Quotes of the day - AZ Shooting

I think these two articles say it far better than I could, so I'll leave you with two quotes, two links, and very light commentary. The first, from Glenn Reynolds at the Wall Street Journal

"Those who purport to care about the tenor of political discourse don't help civil debate when they seize on any pretext to call their political opponents accomplices to murder."

That sums things up beautifully. The left isn't interested in civil discourse. They're ignoring facts and using this as an excuse to attack their opponents. They have no shame.

The next, from Tucker Carlson and Neil Patel writing at The Daily Caller,

"Seize the tragedy for political gain. Blur the distinction between speech and violence. Bully the other side into silence. These were instinctive reactions of some on the Left to Saturday’s shootings. As the rest of us stood transfixed and horrified by the scale of human suffering, they were plotting a propaganda campaign."

They're right, this is what the ;eft does. It's their standard tactics. They survive on lies, misinformation and propaganda. As Rahm Emanuel once said,

"You don't ever want a crisis to go to waste; it's an opportunity to do important things that you would otherwise avoid.”

Those on the Left and the bigots at the Brady Campaign haven't wasted any time before dancing in the blood of the dead. It is truly despicable behavior, yet entirely unsurprising.

H/T to Breda and Mary Katherine Ham.

It's not like the Left even needs to engineer a Reichstag fire, they just capitalize on the latest pinata that the Media cohort hoists.
There's enough weirdness around to go around, they could take advantage of a 2-for-1 coupon at Dennys.
