Let’s see how quickly the cable news stations are on this story. Funny how the Steve Scalise shooting disappeared from the news after only a few days. There was some talk of “both sides need to cool it” with political rhetoric, but if the following is true, it seems one side has a problem.
A man was arrested for telling staffers to Sen. Jeff Flake that liberals will solve their Republican problem by getting “better aim,” and made a reference to the shooting at a practice for the congressional baseball game last month.
Jason Samuels, Flake’s communications director, told Tuscon News Now a protester was arrested on Thursday morning after making threatening statements to staffers.
“You know how liberals are going to solve the Republican problem? They are going to get better aim,” he said. “That last guy tried, but he needed better aim. We will get better aim.”
The protester was likely referencing last month’s shooting in Alexandria, Virginia.
It all comes back to what Democrats are saying. Look at the Senate health care bill and how Senator Elizabeth Warren called it “blood money” and saying Republicans are seeking to pay for tax breaks with “American lives.”
People will argue, “You can’t blame Warren!”
That is true. It would not be her fault but I draw a direct line between what she says and people like James Hodgkinson feeling fine with the actions they take.
