    Default Anti Trump Progressive opens fire at Republican baseball practice

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/local...=.1b09b6f7426a

    From the shooters Facebook page: "Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co"
    Another Democrat who takes "fight in the streets" literally.

    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.

    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.

    ^I am not in any way excusing the shooter's action. I condemn the shooter and his actions unreservedly. It was the OP and yourself who are trying to make political hay not me.

    You guys are knocking years off your lives with all this arguing and bickering about politics in a completely different country. Why add all the stress?
    Just give up. You're not going to change the other side's opinion, only make it worse. Having an opinion is great, but only when you have some small amount of control over influencing actions. It's just not worth it.

    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.

    it's no surprise a crazed left-winger would attempt a mass assassination when hate-promoting left wingers are flooding the media with stuff like this:

    I have a feeling Paul Rand might not agree with this statement as much anymore:

    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.”
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/local...=.a8bda4fb4137

    Sanders (Vt.) said Hodgkinson volunteered on his presidential campaign

    It's ironic that the Trump supporters are declaring the left violent and hateful, with the amount of times Trump has called for violence:

    http://mashable.com/2016/03/12/trump.../#wMCMWdwl9iqO

    Even has videos so you can't call it fake news. And this is just at his rallies before election.

    The reality is there are extremists on every side of every issue, and using one example from one view to label a whole group of people as violent is absurd.

    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.

    I am somewhat relieved that the discussion in this thread is about left versus right wing extremists.

    Just imagine if it was an immigrant or Muslim who shot the politicians today instead of a white, American born man?

    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.

    The shooter was identified as James T. Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old home inspector from Illinois who had several minor run-ins with the law in recent years and belonged to a Facebook group called "Terminate the Republican Party."

    It's not hard to see the utter hate / biase put out by the establishment and their media .Their propoganada and brainwashing have an effect in this politically correct / sensitive world ...what they doing is breeding hate . Why you see their minions rioting, burning the American flag , why this witch hunt .

    This year's Bilderberg ...what they discuss , was how they going take down Trump.

    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 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.

    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.

    respect your opinion Ken but have never agree with you. I'm not cater to your demands. If it was Ken's way we all have to post with our real names , there be sorts of retribution for our thoughts and opinions . We be censored . It defeat purpose of this forum .

    With that said when Admin was laid up, certain people were there for , they financially supported, so feel we all have a right.

    I see right through you PRT . I understand the psychology, the spin , the deflection

    People on the left commit the same atrocities as people on the right, however the irritating (and most laughable) part is how the left then claims moral superiority.

    Yup.

    People have given me veiled threats of physical violence and have told me that they would attempt to sabotage my professional career (thereby taking away my hard-earned livelihood) simply because I have an opinion that they disagree with. This form of fascism from the left is really insufferable.

    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 .

    Some would love that control back !

    Not sure how this could be since you use a pseudonym. I doubt MrOilers is your actual name.

    I use a pseudonym as well as on this board at the request of my boss to make sure my personal views are never attributed to the non-profit organization that employs me (for which I am sometimes a spokesperson).

    Only if you think all rich are greedy . I would argue a centralized control , placing all control in few hands is worst...e.g global governance, new world order

    Big reason there so much protest in Russia, his government gain too much control. He's kicking 1.5 million people from their homes to build ' world class ' towers

    Yeah something did profoundly change for me. Last week I dyed my hair auburn. I know, I know, hard to believe. After being many shades (and some of them blonde) I decided to go a shade of red. How long this will last I don't know. In a month or so I will be voting on another color and surprise everyone again.

    This is just one more opportunity for tribalists to engage in sentimentality by the aggrieved, defensive posturing by fellow travellers of the transgressors.

    More of you, whether you call yourselves progressive or not, would be secretly happy if the shoe were on the other foot than you dare admit.

    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.

    "Progressives" and whatever the opposite calls itself are both equally disgusting, and equally deserving of disrespect.

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/wat...gar-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/...y-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.

    There Have Been More Than 150 Mass Shootings in America This Year
    http://fortune.com/2017/06/14/steve-...shooting-2017/
    The violent, high-profile tragedies have understandably captured the nation's attention. But they contribute to 154 mass shootings, 6,880 gun-related deaths, and 13,504 firearm injuries in 2017 alone, according to the watchdog group Gun Violence Archive.

    I'm totally underwhelmed by how the mainstream press has responded to this shooting.

    It's like there's no disincentive to attempted murder as long as the victims are in the "wrong" political party.

    What mainstream press are you referring to? I flipped through many news programs last night and all were discussing the issue in the same light, that this was wrong/sad, and that it's not the way to go about solving issues.

    ^^Are you kidding me, the shooting was on the MSM all day long as the top story.


    Another failed spin on your part to pin this on the media.

    In fact, even FOX news was lambasting Newt Gingrich because he was blaming the left.

    President Donald Trump canceled his 71st birthday plans yesterday to visit terrorism victim Rep. Steve Scalise and his family in the hospital. Very classy and very kind thing to do.

    From what I can see, the press IS NOT acting as though his motives are unclear. Republican partisans claiming that the press is acting as though the motives are unclear is not the same thing.

    We all know the shooter was anti-republican.

    Yeah, he really just fits into a general disgruntled outsider box, who just happened to pick Bernie rather than Trump as his champion against the great undefined enemy.

    /\ No, he was a long time Democrat supporter, he campaigned against Mitt Romney in 2012 and was a prolific letter to the editor writer calling on the government to tax the rich.
    Yes he was a lunatic, but he was a lunatic with strong left wing views.

    He sure was, and belonged to a few hate republican groups.

    I read one story on the incident, on CNN.com, and it seemed pretty clear from that story that he was a Bernie supporter, with strong left-leaning views. Wait... that's fake news because it's on CNN.com, right?

    Also, do you even know who you are quoting with that tweet? Serious question.

    Credit to the New York Times for correcting their piece that incorrectly claimed there was a political link in the 2011 shooting of Gabby Giffords:

    It's encouraging to see that the public calling out the lies in the fake news sometimes works.

    It was a verbal typo. He meant to say 93 people a day.

    You try making an impromptu speech in front of a bunch of reporters and knowing that it is broadcast around the world. Give the guy a break.
