Today Rand Paul warned that there might be an “assassination” if those who are “ratcheting up the conversation” don’t start toning it down. As a guy who was attacked and badly beaten just last year, he knows what he’s talking about. We should listen to him.
But, as I detailed yesterday, Democrats are headed rapidly and resolutely in the other direction. Many prominent Democratic figures and lawmakers have explicitly encouraged the chaos and violence. Many others have remained approvingly silent. Eric Holder is the latest Democrat to try his hand at stirring up a mob. He told a cheering crowd, “When they go low, we kick them.” He also called for “rage,” and, most startlingly, openly questioned the “legitimacy” of the Supreme Court.
Now, when Holder calls into question the legitimacy of our governing institutions, and Maxine Waters tells her supporters to follow Republicans around and “tell them they’re not welcome anywhere,” and Hillary Clinton assures us that liberals “cannot be civil” because Republicans are so evil, and Mazie Hirono justifies mob behavior by calling the mobbing hordes “motivated,” and Cory Booker exhorts his base to “get up in the faces” of Republican congressmen, we must conclude one of two things:
1) These leading Democrats are too stupid to know what they’re doing.
2) These leading Democrats know exactly what they’re doing.
I do not think they’re stupid. That leaves only the second option. The only real question is whether Democrats are simply unconcerned with the violence they might cause or if they actively want the violence. I think there is plenty of reason to suspect the latter.
Politicians are calculated. Especially Democrat politicians. Especially Democrat politicians like Hillary Clinton. There is a reason why they have chosen now — with tensions so high, and anarchists in the street shutting down traffic and assaulting motorists, and senators’ families receiving graphic death threats — to start using particularly militant language. A guy like Eric Holder, who was the Attorney General of the United States not long ago, doesn’t announce that the “legitimacy of the Supreme Court can justifiably be questioned” on a whim. He well knows what happens when people begin to believe that the government is illegitimate.
Of course, there is one odd detail to consider here. The side that seems to be chumming the water for civil unrest is also the side that is famously opposed to gun ownership.
Well, Holder was the guy that ran guns to Mexican cartels with the intent of undercutting the 2nd Amendment. So, we’ve known what a scumbag he is for some time. He doesn’t mind seeing innocent people killed to benefit a political goal. Beyond any question, Hillary will sacrifice innocent lives to promote the liberal agenda.
Remember when Biden, in his infinite wisdom, recommended shooting a shotgun into the air as an acceptable means of self defense? One person who thought it was a good idea to listen to Biden went to jail for following his sage advice. Apparently, people actually LISTEN to what these idiots say and, yes, do the things they recommend. We’ve also had the Scalice shooting, the assaults on numerous Republicans and ANTIFA dancing on their strings like the good little puppets they are.
They purposely fight to keep schools defenseless against attack while they promote displays of violence to gain a political goal. It is something definitely to consider.
Rand Paul might start by shutting his own damn mouth.
Who the hell does he think is “ratcheting up the conversation?” What I’m hearing are dozens of goofball elected republicans repeatedly telling their already twitchy, gullible, armed-to-the-teeth constituents that violence is coming, and Donald Trump is the head goofball. This crazy, totally irresponsible message is being repeated across the entire right-wing propaganda media. They think they can use it as a means of energizing their base. No doubt they’d like it even better if they had a concrete example to point at.
These people need to be voted out of power this November and in 2020 as a public service and in the interest of public safety. They’re the domestic threat in “all enemies, foreign and domestic.”
Donald Trump warns of ‘violence’ if Republicans lose midterms
President Trump Warns Of Post-Election Violence
How about the liberals calling for “assassination”? Now, go ahead and deny that has happened; act ignorant and stupid. Who is “ratcheting up the conversation”? DEMOCRATS.
What do you suppose caused this guy to want a change to how politicians are chosen? Maybe the left wing uproar over the Electoral College? Ya think?
Now the idiot Watters, who openly called for provoking violence, blames Trump, her TARGET of the violence, for the mobs. No doubt, you agree with her. Be advised, many people simply aren’t that stupid.
