A Nebraska Democratic Party official is now in hot water. An audio recording was posted on YouTube Thursday with Phil Montag, a technology chairman, voicing how glad he was that House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., got shot last week at a GOP baseball practice. Nebraska Democratic Party Chairwoman Jane Kleeb confirmed to FOX 42 News Thursday it was really his voice.
“His whole job is to get people, convince Republicans to (expletive) kick people off (expletive) health care. I’m glad he got shot,” said Montag in the audio recording.
Montag is now looking for a new job; Kleeb let him go after the recording became public.
“I wish he was (expletive) dead,” said Montag in the recording.
Also, at the time he was recorded, he was meeting with another Nebraska Democrat Party official who said she thought the Scalise shooting was “funny.”
Seriously, Nebraska Democrats, WTF is wrong with you? Is it the simple self-loathing that comes from belonging to a party that thinks you’re dumb, flyover hicks barely a notch above Trump’s “deplorables?”
I’m glad he got fired… for saying out loud what far too many Democrats were thinking. He may have been a relatively minor official in state Democrats don’t give two sh-ts about unless there’s a senate seat open, but his “kick people off health care” rhetoric echoes the rhetoric of the Democrat Leadership.
On that note, have Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Hillary Clinton, or Barack Obama… any of the Democrat leadership… told their people to tone down the violent rhetoric since the shooting?
Update: Mr. Montag says his quotes were taken out of context. Now, I ask you, in what context would “I’m glad he got shot” and “I wish he was (sic) (expletive) dead” benign comments?
