This is the modern left.  On Sunday, Twitchy informed us that Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., took issue with a 70 percent tax rate proposed by newly-elected Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to pay for her “Green New Deal,” a radical scheme designed to destroy the U.S. economy for a generation of Americans.

“Republicans: Let Americans keep more of their own hard-earned money.  Democrats: Take away 70% of your income and give it to leftist fantasy programs,” he wrote on Twitter.

Scalise responded:

One person responded:

Where do these people come from?  That’s easy.  They’re leftists.  And as I’ve repeatedly said since February 2011, liberals prove on a daily basis that theirs is an ideology of insane, bloodthirsty rage and hate.

Keep in mind that a radical leftist already tried to kill Scalise back in July 2017 as he and other Republicans were practicing for a charity baseball game.  Leftists like Joy Reidcelebrated, saying he deserved to be shot because of his conservative political views.  Other sick leftists even hailed the shooter, James Hodgkinson, as a hero.

This is the modern left.  Let that sink in.
