So, the Democrats have their priorities.
While Democrats spent the night jabbering about abortion and $15 minimum wage and climate change, jihadists stormed a church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray in Normandy, France, and proceeded to behead an 86-year-old priest while shouting “Jesus Lives!”
Just joking. They were yelling “Allahu Akhbar.” But you guessed that already.
This is the fifth jihadist attack in Europe in 11 days.
So, how many times did Democrats mention ISIS last night and yesterday?
That’s right – 61 speakers, zero mentions of ISIS. But the Democrats did find time to put an illegal immigrant on stage, as well as an irritating comedic actress who uses her spare time auctioning sanitary napkins. They found time to take down “offensive” Mississippi state flags and wave Palestinian ones on the floor of the convention. They found time for another actress who claimed that the “border crossed” her family, and a video from J.J. Abrams about that Queen of Mystery and Light, Hillary Clinton.
The Democrats know their priorities. And defeating ISIS isn’t one of them. They’re too busy cheering lustily for a 74-year-old loonbag preaching discredited evils responsible for the murder of 100 million people in the 20th century to worry about another evil murdering priests in Normandy, fireworks-watchers in Nice, gay nightclub-goers in Orlando, and children in Jerusalem.
Sure, it was just Night One of the convention. But the disconnect on issues says volumes: Republicans worry about terrorism and crime, Democrats worry about whether men who think they’re women can go pee-pee next to the ladies.
Last week, the media complained that Donald Trump’s Republican National Convention speech was too “dark.” Perhaps it was “dark” because the Democrats have created a rather dark world for us to occupy, even as they blindly refuse to acknowledge it.
