And in Barb Wire, Tony Perkins writes this:

"Fellow MSNBC host Joe Scarborough could hardly believe his eyes. In a string of social media posts, he fires back at Reid. 'If you are attacking Steve Scalise's voting record right now, do yourself a favor and just stop now. I can't even believe what I'm seeing. Who would even think for one second that it is appropriate to attack a man who is fighting for his life after an assassination attempt?' As for Scalise’s values, he tweets, 'So let me get this straight. If you're a practicing Catholic and you believe what the church says, you are open to attack after being shot? He's fighting for his life right now. What is wrong with you? Until he's out of ICU, why don't you take it up with the Pope?'"

However, since these are not either from Reuters or C-Span, you may choose to disbelieve them...
that's called using a partial truth to promote a big fat lie. She did not say that she thought that the shooting was justified. as the op states

Of course, she did not claim that the shooting was "justified." (Who would go along with that--other than a few fringers?)

Nonetheless, here is exactly what she did say:

"There’s a whole country out there and a lot of people, at least in my Twitter timeline, and it’s a delicate thing, because everybody is wishing the congressman well and hoping that he recovers, but Steve Scalise has a history that we’ve all been forced to sort of ignore on race." [Bold added]

There is that weasel word, "but," again.

As I have said before--and I am not the first to say it--"but" essentially means: Ignore everything I have said up to this point; here comes the real scoop.

Yup!

I can see the people responding trying to shift the conversation that way, which is kinda funny when anybody can look at the title of this thread and see the lie posted there...
MSNBC host Joy Reid thinks that the shooting of Congressman Scalise was justified
And the person who started this thread and posted that title is asking who would go along with that statement...

You have asked me previously not to respond to your posts (and vice-versa). And I have attempted to honor that request (albeit with one slip, several months ago).

But when you call me a liar, I find it difficult to restrain myself.

Do you, sir, have any evidence to back up your incendiary charge?

Steve Scalise is having complications requiring procedures to control infection. It's been a month since the attempted assassination. Very serious injuries.

http://www.nola.com/politics/index.s...s_conditio.htm


lScalise, 51, has been hospitalized since June 14 when he was shot in the hip by a gunman who opened fire on a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia. Scalise was in imminent danger of death when he arrived at MedStar Washington Hospital Center. The bullet fractured both of his pelvic bones, damaged internal organs and caused major bleeding, the hospital said.

A quick search shows nothing to support the story as holding much water.
Even a few other political forums reached a dead end.

But you didn't post a thread that said you felt she wasn't being sensitive enough for your liking. You posted a story with a pure BS headline and attached it to this woman.
