On Saturday, MSNBC propagandist Joy Reid angered a numbered of people when she suggested that Rep. Steve Scalise deserved to be shot because of his voting record.
“Rep. #Scalise was shot by a white man with a violent background, and saved by a black lesbian police officer, and yet…” she wrote, in a tweet with a graphic of Scalise’s record.

The implication is clear. According to Reid, Scalise apparently deserved to get shot because of his conservative voting record.
Her message didn’t sit too well with many:
No, please don't say things like this. What this story shows is the strength of people to go beyond hate, of this amazing woman.

Ideas and beliefs that don’t align with yours aren’t justification for attempted execution. You’re a subhuman garbage person.

Always about identity politics…. the left thrives on it. 😡
The fact is, MSM R responsible 4 radicalizing him via lies #AMJoy

And right-leaning police, firefighters and military save radical anti-police, anti-military left-wingers every single day. Your point?

One person asked:
Which bills did the black lesbian support? Because she also got shot by the progressive. https://t.co/XGLujyY9cB

But does it really matter? Scalise is a Republican, and that, according to the alt-left media propagandists, is all that matters.
He was shot by an MSNBC fan and saved by a woman who the Scalises consider family. This is despicable. https://t.co/prYt86VS1q

It’s more than despicable. This, sadly, is the modern left, which is increasingly becoming more and more like Middle Eastern terrorists.
One person noted:
MSNBC drives a man to kill and then defends the fact he did it….. https://t.co/f5wDXe9lLs

That’s pretty much the case.
When Joy purposefully ignores the fact a liberal terrorist was incited to attempt an assassination by liberal rhetoric. 👍 #FoolingNoOne

Indeed. The reality is that unhinged leftists are using violence to treasonously attempt to overthrow a democratically elected govt…

And they’re being motivated to do so by propagandists in the Democrat-media complex like Reid.
Reid isn’t the only one to use this despicable talking point. As Twitchy noted, Star Trek actor George Takei, a legend in his own alleged “mind,” adopted a similar take, claiming the shooting was some kind of justice brought by the universe, or something…
The universe doesn't joke around. The officer who saved bigoted, homophobic Rep. Steve Scalise during baseball practice was a black lesbian.
— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) June 17, 2017
The presence of two DC Capitol Police officers who were assigned to guard House Majority Whip Steve Scalise at a congressional baseball practice undoubtedly saved many lives that day, but it’s never too soon for some to try and score a political point after something so awful…
Of course, what neither Takei nor Reid understood is this one point:
She was also shot by Bernie volunteer, stupid universe. https://t.co/RqFstieLlW
— Cuffy (@CuffyMeh) June 17, 2017
Hmmm… One would think these liberals would consider that. Oh, wait…
Hi @GeorgeTakei You're actually closer to what the shooter believes than what Officer Griner believes. Live with that.

Bingo. The same could be said of Reid…
