A senior editor of the left-wing website The Raw Story is facing blowback from conservative Twitter after he said House Majority Whip Steve Scalise deserved a Darwin Award for continuing to oppose gun control policies despite almost dying from a mass shooting last summer.
Martin Cizmar, a former Daily News-Record reporter who now covers politics for The Raw Story, started his rant against Mr. Scalise after the Republican congressman denounced the vicious threats sent to senators and their families after confirming Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on Saturday.

After facing backlash for the tweet, Mr. Cizmar suggested that Mr. Scalise an avid Second Amendment proponent who almost died last June when he was gunned down by a leftist gunman at a GOP congressional baseball practice didnt deserve any sympathy because he supported the gun policies that contributed to his injuries.
To all the unhinged wingnuts angry about my calling a whiny Republic man a little baby do you support gun control? If so, please keep talking. If not, why do I care about some guy grazed by a bullet who allows children to die because of his dumb and extremist policies? 🎩Martin Cizmar (@martincizmar) October 8, 2018
Mr. Cizmar then declared that Mr. Scalise deserved to be nominated for a Darwin Award, a satirical award for people who contribute to human evolution by killing themselves off in an embarrassing or ironic way.

They speak so lightly about attempted murder and act as if the victims of their assaults somehow deserve it.
People like this incite more of these crimes. And should themselves be held accountable for the agitation they generate among the Useful Idiots of the Left.
Obviously has zero grasp of the concept of darwin award.
Standing up for your beliefs — even if doing so puts you in the line of fire — doesn’t qualify for darwin award.
Shoot Republicans and call for California to secede.
They should be careful for what they wish for.
No sane person wants a war, much less a “civil” war.
It’s ComDem Insanity talking.
Such hate is sickening.
Nope, hot hardly. Conservatives are targeted on Twitter. But some of us are still there.
A mass shooting done by a DEMOCRAT!
The Democrats, including Antifa supporters, are great when throwing out threats but will probably melt if shooting actually starts.
Actually he supports the policies that are God given rights ensconced in our Constitution.
Who are these creeps hiding behind their ‘puters in mommy’s basement? Big words, big keyboards, small balls.
Democrats and civil war ... this wouldn’t be the first time they started one. Only this time the South is Republican and we’re the ones who actually know how to shoot and hit a target.
Then hang in there, if for no other reason to make their heads explode...
Those “rights” had nothing to do with his injuries. The right to own a gun is one thing, it does not allow anyone to shoot who they disagree on politics with.
That’s ComDem Insanity and Hate.
Yeah. Sure. That's what Scalise did. Uh huh. Just ask him.
Thanks. It troubles me deeply to know what these sick people might do.
Truly certifiably insane.
Oh, I can see them shooting someone, with no remorse.
I cannot see them doing so expecting for fire to be returned.
When that happens it will be very ugly.
Poor attempt to state “from conservatives on twitter”. Since pretty much all of social media is liberal in its orientation, it would take a liar or an idiot to make the claim that twitter is conservative dominated.
I am talking about why Steve Scalise supports the 2nd Amendment. Not about his injuries, or the right to shoot someone who disagrees with him. The liberal is as usual and idiot.
