Media Will Freak When They See GOP Candidate & Vet Literally Grab Ax During Rally
It’s more than a little ironic that the liberal media likes to brand conservatives and Trump supporters as violent, when it’s so very often Democrats and liberals who are the ones inciting violence themselves.
It’s readily apparent that the whole “when they go low, we go high” thing is a blatant farce.
You know, never mind that Trump has repeatedly disavowed violence. Why let facts get in the way of misleading propaganda?
That media hypocrisy was again on full display when Republican Arizona senator candidate Martha McSally dared to brandish an ax during a campaign rally on Sunday.
I mean, look at this title from NBC News: “McSally wields real ax on stage in Arizona – to cut taxes, not her opponent.”
Obviously, McSally wasn’t going to go Jason Voorhees on her opponent, Kyrsten Sinema. But that’s not going to stop the liberal media from insinuating she’s somehow a violent person.
(Full disclosure, one of the gentlemen on stage with McSally in the NBC News photo is Liftable Media chairman Floyd Brown.)
NBC News even ran a very misleading quote from McSally.
“I like this,” McSally said of her “tax ax.” “Remember, I’m a warrior.” That’s copied verbatim from NBC News. That actual quote is a little different.
McSally wielding “tax ax”–>“I like the ax, man. In case I need to use it! No, I’m just kidding. I’m a warrior! I like weapons. All right, that’s going to end up on the evening news. Right, Vaughn? & it’ll be on MSNBC in about 15 seconds…don’t run, don’t run! I’ll protect you.” pic.twitter.com/2M1AOdwJWa

“I like the ax, man. In case I need to use it!” McSally joked. “No I’m just kidding. I’m a warrior! I like weapons. All right, that’s going to end up on the evening news.”
The entire exchange was in jest, yet the liberal media ran it like McSally was an unhinged horror movie villain.
In truth, McSally’s ax does represent one of the most important tenets that the Arizona Senate candidate is campaigning on. Whereas many liberals and Democrats push for things like “Medicare for all,” which would be a massive strain on the American taxpayer, McSally is arguing for lower taxes.
How can anyone be upset about giving less of their hard-earned money to the government?
It can’t be stressed enough that going out and voting in the midterm elections is of the utmost importance, especially in 2018. Just look at the difference in rhetoric between McSally and Sinema.
McSally, even while joking, is a warrior and embraces it. I will take that any day over Sinema’s anti-military, anti-police gibberish.
Again folks, go out and vote tomorrow. We need warriors in Congress, not anti-American nonsense.
