Claiming Trump’s Rhetoric Inspires Mass Murder

By L. Brent Bozell III

The first question on everyone’s lips was: Why? Why did that El Paso monster murder 22 and injure another 26? What could explain this evil? It didn’t take long to discover that the shooter had apparently published a four-page “manifesto” in which he proclaimed, “this attack is a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas.”

And just like that it was President Trump’s fault. The Democrats and their leftist friends in the press are blaming Trump personally. They have declared as fact that his rhetoric about immigrants directly caused violence … and death.

How dare they!

How can they imply that the president of the United States had whispered encouragement into the ears of mass shooters? If you think we’re exaggerating, judge for yourself. The examples are proliferating by the minute.

On Sunday morning’s “Good Morning America,” ABC reporter Jonathan Karl insisted: “The bottom line is this president has had rhetoric on immigration and on immigrants that has been deeply divisive. And this is going to be something that he is going to have to answer for.”

Hours later, on “This Week With George Stephanopoulos,” Karl asked Trump’s acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, about the discussion of an “invasion” of immigrants: “Isn’t this kind of rhetoric, and especially in light of what we’ve just seen — isn’t it just dangerous?” Mulvaney tried to say the rhetoric is just as hot on the left. Karl didn’t budge. He responded: “What do you say to Americans who look at what happened in El Paso and say that the president’s rhetoric is in part to blame? What do you say to those Americans? You know there are many.”

 

On NBC's "Meet the Press," host Chuck Todd announced over the dramatic theme music: "The gunman posting an anti-immigrant screed online. This comes after a month of President Trump stoking racial resentment."

Connect the dots.

On Monday's "Morning Joe," host Joe Scarborough opened by insisting, "It takes a great deal of denial on the part of any Donald Trump supporter to not hear this continued hateful language ... and then to try to pretend that what happened in El Paso wasn't connected directly to the hate speech of Donald J. Trump."

"(C)onnected directly"?

On Tuesday morning, his wife dove headfirst into the shallow waters of left-wing hysteria regarding mass murders, saying, "this is a president who seems to want these things." Even in the lead-up to the president's speech in which he addressed the shootings and called for unity, CBS correspondent Weijia Jiang painted Trump as trying to "respond to those claims that he is to blame for what happened in El Paso."

None of these people mentioned the ecological or socialist splinters of the El Paso shooter's alleged screed, like where he claimed there are too many humans on the planet draining our resources. "(I)f we can get rid of enough people, then our way of life can be more sustainable," the screed said. It didn't match their party line.

These El Paso exploiters then couldn't connect any dots when it came to the Dayton shooter. He reportedly posted on a Twitter account that he was a "leftist" and said things like, "I want socialism, and I'll not wait for the idiots to finally come round to understanding." He wouldn't vote for Kamala Harris: "Harris is a cop — Warren I'd happily vote for."

Were Sean Hannity to blame Elizabeth Warren for the Dayton shooting, he would be banished from polite society.

The radical left is out of control. The supposed "moderators" of our national conversation are incapable of moderation. There are no boundaries of honesty, decency or accuracy that they haven't plowed through in their loathing of this president.

  1. Idiots abound. Honestly, everything the Dems try to blame on someone else always ends up pointing directly back at them. I hear more and more that people believe the Dems are responsible for the shootings. Makes sense too since they are the sick socialist/ commie wannabes who want to strip our rights one at a time. They know once they dearm us it will be easier to take the rest.

    If more legal citizens carry a firearm, shootings will drop drastically. Time to bring our Constitutional Rights back to where they were meant to be and stay.

    1. Russ, I completely agree with your statement. The do nothing Dems are trying to take away all our rights and do away with our constitution. We need to have more law abiding, responsible people to get a gun, a concealed weapons permit and “pack and carry” So maybe the next time innocent unarmed good people will be safer. Maybe we should demand that every Dem, tell their security to carry water guns for their protection. Sounds fair to me.

    2. Russ,

      If you take a closer look at who was responsible for ALL (or most) of these “shootings”, you will find that they were either disgruntled DEMON-CRATS, or children OF Disgruntled Demon-crats.
      I say disarm DEMON-CRATS and the country will be safer.
      There is a “list” out here of who did the shootings, but because they were all DEMON-CRATS, the list keeps getting removed from the net.

