... One cannot make sense of Wednesday’s atrocious shooting of GOP Congressman Steve Scalise, La., without understanding the philosophical thinking behind it, says CRTV personality and former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino.

... Bongino delved into how violence became so prominent in our politics – and what has to change for it to stop.
The problem is not necessarily a partisan one, Bongino explained, but a philosophical one. The key thing to understand, he says, is “critical theory” – a strain of philosophy which “has infected the far-Left portion of the Democrat Party … "
What this theory does, Bongino explained, is convince people that political discourse is not one about good and bad ideas, but about good and bad people, which has led to some people on the far-Left embracing and normalizing violence and intimidation against one’s political opponents.
“It teaches their followers … this idea that this is not a battle of political ideas, it’s a battle of good and bad people,” Bongino explained. “And the bad people are the Republicans and they need to be taken out.”
