Remember when our hand-wringing friends in the legacy media as well as in the Democratic Party faulted Republican presidential candidates for not condemning a man who booed a gay solider? Well, now we have someone booing a U.S. Senator and calling him “the devil.” By Democratic logic then, every Democratic present at this event must condemn the boor lest they be considered to support his antics:
Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) raised eyebrows Monday evening when he was unceremoniously booed during an appearance at the Kennedy Center’s D.C. CAP-ital Stars Gala.
The Senator raised eyebrows!?!? Interesting way to put it. “Midway through the Kennedy Center event to benefit the D.C. College Access Program,” Jenny Rogers reports, Blunt
. . . was honored by the board for his support of education in the Senate. While Blunt was being introduced, an audience member shouted, “Blunt is the devil.” A tense moment passed without comment before the ceremony continued. As Blunt took the stage, the heckler loudly booed.
Look, there are boors are both sides of the political aisle. No Democrat needs distinguish himself for this individual’s antic unless said partisan holds to the notion that Republicans must “differentiate themselves” from the angry rhetoric of the extremists on the right side of the political aisle.
