Nets Skip Anniversary of GOP Baseball Shooting, CNN Muddies Motive

nets-skip-anniversary-of-gop-baseball-shooting,-cnn-muddies-motive

Four years ago Monday (June 14), a leftist extremist who was a fan of Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow carried out a mass assassination attempt against Republican lawmakers in Alexandria, Virginia as they practiced for the congressional baseball game. It was a heinous act that the FBI had only just gotten around to calling domestic terrorism, but it was of no interest to the anti-Republican broadcast networks ABC, CBS, and NBC (morning and evening).

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, CNN tried to muddy the waters on the shooter’s motive.

Instead of covering the anniversary on Monday, their evening newscasts covered more frivolous topics like CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News gushing about a Pekingese winning best in show, and ABC talking about the weather. On Tuesday, all three of the networks talked about the weather and the heatwave in the western United States.

Now, despite the fact that the shooter kept a hit list of Republican lawmakers on his person, asked someone if the people on the field were Republican, and was involved with leftist extremists online, CNN tried to cast doubt on the shooter’s motive.

During Tuesday’s At This Hour, host Kate Bolduan invited on disgraced former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe to respond to Attorney General Merrick Garland’s comments about domestic terrorism and white supremacists earlier in the 11 o’clock hour.

“But he brought the other side of the equation into it by referring to the shooting of the congressional baseball practice and he did it very carefully, by saying a shooting by someone only — who committed the shooting only after he confirmed that the players were Republicans,” McCabe touted.

McCabe immediately followed up by suggesting there was no evidence that the shooter was politically motivated.

So, I think that reflects the fact that the FBI still doesn’t exactly know what that shooter was up to,” he falsely asserted. “They never really uncovered the sort of detailed evidence that laid out a specific plot or an objective. But it is undeniable that he was targeting Republicans.”

Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise (R), who had his pelvis shattered in the terrorist attack and had to undergo life-saving surgery and months of rehabilitation, rebuked McCabe on Twitter. “Seriously,” he questioned. And after giving a rundown of the evidence proving it was politically motivated, including a note on how the shooter “was in the Facebook group ‘Terminate the Republican Party,’” Scalise sarcastically suggested it was “a real mystery.”

Unbelievable. Andrew McCabe says the FBI isn’t sure why we were attacked playing baseball.

Seriously?

– The gunman came with a list of Republicans

– He verified we were Republicans before shooting

– He was in the Facebook group “Terminate the Republican Party”

A real mystery.

The liberal media’s lack of acknowledgment of the anniversary of the shooting stood in stark contrast to Fox News Channel’s Special Report and anchor Bret Baier.

“Congressional members are getting together today four years after a 66-year-old left-wing activist Bernie Sanders supporter opened fire at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, targeting Republicans there,” he recalled. “Five people were hit. House Republican Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana was seriously injured. The suspect was killed by law enforcement.”

Baier also took note of the FBI’s very late analysis of the motive. “Last month, the FBI reclassified the incident as ‘domestic terrorism.’ Ditching the original classification ‘suicide by cop.’”

This lack of interest in marking the date and giving the GOP victims respect was made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from Ford Motor Company on ABC, Amazon on CBS, and Consumer Cellular on NBC and CNN .

KATE BOLDUAN: Andy, I thought it was significant, the Attorney General [Merrick Garland] said very clearly that the FBI’s view, the top domestic violence extremist threat right now comes from racially and ethnically-motivated violent extremists. He’s talking about white supremacists.

But he also took care to note extremism and attacks on all political parties, on all races and creeds and religions. He noted the congressional baseball practice that was attacked, only after the gunman had asked if they were Republicans. I thought it was significant. Did young that was significant that he raised this?

ANDREW MCCABE: Yes, it was, Kate, and an incredibly deft way to bring in that other side of the equation. I mean, let’s call it what it is, right? I think he came right out and said, our biggest hot spot right now is racially-motivated, ethnically-motivated extremists, and we all know that the broad, broad majority of those are white supremacists, people targeting people of color and immigrants and things like that.

But he brought the other side of the equation into it by referring to the shooting of the congressional baseball practice and he did it very carefully, by saying a shooting by someone only — who committed the shooting only after he confirmed that the players were Republicans. So, I think that reflects the fact that the FBI still doesn’t exactly know what that shooter was up to.

They never really uncovered the sort of detailed evidence that laid out a specific plot or an objective. But it is undeniable that he was targeting Republicans. So, it was really, I thought, very effective.
