Pence: Don't link political rhetoric to Pittsburgh synagogue shooting

Source: MSN/Washington Post

Vice President Pence has rejected suggestions that the inflammatory rhetoric from President Trump and others in the Republican Party has contributed to the rise of political violence, arguing that members of both parties engage in heated debate.

Pence made the remarks in an interview with NBC News after Saturday’s Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, in which 11 people were killed and six wounded. The incident was the deadliest attack on Jews in U.S. history.

Several other Trump administration officials, lawmakers and others weighed in on the shooting in appearances on the Sunday morning news shows.

In the interview with NBC’s Vaughn Hillyard, Pence denounced the shooting and said that the country has “no tolerance for the kind of anti-Semitic violence that reared its ugly head today.” But he also defended the often-explosive language used by Trump, maintaining that the president “connected to the American people because he spoke plainly.”

See? That's how you do it. You just say:

1. Only 16 people died in Puerto Rico due to hurricanes last year.
2. The caravan is filled with Middle Eastern terrorists.
3. Climate change is not man made nor does it cause extremes in weather.
4. Trump's loss of the popular vote was due to voter fraud by millions of undocumented voters.
5. That the economy only turned around as of January 2017, not during the Obama years.
6. The tax cut did not cause the growing deficit.
7. Women who claim they are sexually assault are lying if they do not fight back or immediately call the police.
8. Republican racist, sexist and anti-semetic rhetoric does not contribute to rise in recent hate crimes.
9. While media coverage of Republican racist, sexist and anti-semetic rhetoric does cause such hate crimes.

And, if someone suggests otherwise, you just shake your head as if they are a dumb ass and laugh as though a little child is claiming to believe in Santa Clause: "Bless your heart. You think that over 20 people died when Puerto Rico was hit by a hurricane."

6. Hey Dude, start packing for prison since Mueller hasn't interviewed YOU yet.

Ya know what that means? Ask Roger Stone if you don't. He hasn't been interviewed yet either. Tell "mother" to prepare for conjugal visits.

I was under the impression prison was like basic training - you don't bring anything with you.

19. How convenient for Pence...no fuss or muss.

He is such a simple man. Stone on the other hand will miss his natty suits. His Nixon tattoo should be a real hit with the other inmates.

10. On November 6, we will see if the U.S.A believes Pence or

those who know that the language that has been used is responsible for this. That language out of the administration, Trump's allies, and Trump himself is awful. We will see on November 6. But if the outcome is very bad for Trump, he will not accept responsibility for this. He will blame the media and the Democratic Party.

16. Pence does Trump's bidding. Hitler used his cult leaders to detach him from Nazi violence.

It's out of the Hitler cult playbook.

Notice how 45's proxies never denounce -- or encourage peace, or law enforcement to bring to justice -- the perpetrators of violence, whether they're Saudis or some armed schlubs wearing 45 cult symbols.

Like 45 with America, Hitler believed that only he could save Germany, but would not put himself forward to do so, so that he could claim that the Nazis were victims of Communist violence. ... and turned the German government into a feuding clique disconnected from society. We see this tapping into a kind of silent blaming of the unarmed among us who expect a safe, peaceful, well-run country. And that's not even just the attitude of 45's cultists anymore.

Whether the adulation of Hitler was genuine or contrived (as it doubtless was in many cases), proxy redirection has the same function. What happened is that millions of Germans who might otherwise have been opposed to, doubtful about, or only marginally committed to the regime and Nazi doctrine were publicly seen to give Hitler their backing. This was crucial to the dynamic of Nazi rule. The same dynamic is true of rule by this self-proclaimed "nationalist" who "spoke plainly."

Any negative impacts, were directed away from Hitler and towards subordinate leaders, such as Goebbels and Rosenberg. At the grass roots, the growth of the Führer cult meant that Hitler could detach himself from policy areas that were unpopular, and exploit immense reserves of personal support practically at will. But in Illinois we see 45 hiding out to stage a policy speech of lies in a jet hangar in the middle of nowhere, Illinois.

To handle any public sympathy for Jews, Pence -- 45's christian proxy -- or Huckabee Sanders, redirects public attention to 45's plain speaking about "usual suspects" -- any "hillary types," false flag democrats, socialists, fake news and enemies.

We have to fight this "nationalist" cowardocracy. Every damn day.

"Tu quoque" is Latin for "you're another". He's also lying.

28. When I saw the first Men In Black movie and got to the scene with the wall...

...full of pictures of prominent people who were actually aliens masquerading as humans, I remember thinking, "This doesn't seem far-fetched at all. It would explain a lot."

If that movie were being made today, Pence, McConnell, and Trump should all have their pictires on that wall.

26. Pence would be many times worse than the crybaby man.

That's why I remain silent on the Impeachment option. In addition, the fact that Congress is not in Democratic control. Even if we win this election by large margins, I am not sure the current Democratic leadership in Congress will pursue this option.
