Is it getting hot?
Guy, known lefty, older type, went ballistic. IF the media is right. It seems strange to me that in less than 12 hours, MSMs already have a name, pics, and history, as well as motive and intent; and yet (!) They still look to blame others. I remark on such because of a comment made by a talking head on FOX that I caught in passing. She stated (and I have to ad lib here a bit)”if anything, the blame shouldn’t fall on Bernie Sanders, because he was not the presidential candidate.”
Spin spin spin spin spin till the plebes get dizzie and can’t tell up from down.
Lady, the only, ONLY, person to blame, in any act of violence, is the person that DID the violence. This ain’t got a damned thing to do with the elections other than the fact of the lefties being piss-poor losers.
One thing the same talking head stated was a lack of trust/respect between Dems/Repubs. 56%/42% against respectively, per her quoted poll numbers. I won’t even contemplate accuracy in that statement, but one only needs look at all the (rather extreme) rise in Lefty protests since November, as well as the increase of violence with such, to assess that there is some truth there. A problem is VERY apparent.
I don’t play on social media like facepalm, or squeakbirds, I rarely use my GAB either (though this is getting linked there this run), so I can’t tell if there is a rise in the vitriol or not. And it would be hard to tell unless one were subscribed/friended to those not like-minded persons. (No thanks, stupid people give me piles and avoidance of such is critical in keeping me off deathrow.) (Note, I haven’t even checked the pulse at Gab yet, it isn’t exactly one of my go to tools for information.)
Anywhoos, lets do a quick AAR from the information that has been currently leaked, and assess what we are seeing.
- Guy is older. Not one of the Millennial types.
- Semi-auto though ‘witnesses’ are claiming full auto. I have my doubts, though a trigger happy shooter can give the illusion of full auto.
- Came with multiple mags, so he knew A) he was going to a target rich area, or B)knew he was a pisspoor shot or, C) both A and B.
- None killed and only 5 injured and only one of those serious, according to media.(supports B in prior point)
- One lone person (media had not mentioned Whom, last I checked) with a handgun, bought some time for everyone else to take cover.
- The media has asked why they didn’t gang up on him with baseball bats. I have only to say “Don’t bring your fists to a knife fight and don’t bring a knife to a gun fight.” And if ya do, KNOW you WILL get badly hurt at the very least. The senators actually did the smart thing, amazingly.
All in all, I have to say, a really badly thought out attack, even if he did some research on his targets. (Unless he had been fed a certain amount of information, who knows.) I won’t delve into how he could have done a better job of it, other than target practice every weekend until he knew his weapon and its character. (Oh, audder point! Dude is from The Socialist State of Illinois. How’d he get a damned gun?!!?!) Nope, no need to feed any silly thoughts into some moonbat types. The less they know of tactics, shoot n move, etc, the better. Especially if shit like this starts to spread. It may be the “first shot” of a civil war going hot. I doubt it, but then,,,,
Keep eyeballing the world and keep preppin’. We are only beginning entrance into the crazy years.
