Comedian Kathy Griffin recently announced on TikTok that she has been diagnosed with complex PTSD and suggested that former President Donald Trump played a part in her condition.
This comes after Griffin faced backlash for tweeting a picture of herself holding a bloodied, severed head that resembled Trump back in 2017.
Griffin’s actions were distasteful and dangerous. Her picture could have incited violence against the former president. However, despite the backlash, the left still embraced her. CNN, where she was a co-host for New Year’s Eve, fired her only after facing public backlash. In contrast, conservative voices are often silenced and ostracized for expressing their views.
Griffin’s PTSD announcement shows how desperate the left is to paint themselves as victims. But let’s not forget that it was Griffin who initiated the hateful and violent rhetoric against Trump. This is yet another example of how the left tries to play the victim and justify their own reprehensible behavior.
It’s time for Republicans to speak out against this kind of behavior and demand accountability from those on the left. The left cannot continue to use its platform to spread hate and incite violence while simultaneously playing the victim. It’s time to hold them accountable for their actions.