    3. But they say it anyway…they are shouting over your head to the feeble minded brainwashed ninnies that make up the main audience of the main sewer stream fake media who honestly believe the drivel they are being force fed is “gospel”….

  2. All one has to do is actually LOOK and LISTEN to WHOM is causing all the division and discourse in this country.
    (THE DEMOCOMMUNISTS.) They are the party of HATE, and OBSTRUCTION. AND HAVE DONE NOTHING since POTUS TRUMP was elected. They alone are TERRIFIED that all their nefarious deeds, CORRUPTION, and pilfering of OUR taxpayer dollars to fund their cushy lifestyles is being EXPOSED under the leadership of one DONALD J. TRUMP and his administration. Little by little, more CORRUPTION is being brought into the daylight. The DEMO-RATS are beginning to panic…hence all the FAKE NEWS, FAKE “collusion” charges, FAKE “whistleblowers”, FAKE UNCONSTITUTIONAL “impeachment” attempts by the DEMOCOMMUNISTS (since even BEFORE PRESIDENT TRUMP was sworn in) that see their PRECIOUS “status-quo” of living off “We the People” coming to an END.

    1. The “political” establishment is the problem…their agenda that was coming to fruition, the T.P.P. would have been the final nail to complete the “gutting” of your manufacturing sector…Trump foiled their plans. For over 40 years the main sewer stream fake media has been running interference for these felons and it is obvious to the astute observer that they are pulling out ALL the stops to try and get things back on track…Face facts the USA and Britain have been “mauled” and they would have been “erased” in a short space of time…BREXIT came too late??? Trump in the nick of time??? The fingerprints of the UN and the EU…both “unelected bodies” made up of bureaucratic toadies… are all over this.

    2. YOU ARE SO RIGHT AND ONE OF THE REASONS SOME REPUBLICANS DON’T LIKE THE PRESIDENT IS BECAUSE IN HIS 2ND TERM HE IS GOING TO ENACT A TWO TERM 6 YEAR AND AN 8 YEAR FOR THE SENATE AND CONGRESS. ALSO THAT UPON LEAVING OFFICE THEY WILL ONLY RECEIVE A 25% PNSION AND HAVE TO PAY FOR THEIR HEALTH COVERAGE. WE THE PEOPLE ARE TIRED OF ALL THE POLITICIANS GETTING WAY BETTER BENEFITS THAN THE AVERAGE WORKER. WE THE PEOPLE ARE TIRED OF HAVING TO FIGHT WITH OUR EMPLOYERS FOR A SMALL RAISE, WHILE THE POLITICIANS VOTE FOR THEIR OWN SALARY AND BENEFIT INCREASES. OUR COUNTRY IS GETTING BACK ON TRACK BUT NOT AS QUICKLY AS PRESIDENT TRUMP WOULD LIKE IT TO HAPPEN, AND HAS TRIED TO MAKE IT HAPPEN. THE DEMOCRATS HAVE NOT BEEN DOING THEIR JOBS IN THE LEAST SINCE PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP WAS ELECTED. THEY REFUSE TO SIT DOWN AND FIX OUR BROKEN IMMIGRATION LAWS, NOR WILL THEY SIT DOWN AND WORK OUT OUR COUNTRY’S INFRASTRUCTURE NEEDS. THEY WANT OUR ECONOMY TO FALL INTO A DEEP RECESSION SO THEY CAN BLAME OUR PRESIDENT. I SAY THE PRESIDENT SHOULD BE ABLE TO SIGN SOME SORT OF EXECUTIVE ORDER THAT SAYS THAT THE DEMS IN CONGRESS HAVE TO SIT DOWN AND HELP OUR PRESIDENT RUN OUR COUNTRY AS HE AND ONLY HE IS OUR COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF. THEY USED THE IMMIGRATION LIES SAYING THEY WANTED TO HELP THE DACA RECIPIENTS EARN THEIR WAY TO CITIZENSHIP. WELL THEY DROPPED THAT REAL QUICK AS THE PRESIDENT WAS WILLING TO SIT DOWN FOR A DISCUSSION WITH THEM. THEY REFUSED. PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP SAID THEIR WAS A CRISIS AT OUR BORDERS WHERE MANY ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WERE CROSSING INTO OUR COUNTRY WITHOUT BEING VETTED. THE NUMBER OF IMMIGRANTS GREW VERY QUICKLY AND WHEN THEIR WASN’T ENOUGH ROOM FOR THEM THE DEMOCRATS SAID THE PRESIDENT WAS CAUSING A CRISIS AT OUR BORDER. THAT HE WAS RIPPING CHILDREN FROM THE ARMS OF THEIR PARENTS. THE DEMOCRATS OWN EVERYTHING THAT HAS HAPPENED SINCE THEY TRIED IN EVERY WAY TO BLOCK THE BUILDING OF THE WALL TO PREVENT ILLEGAL CROSSINGS FROM HAPPENING. NANCY PELOSI SAID THAT A WALL WAS IMMORAL BUT SHE APPENTLY LIVES IN A SECURED GATED COMMUNITY, LIKE MANY OTHER POLITICIANS DO. MAYBE SHE OUGHT TO BE GIVEN 6 OR SO IMMIGRANTS TO LIVE IN HER NEIGHBORHOOD WITHOUT BEING ALLOWED TO CHOOSE WHO IS PUT INTO HER AREA. MAYBE SOME MS-13 GANG MEMBERS WOULD LOVE TO WALK DOWN HER BLOCK AND SMILE AT HER WITH LUST IN THEIR EYES AND EVIL IN THEIR HEARTS. ALSO THE SANCTURARY CITIES SHOULD HAVE ALL FEDERAL AID REVOKED TO THEM. THERE IS A PERCENTAGE OF ILLEGAL IMIGRANTS ENTERING OUR COUNTRY THAT ARE DEFINITELY FELONS AND LAWBREAKERS. LET NANCY PELOSI (THE MASTER NEGOTIATOR) TELL THE PARENTS WHO HAVE LOST LOVED FAMILY MEMBERS DUE TO AN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT THAT IT IS JUST A PERCENTAGE OF LOVED ONES THAT DIE AT THE ILLEGALS HANDS. ONE LIFE IS TOO MANY TO BE ENDED BY SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T RESPECT OUR LAWS AND BREAK THEM RIGHT FROM THE DAY THEY ENTER OUR COUNTRY ILLEGALLY. END OF STORY.

