In the wake of the politically-motivated shooting in Alexandria, Virignia yesterday where four innocent people were shot—including Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), who remains in critical condition—liberals have said Republicans are to blame for getting shot.
The New York Times penned an insane editorial on Wednesday blaming conservatives, and their White House correspondent Glenn Thrush blamed President Trump for the savagery in politics which led to the shooting.
Any debate about civility in politics begins with Trump. No one has degraded discourse more, while embracing the fringe. Fact, not opinion.

But let’s not forget all the times progressives called for violence towards Donald Trump and his supporters, and the many times anti-Trump protestors obliged.
Sen. Tim Kaine urged Americans to fight Trump “in Congress, in the courts, and in the streets.”
During the Screen Actor’s Guild Award ceremony, an actor from the Netflix show “Stranger Things” said when it comes to Trump supporters, we should “punch some people in the face!”
In February, controversial Trump supporter Milo Yiannopoulos had to cancel a speech at UC Berkeley after protests grew out of control. A woman wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat was pepper sprayed in the face by an anti-Trump protestor.
A group protesting Donald Trump’s proposed travel ban at a Portland airport beat up a man believed to be a Trump supporter in January.
And in February, a 12-year-old Trump supporter was reportedly beaten up by his classmates on the school bus when he wore a “Make America Great Again” hat.
