It’s really a grand irony in the aftermath of President Trump’s election.
Since time immemorial, the left has caricatured the right as a bunch of fringe, fascist loons toeing the line between caustic political rhetoric and outright political violence.
But wait, now look what’s happening. It’s the Democrats who are embodying the very epithets they’ve hurled at Republicans.
Nebraska Democrat Party co-chair Phil Montag was fired this week for voicing what so many Democrats have said or implied in recent days: that he wishes Rep.
Steve Scalise had died from his gunshot wounds. Sick.
It’s the Democrats who are poisoning the well with disgusting innuendo, threats and conspiracy theories.
Here’s more from Washington Examiner…
An official with the Nebraska Democratic Party was fired Thursday after an audio recording surfaced of him saying he was glad House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., was shot last week.
“His whole job is to get people, convince Republicans to fucking kick people off fucking healthcare,” said Phil Montag, a technology chairman with the state Democratic Party. “I hate this motherfucker. I’m glad he got shot.”
“I wish he was fucking dead,” Montag continued.
Nebraska Democratic Party Chairwoman Jane Kleeb, who confirmed the voice on the recording was Montag’s, said he was fired.
“We obviously condemn any kind of violence, whether it’s comments on Facebook or comments in a meeting,” Kleeb told Nebraska’s Fox 42 KPTM. “Our country is better than the political rhetoric that is out there from both the far right and the far left.”
Scalise suffered a gunshot wound to his left hip after a gunman opened fire on a group of Republican lawmakers, lobbyists and congressional staffers practicing for the annual congressional charity baseball game.
