Democrats and Republicans Are Not Morally Equivalent
Ron Ross
June 30, 2017

Democrats bring it up only when they’re looking for cover.

The recent attempted mass assassination of Republican congressmen and its aftermath reveals much about differences between Democrats and Republicans. It’s a difference that Democrats are doing their best to pretend does not exist.

One of the ways Democrats are attempting to escape any responsibility for the shooter’s motives is by using one of their favorite and most insidious subterfuges — “moral equivalence.” Democrats are doing their level best to convince everyone that Democrats and Republicans are equally responsible for the poisonous atmosphere currently rampant in our culture.

The event ought to be an enormous indictment of the Democrat party and the left. There is what should be an obvious and blatant difference between the two parties.

It simply would not occur to a Republican to make a Democrat president symbolically an assassinated Julius Caesar, as they have been doing with their Shakespeare in the Park presentation in New York City this spring. We simply don’t think that way. There isn’t that much hate in our hearts. Any haters in the Republican Party are outliers. The haters on the left are mainstream.

Democrats are doing their best to gloss over and minimize the shooter’s political affiliations and the similarity of his attitudes and opinions with those of the Democrat party. The shooter’s beliefs were carbon copies of those of Democrat politicians. Democrats want us to believe that fact is irrelevant. Is it irrelevant that he specifically targeted Republican politicians? When in history has any shooter ever targeted Democrat politicians specifically because of their party affiliation? The attitude of Democrats reminds me of what George W. Bush said about al Qaeda, “They don’t oppose our policies, they oppose our existence.”

Following the shooting, the clueless FBI pretended not to know what the shooter’s motives were. As John McEnroe would say, “You can’t be serious!” Were they trying to be funny? Does the FBI not realize how ridiculous they sound? Has political correctness fried their brains? As they might say in the red states, “Don’t pee in my face and tell me it’s raining.”

There’s a whole lot of denial going on. They have sown the wind, but they deny responsibility for the whirlwind.

“Moral equivalence” is one of the left’s personality disorders. It is, for example, why liberals are uncomfortable with the idea of “American exceptionalism.” They would like us to believe that no one country is better than another or that no one religion is better than another. It is why they hold Israel and Palestine equally responsible for the murder and terrorism in that region.

The left does not want to take sides in any conflict. They do not like facing the existence of evil. Their inability to face that reality is part of their utopian mindset. They’re typically more sympathetic with the killer than the victim, more sympathetic with the law breakers than the law enforcers.

For Democrats, any incident involving guns is a terrible thing to waste. Whenever guns are involved, they exploit it for all it’s worth. Their tiresome obsession with that issue demonstrates their empty bag of issues. Democrats have no new issues or ideas. They have no young leadership. The party is worn out intellectually and demographically.

Democrats actually believe that an abortion is something positive. Unrestricted abortion is the political issue they are most passionate about. They believe that an abortion is as desirable, or even more desirable, than a live birth. The cold heartedness with which they view the issue is chilling.

Liberals know for certain that Donald Trump is a racist and bigot. How do they know that? Because he wants to protect our borders and enforce existing immigration laws. In order to categorize Trump as a hater they have to redefine and corrupt the meaning of hate. In their minds wanting to secure the borders and enforce existing immigration laws means he has hatred in his heart.

Another example occurred during the 2008 campaign against “Prop 8” in California. That proposition was about adding to the state’s constitution the following, “Only a marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.” The most frequently seen bumper sticker seen at the time was “8 is Hate.” In other words, Democrats in California believed that you had to be a bigot to in favor of keeping the definition of marriage what it has been for hundreds of thousands of years. Prop 8 passed but was subsequently voided by the courts.

The good news for Republicans is that the Democrats’ worn out bag of tricks and duplicity aren’t working like they used to. There’s a huge difference between how the two parties behave and how they see the world, and most of the country agrees with the Republican version, at least as evidenced by the November and other recent elections.

Ahem. Far more people did NOT vote for Repubs than voted for them in the last election.. which, to be fair, is also true of Dems.

I disagree with your opening declaration and the arguments too.

I don't remember you making a song and dance and dance about Dem Gaby Giffords' shooting proving partisan violence against Dems? Nor do i remember Repubs ever being generous or truthful enough to admit half of the blame lies on their side. You just "don't think like that" do you?

Both sides are to blame.. but at least one side admits it. A step in the right direction. Your wish to terminate the oppositiin.. like your leader's... shows just who you are.

One side admits it? Constant state of denial, anyone?
