The #NewTone is alive and well in reaction to today’s Capitol Hill car chase and shooting.
It’s now being reported that all shots at the scene were fired by police officers and none by the suspect, but that hasn’t stopped some from not only blaming the NRA and Tea Party for the incident, but also tweeting about their sick fantasies revolving around hatred for the NRA, Tea Party, Ted Cruz and other Republicans:
Shooting near the Capitol. Surprise? Was someone coming for Cruz?

Unbelievable RT @BigMartyF: @Reuters Sadly, not one shot hit Ted Cruz, John Boehner, Justice Scalia, or any of the other goddam idiots…

An entire Twitter account seems to have been deleted over this one:
Too late RT @JDeisen: Whoa, tweet deleted. Just kidding, NSA. And FBI. And CIA. Would never advocate violence against anyone.

We now return you to being lectured by the Left about the “new tone.”
