The news of the passing of iconic former Senator Bob Dole resulted in respectful tributes to a man who served his country in WW II and then became a model of dignity and loyalty to America during his long career in Washington, but some weren’t as respectful.

In the typical tasteless manner that could be expected of those to whom duty, honor and sacrifice mean nothing, blue check leftists took to Twitter to dance on Dole’s grave and to besmirch the legacy of a heroic American with their standard toxic snark with MSNBC anchor Mehdi Hasan leading the way.

Formerly of Al Jazeera, Hasan has a history of making disgraceful remarks including hateful rhetoric about non-Muslims and gays which he dismissed as “dump offensive ranty stuff”  in a 2019 tweet and he was dismissive of Dole over his support of former President Donald J. Trump.

“Bob Dole, who endorsed and voted for Trump twice, and called himself a ‘Trumper’ as recently as July, has passed away,” he wrote in a retweet of a New York Times story announcing Dole’s death.

Dole lived to be 98-years-old and was a testament to perseverance, having been gravely wounded in combat when he was fighting the Nazis as a member of the Army’s 10th Mountain Division. He suffered a bullet wound that shattered his shoulder as well as damaged his spine and also lost a kidney. Following his being struck, Dole lay on the battlefield for six hours before being evacuated, he wasn’t expected to survive let alone return home where he would continue to serve his country in the U.S. Senate.

His war wound also left him temporarily paralyzed and after a long, painful recovery in a military hospital, Dole would suffer the effects for the remainder of his life. He was awarded two Purple Hearts well as the Bronze Star for his sacrifice, making the treatment from the blue check leftist trolls all the more despicable.

Others joined Hasan in unfairly maligning Dole, including leftist influencer Aaron Rupar who also suggested that he was unworthy of respect due to his support of Trump.

Some were even more loathsome in their response to Dole’s death.

Hasan was deservedly dragged for his disrespectful sentiment.

The nation’s 45th president paid tribute to Dole in one of the statements that he has been forced to release since he was de-platformed by the leftist tech oligarchs who are waging an open war against free speech.

“Bob Dole was an American war hero and true patriot for our Nation. He served the Great State of Kansas with honor and the Republican Party was made stronger by his service,” Trump wrote. “Our Nation mourns his passing, and our prayers are with Elizabeth and his wonderful family.”

Another former Republican president, George W. Bush also paid tribute in his own statement, “This good man represented the finest of American values. He defended them in uniform during World War II. He advanced them in the United States Senate.”

Current President Joe Biden also paid his respects to Dole.

As did Bill Clinton who defeated Dole in the 1996 election.

Former President Jimmy Carter also mourned Dole’s passing.

Even Barack Obama, who has done much to contribute to the current state of racial and political acrimony in America, was compelled to salute Dole.

Undeterred by his critics, Hasan doubled down.

The contrast between the modern political left and the dignified political discourse of the past represented by Bob Dole couldn’t be clearer and Hasan’s tweets are merely an exclamation point on their current depravity.
