What do you get when you combine liberalism’s love of violence and its inability to apply personal responsibility?

Keith Ellison.

The Democratic National Committee Deputy Chairman and Minnesota Congressman appeared on MSNBC on Monday, where he blamed President Trump for the mass assassination attempt on a Republican congressman and a politically-inspired double- murder carried out by a Bernie Sanders’ supporter.

I believe the rhetoric of the president is fueling some of the ugliest, most pernicious elements in our society. He is green-lighting ugly and hate and some of these folks are getting aggressive and we know about what happened in Portland a few weeks ago,” said Ellison, referring to the double-murder on a Portland commuter train committed by a self-identified Sanders’ supporter who opposed Trump.

What I think is when the president says ‘punch them in the face,’ ‘carry them out in a stretcher,’ he creates a culture of incivility which sort of lets anybody who’s loosely hinged to reality just sort of go off the rails.” claimed Ellison.

“(T)he head of state ought to counsel civility, ought to tell people that we’re not going to allow problems to be solved with guns and with street violence, and that’s what the president should be doing.” said Ellison.

If that’s the case, then here are six times in which the Barack Obama White House also engaged in similar “violent” rhetoric.

1. “I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face.”

– During a Sept. 18, 2008 campaign event in Nevada.  An Obama supporter would later attempt to assassinate Donald Trump by grabbing a police officer’s gun during a Trump campaign event, also in Nevada.

2. “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry. I’m angry.”

– March 30, 2009, referring to how bank executives are paid.

3. “I don’t want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess.”

– August 8, 2009, targeting Republicans who pointed out the failure of his “stimulus” program.

4. “I don’t sit around talking to experts because this is a college seminar. We talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers, so I know whose ass to kick.”

– June 7, 2009, describing his plan to deal with the BP oil spill.

5. “If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard.”

– An official August 6, 2009 message from the White House to congressional Democrats, after several were yelled at during town hall meetings by constituents angry over Obamacare.  Now, Democrats are showing up at town hall meetings to grab Republican congressmen by the neck, or run them off the road with their cars.

6.“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”

– At a June 13, 2008 campaign fundraiser in Philadelphia. One of his supporters would go on to shoot a Republican congressman over Obamacare repeal.

If Keith Ellison is looking for a president who created a “culture of incivility which sort of lets anybody who’s loosely hinged to reality just sort of go off the rails,” perhaps he should take a look through his cell phone’s contacts and call up the guy whose supporters are throwing firebombs at police officers and shooting members of Congress.
