost as if they were on board with those as well.
In the wake of the Charlottesville Confederacy Monument clashes between violent and aggressive alt-Right and alt-Left versions of idiocy, the two former Bush presidents decided that, although they never had the stomach to vocally oppose any anti-American policy of the Obama regime, they decided that a single speech by the current president was just beyond the pale and did not go far enough. They’ve broken their silence and condemned the violence in Charlottesville.
Independent Journal Review:
Late Wednesday morning, both of the former presidents Bush, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, issued a statement on the violence at Saturday’s white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and the reaction that stemmed from it:
America must always reject racial bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred in all forms. As we pray for Charlottesville, we are reminded of the fundamental truths recorded by that city’s most prominent citizen in the Declaration of Independence: we are all created equal and endowed by our Creator with unalienable rights. We know these truths to be everlasting because we have seen the decency and greatness of our country.
While it does not mention President Donald Trump, the statement comes less than 24 hours after the president gave a highly charged press conference on the topic.
“You had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists, okay?” Trump said. “And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly.”
He added that “you also had people that were very fine people on both sides.”
Flyers promoting the rally, dubbed “Unite the Right,” included a Nazi eagle as well as “Pepe the Frog,” the crudely-drawn cartoon character that has become a symbol of white supremacy for the self-proclaimed “alt-right.”
During the rally, the torch-bearing crowd chanted “Jews will not replace us.”
With all sides rallying against President Trump, it really would take an absolute, honest-to-goodness miracle if he makes it through his first term without an attempt on his life. As the Left and the Right continue to plot and incite more and more violence against our president, the last line of defense is the Secret Service.
Even there, however, we have agents who are not willing to place the president’s safety as a priority above their own ideological bent in the other direction. If you recall, Kerry O’Grady had the audacity to point out (on Facebook no less) that she would never take a bullet for the president. Sad, but that’s the sum total of our hope these days. Cowardice and prejudice.
