It apparently wasn’t enough for California representative Ted Lieu that his ideological peers on the left were relentlessly bashing the faithful literally hours after dozens of church members were shot in Sutherland Springs, TX.
It is still hard to wrap one’s head around the fact that as bodies were still being cleared from the First Baptist Church that was horrifically attacked by a psychotic killer on Sunday morning, leftists took to Twitter to mock prayer. That’s right–despite the fact that the 26 victims of the shooting were, in fact, praying as they were killed, in a Christian church, the left still took the opportunity to belittle the prayers of Christians.
Possibly more sickening is the gall that Ted Lieu, a representative from the 33rd District of California, had during Congress’ reverent moment of prayer on Monday.
He actually walked out.
This is the gun-control fanatic’s equivalent of the NFL kneeling protest. It doesn’t matter what he was protesting, the fact that he would actually walk out of a moment of silence honoring the dead is absolutely sickening, disgusting, and disrespectful. There are no two ways about it.
“My colleagues right now are doing a moment of silence in the House of Representatives’ chambers,” he said, according to The Hill. “I respect their right to do that and I myself have participated in many of them. But I can’t do this again, I’ve been to too many moments of silences. In just my short period in Congress, three of the worst mass shootings in U.S. history have occurred. I will not be silent.”
So…you can’t take a moment to pay homage to the dead because you’re upset there are too many dead people?
No. It simply doesn’t work that way.
To compound this disgusting display of irreverence is the fact that he actually used the opportunity to draw attention to himself, further taking away from the mourning for the victims of this tragic shooting.
By the way, here are some examples of the company he keeps:
Here he is with Kathy Griffin, who is known most recently for posing with a severed fake Trump head, dripping with blood, and then taking back her apology for it, whining about how Trump ruined her career.
And here is Lieu with Kevin Spacey, who has also been in the news recently–for being accused of trying to sleep with a 14-year-old boy.
Is it any surprise that this raging leftist lawmaker would go to such great lengths to make this shooting all about his personal political agenda?
It has not even been one week and leftists are utterly incapable of showing any basic human decency.
They are not allowed to express regret at this senseless loss of life at this point since they are utterly incapable of even taking a moment to respect those lost.
Sorry, Democracts. You have officially overplayed your hand, and that’s a massive understatement.
