Skip to comments.Scalise attack was 'to some degree self-inflicted' claims CBS's Scott Pelley
Posted on 06/19/2017 1:21:13 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Thursday evening, CBS's Scott Pelley, who officially ended his tenure as the network's Evening News anchor the following evening, told viewers that "It's time to ask whether the attack on the United States Congress Wednesday was foreseeable, predictable and, to some degree, self-inflicted."
It's clear from Pelley's subsequent commentary that his answers to all three elements are "Yes." It's equally clear from the examples he supplied as support that he sees (or wants viewers to see) the problem as predominantly about the conduct of those on the right.
It's time to ask whether the attack on the United States Congress, yesterday, was foreseeable, predictable and, to some degree, self-inflicted.
Too many leaders, and political commentators, who set an example for us to follow, have led us into an abyss of violent rhetoric which, it should be no surprise, has led to violence.
Yesterday was not the first time.
In December last year, a man with an assault rifle stormed into a Washington-area pizzeria to free child sex slaves whom Hillary Clinton was holding there -- or at least that's what political blog sites had said. He fired into a locked door to discover no children in chains.....

They kicked him off of the evening slot the next day Vet?
Good if they did.
Hmmm, so if I don’t like what he says and I shoot him, then did he “self inflict the crime” because I didn’t like what he said? Do these people actually know what they are saying.
Anyone who truly believes this is too delusional and biased to be able to report the news objectively.
Well he already knew his anchor job was at an end, it wasn’t because of this. He is a dull Libtard twit and even CBS couldn’t endure his low ratings any longer.
It’s time to ask if the assassination propaganda spewing left wing stooges would be self inflicted. What say you Scott?
Good. I hope he ends up homeless.
He’s smug and arrogant like Dan Rather, but worse.
Obviously national Republicans agree with Pelley. Democrats and the MSM told Republicans to stand down and not “politicize” this eminently political assassination attempt. Republicans, as usual, got spooked and obediently went out publicly stating that all sides had to tamp down the rhetoric.
I am simply blown away at how cowardly Republicans are and how obedient they always are to their Democrat masters.
We can definitely say that “Scott Pelley’s loss of his anchor career was self-inflicted!”
He sux, and even See-BS finally figured that out.
Democrats lik JFK, RFK, and Gifford are victims.
Republicans who get shot deserve it.
Little Scotty the #fakenews guy needs a swift kick in the ass.
I guess its open season then.
It was previously announced that he was being replaced, like 10 days ago.
Question. Did he have the same opinion when Gabby Giffords got shot [FYI, by a liberal].
Accordingly, a thug who breaks into a home to rob it and kills the home owner in the process, it’s the home owner’s fault he got murdered because he was home at the wrong time?
If Scott Pelly is on the sidewalk and someone walking by decides to kick his ass, it’s Scott Pelly’s fault for being Scott Pelly. I like that idea.
I'm quite sure these liberals never think their vapid scenarios through to their logical conclusions, they only acknowledge or breathlessly consider the immediate effects of such ideology.
There are always the unintended or unanticipated results just a few more steps down the path they set out. The idiots.
No. Gifford’s was the Republicans’ fault. In fact, it was Palin’s fault.
Looked at his sign-off youtube video. You can’t believe the number of people who posted who think that he was ‘great’ and will miss him.
Our free speech is violence
Their violence is free speech
If they keep pushing this Pelley is not going to like our new rules
They are all trying to sound reasonable at the expense of the truth. Trump tells it like it is. They are cowards and pansies and we need to get rid of them.
