The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Press Secretary for Congressman John Garamendi (D-Calif.) Dante Atkins, Daily Beast editors, then CNN Contributor Donna Brazile and George Soros minion Zack Kopplin built up a climate of hate against House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) with smears of enemy-combatant “Nazism” and KKK affiliation—contributing to the mind-set of the mass shooter who left the congressman critically injured as of Wednesday, according to a review of the libelers’ social media activity.
Scalise attacker James Hodgkinson—whom Capitol Police killed in an Alexandria, Virginia Wednesday morning shootout—posted a Jan. 2015 comic from Universal UClick syndicated cartoonist Stuart Carlson that likened a group Scalise addressed in 2002 the European-American Unity and Rights Organization, or EURO, to the Ku Klux Klan. Carlson portrayed the ethnic affinity group EURO as wearing Klan hoods.
In Dec. 2014 when the story of the speech broke, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, or DCCC, released a statement smearing Rep. Scalise as “cheerleading a group of KKK members and neo-Nazis at a white supremacist rally.”

Around that same time when the story of Scalise’s 2002 speech to EURO broke, Garamendi Press Secretary Atkins said Scalise embodied every part of the lynching and terror of the Ku Klux Klan minus “the burning crosses.”
#Scalise: all of the KKK's signature policies, just without the burning crosses.

The Daily Beast published a tweet that remains up at press time for a Jan. 2015 story, “The Louisiana Nazis Who Courted Steve Scalise.”
— The Daily Beast (@thedailybeast) January 4, 2015
The story’s website headline and URL within days changed to “The Louisiana Racists …;” reached by phone, story author Jason Berry can’t recall who changed the headline to not liken the group Scalise addressed to a genocidal, warmongering nation-state.
Scalise told The Hill in April 2015, “The thing that probably frustrated me and hurt me the most was when there were inaccurate stories written about me or stories that were written that were trying to imply or infer things that weren’t true.”
Daily Beast media contacts have not responded to a GotNews inquiry at press time about their defamatory headline.
Among those standing by the anti-Scalise “Nazi” smear is former Democratic National Committee chair and then CNN Contributor Donna Brazile.

CNN fired Brazile in October for being too shamelessly partisan even for them. She fed debate questions ahead of time to Hillary Clinton.
DC media Twitter seems to be dying for wacky sitcom plot explanation for Scalise.
“Lucy u got some splainin’ to do bout these Nazis!”

How is comparing a voter group that Congressman Scalise addressed to the German Third Reich the U.S. fought total war against not an incitement to violence?
Zack Kopplin an investigator with the Government Accountability Project—itself a recipient of the big bucks from globalist puppetmaster George Soros’ Open Society Foundations—called for left-wing terror victim Scalise to “resign” and, like other far-leftists, smeared EURO as “Neo-Nazi” and as the “KKK.”
House Whip Scalise's aides privately confirm that Scalise attended Neo-Nazi/KKK rally in 2002. Time to resign,… http://t.co/NBfJpYDwVp

Veteran Louisiana journalist Jeremy Alford, writing in the New York Times, quoted a person at the EURO conference who said that Scalise did in fact speak there on “how America was founded on Christian principles, Christian men who founded this country and…how we’re getting away from that.”
