Republicans are reeling after the comments of a top Democrat in light of recent events.
A deranged Democrat shot House Majority Whip Steve Scalise on Wednesday morning during a Congressional baseball game practice in a targeted attack on Republicans. Rep. Scalise was rushed to the hospital and still remains in critical condition. Many politicians urged unity after, including President Trump in a moving speech.
James Devine, a longtime Democrat strategist in New Jersey, instead decided to rationalize the shooter’s sick motives and even ENCOURAGE partisan violence in others. He wrote on twitter:
“We are in war with selfish, foolish & narcissistic rich people. Why is it a shock when things turn violent #HuntRepublicanCongressmen”
He is literally advocating that Republicans be HUNTED DOWN. This is totally disgusting in the wake of these attacks on Republicans, and just proves how partisan some Democrats have become.
He followed up his bizarre diatribe on Facebook, saying:
He even defended his comments in an interview with MyCentralNewJersey.com, saying:
“If you want to invite a class war, then you have to expect people to fight back at some point.”
There is something seriously wrong with this man, and anyone who advocates the attempted assassination of elected officials. It just proves how violent some Democrats can be.
