The left has been scrambling to justify their consistent calls for violence against the right — all played out in the media — ever since yesterday’s politically motivated shooting in Alexandria.
They’re failing. Miserably.
The liberal narrative is that Obama never used violent rhetoric; a move that’s been used to deflect the blame for the shooting, and place it back onto the right.
Today, conservative actor James Woods tweeted something that totally shut that line of thought down cold.
Via Twitchy:Since the shooting in Alexandria yesterday, the Left has been VERY VERY busy finding ways to pretend they had nothing to do with the Leftist gunman who fired on innocent Republicans practicing baseball. From blaming Trump, to implying the Right brought it on themselves, they’ve been contorting quite impressively to avoid the truth about their message.
James Woods was having none of it:
“Argue with people, get in their face.” "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun." – Barack Hussein Obama #AlexandriaShooting— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) June 15, 2017

Sorta like when Obama made the joke about the Special Olympics? Can you IMAGINE the shiznit fit if Trump said something like that? They think he MIGHT have mocked a journo with a disability and they are still freaking out all over him for that …
But not Obama who LITERALLY made fun of people with developmental disabilities.
Obama = Worst President in my lifetime and I was born during Truman.

And still no PUBLIC statement from the Former "President". #Disgraceful

I remember him saying this & thinking how utterly irresponsible to put that out to incite ppl. Then we have Hillary screeching to resist.

Seems sort of irresponsible to utter such words, especially when you’re the president, right? If you’re going to raise a stink about Trump being divisive, it might be a good idea to clean up your own front yard first.
No one should be calling for violence against another human being, especially over political beliefs. This is America. We should all be able to exercise our First Amendment rights thoughtfully, and like actual adults rather than bratty children.
If the left wants to act as if they have the moral high ground, they better hold their elected officials accountable for their actions, too, not just finger pointing and passing the buck to everyone else.
