Looney Left Blames Trump For Mass Shootings


“And who really is responsible for any one man carrying a gun? Surely it’s impossible that it’s him.”—Bob Dylan 1965

Scapegoating President Trump for any and everything that happens has become a classic leftist playbook tactic. Whenever progressives feel as though they’re losing or not getting what they want, they always turn the blame on Trump. If the dog bites or the bee stings or you stub your toe it’s Trump’s fault to these angry Dems. It’s a distraction and it helps the left-wing avoid facing the music about reality and the failure of their collective politics. The events which took place on Saturday are no exception to this rule.

Various progressive Hollywood figures took to social media, alleging that Trump is at fault for the shooting. According to these people, the president is perpetuating “hate speech” which urges individuals to act on their darkest instincts.

Hollywood leftists are calling for stricter gun control. This, too, is a common occurrence amongst progressives. Someway, somehow, they maintain that restricting gun ownership access from law-abiding citizens will reduce shootings.

I follow Trump like a shadow and never heard him say anything racial or inflammatory towards minorities like these dem figures say he says. These Dems are blaming him for his rhetoric causing these shootings, but don’t say anything specific he said. Meanwhile, I find it suspicious and more than a coincidence that the Texas shooting was in Beto’s state and the Dayton shooting was in Buttigieg’s state. I can’t put anything specific on it. Some people are saying Soros is paying these shooters to make Trump look bad and take away people’s guns. Still, others are saying The Deep State is behind these shootings because Trump has upset them with him exposing them.

Individuals are ultimately responsible for their own actions, both legally and morally. Blaming Trump for the actions of a lunatic is peak intellectual dishonesty, but since when has the left ever cared about that? This straw man argument is commonly used in politics, but it does not change reality.

It’s dreadful that so many left-wingers have chosen hatred over truth. Each and every one of these politicians who are faulting Trump or pushing for gun control are either aware of what they’re truly doing or they’re simply ignorant. A combination of both scenarios is also a likely possibility.

When it’s all said and done, the only person responsible for what happened in El Paso is the shooter. Blaming the president for a crime which he never engaged in or facilitated is absolutely ludicrous…but then again, Democrats have been doing this for years with the so-called Russia investigation, so false accusations of others aren’t foreign to the left at all. This is another tactic out of the Saul Alinsky playbook to blame others with false accusations or your own mistakes.

Hollywood leftists are calling for stricter gun control. This, too, is a common occurrence amongst progressives. Someway, somehow, they maintain that restricting gun ownership access from law-abiding citizens will reduce shootings.

What the left always misses is that, by definition, criminals do not follow gun control laws. Tighter gun control is counterproductive and only ensures that individuals who do follow gun laws are at the mercy of those with no regard for any laws.

While the left constantly accuses conservatives of being the violent ones, it is the left that keeps getting arrested for violence! Not only that, their elected representatives are the ones regularly inciting violence with their words.

As an example, look back to when Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) encouraged people to get into the face of Trump officials if they see them in public.

Ted Cruz and his wife were confronted while they were out at a restaurant. Tomi Lahren had water thrown at her while dining with her parents. Sarah Sanders was forced to leave a local restaurant.

You just don’t hear similar experiences about Democrats involving conservatives, ever!

While conservatives continue to be demonized, clearly, the left is the party of violence and intolerance.

The gunman in Dayton, Ohio – who killed nine people in less than 45 seconds – was a leftist, dismayed by the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. (Heavy.com)

Connor Betts, the Dayton, Ohio mass shooter, was a self-described “leftist,” who wrote that he would happily vote for Democrat Elizabeth Warren, praised Satan, was upset about the 2016 presidential election results, and added, “I want socialism, and i’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round to understanding.”

Big League Politics can report that Connor Betts, the alleged mass shooter who killed at least 9 people in an entertainment district of Dayton, Ohio earlier today was a registered Democrat who has voted in 7 previous elections, including two Democratic Primaries. Betts was killed during the altercation with police.

Betts’ Twitter profile read, “he/him / anime fan / metalhead / leftist / i’m going to hell and i’m not coming back.” One tweet on his page read, “Off to Midnight Mass. At least the songs are good. #athiestsonchristmas.” The page handle? I am the spookster. On one selfie, he included the hashtags, “#selfie4satan #HailSatan @SatanTweeting.” On the date of Republican Sen. John McCain’s death, he wrote, “F*ck John McCain.” He also liked tweets referencing the El Paso mass shooting in the hours before Dayton.

