Unless the Democrat Left Stops Promoting Hate, There Will Be More Violence

In the aftermath of yesterday’s attempted mass murder of Republican congressmen (which was stopped only by Steve Scalise’s security detail and the would-be assassin’s sub-par shooting skills), the knee-jerk reactions from the Democrat left included “they deserved it because they voted against Obamacare” and “they deserved it for being against gun control” and “they deserved it for being racist.”

And this lovely Posh Being weighed in again.

More threats followed.

After the attack, the office of Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.) received an email reading “One down, 216 to go”. Congressman Tom Garrett (R-Va.) needed security after receiving threats reading, “This is how we’re going to kill your wife”. Other threats described graphic atrocities against his daughters and even his dog.

Congresswoman Martha McSally (R-AZ.) went to the FBI after phone messages warning, “Martha our sights are set on you, right between your **** eyes” and “Can’t wait to **** pull the trigger.”

Democrats have used hate to fuel their political fortunes for quite a long time. From Dan Savage’s “I wish all Republicans would drop dead” to Hillary Clinton’s proud statement that “Republicans are my enemies,” to a Seattle City Councilwoman proclaiming “I don’t have any Republican friends” (she was cheered and applauded), the Democrat Left has promoted a climate of hate against Republicans. “Republicans are racist. Republicans are homophobic. Republicans hate poor people and want them to die.” Hate is what makes rich leftists write checks to the DNC. Hate is what drives the Democrat base to the polls. Hate has become the tool Democrats are most familiar and comfortable with using.

I don’t think they can stop. I don’t think Democrats know of any way, other than promoting hate against Republicans, to win elections. And as long as hate is acceptable, there will be violence.

I fear that the attempted mass murder of Republicans in Alexandria was not the apex of the left’s campaign of violent resistance against Republicans, but a harbinger of more violence to follow.

  2. Obama said “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.” If any republican ever said anything like that the media would repeat it for days as proof that the right wants everyone to die by gunfire.

  3. Hate is the personality trait that made people uncomfortable watching Mrs. Clinton in public. She had to use so much of her energy suppressing the seething hate it made it impossible for her to connect with real people.

    This does not bode well for the progressives in 2018. The progressives are so wrapped up in their echo chambers they can’t see this is doing way more harm than good. There are services now that capture tweets even after they are deleteD, the same with FB pages/comments/like. They will make great campaign tools for Republican PACS.

  6. Until there are electoral consequences for promoting hate, politicians will continue to use it as a tool to win elections.

  7. The left — they hate us “right wingers” (*) for our freedom — of thought.

    That’s what.

    (*) basically, anyone who isn’t not a leftist/commie/SJWs/identity politics attention ho/perpetual victimhood contestant.

  9. Until there are real penalties for people who assault or destroy property because people oppose them politically, the violence will continue to ratchet up. That woman that assaulted the Congressman with her car isn’t going to see the inside of a prison cell, I kid you not. And the fact these people can’t even get arrested (as cops are told to stand down), is beyond a joke.

  10. The only way these threats are going to stop is for the government to drop a house on some of these people. A few of these people being sentenced to lengthy prison terms might deliver a needed message.

    Yes, there are a few wackos on the right but they can’t hide behind the Democrat machine. The wacko-left seems to not care that, at some point, they will activate the wacko-right.

    Mark Steyn’s latest Steyn Post suggests several questions. One that occurred to me is “what’s the difference between the Charlie Hebdo killers and antifa?”. Antifa and its admirers don’t want an argument or debate. They want to forbid debate and are willing to use force to shut up people that won’t get with the program.

  11. Tucker Carlson sat back as Mark Steyn nailed the liberals:

    “The left wants to denormalize and dehumanize, to use your words, its political opposition. They do that in a variety of ways. For example, when Charles Murray wants to give a speech at Middlebury College, they have to have a riot. They don’t have a debate in which they demolish his arguments. They don’t want to win the debate. They want to prevent the debate from taking place.”

    “They want to label somebody a hater. If you happen to think that Obamacare is not the best public policy, it is because you want grannies and urchins to die. Once you do that, you’re basically saying, there is no form of civilized political discourse possible with your opponent and the logic of that is that instead you riot and you beat them up, as they do at Middlebury. You poison them, as happened to Robert Spencer, who is well-known to this network, when he gave a speech in Iceland recently, or you open fire on them. You make politics impossible if you do that.”

    “There’s a religious quality to the way they approach politics. Do you notice that?”

    “If you have people like the Southern Poverty Law [Center], which has become fabulously wealthy by labeling everyone they disagree with as a hate group, if you keep calling everybody a hater, and in fact, if your organization calls people haters, you are the hater. I would like to disagree with the tone of what we have heard today, including in the last hour for Martha MacCallum and Brit Hume, when they were talking about unity and will this unity last?”

    “Obviously, the unity won’t last because ultimately, Rand Paul has very little that unites him with Bernie Sanders. We don’t actually need unity. We need robust, civilized disunity — people honestly recognizing that they disagree with each other on health care, on immigration, on Islam, on transgender bathrooms, and a bazillion other things, but that doesn’t make the other person a hater. Simply put, the left has to be willing to actually engage in debate with people that disagree with them.”

    What’s to add to that? Liberals have sacrificed both their brains and their sense of common decency.

    Steyn went on to decry the fact that liberals no longer have the ability to debate issues. Steyn says their brains have atrophied. I think they have gone so deep into exalting their “feelings” above intellect that they have painted themselves into the stupidity corner.

  12. #10, KCRob, I agree. Perhaps US Attorneys should be directed to bring Incitement to Riot charges against a whole raft of people. The charges would be as plain as day & simple statements would override any problem of “proving intent”.

  14. The democrats will never stop promoting hate. It’s all they have.
