It’s not the perp, it’s the “climate”

Once it emerged that the Scalise shooter was a rabid leftist, the left shifted to blaming the right (see this and this) for the “climate of hate” it had created, ignoring the fact that most political shooters in recent years have been firmly on the left.

This is an old, old story. I recall it from the Kennedy assassination, and it still goes on in connection with that event. When Oswald turned out to be a dyed-in-the-wool leftist, the culprit became the right’s “climate of hate” in Dallas.

So when someone on the left does something bad, that person is only responding to the hate-signals from the right, wafting through the air.

    CO2 emissions from left of center are first order forcings of catastrophic anthropogenic climate change. Left of center are trying to sell indulgences (“carbon credits”) by equating a human rights issue: the right to life, with the self-serving violence of redistributive and retributive change.

    Don’t hold your breathe waiting for the Left to look in the mirror.

    Three attitudes are prevalent.
    The 40% of self-described ‘solid liberals’* who take pride in being an American are in willful denial of “the fruits” of what they support.
    The 60% of ‘solid liberals’ who take no pride in being an American think those on the right have it coming.
    The hard core Left could care less, already being prepared to exterminate the 25+Million** Americans who cannot be ‘reeducated’.

    Starbucks customer says she was bullied for supporting Trump

    On a day when lawmakers from both sides of the aisle in Washington are asking Americans to unite, a loyal Starbucks customer says she was targeted for supporting Donald Trump. Starbucks said they are making sure this incident won’t happen again.

    “I don’t know what politics has to do with getting a cup of coffee,” Kayla Hart said.

    Hart walked in to Starbucks on East Boulevard in Dilworth on Wednesday morning, wearing a Donald Trump t-shirt. Instead of being greeted with a smile, Kayla said the cashier laughed and her order was labeled with a political message, mocking her support for the president.

    Journo Says ‘Violent Resistance’ Should Be More Organized Than Baseball Shooting

    A Huffington Post writer appeared to criticize the baseball shooter for poor planning Wednesday, saying “violent resistance” has to be more organized to “work.”

    “For violent resistance to work it’d need to be organized,” writer Jesse Benn tweeted. “Individual acts can be understandable, but likely counterproductive/ineffective.”

    Benn identifies himself as a “member of the intolerant left” on his Twitter profile, and links to his author page on the Huffington Post, where he is published as recently as December, 2016.

    its not like squeeky fromm could get near again…

    On the same day that one of their own shot Congressman Steve Scalise, their defiant narrative moved from cries for Trump’s impeachment to Obstruction of Justice accusations courtesy of special counsel appointee Robert Mueller, long ago written into the ongoing narrative to take Trump down by any manufactured means available.
    =======================

    Meanwhile, how many would-be assassins they continue to stoke are being baby sat by Art in the Park’s version of “Julius Caesar” with an actor made up as President Donald Trump getting offed onstage every night at Central Park?

    Libs been giving it standing ovations

    A while back i said that you cant get elected unless you have some dirt on you cause they wont let you take officve unless they can ruin you… so your safe to them. but what if trump isnt dirty… what if he has been on the upa and up? what if he is a real christian as his daughter may be a real hasdim…

    THEN WHAT?

    Bloodshed is the collective goal of the Progressives trying to claw their way back from exile.

    Even as they prepare for tonight’s Annual Congressional Baseball Game, the narrative continues to be written by Resistance leaders.

    The moral of their narrative is that you aren’t ALLOWED to have a president of whom they don’t approve, whether duly elected or not.

    The MSM will deliver the message that the out-of-control hatred Progressives bear for President Trump HIS FAULT and not theirs.

    and as i said in the other thread…
    the sociopaths will blame the victim to justify their hate and actions…

    He had it coming, he had it coming
    He only had himself to blame

    Go ahead, ask her!
    Ha ha ha!

  7. Gothamite Says:

    Aside from the NY Times editorial, I didn’t see a big move by the left to attribute this to the “climate of hate”. Yes, they blame Trump’s campaign rhetoric, but focusing on hate speech and actions could boomerang on them. I’ve seen much more effort at focusing on the gun control issue, and mocking the idea that good guys with guns could stop bad guys with guns.

    Of course thats why Donald Trump was ultimately responsible for Kathy Griffin’s poor decisions and not Kathy Griffin herself.

  10. Dave Says:

    Ronaldson your pathetic list proves nothing, if anything it empathizes the fact that the left wing media will keep track of all right wing shootings and use them to score political points but cover up all shootings by left wing nuts to create this false idea that only right wing kills. I don’t have the benefit of the MSM to compile me a list of all left wing killers, even off the top of my head i can come up with a few.

    Cho Seung Hui
    Elliot Rodger
    Vester Lee Flanagan II
    Micah Xavier Johnson
    Ismaaiyl Brinsley
    Hodgkinson

    and i didn’t even include the jihadists the left love to embrace.

