“Because we are obliged by the sickness of our political culture to analyze every despicable event in a manner designed to confirm our priors, we have already, mere hours after the barbarity, sunk into a nauseating discussion about how much blame to assign to the president for this unspeakable act. The obvious answer is: None.
“Donald Trump should be assigned no such blame, even if the shooter were the president of the Donald Trump Fan Club, because he pulled no trigger and committed no crime. Period. To do that, to assign blame, is to whitewash the crime itself and the criminal’s responsibility for it. He becomes a cultural robot, seized by an evil collective unconscious that drove him to his crimes.” – John Podhoretz in The Slaughter in Pittsburgh
Trump is to blame for the tragedy in #Pittsburgh, he has been blowing the anti-semitic dog whistle with his rhetoric of globalist that seek to undermine our sovereignty. Just because these rootless cosmopolitans are grossly overrepresented by one religion doesn’t mean anything

…should not be limited to Trump. It would only take 2 Republicans to stop this madness. Make no mistake & don’t dismiss his role, the POTUS is an avowed nationalist whose dog whistle rhetoric has inspired these actions.
Trump is to blame.
Every single Republican is to blame. https://t.co/cdK3f4wnVu

This attack is Trump’s fault. The piece of crap can claim it wasn’t, but his rhetoric has inspired the violence. He is always careful to NOT tell his followers never do this sort of thing. pic.twitter.com/XKNhynfDpC
