From the shooters Facebook page: "Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co"

A deranged Bernie-supporting, Russian collusion-obsessed leftist attempts a mass shooting of right-wing politicians.

It's going to be hard for the left-loving mainstream media to spin this. My bets is that - the media will blame white supremacy (since this shooter was a white guy), blame men, and blame gun control.

^Could have just as easily been a right wing crazy who happened to support Trump shooting Democratic lawmakers. Would you have used such an incident to smear all Republicans?

In fact a similar mass shooting incident happened just a few years involving Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

MrOilers
14-06-2017, 11:52 AM
And right on cue, the first post from a liberal is trying to excuse this assassin's actions because "well, ANYONE could've done it!" and "A Democrat politician was shot almost 10 years ago!"

Give it a rest.

Your opinion was quite different when Democratic Congresswoman Giffords was shoot back in 2011.

This is what MrOilers had to say in post #10 then:


Stop right there.

This tragedy isn't Sarah Palin, it isn't Republicans, it isn't the Tea Party, it isn't guns.

This tragedy was caused by a destructive person, and he could have killed with a home made bomb instead of a gun if he really wanted to. And there are crazies on all sides of any political debate, who advocate for the deaths of politicians that they don't agree with.

6 people were brutally murdered in public. This is not a political point.

Yup, I remember that incident well - an anarchist nutcase sprayed bullets at a crowd in a town hall. He hit the Democrat Congresswoman. Caused a big second-amendment debate.


Today, the shooter asked where the Democrat baseball team was practicing and where the Repbublican team was practicing. He then took a rifle with several ammo cartridges and he opened fire on the Republicans.

This was a 100% politically-motivated kill-attempt, especially encouraged by the media, celebrities, and Democrat politicians since Trump was elected.

Blaming this shooting on the media makes as much sense as blaming Stephen Harper or Ralph Klein for the beaheading that happened on the Greyhound bus in Manitoba (which I am sure some idiots out there did anyway). There are extremists on all sides of any political debate, whether they are abortion clinic bombers, anarchists, gunmen, or eco-terrorists, which we saw plenty of before. Scapegoat whoever you want, but this gunman (like all of them) is an unbalanced and destructive person who took actions (for no determinate or apparent reason) that caused a lot of harm. That's it.

If anybody is acting disgusting in the aftermath of this tragedy, it's the right-leaners of the political spectrum who are digging for anything to attempt to turn this into a political issue. Nobody in their right mind (of any political affiliation) condones this activity at all.

To think that the "left wing" has some kind of monopoly on this sort of thing, or that they started it, is both absurd and hateful. Blaming Bernie, Left Wing media, Loretta Lynch, Tim Kaine, etc. is both a cop-out and a fallacy.

As people offered prayers for the victims, a profile began to emerge of Hodgkinson, a onetime home inspector. A Facebook page believed to be his includes pictures of 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and rhetoric against President Trump, including a post that reads: “Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.”

One post, written on March 22, read: “Trump is Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.” On Facebook, he was a member of groups with names including “The Road to Hell is Paved with Republicans” and “Terminate the Republican Party.” None of his posts explicitly advocated violence.

FBI Special Agent in Charge Tim Slater, who is leading the investigation, cautioned reporters that it was “too early” to know what motivated the shooting.

My point (and it has been from the beginning) is that there are extremists on all sides of the political spectrum. Pinning the blame for a murder on people all one side of the political spectrum is a pointless exercise, as this type of senseless violence and madness can obviously come from anywhere.

In this shooting, as with other mass shootings, while people may talk of the shooter's motivation, their political stripes are rarely at issue. Careful consideration of the root cause generally points to stronger gun control better support for mental health issues as the keys to preventing such actions. Odd that in this instance, it seems to be immediately met with howls at the media or the Democratic Party. Mass shootings are a symptom, and Dems and the media are not the virus. Easy access to guns and limited access to mental health support are.

perhaps it's just semantics but the senseless violence and madness doesn't come from "anywhere".

if it came from anywhere it would have to be considered as coming at/from random and that's not the case.

irrespective of whether it comes from the left or the right or from an immigrant or a homegrown supremacist or from a christian or a muslim or an atheist arena, all of these arenas are providing cover and/or a hiding place and/or a rationale for the same kind of hatred and propensity for violence. they all encourage it from their own midsts by attributing blame for it to other midsts and refusing to see or acknowledge their own respective complicity.

there seems to be some sort of tribal belief - which is easy enough to see without leaving this thread - that one's own tribe by definition is good and pure and evil only resides elsewhere. until we recognize that evil thrives best at home and that's where it needs to be rooted out, i fear we are doomed to failure.

