Phil Montag cries the “taken out of context” excuse

The demorats did the correct thing, this time. Don’t expect it to become a long-lasting pattern.

From Yahoo: Nebraska Democrats removed party official Phil Montag from his job on Thursday after a recording surfaced of him saying he wishes House Majority Whip Steve Scalise died during a recent attack.

Earlier this month, a gunman opened fire with a rifle on a group of Republican politicians practicing for the Congressional baseball game, striking Scalise and several others. Scalise remains in the hospital with a long recovery ahead after multiple surgeries.

“His whole job is to get people, convince Republicans to f—–g kick people off f—–g health care. I’m glad he got shot,” Montag, the technology’s committee former co-chair, said in the audio recording.

Montag continued: “I wish he was f—–g dead.”

Nebraska Democratic Party Chairwoman Jane Kleeb confirmed to FOX 42 News in Nebraska on Thursday it was really Montag’s voice.

“We obviously condemn any kind of violence, whether it’s comments on Facebook or comments in a meeting,” said Kleeb told the Fox affiliate.

Kleeb fired Montag as soon as she heard the recording, according to the Omaha World-Herald. The conversation took place in a private home in Omaha, according to the paper.

When reached by the World-Herald, Montag said, “I did not call for the congressman’s death,” and claimed the tape had been taken out of context.

  1. Well, I say, LOCK HIM UP, that is a less of a man but, isn’t Mr. Scalise doing better? The more bad wishes the better he gets. May God always be by Mr. Scalise’s side so he can get back to legislate.

  6. Remember when a woman got fired for saying Mike Obama looked like a gorilla? Can’t have it both ways (even though everyone is trying)

  7. Sounds like he is missing a soul, and likely also an inhibitory center in his pre-frontal cortex. So treat him like a sub-human primate. Well done.
    My only concern is that it says he made this horrendous attack “in a private home”. As in, with his family? Friends? Or was it a fund raiser in a private home, or something similar? We have to be careful about allowing people privacy and 1st amendment rights in their own homes, and, within some semblance of civility, in public.

  8. You mean a Democrat actually is held accountable for his words? Amazing!
    Perhaps there is hope for America after all.

      • If that’s the case,he gets fired from THAT position,but gets placed elsewhere,someplace he won’t be noticed for a while. Just watch-he’ll be back where he was once everything mellows out.

        • You said it, truck. Exactly what my first thought was! Agree. Dems have a shelf life of a Twinkie buried in the dump: they NEVER go away. I bet the average age of the Dems in Congress is 70. This boy, Phil, has a loooong career ahead with the Jackass party.

  11. Firing this fool won’t change his mind or make him think he has done anything wrong, all firing him will do is make him think he upset Republicans and this kind of mindset, he will see it as he won, bring back the stocks. Imprisonment for all these fools is pointless and there are not enough prisons in the Us to house these idiots, let alone all the snowflake students. Need to make an example of them
