Civility: GOP Congresswoman Called a “FASCIST PIG” While Out Shopping
Another day, another example of why leftists in this country are truly despicable people who don’t have the slightest respect for the basic humanity of their political rivals. It’s really amazing, because if you take a look at what actually happens out there, it’s completely the opposite of what you hear in the news. Every other day, you read some lefty blogger talking about how the Nazis of the right are dehumanizing their opponents through memes, speeches, and other forms of political warfare. But every time – almost without exception – you hear about a violent confrontation, it’s a left-on-right incident.
Of course, you have to dig very deep to find these confrontations because the media does everything possible to ignore them altogether. Meanwhile, if a drawing of a pig finds itself within a fifty mile radius of a mosque, it requires a six-day-long investigation from The New York Times.
Speaking of pigs, that brings us to our story. Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) made a name for herself during the impeachment hearings of President Trump as she calmly but determinedly made Adam Schiff look like a lying tyrant from her position on the dais. Those exchanges made her a hero to many of Trump’s supporters, but they made her a villain to the TDS-sufferers of the world.
And sadly, there are plenty of those. Apparently one of them was lurking in the parking lot this week while Stefanik and her husband were out grocery shopping.
“It is truly sad that the radical Far-Left cannot see beyond their vicious hate,” Stefanik tweeted on Saturday. “My husband and I went grocery shopping this morning before district events and enjoyed chatting with constituents throughout the store. This vile anonymous note was left on our car.”
“As an elected official, I understand that respectful & passionate policy disagreements are foundational to our democracy. But this note is just sad hatred. We are praying for the author,” she wrote. “This hateful rhetoric should be publicly condemned by my opponent immediately.”
What world are you living in where you think this is an appropriate thing to write and slap on the windshield of someone’s car? Imagine the outrage that would come bursting forth from the Democrats if someone had done this to Ilhan Omar or Rashida Tlaib.
But you notice how Stefanik called on her opponent, Tedra Cobb, to denounce the note? Well, this is the best Cobb could do:
“@EliseStefanik you’re right, that type of discourse is damaging and wrong,” she tweeted. “I think it’s time you joined me in pledging not to name call in this campaign. I’d love to work with you to set a better example for #NY21.”
She wrote this because Stefanik has taken to calling Cobb “Taxin’ Tedra” during the campaign. Now, far be it from us to downplay the emotional strife Cobb has gone through due to this awful, vile slur, but we’re pretty sure she’ll get over it. To compare “Taxin’ Tedra” to “FASCIST PIG”? That’s quite the stretch.
We’re used to Democrats playing in the world of double standards, but c’mon.
