I always try. The problem is that your self-admitted label has been hijacked and used by those you disagree with.

I can sympathize. The flag many of my ancestors fought and died under, a symbol of pride and heritage, has been hijacked by hateful fools who try to twist its meaning into prejudice and hate.

You never stop spewing hate, especilally in the mud pit.

Who do you think you are fooling?

Anybody can look at your posting history filled with hate.


That member (and a couple others) are one of the main reasons why I won't post in the Mud Pit anymore. Their rhetoric is bordering on incitement at this point, and the discussion has nothing to do with policy and everything to do with hate.

Really?

White supremacist terror accounts for more incidents over the last 10 to 15 years, than does any other kind of terrorism in the USA.

White supremacists are not known for their liberal, lefty mindset.


Actually the most common form of terror in the US, excluding 9/11, are hate crimes against Jews. This is according to the FBI. Many right-wingers support Jews, so that doesn't add up. Nice try though.

I think its very decent, noble, and righteous of you to find common ground in amongst such a divisive situation. Nicely done TheRedneck.

No. That's the narrative that was created and you now believe. The vast majority of us on the Left and not much different than those on the Right. We are not radical, we are not violent.

But that does not stop people from believing we are. They fell for the propaganda narrative and now we have to spend our time telling them what they believe is BS.

Scalise is fine, the gunman is dead.

I wonder what this will do for gun control as issues like this always forces action when it hits too close to home, I always thought this kind of attack was bound to happen to Trump, not to one of his colleagues.


Can't get close enough. Obviously waited for an opportunity to catch them at a vulnerable time... out in the open. What better pace than a ball field? Probably it was advertised all over the news beforehand.

"See your favorite congressman tomorrow 7am, at the ball park". Anyway, trying to get close enough to gubment buildings in Washington is nigh impossible.

Not only does the use of an 'assault' rifle make gun control an issue but also security surrounding officials, from now on.

Everyone vote for more gun control and bullet proof limos, yay!

the liberal media and its divisive rhetoric are the hook for multiple police officer deaths and the continued downward spiral of American culture, until people pull their heads out of their ass and wake up to the large scale brainwashing then this will only get worse

You're just trying to engage in deflection rather than addressing the actual issue, not surprisingly as you've tirelessly contributed towards it, no use trying to pass the Bill on to me, whoever the rest of you are they can all chip in.



I'm not engaging in deflection at all. You're making an assertion that you can't back up based entirely on your emotional knee jerk reaction. If anyone is deflecting here, it's you.

I've tirelessly contributed to what exactly?

I've never called for political violence. I don't support political violence. I've spoken out against political violence at every turn and the same can be said for all the other leftists on ATS that I'm familiar with. This ploy that you lot think will work — silencing political opposition by trying to smear us with the actions of one would be assassin — isn't going to work at all.

I know what he said. As a socialist, I'd be considered hard Left, would I not?

But I am not the type of person he described.

He's talking out of his ass in order to perpetuate the narrative that is being built in this thread.

Many of you (not necessarily you) should be ashamed of how ignorant you are.


Human beings tend to speak in general terms. It's not about "perpetuating narratives".

This is just sick...that there are people who are 'celebrating' it and making light of it...

news.grabien.com...



These people represent the true feelings of the far left. It's who they are.


It's who we are? I'm a Leftist and I find not only this shooting horrible, but also some of those comments.

Please stop using such a broad brush.

It's become clear you have no shame in using the tragedies of others in order to push a political narrative.



He said the far left. You know that. Don't be dishonest.


Maybe he is trying to identify himself as an extremist? The language of the post was pretty clear and no one would stoop to such lame sickening tactics as twisting a tragedy like this into an attempt at forcing a lame narrative...


Is that not what people in this thread are doing? They are building-up a narrative about the Left.

The radical left.
Just say that you do not support violence like this and you will not be lumped in with them.


That does nothing to show people how ignorant they are being.


You've posted on this thread a few times and not once commented on the actual violence committed or the motivations which are clear. It would appear it is you more interested in the politics of this - defending the far left.
This was a politically motivated attack by a far left gunman against the Republican party against a back drop of hate being spewed by left wing media.
I view the far left as anyone participating in the propaganda and lies and fomenting hatred , whilst taking some form of sick gratification in the death and injury of others if it furthers their failed cause.


Have they released any info on why he did this? Did you talk to him personally?

Very little info has been released and it appears you are just saying things in the hopes it comes true.

Go check your numbers again.

Also, white supremacy is a right wing issue. Its not a matter for discussion. Its a fact. The Earth goes round the Sun, the Solar System is only large until you consider the scale of the universe, and white supremacy is undertaken by those who most predominantly vote Republican or further right than that, which is why white supremacists are rightly described as far right.

Try again yourself.

If you consider yourself far left you are far left. I do not consider myself alt-right but I support Trump and his ideas for this country which people would consider alt-right. You outed yourself with that Freudian type....

This incident was not spurned by Trump but the current political climate of hate that is being produced in the MSM, social media. actors, musicians and with protests.

He sure did 'resist' today. I have been waiting for something like this to happen. This will not be the last either. This, as many of the protests and attacks in the last year, are domestic terrorism.

Thank god we have a DOJ and an AG who will work to stop this instead of blaming citizens who do not agree with their ideology.

Agreed and at the same time the polar opposite of the equation uses that hijacked label to perpetuate their own narratives.

Awful close to the Orlando massacre anniversary. Only 2 days off.

Seemed like that was the kickoff point to the "Summer of Rage" last year.
