Dem strategist spreads hashtag targeting the ‘hunting’ of Republicans


Following the shooting at the GOP congressional baseball practice Wednesday, Democratic strategist James Devine of New Jersey posted two disturbing Twitter messages using the hashtags #HuntRepublicans and #HuntRepublicanCongressmen… and he says he doesn’t care that it’s insensitive.

WKXW-FM reported that Devin said Thursday, “It is insensitive, and I don’t care. You want me to be politically correct? I don’t have time for that anymore. I’m not apologizing if it offended snowflake Republicans.”

At least one Republican has also offended Republicans over the shooting, when GOP Rep Mark Sanford even tried to blame President Trump for the attack on a Morning Joe appearance.

On Wednesday after the shooting, Devine wrote on his Facebook page, “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.”

In further defiance, Devin tweeted out: “I am sorry if my #HuntRepublicanCongressmen hashtag hurt the feelings of any GOP snowflakes but you have not engaged in civil discourse.”

Then he threw in another allegation, trying to blame Sarah Palin on the shooting of Gabby Giffords:

In an interview with MyCentralJersey on Thursday, the unapologetic Devin said, “I think it speaks for itself. Yesterday’s events are the result of escalating rhetoric and vitriol that has been evident in our political system culminating with the election of our president and the chickens came home to roost, you know?”

MyCentralJersey reported that Devin has actually been in some trouble himself:

In 2013, Devine was arrested and accused of shoplifting about $22.47 worth of merchandise from a ShopRite store in Linden. A store loss prevention office told police that Devine was observed on surveillance camera placing two bags of lettuce, a bottle of hair conditioner, a container of protein powder in a shopping bag and walking out without paying.
