    Death Squads Should Gun Down Journalists, Ex-Breitbart Editor Says | Fortune

    I suppose conservatives will ignore the blatant call to violence in their rush to condemn the Democrat's call to activism. Milo is just a nice boy, and he was just joking, right?

    Even worse, 2 seconds after finding out about the shooting, Hannity blamed Maxine Waters! I think he was marking her as the next target. Something isn't sitting right about any of this. They're trying to start civil and race wars to destabilize the country.

    It certainly doesn't help when the president repeatedly calls the press the enemy of the people.

    I just made a $25 donation to a scholarship fund set up in the name of the fallen journalists at the University of Maryland.

    I encourage others to do the same, instead of offering symbolic, yet useless 'thoughts and prayers.'

    He apparently wasn't motivated by Milo, Hannity, Maxine, or Trump.
    Turns out the shooter had filed a defamation suit against the paper for an article they ran about him. A judge tossed out the suit. Then he appealed and lost the appeal.

    More details about the article and the shooter in this article.

    Whew.
    It's really a stroke of luck that there was evidence that this was a brewing disagreement and wasn't just a right wing nut case influenced by their media habits.
    Meanwhile we can all pretend that Trump is having love rallies where he speaks in coherent sentences and encourages his country with words of unity and solidarity.

    So, because you hold a grudge against the newspaper because they covered a harassment story, which exposed the shooter as a nut case, that somehow changes the ramifications of the mass shooting?

    Once again, the real culprit, are gun laws that allow any wacko with the money in hand to purchase a gun.

    And who supports easy gun laws?

    The GOP.
