A Nebraska Democratic Party official was caught on tape saying he was glad Republican Congressman Steve Scalise got shot.
“i’m glad he got shot,” Phil Montag said. “I wish he was (expletive) dead.”
Fox 42 in Omaha reports Mr. Montag has been removed from his volunteer position in technology with the state party after the recording was made public.
A week ago another Nebraska state Democratic leader had to resign – after she made terrible comments about the shooting.
“Watching the congressman crying on live tv abt the trauma they experienced. Y is this so funny tho,” Chelsey Gentry-Tipton wrote on Facebook. She chairs the state party’s black caucus. “Hard to be empathetic towards those that have no empathy for us. The very people that push pro-NRA legislation in efforts to pad their pockets with complete disregard for human life. yeah, having a hard time feeling bad for them.”
Nebraska Democratic Party chairwoman Jane Kleeb denounced the hateful rhetoric — well, sort of.
“The Democratic party nationwide doesn’t stand for violent rhetoric whether it be from the far right or far left,” she said. “We have a serious problem in our country right now…[I]t is disgusting and we have to find a way as leaders, both as Republicans and Democrats, to work shoulder to shoulder and stop this rhetoric that’s damaging politics.”
Ms. Kleeb is trying to paint this as a Republican and Democrat problem, but it’s not. It’s a Democrat problem.
Democrats have been spewing hateful rhetoric against President Trump and Republicans since before the presidential election. Their minions have bullied and bloodied conservatives from coast to coast. And an untold number of Democratic celebrities have publicly fantasized about killing the president.
Democrats are not only guilty of fomenting hatred, but they are also guilty of endorsing it and promoting it.
I call on the Democratic National Committee to implement mandatory anger management classes for all their members.
They need to learn how to behave like civilized members of society — instead of a bunch of far-left political hacks.
