Paul Ryan Blasts Leftist/Hollywood Critics of 'Thoughts and Prayers'
The left is going full bore on its newest battle: attacking people offering "thoughts and prayers" in a time of tragedy. They see it as a hill to die on not just because they're secular heathens. Because they hate religion. How dare anyone worship God instead of all mighty government. The left's saints are haunting figures like fork-tongued Chuck Schumer. Or Nancy Pelosi, hail holy queen of botox.
In the wake of the Sutherland Springs shooting (see Top 5 Boneheaded Celeb Responses to the Sutherland Springs Shooting and Sutherland Springs Shooter's Classmates Give New Details About His Beliefs), Paul Ryan's thoughts and prayers seemed to piss people off more than usual. Maybe Xanax should be a "yuman right."
The Speaker of the House responded. I believe this is what the kids call "clapping back."
It’s disappointing, it’s sad, and this is what you’ll get from the far secular left. People who do not have faith don’t understand faith, I guess I’d have to say.
The right thing to do is pray during moments like this because you know — prayer works. And I know you believe that and I believe that. And when you hear the secular left doing this thing, no wonder you’ve got so much polarization and disunity in this country when people think like that.
Attacking believers after believers have been killed? Not the wisest choice in timing. Worse, because the problem wasn't the Second Amendment. In fact the man who stopped the Sutherland Springs shooter was a former NRA instructor. Looks like the "NRA has blood on its hands" sacred cow has been cudgeled. Then smoked for good eating. Leave the A1 sauce in the fridge.
No, the problem the left has today is their proclivity for secular, partisan douche-baggery. Which they wave about whenever they feel is right. Usually immediately after an act of clear evil. When, incidentally, people who worship God, not government, are praying the most.
