Wait, what? The bomber is a right-wing white male Trump-loving conservative and this isn’t a false flag after all? Who would have guessed (besides everyone who has a brain)?
“But he’s just a person with a mental problem who doesn’t represent Trump supporters as a whole!”
Right, right — On his own, without any encouragement from all the people whose posts he plastered all over his van, he decided completely and with no reason whatsoever to target the exact people President Trump has been vilifying constantly. Pure absolute coincidence.
Look, the internal terrorist violence these days always comes from the right. There have been hundreds of attacks on abortion clinics and doctors killed. A nazi drove through a crowd and killed someone. Someone flew a plane into an IRS building, killing many, and someone else blew up a government building in Kansas city. Someone tried to murder a Democratic Congresswoman and shot her in the head. The other day a white man went into a Krogers and targeted and killed black people. The President has praised violence against his enemies.
“Yeah, but one time, years ago, a crazy liberal guy shot at Congresspeople at a baseball game.”
Ah, one example! And that person based his actions on the Democrat’s call for violence — wait, hold on. I can’t find any examples of prominent Democratic politicians or media people calling for violence.
The fact that this was so predictable is the point, isn’t it? These crazy lunatics with easy access to guns listen to the conspiracy-minded Republicans calling for violence and do what they’re told, because they think they’re doing good — that they’re doing what their leaders want them to. And perhaps they are.
There is no equivalence on the left.
“It’s mental illness, I tell ya!”
Yep, mental illness can affect anyone. That explains why these things are always equally distributed between men and women, black and white, liberal and conservative — oh wait. My bad. It’s always the conservative white men, isn’t it?
I long for the days when disagreement with those on the other side of the political divide was based on facts, realism, and the joined desire to make our country a better place with the disagreements being over how to accomplish that. These days, it’s a divide between good and evil.