It's not "ironic". Those videos show protesters starting physical violence against Trump supporters or trying to physically attack Trump himself. Trump is merely talking and encouraging people to fight back against people attacking them.


Note how that is completely different than the left, who is preaching that the way you combat people hurting your feelings (or how to deal with people you disagree with) is to assault them with physical violence.

C2E is special in a sense . It's way before social media ever existed and was a joint effort ( can you believe Medwards was a moderator ?) It was partially funded by the city/ EEDC ..it was a propoganada machine for the city...till there were inner rumblings . Funding got cut . It went independent . It wasn't till the last few years that the forum really changed. It needed crowed funding and Admin needed help. ( or so I understand the evolution ) now it's become a more FREE place. It's more an everything forum , where everyone is entitled to express and have an opinion .

It is dispicable that some posters want to make the political hay out of a tragic event by an extemist with a history of problems who had access to high powered automatic weapons. This guy or the next attack can be from the left or right or a delusional with no political views who just wants to become famous like Mark Chapman who killed John Lennon or John Hinckley who shot Reagan to impress Jodie Foster.

These extremist wackos do not represent left or right views nor do ISIS and Islamic extremists, represent Muslims.

Look at these people for who they are. They are unbalanced and cannot be reasoned with.

I appeal to everyone that the way to stop this is not by making them a symbol of a cause or the poster child of their loose affiliations.

None of you have the moral authority either for outrage or for attack, nor for defending yourselves.

You are all half-humans playing at social war.

Several people have been shot. This is terrible. One hundred and fifty thousand others who saw the sun rise yesterday will not see it rise tomorrow. Do you care to quantify the relative horror? Yes, of course -- that's too easy. How about justifying your lack of concern for the 150,000? Nah. Still too easy to be glib -- liars.

Blaming this shooting on the media makes as much sense as blaming Stephen Harper or Ralph Klein for the beaheading that happened on the Greyhound bus in Manitoba (which I am sure some idiots out there did anyway). There are extremists on all sides of any political debate, whether they are abortion clinic bombers, anarchists, gunmen, or eco-terrorists, which we saw plenty of before. Scapegoat whoever you want, but this gunman (like all of them) is an unbalanced and destructive person who took actions (for no determinate or apparent reason) that caused a lot of harm. That's it.

If anybody is acting disgusting in the aftermath of this tragedy, it's the right-leaners of the political spectrum who are digging for anything to attempt to turn this into a political issue. Nobody in their right mind (of any political affiliation) condones this activity at all.

To think that the "left wing" has some kind of monopoly on this sort of thing, or that they started it, is both absurd and hateful. Blaming Bernie, Left Wing media, Loretta Lynch, Tim Kaine, etc. is both a cop-out and a fallacy.

As people offered prayers for the victims, a profile began to emerge of Hodgkinson, a onetime home inspector. A Facebook page believed to be his includes pictures of 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and rhetoric against President Trump, including a post that reads: “Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.”

Fox host shames Newt Gingrich for blaming GOP baseball shooting on ‘vulgar’ Democrats
https://www.rawstory.com/2017/06/watch-fox-host-shames-newt-gingrich-for-blaming-gop-baseball-shooting-on-vulgar-democrats/

Talking with Fox News, Gingrich pointed fingers at left-wing “hysteria” that he says has exploded ever since President Donald Trump’s election last fall, as evidenced by Kathy Griffin’s latest stunt in which she held up a likeness of Trump’s severed head.

“The intensity on the left is very real,” Gingrich said. “Whether it’s a so-called comedian holding up the president’s head in blood, or it’s right here, in New York City, a play that shows the president being assassinated. Or it’s Democratic leading national politicians who are so angry they have to use vulgarity because they can’t find any common language.”

Fox’s Melissa Francis at this point objected and questioned whether it was right to blame the shooter’s actions on Democrats who swear.

“With respect, though, even if everything you’re saying is true, to talk about it in those kinds of terms, in left and right, right now in the wake of it, does that make sense?” she asked.
“If you want to know the truth,” Gingrich replied.

“But do you rise above it and say…” she began.

“No!” Gingrich objected.


More hypocrisy from Newt

Virginia Shooting ‘Part of a Pattern’ of ‘Increasing Intensity of Hostility on the Left’
http://www.breitbart.com/video/2017/06/14/newt-gingrich-virginia-shooting-part-of-a-pattern-of-increasing-intensity-of-hostility-on-the-left/

“It certainly was a shock this morning,” Gingrich said. “I don’t think any of us expected today to take this turn. But it’s part of a pattern, as you saw the sign this guy was holding. You’ve had an increasing intensity of hostility on the left. Look, I talk to college students regularly who say to me if they are openly for Trump, they get threatened.”

