I have 3 comments to make about the special election in Montana yesterday:
1) Greg Gianforte did a shameful thing by physically accosting the reporter from Guardian. There is no excuse for behavior like that. He has apologized and he is facing charges, both of which are appropriate. (My mom used to tell me “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me.” Gianforte needs to take that to heart when dealing with obnoxious reporters and just ignore them!)
2) I know that a lot of ballots were cast before election day, but I still believe that the Republican would have won in spite of the incident the day before the election, because the people in Montana, as indeed in most of America, realize that the Democrats are pushing an agenda of socialism, financial ruin, dependency, division and class warfare in this country and they don’t want any part of it.
3) The action of Gianforte is being blamed by the media and multiple Democrats on President Trump, stating that those actions were a direct result of his words against the media. If that is true, then the riots and beatings on our city streets, burning of buildings and destruction of property, the killing of police officers while sitting in their cars or pumping gas in their car or walking on the street are a direct result of words like “Continue the resistance, join the resistance, take it to the streets, cops are pigs” which are said by Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Al Shapton and so many more, including “reporters” and commentators in the media, Sorry, folks, you just can’t have it both ways. America woke up and we’re not buying it any more.
