A left-wing writer is making no apologies after suggesting on Twitter that the Wednesday morning shooting of a Republican congressman and staffers may have been tantamount to an act of “self-defense.”
Malcolm Harris, who has a book contract with Little, Brown of New York, made tasteless tweets Wednesday morning following the shooting of at least four people in Alexandria, Virginia, including Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.).
Harris suggested the shooting of conservative Republicans could be justified.
“If the shooter has a serious health condition then is taking potshots at the GOP house leadership considered self defense?” Harris tweeted.
