Journalist Chuck Todd shared some words of wisdom on MSNBC Wednesday, saying that reactions to the Virginia shooting served as a reminder that “we are all to blame” for how toxic political discourse is these days.
Plenty of blame has been going around in the wake of an attack by a gunman on GOP members of Congress Wednesday as they practiced in a baseball field in Virginia. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was shot in the hip and has had to undergo surgery after the attack, while four other people were hit, including lobbyist Matt Mika, who was shot multiple times in the chest.
“Folks, some want to blame the left or the right or us in the media. But here’s who it seems too many folks don’t want to blame: themselves,” Todd said on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily” on Wednesday. “We are all to blame. This toxic stew that passes for political discourse seems beyond repair in the current moment.”
Glenn Beck, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere listened to his comments on Thursday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” and Glenn reminded everyone that we have to decide as individuals how we react to horrifying events.
It’s up to each of us to better our society by giving up the need to be outraged at people, Glenn asserted.
