Hillary Clinton tweeted her hatred of Republicans and “their mouthpiece” on Saturday, which is nothing new, but this time she is blaming them for acts of political violence in our country. She linked her tweet to an LA Times article on the deranged nutjob that broke into Pelosi’s home in San Francisco and attacked Paul Pelosi with a hammer.
The Republican Party and its mouthpieces now routinely spread hate and deranged conspiracy theories. It is shocking, but not surprising, that violence results. As citizens, we must hold them accountable for their words and their subsequent actions.

Elon Musk responded to the tweet this morning with an interesting observation.
There is little chance that there could be more to this story than meets the eye. https://t.co/HCaF5DrRjP

Make no mistake about it—the narrative being delivered today by the media, especially on Sunday morning political shows, is that political violence is fueled by heated rhetoric or election denial by Republicans. As you know, the Democrats and the people on their side are innocent and have nothing to do with anything bad happening. This is sarcasm, my friends, because since the horrific attack on Paul Pelosi, the media has once again lost its mind. Two prime examples are Chuck Todd on meet the Press and Margaret Brennan face the nation,
Chuck Todd drilled down governor Chris Sununu (R-NH) for most of the interview on January 6 and poll denials on the ballot for the midterm elections. Republican Don Bolduc is challenging incumbent Senator Maggie Hassan. Bolduc was a candidate who can be described as an election denial during the GOP primary. Then, once he received the nomination and began his general election campaign, he announced that he had done a lot of research and no longer denied the validity of the 2020 presidential election. Their position now is that there were irregularities but not enough to change the outcome of the election.
The race in New Hampshire between Hassan and Bolduc is now essentially a toss-up, Hassan is running scared, although he is considered one of the weakest Democrats since the start of his campaign for re-election.
Governor Sununu pushes Chuck Todd back and tells him to have Chuck Schumer on his show and asks him why he put so much money behind Bolduc’s campaign if Democrats are now worried about election denials. Democrats spent millions of dollars on candidates in the GOP primaries, thinking they could easily beat them on more establishment-friendly GOP candidates in November. Democrats got what they wanted and now they complain because “the denial of the election” is likely to win many of their races.
Sununu also pointed out that Chuck Todd is living in a bubble if he thinks January 6 is a top concern for voters. He said voters are not thinking about 2020, a misconception that Democrats believe. Democrats are running on abortion and January 6th and Republicans are running on issues that matter in the lives of voters – inflation, crime, an open southern border, energy prices, high grocery prices, public schools and the fentanyl crisis. Crisis after crisis has followed Joe Biden’s disastrous agenda. Voters are bored and ready for change.
Todd asks Sununu if political ads against Nancy Pelosi should be removed after the attack on her husband. Sunnu defended her but said there was no need for political advertisements inciting violence. I can certainly sound off here but I think it’s an overabundance. Advertisements against Nancy Pelosi have been a part of political campaigns as she has been Speaker of the House both times. It is part of a left-wing movement to denounce Republicans as those inciting violence. People on both sides have had their share of bad behavior and used language that could seem to incite violence, if everyone is honest.
The January 6 riots were wrong, just as the riots that destroyed areas of American cities during the Summer of Love in 2020 by BLM activists and Antifa were wrong. Political protest is fine but once there is an incident of violence, there is a riot. Its as simple as that. Riots are wrong.
Rap Tom Emmer (R-MN) was asked by Margaret Brennan almost uninjured face the nation Why did he use a gun in a tweet he posted? Emmer was saying that he exercised his Second Amendment rights and did some target practice with the rifle. The hashtag at the end of the tweet was #FirePelosi. Brennan questioned him why he posted the tweet. He said it was not a campaign ad, yet he treated it as it was. The truth is, there are plenty of tweets from gun owners posting pictures of themselves doing target practice or talking about guns. The hashtag #FirePelosi is often used by conservatives.
Hillary Clinton has done her part to create political unrest. He denied the results of the 2020 election in speeches and said Trump was an illegitimate president. He is the one who turned the whole Russia, Russia, Russia trope, pitted Americans against the incumbent president through three years of political lies as he won the election. He is the one who began the original use of the expression “huge right-wing conspiracy” in 1995 during Bill Clinton’s presidency. Democrats always accuse Republicans of doing what they are doing.

There are too many flaws to go around. Democrats are pouring it all on Republicans at the moment, out of desperation. They are losing the midterm election and they know a Republican will likely take the White House in 2024. They are using Paul Pelosi’s attack as a distraction. It will not work. The red wave is coming and it’s going to be great.
