On Friday, Circa.com reported that Phil Montag, former co-chair of the Nebraska state Democrat party’s technology committee, was caught on audio saying in no uncertain therms that he’s glad GOP Rep Steve Scalise was shot by Bernie Sanders supporter James Hodgkinson and wished for his death.
“I’m glad he got shot. I’m not f**king saying that in public. I wish he was f**king dead,” he said in the captured audio.
Here’s video of his statement (Warning: Extremely graphic language.):
Circa News added:
Montag was relieved of his volunteer duties after Nebraska Democratic Party Chair Jane Kleeb received audio recording of Montag’s comments obtained by The World-Herald.
“Wishing a Member of Congress or any individual dead is disgusting and has no place in our party,” Kleeb said.
In an interview Thursday, Montag said he was “horrified” by the shooting of Scalise and all gun violence and that his words were edited to be taken out of context. “I did not call for the congressman’s death,” Montag said.
Montag isn’t the first Nebraska Democrat to come under fire for over-the-top rhetoric regarding Rep. Scalise, as Fox 42 reported:
A Nebraska Democratic Party leader is now being asked to step down.
That’s after she posted on Facebook that she didn’t much care about Congressman Steve Scalise being shot on Wednesday.
Those posts are now deleted, but not before FOX 42 got to see them.
“Watching the congressman crying on live tv abt the trauma they experienced. Y is this so funny tho?”
That’s the comment Chelsey Gentry-Tipton left on Facebook. She’s the chairwoman for the Nebraska Democratic Party Black Caucus.
“Hard to be empathetic towards those that have no empathy for us. The very people that push pro NRA legislation in efforts to pad their pockets with complete disregard for human life. Yeah, having a hard time feeling bad for them,” Gentry-Tipton added.
Isn’t that nice?
“This is the Democrat party. They have no value for human life whatsoever,” Cristina Laila wrote at the Gateway Pundit. It sure looks like that’s the case.
Of course, these aren’t isolated incidents as we’ve reported here, here, here, here, here, here and here. Despite what some Democrats may say, the fact is that liberals are glad Scalise got shot, and would no doubt love to see more Republicans targeted by liberal domestic terrorists.
Which, of course, prompts us to wonder: Besides native language, what’s the real difference between far-left Democrats and ISIS?
