Much like the majority of leftists, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) speaks really tough — knowing he’ll incite a crowd — before backtracking and saying that he didn’t mean what anyone with two functioning ears knew he meant with his initial comments.
In March of 2020, Schumer spoke at a pro-abortion rally in front on the Supreme Court where he made comments that, had any Republican or conservative said them, would’ve been made out to be both a direct threat and an incitement of a crowd to possible violence.
Here’s Schumer’s comments from that March 2020 rally:
I want to tell you [Justice Neil] Gorsuch! I want to tell you [Justice Brett] 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.
Chief Justice John Roberts scolded Schumer later in the day on March 4.
“Justices know that criticism comes with the territory, but threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangers,” Roberts said, according to the New York Post. “All Members of the Court will continue to do their jobs without fear or favor, from whatever quarter.”
On March 5, Schumer spoke on the Senate floor and walked back his inflammatory and unhinged comments.
“I’m from Brooklyn. We speak in strong language,” Schumer said. “I shouldn’t have used the words I did, but in no way was I making a threat.”
That’s complete BS, folks. That’s like saying that because I’m from Chicago, just because I shot someone doesn’t mean I intended to kill them.
For someone who has been a politician since 1975 — that’s 47 years for those playing the home game — he knows perfectly well how “the game” is played and also knows full well that every word he says unfortunately has weight.
Then again, Schumer is an unhinged, low-information leftist, so there’s that.
