Conservatives Don’t Get to Mourn

Conservatives Don’t Get to Mourn, by Karol Markowicz.

In the aftermath of terrible events, there are calls for unity. For Republicans, it’s always except you.

CNN’s Jim Acosta caught in the act

After every horrible mass shooting, when we should be mourning together, looking for solutions to stop future attacks, consoling the families of the victims, there’s an immediate rush to make sure conservatives know they do not belong to that wider American community feeling the pain.

Worse, there’s a constant allusion to the fact that those on the right are responsible for the slaughter. Republicans spend the time following these attacks not in mourning like they should be but beating back the sickening idea that they inspired the shooter. …

The message is always: You’re not part of this. We’re upset and we’re angry. You don’t have a right to be. …

Those on the left purposely pushing their political agenda in moments of national grief should be held accountable. Their divisiveness stops us from healing after tragedies. Political shots shouldn’t be worth it.

Or perhaps violence in the name of the leftist agenda is just fine? I think that’s it. …

You want hate? You spend two years calling a guy Hitler, a racist, a traitor, and insane — then you blame him for violence cuz.. of nicknames?
