California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff has a long history of attacking President Donald Trump, but he managed to hit a new low this week after saying the worst thing imaginable about the deadly shootings last weekend.
After the two shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas, over the weekend -- Schiff joined his fellow Democrats in using the tragedies to push political talking points.
But Schiff took it one step further and said “white supremacist violence” is a bigger threat to Americans than foreign terrorist groups.
“We just had a hearing in the Intelligence Committee about this, because the threat domestically from white supremacist violence now I think is eclipsing the threat from the doctrinations of ISIS and al-Qaida and the like in terms of domestic crimes,” Schiff said.
Schiff then tried connecting Trump to the recent violence by claiming that the president's rhetoric on immigration is somehow linked to the two shootings.
“We can speak out against this hate. We can condemn the president when he engages in it,” Schiff said.
Hours before Schiff's sickening diatribe, Trump condemned white supremacy and all forms of racism.
“In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy. These sinister ideologies must be defeated,” the president said. “Hate has no place in America.”
Schiff obviously didn't care and marched ahead with his sickening comments against POTUS.
“To hear the president today talk about we all need to be united — well, he’s the biggest part of this problem in terms of using this incendiary language, this dehumanizing language about people coming to this country being invaders,” Schiff said.
Many will agree Schiff’s claim that “white supremacist violence” is now more dangerous than terrorism is flat-out incorrect.
As noted by The Western Journal, here are just a few examples of radical Islamic terrorism that took place in America:
The Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that al-Qaida carried out killed 2,977 people. Other more recent attacks in the United States were also linked to followers of radical Islam.
In 2013, the Tsarnaev brothers used bombs to kill three people and injure 183 at the Boston Marathon.
Two years later, militant Islamic followers killed 14 people during the San Bernardino terrorist attack.
The 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida, left 49 people dead after a mass shooter who admitted to being an Islamic fanatic opened fire in the crowded venue.
Then in 2017, an Islamic radical used a pick-up truck to kill eight and wound 12 in Manhattan.
Schiff's comments are very disturbing, but won't surprise many.
