Why is it liberals didn’t have anything to say about gun control after a Bernie Bro shot up baseball field and nearly killed Congressman Steve Scalise, in an anti-Trump revenge shooting?
The reason why is because Democrats strategically use tragedy for their political benefit.
The “Bernie Bro” shooting did not fit their narrative, so they remained silent.
However, after the Florida school shooting they saw and seized their opportunity to push their warped and twisted narrative.
Gosh what could possibly have been the motivation of Alexandria shooter James Hodgkinson, the Bernie-Sanders-loving, Russia-collusion-obsessed liberal activist whose Facebook page boasts about his participation in the Climate March on DC, celebrates the wisdom of Neil Degrasse Tyson, “likes” a cartoon showing Steve Scalise to be in league with the Ku Klux Klan, thinks the U.S. is secretly run by the Koch Brothers, and who signed a petition with the left wing online pressure group Change.org claiming that “Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time To Destroy Trump & Co”?
Unfortunately, he left so few clues that we may never know. And it’s not just me who’s puzzled. So too is one of America’s most respected veteran news analysts, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer:
Absolutely. But suppose we were to hazard a wild flying guess, here’s what I think. I think it might possibly be the case that those guys practicing baseball were targeted because they were Republicans.
What’s more, I suspect that one of the reasons Hodgkinson found himself able to take out what one witness called an “AK-47-type weapon” and aim upwards of 50 rounds at a group of unarmed men playing a ball game is that he didn’t think of them as viable human beings. To him, they were just a form of vermin to be exterminated; they were a threat to the U.S and, as far as the gunman was concerned, he was doing his country a favor.
Where did he get this idea? I cannot imagine. But here are some things I found being circulated on social media by impeccable liberal types recently.
This one is from a fairly famous Irish comedy scriptwriter called Graham Linehan, responsible for such lighthearted cult comedy series as Father Ted and The IT Crowd.
Here’s another lovable liberal, identity censored unfortunately:

Barron Trump is wearing a shirt that reads "The Expert" and I just threw up in my mouth a little.

Oh and here’s one of the great comediennes putting paid to the outrageous notion that women can’t be just as funny as men…
I really didn’t have to look hard for this stuff. It’s everywhere.
We’re told by leftists that, no really, the right is just as bad. Why remember, what happened to Congresswoman Giffords…
Well yes, actually, I do remember.
I remember how desperately the liberal-left MSM sought to blame the act of a random nutcase on what they insisted was the “inflammatory rhetoric” used by Republicans.
But that when providing actual evidence of this “inflammatory rhetoric”, about the best the liberals could come up with was that a Sarah Palin campaign website used crosshairs to symbolize the Democrat politicians she was trying to unseat (not kill, please note; not execute; but just boot out of office using the democratic electoral system), that the word “targeted” even when used metaphorically smacked dangerously of firearms, and that maybe talk show hosts like Rush Limbaugh spoke a bit roughly sometimes about the liberal-left.
And that was it. That was the best they could do.
Can you imagine what a field day the liberal left would be having right now if, instead of Republicans it had been a group of Democrat congressmen shot by a right-wing terrorist?
Well no, actually you probably can’t for the simple reason that the right doesn’t do nasty like the left does.
I’m not saying there aren’t psychotic killers with right-wing affiliations out there. (We had one in the UK last year – the man who murdered MP Jo Cox) But what the left never manages successfully to prove – though Lord only knows, they try hard enough – is that the thing that radicalizes these loons is an aggressive right-wing eco-system of inflammatory media.
That’s because there isn’t one.
