After groups of invaders tried to break through border patrol areas, democrat Brian Schatz complained about the use of ‘chemical weapons’ before having to backtrack and remove the tweet.
The somewhat thought-challenged liberal was then forced to backtrack his inflammatory rhetoric.
The migrant criminals, not content to wait for legal means of entry, attempted to squeeze through gaps in wire, climb over fences and peel back metal sheeting.
Schatz initially tweeted, “Tear gas across the border against unarmed families is a new low.”
Approximately 45 minutes later, Schatz kept on trying to stir up hate for the people defending the right of the United States to protect the border, writing, “Who gave the order? Did it implement or contravene policy?”
He then tweeted “WHO GAVE THE ORDER?” in all caps.
Schatz added, “Why tear gas? Is this consistent with the Conventions on Chemical Weapons?”
However, the tweet was posted for just a few minutes before it was deleted.
Schatz apparently replaced it with this message, “Anyone uncomfortable with spraying tear gas on children is welcome to join the coalition of the moral and the sane. We can argue about other stuff when we’ve got our country back.”
In an exchange with opinion writer Stephen Miller, Schatz admitted that “I went ahead and deleted the one about chemical weapons because I just don’t know enough about what happened.”
He then asked Miller, “Does this not strike you as excessive?”
Perhaps someone can answer that for the newly elected democrat, many people say “NO!”
It’s not excessive to defend national sovereignty from a group of military age invaders. It’s not excessive to use non-lethal force against a group of attacking trespassers.
It is, however, excessive, to scream and rant about the fact that the border patrol is doing exactly what they’re supposed to be doing.
It is excessive to use exaggerated rhetoric to try to instigate violence from some of the more unhinged among liberal supporters.
