The shooter was a Bernie Sanders supporter and Facebook no longer has his page up...Might be embarrassing to the cause you know...But enough about the jerkwood shooter, I blame some of this on the shooter but I also blame a lot of this on the left that has kept their base stirred up since that day in November when Trump beat the PIAP* and ruined her coronation as the first female president. The media and the left has stirred up their base to a fever pitch, they have encouraged their antifa movement to attack republicans in the street. I have blogged about this as have many others about the lack of decency shown. They have demonized their ideological opponents to such a degree that it is encouraged for the left to attack the right and beat them up, ruin their careers and now shoot them. When you believe that your opponents are subhumans and that because they are bad people, they deserve everything that happens to them.
I and many of my fellow bloggers, like Old NFO and Peter whom a couple of days ago did a blog post about the "house divided" post and it was well done. We have come to a point that we are not talking to each other anymore, we are talking past each other. I honestly believe that the Left denegrates us, they believe that they are our "betters"
I blame the vitriol and hate on the Media and the left, they are trying to negate the results of an election that they honestly believe that they should have won. It doesn't matter that they ran the crappiest candidate possible and tried to force the candidate down our throats because they believe that it was "Her turn" and she would continue the journey of socialism that they have in mind for us.
I am not sure how this will end but unless the rhetoric is toned down, the future will not be a pleasant one for many people.
