Since we'll before November's election the rhetoric coming from the left has been laced with words of violent connotation. With Hillary's humiliation at the polls the connotations have become implications and justifications that have now become escalations from assaults with fists and baseball bats to the use of firearms with murderous intent.
Yesterday's shooting did not occur in a vacuum. From Kathy Griffin's stunningly callous photo shoot to the completely unveiled call for the assassination of the President in New York's Theater in the Park presentation, the provocation curve has moved into the near vertical. What did they think was going to happen?
I have not the slightest doubt that an exploration of the internet history of yesterday's would be assassin will reveal his having visited numerous sites displaying the most overt calls to bloody violence. How then are Hodgkinson's actions any different from that of some domestic Jihadist, radicalized by the internet or his local Imam? It is the simplest and most obvious of parallels but don't expect the MSM or any Democrat to acknowledge its clearly exists.
