This tit for tat is stupid. Politics is for silly message board arguments, not life or death. Anybody who think otherwise, right or left, is mentally ill.


This tit for tat has gone on for years. The rhetoric is getting worse and worse and the left keeps ratcheting it up. I've predicted things were going to get ugly and they sure as f*ck have. Now, go enjoy your free evening of Shakespeare in the Park..........

the left always has to try and dig up some moral equivalency. This one is a particulary pathetic attempt. CBS tries to equate "lock her up" chants to this left wing nut job shooting at Republicans. The lengths these people will go to protect the Democrat party knows no bounds.

=================================

After GOP Shooting, CBS Spotlights Anti-Hillary ‘Lock Her Up' Chant While Talking Political Violence
By Scott Whitlock | June 14, 2017 3:39 PM EDT

In the hours after a mass shooting by a Bernie Sanders-supporting, anti-Trump individual, CBS’s live coverage on Wednesday strangely cited the Hillary Clinton “lock her up” chant during a discussion on political violence. A few minutes after reading a litany of James T. Hodgkinson’s social media rants, Charlie Rose shifted, “Clearly we saw that during a campaign.”

He continued, “People talk about things like, you know, ‘lock her up' and we saw some of the most crude political language that we heard, even though there is a long history of political attacks in the American politics since the Founding Fathers.”

While the exact reason Hodgkinson snapped isn't known, it clearly wasn't anti-Hillary Clinton chants.

Rose concluded of the 2016 election: “We did see expressions that we had not heard before. This has been a season of course political rhetoric.”

A few minutes earlier, reporter Jeff Pegues alerted viewers to Hodgkinson’s liberal rants: “Trump is a traitor. He has destroyed our democracy.... It's time to destroy Trump and co.”

A partial transcript is below:

Quote:
CBS Live coverage
6/14/17
12:00

JEFF PEGUES: This suspect, James T. Hodgkinson from Belleville, IL, 66-years-old, left a trail of information for investigators on his social media pages, including Facebook. There was some anti-Trump postings on his Facebook page. I'm going to read a few. Quote, “Trump is a traitor. He has destroyed our democracy.” Quote, “It's time to destroy Trump and co.” I suspect he meant company there. So those are just two of the postings that we have. Those were posted in March. He also called Republicans quote, “clowns.” So for those who think, and Senator Rand Paul mentioned this, that maybe this was politically motivated. This is the type of information that suggests that perhaps it was.


12:12

CHARLIE ROSE: We saw during the time that members went back home because of some of the debates in Congress, they were particularly raucous town meetings. Not about threats to their lives but clearly of the level in, in combativeness was more apparent than ever.

NANCY CORDES: I have been at some of the town halls where you can tell that the member of Congress is up on the stage and making a calculation about are these people simply angry and frustrated and getting feelings out or is there more too it than that? Is there a sinister intent behind the anger they are showing to the members of Congress? And there were situations where members had to be hustled out by security, taken out by a back door because they were worried that the crowd was getting too spun up.

Obviously, people have every right to be passionate about political issues. And, in fact, that passion translates to a lot of influence in the country whether it's on the right or the left. People know that, you know, that showing strong beliefs and getting large crowds together is the way that you influence your member of Congress. So, it can be very difficult for a member or their staff to know the difference between people who are simply exercising their First Amendment rights and want to make sure that their representative knows how strongly they feel and someone who has a more menacing intent.

CHARLIE ROSE: Clearly we saw that during a campaign. Which people talk about things like, you know, ‘lock her up’ and we saw some of the most crude political language that we heard even though there is a long history of political attacks in the American politics since the Founding Fathers. We did see expressions that we had not heard before. This has been a season of course political rhetoric.

For the liberals who write this guy off as a nut and not representative of them - is there anything on his Facebook page you would disavow yourself of had I shown it to you yesterday? He seems fairly mainstream lefty ideologue to me (about 15% of the population). I think the only difference is (like jihadists) his ideology was combined with having nothing to lose. The disturbing number of lefties supporting this guy is testament to that.

I was honestly shocked at how positive initial reports were - it made me think the shooter might have been using a 22 or something. But yeah, getting hit in the pelvis with a 7.62x39 is serious stuff. He's likely going to have life-long implications.

Multiple reports that Scalise's condition has now been downgraded to "grave."

This really sucks.

Just in case there are still some libtards on TV claiming they are not sure what the shooter's motives were (I can't believe anyone could be that dishonest or obtuse)....

=====================================

EXCLUSIVE: Assassination List Found On James Hodgkinson’s Body
Peter Hasson
4:51 PM 06/16/2017

James T. Hodgkinson, the shooter who opened fire on dozens of Republican congressmen and staffers at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday, had a list of Republican names in his pocket that was recovered by the FBI, The Daily Caller has learned.

The news that the shooter had a list of names suggests the shooting was not a random outburst, but instead appears to be a premeditated political assassination.

The list was written out on notepad paper and found in the shooter’s pocket, according to multiple sources with intimate knowledge of the situation, who spoke on condition of anonymity, citing the sensitivity of the investigation. The list of names included Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan and Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, TheDC has confirmed.


The FBI has contacted at least one of the three congressmen to inform them of their inclusion on the list.

None of the three offices would offer comments on the record when asked about the names on the list. Brooks and Franks’ office further directed all inquiries to the Capitol police, who declined to comment. The FBI’s Washington field office, which is handling the investigation, also provided no comment, citing the ongoing investigation.

All three representatives are members of the House Freedom Caucus, which contains the lower chamber’s most conservative members. Both Duncan and Brooks attended Wednesday’s baseball practice.

Duncan said he spoke with Hodgkinson briefly before the shooting, when the would-be assassin asked him in the parking lot if the players on the field were Republicans or Democrats. Duncan said he answered that the players were Republicans, before leaving the field. Brooks was still present on the field when Hodgkinson began shooting with a rifle, wounding four people including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise. The gunman died after being shot by a member of Scalise’s security detail.

The FBI also recovered a cell phone, a computer and a camera in the shooter’s van and is processing the items, according to a statement the agency issued on Thursday.

A 66-year-old progressive who volunteered on Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign, Hodgkinson’s social media profile was filled with violent-sounding rhetoric against the Republican Party. “It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co,” Hodgkinson wrote in one post. He also belonged to several anti-GOP groups on Facebook, including one called “Terminate The Republican Party.” The members of that group celebrated Hodgkinson’s mass assassination attempt. (RELATED: Shooting At GOP Baseball Practice Latest In Pattern Of Violence Against Republicans)

He spewed left-wing talking points on Facebook, consistently railing against Republicans and the wealthy.

“We all know that the rich don’t pay enough taxes,” he wrote in one letter to the editor of his local paper. “I have never said ‘life sucks,’ only the policies of the Republicans,” he wrote in another.

Hodgkinson’s widow, Suzanne Hodgkinson, said Thursday afternoon that she had “no idea” he was going to carry out the murders. James told her that he was going to Washington, D.C. to “work on taxes” and “change the tax brackets,” she said.

Hodgkinson’s time spent volunteering on Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign compelled the socialist senator to disavow the shooter the same day.

“I have just been informed that the alleged shooter at the Republican baseball practice is someone who apparently volunteered on my presidential campaign. I am sickened by this despicable act,” Sanders said in a prepared statement on Wednesday. “Let me be as clear as I can be. Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms.”
