Remember when Steve Scalise was shot and some on the left and in the media insinuated he had it coming and thus deserved it? I do!
Here was @CBSThisMorning wondering if Scalise and his colleagues caused the shooting because of *their* rhetoric…
FLASHBACK -- MSNBC's Johnson: Scalise 'May Have' Spoken to 'White Nationalists,' 'Exacerbated' Tensions…
FLASHBACK: CNN's Kaye Repeats Debunked Claim Scalise Spoke to David Duke Group…
And who could forget when CBS's @ScottPelley insisted that @SteveScalise almost dying was his fault, calling it "to some degree self-inflicted"…
FLASHBACK: Really? PBS Panelist Blames Scalise Shooting on...Newt Gingrich's 90s Rhetoric…
There's more where that came from, but how about we end with the kooks at Salon --> Salon: 'Sociopathic' GOP Should Learn From 'Bigot' Scalise's 'Baptism By Fire'…

Video: Here we go with @brikeilarcnn treating every Republican like the enemy of the people, acting like a Mean Girl with such condescension and venom. Brianna knows she's spewing hatred for 74 million American. Maybe she genuinely does and refuses to see them as people. (1/)
NBD. Just Brianna accusing every GOPer minus Mitt of giving support to terrorism : "All of those Republicans went on to broadly support or to work for president trump's administration, ignoring his nods to extremists, acting like they didn't see his tweets..." (2/2)
Imagine having such hatred for your political opponents like Brianna Keilar does. Other than Mitt Romney (& ostensibly Bulwark/Dispatch/Lincoln Project/RVAT types), she's making the case EVEN people like Ben Sasse, Susan Collins, & Lisa Murkowski are pro-Trump sycophants. (3/3)

#Tucker opens with the reality of how our news media have seemingly spent the last five years almost exclusively obsessed with Donald Trump. The focus on really anything else has been slim to none. And yet, they're continuing to cover him like he won even though he lost (1/)
#Tucker asks viewers whether it's worth for Donald Trump to win every election and then Ivanka every one thereafter, but we then lose our freedoms forged by the Founding Fathers: "The point of the Republican Party is not to protect the personal reputations of its leaders."
#Tucker urges conservatives to instead turn away from squabbling about whether Trump won this state or that state to the fact that "[t]he Trump protest of the Capitol yesterday is already being used as a pretext for an unprecedented crackdown on civil liberties." (3/)

THREAD: @EWErickson's take on yesterday's act of terrorism (committed by Trump supporters and NOT Antifa) contains so many amazing points. I have zero patience for those saying this was orchestrated by Antifa cause you're both deranged and being duped.
Now, some quotes.

“You behave the same damn way [as Antifa]. You have become what you hate. You stormed the greatest deliberative body the world has seen and demanded Mike Pence come out so you can hang him only a week or so after Lin Wood said he should be killed.”
“The faces of the people, some of them were well-known neo-Nazis. One of them is a longtime Trump supporter. You had Trump supporters livestreaming themselves. You’re going to tell me it was Antifa when well-known Trump supporters...were live-streaming themselves?"

Make no mistake. The liberal media will make sure that there are Enemies Lists for every single conservative and Republican who isn't part of the Bulwark and Lincoln Project. Many have them have already decided that our denunciations mean nothing and are disingenuous.
For them, if you weren't opposing Trump from the moment he came down the escalator, you're someone who's less-than-human and deserves to be shamed out of political life.

That's no way to run a country.
You might see CNN and MSNBC personalities insist they believe in a two-party system and are saddened by the disgraceful behavior from Republican voters today. But in reality, their rhetoric for years has shown they don't see any need for another party besides their own.

I'll say it -- it's not looking good, folks.
And there's one person to blame for this. Some of you will be denial, but deep down, you'll agree with me.
Earth to everyone saying Mitch McConnell is the person I'm blaming here, you're wrong.

Answer? Donald Trump. That's who's to blame here.

THREAD: This statement from @RepRaskin and his wife @SBloomRaskin about their late son Tommy is the most important thing you'll read this week and it's not even close. I couldn't help but think while reading this that this could have been me.…
He comes across in this as someone who was a friend to all, despised cliques, and found such joy in debate and the free exchange of ideas: "On Prom Night, he threw a dinner party for 24 fellow students, including classmates who had no date...He hated cliques and social snobbery."
He seemed like THE guy to go to bookstores with: "He ordered and devoured books on the Civil War and Maryland’s history in it, World War II and resistance to Nazism, Jewish history, libertarianism, moral philosophy, the history of the Middle East conflict, peace movements....."
