    CBS Anchor Attempts to Tie Political Violence to Republicans – GOP Guest Sets Her Straight

    Published on

    Democrats began blaming Republicans for the vicious hammer attack Paul Pelosi received early on Friday morning from a disturbed individual in roughly the same amount of time.

    The attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco home resulted in her 82-year-old husband’s skull being fractured, and the left immediately and collectively started to run with the narrative that violent right-wing propaganda had motivated the attacker — identified by authorities as 42-year-old David DePape, who was reportedly a mentally ill nudist activist — to do it.

    Tom Emmer, a Minnesota congressman and the head of the National Republican Congressional Committee, was greeted by Margaret Brennan, host of CBS News’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday mornings.

    Emmer shared a small video of himself firing a firearm at a shooting range two days before the assault, with the caption, “Enjoyed exercising my Second Amendment rights with @KellyCooperAZ & General @JackBergman_MI1. … 13 days to make history. Let’s #FirePelosi.”

    To start, a visibly upset and combative Brennan questioned Emmer about whether he would “denounce any kind of attack on the Pelosi family,”, “just to be abundantly clear.”

    Emmer retorted “Absolutely. There should be no attacks, period. There should be no violence in our society. Again, whether it’s political or otherwise, there’s no place for it in a civilized society.”

    Brennan then cited a CBS poll, according to which many Republicans had doubts about the fairness of elections.

    “A big majority of Republicans support the idea of private citizens challenging election officials as they process and report vote counts on election night,” she claimed. “We’re seeing that on the screen now. Two-thirds of Republicans support the idea of private citizens patrolling around ballot drop boxes and polling places.”

    “This is just Republicans. We don’t see this with Democrats. We do not see this with independents. Would you urge private citizens not to patrol polling places?”

    “Well, you picked the words, Margaret,” Emmer said.  “I would say that it is Republicans, Democrats, independents, all American citizens are very acutely aware … about our election process. I think this is going to be a very good election because people are awake. They’re paying attention.”

    “They should volunteer as poll watchers. It’s a state-based system. Whatever your state requires and allows, you should definitely be involved. And I think it’s going to help the process.”

    She wanted “just to be abundantly clear” that “poll watching is different than voter intimidation, which is unlawful.”

    Emmer replied, “Nobody should be intimidated when they’re exercising their most precious right to vote.”

    After rephrasing the question several more times to make sure the congressman didn’t support voter intimidation, Brennan told him he was on a list of “307 Republicans running for office who have raised doubts about the integrity of the election.”

    “Do you regret sowing doubts yourself?” she said.

    As Emmer tried to answer the question, Brennan repeatedly interrupted him.

    “What you’re referring to,” he said, “I’ve never sowed doubts about the election. I have definitely raised questions –“

    She interjected, “You signed onto this Texas amicus brief –”

    “Absolutely, let’s talk about that –” CONTINUE READING…
