He Hated Republicans

More coming out on the shooting of Steve Scalise this week.  The shooter, who I won't name here, had a list of Republicans in his pocket.
“For those still wondering, he didn’t hate baseball or beautiful summer mornings in June,” White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said in reference to this article. “He hated Republicans.”
There's a meme going around in some circles, that a commie Democrat used a commie rifle with commie ammunition to target Republicans.  Others have noted that he used a rifle not noted for stellar accuracy, probably didn't spend much time on the range, and showed piss-poor marksmanship.  I mean, c'mon, he had good light, an open free-fire zone and managed to only wound four before he was gunned down by professionals.   We should be thankful that he didn't know what-the-hell he was doing.

The bigger metaphor here is that, like most Democrats, he used the wrong tool, employed the wrong tactics, and only managed to hurt people while damaging his own brand.  He was inept and consumed by rage that he couldn't achieve his political objective, and he hurt innocent people in the process.

I am becoming more and more convinced that simply being a Democrat is a mental defect.
