Left-Wing Journalist Shot Dead, Old Tweets Show Anti-Cop, Pro-Crime Timeline: ‘Cursed Tweet’

A reportedly left-wing journalist has been tragically shot dead in his Philadelphia, PA home.

It is important to note that the subject matter in this article may be sensitive for some readers.

Reporter Andy Ngo broke the news first:

“Breaking: Leftist journalist and activist Josh Kruger @JoshKrugerPHL has been tragically shot dead at his Philadelphia home.

“Kruger has long downplayed gun violence in his city and publicly chastised others who spoke about it.”


Ngo added details and context:

“Philadelphia leftist journalist & activist Josh Kruger @JoshKrugerPHL was tragically shot dead at his home.

“He has long criticized law enforcement, downplayed gun violence in his city & advocated for political violence against his opponents.”



Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert, had previously been insulted by Kruger, for implying that voting Democrats into office may increase crime in big cities.

This insult came two days ago.

Adams said in 2020: “If Biden is elected, there’s a good chance you will be dead within the year.”

Kruger did a follow-up a couple of days ago, implying that Adams was wrong:

“The Dilbert dude is like Nostradamus.

“Look at this prediction from 2020. Wow. Eerie.”

Adams noted the news and put the pieces together. Some may see this as insensitive and some may not:

“Oops. Did not realize he was shot to death yesterday for not getting away from the hellhole in which he lived.”


One X/Twitter user posted: “Cursed tweet”.



It may be seen as unfair to directly link and correlate political opinions with direct tragedies.

Others may feel as though it’s fair game to point it out as they feel they are losing their country and safety.

At the end of the day, we hope the violence will end and policies that stop it will be encouraged.
