Who and/or what contributed to the shooter's targeting of Republicans at the ball field today?


Is the viciousness of the vitriol from prominent democrats/media/entertainment personalities toward anyone who opposes their agenda(s) greatly responsible for the targeting of Republican congressman in the D.C. suburb on this Flag Day? Or is their hate speech okay? If we do not hear them openly confess that they've been out of line and are setting a new and respectable course for themselves should we take it as them considering the shooter a hero for their cause? It's despicable to even consider the possibility, but considering the ongoing savageness of well-known democrats...?

    Though your points are important to factor in the shooter did target Reps. Sadly, the over the top anger at Reps from Dems whether they are politicians, news media, or entertainers does have varying degrees of adverse effects on their supporters.

    All true, but not every year are Reps specifically targeted in this manner. The fact that one day after the shooting comedian K. Gifford was given a standing ovation at a public appearance should give everyone much pause for thought.

    But it was what he got in his head from all of the crap going around these days. With people saying how bad the world is going to be with Trump as Pres. Things might change but it won't be the end of the world like some idiots claim.

    The craftiness of accusing others while busying oneself with bad behavior and the movie example are crucial points since they are old tactics that still work. Comedian K.G. being publicly welcomed at an appearance today reveals the leftwing heart.
