“Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co,” the shooter wrote in one post.
Gee, I wonder what he was watching…
Well, this didn’t take long. Rep Steve Scalise gets gunned down, but not killed, by a crazed Leftist who was ginned up to violence and radicalized by the media is now ATTACKING THE VICTIM!
Because he’s an evil conservative and their “compassion” is apparently also very partisaned.
…the outpouring of support has stopped, mostly on the Left, where news outlets and prominent liberals are attacking the congressman over his conservative voting record. One of the Capitol Police officers, who saved Rep. Scalise and the rest of the Republican baseball team practicing before their annual charity game with Democrats last Wednesday morning, was gay. Officer Crystal Griner was assigned to protect Rep. Scalise, who rightfully leapt into action when Bernie Sanders supporter James Hodgkinson decided top open fire on the GOP baseball team last Wednesday morning in Alexandria, Virginia. Police killed Hodgkinson. Rep. Scalise was wounded after being shot in the hip.
Griner and Officer David Bailey, who was also assigned to Rep. Scalise’s protective detail, were wounded. Yet, there’s a toxic and appalling mix of humor and smugness that Rep. Scalise, a proponent of traditional marriage, was saved by a black lesbian cop. As if this was liberalism punishing someone for holding the wrong views.
I doubt Rep. Scalise is going to wish he was dead because a gay person saved him. Also, he’s a conservative Republican from the Deep South; did you guys really expect he was liberal of social issues? I’ll let Guy take it from here, but then, there’s the media’s reaction, which is equally appalling.
CBS News’ Scott Pelley offered a commentary last week, calling the attacking congressional Republicans self-inflicted “to some degree,” so Rep. Scalise being shot was partially his fault. That’s classy.
It’s time to ask whether the attack on the United States Congress, yesterday, was foreseeable, predictable and, to some degree, self-inflicted.
Too many leaders, and political commentators, who set an example for us to follow, have led us into an abyss of violent rhetoric which, it should be no surprise, has led to violence.
Yesterday [June 14] was not the first time.
In December last year, a man with an assault rifle stormed into a Washington-area pizzeria to free child sex slaves whom Hillary Clinton was holding there — or at least that’s what political blog sites had said. He fired into a locked door to discover no children in chains.
Sen. Bernie Sanders has called the president the “most dangerous in history.” The shooter yesterday was a Sanders volunteer.
You might think that no sane person would act on political hate speech, and you’d be right. Trouble is, there are a lot of Americans who struggle with mental illness.
In February, the president tweeted that the news media were the “enemy of the American people”:
The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!

Later, at a lunch for reporters, President Trump was asked whether he worried that language would incite violence. His pause indicated it had never crossed his mind. Then he said, “No, that doesn’t worry me.”
As children we’re taught, “Words will never hurt me.” But when you think about it, violence almost always begins with words. In “Twitter world,” we’ve come to believe that our first thought is our best thought.
It’s past time for all of us — presidents, politicians, reporters, citizens, all of us — to pause to think again.
Good thing he’s a “fair and balanced” “Journalist, don’t you think?
No obvious Bias. 🙂
Rep. Scalise has been in critical condition for days, undergone three surgeries, and was on the verge of death when he arrived at the hospital following the attack. Yet, liberal America says we’re going to slam him because he has a voting record we find to be problematic. Even when someone’s life is in the balance, the Left just can’t help it. This attack was self-inflicted?
Remember, these are the people who think they have cornered the market and have sole possession of the world’s “compassion” “sensitivity”. 😦
“the only way you can get to civility, is you must start with the establishment of justice. you must provide for the common good and you must provide the general welfare” and that Republicans “have to have a change in the trajectory of policy.”— Rev William J Barber on MSNBC
Translation: Do it our way or else.
“He did come to leadership after some controversy over attending a white nationalist event, which he says he didn’t know what it was,” MSNBC Host Jo Ann Reid said.
Translation: He’s a Racist too!
“He also co-sponsored a bill to amend the Constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman. He co-sponsored the House healthcare bill, which as you said would gut healthcare for millions of people including three million children and he cosponsored a bill to repeal the ban on semiautomatic weapons,” Reid continued, bashing Scalise for holding mainstream Republican positions. “Because he is in jeopardy and everybody is pulling for him, are we required in a moral sense to put that aside in the moment?”
How dare anyone be different from us, Homo Superior Liberalis! We are the Holiest of The Holy and we shall not be denied our rightful place as Rulers of All!
Despite House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R., La.) being in critical condition after an attempted assassination, liberal website Fusion denounced him on Thursday as a “bigoted homophobe.”
“Bigoted Homophobe Steve Scalise’s Life Was Saved by a Queer Black Woman,” read the headline from Fusion, which is owned by Univision.
“Steve Scalise, the House majority whip who was shot by a gunman who attacked a congressional baseball practice on Wednesday, has kept company with racists,” Fusion wrote. “He was forced to apologize for speaking at an international conference of white supremacists, and reportedly referred to himself as ‘David Duke without the baggage.'”
“He also authored Louisiana’s ban on same-sex marriage. Like many of his ilk, he said he was only trying to protect ‘traditional’ marriage,” the website continued. (Free Beacon)