El Paso shooter Partrick Crusius published a manifesto before his shooting spree.It is clear from his words that he is a PROGRESSIVE white nationalist – what was once defined as a “Nazi.” This is not to say he’s a Democrat or a Republican, but he is without question a progressive. All you have to do is read his manifesto to see the obvious tell-tale signs.

Under his section titled “Economic Reasons” for the attack, the shooter states:

“In the near future, America will have to initiate a basic universal income to prevent widespread poverty and civil unrest as people lose their jobs (to automation). Joblessness is in itself a source of civil unrest. The less dependents on a government welfare system, the lower the unemployment rate, the better. Achieving ambitious social projects like universal healthcare and UBI would become far more likely to succeed if tens of millions of defendants are removed.”

Now THAT is some Nazi level stuff right there. Kill the undesirables so we can have our glorious government programs!

Whenever someone goes rouge and commits a mass shooting, Democrats always find ways to blame the National Rifle Association (NRA). This comes in spite of the fact that not a single member of the NRA has ever committed a mass shooting. Despite the truth and despite facts, progressives are bound and determined to scapegoat the NRA as part of a larger, political ploy which opposes gun ownership. Americans are seeing this happen yet again, following this weekend’s tragic shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas.

Now Joe Biden is getting in the act blaming the NRA. Following the El Paso shooting, Democrat frontrunner Joe Biden declared an all-out war against the NRA and its esteemed members. According to Biden, he is going to “beat” the NRA and manufacturers of guns.

“I can say without fear of contradiction: Enough is enough is enough. This is a sickness, this is well beyond anything that we should be tolerating. The fact is we can beat the NRA, we can beat the gun manufacturers. I did it. We’ve beat them before, we can do that again and it’s my intention to do just that.”.


Since the incident in El Paso, the NRA has come out and made a statement which offers their condolences and support for individuals who were impacted and authorities who are working on the case.

Instead of taking Biden’s approach, it would be more helpful for Americans to focus on the mental health aspects which prompt these types of shootings.  Democrats’ refuse to acknowledge mental health and other factors which prompt violence. Guns are inanimate objects; they are also neither good nor evil. “Beating” in the NRA instead of focusing on factors which are prompting people to commit violence is a farce.

Here is an interesting comment I saw all these people including Biden who blame Trump and the NRA for gun violence should read and heed:

The people who abuse guns are the ones that should be held accountable. Lets see who abuses our guns:
In 1865 a Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States.

In 1881 a left wing radical Democrat shot James Garfield, President of the United States who later died from the wound.

In 1963 a radical left wing socialist shot and killed John F. Kennedy, President of the United States.

In 1975 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at Gerald Ford, President of the United States.

In 1983 a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan, President of the United States.

In 1984 James Hubert, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 22 people in a McDonalds restaurant.

In 1986 Patrick Sherrill, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 15 people in an Oklahoma post office.

In 1990 James Pough, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 10 people at a GMAC office.

In 1991 George Hennard, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 23 people in a Luby’s cafeteria in Killeen, TX.

In 1995 James Daniel Simpson, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 5 coworkers in a Texas laboratory.

In 1999 Larry Asbrook,  a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 8 people at a church service.

In 2001 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at the White House in a failed attempt to kill George W. Bush, President of the US.

In 2003 Douglas Williams, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people at a Lockheed Martin plant.

In 2007 a registered Democrat named Seung – Hui Cho, shot and killed 32 people in Virginia Tech.

In 2010 a mentally ill registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner, shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed 6 others.

In 2011 a registered Democrat named James Holmes, went into a movie theater and shot and killed 12 people.

In 2012 Andrew Engeldinger, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people in Minneapolis.

In 2013 a registered Democrat named Adam Lanza, shot and killed 26 people in a school in Newtown, CT.

As recently as Sept 2013, an angry Democrat shot 12 at a Navy ship yard.

In 2019 a registered Democrat named Connor Betts, the 24-year-old shooter, shot and killed his 22 year old sister and nine people, wounding 27 others.

Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats and guns.
Not one NRA member, Tea Party member, or Republican conservative was involved in any of these shootings and murders.

  1. Did mass shootings not occur when Obama, Clinton, etc were President? We as Republicans never once placed the blame on Obama for mass shootings during his Presidency.

  2. I have the same observations as Tim. It wasn’t Obama’s fault when Sandy Hook and the navy Yards shootings – or any of the shootings during is administration took place. Now the left ramps up its killing sprees because on shooting at a time doesn’t really “get our attention” like they would want. I truly believe these events are orchestrated to a certain degree that the participants must be encouraged and therefore willing to act violently.

    Again. The entire stage is founded upon a culture of DEATH. Daily, more than 3000 American citizens are murdered in the womb. When we sew to death we shall reap death!
