WaPo Makes Desperate Attempt To Link GOP Shooter To Pro-Trump Radio Host
The Washington Post is suggesting the rhetoric of a “right-wing” radio host may have inspired a man the paper does not acknowledge was a liberal to shoot up a GOP baseball practice in June.
Without a speck of evidence that the shooter and Sen. Bernie Sanders supporter James T. Hodgkinson even listened to Bob Romanik, known for his use of invective and racial epithets, WaPo’s Peter Holley tried desperately to manufacture proof.
The article, reading more like an opportunity to tie Romanik, a “die hard supporter of President Trump,” to the virulent anti-Trump, anti-GOP shooter Hodgkinson, curiously left out his victims’ party affiliation — describing them as “four people shot” at a congressional baseball practice. The reader is provided no background as to Hodgkinson’s political motives, never mentioning he volunteered for Sander’s presidential campaign, nor anything else about his political leanings.
