Senate Majority Leader McConnell threatened by protestors

Gun Free Zone“I know where you live” is a threat. This is not something we can beat around the bush about. It is a threat. The Senate Majority Leader was threatened in his home state by some radical protesters.

Just the latest of many incidents. I would say this is going to lead to violence, but it already has -- on a baseball diamond in DC, in Rand Paul's backyard.

Teenager assaulted for MAGA hat

News 4 San AntonioPolice are investigating after a teen says he was verbally attacked and assaulted at a Whataburger for wearing a Make America Great Again hat.

In the video, you can see a man throw a drink in 16-year-old Hunter Richard's face before leaving the restaurant with his hat. Hunter said some of his hair was pulled during the assault.

If you can't tolerate people who disagree with you, you're not very tolerant, are you?

About the liberal media inciting people to violence over politics...

CBSNewsA 33-year-old California man who told the FBI he was upset about the repeal of net neutrality regulations has been arrested on charges of threatening to kill the family of Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Threatening to kill people over network neutrality is absurd.

Scott Pruitt resigns citing unprecedented attacks

Washington Times“It is extremely difficult for me to cease serving you in this role first because I count it as a blessing to be serving you in any capacity, but also because of the transformative work that is occurring,” he wrote in his resignation letter obtained by Fox News. “However the unrelenting attacks on me personally, my family, are unprecedented and have taken a sizable toll on all of us.”

Trump's announcement on Twitter was very positive about Pruitt and doesn't suggest Trump asked for the resignation. I think Pruitt really is fed up with the attacks and threats on his family. Which the left will likely read as blood in the water, and swarm on the remaining targets.

The people doing the stalking and harassment and threats and actual violence need to be jailed.

Teacher harasses public official during dinner

New York PostEnvironmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt became the most recent Trump administration figure to get an earful while trying to get a mouthful at a DC restaurant, according to a Facebook posting Monday.

Teacher Kristin Mink was shown approaching Pruitt as he chowed down with a pal at the Teaism restaurant Monday, four blocks from his office at the EPA’s headquarters.

What kind of example does this set for her students? Is harassing people over policy differences now acceptable? They are doing it to ordinary people now, even just strangers wearing a Make America Great Again hat. We're seeing stories like this even day now.

The Left needs to back the fuck off before they get people killed.

Considering in one of the links above the victim was likely carrying a gun, likely it will be the attacker who gets a few extra breathing holes, which is only appropriate. But I'd rather have a political debate than a political civil war.

Rand Paul and family threatened with death by axe

Courier JournalA man is accused of threatening to chop up U.S. Sen. Rand Paul and his family with an ax.

The man has been arrested. He allegedly called in the threats to Paul's Bowling Green office.

"Capitol Police have issued an arrest warrant for a man who threatened to kill me and chop up my family with an axe," Paul said. "It's just horrendous that we have to deal with things like this."

It's funny how the targets of this sort of thing are almost always Republicans. (Giffords was an exception, but the man who killed her was just stark raving nuts).

Facebook censors Declaration of Independence

The Vindicator“He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

“He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

“He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

“He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

“He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.”

This is why online platforms need to commit to the ideal of free speech, not automated censorship.

Heckler's veto

Daily WirePatriot Prayer, which has been associated with elements of the alt-right, had a permit to demonstrate in Portland’s Federal Plaza Saturday, but Antifa showed up for a “counter-demonstration.” Before marchers had even stepped foot on the street, police had already seized “utility knives, clubs, and chemical sprays” from Antifa “counter-protesters” and detained several people clad in black associated with the group.

“Anti-fascist counter-demonstrators immediately began lobbing eggs, half-empty water bottles, and firecrackers at the conservative marchers, prompting federal police to fire paintballs filled with pepper-spray into the crowd,” the Oregonian said.

Antifa managed to strike only four people in their assault, but the projectiles began what police called a “riot.” The police were then forced to revoke the Patriot Prayer group’s permit and dissolve the demonstration.

Four members of Antifa were arrested.

Funny how bad acts by the "counterprotesters", including obviously premeditated violence, were used to shut down the original demonstration.

The left is going full Weimar

Front Page Mag What they want is to wreck America, go full Weimar, move to street violence, and then, by persuasion or force, impose their own system to deal with the emergency. What better way to trash most of the forms of government, the Constitution, checks and balances, than by burning everything down.

The excuses, border separation, police shootings, etc are just excuses for that endgame. They're propaganda to achieve an end.

We got here because all the brakes came off the left's train. It beat its liberal opponents. And now it's going to scream endlessly that everyone on the right is a Nazi because that justifies its intended violence. And that violence is intended to further radicalize everyone to the left.

Civility? Please.

The whole purpose is an overthrow of the existing order in the name of a political emergency. It's what every totalitarian system does. Set off violence, then seize power. The left doesn't have good odds of pulling it off. But the Dem leadership is incapable of controlling them. Or preventing them from wrecking its electoral plans.

They might have been able to resist once they got through the primaries, but the retirement of Kennedy will raise the stakes. They backed themselves into a corner with the various filibuster policies, and they are going to have to pay the price for that.

Death threats against Republicans rising...

Daily CallerRepublican Arizona Rep. David Schweikert says he received more death threats in 2017 than every other year he’s been in office combined.

“My fear is this is the playbook of a lot of our brothers and sisters on the left — they’re going to get fringier and fringier, louder and louder, angrier and angrier, and as you and I know, we sometimes have some folks in our society who aren’t completely healthy,” Schweikert said while appearing on “Plaidcast,” a podcast hosted by Republican Rep. Sean Duffy of Wisconsin.

“And we had more death threats last year, in my office, even one towards my little girl, than we’ve ever had in all the other years combined and my fear is that this rage that is being generated for political turnout is actually really becoming unhealthy for our political society,” Schweikert continued.

The Arizona congressman has served in Congress since 2011.

“It’s incredibly troubling, because I’ve had threats against my family and my children as well — horrible things said,” Duffy agreed. “We know what happened to [House Majority Whip] Steve Scalise last year and our baseball team and with that, I don’t think the left recognizes that this isn’t the way the system was set up.”

“We’re supposed to debate, we’re supposed to argue, and we can be passionate, but then we go vote and we have elections and after we have winners we kind of step back and let them govern,” Duffy said.

And not just against politicians, but sometimes against their kids.
