Democrat Eric Swalwell is beaten for trying to frame Republicans for a church shooting

California Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell was met with a backlash of ridicule after he tried to blame Republicans for a horrific shooting at a church in California.

Police were still investigating the shooting at the Geneva Presbyterian Church in Laguna Woods on Sunday, when Swalwell believed the attacker’s motivation had something to do with the Republican Party.

“Sorry @housegop the parishioners tied up your boy.” tweeted Swalwell, adding a hashtag for “Sorry not sorry” and a link to the story documenting community members tying up the suspect.

The police on Monday called that they believed the suspect had attacked the church out of hostility towards the Taiwanese people, calling it a “politically motivated hate incident”.

They identified the attacker as David Chou, 68. Chou is an immigrant from China and lived in several places in the United States before ending up in Las Vegas, Nevada. His bail was set at $1 million.

Critics of Swalwell rushed to condemn the Democrat for blaming Republicans with no evidence to prove his claim.

“The shooter came from mainland China … and targeted Taiwanese-American Christians. Sounds like he was more your boy, Congressman.” read a popular answer.

“I’m starting to think you’re just an all-around horrible human being who needs to re-evaluate your whole life.” answered Commentator Justin Haskins.

“A representative openly celebrates the death of an innocent person,” it read Another tweet. “Miserable POS.”

“You are a terrible, terrible person” read another answer.

“This guy might not be the dumbest member of Congress, but he probably is.” answered another critic.

made others jokes referring to Swalwell’s past relationship with a woman later revealed to be a Chinese spy.

One man was killed and four others injured in Sunday’s attack. Police hailed former pastor Billy Chang as a hero for fighting back the attacker and likely preventing far more casualties.
