A Democratic operative for American Bridge 21st Century, a group funded by leftist billionaire George Soros, was arrested recently after the female campaign manager for Nevada GOP gubernatorial nominee Adam Laxalt accused the operative of grabbing and yanking her arm and refusing to let go. Kristin Davison said the assault “terrified and traumatized” her… and left her with bruises on her neck and arms. #MeToo, Democrats?
William Davis, a Minnesota Democratic Party communications staffer, recently made a Facebook post stating that Democrats should “bring Republicans to the guillotine” on November 7th, the day after the midterm elections. The state’s Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party suspended him for one—count it—one week without pay.
This after two other Minnesota GOP representatives were attacked in recent days. State representative Sarah Anderson was punched in the arm after witnessing a man destroying Republican yard signs. She ran to her car and sped off to get away from her assailant. Anderson told the Washington Free Beacon, “It was just insane. He was charging at me, saying, ‘Why don’t you go kill yourself?’” #MeToo, Democrats?
Shane Mekeland, a first-time state representative candidate, suffered a concussion after getting sucker-punched while speaking with constituents at a restaurant in Benton County. Mekeland was cold-cocked while sitting at a high-top table in a local eatery. He hit his head on the floor after being knocked off his seat. He told the Free Beacon he has experienced memory loss since the assault. Doctors told him it will take four to six weeks for him to recover.
The violent assaults have caused both Anderson and Mekeland to make changes in how they campaign in the closing days of their races. Mekeland is, assumedly temporarily, unable to leave his home to campaign due to his concussion-induced sensitivity to sunlight. He said he and his volunteers will only travel in pairs for the rest of the campaign, limiting the ground they can cover. Anderson says her husband and other volunteers have offered to escort her around the district until election day. She exclaimed: “I refuse to be bullied and intimidated.”
Democrats and Antifa types in Portland recently took it upon themselves to “direct traffic,” telling motorists where they could and could not go. One elderly driver was harassed, another became fearful and was chased down. They bashed in his car. Through all of this, the police stood down. Which is why decent people must rise up.
MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace recently admitted that she prodded Jeb Bush to physically attack Donald Trump, saying: “I told Jeb Bush after that debate that I thought he should have punched [Trump] in the face.” Wallace noted that Bush would’ve been “a hero” if he had assaulted Trump. She has previously opined that it must be terribly difficult for White House correspondents to resist the urge to “wring” Sarah Sanders’ neck.
Rapper “T.I.” recently posted a promotional video that shows a Melania Trump look-alike stripping in the Oval Office and giving him a lap-dance. A spokesperson for Melania has called for a boycott of the rapper because of the vile video. Good luck with that.
The Democrats have become the Party of Crime, the Party of Violence, the Party of Decadence, the Party of Sloth. They are the Party of Intolerance. They have literally morphed into the Party of Evil. I take no joy in saying that. I am a classical liberal, alá the Founders. I could conceivably have been a Truman or Kennedy Democrat.
But the Democratic platform is now: abortion on demand, higher taxes, government regulation of all things, and the ends justify the means, no matter what, period. Progressives are aided and abetted by virtually the entirety of the mainstream media, who side with them 90% of the time, credibility be damned.
Compare the limited media interest in-- and reaction to-- the above-mentioned “incidents” with the following “stories.”
Student protesters are demanding that the University of Southern California fire a long-time professor after he said that “accusers sometimes lie” in an email that went campus-wide.
Mary Bono, USA Gymnastics CEO, resigned October 16th due to the massive backlash against her social media post in which she crossed out the Nike symbol on her shoe in protest of the company’s collaboration with former NFL player and social activist Colin Kaepernick. Bono said her post was triggered by Nike’s use of the phrase “sacrifice everything.” Kaepernick is a young African-American millionaire who has repeatedly knelt for the National Anthem and fomented protests that many feel are disrespectful to military veterans who have lost their lives in service of their country.
Assaults, beheadings, concussions, wrung necks: none of these acts rise to the level of an unhinged person daring to publicly say that not every accuser is honest. Nor to someone deliberately attempting to obscure the small symbol of a large corporation…on her own shoe.
If you think otherwise, you’d better watch your back. And your neck. And everything else, too.
