The left has become a bullying mob, utilizing the tools of violence and intimidation. Civility has been lost entirely. What they can’t secure rationally they attempt to seize in a hostile fashion. I can think of only one President who would have stood up to this mob intimidation that is now the hallmark of the left. Let’s share some of the examples.

Susan Collins has been a Profile in Courage despite left wing threats
Most will never know the full extent of the efforts to intimidate & threaten @SenatorCollins on the #Kavanaugh vote. I am not talking about political pressure or people screaming at her in an elevator. I am talking about vicious, vile & dangerous actions. She is legit. https://t.co/XVYQ4pDvg6

Watch as the left wing robots are programmed. This could be straight out of Jonestown.
Jason Selvig attempted to incite violence against Brian Kilmeade of Fox and Friends
Here’s an episode of the walking dead
Just like the 2nd Act of a horror film where a virus(leftism)which turns humans into vicious violent creatures, has ravaged the city. A few sane people take refuge in a building while the infected are trying to force open the doors!!!😰https://t.co/UTJkjRZuLv

Rep. Gerald Nadler promises to impeach Kavanaugh if his confirmation cannot be stopped. Failing that, he’ll likely hire an assassin. (There was a time when that might have sounded hyperbolic, but no more)
Now watch the mindlessness of the left. Listen carefully. This is hysterical.
Here is a now deleted tweet from a Colbert show writer:
Not everyone was a bully
here’s Nancy Pelosi explaining the democrat playbook
And it continues
Amid Kavanaugh furor & threats to mbrs, Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) tells Fox that his wife received a text with a video attachment showing a gruesome beheading. Someone has has also released the names of and addresses of his family members.

And they put this idiot on Meet the Press Today
This is unacceptable. The problem conservatives face is that they do not resort to this outrageous behavior, but you have to wonder where the limit is.
The GOP has never treated a democrat nominee like this:
Let’s be clear: The GOP has never borked a Democratic nominee to the Supreme Court. Objections to Democratic nominees were made based on their judicial record, not upon wild, far-fetched accusations of personal misconduct, produced only when all other avenues failed.
There was no attempt whatsoever by the GOP to bork either Sonia Sotomayor or Elena Kagan, President Barack Obama’s first two picks for the top court. Both of those nominees sailed through with hardly a ripple.
When the Senate didn’t give Obama’s last Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland a vote, it followed established Senate rules when it did so. It didn’t violate any rule or process for court nominations. The Republican senators certainly didn’t try any 11th-hour character assassination of Garland in an attempt to keep him off the Supreme Court.
But here’s the best video of all

By like I said, only Donald Trump would refuse to knuckle under to this horrible behavior that is now the norm for the left. Anything less would be the validation of the violence and intimidation as the gutless Lisa Murkowski has done.
Someone has “doxxed” almost all of the Republicans on the Hill.
There were reports that most of the Senator Reps and some of the House Reps were being called on their private cell phones by protesters.
Those cell phone numbers are kept secret and shared to only family, friends & staffers.
A staffer computer might have a partial list of them because they are contacted by the boss often enough.
So, perhaps it was Cosko again.
We don’t know at present.
Trump won by ignoring the media threats and trusting the message of growth and strength to the American people to allow them to draw the contrasts between anti-American socialism and restoring the values of this nation which made it strong and wealthy and a beacon to the world. The PEOPLE have seen through the media cover for the liberal agenda and the sickening tactics it now takes to further that agenda against the new awareness.
It is a leap of faith for other politicians to try ignoring what the media can do to them, but as long as they promote a message the people accept, it is the ONLY path and the only way to, finally, force the media to reform itself.
Flake, of course, is not one of those who will ever have such faith.
Those people beating on the doors of the Supreme Court represent Hillary’s radical liberalism trying to get in. It can’t, at least not for another generation or so.
The downside is the scream mobs will feel the necessity to descend to the next level, so it is best to be prepared for it.
the girls thinking “I could be at a party!”
Yes there needs to be an intensive investigation about the phone calls, the entire government needs to take security seriously. Perhaps it was a Chinese spy?
Wake the hell up! You’re being encouraged to engage in psychological projection. This is how the unwary are turned into a mob. It’s a way to get people to turn off reason so they can be easily manipulated through emotion.
