Following the recent shooting at a Colorado Planned Parenthood, the liberal media ran stories over supposed “right-wing terrorism” and violence. It’s interesting that when 11,000 were killed by Islamic extremists in 2012 the left was silent, but one isolated incident results in nonsense stories of “right-wing terrorism.” By the way, only 11 people have been killed in abortion-related violence in the entire history of this country. This is hardly a common occurrence.
Ted Cruz wasn’t having any of this nonsense either. On the Hugh Hewitt show he stated:
“And I would note that this whole episode has really displayed the ugly underbelly of the media,” Cruz said. “You know, every time you have some sort of violent crime or mass killing, you can almost see the media salivating hoping, hoping desperately that the murderer happens to be a Republican so they can use it to try to paint their political enemies.”
“Now, listen, here’s the simple and undeniable fact: the overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats. The media doesn’t report that,” he continued.
And he’s right. A survey of prisoners in 2014 showed that approximately 73% vote Democrat. There was no state they looked at where more than 10.2% of prisoners identified as Republican.
