Senator Chris Murphy, D-Conn., is a master at opening his mouth to insert his foot. He has also distinguished himself among his Democratic Congressional counterparts in many ways.
We’ve documented numerous instances here, including a sickening tweet he posted in July declaring after the Uvalde mass shooting police response video was released that it supposedly proved that the “good guy with a gun” scenario “was a gun industry created lie, designed to sell more guns.” Murphy, of course, did not revisit his claim after the “good guy with a gun” scenario indeed played out in both Greenwood, Indiana and Missouri barely a week later.
In any event, on Thursday Murphy once again did his thing by proclaiming in response to reports about the attempted breach of the FBI’s Cincinnati office and the subsequent six-hour standoff where a shootout occurred and the alleged perpetrator was killed that “Trump and Republican leaders are threatening law enforcement’s lives with their heated rhetoric.”
The overheated rhetoric of Trump, his supporters, and Republican leaders is threatening the lives of law enforcement. https://t.co/LLerdTYabD

While it’s not a surprise whatsoever to see a Democrat “never let a crisis go to waste” even in a situation like this one where the investigation is just getting started and possible motives are not yet known, conservatives who are beyond fed up with the constant lazy stereotyping they inevitably see from leftists after incidents like the one in Cincinnati took Murphy to school big time and provided him with a few inconvenient reminders:
The Democrat candidate for vice president raised funds to help rioters who set fire to police stations. These are fake garbage.

Supporters of your party opened fire at a baseball practice & nearly killed @SteveScalise.
Supporters of your party rioted, committed assault, set fires, & looted “Nike” stores for social Justice.
Supporters of your party attempted to assassinate Supreme Court Justices.
So, 🤫 https://t.co/aH2QbQiDh3

I’m old enough to remember when Steve Scalise was shot. Rand Paul was attacked. When mobs of Dem voters surrounded and threatened Trump supporters at campaign events; conservative speakers on campuses; & ordinary citizens during the 2020 riots. Smfh

Perhaps most importantly, this compilation of video clips of powerful Democrats including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Financial Committee Chair Maxine Waters behaving very badly and urging confrontations and “uprisings” in the streets was shared in the comments:
