What an ass. Really. Giving credence to the political ideology of the shooter is as asinine as it gets.
On Saturday, Reid discussed Scalise's positions on ObamaCare and gay marriage as some of the concerning "moral" issues she felt needed to be discussed as he lay close to death.
Scalise was shot at the GOP baseball practice on June 14th and received critical injuries.
Trying to sound as if she gave a damn about Scalise's condition, Reid said, "There's a whole country out there and a lot of people, at least in my Twitter timeline, and it's a delicate thing, because everybody is wishing the congressman well and hoping he recovers, but Steve Scalise has a history that we've all been forced to sort of ignore in race."
The race-baiter went on: "He also co-sponsored a bill to amend the Constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman. He co-sponsored the House healthcare bill, which as you said would gut healthcare for millions of people including three million children and he co-sponsored a bill to repeal the ban on semiautomatic weapons. Because he is in jeopardy and everybody is pulling for him, are we required in a moral sense to put that aside in the moment?"
No moron--you are required, in an ethical sense, to wait for him to recover to the point at which he can debate the garbage that comes out of your mouth.
Leftists have to make the point that conservatives want to see children die and everyone without healthcare. They make the point that in spite of people's religious beliefs, that only they have the moral high ground while they go about the business of killing unborn babies.
Reid doesn't have the courage to go head-to-head with anyone whose head has a functioning brain in it and just because she's black, doesn't give her the excuse to spout her racist horse crap.
Everything is identity politics to the left because their policies suck.
Reid tweeted: "Rep. #Scalise was shot by a white man with a violent background and saved by a black lesbian police officer, and yet...#AMJoy."
She made the effort to identify the police officer's sexual orientation but as a political wonk, she never identified James Hodgkinson's left-leaning orientation.
Convenient and very hypocritical.
