Republican Congressman Steve Scalise was nearly murdered by a crazed Bernie Sanders-supporting radical not long ago.
He knows a thing or two about fighting for his life.
During a recent interview, the Louisiana Republican discussed abortion.
He went on to highlight how Democrats applaud the “murder” of a “baby born alive.”
Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) described Democrats’ support for lawful and limitless access to abortion as an endorsement of the “murder” of babies in a Monday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.
Scalise: “This is something that I think Americans across the board, no matter where you stand on the issue of abortion, people recognize that if a baby is born alive, if a baby literally survives an abortion [and] is born alive, they can still in many states kill the baby.“
Scalise recalled Democrats’ applause in the New York State Legislature following passage of the Empire State’s latest abortion legislation. He also noted Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D-NY) support for the new law.
Scalise: “You heard this. The governor in New York was bragging, they were applauding when he signed this disgraceful law. It’s barbaric, but it’s murder, where literally if the baby is born alive they can still murder the baby, and in New York it’s legal.“
Scalise: “And of course in Virginia you saw the governor, he was talking about how you can do it. Talk about a barbaric conversation, he was on the radio show talking about how you can, while the baby is born and the parents can go and have a conversation about how they can then go and then kill the baby.“
Scalise: “I was shocked, and I literally had to go back to my staff and say, ‘Wait, explain to me how it’s legal to kill a baby, a person who’s born legally.’ And yet it is in probably 24 states. Even people who are pro-choice, most of them believe that the baby — if it’s born alive — should be protected under law.“
Scalise: “It’s not only barbaric, it’s murder. If the baby is born alive, it’s murder and it should be murder. We’re going to vote to give it that protection. I talked to President Trump about this over the weekend. The president is strongly supportive of what we’re trying to do to protect life.“
Back in October 2018, CNN’s Don Lemon said he doesn’t “see Democrats killing people,” ignoring the many cases of violence committed at the hands of lefties.
From Daily Wire:
CNN host Don Lemon made sure to impose his overtly partisan view of the horrific mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue and the series of package bombs sent by a lunatic in Florida during a panel discussion on CNN Monday night. From Lemon’s perspective, the group to blame for the violence is, of course, Republicans and the right-wing media because, he suggested, Democrats don’t commit such violence. Actually, he didn’t just suggest it, he outright said it before being called out on his own show.
In response to conservative commentator Mike Shields pointing out that Republican Rep. Steve Scalise was grievously wounded by a left-wing mass shooter, who repeatedly screamed “This is for health care!” as he opened fire on a Republican congressional baseball practice, Lemon blasted Shields for what he said was an unfair comparison.
Scalise had one tweet that should have him thinking things over.
