Good to see that little more than a month after a mass assassination attempt on Republicans, Democrats are continuing the kind of rhetoric that serves as a dog whistle to violent left-wing extremists.
Earlier this week, Sen. Chuck Schumer ratcheted up the rhetoric claiming the repeal of Obamacare would “hurt millions.”
You know, the ol’ message that Republicans want people to die?
Now, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) is chastising President Trump as being a “major criminal” who must be “eliminated.”
It’s a near certainty that such thoughts were going through the mind of the Alexandria shooter, James Hodgkinson.
Via Fox News Insider:
In an indignant sermon before a Chicago church, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) blasted President Trump as “a major criminal” who wants to destroy families and pollute the environment.
Gutierrez spoke of how Trump promised to deport illegal alien “criminals” and others who have entered the country illegally.
“The major criminal that exists in the United States of America is called Donald Trump [and] he lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Av at the White House,” Gutierrez stormed.

That’s when he raised the stakes, saying that when Democrats regain control they are going to “eliminate” President Trump.
Gutierrez added that Trump needed to be brought to his knees.
“Gandhi took on … the greatest British empire non-violently with love in his heart … and he brought them down to their knees,” he lamented. “We can do the same thing to Donald Trump in the United States of America if we’re ready to do it.”
The congressman set about listing examples of what makes Trump a criminal who needs to be ‘brought down to his knees.’
Repealing and replacing Obamacare, eliminating strict environmental regulations that handcuff U.S. businesses, enforcing immigration laws, and stopping terrorists from entering the country. That’s what makes him a criminal in Gutierrez’s mind.
Oddly enough, Gutierrez was arrested in early March when he refused to leave a meeting of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) because they weren’t giving him enough information to help protect illegal immigrants.

Being arrested for defending illegal immigrants … That makes you the real criminal, doesn’t it Mr. Gutierrez?
I wonder what his reaction would be if President Trump called for him to be “eliminated.”
