Trump critics seized on the shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue to score political points ahead of the midterms.
Liberals love mass shootings because it gives them a chance to go on offense in the gun control debate.
But what one MSNBC contributor said about Rush Limbaugh will leave you speechless.
The left leapt at the chance to use the mass shooting in Pittsburgh to smear Trump and other conservatives for “hate speech.”
MSNBC’s liberal Republican Steve Schmidt claimed Limbaugh – and other conservative media personalities – had “blood on their hands” for triggering radicalized individuals.
Political analyst Steve Schmidt declared on MSNBC on Monday evening that conservative media figures and outlets, including Breitbart News, had “blood on their hands” in the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh on Saturday that claimed eleven lives.
Schmidt, a former campaign manager for the late Sen. John McCain who now backs the Democrats, said on All In with Chris Hayes:
Kellyanne Conway, despicably, today goes on national television, she said, well, this shooter’s movies were because there is an antireligious sentiment. No, ma’am. The propaganda industry that she commands, with the vile president that she serves, abetted by Mark Levin, and Rush Limbaugh, and Breitbart, and NewsBusters and Judicial Watch and all the rest of them, have blood on their hands for the incitements that they have made that have triggered and radicalized these crazy people. It is deliberate in intent. He scapegoats minority populations. He alleges conspiracies. He creates a sense of shared and virtuous victimhood, positions himself as the avenger, and there is no cost too high, so long as it benefits his narcissism, so long as it benefits him politically.
Schmidt is a liberal Republican who supports Barack Obama style gun control, amnesty and homosexual marriage.
He is most famous for running John McCain’s losing campaign in 2008 and stabbing Sarah Palin in the back in the book “Game Change.”
But this time he crossed the line.
He blamed Mark Levin – who is Jewish – as well Breitbart – which was founded by two people of Jewish decent – for an evil bigot killing people because they were Jewish.
This goes beyond Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Schmidt’s type of rhetoric against Republicans is what many people believe inspired the Bernie Sanders supporter to try and assassinate Republican members of Congress.
The shooter was a big Rachel Maddow fan and consumed media where Republicans were regularly smeared as Nazis and traitors.
Do you agree that Rush Limbaugh and others have blood on their hands for the synagogue shooting?
