Steve Scalise comments on the El Paso and Dayton shootings. My response . . .

Steve Scalise on twitter about a half hour ago:

These events should be classified as domestic terrorism, and I’m glad that in the case of El Paso, the FBI is treating it as such. We must better equip our law enforcement agencies to prevent these massacres before they happen.


There is clearly a culture of death in America today. Violence is glorified and normalized on our screens every day. Instead of seeking professional help for mental health problems, men are being radicalized in online forums. This must stop.

Dear Steve, please tell that to Trump and make an appointment for him to get help.

 In a media culture that encourages viewing people solely through hyper-partisan lenses, and not as neighbors and fellow citizens, dangerous division and hatred of those you disagree with is the outcome. This can often lead to violent consequences, as I’ve personally experienced.

Dear Steve, please  tell that to Hannity, Carlson, Ingraham, the trio on Fox & Friends, Judge Jeanine, Lou Dobbs, Maria Bartoromo, and the other Trump toadies on Fox.

These events are tragedies. Reducing them to talking points and name-calling in support of narrow political agendas only further divides our country. Jennifer and I pray for the people of El Paso and Dayton. May God help us and heal this great nation.

Dear Steve, see my two previous replies to your tweets.