Trump is correct. If Democrats had power, who thinks they would not utilize the political violence they have grown so fond of and used to on a wider scale? All your leaders have been calling for it.
Greg seems upset that the top democrats calling for violence are being exposed. That our President is warning of this violence. Pointing to the past, the violent protests in DC as he was being sworn in. The ugly angry mobs that gathered in DC for the confirmation process of a Supreme Court Justice. I guess Wretched Madcow did not report the numbers arrested over 200 during the first 3 days of the hearings, before the unfounded accusations. Approximately 20 disruptors were forcibly removed from the hearings, those given a passes to get in by Democrat politicians.
Peaceful protestors are not arrested there were perhaps thousands that were not arrested.
Its not the Republicans calling for getting into peoples faces or to kick people or to be uncivil until they get their power back.
Its responsible politicians warning their voters to be wary of mobs Greg rails against. Greg is a Democrat.
We will soon vote and after that get all the vacant government seats that the dems are blocking filled. Some nominees waiting over a year. I hope its back to work, not more of what the dems have shown us the way they want America…in flames.
@kitt: Of course, this didn’t just start when Trump won. When the Tea Party gained prominence, they were a constant target of violence by the left, even as THEY were falsely accused of violence and racism (remember the spitting and racial epithets accusations when Obamacare was passed?) And, what is the UNIVERSAL Democrat response to THEIR violence? Well, just like Greg’s….
“Nuh-Uh!!! YOU are!!”
What a convincing, adult response.
You should shut your own mouth, you blathering idiot. Rand Paul was viciously attacked IN HIS OWN DAMN YARD by some radical left winger such as yourself. His wife now sleeps with a gun next to her bed. Senator Paul is having frequent bouts of pneumonia due to his injuries and his health is not stable. And you, the biggest liar on this blog, wants him to shut up about the violence being done by the radicals on your side of the aisle that damn near took his life?
I find it hard to accept that you believe all the propaganda you put on this site. Are you really that stupid? (yes, I think you are) Or are you, as I have believed all along, a paid troll who defends the radical left? You have no soul, Greggie Gullible.
No, Kitt, he’s a Socialist.
Precisely. They want their ’60’s back. Jane Fonda, John Kerry, Billy Ayers, Barack Obama, Jr……you’re phones are ringing. Grab your Che’ banners and your bomb schematics. Greggie Glullible is calling.
Holder should be in prison with Obama,both the Clinton’s Al Bore and Obama,s entire cabinet and Moonbeam Brown and the mayors and city councils of all santcuary cities
He doesn’t. he just dutifully repeats it, as if someone ELSE might believe it.
@Deplorable Me, #5:
The Tea Party identity was cynically stolen by the GOP, which in turn was cynically hijacked by Donald effing Trump. That’s how you arrived at the present travesty of a porn-star humping, money worshiping, lie-a-minute confidence man as the torch bearer for “traditional American values.” Yet you think Democrats are the problem—along with any dissenting republicans, of course.
You really ought to step out of the delusion-inducing Trump disinformation bubble for a while and take a really close look at it from the outside, before he runs that crazy hamster ball straight over a cliff.
No, opposing him with an Ambassador killing, influence peddling, classified information leaking, uranium selling, perjury committing, corrupt, lying criminal got him elected, which has turned out to be tremendously fortunate for the American people. Much better than having the Iran/Russia catering community organizer incompetent still destroying the country.
YOU elected Trump, and we thank you.
I’d give you odds he’s a Trump supporter.
(A turn-around of the tactic being used by republicans, in case anyone misses the point. There’s a logical fallacy involved: Arguing from the specific to the general.)
Yes. But only deplorables. I continue to cling to my gun and my bible.
I suppose they think that they can kill off the love of freedom at the barrel of a gun.
This does not work.
A few good people will die. Then the consequences will set in and some other people will be put in jail.
Alas for the good people we will lose.
But what can you do? You can’t make a law against stupid.
@Greg: Yeah… it’s the Republicans that have all the heartburn about the Electoral College, ain’t it? Well, sit tight… we’ll find out.
