What is with Democrats lately hijacking somber moments and turning them into shrieking political rallies?
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is the latest to do so, turning a candlelight prayer vigil for victims of the Florida high school massacre into an anti-gun political rally.
Schultz demanded accountability, not by herself, but for “other elected officials.”
This tragedy occurred in her home state.
“We must hold other people’s elected officials accountable,” Wasserman Schultz railed. “We must make sure that they hear us! The people behind me they stand with us on these issues. So we will help other communities elect people who will do the right thing.”
Whatever happened to offering people words of comfort in their darkest hours? Oh, that’s right – Democrats don’t like ‘thoughts and prayers.’

Nothing like preying on the emotions of those who just witnessed a terrible tragedy by exploiting them for your anti-gun agenda.
You have to be mildly sick in the head to seek out applause and chants at a prayer vigil. But then, ‘sick in the head’ is the motto of the Democrat Party these days, isn’t it?

A respectful moment of silence would have worked too, however, Wasserman Schultz declared previously that “thoughts and prayers” are not sufficient. Only passing gun control legislation will be acceptable.
The Florida Democrat’s disrespectful display was reminiscent of Maxine Waters who took the occasion of a man’s funeral to start screeching about impeaching President Trump.
“When I get through with Donald Trump, he’s going to wish he had been impeached!” Waters shouted to mourners at the funeral for comedian Dick Gregory.
“I feel it very deeply — I am so offended by him and I love my people so much I’m not gonna put up with it,” she finished. “I’m gonna say ‘Impeach 45 everyday,’ ‘Impeach 45 everyday,’ ‘Impeach 45 everyday!’”
Now you’ve got Wasserman Schultz starting ‘no more guns’ chants at a candlelight vigil. Democrats are a truly disgraceful bunch.
