On the day of the shooting The New York Times revived the nonexistent link between Sarah Palin and the Giffords shooting, and even the Washington Post denied and debunked the claim: The bogus claim that a map of crosshairs by Sarah Palin’s PAC incited Rep. Gabby Giffords’s shooting, and threatened to award the NYT (or anyone else) four Pinocchios for further infractions. Yeah, that'll stop 'em.
As noted by the Weasel Zippers, brought to us by Wombat-socho's "In The Mailbox: 06.16.17", on the day of the shooting, a New Jersey Democrat started a hashtag #HuntRepublicanCongressmen
James Devine posted several messages on Facebook and Twitter following the Alexandra, Virginia, shooting of U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise and several others by a gunman with a history of violence and of making online rantings against Republican officials and their policies.and by Thursday, Democratic Congressional staffers boo Trump at unity baseball game and CBS anchor Scott Pelley was hinting that the attack might be foreseeable, predictable, self-inflicted. Nice tight skirt you got there, Republicans.
“We are in a war with selfish, foolish & narcissistic rich people. Why is it a shock when things turn violent?” Devine posted on social media, ending the message with the hashtag: #HuntRepublicanCongressmen
“I have little sympathy for the Republican Congressman who got shot today because he viciously opposed President Obama’s effort to reduce gun violence and instead, he accepted more gun lobby money than all but 15 other members of the House of Representatives,” he said on Facebook.
