KANSAS CITY STAR ATTACKS A U.S. SENATOR WITH A BLOOD CURSE SCREED!!!
AWESOME TKC readers jumped behind the paywall just to grab a screen cap for posterity.
Check-it . . .
Here's the money line quote that starts the polemic . . .
"No one other than President Donald Trump himself is more responsible for Wednesday’s coup attempt at the U.S. Capitol than one Joshua David Hawley, the 41-year-old junior senator from Missouri, who put out a fundraising appeal while the siege was underway.
"This, Sen. Hawley, is what law-breaking and destruction look like. This is what mobs do. This is not a protest, but a riot. One woman was shot and has died, The Washington Post reported, while lawmakers were sheltering in place.
"No longer can it be asked, as George Will did recently of Hawley, “Has there ever been such a high ratio of ambition to accomplishment?” Hawley’s actions in the last week had such impact that he deserves an impressive share of the blame for the blood that’s been shed."
Brief aside . . .
Over time I've found that taking TKC out of the story in any meaningful way but my snarky, clever and adorable goodness has made this blog better and allowed me to have a lot more fun sharing the news stories I find most interesting . . . Also, it helps readers to understand that I'm just another powerless pleb . . . Very much like the average scumbag TKC reader.
Accordingly, these fighting words from the newspaper aren't editorial journalism -- They're a dangerous provocation amid uncertain times. They don't make me laugh and they might reveal a publication without a perspective on the future.
But I digress . . .
It's also worth noting that tonight Senator Josh Hawley is being torn apart by progressive chat show hosts across all networks.
Here's follow-up coverage for context . . .
A woman shot in the chest by law enforcement inside the U.S. Capitol Wednesday when Trump supporters stormed the complex has died, NBC reported, citing multiple law enforcement officials.
Messenger More Measured But Still Holds Senator Accountable
If you thought a rebuke from his mentor was going to sway U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley, you haven't been paying attention. On Wednesday, in a desperate attempt to lick the boots of his master, President Donald Trump, Hawley had planned to object to the certification of the election in which Americans overwhelmingly chose Joe Biden as the next president and Kamala Harris as the next vice president.
Show-Me Senator Reaction
Sen. (R-Mo.) said that "the violence must end" at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday in a statement that only briefly alluded to his own push to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. "Thank you to the brave law enforcement officials who have put their lives on the line," Hawley said in the statement.
