MSNBC’s Joy Reid suggests Rep. Steve Scalise deserved to be shot due to conservative record

On Saturday, MSNBC propagandist Joy Reid angered a numbered of people when she suggested that Rep. Steve Scalise deserved to be shot because of his voting record.

“Rep. was shot by a white man with a violent background, and saved by a black lesbian police officer, and yet…” she wrote, in a tweet with a graphic of Scalise’s record.

The implication is clear.  According to Reid, Scalise apparently deserved to get shot because of his conservative voting record.

Her message didn’t sit too well with many:

One person asked:

But does it really matter?  Scalise is a Republican, and that, according to the alt-left media propagandists, is all that matters.

It’s more than despicable.  This, sadly, is the modern left, which is increasingly becoming more and more like Middle Eastern terrorists.

One person noted:

That’s pretty much the case.

And they’re being motivated to do so by propagandists in the Democrat-media complex like Reid.

Reid isn’t the only one to use this despicable talking point.  As Twitchy noted, Star Trek actor George Takei, a legend in his own alleged “mind,” adopted a similar take, claiming the shooting was some kind of justice brought by the universe, or something…

Twitchy noted:

The presence of two DC Capitol Police officers who were assigned to guard House Majority Whip Steve Scalise at a congressional baseball practice undoubtedly saved many lives that day, but it’s never too soon for some to try and score a political point after something so awful…

Of course, what neither Takei nor Reid understood is this one point:

Hmmm…  One would think these liberals would consider that.  Oh, wait…

Bingo.  The same could be said of Reid…
