Just a day following the devastating shooting that critically injured House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and several bystanders at a GOP baseball practice, liberal democrats are calling for unity with their republican colleagues; conveniently ignoring the hyper-partisan rhetoric and political hate-speech spewed at President Trump since the 2016 general election.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi offered her thoughts and prayers on twitter, writing, “On days like today, there are no Democrats or Republicans, only Americans united in our thoughts for the wounded.” Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders released a statement saying he was “sickened by this despicable act.”
Liberals may be calling for political harmony in the wake of the tragedy that unfolded in Alexandria, Virginia, but that’s not what the American public has seen from the left in recent months.
Here’s a list of political hate-speech from the left; ignored or endorsed by prominent democrats, members of the media, or Hollywood celebrities.
