More evidence has emerged that proves the Democrats are the party of violence.
In an audio recording released on Thursday, a Nebraska Democrat official was caught saying he was happy Rep. Steve Scalise was shot as he practiced for a charity baseball game, Fox 42 reported.
“His whole job is to get people, convince Republicans to f***ing kick people off f***ing health care. I hate this m*****f***er, I’m glad he got shot,” Phil Montag, a technology chairman for Nebraska’s Democrat Party, said in the recording.
“I’m glad he got shot, I’m not going to f**king say that in public,” he said.
Another unidentified man asked, “well, then what are you saying it to us for?”
“I wish he was f***ing dead,” Montag continued.
“It’s ok, because I’ve been recording this conversation since you’ve come in, so I will publicly release it myself,” the unidentified man said.
Jane Kleeb, the state’s Democrat Party chairwoman, confirmed that it was Montag on the recording.
He has been fired since the recording was released to the public.
“[we] obviously condemn any kind of violence, whether it’s comments on Facebook or comments in a meeting,” Kleeb told Fox 42.
“Our country is better than the political rhetoric that is out there from both the far right and the far left,” she said.
The comments come after a Democrat Party strategist James Devine called on others to “hunt Republican congressman” after the shooting.
And after a Huffington Post writer called for a violent resistance to be more organized.
