Leftists Deflect Blame over Shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise on Twitter


Recommended Posts


In the aftermath of the shooting of Representative Steve Scalise during a practice for the annual congressional baseball game, some leftists took to social media to deflect any blame for the hateful rhetoric preached against President Donald Trump and Republicans since the November election.

New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush shifted the blame from the shooter to the precedents that President Trump has set for discourse in the United States.



Others were less subtle. Malcolm Harris, a regular contributor to the New Republic who also has been published by the Washington Post and Salon Magazine, claimed that the shooter was merely acting in self-defense due to Scalise’s position on healthcare.

If the shooter has a serious health condition then is taking potshots at the GOP house leadership considered self defense?



Here are some other responses from progressives on social media:

Alexandria is the direct result of Scalise's votes and teabagging beliefs. Love karma. This is what you vote for trumpsters. No whining

Yes, they do endorse these acts.
Yes, they did incite them.
Yes, the media IS responsible and actively cheering this on.



CNN reporter Jim Acosta was forced to quickly correct a tweet after falsely suggesting that President Trump did not meet Scalise at the hospital following the shooting.

No responsibility, but plenty of consequences.
