Even as the embarrassment known as Terry McAuliffe tried to inject "gun control" into the Left's narrative, the shooting at the Republican's practice for a congressional baseball game presented with all the earmarks of a politically motivated event.
FOX News reported that Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), who left just before the shooting, said as he walked to his car, a man asked him if it was Republicans or Democrats practicing. About 3 minutes later the shooting began. If DeSantis identifies the shooter as the man who approached him then this is a politically motivated assassination attempt.
We have come to the point in our political discourse where the Left's speech - their slash and burn, win-at-all-cost, advance the false narrative to motivate anger and hate rhetoric - is moving people to murder. This is the stuff that promotes division to the point of Civil War.
Should the motivation for this event prove to indeed be political in nature - and if it proves out that the shooter intentionally meant to target Republicans for political purposes - then the Left, both Democrats and Progressives, must accept the full burden of responsibility for this man's actions. It has been the constant drip, drip, drip of Alinsky-based slash-and-burn political strategy that has fractured our people to this point.
If, indeed, these were the first shots of the Second US Civil War, it is Democrats and Progressives who have delivered us to this moment.
