JOE SCARBOROUGH (CO-HOST): As Kurt Anderson said, a turning point was '94 where their jack-booted thugs attacks, accusing our law enforcement officers of being like Nazis and like stormtroopers, saying they wanted to kick down doors and kill Americans, seize their property. Again, just an out-and-out attack on America's law enforcement officers, and of course a few days after that vicious attack against our law enforcement officers, we had Oklahoma City, the worst domestic terror attack ever.
You've seen these NRA ads that they're running now, which just come close, pretty close to inciting violence. There's one where a guy that took [a] sledgehammer to our image, and it is intended to incite extremists. And I just wonder how long Paul Ryan and the rest of the Republican Party can comfortably, blindly follow these people.
