Reminding Schumer of His ‘Violent Rhetoric’

    Mollie Hemingway of the Federalist remembers a speech that the U.S. Senate's Democratic leader might want to forget.

  • When Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., spoke against the constitutionality of the Democrats' impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, he reminded his colleagues that Democrat elected officials had recently told their followers to attack Republicans. If Trump was to be impeached for asking followers to "peacefully and patriotically" make their voices heard by members of Congress on Jan. 6, what to do with Democrats' more incendiary rhetoric and actions, he wondered.
  • Sen. Kamala Harris solicited funds to bail out the rioters who destroyed Minneapolis during 2020's "Summer of Rage." Rep. Maxine Waters called on Democrats to seek out Republicans in public places and "create a crowd" and "push back" on them to let them know "they're not welcome anymore, anywhere."
  • The Bernie Sanders supporter who nearly killed House Republican Whip Steve Scalise at a baseball field in Virginia said he was motivated to kill for "health care" after Sanders and other Democrats had said the Republican health care plan was to kill many Americans. ...
  • ... One example Paul left out of his excellent speech is even more relevant to next week's impeachment. Less than one year ago, Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York led a mob on the steps of the Supreme Court while a case was being heard and tried to thwart the natural deliberation of justices by violently threatening two of them to rule in favor of his and other Democrats' preferred outcome.
  • "I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won't know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions," Schumer threatened the two most recently confirmed justices, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.
  • The threat was so alarming that even leftist activists such as Laurence Tribe condemned it. Schumer received a rare, same-day rebuke from Chief Justice John Roberts. ...

There are few analysts, if any stripe, as smarter, or smarter than Mollie Hemmingway.

She is very well spoken and keen to wisdom without hubris.
