Video of the Day: Democrat pundit says Republican governor, legislature should be shot

While appearing on a local PBS station, Democratic pundit Chris Herstam, said Arizona’s Republican governor and legislature “should be shot” if they refuse to modify that state’s election processes in light of the coronavirus pandemic, The Blaze reported.

“If they don’t change the state statute to allow for an all-mail election system for the primary and general election this year, they should be shot, because that’s the only common sense thing to do,” he said.

Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., a Republican who was shot by a crazed Bernie Sanders supporter, responded:

The Blaze said Herstam, who, by the way, once served as a state lawmaker, apologized for his comments:

Herstam apologized following a flurry of denunciations from political observers around the country and his home state.

“In an effort to make a point about the important of all-mail voting this week in light of COVID-19, I made hyperbolic and inappropriate statements that have no place in political discourse. I apologize for making them,” he wrote on Friday morning.

Herstam made the comments while calling for the state’s various elections departments to move to a vote-by-mail system in light of the coronavirus pandemic. Voters are scheduled to vote on Tuesday in the state’s Democratic primary, but some activists are calling local counties to adopt all-mail ballots as alternatives as a back-up plan for an upcoming election in August and November’s general election.

I’ve repeatedly said since February 2011 that liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of bloodthirsty insane rage and hate.  Even though he apologized, Herstam just proved that assertion correct.
