    Dem Strategist: Scalise Shooting “Natural Culmination” of Republican Rule

    Dem Strategist: Scalise Shooting “Natural Culmination” of Republican Rule

    No wonder Tucker told Devine he was an “unbalanced person”

    James Devine—the Dem strategist who tweeted #HuntRepublicanCongressmen in the hours following the shooting of Republican Congressman Steve Scalise—was a guest on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show last night. Devine’s rambling and confused argument ultimately led Tucker to tell Devine that he is an “unbalanced person.”

    But listen carefully to what Devine said, and you’ll detect what amounts to his justification of the Scalise shooting. He first quotes Sen. Rand Paul [whom Devine twice calls “Paul Rand”] to the effect that the purpose of the Second Amendment is to permit people to “shoot at a tyrannical government.”

    Devine then argued that Republican policies have constituted “tyrannical government.” And so, repeatedly declared Devine, the shooting of Scalise constituted a “natural culmination.” Sounds much like a defense of the shooting, or at the least, as Carlson called it, rendering the shooting “understandable.”

    JAMES DEVINE: One of the persons that was on that field, who spoke about what a terrible thing that was, was Senator Rand Paul —

    TUCKER CARLSON: How? What does that mean?

    DEVINE: — Senator Rand Paul retweeted something from Andrew Napolitano that said, the reason we have a Second Amendment is not so people can hunt deer, it’s so that they can shoot at a tyrannical government.

    TUCKER: So what’s your point? That he deserved it? Is that what you’re saying?

    DEVINE: No, absolutely not. But my point is that when you put up obstacles to people voting, when you secretly plot in the Senate to repeal health care that’s keeping 50,000 Americans alive, and you are otherwise erecting barriers to the democratic process, where we have elections where the people that get the most votes don’t win —

    TUCKER: That you should be shot?

    DEVINE: No! But that is tyrannical government. That’s the point.

    TUCKER: It’s understandable when you’re shot?

    DEVINE: It’s the natural culmination

    TUCKER: Stop with the talking points. Just get to what you’re saying. Are saying. Are you saying that it’s understandable that someone might shoot you if you do that?

    DEVINE: It’s a natural combination of the argument that was made by Judge Napolitano and Senator Paul Rand. If Senator Paul Rand would like to sit down —

    TUCKER: Rand Paul.

    When unbalanced nutcases attack Democrats, it is the fault of conservative Republicans for egging them on, drawing cross-hairs on liberal targets, and other such dog-whistle incitements to violence.

    When unbalanced nutcases attack Republicans, it is the fault of conservative Republicans for driving the poor crazies into such fits of rage that they strike back at their oppressors.

    Is that about right for the MSM?

      Nope, it is just simple arithmetic. Guns are real easy to come by. There are nuts and unbalanced types of every political persuasion – like the white supremacist who shot up a church of decent law abiding blacks. Gabby Giffords and her aides were shot up.

      Now some of the left-wing crazies are going to start coming out – maybe a lot of them. Do I condone it? No. Am I going to cry when its a right-wing congressman on the wrong end? No. Besides what can I do? By any sane standard this guy shouldn’t have been anywhere near a gun. But you guys don’t want any rules.

      People on this site were making threats when they thought Clinton was going to win. 2 Kennedys and MLK got killed and it changed history. RFK would have kicked Nixon’s butt. So please tell me why I should care. Yes, please tell me why I should care.

        Whatever politics Loughner espoused in his ramblings tended to lean to the left.

        To tie him to the right in any way shape or form is an outright lie and you damn well know it

    Or just skip all that silly stuff, declare them inconvenient life similar to how they view the unborn and the elderly, and just deny them air to breathe. Liberalism wins again!
