A shootout in Alexandria UPDATED

The day was off to a slow start.

First my lap­top was clam­or­ing for updates and would not let me post­pone them. After those were done, we had a brief power out­age dur­ing an even briefer thunderstorm.

I turned on the TV and Drudge Report to find this:

The shooter car­ried out his attack with a long gun.

Reps. Ron DeSan­tis and Mo Brooks were there,

As of the writ­ing of this post, the shooter is report­edly alive and in police cus­tody. [UPDATE: He is now reported dead.]

All year long the Left has been fos­ter­ing a cli­mate of hate, from col­lege pro­fes­sors ask­ing that Repub­li­cans be “lined up and shot,” antifa riot­ers, BLM demon­stra­tors chant­ing “pigs in a blan­ket, fry them like bacon,” to Kathy Grif­fin jihadist photo-​ops, while fake blood pours as Shake­speare in the Park stabs Don­ald Trump.

[UPDATE: Doug Ross graph­i­cally illus­trates the main­stream­ing of polit­i­cal vio­lence by Demo­c­rat extrem­ists]

Pre­dictably, the Democ­rats will ignore all of this “elim­i­na­tion­ist” rhetoric as a pos­si­ble motive the same way they ignore Islamism as a motive in other ter­ror attacks. They will instead focus on the gun.

Sure enough,

As Pete says, if you are a con­ser­v­a­tive, you should arm your­self sooner rather than later.

All year long the Left has been fostering a climate of hate, from college professors asking that Republicans be “lined up and shot,” antifa rioters, BLM demonstrators chanting “pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon,” to Kathy Griffin jihadist photo-ops, while fake blood pours as Shakespeare in the Park stabs Donald Trump.

[UPDATE: Doug Ross graphically illustrates the mainstreaming of political violence by Democrat extremists]

Predictably, the Democrats will ignore all of this “eliminationist” rhetoric as a possible motive the same way they ignore Islamism as a motive in other terror attacks. They will instead focus on the gun.

Sure enough,

As Pete says, if you are a conservative, you should arm yourself sooner rather than later.
