In the aftermath of the worst mass shooting in American history, a political and cultural war is just beginning. Before the victims have even been laid to rest, the radical Left is trying use the tragedy to push for gun control legislation.
This happens after every mass shooting, at least the ones that occur outside of cities like Detroit and Chicago every week, and they’re only just getting started. While many left-wing politicians have taken to social media to signal their supposed moral superiority and desire to diminish our gun rights, one conservative commentator firing back.
As reported at the Daily Mail, after witnessing a deluge of left-wing concern-trolling and hand-wringing in the aftermath of the shooting, Sean Hannity took to the airwaves to lambast the Left’s disgusting politicization of the tragedy.
Hannity labeled their comments “despicable”, “sick” and “beyond the pale” on Monday night during his Fox News program.
“Democrats have rushed to politicize this tragedy in an absolutely despicable display. Some of these victims are still in the hospital clinging to life. We still don’t have all the facts. Bodies weren’t even in the morgue yet. Parents were at hospitals with their kids hanging on to life. None of this mattered to the left in this country.”
“Their impulse to politicize this tragedy as they do other tragedies is beyond the pale they’re using this tragedy. Why? To score cheap political points and push a gun control agenda,” he added.
Hannity specifically targeted Hillary Clinton, who only hours after the attack took to Twitter to blame the NRA and call for “putting politics aside.”
“Our grief isn’t enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again,” Clinton tweeted.
While Clinton’s comments were pathetic, another Democrat went a step further, saying that Republicans are complicit in the killings if they refuse to pass gun control legislation in response.
Rep. Mike Thompson of California, who chairs the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, tweeted: “If GOP Congress does nothing, its Leadership is complicit. We must establish a Select Committee on Gun Violence. #EndGunViolence.”
Thompson is clearly a clown trying desperately to increase his stock on the back of still warm bodies, as are all the other leftists clamoring to restrict our rights. Hannity is absolutely right that the Left has no shame, but don’t expect them to stop using this or any other tragedy to push their radical agenda.
