In reading Newt Gingrich’s new book, “Understanding Trump,” last night before bed, I came across a reference to Congressman Steve Scalise, shot by a radicalized liberal in Virginia yesterday, related to Democrat attacks accusing Scalise of being a racist in 2015.
I didn’t remember the episode, so I Googled it and found this report by Byron York in the Washington Examiner…
“Democrats have tried to rev up the outrage machine over news that Rep. Steve Scalise, the number-three ranking House Republican, may or may not have given a speech to a white supremacist group in Louisiana 12 years ago.
“Not only has the Democratic Party attacked Scalise himself, it has also gone after the House GOP leadership and, now, the 2016 Republican presidential field.”
Of course, now that Scalise has been shot Democrats are falling all over themselves – especially socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders who the shooter supported in the presidential election last year - condemning the attack and praising the Louisiana Republican.
But it is undeniable that the “hate speech” – especially the unending false accusations of racism against Republicans for years now – has contributed to the environment leading this nutjob to thinking it was justifiable to kill Republicans (see "Famous Last Words" at the bottom for latest example).
It’s not conservatives resorting to violence in street demonstrations, town halls, rallies and campus protests. It’s radicalized liberals who are spoon-fed anti-GOP/anti-Trump hate speech on a daily basis by not only Democrat “leaders,” but their “amen corner” in the mainstream media, especially CNN.
It’s time to put the blame for this “violent resistance” movement squarely where it belongs.

NEVADA NEWS & VIEWS
Republicans in southern Nevada enjoyed a pretty good day Tuesday in municipal elections.
Conservative Republican Michele Fiore beat Democrat legacy candidate Kelli Ross for a seat on the Las Vegas City Council. Incumbent Republican Henderson City Councilman John Marz retained his seat. Republican challenger Scott Black beat Democrat incumbent North Las Vegas City Councilwoman Anita Wood. And Republican judicial candidate Cara Campbell defeated incumbent Democrat Judge Heidi Almase.
In fact, the only GOP municipal candidate to lose to a Democrat was incumbent Las Vegas City Councilman Bob Beers. But Beers, by his own actions over the Badlands golf course issue and support for that billion dollarNO BID trash contract for Republic Services, pretty much beat himself.
All in all, a pretty good showing for the GOP in local races where the party has not historically been known for much strength. Trump Effect?
