Among Democrats releasing statements denouncing “violence in Gaza” is Rep. Keith Ellison, who had a tweet containing a couple words that raised eyebrows:
Shocked and dismayed by the lethal force used by Israeli troops against mostly unarmed protestors demonstrating at Gaza’s border. My statement with @repmarkpocan, @RepJayapal, @RepHankJohnson and @RepRaulGrijalva. pic.twitter.com/Flq1LkUkkH

Given that these “protestors” are wielding grenades and Molotov cocktails, you’re making that “mostly” in “mostly unarmed” do a heckuva lot of work. https://t.co/Tzg2FMOnDA

“Mostly unarmed”? Ellison quickly glossed over the people not among the unarmed for some reason.

"Mostly" meaning that there were, in fact, armed terrorists attempting to kill the Israeli soldiers. https://t.co/DivobOIdmU
