Another Democrat Hater

A Democrat hater in Nebraska was caught on audio wishing death on House Whip Steve Scalise.

Not every Democrat hater takes a gun and uses it like James Hodgkinson did. Some merely wish that he had succeeded. That was the case in Nebraska where a Democrat official expressed the wish that Congressman Steve Scalise had died from the wounds that Hodgkinson had inflicted. The only positive outcome from this scandal is that this interesting man was fired from the Nebraska DNC.

The Washington Times reports, “Nebraska Dem official ousted for saying he’s wished Rep. Scalise dead.

Phil Montag, a volunteer co-chairman of the party’s technology committee, unloaded a series of expletives in describing his disdain for Rep. Scalise, who is still recovering from an attempted assassination of Republican members of Congress at a June 14 baseball practice.

“I’m glad he got shot,” he added. “I wish he was f–ing dead.”

He said these deranged things to the Democrat Black Caucus chairwoman, Chelsey Gentry-Tipton, who also said that she found it difficult to pity Scalise.
