Rep. Steube Slams Dems For ‘Encouraging Violence’, Says It Will ‘Bring Voters To the Polls Who’ve Never Voted’
On Monday’s episode of “The Sara Carter Show,” Congressman Greg Steube, R-FL, slammed Democrats for doing little to quell the violence that he says is spreading across the nation as the November elections draw near.
Steube, an Army veteran whose from a law enforcement family, warned that former Vice President Joe Biden and his campaign aren’t just dealing with old time Democrats but have sold out their party to a radical left that will take the party hostage if Biden were to win the election.
However, Steube said he doesn’t see that happening. The Florida congressman has seen a surge of support for President Donald Trump and many of his constituents have sighted law and order as their top concern.
Just look at what the Biden campaign has done.
For example, according to a report by The Daily Caller, Biden’s Vice Presidential pick Kamala Harris “promoted” a bail fund for protestors that’s led to the release of violent criminals, including a man who allegedly sexually assaulted an 8-year-old girl. Steube said it’s unconscionable.
“I think that they (the Democrats) think that by encouraging violence and encouraging these protests and encouraging these people to the point where you have the Vice President, candidate for the Democrats raising money to bail these people out of jail if they’re arrested for rioting, I think they think that it all settled down after Biden, if Biden were to win, that it would all settle down after the election,” said Rep. Steube.
“I tell you, the words matter, words are very important, especially from leaders of our country,” he said. “And when you have the leader of the house, declaring that Republicans are enemies of the state, you’ve taken things to a whole different level. And there are people that listen to that, that are going to react and act on that. Because the leader of their party, the highest Democrat in the country, is saying things like that, and it’s dangerous. And we’re seeing it all across the country.”
Steube applauded President Donald Trump’s efforts to put an end to the violence by threatening to pull federal funding from cities that ‘allow anarchy and rioting in the streets.”
He said Trump’s stand for law and order is something most Americans understand. Steube added that it’s those very issues that will bring the independents and voters to the polls, even those who may never have never voted before.
“And I think you’re gonna see a whole bunch of people who have never voted for before, get out and vote because they are seeing things happen in the country that they’ve never seen before,” Steube said.
“Recently, we had a woman call the office, and she said her 73-year-old boyfriend who’s never voted before in his entire life, is registering to vote to vote for the President,” he recalled. :And that’s not because suddenly he has an interest in politics, it’s suddenly because he’s seen the destruction going on in our country, and that this isn’t the America that we should have and supporting those policies that the President is supporting.”
