Former Rapid City Dem candidate trying to blame Donald Trump for Bernie Sanders campaign volunteer shooter? 

Predictably, calls for unity didn’t last long. 

On the Argus Leader website, Rapid City (District 32) Democrat State Senate candidate David Hubbard is in the newspaper actually trying to blame Republicans and Donald Trump for the Bernie Sanders campaign worker who attempted to murder several Congressman in Washington DC:

Republicans who blame Democrats for the recent [Republican Congressional baseball practice] shooting are deflecting blame. Conservatives cut funding to aid the mentally ill, while simultaneously allowing them to purchase firearms.

This issue is divisiveness caused by people like the President Donald Trump and Republican lawmakers with their inability to crack down on lawlessness by their own supporters. Hate crimes have risen.

It’s time for those who openly call for violence against others (i.e. President Trump) to take responsibility for their hate-filled rhetoric. Do not place all the blame on liberals or Democrats, conservatives and Republicans have been openly calling for violence since Trump became their candidate.

While I renounce the attack, I have to ask, “Trump, what the hell do you think was going to happen?” Isn’t this exactly what he has been calling for? Violence?

Read that here.

This issue is divisiveness caused by people like the President Donald Trump and Republican lawmakers?” 

Wow.  Former candidate Hubbard is doing some serious acrobatics to try to somehow shift blame to Republicans for the action of the shooter, and manufacture a claim that “conservatives and Republicans have been openly calling for violence since Trump became their candidate.

Maybe that’s the exact kind of hate which is the problem that started it all in the first place.

    Typical. We know what bubble Former Hubbard lives in: MSNBC, CNN, CBS (Scott Pelley), NYT, Huffpo and on-and-on we go.

    By the way, when this wacko says “Republicans who blame Democrats”, who specifically in a leadership/prominent position is the GOP did such a thing?

    Also, does this nut job (who sounds kinda “shooterish” since wackjobs seem incapable of identifying when something is done by another wackjob) need a list of leadership/prominent Democrats who blamed the GOP for Rep. Giffords being shot.

    I suppose this buffoon voted for Obama, the guy who was very helpful in driving the division between the races (yes, he did).

    Again, it’s a Democrat who requires the government to step in; where was this guy’s family when he was posting idiocy? where was anyone who saw what this guy was about? There are just going to be lunatics on both sides, so try to accept that Bernie didn’t help matters either. You know Bernie Sanders, Dave? The one who get dehydrated every time he gives a speech because is spitting while he spews hatred and revolution? Yeah, that’s the old socialist. Is it all coming into perspective now?

    C. Ermle,

    There isn’t an ounce of truth that any public policy is responsible for this nut job shooting Republican Congressman. If there is, name it specifically on what in any way shifts responsibility from this person to Republicans. If you can’t name it, you are intellectually and morally on the level of Cory Heidelberger and Nancy Pelosi and fit to be ignored.
