Left placing blame on political opposition to prepare for civil war
Some liberals blamed Republicans on social media following two deadly shootings over the weekend.
A gunman opened fire at an El Paso, Texas, shopping area Saturday, killing 20 and injuring at least 26. A shooter killed nine people and injured 26 in downtown Dayton, Ohio, Sunday morning.
Many on social media put blame on conservatives, President Donald Trump, Fox News and others.
The alleged El Paso shooter, identified as 21-year-old Patrick Crusius, is believed to be a white nationalist, and some blamed various conservatives such as Fox News host Tucker Carlson for spurring on the attack with “talking points.” Others blamed Republicans for supporting the National Rifle Association (NRA).
Jon Cooper, chairman of The Democratic Coalition, tweeted at Vice President Mike Pence, blaming him, Trump and Republicans. He wrote, “The blood of innocent victims is on your hands!”
