The left is completely unhinged. They aren’t able to win elections so they’re using violence to achieve their ends.
Before the shooting of Steve Scalise last week, Rep. Ann Wagner had already received multiple sick threats to herself and her family.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports:
Before Scalise shooting, Wagner had reported five death threats to Capitol Police
Weeks before her close friend, Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, was shot on a high school baseball field Wednesday morning, Rep. Ann Wagner reported to Capitol Police five death threats made against her this spring, Wagner says.
It’s part of what Wagner, R-Ballwin, called the “hate and vitriol” that has infected public life. She said she decided to go public this week after seeing a 23-year-old aide in her district office sobbing after an abusive phone call, and after watching children in her Ballwin neighborhood scrub away chalk outlines of dead bodies that had been drawn on the driveway of her home.
The children replaced them, she said, with happy faces.
Wagner laid out the threats she said that she and her staff experienced over several weeks this spring in a private House of Representatives caucus of Republicans and Democrats on Wednesday, hours after Scalise and four others had been wounded in a hailstorm of bullets from a man from Belleville…

How does the left think this is going to end?
