Most Americans are firmly against victim-blaming, but Nancy Pelosi’s daughter Christine is fine with it as long as the victim in question is Rand Paul.  As you have probably heard, Paul tested positive for the Wuhan flu.  He took the test as a precautionary measure.  As he waited for the results, he went about his normal life, during which time he exposed other people including Senator Mitt Romney. 

Sen. Romney is asymptomatic, but he is quarantining himself for 2 weeks, because his wife Ann has multiple sclerosis.  In response to a tweet about Romney’s situation, Christine Pelosi – Democrat Nancy Pelosi’s daughter – wrote, “Rand Paul’s neighbor was right.”

As you recall, the Kentucky Senator was mowing his lawn, while wearing noise canceling headphones, when his neighbor attacked him from behind.  The attack landed him in the emergency room with 6 broken ribs (including 3 displaced fractures), bruises to his lungs, and a pleural effusion.   He actually lost a part of his lung because of the attack, making his Wuhan flu diagnosis more troubling.

Pelosi’s tweet is “victim blaming,” but it goes further than that. It actually rationalizes the violence.

This is the new normal for leftists. They’ve embraced violence to a degree most believed was impossible in modern society. You saw it clearly when they thwarted the free speech of conservative speakers on college campuses (such as at Berkeley and numerous other universities); in the Occupy Wall Street attitudes toward corporations; in the Black Lives Matter assault against police, and among anti-Zionist movements that try to remove Jews from Left wing parades and attempts to delegitimize Israel.

Now you can just see it on Twitter.  This is a shame, and people of all political stripes should be united as a nation now against the global pandemic.
