Does DNC boss Debbie Wasserman Schultz support the idea of “taking out” Tea Party “sons of bitches?”
When asked repeatedly about violent remarks made by Teamsters’ President Jimmy Hoffa, Jr., on Fox and Friends Tuesday morning, Wasserman Schultz tried to turn the tables on Fox News instead of answering the question.
“Fox and Friends” host Gretchen Carlson repeatedly pressed Wasserman Schultz for a comment, with the DNC chair attempting to stay on message by stating only that “the American people want us to focus on working together” to create jobs.
After Carlson prompted several times for a specific response to Hoffa’s shot at the tea party, Wasserman Schultz asked the host “are you kidding me?”
“Really Gretchen? How many times have you called out coarse language at tea party rallies? Almost never,” Wasserman Schultz said, without citing any alleged instances of “coarse language” at Tea Party rallies.
“But you know what, everybody here’s got a vote. If we go back, and we keep the eye on the prize, let’s take these son-of-a-bitches out and give America back to America where we belong,” Hoffa said Monday in Detroit.
Hoffa’s remarks created a firestorm of controversy among Tea Party activists, who demanded Hoffa’s resignation. The Rockford Tea Party of Rockford, Illinois, said Hoffa should be held personally responsible if any harm befalls a Tea Party activist as a result of Hoffa’s call for violence:
Hoffa’s call to violent action was and is incendiary and dangerous. If even one member of the Tea Party is harmed by anyone after Hoffa’s call to violence, then Hoffa should be held accountable by the Justice System and Charged appropriately.
ABC News reported Monday that the White House also had no comment regarding Hoffa’s remarks.
Despite President Obama’s repeated claims to change the tone in Washington, the White House had no comment this afternoon after Teamsters Union leader James Hoffa, speaking at an event before President Obama, said of Tea Party activists that, come November, Democrats should “take these sons of bitches out.”
Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit reminded readers that Wasserman Schultz once called for “civility” after the January shooting in Tucson that left Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords severely wounded:
In a statement Monday, Wasserman Schultz says the shooting has reminded her that “words have the power to hurt and to heal.” She says the country needs “a new tone of civility in our public discourse.”
But as Hoft points out, “…that was after democrats were trying to blame the shooting of Gabby Giffords by a left-wing Bush-hating lunatic on Republicans and the tea party.”
Since then, Wasserman Schultz has demonstrated Democratic “civility” by falsely accusing Republicans of wanting to kill people and waging a “war on women.”
