What I find absolutely astounding about this response is that, just as I had originally stated, you do in fact feel that what Gianforte did was justified — now in light of a nearly three-year-old tweet (which was a stupid joke and by no means an actual call to violence) dug up online. In other words, once again you blame the victim of the assault rather than the person who committed it. You also blame him for having written an article. And you still don’t see how repugnant this train of thought is.
“After the toddler temper tantrum by progressives over the past six months calling gloating repugs denenerant is disingenuous at best.”
I don’t even know what you’re talking about with respect to “toddler temper tantrums” (are you referring to protests?), but again — quit trying to justify the degeneracy of the current Republican/conservative wing by deflecting or pointing to others. Take responsibility for it. Quit trying to justify assault.
“The ‘journalist’ provoked a politician.’
He did no such thing. Quit calling a reporter’s questions “provocation.” You sound as bad as Berkeley protesters. Grow up.
