BEENE: Shame on all of us for contributing to this hostile political climate

In the wake of the shooting of House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise (R-Louisiana), “The Richard Beene Show Host” used a segment on his June 14 show to put context to the shooting in a superheated political environment.

Here is an excerpt from Beene’s commentary:

“This thing, typically, predictably, has already become politicized.

“Thank goodness people like Paul Ryan said ‘an attack on one of us is an attack on all of us.”

“I don’t know if my take on this is worth a rusty penny.

“I just think it’s time for everyone to shut up for a second. It’s time for unity and reflection. I will say this shame on us and I mean all of us. Shame on all of us for contributing to this hostile political climate that exists in our country today. Trust me when I tell you there’s plenty of blame to go around and it’s blame spread across the political spectrum.

“I think the president is to blame for his poor choice of words, and the way he depicts so many in the society. I think the entertainers amongst us who think it’s OK to exploit the political divide by resulting to crass insults. Kathy Griffin holding the image of trump’s severed head. The comedians who called Barron Trump retarded. The people who compared Michelle Obama to an ape, or those who depicted Barack Obama, while he was a president, hanging from a tree. The not my president demonstrators on the left and black-hooded anti-fascist protesters who feel it is OK to attack those on the other side.

“Also the radio and TV talk show hosts who result to vulgarity and insults. It’s all of us. Shame on all of us.”
