Progressive Democrat minority leader Nancy Pelosi is absolutely beside herself that the Left is getting called out for radicalizing the progressive terrorist who attempted a mass assassination of Republican members of Congress on Wednesday.
Pelosi was asked by a reporter at a Thursday press conference whether the shooting of Republican Congressmen Steve Scalise, who remains in critical condition, could backfire against Democrats who are being accused of inspiring the progressive terrorism.
“Can you comment on the possibility that this incident could be used against Democrats or the Democratic Party politically because the assailant was apparently motivated by some kind of anti-Republican sentiment and we have heard comments from Republicans, including Congress, about vitriol rhetoric from the left being in some way to blame?” Pelosi was asked.
Pelosi was outraged, livid and self-righteous in her response.
“How dare they say such a thing,” she replied. “How dare they!”
As you can see from screenshots we were able to obtain from James T. Hodgkinson’s Facebook page before it was taken down, Hodgkinson had Bernie Sanders as his header as well as a meme deceptively twisting the words “We the People” to somehow mean “Democratic Socialism” (communism that sounds nicer) as his Facebook photo:
Progressive leftists, Marxists and communists have long used violent rhetoric that risks inspiring such acts as we saw on Wednesday.
In 2008, Barack Obama said, “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”
More recently, in April of this year, a progressive professor called for the execution of Republican congressmen and for President Donald Trump to be hung.
For his part, Bernie Sanders, who honeymooned in the communist Soviet Union during the Cold War and was likely radicalized there, has often called for a “political revolution” in America, which has violent overtones obviously (Revolutionary War).
In March, former Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch called for more marching, blood, and death on the streets.
