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.
