Fiery Malkin on Scalise Attack: 'There's a Problem on the Left and They Need to Acknowledge It'
Michelle Malkin called on "people of good faith" on the left to acknowledge the problem that exists with "dehumanizing" rhetoric against conservatives.
Malkin was reacting to Wednesday's shooting ambush in which Republican members of Congress were attacked at an early-morning baseball practice.
The shooter supported Bernie Sanders and posted numerous anti-GOP messages, including one that read "Trump is a traitor. Trump has destroyed our democracy. It's time to destroy Trump & Co."
The host of "Michelle Malkin Investigates" explained that she moved from Washington, D.C., almost 10 years ago because she grew tired of the "toxic environment."
Malkin said the hatred of President Donald Trump has risen to the point where people on the internet make vile comments about his wife and 11-year-old son.

She called out the New York Times for posting a "vile" editorial which mentioned Sarah Palin as being partially to blame for the 2011 shooting of Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ).
Malkin said that was a "lie," since the shooter in that case was shown to be "obsessed and fixated" on Giffords since 2007, long before Palin shared a controversial map "targeting" Democratic lawmakers.
"Those are not people of good faith," she said.
She pointed to other shocking incidents in recent weeks, including the Kathy Griffin mock-beheading of President Trump and a police horse being stabbed by an Antifa member at a "March Against Sharia" in Pennsylvania.
"There's a problem on the left and they need to acknowledge it," said Malkin, acknowledging there are "extremists" on both sides.
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) remains in critical condition after being shot in the hip. He laid on the field for about 10 minutes bleeding before the shooter was taken down and his colleagues could get to him.
