According to CBS News’ Scott Pelley, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise’s shooting in Alexandria, Virginia last week was “to some degree self-inflicted.”
Pelley blamed the ‘hateful rhetoric on the Right’ for the attacks, citing a few extreme examples — but at the same time completely ignoring all of the violent rhetoric the Left has inflicted upon President Trump and the GOP.
“It’s time to ask whether theWednesday was foreseeable, predictable and, to some degree, self-inflicted.”
“Too many leaders, and political commentators, who set an example for us to follow have led us into an abyss of violent rhetoric which, it should be no surprise, has led to violence.”
“Wednesday was not the first time.”
“In, a man with an assault rifle stormed into a Washington-area pizzeria to free child sex slaves whom Hillary Clinton was holding there — or at least that’s what political blog sites had said. He fired into a locked door to discover no children in chains.”
“Sen. Bernie Sanders has called the president the ‘most dangerous in history’. The shooter on Wednesday was a.”
“You might think that no sane person would act on political hate speech, and you’d be right. Trouble is, there are a lot of Americans who struggle with mental illness.”
Here’s an interesting info – the Media Research Center pegged Pelley as the most anti-Trump anchor on the Big Three—CBS, NBC, and ABC. Meanwhile, Rep. Scalise has a long road to recovery ahead of him. He has been in critical condition for days, undergone three surgeries, and was on the verge of death when he arrived at the hospital following the attack. Yet, liberal America says we’re going to slam him because he has a voting record we find to be problematic.
