The latest example of “Everything Trump Does Is an OUTRAGE!” involves the criticism of his weekend pardons of two Army veterans accused of war crimes. Their defenders say they were defending themselves on the battlefield (one was charged with war crimes for killing an alleged Taliban bomb maker.)
At the link, Matt Margolis of PJ Media offers some more details, along with a few examples of people who got pardons from Barack Obama that liberals didn’t get OUTRAGED over in the least.
Speaking of Barack Obama, even President “Fundamentally Transform America” is worried that the current pack of Democratic President candidates are so far-left that they’re unelectable. At a meeting of the Democracy Alliance in DC, Obama said average Americans want to see things improved, they don’t want revolutionaries vowing to tear down the whole system and rebuild it.
Now, I don’t know if Obama really is alarmed by how far off the leftward deep end his party has dived, or if he wishes they’d just move slower or keep their traps shut about their real intentions until they actually get into power. But one thing that’s undeniable is that he does know how to win a national election. So, how did the “progressives” in his party receive his wise advice?
If you guessed that they mocked him, claimed he didn’t know what he was talking about, and pressed the gas pedal even harder toward the leftward cliff, then you win a toy unicorn! They even created a mocking hashtag (the only thing most of them have ever created) of #TooFarLeft, attached to tweets like “I’m #TooFarLeft because I oppose injustice, inequality and violence!”
No, you’re #TooFarLeft because you support using violence to silence anyone who disagrees with your crazy plans to destroy the economy with open borders and unlimited government spending.
Yeah, yeah, I know: I’m #TooFarRight because I read what you actually say and quote you accurately.