“The intensity on the left is very real,” he added.“Whether it is somebody, as so-called comedian, holding up the president’s head in blood #1 or it’s right here in New York City, a play that shows the president being assassinated, #2 or it’s Democratic leading national politicians who are so angry they have to use vulgarity #3 because they can find any common language to talk. This intensity I think has been building since election night.”

Examples of right wing intensity.

What blows me away is ho much the press acts as if the shooter's motives were unclear.



"This guy had everything but the Bernie Sanders pez dispenser and they still won't admit it. So no, I'm not singing Kumbaya"

https://twitter.com/sean_spicier/status/875333132114948096

There were 53 shootings by right wing nuts over the last several years, so finally some probably unstable guy supporting Sanders goes off and shoots someone and some right wingers want to make it sound like all the left wingers have somehow all turned into political terrorists.

I am not blaming Trump for the 53 shootings, I suspect those people were unstable too. Does the vitriolic political atmosphere in the US contribute to this sort of thing happening? Probably.

Therefore, it would be a good idea for everyone to try dial it back now. If anything, perhaps that is something to take away from this event, but it seems lost on some. Another very good idea would be to try keep guns out of the hands of the unstable.

In fact it seems that's the only thing these elected (and unelected) dems seem to be collecting their padded pay cheques for, to pin something on him. I hate to wish time away but it is going to be very interesting to see who the dems pick to run against Trump in the next election cycle. Whoever it is is going to have to be squeaky clean, have a thick skin and have the ability to put up a real fight. As of yet no one springs to mind.

As an example of unbalanced extremists and hate crimes on both sides of the issue, a 48 year old man ran down 10 people in an attempt to kill "all Muslims"

One dead in UK mosque ‘terror’ attack

An eyewitness has told the BBC he saw the van “deliberately run over about 10 or 15 people” in London’s Finsbury Park.


Abdul Rahman said he and another man wrestled the suspect to the ground and held him down for 20 to 30 minutes before police arrived.


He said the attacker had said “I want to kill all Muslims” and “kill me, kill me”.


The driver is under arrest on suspicion of attempted murder after leaving one man dead and eight injured. All the victims were Muslim.

“He was screaming, he was saying, ‘I’m going to kill all Muslims, I’m going to kill all Muslims’. He was throwing punches.


“Then we managed to get him on the floor. Then he was saying, ‘Kill me, kill me’. I said, ‘We are not going to kill you. Why did you do that?’ He wouldn’t say anything.”

Darren? He's a bloody psycho': Dad-of-four terror suspect who split from partner six months ago is a heavy-drinking brawler who was thrown out of a pub for cursing Muslims and threatening to 'do some damage' on day before attack


The 47-year-old arrested on suspicion of murder and terror charges is named as Darren Osborne, from Cardiff


Father-of-four Darren Osborne, 47, was named as the man accused of ploughing a van into Muslim worshippers in the early hours of Monday morning.
It is alleged that Osborne - who was not known to police and MI5 - hired an £80-a-day van from South Wales before driving to the Muslim Welfare House in north London.
There, he is accused of mounting the pavement just yards from the Finsbury Park Mosque and mowing down a group of British Muslims.
They were helping Makram Ali, 52, who died minutes later in front of his 26-year-old daughter as those who went to assist him screamed in agony.
Witnesses say that, after the attack, he shouted 'I'm going to kill all Muslims - I did my bit' as he was restrained by members of the community.

Congress Says, Let the Mentally Ill Buy Guns
By THE EDITORIAL BOARD
FEB. 15, 2017

The Senate voted Wednesday to join the House in revoking the rule. It would have required the Social Security Administration to add about 75,000 people, currently on disability support, to the national background check database and deny them gun purchases. These individuals suffer schizophrenia, psychotic disorders and other problems to such an extent that they are unable to manage their financial affairs and other basic tasks without help.

"Obama, he's a piece of ****. I told him to suck on my machine gun. Hey Hillary [Clinton], you might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless *****."

Ted Nugent, 2007


He also recommends decapitating Democrats:

"We need to ride onto that battlefield and chop their heads off in November."

And then there was this bit from then candidate Donald Trump, encouraging his supporters to take a shot at Hillary Clinton:



"Hillary wants to abolish -- essentially abolish the Second Amendment. By the way, if she gets to pick, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don't know," Trump said. "But I tell you what, that will be a horrible day, if Hillary gets to put her judges in, right now we're tied."

And what about when the same theatre company staged Julius Caesar with an Obama stand in? Where was the outrage then?



But Delta's former backing of a production of the same play with Obama standing in for Caesar quickly spread on social media. Since no controversy ignited in response to the Obama version, critics pointed out that Delta's claims of moral disagreement with the Trump edition seemed more like a fearful reaction of losing financial support from conservatives. Delta did not immediately respond to Bustle's request for comment on why it did not revoke funding for the 2012 production featuring Obama.

