Despite the shooting in Colorado being called a “Planned Parenthood shooting by an anti-abortionist”, Texas Senator and Presidential candidate Ted Cruz offered his condolences to the victims.
Praying for the loved ones of those killed, those injured & first responders who bravely got the situation under control in Colorado Springs

In response with typical fashion, leftists actually blamed Cruz for the shooting.
@tedcruz shame on you, Cruz. Push for guns and hate on women and this is what you'll get.

@tedcruz This blood is on your hands. You pushed the lies and the rhetoric. You continued the anti-PP narrative.

@tedcruz Stop your extremist rhetoric. It's getting people killed.

Apparently Ted would have been criticized either way by these leftists. If he didn’t say anything, they would attack him for being silent on the issue. If he did say anything, as he has, then they blame him for the actual shooting.
This attack on candidates like Ted Cruz is typical because the left is very scared of his rise in the polls, and poses a serious threat to Hillary or Bernie in the general election next year.
