The Las Vegas Mass Shooting – Deplorables Deserved It

Posted by M. C. on October 13, 2017

Telling indeed has been the readiness of left-leaning commentators to steer the narrative over “the largest mass shooting in American history” away from this bedrock fact.  Leftists, rather, don’t want for their ideology and party to in any way be linked to a despicable excuse-for-a-man that is responsible for conducting a historically unprecedented mass shooting.

Had an impartial spectator not known better, he could be forgiven for confusing this event with a Trump rally.

And this is the point:

While the public has not yet been made privy to any information regarding Paddock’s subjective intentions on the evening that his name became synonymous with evil, there is one basic fact on which partisans from across the political spectrum seem to be in total agreement.  Whether Paddock—like Democrat mass shooter and Bernie Sanders supporter, James Hodgkinson, who deliberately and methodically attempted to assassinate Republican Congress members on a Virginia baseball field a few months back—meant to slaughter Republican voters, he did in point of fact slaughter people who, undoubtedly, were predominantly Republican voters.

They were Red Staters, Deplorables, who came under attack in Vegas.

That the Democratic left understood this was gotten readily enough from the remarks made by any number of commentators, from CNN to CBS.  On social media, leftists tweeted expressions of joy over the fact that likely Trump supporters were targeted, and a CBS legal executive wrote on Facebook that she had no sympathy with the victims because of their political affiliation.

To be sure, the predominantly (though not exclusively) white men and women who sported American attire, paid homage to veterans, and sang “God Bless America;” those young men who saw their girlfriends to safety, refused to leave the sides of the wounded, dove in front of young ladies, total strangers, to shield them from the gunfire that Paddock was raining down upon them, and who ran back into the thick of battle to help others—those who one writer recently described as “the people who make America great”—never attended a Black Lives Matter event.

They never tried to shut down speakers with whom they disagree, never shouted, “F**k the Police!” or covered their faces in masks while assaulting those who they accused of being “racists” and “fascists.”

The men and women at that country music concert in Vegas would be neither interested in attending nor welcomed at the Democratic National Convention.

They don’t read The New York Times, The Washington Post, Salon, Slate, or The Huffington Post.

They don’t watch CNN or MSNBC.

And you can take it to the bank that they wouldn’t remotely think of burning the American flag, much less do it.

They would never “take a knee” during the playing of the national anthem.

Much less would they take to the streets and march under the banner of the Hammer and Sickle, the symbol of one of history’s deadliest ideologies.

These are the people who scumbag extraordinaire Stephen Paddock decided he was going to massacre.
