There has been no shortage of individuals and institutions that have sought to capitalize on the shootings in Tucson. Add Vermont senator Bernie Sanders to that list.
This afternoon Sanders sent out a fundraising appeal, seeking to raise money to fight Republicans and other “right-wing reactionaries” responsible for the climate that led to the shooting.
The democrats are playing this sad event for all it is worth and while they focus on the one representative they exclude the other victims so they can make money and political points off this.
Never mind that others were shot, including a republican judge for all intents and purposes this is gift wrapped chance to replenish coffers and to blame their opponents for the actions of a disturbed individual.
As in the past, it has been clear that facts have no bearing when it comes to playing this game of demonizing republicans.
