Re: “Walters: Congressional Shooter Campaigned for Bernie Sanders

I left out the recent stabbing deaths: This happened on June 3, 2017. Phillip Wade, 38, of Antioch was arrested for stabbing 57-year-old Anthony Johnson of Pittsburg multiple times at a bus stop on Saturday afternoon. Wades Facebook page had increasingly hostile statements and threats towards Muslims and African-Americans. On May 19, Wade posted a threatening racist statement concerning former President Barack Obama. The killer was described as more of a follower, who became a major Trump supporter. The victim in Saturdays fatal stabbing was black. And this one: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-n…

Re: “Walters: Congressional Shooter Campaigned for Bernie Sanders

citizen, yes, Trump supporters have killed people. Violence begets violence. And continuous vitriol on either side emboldens individuals who are mentally ill and have lots of guns. http://www.thenewcivilrightsmovement.com/j… AND http://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/new… PLUS http://www.diversityinc.com/news/trump-con…

March 21, 2010As the U.S. House of Representatives enters a final round of debate over the health care reform bill, Conservative blogger Solomon Solly Forrell calls for the assassination of President Barack Obama on his Twitter account.

March 23, 2010After Mike Troxel of the Lynchburg Tea Party and Nigel Coleman of the Danville Tea Party post the home address of the brother of Rep. Tom Perriello (D-VA) and urge supporters to drop by, someone deliberately cuts a propane gas line at Perriellos house. Rep. Perriello had been targeted by the Tea Party activists because of his vote in favor of health care reform. Perriellos brother and his wife have four children under the age of eight.

The list just keeps going and going. Don't be a hypocrite. Violence and terrorism are vile regardless of which side the perp is on. Not a huge Bernie fan but everyone knows he doesn't condone violence. The records show that most violence and domestic terrorism come from the right wing.