@Greg: The unthinking have already been turned into a mob. A liberal mob. A fascist mob that doesn’t respect or allow any other viewpoints.
You tolerate it because it rises from the kind of politics the Democrats have chosen to employ nowadays, but the rest of the country is sickened by it. As long as the Democrats show this is how they prefer to govern, they will be driving supporters away. You will be left with nothing but radical, selfish, spoiled fascists.
Running radical socialists like Warren, Booker, Harris, Bernie or whatever else you can dredge up between now and 2020 won’t do you much good, as won’t running the dimwitted sexual assailant Biden. I can’t imagine who you Democrats might run because you don’t accept anything but far, far leftism. Enjoy the bed you have made for yourself. Pleasant dreams.
The Trump administration is a particularly vile bit of excrement floating in an unflushed toilet, and people such as yourself are self-appointed monitors guarding the flush lever. That’s pretty much how I see the situation at this point, and my mind and vision are unclouded.
This situation won’t be allowed to go on forever. Too many people are aware of the rising stink.
You wake the hell up, Greggie Gullible. It was not conservatives that were protesting in the streets of D.C., accosting Senators in elevators, sending threating emails to Senators, and their family members, harassing Senators at their homes, breaking down barricades, shouting in the Senate like screeching harpies, beating on the doors of the SCOTUS and repeating what they were told in the halls of the Senate like something out of Orwell’s 1984.
Your side wanted a mob, and a mob you got. But you need to remember one thing, if, and when, the shite ever hits the fan, it is not your side that is armed to the teeth. And your pussy hats are no match for my Coyote Special if I am ever attacked by one of your loons.
Yep. And that’s why the Democrats are now trying to moonwalk their despicable behavior the last few weeks. And why your left wing Slate is worried about Republican women getting out the vote for the right side.
The stink you’re smelling came from Democrats crapping in their own nests.
McConnell: These things always blow over
You stood up for the presumption that Kavanaugh’s accusers were lying, jackass. Innocence is properly presumed in a court of law, not in the context of a nominee to the Supreme Court’s confirmation hearing. You don’t confirm if there’s credible doubt about a nominee’s truthfulness and judicial temperament. You don’t presume these things to exist unless they can be proven not to. This is a confirmation hearing, not the O J Simpson murder trial.
Yeah, and you’re still facilitating a lying, immoral conman’s shakedown of the entire nation, you partisan f-ck head. The label reading Republican or Democrat is not an infallible litmus tests for anything. The opportunist in the White House has changed that label whenever doing so seemed advantageous. He’s called himself a Republican, a Democrat, and an Independent, just as he’s reversed positions on issues any time it seemed personally beneficial.
@Greg: Don’t you wish you had run a better candidate than Hillary? Or Bernie? Talk about leaving turd marks on the bowl as they flushed down…
Now we’ve got to put up with this 4.6% growth, 3.7% unemployment, record high labor participation, record low black unemployment, record low Hispanic unemployment, record low women unemployment, rising wages, record high consumer confidence, favorable trade agreements, addressing trade deficits, addressing unfair trade tariffs, greater respect for the United States around the world… what the hell are we going to do?
Oh my, Greggie Gullible seems to be going off the rails today.
Any of them would have been preferable to Putin’s Choice.
@retire05: I guess he didn’t get his Soros check and bus ticket so he could be properly outraged to beat on the Supreme Court doors and him widdle fewwings are hurted.
Hillary is a criminal liar and Putin’s whore while Bernie is a socialistic sexual deviant. Maybe better from a socialist’s point of view, but devastating to the country.
@Deplorable me: Greg missed the news about the sworn testimony about parts of the dossier coming directly through the DNC to the FBI then using that to spy on the Trump campaign, So hillary and her deviant co-horts write a fairy tale and that was used as evidence for a warrant, yes they want the Woods proceedure now, how was this verified, why did you swear under oath to the FISA court that it was? Add the texts that the POTUS wanted to know EVERYTHING and we are getting a clear picture of corruption and weaponizing all executive departments to try to influence an election, not by Russia but by our own government and the DNC.
