Steve Scalise (R-LA), the House minority whip, beat up Nancy Pelosi in an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham for portraying Republicans as “the enemy”.
He went on to claim that the wrong characterization was a means of attacking the second change.
The House spokeswoman targeted Republicans earlier this week, claiming that fears under her caucus for their safety in the presence of GOP lawmakers had grown so much that they needed to raise funds for security details.
“I believe, and I’ve been saying this all along, that when the enemy is in the House of Representatives, we will likely need an addition to add security to Members,” she said.
The simple-minded Democrats have mimicked their smear campaign and culminated with MP Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who literally accused Senator Ted Cruz of “nearly murdering me.”
House spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi said lawmakers would likely need more security resources to protect them not only from outside threats, but possibly from their own counterparts, whom she referred to as the “enemy within”. twitter.com/jRYqHMekdz

Worse still, he claimed Pelosi was laying the groundwork for the evisceration of the Second Amendment.
“Another thing they’re trying to do, Laura, is to take our second amendment rights away,” said Scalise. “Make no mistake about it – they will come up with a bill sometime this year to take away our rights under the second amendment.”
He continued, “They are building this predicate,” Oh my god, everyone should be better afraid of someone with a gun, “and that will be their attempt to take the guns away then.”

Scalise, who was seriously injured in a politically motivated mass murder attempt by a Bernie Sanders supporter in 2017, also criticized Democrats for their acidic words.
“You know, she has to stop because we’ve seen where it goes when they try to demonize their opponents,” he said.
Scalise was shot dead along with five others in an “act of terrorism … fueled by anger against Republican lawmakers” when “leftist activist” James Hodgkinson opened fire during congressional baseball practice.
So yes, he knows exactly where the demonization of your opponents as enemies, murderers and traitors will lead.

Scalise said the left’s 2017 shooting only reinforced its resolve to protect the second amendment.

In her interview, Ingraham agreed that Pelosi wants to take away the rights of the second amendment.
They “set the stage to run against the guns of law-abiding citizens,” she said.
