American Democrats are increasingly making their murderous intentions clear. Driven by their hatred of President Donald Trump, conservatives, Christians, and white people in general (even when the Demoncrat is white himself), they are intent on provoking a new Civil War.

RAHWAY — A longtime Democratic operative from Union County has responded to the Wednesday shooting of a congressman by calling for a “hunt” of Republicans.
James Devine posted several messages on Facebook and Twitter following the Alexandra, Virginia, shooting of U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise and several others by a gunman with a history of violence and of making online rantings against Republican officials and their policies.
“We are in a war with selfish, foolish & narcissistic rich people. Why is it a shock when things turn violent?” Devine posted on social media, ending the message with the hashtag: #HuntRepublicanCongressmen
Devine used the hashtag #HuntRepublicans in another message about Scalise speaking at a event hosted by a group founded by racist David Duke.
“I have little sympathy for the Republican Congressman who got shot today because he viciously opposed President Obama’s effort to reduce gun violence and instead, he accepted more gun lobby money than all but 15 other members of the House of Representatives,” he said on Facebook.
The comments drew criticism from others who follow Devine on Facebook and Twitter.
But Devine told New Jersey 101.5 that he is not backing down, although he insists his comments were meant to shock but not advocate violence.
“It is insensitive and I don’t care. You want me to be politically correct? I don’t have time for that anymore,” he said.
Devine said his tweets were inspired by 2016 tweet by Tea Party-backed U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who repeated a quotation about the 2nd Amendment being about “shoot[ing] at the government when it becomes tyrannical!”
Devine said Republican policies to take away people’s healthcare, enact voter ID laws, and oppose gun regulations are his idea of “tyrannical government.”
“I’m not going to shy away from harsh rhetoric. We have a president elected largely by people who were tired of politicians who shied away from harsh rhetoric. I don’t think it’s appropriate; I’d much rather have a rational and reasonable debate. But we can’t have that.”
“I’m not apologizing if it offended snowflake Republicans,” he added.
But other local Democrats did not agree with Devine’s attention-seeking tactics.
Union County Democratic Chairman Jerry Green on Thursday condemned the comments after a reporter read them to him.
“In this day and age, we have to be very careful in what we say or how we say it,” Green said. “I do not support the hunting of any people — Democrat or Republican.”
“I’ve had Republican friends that I have developed over the 25-plus years in Trenton. I consider them to be good human beings,” said Green, who is an assemblyman from Plainfield.
