These vicious threats have to stop. This cannot be the new normalâ€”there is absolutely no place for violence in our political discourse. Democratic leaders need to denounce this behavior. https://t.co/SRjDwdGval

Strong statement from a Congressman who knows first-hand how violent deranged Democrats can be.
This is outrageous.
Instead of inciting violence against conservatives, Democrats in Congress should be condemning it. https://t.co/inp5pfLwGj
