NY Times blames Orlando killings on...Republicans. Other Dem outlets blame Christians
If you're a liberal or Democrat you probably dismiss that as a paranoid delusion. After all, the shooter wasn't Christian but Muslim, and was a registered Democrat. How in the world could any rational person blame Republicans and Christians? But the Times sees the connection. Here's the quote:
...it is evident that Mr. Mateen was driven by hatred toward gays and lesbians. Hate crimes don’t happen in a vacuum. They occur where bigotry is allowed to fester, where minorities are vilified and where people are scapegoated for political gain. Tragically, this is the state of American politics, driven too often by Republican politicians who see prejudice as something to exploit, not extinguish.Admittedly the Times only blamed Republicans, but other Democrat organs were quite open about blaming Christians too.
