When a major shooting occurs, the left is ready to blame Republicans.
That’s exactly what happened when some leftist news sources chastised the right for allowing the horrible massacre to happen.
To begin, MSNBC writer Ruth Ben-Ghiat suggested that Republicans are implicated in school shootings by discrediting democratic institutions such as public schools.
Meanwhile, CNN White House Correspondent John Harwood was enraged by Joe Biden’s failure to criticize Republicans for the Uvalde massacre during his remarks on the subject.
“This is very specifically about the Republican Party, because the same extremism that leads so many Republicans to reject election results has also led the party to oppose almost any restriction or legislation on the purchase and ownership of weapons, including assault weapons.”
Finally, the women of The View had to express their thoughts on the subject. Whoopi Goldberg, the show’s co-host, had it out for Republicans, threatening to physically attack them and advising gun owners to prepare for an attack.
She didn’t leave it there. “I would like Republicans to show the same energy that they show for banning books and banning conversations about gays and banning conversations about black history, and regulating my uterus,” Goldberg concluded. “I want them to put the same kind of effort into prohibiting weapons.”
She went even farther, blaming Governor Greg Abbott (R-TX) for the tragedy, claiming that he passed 22 measures specifically permitting mass shooters to buy, carry, and possess weapons in Texas.
