I can’t make up my mind who should be more ashamed: them for doing it, or us for putting up with them doing it. I’m pretty sure I DO know who’s more likely to change their, umm, approach, though.
A total of 30 Republican members of Congress have either been attacked or revealed that they were the victim of a death threat since the beginning of May.
May 8: Wendi Wright, 35, was arrested after stalking Rep. David Kustoff (Tenn.) and trying to run him off the road. After pulling over, Wright “began to scream and strike the windows on Kustoff’s car and even reached inside the vehicle.”
May 9: Virginia Rep. Tom Garrett needed heavy security at a town hall after receiving a series of death threats in May that police “deemed to be credible and real.”
“This is how we’re going to kill your wife,” one message said. Others detailed how they would kill his children, and even his dog.
May 12: A town hall participant accosted North Dakota Rep. Kevin Cramer, shoving fake dollar bills into his suit jacket. A Kramer supporter grabbed the same man by the neck. Both men were ejected by law enforcement, but neither were charged.
May 12: A Tucson, Ariz. school district employee was arrested by the FBI for sending several death threats to Arizona Rep. Martha McSally. The man threatened to shoot McSally and told her to “be careful” because her days “were numbered.”
May 21: Florida Rep. Ted Yoho described his office getting vandalized by protesters. One female constituent left a voicemail on an office answering machine, promising, “Next time I see you, I’m going to beat your f**king ass.”
June 14: Sens. Rand Paul (Ky.) and Jeff Flake (Ariz.), and Reps. Steve Scalise (La.), Kevin Brady (Texas), Jack Bergman (Mich.), Mike Bishop (Mich.), Mike Conaway (Texas), Roger Williams (Texas), John Moolenaar (Mich.), Gary Palmer (Ala.), Chuck Fleischmann (Tenn.), Ron DeSantis (Fla.), Barry Loudermilk (Ga.), Mark Walker (N.C.), Steve Pearce (N.M.), Brad Wenstrup (Ohio), Rodney Davis (Ill.), Jeff Duncan (S.C.), Trent Kelly (Miss.), Mo Brooks (Ala.), and Joe Barton (Texas) were attacked by a gunman during a baseball practice in Alexandria, Va.
Scalise, the House majority whip, was shot in the hip, and remains in the hospital. Four others were injured, including a staffer for Williams and two Capitol Police officers assigned to Scalise.
The same day, New York Rep. Claudia Tenney received an email reading, “One down, 216 to go.”
The list goes on from there—and this is just since May. Remember, too, that these are just the Congressmen who have been attacked by violent liberal-fascist goons. Throw in the who-even-knows-how-many ordinary folks out there who have been assaulted by these despicable creeps, and all of a sudden it begins to look as if Civil War v2.0 has already gotten under way—with only one side doing all the fighting.
Remember, too, that all of this—every last bit of it—is down to Democrat Socialists refusing to accept the results of the last election, their ongoing attempt to overthrow a legitimately-elected President, and the bloodthirsty rhetoric they’ve been so free and easy with in support of their coup attempt.
One way or another, by hook or by crook, they mean to rule us. They don’t give even the most infinitesimal damn about the good of the nation or the people in it. They care only about power: exercising it, maintaining it, expanding it. And even now, their hateful incitement to violence continues without the slightest pause or diminution.
They will not stop. They will NEVER stop. They will have to BE stopped.
Well, so be it. Let them reap the whirlwind for all me. When their vicious filth finally does splash back on them at last, my sympathy and concern over the injury and horror inflicted on the individuals involved won’t be detectable with an electron microscope.
