In case you weren’t already convinced that leftists are completely and totally morally bankrupt, they showed up on Twitter following the death of former First Lady Barbara Bush to remove your unbelief.
Yes, many so-called “progressives” took to social media to celebrate the death of Bush and to ridicule her and her family.
Those liberals, such a classy bunch, right?
The Daily Wire is reporting:
Former first lady Barbara Pierce Bush passed away on Tuesday at the age of 92. Known for her sharp intellect and passion for literacy, many took to social media to express admiration for the beloved American icon as well as sympathy for the Bush family.
Twitter was swarmed with well wishes and heartfelt tributes from both sides of the aisle:
One of the first books I ever read as a kid was “Millie’s Book” by Barbara Bush… she was a gem of a human according to all who met or knew her. Her kindness to my cousins and @JaneMHorton earned my gratefulness forever. RIP Mrs. Bush.

I literally can't stop crying about Barbara Bush. I do the same thing when I read anything about the Reagans. It's not just their deaths that make me sad, it's that they represent an age of noble American patriotism that I think is largely—if not completely—gone.

Predictably, there were those on the Left that immediately used the opportunity to launch vitriolic attacks the former first lady:
This is so so disappointing. The things she and her family have down to global Black people is criminal, to say the least. She is part of the system of white supremacy, anti Black, anti feminist, as Malcolm said “who taught you to hate yourself?”

wow. per a source close to the family, Barbara Bush's last words were "Jeb is short for Jeborah."

Dad: Barbara Bush died
Me: Ok, let me know when Henry Kissinger dies so we can have a party
Mom: Henry Kissinger is still alive!?

Geez, I get it. Barbara Bush is dead.
Can we stop acting like it matters to anyone but a family of war criminals?

Sick and disgusting are two adjectives you can use to describe this kind of behavior but they fall woefully short of being able to fully capture in words how depraved these people really are.
Whether or not you agreed with the First Lady’s politics, she really did set out to make the world a better place and dedicated herself to increasing the literacy rate in this country. She saw something wrong in our country and took actual steps to change things.
That’s more than the vast majority of those who tweeted these horrible statements above have done. In fact, their words are nothing more than pollution of the soul, adding more and more vitriol and misery to an already hurting world.
Hopefully one day they’ll wake up, grow up, and understand how truly beautiful Barbara Bush really was.