  11. parker Says:

    Its the same old same old. The left accuses the right of what it does. Yes, there are dangerous people on the far right, people full of hatred. But it is the left, from Stalin to Mao to Pol Pot, ectera, ectera who slaughter millions in the name of utopia. And don’t mention Hitler as being on the right, he wasn’t.

  12. Harry the Extremist Says:

    I also dont see Republican politicians and pundits ginning up anywhere near the level of incivility. Its a wonder this hasnt become more widespread, and I feel it will be.

  13. Dave Says:

    The real problem is not that one side of political spectrum kill more than the other, but the fact that both sides kill just as many as the other but the media chooses intentionally to only condemn and demonize when the killing is committed by the right and embrace and even go as far as to rationalize the motives, creating sympathy for the killer with humanizing angle of reporting when the killing is committed by someone from the left. both far right and far left are dangerous and it is even more dangerous when the main stream media chooses to embrace one side which by all means just as dangerous if not more than the other. How many times have we seen in history that a movement supposedly started to eliminate injustice in society turned horribly wrong and the oppressed turn around and become the oppressor? The Nazi probably thought they were victims too and the WW2 was started to RESIST the evil globalists. just because you think you are on the righteous side doesn’t mean you are, Mao thought he was on the side of good eliminating all evil capitalists who was opposing his people. get a grip man useful idiots.

  14. Richard Aubrey Says:

    The left lies. It favors any tactic no matter how vile. It has at least two standards.
    One of its greatest strengths is the right’s self-imposed obligation to act with at least a modicum of morality.
    Make the opponent live up to its own rules, said Alinsky.
    Unspoken is that the left has no intention of living up to any standards.
    So arguing as to whether the left is being dishonest, arguing with lefties about it, is a waste of time. Even the argument about dishonesty will be dishonest. Wasting our time and energy is a win for them.
    Forget being surprised and shocked when the left lies, cheats, uses violence. It makes you look silly. There is no leverage there. We should know it by now.

  15. Dave Says:

    rule number one for creating a convincing comic book villain is to create a character who is obsessively devoted to his goal, someone who believes he is the most righteous person on earth and whatever he does he believe he does it for the ultimate good and the future of mankind. Lex Luthor believes superman is an alien threat to mankind, Magneto believes in order to secure the future of his kind, the oppressed mutant from the hands of the evil homo sapiens, he needs to eradicate the obsoleted race, mankind. the left in the west is on the path that lead to atrocities like the cultural revolution or the killing fields. While accusing trump as hitler, when are they going come to the realization that they are closing to Hitler than Trump ever will be.

  16. Big Maq Says:

    Not that there needs to be more proof, but the NYT editorial is rather disgraceful in linking Sarah Palin to the Gabby Giffords (and other victims’) shooting.

    Pure blue vs red in action.

    “from Stalin to Mao to Pol Pot, ectera, ectera who slaughter millions in the name of utopia. And don’t mention Hitler as being on the right, he wasn’t.” – parker

    A good point.

    When it comes to authoritarian states of any sort, there may not be much to distinguish left from right, as they ALL involve significant state intervention, and freedom significantly curtailed.

    Ronaldson:
    Here is a short list of western Right wing/Christian terror attacks.
    Compare apples to apples: shooting of an elected official in the US. As far as I can tell, in none of your examples was an elected US politician targeted.
    One problem with your having such an extensive list going back a quarter century that it would be rather easy to compose a counter-list. Neither the counter-list nor your list would address the issue: targeting an elected official in the US.

    Random check of one of your examples:
    USA – Pittsburgh police officers (2009).
    Gunman Kills 3 Police Officers in Pittsburgh.

    PITTSBURGH — In a scene that neighbors described as a war zone, a gunman fatally shot three police officers on Saturday morning as they responded to a domestic dispute between a mother and her son….
    Chief Harper said the police had been called to the home at least twice before for domestic problems; neighbors said the visits were much more frequent — at least a half dozen calls in recent years when Mr. Poplawski and his mother got into fights.

    Typically, the police “would come and be the peacemaker, and it would be over,” said Geraldine Lejpras, who lives across the street from the Poplawskis. “But not this time.”

    Unknowingly, the officers walked into a deadly trap. Mr. Poplawski, wearing a bullet-proof vest, was armed with an AK-47 rifle, a .22 long rifle and a pistol.

    Your characterization of this as an example of “Right wing/Christian terror attacks” is, to put it mildly, rather far-fetched.

    At least you didn’t try to pin the Tea Party label on Joseph Stack, who flew a plane into an IRS office. That was rather problematic considering some of the content of his suicide note:

    The communist creed: From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.

    The capitalist creed: From each according to his gullibility, to each according to his greed.

    Not very Tea Party, that. But that didn’t stop the left from calling Stack a Tea Party person.

  19. Dave Says:

    Question to all liberals, if you find yourself in serious trouble aboard, which president would more likely to take action to rescue you, Obama or Trump? which president would more likely to left you in a foreign country in a coma and threaten your family to shut up in order to not create conflicts with other nations.

