The FBI’s Briefing On GOP Baseball Shooting Couldn’t Be More Bizarre

Well, the takeaway of the briefing was characterized well by the Associated Press headline about it: “FBI: Gunman who shot congressman had no target in mind.” The Associated Press reported the FBI:

  • believes the gunman “had no concrete plan to inflict violence” against Republicans,
  • “had not yet clarified who, if anyone, he planned to target, or why,”
  • believes he may have just “happened upon” the baseball game the morning of June 14, and that the attack appeared “spontaneous,”
  • are unclear on the “context” of Hodgkinson’s note with six names of members of Congress,
  • does not believe that photographs of the baseball field or other sites “represented surveillance of intended targets,” and
  • “painted a picture of a down-on-his-luck man with few future prospects.”

In fact, USA Today went with “FBI offers portrait of troubled Alexandria shooter with ‘anger management problem’” for their headline, since that’s what the FBI emphasized in the briefing.

While He’s Still In Critical Condition, News Channel Calls Steve Scalise ‘Bigot and Homophobe’

From Free Beacon:

Despite House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) being in critical condition after an attempted assassination, liberal website Fusion denounced him on Thursday as a “bigoted homophobe.”

“Bigoted Homophobe Steve Scalise’s Life Was Saved by a Queer Black Woman,” read the headline from Fusion, which is owned by Univision.

And there was this lovely piece within the article itself.

So it is a point of especially delicious irony that Scalise, who survived the attack (and is reportedly in critical condition), may owe his life to a queer black woman.

Who. Cares?!

I’m sorry. But who gives a crap what race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. this woman is? Especially when terms like “racist” and “homophobe” have been used incorrectly for so long that they no longer have a meaning. When everything is racist, no one knows what racism is anymore.

And no one on Earth knows what the term “queer” means anymore. I thought it was a slur, but apparently it’s used in the LGBTQFRTOGJZITAGTEDCHRARYGUVBLSYPOQWE acronym now. So… not a slur anymore?

You know what I care about? She’s a hero and a great American. Nothing else really matters to anyone other than the author of this article that the clip came from. I can promise you, Scalise and his family don’t care about anything other than that, either, especially since he isn’t as racist as this person thinks he is… because no one on Earth as is as racist as this person thinks anyone who doesn’t agree with them is.

After this shooting, photographs started being released of the heroes of this event, which I thought was great. We need to spend more time focused on the heroes in these situations, and we normally don’t. No one pointed out her race or gender, and this is honestly the first time I’ve heard her described as “queer.” And I honestly don’t give a crap that she’s anything other than a hero. Period. Good on her for being a great American, and thank you to everyone talking about her and the others for highlighting them as the heroes they are.

Black? Female? “Queer?” Honestly, no one cares. As it should be.

Immediately After GOP Colleagues Were Shot, Democrat Baseball Team Does Something POWERFUL…

But soon after the Capitol Police downed the shooter, Democrats broke in prayer when it was again safe, The Hill newspaper reported.

Rep. Ruben J. Kihuen‏ (D, NE) quickly Tweeted out a photo saying that, “@HouseDemocrats praying for our @HouseGOP @SenateGOP baseball colleagues after hearing about the horrific shooting.”

I’ll give them credit. They at least waited almost 24 hours before starting the gun control talk. They had a moment of humanity and prayed for those who were injured.

Now if we could get them to have this kind of compassion for the unwashed masses. Normally, they are yelling about gun control before the incident is even over. Guess it changes when it’s one of their own.

However, they made sure to get a picture of them praying out on Twitter as quickly as possible.

Politicians. Gotta love ’em.

Eric Bolling: ‘Crazy People Act on the Crazy Things They Hear From Politicians and Celebrities’

“Snoop Dogg’s gun, Kathy Griffin’s head, Shakespeare’s bloody rampage, it goes on and on. How many innocent people have to die before we realize that words do matter?” Bolling asked.

“Crazy people act on the crazy things they hear from politicians and celebrities,” he continued. “Think before you utter those blind, hateful words next time, liberals because there are crazy people out there taking your metaphors literally.”

These folks now want to discuss gun control again. The rest of us want to discuss you all growing the hell up and moving on from an election loss.
