Echoing a sickeningly common sentiment among the Left’s most hateful vile online trolls, a Democratic Party official in Nebraska has been caught on tape applauding last week’s shooting spree carried out by a liberal activist who targeted Republican members of Congress as they practiced for a baseball game. Not to be confused with a separate Nebraska Democrat who expressed amusement at the shooting — tying her glee to a disagreement over gun rights, and later doubling down — this cretin expressed bitter disappointment that James Hodgkinson didn’t finish the job in assassinating House Majority Whip Steve Scalise.
A Nebraska Democratic Party official is now in hot water. An audio recording was posted on YouTube Thursday with Phil Montag, a technology chairman, voicing how glad he was that House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., got shot last week at a GOP baseball practice. Nebraska Democratic Party Chairwoman Jane Kleeb confirmed to FOX 42 News Thursday it was really his voice. “His whole job is to get people, convince Republicans to (expletive) kick people off (expletive) health care. I’m glad he got shot,” said Montag in the audio recording. Montag is now looking for a new job; Kleeb let him go after the recording became public. “I wish he was (expletive) dead,” said Montag in the recording.
For the crime of following through on a campaign pledge to replace a failing law, Phil Montag wished death upon Rep. Scalise. Montag was fired after his comments were publicly revealed, and has since been let go by his ‘day job’ employer, as well. In New Jersey, a Democratic operative started a #HuntRepublicans social media hashtag, justifying violence against elected GOP officials. Under Democrat-imposed media rules, every leading Democrat should be asked about these comments and actions. Republicans are routinely inundated with press questions whenever anyone steps out of line on the center-right, from a failed Senate candidate in Missouri, to a radio talk show host not running for office, to a low-profile Capitol Hill staffer. Democrats must live under the same standards. As such, reporters should beat a trail to Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s door to get her reaction to all of this as soon as possible.
