From The Annals of Conservatives Politicizing Tragedy

They can't help themselves.

From Think Progress:
Trump Suggests Obama Is Purposely Allowing Muslims To Commit Terrorist Acts In The United States
BY JUDD LEGUM JUN 13, 2016 8:53 AM

This morning on Fox & Friends, Donald Trump not so subtly returned to the subject that launched his political career — outrageous conspiracy theories about Barack Obama.

Trump said there were two possible reasons the gun massacre took place in Orlando. The first possibility was that Obama is “not tough” and “not smart” and therefore incapable of stopping terrorist attacks.

The other scenario, according to Trump, is that Obama is fully capable of stopping terrorist attacks but “has something else in mind.” In other words, Obama is purposefully allowing terrorists to kill people in the United States to pursue a hidden agenda.
This is who they are.

Eh? It's a known FACT in Trumpetopia that if you are bully and call someone a name, why then, they'll eat out of your hand, and do everything you want. Isn't that how Trump leads his life?

The idiocy is beyond the pale, but I read somewhere yesterday that Fox was out ahead of Trump on this meme. Tucker Carlson said something similar.

It is so fugly and, of course, just makes the situation worse by orders of magnitude. But what does the 1% care? If we got to War again, it's all pure profit for them.

I'll tell you who is allowing Muslims to commit terrorist acts in the United States! The Republican Party and the NRA. They've probably already sent flowers and a thank you card to Omar's family.

Republicans will always defend the right of terrorists to kill, and will aid and abet them by selling them weapons. Then when random loser # 18295-B attacks the soft targets (never their fellow religious conservatives or authoritarian allies), they weep crocodile tears while gleefully attacking Obama for the results of their misguided policies.

ISIS and the NRA are natural political allies.

Trump's version of Oceania's motto--

Divisiveness is unity.
Invective is diplomacy.
Misinformation is truth.

God and republicans always have a way to condemn others and exempt themselves in purity.
If you are republican, This belongs to you……………….

They sure do get privately wealthy doing the republican God’s work. Don’t they.

Creating sinners is pretty good work and pays well if you can get it.

The GOP adopted this business model some time ago. just after the Pet Rock economic bubble collapse.

Good afternoon, Mr. Glass.

Ooh! Ooh! A game! Can I play too?

"Is President Obama going to finally mention the words radical CONSERVATIVE terrorism? If he doesn't he should immediately resign in disgrace!"

"When will the moderate CONSERVATIVES denounce the extremists in their ranks?"

"We need to ban CONSERVATIVES from entering this country, just until we figure this thing out."

After all, if the shooter was after homosexuals, it ain't liberals equating homosexuality with bestiality...or saying that legalizing their marriages would incur God's wrath and whatnot.

So if we're going to overreact, let's at least be consistent about it.

Be seeing you.

This has to be a tough one for Republicans.

One of their few remaining electoral hopes is returning to the days between 2002 and 2006 when the Bush administration and "liberal" media convinced just enough people that every neighborhood in America held a terrorist sleeper cell and "24" was a documentary.

But the "terrorist" struck a place that, should Trump get elected, most of his supporters wouldn't mind spending a late Saturday night waiting outside of looking for a departing lone patron that strays too far outside the parking lot lights.....just like the good "q###r stomping" old days ca. 1986.

I wish I could say that Falwell and Robertson were relics of the past.
