Minnesota Republican encourages gun owners to curb stomp Democrats in unhinged rally speech

Published

on

Republican Minnesota State Rep. Cal Bahr has found himself in hot water after he told a group of gun owners that Democrats deserve to be curb stomped for proposing new gun safety measures.

The Twin Cities Pioneer Press reports that Bahr made his incendiary remarks at the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus rally on Saturday, where he was whipping up opposition to two different gun control proposals that are coming up for debate at the Minnesota state government.

“There’s a lot of us in this room that have had enough, and it’s time to start riding herd on the rest of these people that want to take your rights away from you,” Bahr said at the rally. “They will not go quietly into the good night. They need to be kicked to the curb and stomped on and run over a few times.”

Bahr’s attacks on gun control supporters come as the state legislature mulls taking up bills to enact universal gun background checks and to enact a “red flag” law that will give police the rights to confiscate firearms from people who have been deemed dangerous.

Democratic Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz quickly condemned Bahr for spouting violent rhetoric in anticipation of the debate on gun safety.

“Encouraging violence endangers our communities and undermines our democracy, particularly when the statement is made by an elected official,” Walz said. “While heated debates are a healthy part of the political process, this type of language is unacceptable and demands condemnation from people of all political parties.”

Watch video below. Bahr’s comments are around the 1:02:00 mark.

Trump busted for acting like the Saudi’s ‘press secretary’ after Florida naval yard shooting

Published

on

Conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot blasted President Donald Trump for essentially becoming a "press secretary" for the Saudi Arabian government in wake of the Pensacola, Florida mass shooting.

In his column Sunday, Boot noted that the typical mass shooting sentiments like "thoughts and prayers" were absent Friday when Trump discovered that the shooting was done by a Muslim.

"It turns out that Trump actually has a triple standard, because he treats attacks by Saudis differently than those from other Muslim nations," Boot observed. "On Friday, a Saudi air force officer studying at the Naval Air Station Pensacola shot dead three Americans and wounded eight others. Instead of expressing outrage or vowing vengeance, or even waiting for all the facts to come in, Trump sounded as if he were auditioning for the job of press secretary at the Saudi Embassy."

McConnell blocked by his own party from calling impeachment witnesses Trump wants for Senate trial: report

Published

on

According to a report from the New York Times, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is finding his hands tied by members of his own party who are skeptical over the appropriateness of calling some of the witnesses Donald Trump  -- and a few of his House Republican enablers  -- want to appear.

As the Times notes, "While Democrats who control the House are focused on a swift impeachment vote by year’s end, the White House is almost entirely consumed by the trial that would follow in the Republican-controlled Senate, where Mr. Trump’s team believes he would have the chance to defend himself and where Democrats would almost certainly fall short of the two-thirds vote they would need to remove him from office."

Published

In a column for the Washington Post, conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin in publically shamed Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for his conversion from Cold War Russia critic to unabashed "Putin stooge" after his performance on "Meet the Press" on Sunday.

Speaking with NBC host Chuck Todd on Sunday, Cruz attempted to push what has been described as Kremlin propaganda, asserting that "there is evidence of Ukraine interference in our election because an op-ed was written criticizing Trump’s campaign rhetoric about Ukraine."
