CBS’s Scott Pelley, Others Blame Republicans For Alexandria Attack

The perpetrator in the shooting at the baseball practice was a hard-left Bernie Sanders supporter who clearly wanted to kill Republicans. A favorite tactic of those on the left is to stir up violence and then blame it on the right. They see nothing wrong with this kind of lying. Anything, no matter how vile, may be used against their enemies.

Pelley cherry picks his examples of violence, leaving out the vastly more numerous attacks by leftists.

“Scott Pelley: D.C. Attack on Congressmen Was ‘to Some Degree Self-Inflicted'”

It’s clear from Pelley’s subsequent commentary that his answers to all three elements are “Yes.” It’s equally clear from the examples he supplied as support that he sees (or wants viewers to see) the problem as predominantly about the conduct of those on the right.”

Also, on CNN, the former Editor of the New York Times, Jill Abramson says the violence we are seeing is the product of Republican rage:

“Former NYT Editor: Republican “Rage Machine” Responsible For Current Political Climate”

Abramson put the blame on Republicans for the divisive political climate and accused them of “benefiting from a kind of rage machine that operates in this country.”

There is something twisted in Abramson’s visage.

    I rarely get truly pissed off. But this truly pisses me off. Do they openly sit around and admit their bias? What say you, Revoistas?

    • MadBrad says:

      Self-awareness is not something those assholes are known for. Of course they are propagandists so they really don’t care about anything but pushing out what they think is important. Truth be damned.

      • Z says:

        Agreed. But do they even receive the pushback? And if so, do they simply dismiss it as noise from simpletons, or do they acknowledge it and not care?

        It is truly astounding the bias they routinely show. It’s unbelievable, literally, to me that they aren’t aware of what they are doing.

        • MadBrad says:

          Nope. The only thing they know is the fish bowl they are swimming in. They have all convinced themselves of their own bullshit and they are swimming in it. No, they do not care what anyone else thinks. Then they act incredulous when someone points their BS out to them. They feel insulted that there should be anyone who has an opinion other than theirs.

    This reminds me a lot of the guitar magazine I subscribed to for a couple years. It had stories about players, instruments, and manufacturers. It was produced in the bay area of California.

    Before long I started seeing articles about global warming, unsustainable species, and other left-wing politics. I wrote a letter to the editor, telling him I was not into that stuff, that I wanted guitar articles, that he could count me out if he kept publishing stuff that was popular in the bay area but not in the rest of the country. I pointed out that it was likely that his publisher was more interested in sales of the magazine rather that a rehash of this morning’s conversation over five dollar coffee.

    They published a portion of my letter and replied with snark. I went away, never to return.
