Is it acceptable to punch somebody in the nose for insulting your late Mother?
In an overly-long opinion piece inside yesterday’s Wall Street Journal, the writer alleged that leftists hate “Mr. Trump’s vulgarity.” Well, my Mother never used a vulgar word but prayed for those who did. Vulgarity was not a small deal to her! It was simply inexcusable.
But, the insult was suggesting she was a leftist. She was an early supporter of Republican Margaret Chase Smith and NEVER voted for a (spit, spit) Democrat. Not even once, NEVER!
I have often wondered if she would have voted for President Trump. When she rises from the grave in a rage over being called a leftist, I’ll ask her.
Is there a purity test for Republicans? Must we excuse every aberrant behavior to MAGA? Is anything inexcusable?
