The year of divisive and harsh political rhetoric continues. The language people have used has already led to congresspeople being shot at, and who knows how much more detrimental it will become. But Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) refuses to take back his statement that the Republicans were “evil” for trying to get their healthcare bill passed. Even MSNBC’s Katy Tur asked incredulously, “Evil, though? Evil?!?” And yet Murphy still refused to relent. He actually said that “we [must] do everything in our power to kill this deeply harmful, malevolent piece of legislation.” Bet you that’s what James Hodgkinson thought he was doing that day in Alexandria on the baseball field, doing everything in his power to kill pieces of legislation. This is disgraceful, Mr. Murphy.
