Not Funny, Reagan Would Be Proud, Values Voter Summit

Gary Bauer
by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author:   Not Funny - "Comedian" Kathy Griffin has ignited a firestorm of revulsion and anger. She participated in a disgusting photo shoot in which she is featured holding the bloody, severed head of President Donald Trump.

President Trump tweeted that Griffin should be ashamed of herself, adding, "My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!"

The Secret Service is reportedly investigating the incident and Griffin is begging for forgiveness. The only reason she is apologizing is because the left has broken ranks and abandoned her.

For the past 10 years, Griffin has co-hosted CNN's New Year's Eve coverage. The network announced it is "evaluating" her future participation. Anderson Cooper tweeted that he was "appalled" by the photo shoot, adding that it was "clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate."

Chelsea Clinton tweeted, "This is vile and wrong. It is never funny to joke about killing a president."

Donald Trump, Jr., rejected Griffin's apology as "phony," adding that it "would be a lot easier to believe if there wasn't a video of her mocking the response she knew was coming."

Tyler Shields, the so-called "artist" who did the photo shoot, said that he and Griffin "figured out the best image" before hand. Here is Shields' explanation:


"Kathy and I are friends and we worked together before. So when we started doing this shoot, she said, 'I'd love to do something political. I'd love to make a statement.' We kind of figured out what would be the best image to make out of that. . . I can't speak for her, [but] I know she [Griffin] loves to stir the pot."Of all the things Griffin could have done to express her opposition to President Trump she chose a beheading -- something that normalizes the violence of the jihadists rampaging across the Middle East and Africa. This is an image meant to terrorize.

The real story here is that the "Resistance" -- as the left likes to call itself -- was erasing the boundaries of acceptable behavior well before the election and it has continued doing so ever since. The left feels justified in terrorizing conservatives.

There are constant suggestions that the administration is illegitimate, that the president colluded with Russia to steal the election.

White House employees have been accosted in public.

There is a constant drumbeat suggesting that the president and his supporter are Nazis. Comparisons to Hitler are routine.

There were physical attacks on Trump supporters before the election and after.

This is the atmosphere of hate the left is creating.

Not Just Trump - Don't fool yourself into thinking that Trump is the only one the left hates. "President Cruz" or "President Rubio" would also be facing the left's wrath. In fact, anyone who is committed to resisting the left's "fundamental transformation of America" will earn their hatred.

For example, most people would say that Paul Ryan is a very nice and likeable person. But dozens of New Jersey eighth graders on a recent trip to Washington, D.C., refused to have their picture taken with Speaker Ryan.

The left claims to be all about diversity and tolerance. But it has zero respect for diversity of opinion and it can't even be civil about it!

Reagan Would Be Proud - The United States conducted a successful test of our missile defense system yesterday. A mock ICBM was fired from the Marshall Islands and was intercepted by another missile from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. We hit a bullet with a bullet from a distances of 5,000 miles.

Vice Admiral Jim Syring said, "This system is vitally important to the defense of our homeland, and this test demonstrates that we have a capable, credible deterrent against a very real threat." Ronald Reagan would be proud.

We are still a long away from having a reliable missile shield like Reagan envisioned. According to Reuters, this was only the ninth successful test out of 17 attempts since 1999, and we are clearly in a race with rogue regimes like Iran and North Korea to prevent the unthinkable from happening -- hundreds of thousands of Americans dying in an attack against a major city.

But never forget this fact: If the left had prevailed since the Reagan years, we would be utterly defenseless today.

The left has resisted missile defense funding every step of the way. Progressives will give your money away to other countries to pay for climate change. They will spend billions on boondoggles. But they have tried every tactic to prevent us from being able to defend the American people from enemy missiles.

Chag Sameach - Last night, our Jewish brothers and sisters began celebrating Shavuot, which commemorates the day God gave Moses the Ten Commandments. To our Jewish friends, we wish you a joyous Shavuot!

Speaking of the Ten Commandments, one of them is translated simply, "You shall not murder." That is fairly well understood throughout Judeo-Christian civilization. Sadly, there seems to be little respect for innocent life in many parts of the Islamic world, which is producing death-worshipping jihadists.

This morning, a massive car bomb ripped through Kabul, Afghanistan, "at the height of the Wednesday morning rush hour." At least 80 people are dead and 450 are wounded. This marks the third major terror attack since the Islamic holy month of Ramadan began Friday.

Do Presbyterians set off bombs at Easter? Do Catholics celebrate Christmas with mass murder? Do Jews blow themselves up on Yom Kippur? Of course not.

Unfortunately, the "religion of peace" has a serious problem with violence. For the jihadists of Al Qaeda, the Taliban, Hamas, Hezbollah, Boko Haram, Al Shabaab, Islamic Jihad and the Islamic State, who are slaughtering innocent people in the name of Allah, it is all about religion.

Values Voter Summit - Join me in our nation's capital October 13th - 15th for the 2017 Values Voter Summit!

Vice President Mike Pence said, "The Values Voter Summit [is] the greatest gathering of conservative pro-family Americans in the nation." And he is absolutely right!

That is why American Values, my non-profit public policy organization, has been a proud sponsor of the Summit every year.

This year's Summit features an incredible lineup of top government officials, opinion makers and faith leaders. There will be educational and informative breakout sessions, as well as events honoring those who have made significant contributions to the conservative movement.

Discounts for early registration end TODAY. So please register now.
