The Antifa ICE bomber used the exact same rhetoric as AOC.
The Ballfield shooter tried to assassinate members of Congress. Are we going to pretend that wasn't politically motivated?
A) he was killed
B) Does AOC run a network cable news show?
C) Sanders disavowed the shooter - obviously

So you tell me, what is the excuse of the conservative media stars, who reach millions of people, for using such incendiary language over and over again? After El Paso shooting now Mexicans/Lation's fear for their very lives. We are not talking about one or two people here. We are talking about most of the conservative pundits.

And why do you keep avoiding answering that question? And instead bring up Antifa, again?

Neither do the editors of the New York Times, trying to use a mass shooting to dunk on conservatives.
It's not just the El Paso shooting - from my link.

The replacement theory was prominent in a document posted on 8chan by the suspect in the massacre that killed 51 people in a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, in March.

The man who is alleged to have killed 11 people in a Pittsburgh synagogue last October had expressed his contempt for “invaders” before he opened fire on the congregation with an AR-15-style assault rifle, the authorities say. During the white supremacist demonstrations in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017 that left one woman dead, marchers shouted, “You will not replace us.”

Mr. Carlson, whose show averages about three million viewers a night, has featured guests who subscribe to the replacement theory, like Peter Szijjarto, the foreign minister to Hungary’s nationalistic president, Viktor Orban. In February, Mr. Carlson and Mr. Szijjarto discussed the need to increase birthrates in their respective countries. Otherwise, Mr. Carlson said, “our plan here in the West is to just let the depressed people die off and replace them with people from other countries.”

Another prime-time Fox News host, Laura Ingraham, who was considered for a communications job in the Trump administration, has used similar language. Last October, she warned viewers that their opinions “will have zero impact and zero influence on a House dominated by Democrats who want to replace you, the American voters, with newly amnestied citizens and an ever-increasing number of chain migrants.”

The overlap between fringe ideology and the words of conservative talk show hosts is not accidental, critics say. “They’re putting that into the zeitgeist,” said Carl Cameron, the former chief political correspondent for Fox News, who is now working for a news aggregator aimed at a progressive audience, Front Page Live.

“Fox goes out and looks for stuff that is inherently on fire and foments fear and anger,” Mr. Cameron added.

Maybe the media should rethink publishing manifestos then. Since there are copycats. We've known that all along. But no, they'd rather lecture people who had nothing to do with the shooting.

Again, they DID NOT publish it. Only a few snippets.

But I see you keep avoiding anything towards the conservative "herd" Even when Coulter said they should be shot. And a former Fox correspondent confirms all they do is peddle in fear and anger.

Boards like 8 chan and Daily Stormer eat that kind of stuff up.

So? How does that make what he did ok? And Ocasio-Cortez has a large voice in the political process. She's arguable the most well known member of Congress not in leadership. People hear what she says.
C) Sanders disavowed the shooter - obviously
And Trump disavowed the El Paso shooter. But for some reason, that's the end of the story for a leftist but they won't let it go for a conservative.

So you tell me, what is the excuse of the conservative media stars, who reach millions of people, for using such incendiary language over and over again?

Did they directly call for violence? No? Then they aren't responsible. No one is responsible for violence unless they directly commit or abet the act or directly call for it. The media seems to get that when it comes to left wingers. But not when it comes to the right.

And the Mercer media empire donates hundred of millions to various conservative media to keep the base roiled up.
While sites like The Federalist spin every issue into being a victim /oppresser situation with the Trump supporters taking the victim roll of being oppressed by those nasty SJWs.