No other President would have stood up to this because no other President had to. Like the sloppy Skankgate, we also have a sloppy Spygate , they need to declassify, arrest, and give a fair trial to all involved.
Expect all hell to break loose when they do, this little protest will look like a picnic.
You forgot to mention that we have a nincompoop in the White House, and are running trillion-dollar-a-year deficits when there was no need at all for top-heavy tax cuts to stimulate anything. It’s another cash grab by those who have far more than enough already, financed by running up an already astronomical debt that will bring down the nation’s social safety net.
That’s not some right-wing conspiracy theory—it’s an accurate description of what’s presently happening, and thanks very much for that.
He’s gone. Trump’s there now. We wouldn’t have such deficits if the Democrats would support the Republican budget.
No, I think that there has been more than one person posting as “Greg” here.
The first one that I encountered was years ago, he was pretty calm and respectful in his disagreement with people here. He was actually kind of likable.
The second one came along a couple of years ago, kind of out there in La-La Land.
This is a new one, notice the profanity/name calling? I haven’t seen that here before.
It’s as if Soros is hiring different people to play “Greg”, each more unhinged than the previous one.
I want the old Greg back.
@Petercat: Perhaps the “new” Greg is simply the “old” Greg with a serious case of liberal butthurt due to supporting a corrupt lying criminal that got beat by Trump.
Don is clearly the best President in 30 years! but not the only President to stand up the progressive FASCISTS – Ron did it many times from ’66 to ’88 for an example DuckDuck “I paid for this mike!”!
@Petercat: The old Greg was lost when 90% chance of winning Hillary went down in flames, now impeachment is joining that dream. I say Nunes 2024 https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/devin-nunes-says-ex-top-fbi-lawyers-testimony-is-absolute-proof-of-fisa-abuse.
@kitt: No collusion by Trump, LOTS of collusion by Democrats. Anymore investigation of Trump will look like a Democrat confession.
Seems you might be right. The (radical) Greg showed up about the time Obama was running his last campaign. I remember accusing him of being one of those pajama wearing basement dwellers that Obama hired to troll conservative web sites. He has continued to get more delusional with each year.
Christine Blasey Ford still unable to live at home due to death threats, lawyers say
@Greg: So, is this a situation where Democrats don’t like death threats? She could use some of the $1 million GoBribeMe money to hire some security.
@Greg: Let her cry to her senator, her privacy was so well protected…right? Feinstein is really rich perhaps she should cover her victims damages.
Clearly those who are reporting threatened violence from the left are leaving a little something out of the story. A woman who came forward to accuse a republican Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault is still receiving death threats. That’s a bit different than angry female protesters giving unresponsive elected officials a piece of their mind.
“Nancy Pelosi explaining the democrat playbook” is a another lie, of course. You know perfectly well that she was talking about tactics being used on your side of the line.
Trump lies constantly, and his tools and enablers lie constantly to support, protect, and and enable him.
@Greg: They are reporting their examples everyone knows Feinstein used that poor nutjob for her own ends and is responsible for anything that happens to her.
Now why put all those politicians families in danger? More democrat political fun, voters will have none of this.
The blue wave might be the same as the wave of blue tears of Nov 2016. The near 1000 seats lost under Obama because of failed policies.
These Leftists have a Chant it says: ‘This is what Democracy looks like’
Their interpretation of Democracy is actually Mob Rule. A couple of hundred years ago those unhinged people would have had instead of cell phones, Pitch Forks, torches and probably clubs for good (Mob) measure.
Make no mistake though, this is Paid Opposition. These people are paid to agitate and disrupt. And this is Not Representative of how the country feels, which is what they want everyone to think.
Thank God this leftist Clown Show is over.
I made it accurate. Note that the family of the man she falsely accused are receiving death threats as well. So is Susan Collins, who merely considered the evidence then voted for truth and justice. I would have to see evidence, such as police reports where they have reported them to authorities, to believe it actually happened. Beyond that, despite my abhorrence of that left wing tactic, I can’t have sympathy with someone that played (or allowed to be played) her false accusation for maximum political effect.
Remember us saying if you keep promoting violence as a political tactic, it was going to spread? Well, tell Ford you are sorry; it’s YOUR fault.
Pelosi was accurately describing what Democrats do time after time.
