An Illinois State Senator apologized this week after pictures emerged on social media depicting the execution of President Trump at a fundraising event; saying he doesn’t “condone violence” towards the Commander-in-Chief “or anyone else.”
“I don’t condone violence toward the President or anyone else,” said State Sen. Martin Sandoval. “I apologize that something like this happened at my event.”
Every Democrat should be asked if they support or disavow this. https://t.co/7nRXtzIXqz

“As our nation grapples with the epidemic of gun violence, purposely pointing a fake gun at anyone is insensitive and wrong,” said Governor JB Pritzker. “I condemn actions like the ones displayed in the pictures because they lack the civility our politics demands.”
This is the state of Democrats today.

“The apology from Sen. Sandoval for the detestable pictures from his event depicting an assassination of President Trump is too little, too late,” said Illinois Republican Party chairman Tim Schneider.
“Dangerous imagery like this will be condemned and seen as inappropriate by people of sound mind; however, a mentally unstable individual who wants to harm President Trump might find them as an inspiration,” Schneider added. “It’s inexcusable for an elected official to allow the promotion of violence in any way. If the individual pictured is a staffer or volunteer, they should be terminated immediately.”

TOO FAR: AOC Says Americans in ‘Denial’ Over ‘Concentration Camp System’ Along Southern Border
Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her vicious rhetoric regarding the American immigration system Friday; saying most Americans are in “denial” over the “concentration camp system” along the US-Mexico border.
“To the folks outraged at the academics + experts naming our concentration camp system what it is, what else do you call camps where parents die as their children watch? Discomfort at the truth should spur us to change it. Denial prioritizes our comfort over people’s lives,” posted AOC on social media.

Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her vitriolic rhetoric regarding the Middle East peace process in a recent interview; saying she absolutely agrees with the host’s criticism of the “criminal” Israeli government and other “White Supremacist Jews.”

“There’s a lot of young Jewish people that I know that are absolutely against the occupation and I wanted you, because often on this program, we have the freedom to address the fact that something that you know people, it’s an oxymoron, how do you have white supremacist Jews? How do you have people like Stephen Miller? How do you have these individuals who are legit aligning with racism and white supremacy, but they’re Jewish and it’s something that most people can’t wrap their brains around. But it’s a real thing and what’s going on with Israel and Palestine, while it’s very deep, it is very, very criminal. It is very, very unjust,” said ‘EBRO in the morning.’
“Absolutely, and I think to where we’re at as a country when it comes to Israel-Palestine is very much a generational thing. I think that when we start looking at it through that lens, a lot of this stuff starts to make sense. It’s like what you’re talking about, young Jews in Israel are sick of this,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
President Trump called-out ‘The Squad’ on social media earlier this month; blasting the four freshman Congresswomen as “racist troublemakers” and “not very smart.”
“The ‘Squad’ is a very Racist group of troublemakers who are young, inexperienced, and not very smart. They are pulling the once great Democrat Party far left, and were against humanitarian aid at the Border…And are now against ICE and Homeland Security. So bad for our Country!” posted the President on Twitter.
TOO FAR: Bipartisan Backlash GROWS After Ilhan Omar Posts MORE Anti-Semitic Tweets
Rep. Ilhan Omar sparked a growing backlash from Democrats and Republicans across the United States Monday; facing fierce criticism after posting another series of anti-Semitic and conspiratorial tweets on social media over the weekend.
“Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., sparked backlash Sunday evening from members of both parties — including former first daughter Chelsea Clinton — after she accused a prominent lobbying group of paying members of Congress to support Israel,” writes Fox News.
“It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” tweeted Omar; suggesting America’s support for Jerusalem was tied to Israeli lobbying groups.
“House Democrat leaders should condemn this anti-Semitism and immediately remove @IlhanMN from the House Foreign Affairs Committee,” fired back Liz Cheney.
“We should expect all elected officials, regardless of party, and all public figures to not traffic in anti-Semitism,” added Chelsea Clinton.
