Set the sentence diagrams to the side because the Republican lawmaker from Center Valley Pennsylvania wants you to know exactly how he feels about last night’s police shooting in Dallas, Texas. Taking a page from Donald Trump, Representative Justin Simmons predictably puts the blame of last night’s shooting “squarely on the leadership at the top in this country.” Also known as President Barack Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch. He goes to say “it’s time for the silent majority to rise up and put a stop to this insanity in November.”
Here is Representative Simmons’ full statement:
I woke up this morning to the horrible news in Dallas. I’m just sick to my stomach over what has happened to our country over the last 8 years.
Make no mistake I place the blame squarely on the leadership at the top in this country that doesn’t publicly respect our law enforcement officers that put their lives on the line to keep civil order and keep us safe (sic).
