Following the shooting of Republican Representative Steve Scalice, there have been bipartisan calls for unity. Unfortunately, those have been punctuated by more calls for violence from Democrats, such as the New Jersey Democratic strategist who is urging people to “hunt Republicans.”
The worst part? He’s absolutely not sorry about it either. He’s completely dehumanized the other side and thinks it’s okay to advocate murder based on political differences.
He’s clearly mentally ill.
In a statement to MyCentralJersey.com, James Devine said that his Twitter postings calling for the “hunt” of Republican Congressmen “speaks for itself. Yesterday’s events are the result of escalating rhetoric and vitriol that has been evident in our political system culminating with the election of our president and the chickens came home to roost, you know?”
He also said that it is insensitive, and I don’t care. You want me to be politically correct? I don’t have time for that anymore. I’m not apologizing if it offended snowflake Republicans.”
