Wa-Po links GOP ballpark shooter rampage to conservative radio host

The Washington Post, once a venerated bastion of objective journalism, has devolved into a leftist propaganda wing of the Democratic party.

The only problem is, its attempt to hurt the GOP keeps blowing up in its face. In its latest self-destructive salvo, the Post tried to blame an obscure conservative radio host for leftist gunman James Hodgkinson‘s attempted assassination of Congressman Steve Scalise and other GOP lawmakers.

In a piece entitled “In Alexandria shooter’s hometown, rage-filled radio host channels middle America’s inner frustration,” the Washington Post’s Peter Holley feebly attempted to tie Hodgkinson’s shooting rampage to the rhetoric spewed by bigoted radio host Bob Romanik.

Romanik is a controversial shock jock from Belleville, Illinois, the former hometown of James Hodgkinson. Predictably, the Washington Post offered NO EVIDENCE that Hodgkinson ever listened to Bob Romanik, or even knew who he was.

When reached for comment, Romanik — who most people have never heard of — tried to showboat for his 15 minutes of fame by bragging, “I can’t say for sure if this Hodgkinson guy listened to me, but he probably did.”

This is what passes for a Washington Post “news” article these days? “He probably did.”  The article was so inane that a political editor from leftist website BuzzFeed was disgusted.

“What’s the point of this?” Katherine Miller tweeted. “The shooter hated Trump and there’s no indication in the story he listened to this pro-Trump host.”

It’s common knowledge that James Hodgkinson was a volunteer for Bernie Sanders‘ campaign and an avowed fan of left-wing cable news network MSNBC. His favorite was Rachel Maddow.

If anything, the deranged gunman was baptized and radicalized by left-wing media. But don’t tell WaPo that, since it’s too busy spinning imaginary fairy tales.

Not surprisingly, the Post was trashed for its ridiculous, transparent, and unsuccessful attempt to blame conservative media for Hodgkinson’s attempted assassination of Republican lawmakers.

Meanwhile, Congressman Steve Scalise remains in intensive care after being shot in the hip in June.



Remember this? There are countless other fake news stories WaPo has bleated, but that would take too long to list.
