Presidents Post - RINO Lincoln Chafee boycotts Political Commentary ^ | 01/14/11 | donjuanluis

Less than ten days into the New Year, a senseless act of violence was perpetrated on our Republic by a violent and evil man. Our form of government is self-rule through elected representatives. When any representative is fulfilling their public duty, it is as if we are all there. The shooting in Tucson, Arizona was an attack on the government of this great Republic, and therefore was an attack on all of us. More troubling than the shooting is the aftermath of recriminations that has happened this past week by the Progressive Media and Progressive Democrat Politicians. Using this event for their own political ends is not shocking nor surprising. Neither was the eventual collusion of Republicans-In-Name-Only.

Newly elected Governor of Rhode Island, former Repub but always a RINO, Lincoln Chafee, has taken it upon himself to boycott political commentary shows and personalities that use violent euphimisms. Excerpt of his brilliant statement []:

The advertisers should shut them down.
Violence in our political rhetoric is nothing new to us. It is common, it is useful, and it is protected. Here is a short historical study on Violence in Political Speech that our Founders enshrined in our Constitution and promised to protect by their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor.

To throw away our rights of communication in the most passionate and furious ways is to declare our experiment in self-governance a failure. We will not be terrorized by violence into giving up our dearest rights to passionately portray violence in political discourse, in order that unhinged evil may not be induced to further evil. Evil will always exist, that is why our system of justice exists. We punish those that do evil, and we reward those that do good.

I end with this call to congress from our sacred Scripture.

Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish justice in the gate. Amos 5.15 NASB

Happy Hunting!