I actually think this outcome is better for the Democrats in the long term. The Republicans are on the Trumptanic, its starting to go down but they don't fully realize it yet. The longer they stick with him the worse it will get for them. It's best for the Democrats if he stays in power until after the mid term elections.

However, I suspect some of the more attuned Republicans in Congress must be getting nervous from the close races in supposedly safe districts. There are a lot of others that are not so safe as the one in Georgia.

Well I guess about 36% of US voters agree with you. The rest disapprove of Trump.

The Republican vote was down by 7% in that Georgia district since last time, making what was a very safe Republican district in the past (they won by large margins ever since 1979) a fairly close race this time. The Republican candidate barely mentioned Trump in this campaign - I don't think he helped her campaign at all. In fact, I think he hurt it considerably.

Well all the special elections were in very safe Republican districts which the Republicans had won previously by 10%, 20% or 30%.

I remember the elation a lot of people felt when Obama got elected. First colored American President was (and still is) a huge accomplishment. Nobody should downplay that. Then as Obama got settled in the longer he was there the less he seemed to do. Sure he tried to leave a legacy of Obama Care but that whole health care bill still ended up being a shambles in the end. The whole democratic party does need a major shake from the top, in attitude and deeds. To many career politicians that are way past their due dates. Set in their ways and just going through the motions. Talking heads on the TV spouting meaningless rhetoric rather than getting things done. Good on Obama for being the first colored president but he could hardly be called a mover and a shaker. Hillary, well, she went down in flames. She did not take her defeat well and neither did her followers. Sore losers who unfortunately will have an axe to grind as long as Trump is in the W H. Democrats wasting their energy on Trump instead of actually looking for the changes needed from within the party.

Obama made a fatal mistake. When he ran into the deliberate obstructionist policies of the GOP that decided to oppose even bipartisan and Republican ideas such as Romney Care, Obama should have changed tactics rather than trying to appease Republicians and the health insurance companies that take 30 percent off the top just to refuse coverage.

IMHO, he should have just demonstrated that the Medicare and Medicaid acts ( Medicare was a Republican idea initiated under President Eisenhower) was discriminatory by age and simply dropped eligibility age to ZERO and created a single payer system like Canada and hung the health insurance companies out to dry.

Way to much privatization in the American system. It's entrenched because it's lucrative for doctors and the whole industry surrounding it. A bandage applied at a hospital costing 25 cents translates to $25.00 on your bill. Not to mention the fee for seeing the doctor, x-rays etc. Doctors retiring at 55 and their millionaires. Private Insurance companies going along for the ride as there are massive profits to be made. Nobody will change it because the take home pay is to tempting.

Obama;s fatal mistake was earlier, with his first budget proposal. He presented it as a fait accompli that he he went to Republicans for comments, and then ignored them. That got Republicans' backs up and lead to their obstructionist strategy.

Not to pick a side, but that's what history seems to show, based on some PBS Frontline docs I've seen and follow-up reading.

A Nebraska Democratic Party official was removed from his post on Thursday after an audio recording surfaced of him saying he's “glad” House Majority Whip Steve Scalise got shot last week.

Phil Montag, now-former co-chair of the state party’s technology committee, was recorded saying he wishes Scalise, R-La., were “dead.”

“His whole job is to get people, convince Republicans to [expletive] kick people off [expletive] health care. I’m glad he got shot,” Montag said in the audio recording. “I wish he was [expletive] dead.”

A Nebraska Democratic Party official was removed from his post on Thursday after an audio recording surfaced of him saying he's “glad” House Majority Whip Steve Scalise got shot last week.

Phil Montag, now-former co-chair of the state party’s technology committee, was recorded saying he wishes Scalise, R-La., were “dead.”

“His whole job is to get people, convince Republicans to [expletive] kick people off [expletive] health care. I’m glad he got shot,” Montag said in the audio recording. “I wish he was [expletive] dead.”

Utterly unacceptable and it's a good thing that he's been removed from his post.

I'd be willing to bet that whenever a controversial public figure gets assaulted or killed, there are lots of otherwise respectable people chuckling to themselves "Heh, that jerk had it coming".

^ Even on this site, I remember during the airport debate someone saying they wanted to punch Charles Allard in the face.

Granted, Allard never actually got punched in the face by anyone, but had that happened, I'm kind of doubting that the people who were saying stuff like that would switch to having nothing but the most sympathetic thoughts about Charles Allard.

The US way. Loading up on guns and ammo and shooting skills for protection against trigger happy whites, and so on and so on and so on.
