To wit: Now, even dogs are on the Democrat hate list if they had anything at all to do with making the Trumpster look good. Even if those dogs "work" for the U.S. military.
As Breitbart News noted Wednesday, Leftists have cranked out their outrage machines over several memes posted online of the president praising the German Shepard used by U.S. Special Operations forces in their hunt for the late leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
In particular, Leftists were triggered by a photoshopped image of President Trump "placing" a Medal of Honor ribbon around the hero pooch that chased the coward al-Baghdadi into a tunnel, where he detonated a suicide vest he was wearing, killing himself and three of his children he planned to use as human shields.
For his part, the president tweeted out the image, obviously pleased with it.
“AMERICAN HERO” the president wrote in his tweet.
The image, which was reportedly created by someone over at the Daily Wire, drew lots of outrage and even prompted a few idiots to "fact-check" the image, which was obviously manufactured.
“I’ve requested details from the @WhiteHouse on this photo. There was no such canine event on today’s @POTUS schedule but there is a Medal of Honor ceremony set here for later today for an active duty Green Beret,” Voice of America White House bureau chief Steve Herman wrote.
Later, he wrote, “‘It’s photoshopped,’ acknowledges a @WhiteHouse official. The dog is not here at the @WhiteHouse — yet.”
Then, of course, we get the perpetually triggered adults who apparently never graduated from junior high school.
And triggered. And triggered. And triggered. (Related: Trump Derangement Syndrome spikes as Leftists in the Pravda media fantasize about POTUS Trump beating up Melania.)
So now, no one can photoshop anything good about President Trump – encouraging, pro-America, honoring humans and creatures who deserve to be honored – without having it tainted by Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Perfect. Now tell us that this president isn’t the most persecuted in the history of the republic.
Can you imagine if social media was around when we won our independence? How many founders would have been “doxxed?” How many boneheads, basement dwellers, slapstick idiots, and certified lunatics would have taken George Washington to task for a well-meaning meme?
That working journalists would ‘fact check’ this obvious meme – pooh pooh it, denigrate it, despise it, simply because they don’t like the president, says more about their pettiness and problematic mental state than it would ever say about Trump.
Can’t we even have a single moment in the Trump presidency where he is universally praised for doing a very good thing – giving our military the tools it needed to track down a murderous scumbag who oversaw the slaughter of scores of other human beings simply because they believed in a different god?
No, we can’t. Because we’ve officially reached a point in our history where fictitious but celebratory pictures are over-scrutinized simply because the president is in them.
No matter the message of "good" intended by the picture itself.
I weep for our future. If we can’t find it in ourselves to take one victory lap together when our country deserves to just because of the guy in the Oval Office, then we can’t fix this political chasm that exists between us.
