A former volunteer for both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama drew swift condemnation and was terminated from his job after mocking Carryn Owens, the widow of a fallen Navy SEAL who was honored by Pres. Trump during his congressional address Tuesday night.
Dan Grilo made the remark on Twitter after Trump paid tribute to the Owens. While recognized by almost everyone - Republican, Democrat and Independent - as the most powerful moment of the night, Grilo, evidently, was not impressed, tweeting to an LA Times reporter, "Sorry, Owens' wife, you're not helping yourself or your husband's memory by standing there and clapping like an idiot. Trump just used you."
This is the jaded and caustic rhetoric of the Progressive Left, the people that were in power for eight years during the Obama Administration, and who would have still been in power had Hillary Clinton won the 2016 General Election. They are the cretins waging violence in the street protests and who are disrupting town hall meetings.
No doubt, this self-centered indignant slob will decry that he is a "victim" of political persecution. Perhaps he will even end up on Rachel Maddow's loser MSNBC show or the pathetic YouTube channel anchored by Keith Olbermann, another whiney mouthpiece for the caustic Left.
But, the fact of the matter is this. Grilo attacked a grieving widow and did so because of his politics. Any political ideology that thinks that conduct is legitimate is a political ideology that our nation can do well without. He defines the Progressive Left and why we need to expunge them from mainstream politics.
