On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher commented on the Congressional baseball shooting by stating that you wouldn’t think something like that would happen on the left.
Maher said, “[T]he shooting this week, it was a liberal. It was a Bernie Sanders supporter. I mean, it’s odd, we live in a strange country. We would never really think this would happen on the left. We think of the right as the people who pick up guns and do crazy things like this. is it significant that this was a liberal, someone who watched MSNBC all day? Not that they’re to blame either, because they certainly are not.”
Later in the discussion, Maher stated that neither the majority of liberals nor the majority of conservatives look to violence as a solution.
