    Democrat Violence was Predictable

    Democrat Violence was Predictable

    I have noticed in the left wing press that they are backtracking trying to blame Trump or the right for the rising left wing violence but that is par for the course in that ideology where it is always someone Else's fault for ones own actions. The danger will be if, like the guy that mowed down the Muslims at a Mosque in England, the right starts responding in kind. Then there will be a real problem.

    he attempted mass murder of several Republican members of Congress by a lone Bernie Sanders Democrat was the foreseeable fruit of the “Resist!” movement. I know: I predicted it. Barring a change of approach on the anti-Trump side, more such extremism is likely. Anomalous response to President Trump has been the Democrats’ strategy since election day when, contrary to custom, Hillary Clinton never made an appearance before her assembled staff and supporters to concede victory on camera.

    Within hours of Trump’s victory, leading Democrats such as Representative Maxine Waters of California were calling for impeachment. Waters’ ridiculous recommendation drew and draws widespread attention. There is no doubt that the president has not committed treason, bribery, or any high crimes or misdemeanors, but this does not stop them. In recent weeks, she has been joined by a second Democratic congressman in advocacy of impeachment.
    Snip...

    The day after Inauguration Day, Trump opponents staged counter-programming. Highlighting the day’s celebrations were an extremely odd speech by a B-list actress and a speech by a has-been pop-tart, the latter of whom shared that she had been thinking a lot about blowing up the White House. Across the country, people turned out wearing [vulgarity] hats and carrying vulgar signs, often with children in tow. The new slogan of Democratic politics was “Resist!” Not “Persuade!” or “I’d Prefer a Democrat!” but simply “Resist!”
    Snip...

    While all of this went on, leading Democratic figures continued to stoke the first of strident partisanship and political bitterness. Perhaps most notable in this regard was the public call by Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) – lately Hillary Clinton’s running mate – for Democrats to “fight in the streets!” Soon after Kaine issued this call, Clinton echoed it.
    There have been Democratic astroturf events on several different weekends across the country. Also, several Republican members of Congress have had their routine town hall meetings broken up by angry “constituents” (many from outside their districts) brandishing matching pre-fab signs and reciting similar talking points from one state to another.
    Mass media, seldom very proficient at feigning political neutrality, have played their role in fanning the partisan fires. Late-night television, once the province of Johnny Carson, now ranges from moderately anti-Trump Jimmy Fallon to “Are-you-bored-of-this-yet?” Stephen Colbert. Late-late-night television’s reigning eminence, former Saturday Night Live writer/host Seth Meyers, was told by his network, NBC, to eschew neutrality altogether. His go-to gag is (yes, truly) to mock the president’s skin color. This comes as no surprise from the network that told SNL it must not run any mockery of Clinton during election year.
    Snip...

    With all of this in mind, I predicted a couple of weeks ago on a syndicated Florida radio program that there would be substantial violence. When people are taught to disrespect every single element of our political culture, and when they are told unceasingly that their political opponents are “Nazis! Nazis! Nazis!” it’s not surprising that some guy would pick up a rifle and go shoot the House majority whip

    Theyve been violent all along, this was the ultimate escalation
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    The Left has always used violence. It's a sign of their desperation and lack of a bonafide cause.

    You can only preach hate and advocate violence with your rhetoric for so long before some zealot acts on it.

    Trump is to blame for a left wing zealot committing an act of violence?

    One Democrat went on a shooting spree targeting Republicans and suddenly "Democrats" are violent. Great logic there.

    Sure, just one isolated example.....

    Remember the thread here on this very forum where a special needs teen was abducted by 3 Thugs and tortured for 3 days and uploaded on the web and the whole while his tormenters saying, Trump this and Trump that? Probably not.
