    Thursday evening, CBS's Scott Pelley, who officially ended his tenure as the network's Evening News anchor the following evening, told viewers that "It's time to ask whether the attack on the United States Congress Wednesday was foreseeable, predictable and, to some degree, self-inflicted."
    It's clear from Pelley's subsequent commentary that his answers to all three elements are "Yes." It's equally clear from the examples he supplied as support that he sees (or wants viewers to see) the problem as predominantly about the conduct of those on the right.

    Transcript below:

    It's time to ask whether the attack on the United States Congress, yesterday, was foreseeable, predictable and, to some degree, self-inflicted.
    Too many leaders, and political commentators, who set an example for us to follow, have led us into an abyss of violent rhetoric which, it should be no surprise, has led to violence.
    Yesterday was not the first time.
    In December last year, a man with an assault rifle stormed into a Washington-area pizzeria to free child sex slaves whom Hillary Clinton was holding there -- or at least that's what political blog sites had said. He fired into a locked door to discover no children in chains.....(continued)​

    Scott Pelley blaming the victims. Typical looser left thinking. Obama is still running the fourth leg of govt. from his mansion. Still trying to destroy this country. Follow the money. They want to redistribute the money of the American people. That way the entire world will all be the same. All controlled by the banks all broke and dependent. It all answers the question about guns. They will have a much easier time of control if guns are gone. Who wants guns gone? Billionaires Zuckerberg, Bloomberg, Bezoes and Zucker all of the Democrat elitist millionaires. My friends they have declared war on our congressmen and the gov't from the president right on down. There is a daily drumbeat of discord against our constitutional govt. I fear we will be seeing United Nations troops and vehicles on our shores quite soon. Don't blow me off as some radical right winger. Think for yourself that what I have said could be true. Definite onslaught against Christian and what we believe in. Trying to destroy the fabric of our nation. If you are a believer then you know that God has a plan.
    Anyone who truly believes this is too delusional and biased to be able to report the news objectively.

    Obviously national Progressive Marxist Leftists agree with Pelley. Democrats and the MSM told Republicans to stand down and not “politicize” this eminently political assassination attempt. Republicans, as usual, got spooked and obediently went out publicly stating that all sides had to tamp down the rhetoric.

    I cannot recall when Gabby Giffords was SHOT IN THE FACE, there being such politicization by the left. Give it up already.

    I'm guessing you weren't yet born when this happened?

    I'm waiting to hear Pelosi and other Progressives claim and lionize Hodgkinson as a martyr to the PSM Leftist cause.

    25 years of calling for armed political violence comes home to roost and every one of you suffer from Repnesia.

    Your leadership both political and media have clamored for a "2nd Amendment Solution" to your failures. Of course you want to blame the Democrats when one of your own goes over the cliff.

    "One of your own?"

    Angry white guy with a gun. Yeah, one of your own.

    It's hard to tell from your out of context quote, but my assumption is that he thinks congress is somewhat responsible for the level of political dogmatism and oppositional, dismissive, dehumanizing rhetoric that has led to this. If he is saying that the republicans are specifically responsible, or that Scalise himself is personally responsible then he really doesn't get it.

    Whoa there. The Progressive Left has been clamoring for Gun Control since the 1930's. You write of armed political violence. Yes, they've been committed by Marxist Unions, Marxist Anarchists, and surely criminal of all shapes and colors. No It's the Brady bunch of Progressives that have been doing the clamoring, because they'll never have enough state participation to rescind the Second Amendment to the Constitution. There is no 2nd Amendment solution. Hodgkinson is not one of 'our' own. He was mind and body a product of the Progressive Marxist Left, Why are you being so racist, have you seen the gun crimes in Chicago, and Baltimore.

    Whoa there yourself Trigger!

    Your unintelligible rant aside...

    You won't find an organization on the Democratic side like the NRA clamoring for "2nd Amendment solutions."
    You won't find Democratic senators and congressmen clamoring for "2nd amendment solutions."
    You won't find Democratic presidents or presidential candidates calling for "2nd amendment solutions."
    You will find all of those things and more on the Republican side.

    Your birds are coming home to roost. Your enabling, encouraging and preaching your "2nd amendment solutions" as part of your "conservative" theology has reached willing ears on many occasions over the last few years. You own this, live with it.

    Thanks for confirming your racist sentiments, you're one of the many people in this country who prevent us from moving ahead in a productive manner.
