For John, BLUF: I am sure there are wackos of all stripes. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Jill Stein weighs in on Portland stabbing in Trump’s America; Doesn’t mention attacker was a supporter
Here is the lede plus one:
As Twitchy reported, three men were stabbed, two fatally, in a confrontation on a Portland commuter train with a man who was allegedly shouting anti-Muslim slurs at two young woman, one in a hijab.As the article goes on to explain, the perp didn't vote for Hillary Clinton, nor did he vote for Donald Trump.
The usual suspects weighed in on Twitter, including Hillary Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, and eventually, Dr. Jill Stein, the Green Party’s candidate in 2016.
No, he was a supporter of Senator Bernie Sanders and of Ms Jill Stein. No wonder Ms Stein and her Green Party did so poorly, considering the way she disparages her supporters.
UPDATE: Thinking about this some more, I have decided it is President Trump's fault. He is the one who broke through the PC Barrier and made it possible for people to again express their feelings towards things. Even Progressives and other people on the Alt-Left side of the spectrum.
UPDATE: As in the National Bureau of Economics Research paper, From Extreme to Mainstream: How Social Norms Unravel (Leonardo Bursztyn of the University of Chicago, Georgy Egorov of Northwestern, and Stefano Fiorin of UCLA) (Pay Wall), discussed in this article, "How Trump Affected Political Correctness", from The American Interest.
