Default Democratic Sen. Brian Schatz deletes tweet suggesting 'chemical weapons' used at US-M

Libs will sink to any depth in the name of politics.

Hey, if ya don't wanna be hit with tear gas then don't try to swarm over the border illegally.

Democratic Sen. Brian Schatz deletes tweet suggesting 'chemical weapons' used at US-Mexico border

Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, tweeted Sunday that the use of tear gas against Central American migrants who attempted to enter the U.S. illegally may have been a violation of international agreements governing the use of chemical weapons -- before he backtracked.

The Associated Press reported that U.S. agents shot several rounds of the gas after migrants tried to penetrate several points along the border at the San Ysidro border crossing between Tijuana, Mexico, and California. Migrants sought to squeeze through gaps in wire, climb over fences and peel back metal sheeting to enter.


In response to the reports, Schatz initially tweeted: "Tear gas across the border against unarmed families is a new low." Approximately 45 minutes later, Schatz tweeted: "Who gave the order? Did it implement or contravene policy?" He then tweeted "WHO GAVE THE ORDER?" in all caps.

Schatz then asked: "Why tear gas? Is this consistent with the Conventions on Chemical Weapons?"

However, the tweet was posted for just a few minutes before it was deleted and replaced by this message: "Anyone uncomfortable with spraying tear gas on children is welcome to join the coalition of the moral and the sane. We can argue about other stuff when we’ve got our country back."

In an exchange with opinion writer Stephen Miller, Schatz admitted that "I went ahead and deleted the one about chemical weapons because I just don’t know enough about what happened." He then asked Miller: "Does this not strike you as excessive?"

A spokesman for Schatz did not respond to Fox News' requests for comment.

Schatz, a former Hawaii state representative and lieutenant governor, was appointed to the U.S. Senate in 2012 to serve out Daniel Inouye's term after his death. Schatz was elected to his first full Senate term in 2016.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Anybody who does not believe that a thrown rock can be lethal, is welcome to stand in some spot within hearing distance of a person throwing one at him.

Is it just me or has the Left decided on using the term "moral" much more?...

It sure seems like it. However, just like every other word that the left "appropriates", they have no idea what it really means and will change the definition to suit their agenda.

TDS unless he can point to his outrage at Obama five years ago . . .
"Deported migrants attempted a once-common tactic of rushing the border en masse on Sunday. But Border Patrol agents met them with tear gas and rubber bullets and forced them to turn back."
