House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) said Wednesday that Democrats need to denounce violence done in the name of politics, after a man allegedly attempted to stab a GOP congressional candidate in California.
“There’s no place for it. If somebody on the right was doing it, we’d be vocally denouncing it. They need to be denouncing it on the left,” Scalise said on "Fox and Friends."
The assailant in the Tuesday attack allegedly shouted profanities about President Trump before attempting to stab Republican Rudy Peters, who is running in the state's 15th District.
Fox News host Ed Henry also brought up recent confrontations between Trump administration critics and officials that have happened in restaurants and other public places. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) drew criticism in June for encouraging Americans to continue the confrontations, which the critics call harassment.
“They need to be denouncing that kind of activity,” Scalise said.
“You should not incite violence, or any kind of assaulting people based on their political views and especially if it’s somebody who’s working in the administration and you’re attacking them because of what they do and what they believe in," he said. "That’s not what American ideals are about.”
Scalise was critically wounded by gunfire when a man who authorities say was “fueled by rage against Republican legislators” opened fire on him and three others last June.
“Leadership on the Democrats’ side needs to stand up and say this is wrong, no matter what your differences with the president or anybody else, you go and you solve them,” Scalise separately told Fox Business Wednesday. “We’re going to have an election in a few weeks, that’s how you resolve it. You don’t resort to violence.”
Scalise added that Democrats “need to be called out” by the mainstream media.
“If you saw this happen on the right, you know where the mainstream media would be,” Scalise said. “The mainstream media needs to be in the same place, calling this out too, and calling on leaders on the Republican and Democrat side to denounce it.”
The Marxist movement, which is the left in the United States today, will not denounce violence. Marx encouraged revolution. Marx explained that the current society must be destroyed so the Marxist Classless society called for by the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) movement in the United States, can completely rebuild their desired totally conforming and totally equal society.
Collectivist movements, such as we see taking place in the United States today spearheaded by the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) movement, have followed the dictates of Marx and through violence destroyed the existing society. We saw it in Russia, later the Soviet Union, headed by Lenin and then Stalin. We saw it in the Soviet Satellite countries, Hitler’s Germany, Mao’s China, Castro’s Cuba, and now Chavez’s Venezuela. The fundamental transformation of the Untied States called for by Comrade Obama is the same fundamental transformation that took place in the above; the same transformation Marx said must take place to bring about his communist society.
The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) understand that if their desired fundamental transformation is to occur, they must use every means possible, including but not limited to propaganda, deceit, lying, and any and all types of violence. After all they understand that, “the ends always justify the means.”
We Freedom Loving Americans must understand the DNA of the Marxist. We must understand their only standard is a double standard. We must be aware of history and understand how much they despise the American electorate for derailing their plans in 2016. We must work ten times as hard in 2018 to be sure that the Marxist movement does not capture either house of congress. We must enable the building of the wall, the return to the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution of the United States, and the Bill of Rights. We must once again return our schools to systems of education and not systems of indoctrination.
It is a big job, but it is no bigger than the job our founders had before them in the 1770’s and 17780’s. Never forget the rallying cry of Sam Adams, “It does not take a majority to prevail, but a tireless minority committed to setting brush fires of freedom in the minds of men.”
We must be tireless and never stop setting those brush fires of freedom. We will then remain a free and independent people; yes free from the tyranny of government.
