SMOTI Jim Hoft IDs Kalamazoo Shooter as “Progressive” - He Worked for Progressive Insurance

Amazingly dumb even for Jim

The fabled Stupidest Man on the Internet, Jim “Gateway Pundit” Hoft, has performed another glorious face plant for his knuckle-dragging right wing followers today, identifying the suspect in last night’s terrible random shootings in Kalamazoo, Michigan, as a “progressive leftist:” “Progressive” Jason Brian Dalton Arrested for Random Kalamazoo Shootings After Killing 6 - Was Uber Driver - The Gateway Pundit.

If you’ve followed the hopelessly dumb career of Jim Hoft for any time, you’re probably aware that he does this with every shooting incident or mass murder; tries to pin it on a “leftist.” And I do mean every incident, without fail. He’ll Google for voting records that show the perpetrator once registered as a Democrat, or find a Twitter post where they said something not entirely negative about President Obama, etc. etc.

But this one is destined to go down as a classic in the annals of ridiculous Hoftian stupidity.

Police arrested Jason Brian Dalton last night after killing six people in random shootings. Dalton described himself as a “Progressive” leftist on Facebook.
Do you think that will get any headlines?

Well, Jim, I’m pretty sure that won’t be getting any headlines. Because in fact, the guy you’re claiming is a “progressive leftist” actually was once … an employee of Progressive Insurance.

Yes, that’s the entire basis for Hoft’s attempt to pin this on “progressives.” And if you follow the links in his own blog post, that’s what the articles say. For example, Hoft links to this article at Heavy​.com, where we find:

On his Facebook page, Dalton lists his employer as Progressive Insurance, but it’s not clear if he was still working there.

I hope Jim Hoft never changes, because he’s a one-man example of the determined ignorance of the right wing movement. This is why he wins awards for “Accuracy in Media” from right wing groups.
