Dem Consultant Creates #Hunt Republican Congressmen In Response To Shooting

Follow on FacebookFollow on Twitter

James Devine, a Democratic operative from New Jersey ,created a #HuntRepublicanCongressmen hashtag Thursday, one day after a gunman shot at Republican congressmen in Virginia and wounded Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise.

The New Jersey Democrat also went after injured Scalise, who is currently in critical condition.

Devine doubled down when he was called out for his post.

The New Jersey Democratic consultant told the hashtag “HuntRepublicanCongressmen” “speaks for itself.”

Devine went on to say, “Yesterday’s events are the result of escalating rhetoric and vitriol that has been evident in our political system culminating with the election of our president and the chickens came home to roost, you know?”

Devine later added, “I think some people will be shocked and offended,” he said, “and other people might be woken up to the fact that this is nothing that wasn’t invited by things like Sarah Palin’s crosshairs on Gabby Giffords before she was shot.”

According to his website, Devine has worked since 1980 as “a principal counselor, expert tactician or campaign manager to federal candidates, state legislators, county executives and mayors, among others.” He also served as the Democratic State Committee Political Director in 1992-93 and claims to have created the campaign plan that helped Bill Clinton “become the first Democratic presidential candidate to win New Jersey since 1964.”

    This is sedition n insurrection and not a first case instance either. Arrest him and let him lawyer up. SS should perfect the arrest in shackles then perp walk him into fed lockup. NJ … a BK state on brains as well as pensions.

    Wishy washy laws break america. Either Trump et al arrest this person or he proves that America has no laws anymore–that anyone can commit sedition and do domestic terrorism that the other side says ‘is speech’. This reveals to us that the constitution is undermined since the 4th amendment (equal protection under the law) is not being abided; and that undermining the office of the president is somehow not illegal by sedition.

    I am not a republican btw. I’m a sanders guy. I am going to bring down the sun and burn the earth if Hillary isn’t put in jail for her vast criminal enterprise and monkeywrenching of our society. That’s my jam. I don’t think it’s right for ANYONE to threaten anyone with slaying; and I don’t think social justice is more important than criminal justice; nor do I think ends justify the means–that’s the diff between me and an aristocrat with too much easy money and free time to play chess with the planet

    Either it’s the case Trump has no power if he doesn’t respond to this; or it’s the case that this DEM consultant is an agent provocateur working surreptitiously for team antideepstate / countercoup. And this means that 6 months in, Trump has finally figured out how to play the game and is learning spycraft 101, which is better than nothing but not ideal. We are ALL very tired of this psychological, asymmetric, nonlinear warfare happening in open view because it affects us in our lives–we the lumpen public are the collateral damage here and it’s done as a distraction to other things that swamp is doing around the world in this perennial warfare game being played by coup/countercoup , gang/countergang operations
