Scalise Blasts Dem Leaders for Being Silent on Assassination

Politics can be a particularly nasty business. And no knows that quite like US Representative Steve Scalise. In June of 2017, a Democratic Bernie Sanders supporter opened fire into a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia where the Louisiana lawmaker and other Republican members of Congress were practicing for a charity game.

While he was shot, as were other four others including a police officer, a congressional aide, and lobbyist, he survived his injuries and lives to tell us all just how dangerous our words and actions can be.

So when he found out about the mock assassination of our president this past weekend at a political fundraising event outside of Chicago, you can bet he had some words on the issue. He even went on “The Ingraham Angle” on Monday to talk about it.

In particular, he had something to say to his colleagues on the left.

While noted that an apology had been made from the Democrat who was directly involved, Illinois state Senator Martin Sandoval, he said he was concerned with the lack of other voices heard on the issue. And he made a point to mention those in leadership and who are vying for headship, such as the presidential candidates, should have been some of the first to condemn the act. Instead, we heard nothing from them.

“What disappoints me is that you don’t see any kind of outrage from the left.”

And he continued, saying, “You don’t see any of the presidential candidates on the left, all the many far-left socialists that are fighting to see who’s going to be able to go up against Donald Trump and spewing all this hatred against Donald Trump, you don’t see any of them denouncing it.”

And you didn’t. We saw plenty of comments on the issue from both sides on social media, some even from Democrat supporters. But not a word was mentioned by those who are supposed to be showing us that they can lead our nation.

And Scalise says “that’s really where it should start. The leadership at the top of the Democratic Party that has been noticeably silent.”

He went on to say, “and I think that’s really the big takeaway from this is that they’re encouraging it, they’re OK with it, and it’s dangerous.”

We couldn’t agree more with his next statement. “It needs to stop.”

And sadly, this isn’t the only recent event in which one side has used violence against the other with no condemnation from the left.

In 2018, two Republicans who were running for local Minnesota offices were attacked in public. Shane Mekeland, running for the House, was punched in the face while speaking in a local restaurant. Rep. Sarah Anderson was also hit by someone who was attempted to destroy her yard signs. And Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his wife were assaulted at a restaurant where they were eating.

Nor is it the first time Scalise has spoken up about this very issue.

And yet the only responses were from those who were attacked and other Republican leaders. The left has remained silent. Well, most of them. Some have spoken out, but it has been to incite even more hate.

Such as Michelle Obama when she said, “When they go low, we kick them.” Or her husband Barack, when he said, “if they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.” Or Hillary Clinton when she stated, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for.”

In what right mind, does this sound ok at all? It isn’t.

Here you have a whole band of leftist politicians who have accused President Trump of inciting violence and hate for words spoken out of context, and all the while Democratic leaders are spouting of much more than mere words.

If I didn’t know any better, I’d say they are calling for such violence. Oh, I don’t know any better. Because every time violence is carried out against Republicans, nothing is said, which means it is deemed as acceptable.

What else is our nation supposed to believe about Democrats if they do nothing to contradict it?

Scalise is demanding that both sides start calling this out. It shouldn’t have to always be the right. “Wherever it’s coming from. If it’s white supremacists, if it’s far-leftists, it’s wrong either way.”

    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my
    own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have
    any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
    Appreciate it!

  85. I am now not sure the place you are getting your info, but good topic.
    I needs to spend a while finding out more or figuring out more.
    Thanks for excellent info I was searching for this
    info for my mission.

  86. We stumbled over here coming from a different page and thought I might check things out.
    I like what I see so i am just following you. Look forward to checking out your web page repeatedly.

  87. To speak out against violence should be normal; but too encourage it is lower than I’ve ever seen the left go. So in response to that I’m calling on all right wing conservatives too respond in kind. We will then see how the left cries out when their side starts falling like flies.

  88. I agree with Scalise and demand that both sides start calling this out and that it shouldn’t have to always be the right.

  89. Listen to the tone of speakers, Mr. Scalise uses facts and bases his comments on truth. The “other side” is screaming, ranting and raging against anyone who has an opinion that differs from them… Red Faced, spittle spewing, emotional bankrupt folks who only want the power, non of the responsibility of the offices they seek. They support the anti’s who are masked terrorists, decry voters with a red hat… Why?? masks are used by people who want identities hidden. Who, those who know they are wrong or are on a swat team. Good on the swat teams that are guided by law. Cheers to those whose brains are in charge of emotions.

  90. I like what you are saying, enough is enough. Stop the bullying, name calling and fabrications, lets do what we all need to get this country on steady footing.

  91. What a disgrace the Democratic Party has become openly promoting violence bigotry hate lies and attacks on or constitution federal courts and the right to life now for the born child
    And right now they condone anything that will destroy or country and move to a socialistic country what a truly disaster to the free world and freedom and the rights to all the people of the United States

  92. These far left liberals take the high ground of morality. They’re for abortions, gay marriages, disrespecting the flag, bringing in more Muslims to destroy the country, and taking our guns away so that we can’t protect ourselves from criminals and those who want to destroy our country. But it’s all right to joke about assassinating the president even if it’s a federal crime and just plain evil.

  93. Democrats are heartless, moraless and worthless individuals – PERIOD! I pray for the dissolve of the Democrat party in the United States because the Democrat party is a domestic terrorist organization plain and simple!
    TRUMP2020

  94. I never thought one of our political party would entice violence and crime. We have a democracy not a dictatorship. Why is that allowed. These [people should have been arrested.
    The democrats used to be decent people with just a different opinion of how things should be run. They have become cold and Godless.

  95. HELLO
    While I grew up in a safe country , where i felt safe to walk to the little store for my mom which dipped snuff, bringing a couple off eggs to exchange for a box off snuff.
    The store was maby 3 miles there and 3 miles back ! There was never { for 16 years } any cause to be afraid ! Can we say this to day ? i do not feel we can .
    At the ripe old age off 85 < I now feel afraid to walk around in my area for fear off being attacted ! This does not come from just people that come into my area , it comes from my Goverment, doctors , meds , food, and i could go on and on !
    Tell me if this is to be far the rest of my LIFE ? ! I PRAY NOT !

  96. I would love to post this on FB. So is it ok to copy and paste, so tha tthe world will see just what the DemocRATS stand for?

  97. In the slight chance that America is now a free cheese welfare state and some socialist maggot is elected, I will pull out all of the stops and mock their porcine excrement president.

  98. I am proud to have Steve Scalise representing Louisiana. We need more patriots like him in Congress. I did not know about the rally but to me, their actions are the same as treason or in the least inciting a riot and some arrests should have followed the incident.

  99. Did any of the elected officials who were attacked defend themselves, if not, how come. Re the attackers arrested and charged? Again, if not how come?
