More disturbing to me are the volunteers in his campaign. One nearly killed Scalise and another wants to bring the gulags to America. Jurek.
Do you mean Republican Congressman Steve Scalise?

He might be a big name in the United States but where I am his name has so little resonance that the average Aussie, like yours truly, would undoubtedly ask "who is he?"

So I Googled up Scalise and this is what I got:

(Dated June 2017)
US Congressman Steve Scalise is in a critical condition after a gunman opened fire on Republican politicians during practice for a charity baseball game.

Mr Scalise, the House of Representatives Majority Whip, was among five people wounded when the man opened fire with an assault rifle and a pistol at a sports field in Alexandra, Virginia.

The shooter, identified as 66-year-old James Hodgkinson of Illinois, died in hospital from his wounds after a security detail returned fire at the scene.

Mr Scalise was shot in the hip and has undergone surgery. Two police officers were also among the injured.

Witness say between 50 and 100 shots were fired in the ambush.

https://thenewdaily.com.au/news/world/2 ... lise-shot/
.........on Republican politicians (plural).

Republican whip Steve Scalise was just one of a crowd targeted by a crazed gunman rather than someone who was specifically targeted for assassination. Another one of those mass shootings that are so depressingly commonplace in the USA:
This is a list of mass shootings in the United States that have occurred in 2020.[1][2] This article only includes shootings with at least four total victims, including the shooter(s). As of February 29, there has been 55 shootings that fit this criteria, resulting in 74 deaths and 199 injuries, for a total of 273 victims....

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_m ... es_in_2020
...and the year 2020 is still not even 3 months old.

Now, what about the gunman?

Anti-Trump shooter

The shooter has been described as “political” and fiercely anti-Trump who had been living out of his car since March.

Hodgkinson’s brother, told the New York Times that the shooter became upset by the election of President Trump and moved to the Washington DC area “out of the blue” to protest.

Hodgkinson’s Facebook page, still available early Thursday morning (AEST), is peppered with diatribes against President Trump and Republicans.

James T Hodgkinson moved to Washington after President Trump’s election to ‘protest’.
Hodgkinson also “liked” a political cartoon that suggested Mr Scalise should be fired.

On March 22, he posted “Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co”.

An acquaintance of Hodgkinson’s said the shooter campaigned for Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders during the 2016 presidential election.

Senator Sanders said he condemned the shooting “in the strongest possible terms.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_m ... es_in_2020
The article only state that the shooter "campaigned" for Sanders in 2016 and as such Hodgkinson would have been just one of thousands, possible tens of thousands, who did. It did not mean that Sanders had actually met Hodgkinson in person or even knew of his existence.

Yet the insinuation you seem to place on the incident is that an individual gunman, most likely suffering a mental health issue, who decided to take the law into his own hands (neither unknown nor -alas - even unusual in the United States) acted under orders from Bernie Sanders to conduct a targeted assassination of
the Republican House of Representatives Whip.

Cass, I humbly but earnestly suggest that you have wildly misread the situation.
The fact that it was not a targeted assassination attempt is irrelevant. The fact is that Comrade Bernie has people on this team, working for him, who are motivated by Marx's revolutionary ideology. Publicly, he pretends to disavow them but his refusal to see anything bad about Cuba is very telling of where his heart lies.

Why vote for a man who wants to emulate Castro? Those who support him must also want a Socialist dictatorship or at least are useful idiots, conned by his promise of free stuff. These are the lazy bums who want Other People's Money to fund their lifestyle so that they don't have to work.

These will also the ones who will eat from garbage cans like what happened in Venezuela if Sanders becomes a dictator like Chavez. The country will be impoverished. Those who have the "get up and go" spirit will be able to flee taking whatever money they have left. The bums who rely on handouts won't have the fighting spirit, initiative or energy to save themselves. That's why they will end up dining from trash cans as happened in Venezuela. Ironically, these would be Sanders' early supporters. In a way, it will serve them right.

The ones who grow rich in such and environment will be the bad people who are in power with Sanders. They will be the new top 1%. All this happened in both Cuba and Venezuela. It will happen in America if Sanders succeeds in becoming another Castro whom he admires.

Bernie hires campaign advisor who wants to abolish prisons.

Socialists really want to destroy America. That's why they always advocate policies that weaken and ruin America.

The article is locked and so I am unable to edit it. Let me say that Jason Kessler's articles have been removed. Also things that wiki consider as "white supremacist", are simply anti Islam. Some of the articles are against Muslim immigration. Being Muslims is not being member of a race. There are white Muslims as well as Muslims of all the different hues of the human rainbow.

The Daily Caller makes a common sense argument against Muslim immigration which I fully support. Finally, the Founders of Daily Caller are Tucker Carlson and Neil Patel. "Patel" is obviously an Indian name. So how can an Indian be a white supremacist when he is not white?

I think Daily Caller is a bold attempt by Conservatives to speak truth to power of the Leftist elite that controls most of the news media and Universities.

I have read Daily Caller for years and I have not come across any material that is "white supremacist." I am not white.

You see neverfail, I come from a part of the world uninflected by the virus of political correctness. Can you recall that I gave you links showing former PM Dr Mahathir calling his people lazy and dishonest?

If it is true, you should be allowed to say it. Unfortunately, in the west in general, any criticism of any group is met by the left with accusations of racism and white supremacism.

I don’t buy that.
