House Majority Whip Steve Scalise predicts ahead of midterm elections that the Republicans will hold the House due to Democrats being “out of touch” with the people.

“I think we hold the House,” Scalise said on Fox News.

Addressing his reasoning, Scalise claimed that Democrats’ violent rhetoric during Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation will keep voters away from their party.

Talking about the Democrats’ hostility, he said, “This isn’t what politics is about in America.”

“Margaret Thatcher used to say, ‘first you win the argument, then you win the vote,'” Scalise said. “They’re not winning the argument if they’re resorting to violence, and ultimately they’ll lose the vote if they continue to call on violence.”

Scalise called for both Republican and Democrat leaders to stand up against violent rhetoric — “There’s no place for it.”

An example of violence incited from the left was when former Attorney General Eric Holder responded to former first lady Michelle Obama’s line while campaigning for Democrats. He said “‘When they go low, we go high,” is not enough and that there is a “new Democratic party.”

“No. When they go low, we kick them,” Holder said.

“You resolve your differences at the ballot box, you don’t resort to violence,” Scalise said.

Since, Holder responded to the media’s attention over his comment, saying he’s “obviously not advocating violence.”

Below are some other violent uses of rhetoric that are being addressed:

When it comes to the GOP, Scalise told Fox News, “You feel a lot of momentum right now our way.”

He added that what people saw during the Kavanaugh hearings in the Senate angered people, deterring them from Democrats — also adding, with the economy, “they like what they’re seeing.”

“You’re seeing an economy that’s booming, and yet Democrats want to raise taxes, they want to abolish ICE,” Scalise said. “They’ve got a very leftist agenda that’s out of touch with the people I’m talking to when I go to swing districts.”

“You resolve your differences at the ballot box, you don’t resort to violence,” Scalise said.

Nobody is resorting to violence, so stop with this nonsense.

The mainstream media doesn’t cover much of the Democrat violence, so it’s understandable if you get your news there, you’re not aware of it. Check out Antifa running Portland w/ the mayor’s blessing — and they’re dumping urine on reporters, harassing old men in traffic, spraying people w/ Mace… Check… Read more »
