Brad Parscale — Are You Going to Own It?

Donald Trump’s campaign manager – Turning chaos into a catalyst for change

Published

on

Fort Lauderdale – This past Sunday, Brad Parscale, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, was seen on SWAT dash cam footage being tackled and arrested by police. Parscale, barefoot and struggling with slurred speech and holding a beer, was confronted by police after his wife, Candice Parscale, had a conversation with the 911 dispatch about his condition and the possibility that he had a firearm during their argument. She alleged that he’d loaded a round into a pistol during the couple’s altercation just moments before.

Parscale, 44, is seen in the political world as a respected and talented campaign giant. Just weeks and months prior, he was giving speeches at Trump’s rallies and campaign stops. To say his fall from grace was epic in the eyes of his fans and social media followers would not be an understatement. The shocking footage shows a man in trouble, a wife frightened, and police doing what seemingly needed to be done when a 911 dispatch officer mentions guns, alcohol, and possible domestic violence. This is the trifecta of how to escalate a simple argument into tragedy, and cops know the stats on such destructive and stacked factors.

While the situation itself is bizarre enough, what really must be asked is how does a media and political giant get here? It’s a far chasm from the public figure the conservative world has known.

The answer is the “License to Misbehave.” Americans (and other cultures around the globe) have seen this fall from grace pattern happen time and again. You could add any number of prominent figures to the list of those who’ve behaved erratically and tragically while intoxicated; high profile crashes aren’t so rare these days, after all.

But in America, being intoxicated during these meltdowns provides cover for behaviors that would otherwise be seen as completely objectionable. From cheating on your husband/wife to uncharacteristic fights in public to a drunken altercation with a firearm, all of these are seen differently as long as the person is drunk or high. In the addiction research world, this phenomenon is called the “license to misbehave.” Crash your car while drinking; it’s OK, “He was drunk.” Get arrested while picking up a bag of weed; it’s understandable, “He was high at the time – he’s got a drug problem.” If you push the license to misbehave too far, all it takes is a quick trip to your local treatment center, along with a drawn out “Sorry” and your problems can disappear in the public eye. Just blame it on addiction. It’s all a charade that is played between the offending public figure and society.

We all see the “I’m going to rehab” for the charade it is – yet we accept this as a path to absolution. On the one hand our culture provides the license to misbehave, and then we provide a get out of jail option by using rehab and the addiction disease myth. Is it any wonder that the license to misbehave is so prominent in our society?

Let’s see if Brad Parscale uses the license to misbehave as his excuse for his poor choices and behaviors or will he own his mistake, make better choices, take personal responsibility for his actions, and go in a renewed direction? These are, after all, the only two choices Brad has. If he gets bad advive and chooses option number one, there will be a dark shadow on his life and career from which he may never recover – being seen as an alcoholic for life is no way to further one’s occupation and lifestyle. We can only hope he makes the second choice, so he can crawl out of that hole, and once again become the prominent respected political figure he was just a week prior.

Take option two Brad, we’ve all made mistakes and we want to see you on top of the world again.

Biden Looks Straight Into Camera, Says America Is ‘Morally Deprived’ — Watch

Proud American, right here.

He’s right. For once, Joe Biden is right. America is “morally deprived,” he just didn’t mention the people responsible for the decline. Because of far-left policies, this great nation allows women to get away with murder; allows lawbreakers and criminals to become citizens; and hands out “free” money to those unwilling to work. The only problem with Biden’s sentence is that he didn’t use the words “Democrats are” before “morally derived.” Biden blabbered, “I believe we are in a battle for the soul of this nation. And the simple truth is our soul be troubled as long as systemic racism is allowed to persist. We can’t eliminate ‘zimply’ overnight. We can’t ‘eliminateverthing.’ But it’s corrosive, it’s destructive and it’s costly. It costs every American. Not just who felt the sting of racial injustice. We’re not just less of a – We’re not just a nation of morally deprived because of systemic racism. We’re also less prosperous. We’re less successful. We’re less secure.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=33&v=OM6qa7WgFoU&feature=emb_title From Fox News: Biden revealed the federal government will purchase an additional 100 million doses of vaccine each from Pfizer and Moderna as part of its effort to ramp up the unprecedented vaccination drive. Even with the acquisition of more vaccine supplies, Biden warned that distribution will take time and other precautions, such as wearing masks, should remain a priority for Americans. “The brutal truth is, it’s going to take months before we can the majority of Americans vaccinated – months,” Biden said. “In the next few months, masks, not vaccines, are the best defense against COVID-19. Experts say that wearing masks from now just until April would save 50,000 lives that otherwise would pass away if we don’t wear these masks.” Sound off on Joe in the comments section…

President Goofy said some pretty silly things about America and the Trump Administration on Tuesday afternoon. Better get used to hearing that. Unfortunately, whether we like it or not – or whether the country can hang on long enough – we’re stuck with Joe and Kamala. These people and their supporters loathe America. It couldn’t be clearer. WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1354147571552440320 https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1354149480367595521 Reaction from Right Scoop: Americans have not bought into a zero sum game and that’s not how America operates. But this is the bizarrely skewed version of America that Democrats want Americans to believe is happening. Which is why they always drag out this tired and very dishonest propaganda. One of the things that makes America great is that everyone in this country has the opportunity to succeed as long as government stays out of the way. It doesn’t matter if someone grows up in poverty or with a silver spoon in their mouth. Just look at Ben Carson as a great example! Joe is attempting to make it clear that he will be the most “progressive” president this country has ever seen. Not good. Not good at all.