It’s not over. It’s not near over.
MoveOn.org announced that its call the night after Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation would feature Ana Maria Archila, the Colombia-born sexual-assault victim who cornered Sen. Jeff Flake in a Senate elevator last month and screamed “Look at me!” She is co-executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy. Her salary was listed as $156,333, with a bonus of $21,378, in a recent Internal Revenue Service 990 form.
@kitt: Is it important to bring the actual criminal to justice for these victims, or will simply any man do?
@Deplorable me: These whacks? only every man will do, they harm victims more than help.
Greg, that’s nonsense. Utter nonsense. You know how many black men have been incarcerated falsely by this reasoning?
@DrJohn: That’s just the blank check Democrats use to attack candidates they can’t legally defeat.
You’re right. Watch this. See how mindless the left has become.
@Greg: Actually, I imagine Putin would’ve been happy to have the hildebeast in office. He already knew she had no morals and was for sale to the highest bidder. Remember Uranium 1?
Greg misses all the news as he only believes libturd propaganda.
I not only remember it. I took the time to learn the facts, which don’t support the accusations. They pretty much kick the props out from under the entire conspiracy theory.
@Bookdoc:Conspiracy theory, like the theory of the atom, or that real crazy one that invisible bugs cause illness? Ooooo big bad strategic assests like whats the big deal? Like raw materials for nuclear warheads could mean diddly anyway…WHAT EVER.
Examples of the “Democrat inspired mob violence” that recently threw DC into total chaos. (Admittedly you have to use your imagination.)
@kitt: And that $500,000 payday for a 30 minute “speech” was just a coincidence. Nothing to be suspicious about. Meanwhile, the fact that there is a Russia on the map CONFIRMS Trump colluded, so let’s investigate it for 3 years.
Keep in mind they are protesting an unfounded and proven false accusation. Now, why do people suddenly organize a mob to protest in favor of a falsehood?
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ is why.
There were no “mobs” protesting Kavanaugh’s nomination. There were citizens peacefully exercising their constitutionally guaranteed right to gather and publicly express their opinions. The “mob violence” your lying fraud in the White House claims to have happened never happened. It doesn’t matter how many of his republican tools repeat the same moronic words and same moronic phrases over and over. There was no mob. There was no violence. There were no Soros-paid demonstrators. Nobody had to pay women who felt very strongly about what was happening to show up and demonstrate their feelings about it. Nor was Kavanaugh “proven innocent.” He was proven nothing. He was confirmed despite controversy and unresolved questions. That is an honest description of what happened. Kavanaugh’s critics are evil? That’s crazy talk.
Nor do you have to swarm to the ballot boxes and vote for every republican dirt bag on the ballot to save the country from mob rule, leftist violence, and the rise of some boogey man of a socialist totalitarian state. That’s crazy talk. It should be properly viewed as blatant manipulation and as an insult to your intelligence.
Well, yes, as a matter of fact there was. Some of them were actually in the gallery. Some were ILLEGALLY protesting during the final vote.
During the actual hearings, the protesters got so bad Kavanaugh’s CHILDREN had to be removed for their own safety. The two Soros drones that accosted Flake in the elevator were intimidating and threatening. They’ve illegally blocked access to public buildings and were banging on the doors of the Supreme Court. We’ve all seen what they are capable of, so any time they congregate in large groups, it becomes a potentially dangerous situation that must be closely watched and defenses kept ready.
They were MOSTLY Soros paid phony protesters.
Actually, you are wrong again. Since he was already INNOCENT (unless PROVEN guilty… you know… with, like, PROOF and stuff) and NONE of the accusations against him were proven even NEARLY valid, he was proven to STILL be INNOCENT. Also proven was that Feinstein didn’t even believe the accusations, liberals do not honor truth or justice and the left will violate ANY rule or law to try to bring down our government.
Yes, those who dreamed up and executed that slime, sewer tactic against Kavanaugh are as evil as evil can get. There are no moral constraints on their actions, so they are as likely to murder to achieve their goals as destroy an innocent man and his family with lies.
