I love how this became the MSM media's fault almost instantly.

Another Congressman now on FNC calling this Political Rhetorical Terrorism...

Fueled by the nasty state of Political discourse in this country...



yeah I saw that.

His message was that both sides need to tone down the rhetoric, which I agree with.

Bit for me, it seems a little early to cite this as political rhetorical terrorsism. Might want to wait until more facts come out.

But as far as the message, he is right both sides need to be more civil.

sounds alot like he was trying to make small talk, especially when its obvious who the republicans and democrats were by their shirts.


Sounds like he was planting a motive in the minds of the witnesses.

WITNESS: Police yelled to suspect "put down the gun" and people from the baseball team yelled something like screw that, "shoot him."


Twitter

That actually makes me chuckle.



I am going to hell for laughing at this

Don't start.
If some crazy did this in the name of politics that's on him.
It has nothing at all to do with democrats or republicans.
It's a crazy person.
Please don't make a bad situation even worse by politicizing this.


The rhetoric of the Democrats is creating this atmosphere of violence. They openly call for the death of the President, give a platform to mock beheadings of political figures on national television, hold nightly plays in Central Park depicting the assassination of the President, make music videos showing the execution of Trump.

On and on and on.

They've cultivated this animal mentality, and now we see the result of it.

The Dems have got to condemn and stop this violence. I wonder how long it will take for Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi to condemn this attempted slaughter of Members of Congress.

It is their fault, at least partially. The MSM has been fueling increasingly-hysterical "Resist Trump" talk for months now. It was only a matter of time before it triggered someone to violence.

Inside job!

Team DNC's starting pitcher / top home run hitter must have been a scratch for the upcoming game.

So one with access to the intel went out of his mind knowing Team DNC was sure to lose.

An actual select-fire M4 like the military uses, or a civilian semi-auto AR-15/M4gery?


A M4 utilizing "3 round bursts" could explain the erratic shooting?

The police will tell us soon what we need to kno

Conflicting reports on the weapon, I saw a lengthy interview with a witness, describe the weapon as an AK type, with curved mag.... also said it wasn't automatic...

Stop please.
It's not a civil war between parties.
It's one sick person.

Why fuel an argument or try to start something.

Isn't this bad enough?

That's because the MSM rhetoric has been so hate-filled, dishonest, and vile that it's the first thing that comes to mind. As I said earlier, the left-wing media along with celebrities and politicians have spewed so many lies, hyperbole, and violent repulsive images in plays, pictures, stand-up routines, etc., they HAVE taken it to THAT level.

I have NEVER seen it as bad as it is now....relentless, hateful, untruthful, and calculated. Using words like "the resistance" in the manner the left has been using it (even Hillary said that she was joining "the resistance"!) is a dog whistle for this violence, imo.

There are crazies that believe their s#it and get all stirred up with hate and react to it.

So, yes. MSM rhetoric and hateful lies coming from the left daily and nightly is the first thing that comes to mind.
