Left-wing group of attack dogs calls for taking out Republicans

The FederalistA liberal group is raising money to put up a billboard to “take out” Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), who survived being shot while practicing at a baseball field in Alexandria last June.

On June 14, 2017, Scalise and several other Republican congressmen were practicing for the upcoming annual congressional baseball game at a field in Alexandria, Virginia, when a gunman opened fire on the members and shot Scalise in the hip. Before opening fire, the shooter asked for the baseball players’ party identification, and identified with far-left politicians and causes. For weeks after the shooting, Scalise’s recovery was uncertain.

Mad Dog PAC chairman Claude Taylor told The Ledger that his group was planning to “toss mortars” at the other side.

“People know that President Trump is a crook, and we’re going to do something about it,” Taylor said. “We are tossing mortars at the other side. We’re not offering policy prescriptions. We’re attack dogs; that’s what we’re here for.”

I'm not going to complain that this sort of rhetoric causes violence. The choice to resort to violence is a personal one, and the individual making it is responsible for their actions. But it certainly encourages people to make that choice, and we're seeing the results in antifa's black-masked thugs, the Black Lives Matter riots during Obama's term, and the attempted mass murder of the Republican Congress's baseball team at their practice, all with explicitly political motives.