Right now, the best tonic for this nation is to try and defeat every liberal that competes for a vote. Perhaps one day, Democrats will restore their own honor enough to drive out the Schumer’s, Booker’s, Pelosi’s, Watters’, Warren’s, Cortez’s and their ilk and decide to pick some human beings to lead their party. Even giving Hillary a platform from which to speak shows the lowest regard for morality, honesty, self esteem and civility, yet you still do.
@Deplorable me, #43:
Bullshit. How about posting some links to videos showing these “violent mobs”? If violent leftist mob behavior was so widespread, surely somebody had a video camera to record it. Women holding up signs and chanting is not mob violence. It’s a peaceful, constitutionally protected exercise of freedom of assembly and freedom of expression.
I’ve got videos galore of old white male republican a-holes making this sh-t up, and trying to methodically stir up anger and fear to energize their base by telling outright lies. What they found intimidating were crowds of outraged people letting them know their feelings in no uncertain terms. What scares the crap out of them is thinking that those same people are going to show up at the midterm election polling places and express the same feelings at the ballot box.
Trump and his assorted tools and fools may have made lying from the White House and the floors of Congress the norm, but they haven’t made it OK, and they sure as hell haven’t made it invisible to anybody with eyes to see, ears to hear, and a brain to think. Want proof? It’s coming.
liberal news paper
@Greg: @Greg: @Greg:
Those that run these soros.orgs make 6 figures to stir up useful hypocrites er idiots.
These orgs are being paid through State Dept grants as exposed by Justice Watch FOIA I dont like my tax dollars distributed to professional agitators.
Not the only way Obama funneled money into progressive orgs https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/264647/bank-fines-elect-democrats-matthew-vadum
Would it be right to redirect this money to right wing organizations like NRA or heritage foundation?
Uh, are you aware of things called satire and sarcasm? Because Chicago Tribune reporter Rex Hupple is dishing it out in that article with an oversize shovel.
Matthew Vadum, the guy that penned the second article, is a hack right-wing writer who makes his living cranking out bullshit conspiracy theories. Most recently he’s pedaling an 85-page book asserting that Trump’s enemies and pro-Sharia jihadists are in cahoots to destroy American. The publication his Bank Fines article is in belong to David Horowitz, a former Marxist activist.
The right has lost its grip on reality.
Why don’t you turn on some coverage besides MSNBC, CNN, NBC, CBS or ABC. Listent to someone besides Soros’ megaphones. Experience some reality instead of leftist reality.
Do you think it is wise to encourage people to gather in crowds and confront the opposition, taking into account the incidents of violence we have seen repeated around the country? Is it right to broadcast an appeal to intimidate to people whose mentality and violent nature are unknown? When it comes to political violence, one ideology here is responsible for most if not all of the violence; is it responsible for political leaders to provoke MORE of it?
Don’t respond with something stupid like “show me a video”; just answer the questions. You know there is a tendency to violence among leftists and such calls to arms can be easily and quickly “misinterpreted” (though I think violence and intimidation is the precise point) and a simple confrontation an quickly get out of hand. It keeps getting ramped up to higher levels; if the left doesn’t reel it in, no one else can.
Scalise and Rand Paul would be glad to know there has never been any political violence directed at conservatives. So would Sara Sanders, Ted Cruz and the Kavanaugh family.
The left has become violent, Democrat leaders promote it and violence has ensued.
@Greg: Do you know how many sources there are for the fines being diverted, I try to avoid giving fox news any clicks, and the State dept grants thats from government documentaion, should we divert those grants to right wing causes? The photos of the guy handing out cash to protestors that later got arrested. Who printed up the signs? Those are not free.
You should look into it you would look so adorably cute in one of those “C” costumes.
We are aware of Davids past. Are you aware of Dr. Fords past, her oh so fun college days? She really made Kavs ralph club look like geeky nerds.
@Deplorable me: Im sure you saw the Antifa causing 3K in damage to the elderly gentlemans auto, there were police all around and they were told to not confront them, the Mayor of Portland needs to be recalled. They were out there blocking traffic and harassing tax payers for over 6 hours. His body shop repair bill should be sent to her and come out of her own purse.
@kitt: Amazing how much violence and property damage it takes to “fight fascism”, isn’t it? Do you ever see Pelosi or Schumer denounce that violence and demand it stop?