    Neo had posted something (I believe it was shortly after Trump’s inauguration) about a married couple (?or couples?) she knew who had split up due to politics.

    As I recall, the wife’s point of view was “How can my husband support a man who is Worse Than Hitler? I am literally afraid to stay in the same house with him.”

    I recall that a commenter at the time questioned HOW such a woman (who has known and lived with her husband for a decade or more) can suddenly decide that The Liberal Narrative of TrumpenFuhrer is more-to-be-believed than the totality of her prior years of actual in-real-life experience and shared history and companionship with her husband.

    It would seem that WHATEVER the key to brainwashing is, our Lefty Media has it and is using it
    successfully. And it’s terrifying to think that there are many otherwise-normal-seeming people who are
    vulnerable to this “mental virus” being spread by the MSM.

    Is it deliberate and intentional, meant to trigger unstable people to violence? Is it just an editorial desire for provocative headlines that will “get more clicks and eyeballs” and therefore increase ratings?

    I’m not liking the “Interesting Times” we’re living in.

  21. n.n Says:

    First, Americans are not Pro-Choice. There is no constitutional right to deny human lives deemed unworthy. Americans do not support elective actions, including: elective abortion, elective wars, elective regime changes, etc. on principle. People who commit elective abortions are either progressive, liberal, or independent.

    Second, denying life deemed unworthy is a leftist cause. So is [class] diversity or judging people by the “color of their skin”. Americans judge people by the “content of their character”, so [class] diversity policy is an offensive quasi-religious/moral/legal doctrine under the Pro-Choice Church.

    Third, premeditated termination of human life (e.g. elective abortion) for causes other than self-defense is a human rights, not political rights, issue. Unfortunately, progressives, liberals, and libertarians, too, have resumed and normalized the quasi-religious rite of aborting human life. This gross violation of human rights will either be settled through a civil war, as was [class] diversity and redistributive change (a.k.a. “slavery”), or through a religious/moral/scientific awakening.

    Does anyone actually believe in spontaneous human conception a.k.a. “viability”? Has anyone actually seen a stork delivery human babies?

    Anyway, without principled alignment, the perpetrator is either a leftist by virtue of their adoption of [class] diversity or an individual acting of their own freewill.

    The problem for the west is we are immune to right wing virus after what we went through in the Second World War but we are not immune from and vunlnerble to the left wing virus simply because The west has never suffered any major loss from socialism/communism. Every monster began a person who thought he was wronged and every evil political movement started a group of people who thought they were victims and at the blink of elimination. Far right and far left is two sides of the same coin. One side believes the white race is under attack and if they don’t do something to resist the invasion white people would go extinct. on the other hand the other side believes they are under the attack from a coalition of white supremacists, still living in the dark age christians, gun nuts, evil greedy top 1% capitalists and climate change deniers that if they don’t do something about it they would go extinct. Unfortunately I don’t think the west will ever learn the horror of socialism/communism until they truly have suffered through it.

    But the worst thing, and I think this is overlooked, the two parties … speak about the politics in apocalyptic terms. If the other guy wins, it’s the end of the republic. If the other guy wins, it’s the end of the world. The man who did the shooting yesterday is a man who bought into that quite literally.

    I mean you speak about it hyperbolically but when those are the stakes when you say unless we stop Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, the republic will not survive, then that justifies anything. That’s the language, the ideology, the rationale of terrorists, the fate of the world hangs on this, and it’s up to the leadership to say these are policies, this is not the fate of the republic.” – Charles Krauthammer

    Dave, it’s not “one side.” There is one small, very small, fringe who believe that the white race is under attack.The paid mobs of Leftists are much larger They are screaming about ‘fascism’ a movement in favor of stricter government control, and applying the term to people who favor, even tepidly, reducing government control. The mass media are shouting this day after day.

    Now, President Trump is being investigated for firing James Comey, who stated he was not investigating Trump, as a way to block his investigation of Trump. This is not logical in any conceivable way. Who can possibly see equivalence in this?

    The Leftist media, which is nearly all of them, actually blame candidate Trump’s rhetoric for creating a climate of hate. WTF? Careless speech is NOT hate speech. e.g. It is true that a non-extant border control allows all manner of criminals to enter our country at will. Anyone who lives in a Southwestern border state reads about these incidents all the time. The drug gangs, the more minor criminals, the hit and run uninsured, known but never mentioned in the media, are a serious threat to health and safety.The contagious diseases we are seeing reappear, that we had not even heard of for decades, are not the fault of individual poor Mexicans and Central Americans, but no nation can long survive without a border. This is not hatred of anyone. It is simply practical reality.

    The paid mobs attacked so many Trump rallies that the Useful Idiots, Lenin’s term for them, not mine, came to believe that Trump was violent. The media would report that “Violence erupted at a Trump rally.” The people who never read past headlines see the rallies as violent, rather than under violent attack. Phony equivalence is nothing remotely like being fair and balanced.
