Equating Rhetoric With Violence to Blame Political Opponents for Mass Murder Sprees

By Glen Greenwald

Good evening. It’s Wednesday, December 14, 2022. Welcome to a new episode of System Update, our new live nightly show to air every Monday through Friday at 7 p.m. Eastern, exclusively here on Rumble, the free speech alternative to YouTube.

Tonight, we will begin with an examination of a sleazy, sociopathic but increasingly common tactic trying to blame mass shootings on one’s political opponents by claiming, usually without evidence, that the shooter was, quote, “motivated by those opponents’ ideology”. It’s a tactic as journalistically reckless as it is morally bankrupt, and, for reasons we’ll explain, increasingly dangerous.

And then we’ll look at how Bernie Sanders right on the verge of victory in denying the Biden administration authorization to continue to help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemen, backed down as usual and capitulated because Joe Biden told him to. We’ll speak to one of the most astute left-wing critics of Democratic Party politics and the Squad about this latest humiliation.
