He’s at it again, poking his finger in the eye of the elite media and secularists everywhere. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) had the audacity to tweet that it’s a bad idea to use the “f-word.” A call for decency – how dare him! This was his specific statement that has infuriated so many: “Sign of the times . . . the F word is now routinely used in news stories, tweets, etc. It’s not even F*** anymore. Who made that decision?”
Many in the mainstream media have suggested that this tweet was meant to criticize a survivor of the Capital Gazette shooting, Selene San Felice, who went on CNN claiming that she “couldn’t give a f*** about the offer of prayers, if there’s nothing else.”
Never mind, there is zero evidence that this was the object of Rubio’s ire, or that he even saw the interview. The odds of Rubio being a regular CNN viewer aren’t too high, actually.
But never one to let facts or research get in the way of a good story, technology outlet Mashable published an article claiming that Rubio “is more concerned about a naughty word used in a news report” than he is about the most recent mass shooting. The author of the article went on to list seven things Rubio should be more concerned about than mainstream profanity.
Other media outlets, such as Salon, piled on, running the story, and more.
Actually, it is possible to be upset about the cultural demise of America and mass shootings at the same time. Rubio has, after all, proposed real legislation to reduce mass shootings. But to get into the facts would only ruin a good story for Salon and others.
This attack on Sen. Rubio is nothing new. He has been on a mission for God for some time now. He continues to tweet daily Bible verses, such as this one a few weeks ago: “The LORD is my strength and my shield, in whom my heart trusts. I am helped, so my heart rejoices; with my song I praise him” (Psalm 28:7).
So there you have it. Sen. Rubio is for God and against public displays of profanity. You might as well get used to it, because he isn’t going anywhere. Why? Because Marco Rubio is clearly on a mission from God.