  3. I hope what I am about to write does not get misconstrued. There is no excuse for the killing of innocent people. However, imagine being in a situation where laws exist but are not enforced; where police and politicians openly flout the laws they have sworn to uphold. This the state of our immigration system. Under such circumstances, I think many will resort to vigilantism.

    1. John,

      You are correct. The “mayors” and “governors” of these “sanctuary cities” do not care about their LEGAL citizens. They “order” their “police” to stand down, and NOT communicate with ICE officers or Border Patrol.
      They let the CRIMINAL ILLEGALS run wild their cities. The time WILL come, and it is not far off when the ARMED Law-abiding citizens have had enough, and will INDEED be FORCED to become VIGILANTES to protect their homes and families from these ILLEGAL INVADERS.

  4. That darn Trump. It must have been his rhetoric that caused ALL of the mass murders when Clinton, Bush and Obama were Presidents.

  5. If left wants gun violence to stop against races high in crime, why not get rid of them? Be careful, they just might start thinking that. You know how mentally sick the left is

  6. Only saw one item on the knife attack on 5 people in a mall in England. Because guns are unavailable to common thugs.

  7. Rhetoric probably does promote violence but it is not from Trump but the Leftist politicians and MSM as they daily spew out their lies, vitriol and hatred against him and us who support him.

  8. Mad Maxie Waters demands people attack Trump administration personnel and shortly after radical leftists yell and scream at Trump administration members sitting peaceably at dinner or minding their own business.

    Other lefitst pundits on Corrupt Non-news Network and other anti-American TV nets rant and rave against conservatives and Trump. Continued violence against Trump supporters.

  9. With that line of thinking. What President was responsible foe Columbine and Sandy Hook and all of the others that happened during Obama’s reign as “King”? This line of thinking is so arcane it’s
    ancient as the dark ages.
