By now you have heard about the shooter who showed up at the congressional baseball game and opened fire on all the Republicans on the field. If not for the Capitol Police who were present for security, it would have highly likely been a complete massacre. Rep. Steve Scalise was hit in the leg with a bullet, but is expected to recover.
After that nasty incident, a liberal writer took it upon himself to hit up Twitter and let everyone know that he thinks the shooter was simply acting in “self-defense.”
Malcolm Harris, who has a book contract with Little, Brown of New York, made tasteless tweets Wednesday morning following the shooting of at least four people in Alexandria, Virginia, including Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.).
Harris suggested the shooting of conservative Republicans could be justified.
“If the shooter has a serious health condition then is taking potshots at the GOP house leadership considered self defense?” He tweeted.

Harris’ biography suggested at one point he writes for the liberal news site Vox. He doesn’t.
But he does have a book contract with Little, Brown of New York. The book is titled, “Kids These Days: Human Capital and the Making of Millennial.” Little, Brown did not immediately return a message from LifeZette.
His author biography on Amazon lists him as a “freelance writer and an editor at The New Inquiry.” His book is scheduled to hit shelves in November.
His work has also appeared in the Village Voice and The New York Times Magazine. Harris has contributed to The Washington Post and the New Republic as well. He lives in Philadelphia.
He also tweeted: “Hearing ‘David Duke without the baggage’ Steve Scalise is stable, but a lot of Americans dies from hospital errors so keep crossing your fing [sic].”
However, he deleted that one later.
