On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) said Democrats must take advantage of “public outcry against the [Trump] administration].” Kaine said Democrats must fight back in Congress, the courts, and in the streets.
“What we’ve got to do is fight in Congress, fight in the courts, fight in the streets, fight online, fight at the ballot box, and now there’s the momentum to be able to do this,” Kaine said to Democrats. “And we’re not afraid of the popular outcry, we’re energized by it and that’s going to help us do our job and do it better.”
Here we go again — Another Leftist MOB boss dog-whistling to their unhinged supporters — One of these street fights is going to turn deadly and Democrats will have blood on their hands.
Although, many of us would like to meet these douchebags in the streets…
Nancy Pelosi on the Democratic agenda: “If there’s some collateral damage, for some others that don’t share our view, well so be it.” Collateral damage?
Republican politicians, their staffers and the offices where they work have become a recurring target for political violence. California congressional candidate Rudy Peters, who is challenging Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell, narrowly escaped a stabbing attempt in September. Peters’ attacker, Farzad Fazeli, shouted disparaging remarks about Republicans before attempting to stab the GOP candidate with a switchblade, police said.
An operative with Democratic political group American Bridge was arrested in March for assaulting a female staffer in President Donald Trump’s administration. The liberal operative allegedly shoved the woman, a press secretary for Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, to the floor as he chased after Zinke.
That same American Bridge operative, Wilfred Stark, was arrested for chasing and assaulting Nevada gubernatorial nominee Adam Laxalt’s campaign manager. Stark was charged with battery for the attack, which left the woman bruised, as well as “terrified and traumatized.”
A Republican Party office in Laramie, Wyoming, was set on fire just days after opening in September. Police said the fire appeared to have been intentional, though they have not yet arrested any suspects.
Vandals in July threw a brick through the window of the Nebraska Republican Party’s headquarters. Republican staffers found a spray-painted message beneath the broken window: “ABOLISH ICE.”
Minnesota state Rep. Sarah Anderson said she was attacked on Sunday after calling out a man who has kicking over campaign yard signs. “I said, ‘You can’t do this!’ And he said, ‘Yes, I can, I’m an anarchist! I can do whatever I want!’ And I said, ‘No, you can’t, that’s not your property,’” Anderson said, adding that the man chased her into the street and told her to kill herself.
Another Minnesota Republican, state Rep. Shane Mekeland, said he received a concussion on Oct. 12 when he was assaulted by a man he believed was politically motivated. “While I had never met my assailant, the words he yelled at me before he attacked lead me to believe his actions were politically motivated,” Mekeland said in a statement Sunday, adding that the police are investigating.
Vandals in New York smashed the windows of the Metropolitan Republican Club on Oct. 11 and left graffiti warnings. The perpetrators left behind anarchist graffiti and a warning: “Our attack is merely a beginning.”
The above listed physical attacks are in addition to an onslaught of harassment and death threats that Republican politicians and their staffers have faced in the Trump era.
