A Washington Post reporter, in an attempt to deflect the fact that most political violence in the country comes from the Left, has decided to spew a common falsehood. The Daily Wire reports:
A reporter for The Washington Post, apparently enraged that National Review issued an op-ed correctly denouncing the Democratic Party for their recent rhetoric that has stoked the flames of violence, issued a tweet in which he blamed “right-wing anger/mobs” for instigating the shooting of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords in 2011.
This Nat'l Review editorial would have a lot more potency if NR owned up to fact that 2010 right-wing anger/mobs played a role in dehumanizing Congress, helping lead to Giffords shooting in 2011. https://t.co/7Nd37igSEg

Kane should know better; the shooter who targeted Giffords, Jared Loughner, was shown to have no political leanings, a fact that was offered in response to his irresponsible tweet:
The mainstream media is trusted by fewer Americans than ever before, and stunts like this will not help their credibility.
CNN=Clueless Network News! Centralized NAZI News!Communist NWK News.AKA: Fake News! MSM=Fake News, Fox News!The Pravda Commie newspapers and their propaganda MOB machine at full throttle! Vote republican to save the country from swamp news! No RINOs, pls!
It does seem like it is Trump and his followers who are always instigating violence like when Trump told his followers that they should punch others in the face, or knock them down and now the cGOP candidate that says he is going to stomp all over his opponent wirg gilf spikes, and look at the posts where others are saying they are taking up arms against Liberals and they should be killed. The fact is protests now sometimes roudy and very seldom violent in any way unless confronted by the opposition.
Now as far as the Media goes maybe people do not trust it but then viewer numbers keep going up, and even FOX news is not immune they just do not tell the entire thing like most of the so caslled Liberal news who point out everything.
